How I realized the importance of water?

Just when I was meandering in and out of my house, my mom called out to me and told me there was something wrong with the water pumping motor. I reached out to her as soon as I heard her voice. The thought of an empty tank was constantly bugging her. She added that without water it would not be possible for her and us to do the daily chores. I ran towards my room, which took me a while, to call my electrician. The person who I can rely on with my eyes shut. At times, he is lackadaisical and doesn't respond well. As usual, he told me that he was busy and would not be able to come. I told him that it was urgent and there's nothing we could do without his help. That's when I realized how important an electrician is. I sound like a square peg in a round hole in such situations. Jokes apart, I insisted him to visit us the following day and the call ended on an assuring note from his side. Meanwhile, we had the whole day ahead of us and thoughts of water running dry. I will expl

Love, nowadays - Just a Bodily Attraction

Guy - I think I love you.

Girl - What makes you say so?

Guy - I don’t know. I just think you are very pretty. I got attracted to you the first time I crossed paths with you.

 What does the aforementioned conversation indicate? Most of us will say that the guy loves the girl unconditionally and his love is immaculate. But if you carefully look at the reply of the boy, he deems to love her based on a condition, that is, she is extremely charismatic. Love nowadays is not a complex word/thing - you see a girl or a boy from a distance and you fall in love. But according to me, love is not just a bodily attraction. It’s way way more than that. I won’t join hands with someone who is just physically attractive or dresses nicely. Do you happen to like everybody you meet? No, right. And what forms the basis of your liking? Well, you look for a certain set of qualities in the other person and if you happen to find such a set, you start admiring that person. You make him/her your go-to companion.

 The same is the case with love. According to me, you like or love somebody when he/she completely understands you or who loves you without keeping in mind your bodily features. Just keep your hand close to your heart and answer this question honestly. Would you ever love or get attracted to someone who’s handicapped or a person who is not fair-complexioned? Well, I don’t have the means to collect your answers but in most cases, it’s a NO. I might as well say no if I am asked the same question. One day I was conversing with one of my cousins who had a wrong interpretation of love and upon being asked what love according to him was and what factors did he take into account while choosing his partner, he replied, “I don’t know what it means. I just saw her face and I fell in love with her.” And I knew from that moment that his so-called love was not love but just infatuation. 

 Material wealth is also considered while choosing a partner these days. Would you love somebody who is not affluent or somebody who can’t buy you things? No, right? So love is not what people think it is. It is just a fatal attraction, nothing more nothing less. 

 I would like to drag my friend Manish in here who has a girlfriend. He doesn’t only like her because she is an attractive girl but because she truly understands him. He can put his faith in her and tell her anything he wants - be it a minor problem or a major problem, knowing that she won’t let him suffer for long. Exceptions are there in everything and I believe, Manish is an exception. On the other hand, Manish understands her really well too and dares to accept someone’s frailties with grace. So, she can also trust Manish blindly. 

 Let’s just talk about some marriages that don’t end well. Let’s take a scenario where - you happen to know somebody whom you like very much and you plan on marrying that person. Suppose you get married to the love of your life. Would you ever leave him/her? You will stay with him/her from cradle to grave and through every thick and thin, right? But some people call it off just a few years after their marriage. Is this love? Why did you come along in the first place if you knew you were not compatible with each other? What happened to all those vows and oaths that you took and sworn to during the time of your marriage? So, you see things are not always what they seem. 

 I would like to conclude by saying that if you really love somebody, do it without any condition or things like lust or money and I assure you that things will go as planned.
