Loouuuu is in the air! Isn’t it?
Last week you probably celebrated Valentine’s Week. Either by laughing at ‘foolishly in love’ people (because you are jealously or happily single) or by actually being ‘foolish in love’. Let me tell you what I did.
This Valentine week, I ran this happy campaign about ‘Love, Sex & Relationships’ on my social media. I have canned that as a little presentation for you:
Above are the secrets of complicated relationships. It talks about how we complicate them. It also has my thoughts on how to simplify them. These tips to improve relationships have been accumulated over the years with experience. By experience I mean – a few bad break ups that I myself had. And further interaction with lakhs of youngsters like you.
Movies have created this artifice that every person is in a relationship. And you are so unfashionable if you are not into one. But boring, complicated & dramatic relationships are a harsh reality of today’s times. Not the Bollywood- Hollywood type mushy romantic love stories. At least, majority of the emails / FB messages that I receive say so. The infant mortality rate of love stories seems to be greater than even corruption these days.
Accept it. At one point or other, we all need to be in a romantic relationship. So, why not create better relationships!
Love as an emotion is meant to inspire, to help you become better, happier. However, if the relationship itself begins on an FMCG mode then emotional shit is bound to happen. If it is not inspiring you to be better, it is just fatal attraction. Not love. Never love.
This then leads to you getting mired in an ‘Udaasi / Boredom’ of an indescribable kind.
An old hindi song beautifully says:
Wo Afsaana jise anjaam taq laana naa ho mumkin;
Usay aek khoobsurat mod dekar chodna achaa
Keep Rising & Shining always,
