Funny how, when you're little, everyone around you seems to complain about time flying. Now it's my turn to say, "Gosh, time flies, it's been 10 years? It feels just like yesterday when I was a sophomore in college, and when Lagaan was released!" I feel old, yes. That's because our very own little Tipu is (probably) in college by now! :D
Jokes aside, it's been 10 years. And 10 years later, Lagaan continues to maintain relevance across cultures, geographies, histories, politics, and film industries. It offers countless lessons of love, hope, faith, struggle, teamwork, collaboration, understanding, innocence, patience, and perseverance. Perhaps most importantly, it serves as a reminder of the importance of saluting belief in goodness.
Lagaan Week this year will see more Lagaan goodness. In addition to recapping some of the highlights from past posts, I'll hypothesize some more (as I've grown accustomed to, by now). Add a couple of special guest posts to the mix, and I hope you enjoy this edition of Lagaan Week as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you.
As always, Lagaan Week is open to any and all contributions. If you're a blogger, please join in the fun and leave a comment to this post with a link to your article -- I'll be more than glad to feature it in.
Enjoy! And if you're still reading this blog, I thank you. It's that year in which it's all happening. If Lagaan didn't bring me back to the blog, nothing would. Such a fairy tale in so many ways.
Best wishes always,
