Love.. An Untangled Affair


Sometimes I wonder what is it that makes a person cross the boundaries in the name of love, without even realizing what they're doing? 

Sure they say, all is fair in love and war. It makes a teenager run miles in the sun just to get the glimpse of their beloved, it makes a man come home early to have dinner with his wife, it makes woman spread and shower endless love on her boyfriend by understanding and always ready to make him smile and smile along with him, it makes a woman fight the world for the sake of her man, it makes the man feel happy simply by having his woman by his side forever! 

Amidst all these feelings and emotions, who defines what is right and what is wrong? When people love someone truly, they do things they never thought were capable of doing. Younger ones lies to their parents for their lovers, to buy gifts, to top up their phone recharge, to travel and visit them if at all in long distance, of course this happens when they're not earning. But what about the ones who're earning? Don't they lie for the sake of love? Of course they do! A man truly in love with a girl makes thousands of efforts to spend time with his married girlfriend. And the woman, decides to stay married but couldn't resist the idea of staying in touch with her ex. Is this wrong? Yes, we do term it wrong! 

But whose fault is it? The ex, who just loved and only loved and couldn't marry her then coz he wasn't financially sound? Or the girl who tried her best to stay loyal to her marriage but eventually turns to her old first love coz her husband wouldn't just give in, or the husband, who thought his responsibility was to make good love in the night and give good money in the day to spend. What about romance? What about passion? What about spark? Does marriage kills it all? Is this what the reality check is all about? 

An urge to hear a simple romantic line in the middle of the night from your husband is too much to ask? Expecting a compliment from your wife coz you wore a new shirt isn't too much, but it sure loses it's charm coz the couple stays together and has got past of it all. Had it been the courtship or had he been her boyfriend, wouldn't he say a thousand romantic lines waking up all night? And wouldn't she randomly throw umpteen compliments and pull his leg all the while? But suddenly it becomes a pain, why? 

What is right and what is wrong, who is the one who decides it? People define labels as per their convenience, as per their comfort levels and as per them lying in those labels.

Has love become a mirage of what it used to be?

In a world, where everything is a sham, why not just put yourself out there and accept the love you're getting from whichever source, as long as it makes you happy! 

Not everybody thinks the way this article does, but that's not a problem right? What's your take on love? Or right or wrong? Put it all here and I'd be more than happy to hear them all... 

Cheers

Z- Zealous


‘What theme should I choose? Please help. I have no clue!’

I said those lines to almost everyone I met! Narrating the A-to-Z-Challenge, seeking inputs, brain-storming and rejecting every idea they gave me. Of course, that was coupled with some stern remarks about my eccentricity of this whole thing.

A few scheduled posts were a relief, but not for long!

I wanted to quit. Reading, writing, commenting apart from work, was too much to handle.

But a voice inside kept yelling, you can do it! Finish it off and I’ll pat your back later!

And today I couldn’t be any happier!

Y- Youthful


At an event crowded with women, a young lass caught my attention. Tall, slender, short hair. She was wearing a grey knee length pencil fit skirt, flaunting her curves, teamed with a black blouse and a pair of black stilettos.

Her age nothing beyond 25, thought other women and found her right for their brats, the men there... had ideas of proposing her.

And there she was, walking on the dice with the perfect gait.


In no time, while sharing her struggles about being a woman, she declared her details. 40 and a mother of twins... well, the rest wasn’t needed!!

X- Xenophobic


‘Meet Uncle Josh, he’s from Australia’

‘Where’s Australia?’

‘You want to go there? It has candies. You like them?’

Sanya was 5, when she first met a foreigner.

‘Mommy, can I go with Uncle... Pleeeezzz..!!’

‘Sure you can go, grow up and study there.’

‘Really? Thank you mommy!’

When Ajay was 18, his parents wanted him to apply for foreign universities. But he was reluctant. He didn’t want to go at all. He didn’t want to go anyplace concerned with foreigners.

Even if he thought of going, memories of Uncle Josh made him numb! Nasty memories that his uncle gave him!

W- Worthy


‘1 year and we haven’t met. Please do something about it’, flustered Sia.

‘I miss you too! But we both have work!’ stated Raj.

Few more arguments led Sia sleep with the thought, is it coming to an end? Or has he met someone there?

Bright sunny morning, with the sunshine ready to kiss Sia.

'Surprise!!!!!!'

He stood there, with a bunch of flowers and a radiant smile!

She twitched her eyes to come to reality,

‘But how?.. when...? and flights... they must be so expensive?.. And your work?’

‘Sshhh... You’re worth it! This smile is worth it.’

And they sealed their lips.

V- Vain


7 years of Shweta’s marriage and she still missed her ex. She tried hard. Initially, the wedding fever kept her away from the affair, but lack of intimacy and communication, spark and the will to be together in her marriage was a distant dream.

On one end, she longed for her husband’s love and attention made countless efforts to be with him, keep the passion intact and surprised him quite often.

In contrary, she had her lover, who waited and craved for her attention.

She saw her efforts going in vain and finally succumbed to a relationship where she felt wanted!

U- Unappreciated


‘Daughter-in-laws these days, I tell you! It's 9 months of my son’s wedding and now we’re filing for divorce’

Seriously?’

'Yes! She’s pregnant and now wants money. She doesn’t want to stay in the house with us! Or me particularly. What the hell does she think of herself?’

While the truth was, the woman her son married loved her unconditionally. She was the top most gynaecologists. Begging for food, being tortured, physical abuses and a treatment worse than a maid made her leave the house.

Now, she’s supporting her family with the income she earns and she couldn’t be any happier.
