Life lessons from the movie "Lunchbox" | The Project Quote

• Don't cut vegetables on office files as your boss can freak out if the files smell of vegetables

• “Sometimes the wrong train can take us to the right station”.

• Don't be too rude to anyone. Be polite.

You don't know what another person is going through. Irrfan was ignoring Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the movie earlier but after knowing that Shaikh i.e. Nawazuddin is an orphan, Irrfan's behavior changed towards him and they both started interacting with each other.

• The way to husband's heart is not only good food. In today's world, personality and compatibility matter a lot.

• You can dream anytime. All you need is the courage to take that first step towards your dream.

• Always believe in yourself. You may not be appreciated by the first person but may be appreciated by another person. Like, from the movie, Ila's husband never appreciated her at home after having dinner made by Ila whereas Saajan Fernandez i.e. Irrfan loved the food cooked by her.

• Two lonely people can be good friends. Whenever we are lonely, we feel so depressed that even a little nice behavior by someone can cheer us up. All we need is to find the right company in life.

• “Uchhi manzilo se kudne ke liye bhi himmat chahiye”. No matter how bad things are. Don't ever think about suicide. Just find your dream and work towards achieving it.
