First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

This is my first writing for the blog readers. Hope you will enjoy reading my thoughts and spread my words more through your choice.

I was wondering what to write and how to start when I remember one of the incidences to share. Leaving in your hands to decide whether it is love or satire in the name of love.

I am not giving names to the characters.

After a decade when she saw him on the social networking site, she couldn’t hold her feelings than to contact him. She managed to get his contact number and decided to call him. He was too happy as he still loves her. Hearing her voice after 10 long years brought goosebumps on his skin. She said that she is feeling guilty that 10 years back she left him without any explanation to marry another guy. So to get out of her guilt she called him to say sorry.

Soon from that one call, she continued to keep a secret affair with her past while at the same time celebrated her 10th marriage anniversary.

Moonshine

As she closes her eyes comes the white light,
Takes her to hundreds of miles,
Where lives the moons and stars of her life.

She walks into the timeless space,
Music of love and life there plays,

And, everything she has ever wanted.

She started to dance in her golden gown,
Wearing her graceful queen crown,

In the soothing moonshine, holding her man’s arms.

Trickles then, the beam of sunlight,
Made her open the beautiful eyes,
She smiles and welcomes the morning mist.

Friends

“The one who has a good friend doesn’t need any mirror ” by Rumi

A few weeks back while looking for an article I got a photo album of my school trip to Digha (a beach in India). While looking through the pictures I remembered not only my school friends but also those friends who came into my life at some point in my life and left their footprints.

So this odyssey of my life was made with those few who had either made it easier or more dramatic in its rhythm. In this whole span of life from school days to university I have been part of the group of pals who were distinctively different from each other in their nature. Most of them were like winds who came with a soothing feeling but left before one could realise their presence. There were some who were like snows, they looked beautiful but were too cold to stay for a longer time.

While there were few who were like drops of rain who will prevent you to step outside and would always demand to cherish them only. But the real friends were those who were like scorching sunlight, who will bother you with their heat but would always show you the right path by showering their light on you and would never leave you in darkness. Lucky are those who have got even one such friend like the sun.

Expectation

“No expectations, No disappointments”

Often we do come across this quotation in our daily life and more or less we do agree with it at some point in our life.

Most of the times, it is said that we should not keep any expectations from the person we love. Love if pure has no expectation. But is it always so?

I do not think so. The expectation in a relationship is a must. Without expectations, a relationship would become static rather than dynamic. The expectation is nothing but a silver lining of hope.
It is mostly believed that we expect from whom we love, but in reality, deep down in our unconscious minds, we expect from a few whom we think loves us as well.

Don’t we expect from the Almighty that at the end of every crisis or struggle in life He would do everything best for us? I think such expectation from the Almighty gives hope for better days in times of hardship. I think realistic expectations won’t bring disappointment, whereas unrealistic expectations might.

Yes, it is true that expectations are mostly asked of others and that is where the chances of its failure remain. What we need to learn is to know the difference between a realistic and an unrealistic desire, rather than preventing ourselves from keeping expectations in a relationship. I also believe that, if we totally stop expecting from our loved ones in a relationship then all the ingredients of love, trust and hope would melt away in time.

Unbreakable

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul, there is no separation “. By Rumi

Sometimes we get engrossed with our own problems so much that in order to deal with our stressful situation, unknowingly we give too much pain to our near ones. One fails to realise that the person involved in a relationship with him or her, is more affected by his or her behaviour and mood swings. They might be trying their hard to give as much support as possible but the other partner in stress might not realise that he or she too has his or her personal life and might have their own problems as well. In such hard times, one might think of breaking the relationship and walk out from that relationship which they might have cherished together for several years. It is not that their love dies in such stressful situations rather it is their mental energy that lower down to that level from where they stop trying to put rest of their mental space to continue the relationship. They just want to vacate it as it becomes suffocating to live with it anymore.
But is that the end of any relationship that remained strong for so many years?
I think it is sometimes just an official end of the relationship, though an invisible string of love or hate keeps them attached for a lifetime in their unconscious mind which might get reflected in another demanding situation. While in some cases it might be the end of the relationship without any strings of love or hate but would always remain in their minds as a string of tangled memories.

Perfection in imperfection

Love is regarded as the purest and sacred aspect of our life. Being in love and being loved by someone has equal importance to living a normal healthy life. Love comes with different names like our parents, siblings, spouse, best friends and of course as boyfriend and girlfriend. So, at a time we can be in love with so many people.

But is it possible to be romantically in love with two person at a time?

I think the majority of you are going to say ‘No’. While few might say ‘Yes’. I was wondering about it for a long period of time and many a time it does happen we feel we are romantically in love with more than one person, which I think is very normal. If we keep the morality part aside then it has no problem. But since we live in a civilized world and consider ourselves as the epitome of the animal kingdom, we are expected to behave accordingly that is to have moral ethics in our lifestyle and behaviour. To be loyal to one partner and even thoughts of being attracted to someone else is considered as unfaithful.

Is romantically in love with someone always means to be physically attracted?

I think it is not always so. One might be just mentally attracted to someone, which might involve the essence of romanticism. But such type of love is only confined to exchange of thoughts which might be very similar to one another. Sometimes we just feel good to talk to someone. It has no relationship with the romantic involvement of lovemaking.

We might not get a partner who would have everything which we would consider as perfect for our life. So, we do get attracted to other people at the same time. But mere attraction is nothing harmful. One just needs to know where to draw a line. As there won’t be anyone who would fit the category of being called as perfect according to our wish and the cycle of being attracted to someone would keep repeating itself.

Torment

Her thoughts come and go,

Her words still echo,

Her memories remain alive,

Which triggers the pain all the time,

 

He wishes to sleep all night

But her image comes in front of his eyes

Which keeps him awake whole night.

 

He dreams beautiful life in the silence of the night with his open eyes,

Where he spends the best moments of his life.

As the morning breaks the quietness of the night

He realises the reality of life.

 

He ends the long teary night with a weary mind

But begins the morning with smiley eyes.

Throbbing

“Relationships are more important than life, but it is important for those relationships to have life in them.” – Swami Vivekananda.

Sometimes it is difficult to express your emotion without tears while sometimes one can cry inside without shedding a drop. It depends on person to person and sometimes on their experiences from life. It is really painful when the person for whom you are fighting day and night blames you and find faults in you for small things. One might think his or her contribution in the name of sacrifice for the relationship is much more than the opposite partner thereby bringing ego for every little thing. Yes, it might be true that you are doing a bit more than your partner but did you ever take time to think his or her role in it.

Maybe you cannot see that because your ego comes before your thoughts. Even if you know and wants to accept his or her contribution your ego would stop you from doing so. One cannot live his or her life when one of the partners showing doubts on the other partner whom he or she is claiming to be in love with all the good times. Love is not about being together all your life, rather it is about being happy to be with each other.

“I Love You” is easy to spell out and pronounce hundred times a day. But the difficulty is holding the true essence of its meaning in your life and relationship.
