Love and War

“Everything is fair in love and war”

We do know this phrase for ages. But is it really so? Do love and war go together? Love is all about creation, while war is all about destruction. Love is alacrity, while war is apathy. Love is music while war is cacophony.
History has shown us, wars are fought in the name of love, but, after the gory battle,is it possible to hold that love?
Love is beautiful but can it be beautiful when painted in pool of bloodstream?

Is everything is really fair in love? No I don’t think so. We cannot do anything and everything  in love or for love. But, we can try to do so.We can only try our best to nurture the love. Neither we can beg nor we can fight for love.

Love is a blessing which can be felt but not touched, which can be experienced but cannot be forced upon others.

It just happens. If it is meant to be, it will survive and if not it will vanish before one can realize.

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.

“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.

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.

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.
