Is Death the Destiny of True Love?

  • SumoMe

Agra, the place hosting the memorabilia of love (Taj Mahal), witnessed an incident of a girl being strangled by her parents because of having a love affair with a boy from a different community, a type of honor killing. Hearing the news, the boy too shot himself dead mid market.

What a gruesome reality…

It’s really very tough to see love taking away someone’s life…

Do we need to know the community, caste, religion, etc of the person before falling in love with them? What an obligation…

Love is nor a business in which we decide our partner with utmost care neither is it a partnership wherein some set of rules and regulations have to be followed. Love is something beyond one’s control. It comes naturally…no boundaries…no restrictions….a free flow of emotions…

Why doesn’t our society accept this?

Being traditional and cultural doesn’t mean to be entwined with it and follow something which is not logical and contemporary to our lives. What logic do these people put forth for such kind of incidents…

“IT IS AGAINST OUR CULTURE AND TRADITIONS.”

So is this a part of their cultural heritage to kill people and that too because they have committed such a heinous crime of falling in love?

Love, the purest feeling of heart, the essence of life, for some a motivating force (& for some a source of distraction). Different people, different interpretations…

History is flooded with such kind of examples where lovers are set apart due to aforementioned reasons .Why many of the love stories meet a sad ending? Why such a feeling not being given the respect which it is worthy of?

Let’s take some live and near examples which everyone has come across. A person who loves to flirt with every girl/boy, spends time with them, enjoys life to the best of their ability, finally marries the person their family wants them to. So, such a person who plays with so many lives is good in the eyes of our society as they is following the so-called norms of our society.

But what about the person who is committed to only one wholeheartedly, wants them to spend life with, to get through every stage of life with them.

It would the biggest crime for them if the person belongs to a different caste, community or religion.

My personal viewpoint is that the person in the second case is a more trustworthy person. Life is not a station wherein people get in and go out….rather it’s a journey in which we need a partner with whom we feel comfortable, over whom we can trust even blindfolded, a person who vows to be with us come what may.

Let everyone be given the right to make a choice not just by law (which has already been given) but by our society too, wholeheartedly….

It’s an urge to the people to come out of their closet, think with an open mind rather say heart so that they get a wholesome view of the scenario. Don’t make death the destiny of LOVE…
