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.

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.

“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.

Silence in Love

He does receive the call but would never utter a word,
She would still call him but would never say a word.

The call cannot reduce the distance between their hearts,
Yet she thinks it can bridge the maximum gap.

Yes, he does know it’s none other than her,
Even though she is using a new phone number.

Every week she calls him with the same unknown number,
He would receive the call without many wonders.

The duration of their silence varies day to day,
Sometimes it is for a minute and sometimes for a few seconds.

She hopes a day will come when he would say a word
That would break the silence of love for the lifetime.

Once upon a time

Short stories 4

It was a usual day when Riya was coming back to her home from the office. She was waiting in the bus stand to get the bus. She saw that a girl came in a hassle and stood just behind her. Soon a queue was formed. The girl was on her phone busy speaking to someone. Riya was listening to her conversation as there was no better option for her. Unlike most office goers she avoids listening to music on her journey from home to office and visa vis.

That girl was speaking to her mother and from the conversation, Riya came to know that she is about to get married next week and therefore was asking her mother to come to a popular shopping mall and was, therefore, telling her to make a list of things to buy. She was speaking to her mom that she wants to buy a watch for Rohit. After hearing few more conversation Riya now knew Rohit is the groom. Riya actually wants to turn around to see the face of the girl properly whose conversation she was eavesdropping for almost half an hour. Though the voice seemed known to her from the very beginning.

The queue started to move and everyone started to enter the bus to take up their seats as available. The girl sat just beside Riya. Riya now looked at her properly and remembered she is none other than the girl she used to hate a lot. She was Natasha who was the reason behind Riya’s breakup with her boyfriend in college days. It has been seven years since then. Perhaps Natasha too recognized her as she quickly lowered her head to avoid further eye contact.

Since Riya was sitting beside the window seat she too turned her face towards the window views.

Natasha hanged her phone. It was an awkward moment of silence. Natasha and Riya used to share a good friendship before that incidence.

The guy who ditched Riya after 5 years of relationship for Natasha also ditched Natasha for some another girl within a year of their relationship. Riya came to know about this from some of their common friends but got confirmed unknowingly by hearing her conversation that day.

Riya somehow didn’t feel anything neither happy nor sad as she perhaps always knew this was going to happen.

After four stops Riya got up to reach the bus door to get down. As the bus stopped and the gate opened Riya looked towards Natasha, she was too staring at her and then the seven years long silence broke with an exchange of a smile.

Forgiven but not forgotten

“Everything is ended if you forgive and forget” by Swami Vivekananda

Yes, I too believe in this words of Swamiji. Sometimes we think we cannot forgive the person for his or her deeds, particularly if that person played with our emotion. In a relationship when one of the partners lies and cheats, it becomes difficult to forgive and forget the opposite person who has unconditionally given love, affection and trust to built up that relationship. A relationship is like a child which we nurture with love and affection and continues growing it throughout our life. Cheating, lies, backstabbing can break the continuity of such growth in any relationship.

But don’t you think after a certain period of time one actually starts forgiving the person, maybe it can take a year or couple of years to do so. Even sometimes we give another chance to that relationship to grow.

Do you know why?

Because our love never dies with one incidence. It still remains inside us like a seed. Once the harsh reality of a drought in place gets accepted by the person he or she starts searching for the water in the name of best and wonderful memories we had spent with that person. And slowly it reduces our pain and we start to forgive him or her and even give another chance to grow that seed into a tree of love. Yes, it definitely takes time and patience.
However, at the same time how much we say we have forgotten the pain, it always remains inside as it was given by the person whom we have trusted the most. As I believe love can remain for aeons but once trust is broken it naturally remains there even if it looks just like a scratch.

They don’t talk to each other,
They don’t meet each other,
They hardly know what’s going on in their life,
Still, there is something left between them,
How much she misses her only her heart knows
How much she cares for him only her mind knows
How much she wonders for his wellbeing only does God knows,
Still, there is something left between them,
Every day she wonders whether he ever thinks of her?
Every day she wonders whether he will ever call her back?
Every day she wonders whether he will recognise her if sees her again?
Still, there is something left between them
Days, months and years passed but she still thinks there is something left between them.
