Entry for WYL Contest: Letter to Pooja

Here is the entry from panditG for Write Your Love Contest.

The letter is addressed to Pooja, a very modest and enthusiastic dancer in the film “Dil Toh Pagal Hai”.

The Letter

Dearest Pooja,

This is my first love letter (and probably the last one) to you. The last, I said because after denying Ajay, you have decided to go with Rahul. Rahul, who never believed in one true love in a lifetime. But, your simplicity and honest feelings towards the eternal love made Rahul understand what true love is.

This letter is an attempt to uncover my heart to you. Also, that I want to convey my truest feelings towards you. I reiterate that you are the one who has enamored me and made me believe in one true love in a lifetime. Your mesmerizing smile has always left me awe-struck. But, even in this state I would like to bestow my love upon you and reassure you that:

My love for you is very true,
which is offered by a rare few.
Don’t ever suspect its purity,
It’s as pure as morning dew.

Pooja, trust me; I am a staunch believer of the maxim –“Someone somewhere is made for you.” Time and again, not just seeing you, even imagining you, rings bell in my mind (Uparwala ghanti bajata hai!).

Actually, awaiting your reply, but even a sly smile on your face would give me a comfort of being connected with your neurons for few nanoseconds. And, that’s it what I can expect.

Soulfully yours,


End of the Letter

About the character: Pooja is the central character from the romantic film “Dil Toh Pagal Hai” released by Yash Raj Films in 1997. “Dil Toh Pagal Hai” is a very heartfelt love story with a sublime message that – ‘someone somewhere is made for you’. This film had great star-cast like Shahrukh Khan (Rahul), Madhuri Dixit (Pooja), Karishma Kapoor (Nisha) and Ajay (Akshay Kumar).

Pooja comes into the scene after Nisha accidentally gets her foot injured during the dance practice for Rahul’s dance show titled “Maya”. Rahul is in search of Nisha’s replacement and finds Pooja to fit the bill. Pooja eventually replaces Nisha and enters the dance troupe but also in Rahul’s life. But, Pooja is engaged to Ajay. The story revolves with a tailspin “Jo jeese chahe, woh aur kise chahe”.

    Good work and keep documenting your thoughts for those who cant catch them directly from ether!

    1. Thanks Bhupendra,

      You said it right.
      By these lines I have attempted to convey the intensity of my feelings to my love.
      Surely, I would keep documenting and posting such delicate thoughts as they are ethereal.
