Who reasons wisely is not therefore wise; His pride in reasoning, not in acting lies.

I was asked to write on a topic ‘Does love need a reason?’ by one of my Orkut friend!
Well, when I was asked my straight answer was that ….no love doesn’t need any reason..it just happens, isn’t it? Or there is someone who disagrees!

“Don't find love, let love find you. That's why it'scalled falling in love, because you don't forceyourself to fall, you just fall.”

Well, I am sure different people will have different reasoning to this based on there personal experience. I believe love doesn’t need any reason it just happens! Some may later dig into it to find what the reason was and they relate it to one or the other!

“It takes a minute to have a crush on someone,an hour to like someone, and an day to love someone...but it takes a lifetime to forget someone”

This is a true story when a girl-Sarah with her fiancé Michael came from Australia to visit India. They planned there visit from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and hence they hired a Guide - Subramanian.
This Guide was suffering from leprosy, something which even today people hesitate to associate with and more you will see this attitude with educated people only!

The Guide was very nice and helpful and it so happened that Sarah fell in love with her Guide even though she knew she was about to get married to Michael in 6 months time.
When Michael came to know about this, he tried to cancel the trip there itself and planned to go to Australia along with Sarah.

“Love is like heaven, but it can hurt like hell”
Sarah was sure she is not going back with Michael and she refused to go with Michael. This wasn’t it, she also said Michael please accept this ring back as I wont be able to marry you.

“It breaks your heart to see the one you love is happywith someone else, but it's more painful to know thatthe one you love is unhappy with you”

Michael thought Sarah has gone crazy and so he left her and went to Australia. Sarah’s love, care and affection couldn’t remain hidden from the Guide –Subramanian.

Subramanian was a practical person and he has seen the world and the people and hence he tried to explain Sarah as what is reality and what she thinks is easier could be her biggest mistake of her life.
Sarah was ready for any challenge. She planned to live with Subramanian and tried to take care of him. She ordered some special medicines especially for leprosy through her parents in Australia and she treated Subramanian and took good care of him by maintaining hygiene.

“Love cures people -- both the ones who give itand the ones who receive it”

The good care, cleanliness and proper medicine at the proper time helped Subramanian to recover fast. He still had those marks. His some of the fingers did not even exist but Sarah could save Subramanian and they finally got married.

“Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man”

Today Sarah happily lives with Subramanian, in one of the villages in Chennai and you wont believe she is a lady who wears Saree, cooks in the olden type of stove made of mud, she puts lots of oil in her hair and makes long plat out of her hair and puts flowers too. If you look at her today you wont find that Sarah who came from Australia, you will find Subramanian’s wife Sarah Amma :D
Yes, that’s called love, where there was no reason, no pity but she just knew she was in love with Subramanian ~ why, when, how?? Had no place!
You don’t need a reason to be in love…do you?

“Faith makes all things possible.
Love makes them easy”

As usual a good read. Whenever i reach for your blog, i expect to read something and get lost in reflection.... at times your thoughts do succeed in that .....

Its really admirable and surprising to see that you are able to write on any topic so effortlessly despite a busy life at work and family. And thats the difference between being gifted for something and doing something out of big effort.

Have been trying to write something on " Does love need any reason" since long, and when i told you so, it was to provoke myself to start writing on it ... and now after reading you, think, i should start .... :)

So whats next ?

" Meaning of life " ?

Country roads, take me home, to the place I belong...

This time of the year, I really miss India, specially Pune. Growing up in Pune as a Malayalee (Keralite) is one thing but I grew up watching...
