True Love ! How do i even begin ?
Something which is losing its value and meaning day by day. Some fight with the world to prove the tensile strength of the bond whereas some fight with their own egos to keep the bond strong. Love is very easy to show, very difficult to maintain.
Love today comes with modern dreams. It comes with conditions. It comes with selfishness. Only if you keep me happy i will love you, only if you earn 1 lakhs per month will i love you, only if you take care of my parents will i love you. Only if you give me sexual pleasure will i love you. Love is getting cheaper day by day and losing its value, hence i had to quote “True Love”. So what is this true love ?
There is a very beautiful illustration of “True Love”. It goes like follows
There was a guy in Mumbai and a girl in Goa. They never knew each other. One day they randomly met in a social networking site and became friends. Every day 6:00 PM the guy logged into his computer and started waiting for her and when he saw green dot on her name his heart skipped a beat. Then they chatted until it was 9:00 PM, when she had to leave for dinner and studies. This continued for a few months and she shared her number with him. Then came the night before the day when He was about to hear her voice for the first time ever. That night He slept at 4:00 and kept looking at the clock every 10 mins as he couldn’t keep his excitement. Finally next day He woke up and got ready to leave for college. She had asked him to call her at 1:00 PM afternoon. He wished her Good morning on SMS and his hands were sweaty and vibrating out of excitement. Then at 12:45 He reached home went down behind his building he was crying out of excitement. 1:00 PM he was shivering and He called her. The phone rang for a few extra seconds and then it was picked up at the other end. there was a brief silence and He decided to say Hello first and he said “Hello ?”…. there came a reply “Hello “…. that was the sweetest thing that ever hit his eardrums in 18 years of his life, He simply forgot his existence and was carried away into the aura of happiness. They spoke to each other for hours. The carried on for a year. One day it was 7:00 PM she was washing clothes in her hostel in Goa and he just came home from his extra classes in Mumbai. Don’t really know what happened to him that day, He called her and told her “I Love You”……. There was a brief silence and she was speechless. There were days when He had fasted for her good results. There were days when He did not even celebrate his academic excellencies, as she wasn’t doing good. Every year, He patiently waited for July when He could finally see her face to face. They only met once or twice in a year. Everything was going good until his sister got married and left home. He was very close to his sister and discussed and sought all kind of advices from her. Now that his sister left, His love was the only one with whom He could be open. He started getting more possessive as he was not willing to lose His girl at any cost. But then destiny played its part and she left him when he was in the middle of unemployment, cash crunch and deprived of love. 12 years later a drop of tear falls of as he narrates this, the whole flashback plays like a powerpoint presentation in front of his eyes. He still misses her and wishes her all the happiness in life.
That’s true love.
A selfless, soul touching feeling of well being for someone who left you half way in the journey of lifetime, that is true love.
