Exactly a year ago, Neerja Bhanot's entire biopic came known to us in the Sonam Kapoor starrer 'Neerja.' Neerja Bhanot was the 23-year-old flight attendant who sacrificed her life in order to save the plane from being hijacked. While the entire story was already known to the nation, the way it unfolded gave the audience goosebumps and left everyone teary eyed while exiting the cinema hall. The movie, though, had a lot more than just Neerja's story – morals and life lessons, which were beautifully used as dialogues. Here's celebrating the first anniversary of Neerja by taking important life lessons from it.
"Sir main sirf apna kaam kar rahin ho, apna farz nibha rahi hoon. Jaise aap apna nibha rahe hain."
In the end, no caste, creed or religion matters, only humanity is important. Neerja chose to hide the American passports over her life.
Neerja had two elder brothers but her family always wished for a daughter. Shabana Azmi's speech on changing perspectives on women is a winner.
"Humare mein bhaiyo ko veer bolte hain. Veer ko behenein rakhi bandhti hain taaki wo unki raksha karein. Beheno se to koi nahi kehta raksha karne ko. Maine use kabhi nahi bataya, pata nahi kaha se usne sabke liye jeena seekh liya."
"Koi bhi galat kaam na karna, na karne dena. Hausla rakho, hausley sa sab thik ho jata hai.
And then the song
We saved the best for the last.The song Jeete Hai Chal is an important life lesson in itself.
