What is Love ?
Well to set the record straight for those who don't know its an amazing Song by Haddaway.Go buffer it while you still read this post.
So a couple of days back was having a Healthy conversation with a few friends where by healthy I meant was : if roadside pani puri ( made with hands that have traveled into regions and clefts under humid weather conditions) is better or the ones at wedding where a gloved guy with a shower cap who looks similar to the guy who gave your granddad a colonoscopy last year serves them to you.I personally prefer the former.So after a lot of arguing about whats better someone said " doesn't Matter who ..... I just LOVE panipuri !! " This marked the onset of a series of questions dished out to one another about LOVE.
My friend Rachita ( mandatory name change to protect her identity ) asked me
What is Love ? How do you know its Love ? When do you know its Love ?
Well just like Munaf Patel's line and length during bowling Love has no fixed definition nor does it have boundaries just like Charlie Sheen's preference when it comes to women or the amount of Coke to snort on a single night.Its different for different people like for. . . my Gujju friend who said It felt love when I shared a kiss with him last night that was " soft gentle yet powerful and had a little bit of tongue in it " I personally thought if it had everything it was the Long Island Iced Tea of Kisses.
Well its not like a pregnancy test where a color change determines if its true or not so I personally feel you can never know if its Love or Not love or if it brings Happiness or Sadness or Joy or Pain . . . Pain just like the colicky pain induced by the Schezwan noodles you had last night cooked in adulterated oil.
Does Love Last forever ?
Well if you go to an Archie's gallery and buy their cards,a lot of them do say some love stories last forever but if you are from say Mumbai then some love stories ONLY last till the cops come and beat the shit out of you at Bandstand.Jokes apart I am only gonna love some woman Unconditionally forever if she agrees to my *Conditions Apply clause related to shopping.
She goes on to ask ....
Is Love " Fueled " (checked spelling thrice before getting the right one ) by hormones ?
Sure why not If its in the backseat of a car its surely driven by hormones and there is a hefty Price tag attached to it too
Well hormones may act as a trigger in a lot of cases like for .eg the ' Shallow ' men who Love women by the ' Depth ' of their cleavage and I wonder that,when these men ASK HER OUT what makes them think she will LET THEM IN.
Any Sacrifices we make . . . . ?
" A man is known by the Shoes she wears " - ( we know who ) So if your relation is at its peak during that critical period of January before Valentines day then yes we do .
The closer and closer you get to Valentine's day the further you are Away from your Target Savings.Valentines day is like Holi or Lohri,it marks the harvest season for all the soft toys Archie's produced throughout the year and one fine day we end up dumping on to each other as a token of Love.If you truly love someone celebrating Valentine's day as a justification of love is a breach of trust I say. . .but then what I say doesn't matter.
Out of the blue comes Garima ( again name changed to protect her identity ) and asks ...
Can you Imagine cockroaches in Love ??
Well I don have an answer to that but I can tell you She was a one time Engineer and by the looks of the question its evident that she was smoking some good stuff in a Hot-Box environment.
And then . . . . Can we love more than one person at a time ?
Most of our dad's still love our Mom and a Madhuri or Rekha so I guess its possible
So maybe after this piece of post i dished out in front of you (like a Master chef contestant I might never find Love but then I've found love and to me Love is the Craving of a Chilled Thumbs-Up after a spicy roadside PaoBhajji on a winter night.
