Gone are the days when people were spending their whole life with a single life partner. In those times, love was FOREVER. Even today also, it is indeed forever but the lover gets changed! So, the love doesn’t die, it just get shifts to a new destination to spread its colors on.
With the pace at which people are changing their prospected life partners or official life partners, it has become tough to find a couple in true love.
I have been fortunate enough to have seen such a couple in my life.
No… I am not going to mention about my parents here!
Rather, there is one more couple whose love story deserves to be told here.
One of the many good things of today’s social sites is the soil and environment they provide to rope the new love seeds. Few years back, at such a site, a love story began, nurtured and wrote it’s own destiny.
The hero of this story was one of my good friends of that time and the girl in question was a stranger who entered as a breeze of fresh and approachable air to him.
With the passage of time, they found their deep interest in each other. The boy was eager to confess his love to the girl but was afraid to do so. Though they were in touch days and nights, sharing their precious moments over online chat and phone calls but there was a secret of the boy which was not known to the girl.
The boy was suffering from a disease named Polio in one of his legs due to which he was unable to walk properly.
I, along with the rest of his friends, were quite sure that the girl will back off whenever she will come to know about the truth. Getting married to such a person who is also from a different caste needs lots of guts and passionate love (yes, in India, we still deal with religion, caste and color).
We tried our best to let our friend convince that the end of the story will be sad for him as he will be the one who will get hurt most. But all useless. After all, it was LOVE, which not only makes people blind but it also makes them deaf at times (as our friends stop listening to us!).
One day, our friend decided to meet that girl. The girl got agreed having an inner belief that they can count on one another. The meeting got fixed & on some random day, they both met.
Against all our expectations and sure conclusions, the girl was not broken by seeing the reality. She was surprised, probably shocked as well but still very much in love with our friend. After meeting couple of times they decided to marry each other.
The girl’s decision made us all owe to her a lot. She not only proved us wrong but showed us the real meaning of true love. She taught us how to love. But we humans are so selfish and doubtful that we still kept on doubting whether they will actually get marry or not.
For the obvious reasons, the girl`s family was against this proposed relationship so as our friend’s family. The love birds tried their levels best to convince them. But neither of the family got agreed.
At last, they both decided to get married in a judicial court. Without informing their families, they went ahead and tied the knot.
That day, we realized when a girl says yes, it does mean yes!
By having each other’s support, they were ready to face the volcanoes of their lives now. So, they informed their families on the same day. Both families were shocked, unable to understand what was the lacking in their upbringing (Any children, in India, if ever, does something wrong or against the parents expectations, the Indian parents raise the question mark on their own upbringing!)
By seeing the children going happy go lucky with each other & supporting each other in every ups and downs of life, both the families soon realized that they were wrong; uselessly trying to enforce their own wishes and expectations on their children.
Today, against all speculations and odds, the love birds are living happily in their nest along with their babies.
