“Jiyo, khush raho, muskurao...kyunki kya pata, kal ho na ho.” Isn't it strange how these simple words found so many takers amongst the likes of us at the beginning of this century? Even today, every first-timer and loyal fan will come back nursing the biting pain of 'realness' that Kal Ho Na Ho tried to serve to us on a platter.

Back in the day in 2003, some of us had been too naive to appreciate the grandeur of this tale of love, life and sacrifice that Aman, Naina and Rohit weaved for us on-screen. But years later, this timeless piece of creation continues to be a great life coach, guiding and helping us navigate through this labyrinth called life.

Aman and Rohit redefined what friendship and love meant for us in so many beautiful ways, which we never really managed to outgrow over the course of years. Kal Ho Na Ho also turned into a visual guide for millenials which taught us why it's important to not take life so seriously all the time. Also that there's no point in fretting over things that are beyond our control and why selfless love isn't always the most fairytale-esque experience to live through.

We tagged along Aman, Naina and Rohit's personal journeys, as each one of them fought their demons and overcame them (well, almost). How regardless of all the lemons life threw at them, they only chose to turn it into lemonade - something we have still failed to master even after so many years since we fell in love with this movie and the message it blared so loud and clear.

So, then, what does it tell us about you and me? Just that each one of us needs a little reminding every now and then, to recall why we fell in love with something in the first place. 

So, here are 5 ingenious ways Kal Ho Na Ho taught us how to not give two f*ucks to the world kyunki kya pata kal ho na ho:

1. There's Always A Silver Lining

We were taught this adage as kids, and still, it took a movie to really show us what it means in real life. While most often we continue to gripe over the 'wrongs' in our lives, we miss out on appreciating the goodness, kindness and happiness life bestows us with, in the most unexpected ways.

2. Love Doesn't Always Come In Our Favourite Wrapping

We may think we've found the person of our dreams, but that isn't always true. Our life will play out how it's supposed to and suddenly, we'll have a different face that we will associate to our one 'true' love who is supposed to be our partner in the truest sense of the word.

3. Enjoy Life With A Pinch Of Salt

In as many years of walking the face of the earth, one thing is clear. Things will not go as planned on most occasions, but regardless of every hiccup and every setback, we must continue to play along with this game called life.

4. Forgive & Forget Isn't Cliche

It's easier to hold grudges but the best remedy for a troubled existence is to forgive and forget. And the sooner we learn to apply that to our lives, the sooner we'll learn to live more freely and happily, unperturbed by the evil ways of this world.

5. Good Friends & A Great Love Will Always See You Through

A good life is really made up of a few good friends and a great loving heart and all else will fall into place, if we are blessed with either of the two.
