Love.! Was it.?

Love.! Was it.?For we will be.

Love to me, is the feeling that attaches you to things. The feeling of oneness with that object. What happens when such attachments are ultimately taken for a ride.?

The rider takes control of the situation till his purpose  is served. More like a dummy being made subject to all tests but somehow does not up end up in the markets. There will be many and many who’ve been taken for a ride. First it it is the promise, then is it the actions which will make the ridden get more and more attached to the rider unknowingly. Every ride takes its toll and rider will not give a damn as it serves his purpose. But here, the ridden is so much attached to the rider that the moment the ride stops he starts crumbling from the inside because he was so attached to the rider and considered him as one with the rider.
So similarly love is one such attachment that can be taken for longest ride. In today’s society or the fast moving consumeristic world, attachments mean little when it comes to long term relationships. People mistake attraction for attachments. For ones who were truly attached with each other no difficult times can break the attachment. However for those who call themselves attached wherein they were just attracted to each other for various reasons, such attachments are often called off or in cooler terms “ taking a break” whenever either of senses a diminished attraction towards the other for various reasons. Does love really wear off overtime, or is it just a screenplay to fit into the dynamics of cool society.?
I’ve seen people be in love even though they might end up arguing over petty issues, but always somehow the feel of oneness keeps them together, knowing that they cannot do it without each other.
How does the concept of taking a break work.? Is being attached, like an addiction that needs to be taken care so that it does not ruin your health or is it just there was no love or commitment towards being one at all.? Just that because it looked cool or they were under influence of raging hormones that they got attracted.? When one becomes one with another everything else becomes irrelevant. They would know each other inside out. All of a sudden things will not become “ its not working out, we need a break”. Attraction wears off overtime, attachments do not.
Attractions are temporary and will not leave any evident mark. However when things become attached and one decides to call it off, such breaks tend to leave very disturbing scars. These scars are often irreparable and end up creating a nuisance down the line. Scars can always be polished however they are temporary as such scars are deeply embedded and until and unless there is another attachment such scars cannot be covered completely.

Is it really worth scarring or do you enjoy looking at the scar.?

Fuck it,  nothing above made sense. Nothing above was meant to be. Never mind, it was just an expression.

Smitten by the Ajanta of the Himalayas- Tabo

This is nice

The Lost Lander

So, have you read the story from my previous stop? (Click here to read) If yes, then this post is starting from Hurling, where I had alighted last. It was cold and I was the only non-localite at a small dhaba from where I was hoping to get a ride uphill to Tabo. The person making parathas at the dhaba instantly recognized me telling he had seen me at the wedding last evening. Although I found it very sweet of him, I felt embarrassed about not recognizing him and apologized to him telling that everyone looked same to me with their caps and mufflers. Not only did he refuse to take money from me for the cup of chai I had there, he ensured he got me a ride in the car of a fellow customer at his dhaba. This drive is indeed close to my heart, even today… So…

Natural wonders of South India – My favourites

The Lost Lander

India has intrigued the world with its history, geography and culture- each individually dating back to several ages ago. I have been no different from the rest of the world. The LostLander has begun to embrace her landings after getting lost at random places in her incredible country. The more she is exploring her country, the more she has been discovering about its descendance and getting mind blown with new discoveries each time. Author Sanjeev Sanyal writes, “The history of India’s physical geography is older than that of its civilization or even that of the human race. The subcontinent has been a distinct geological entity for millions of years. Therefore, to understand India, we must go back to the very beginning.”

The fact that it is called as a subcontinent is associated to a larger theory of it being separated out of a supercontinent called ‘Rodinia’ and drifting apart from…

The land of the singing waves – Tranquebar

The Lost Lander

East coast road: Destination no.3 for the day.

We alighted the bus at a small junction which seemed like any other fishing hamlet. The bus conductor pointed to a small road to the right and guided us telling “one kilometer ahead is the fort”, and blew the whistle indicating the driver to proceed. My parents looked at my face blinking and I could sense that ‘Where are you taking us?’ question in their eyes.

We walked about half a kilometer and an old arch with finely done Danish art welcomed us to- The land of the singing waves- Tranquebar, the Danish port town also called as Tharangambadi in Tamil.

The entrance arch The arch at the entrance of Tarangambadi/Tranquebar

Super empty & super clean roads lined by old Danish buildings on either sides made us feel like we were walking in a different country..The Zion church, the Teresa’s convent school, the Danish governor’s…
