We think we all know about ‘Love’, the all consuming feeling that enthralls you. We carry it around thinking about it time and time again and yet we face a hollowness of sorts. Why so? We have ended up putting so many restrictions that we now have a nominated day of love i.e 14th of February. But, is this the right way to go?
The instances area plenty, we only need to open our eyes and see the magic unfolding in front of us. The mother’s warmth when she holds her child, a tight hug from a long lost friend, the smitten lovers holding hands, you name it and it’s there. It is this tingling sensation that we need to hold on to and celebrate.
Movies like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ have set a benchmark in terms of capturing the imagination of the young and old. But, it is the underlying message of love and eternal bliss that we often miss out on. It is precisely what the world needs and celebration of love is the remedy.
But, it’s not all about roses and rainbows. Even science has its take on the feeling of love. The important point being love induces certain happy hormones that keep you in a state of great mental and physical health. All the more reason, to spread the message across on a daily basis.
While there can be a laundry list of reasons that can be given to indulge in this sensation, King Khan sums it up brilliantly in one of his dialogues in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, “Hum ek baar jeete hai. Ek baar marte hai. Aur pyar bhi ek hi baar hota hai.” So, do away with the constraints because for love, one day is simply not enough.
