Love is blind

I had ample opportunity to fall in love, but did not have the guts, thinking if I fall I would get hurt, fatally. Why talk about that now?
Well, romance is an interesting subject. And when it does not concern me, I can be open, right?
This boy was flirting with that girl for three years. Suddenly, I get an
invitation for wedding. Only the name of the girl was different. Both of them were very close to me. The dejected girl has remained single for many years now. She’s so beautiful and humble, like all other friends of mine, especially you. (If you are a “He,” change the adjectives to handsome and humble).
I am sure each one of you has come across cases of people bruised by jilted lovers. Am I against love marriage? No, I am just wondering.
My friend mentioned, with figures, the increasing number of broken marriages. Mind boggling, boss. Of course, there are the successful ones too. We will discuss that later.
BTW, did I tell you about the “sister” trick? Just in a lighter vein. When a new girl entered our office, my colleagues, surprisingly often female colleagues, would prod me, “Is she your sister or exception?” If she’s pretty, she is an exception, if not, she’s my sister. One day, this girl SA (now woman) entered office. I promptly declared her “sister.” All the colleagues giggled and told her, “He is calling you sister.” She blushed and replied innocently, “Hey, I do not like these emotional touches ya.” Later, when she heard the real reason, she chased me up to the door with a “You croooookkkk.”
Conclusion? Nothing. Love is blind. This subject has no answer. You fall in love with someone and marry later, or marry and then fall in love. That’s none of my business. But as you happen to be my best friend, I can tell you: “For one to have peace, there is no alternative to loyalty, transparency and commitment from both parties.”

  7. Yes the behenji concept does work wonders in negating female pompusness.

  8. Ah, this is a subject that has been the source of many sleepless nights for me. I am choosing not to think about it at this time, though I will agree that loyalty, transparency and commitment are the keys to a peaceful life. I hope you are having a wonderful day, Ramesh. Much peace and happiness to you. Namaste

  9. I sincerely believe that the saying 'Its better to have loved and lost...' is utter crap! Heart break is the worst disease one can encounter.

    But when love does bless your life, it adds magic to your life. Love doesn't mean attention being showered on you all the time. The very thought of a special someone to care for and look out for is wonderful.

    Besides love always has its boundaries! And so 'aaj kaal' love is not blind! I atleast hope so! :P

  14. This is an over-hyped subject. Everybody feels to be in love is mandatory, whether before marriage or after marriage. And about relationship, only trust can nourish it.

  15. Marriage is merely a formality sometimes. When 2 people love each other, its the love that stands rather than how many times each has got flowers from the other.

    People don't understand stuff like this these days. They believe more in the movies. They like to act in one too. :)
