I consider February as the month of love… Not just because it has the most universally celebrated day of the year, the Valentine’s Day, but also represents the sacred thread of love which bound two of the purest souls on Earth forever – Yes, its my parents’ Wedding Anniversary! 🙂 Love you, mom and dad 🙂
So, that officially makes February the “Love Month of the year” 🙂
Talking of love, I sometimes wonder if it is indeed the most “loosely” used word in English dictionary… do we really mean it when we use it? Then how do people fall in and out of love with so much ease, as if just changing into a fresh piece of clothing!
And yet, everyone seems to be in constant search for love… even those already married or seeing someone! The quest for that “perfect soul mate” has ruined many a lives in the past and will continue to do so in the future… whatever happened to the concept of “Eternal love”? People use the word “love” to depict their ulterior motives… They often confuse love with lust, obssession and what not! Are we running behind an illusion, which is anything but love?
While designing the theme page for the blog, I cudnt help but wonder… Love has never been more celebrated than today’s times… We have days to celebrate our love with that special someone! Innumerable number of ways in which love can be expressed… u have e-cards, letters, e-mails… Communication media is at its all time best! Facebook, orkut, u name it… And yet, love of the yesteryears survived the toughest of the hardships and was truly eternal… It was never important to say it out loud then… it was felt in the eyes!! There was a romantic subtlety about it… which made it sooo pristine and pure… much unlike today, when one seems more engrossed in finding the best of the lot… and the search never ends… coz the moment u have found someone, there will always be someone better waiting around…!! I am not sure if you guys did notice this… whenever there is a break-up, the one breaking up always has someone better in their mind already! The entire phenomenon has been sadly reduced to a strategy game of sorts!
And yet, there are some others who deeply and truly understand what love is…
Let us just hope that with all our fancy dos and amidst all the dhinchak means, we are able to celebrate love in its purest and most unadulterated form! 🙂
