“Out of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a journey “. When we talk about journey the other word that comes to our mind is travelling.
According to Mark Amend “Travel is more than having a destination in mind ; it’s discovering a place in your heart you have never been before”.
For some people travel is a dream that comes true once a year for the annual vacation. For some it is a sweet plan or quality time they can spend with their loved ones. Fun, masti, adventure are some of the words that come across our mind when we are going to a new place. A new place means new : people, culture, language, food etc. Since a long time people of our country are fascinated by our favourite bollywood movies specially the destinations that are shown in those movies. Most of us have a secret desire to explore those locations and add a new chapter to our memories.
The movie “YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI” as stated above shows a reuniting trip of four friends. Strangers turned into life long friends. Photos were taken as they are the return ticket to the moment otherwise gone. The white snow even attracted the two opposite poles to each other. It’s not compulsory that on a school trip everyone like each other. You may dislike someone or like someone but a trip proves to be something that even changes most dreadful enemies into besties.
