Name a single person who hasn’t cried while watching Toy Story 3. The emotional farewell between Andy and his toys was the breaking point for everyone. Each one of us grew up watching the toys lying around, playing in Andy’s room, and now all of a sudden, all of it just ends. The story starts with Andy preparing to leave for his college, but like most of the college-going boys, Andy won’t be taking the toys with him. But science woody, the sheriff he decides to take him and leave the rest of the boys packed in a big attic.

A few misconceptions and incidents later, we find the toys donated to Sunnyside, a daycare. A few moments later, we find Woody convincing Andy to give the toys to Bonnie(grabs a tissue) and Andy bringing the box of toys to Andy.

Another beautiful movie that can make even the most mature men cry is Bambi. The movie revolves around a young deer named Bambi living in the forest with his family and exploring his home. While growing up, Bambi becomes friends with other animals, Thumper the rabbit and a tiny skunk named Flower. The three grow up together and are often seeing going on adventures in the forest. While in doing so, young Bambi learns that the forest is full of dangers, and hunters, from his loving mother and father, The Great Prince of the Forest.

As Bambi grows up, he realizes that growing up is not only about the joys and the beauty that surrounds his life but also the sorrows and tragedy that is there. The ending where Bambi’s mother gets killed by the hunters is where I had an emotional breakdown and started crying like a three-year-old.

For me, writing is something that helps me escape from reality for a while. Even though I am an Engineer, I find my comfort from chaos while I write. I love telling people about my stories, stories that play in my mind only. When I am writing, there is no limit to how far I can go swimming in this deep ocean of words. Reading and writing are the two things that help in organizing my messed up thoughts in a formative way. Come along on this journey with me as I write and you read the stories that I have to tell!
