POOF!! i was tired of running here and there, reading eric segals - love story, watching SRK starrer...super-duper hits, reading legendery romeo and juliet, etc..etc..etc!!but still i found myself at the same place with the same question :where is love? where can i find it?? how am i supposed to know that who is my "prince perfect"..?? like my favorite fairy tales will i also find him in some old pond...cursed to be an ugly frog...just waiting to turn into a handsome prince when i kiss him?? (eeeeuuuu.....but i dont like frogs, can he not be cursed to turn into something better than a frog and also easy to kiss!!i wonder!!)
with all these bullets firing in my mind...i happened to attend a family wedding...(i just love our indian weddings) with good amount of work, good food, good clothes, good 'not-to-sleep' nights and yes! a good number of relatives, from all across the globe!! but this did not bother my search..running for the answer i did finally land-up into the end of my search...seeing the beautiful couple..i felt love all around me...filled through my core..rushed through my eyes and landed up as a tear on my right 'zygomatic arch'...(arrr...thats bio...i should mention here that it takes a lot of sessions to know that...)..
no um not talking about the bride and the groom...instead um talking about one of my grandma..and grandpa!! (um sure u dont wanna know the whole across the pedigree relation!!)my grandma..who took her last breath an year before had been bed stuck because of the dreaded palsy since last two decades (20yrz!!) and my grand-pa..keeping his own medical records aside..did all possible things for her...from waking her giving her bed tea...(with spoon) her face...polishing her shoes...painting her nails..searching for her pins...pinning up her hair into a bun...taking out that little flick!! (gran-pa told me that she loved it..and also that this was the first thing he had noticed in cute!! )

something pulled me down to the ground...where i sat watching both of them sharing their beaautiful 'WORD-LESS BONHOMIE'...!! i actualised that it is all a big circle..i was running after love...while love ran after me..!! (and thence, with a little combination of geometry and physics, you can understand that this is why i neva found love!! )...

the love that i was searching all over was no where but around me...inside i found is 'silent air' comes inside even if all the doors and windows are closed!! this realisation of love also enriched me with the sound-less lyrics of care...which has no rules..jus two people trussed together with trust and forbearance.....

so well!! for all those iso-aged champs who are on my pug-marks of finding love in their life..."guys , remember about that circle? what all u need to do is stand at your place and wait!!and trust me, this itself will bump into you!!" and for those who have learnt something from this write up...get is the love season....and love is in the air!!

thanks for reading my mind...
luv :nickku
