Do you believe in “Love at first sight”?
It’s strange. Yes, talking about such a subject is very peculiar when you are never expected to speak about this most tantalizing feature of the Human lives. But sadly, every person speaks this strange language at some point of their lives. I don’t consider it necessary but don’t even know whether you can escape it or not. And if you find someone talking about this strange thing on this earth, you figure out that this person has gone straight into the hole with his head up. But this certainly doesn’t means that time has come. How can you forget what Love is?
Love is something that drives you through your life. Without Love, your life is empty. You won’t smile, you won’t laugh, you won’t cry and you won’t even talk if you have never received or given Love. Of course, to verify this one will have to live a life without love. Well, every person is bound to it, even if unknowingly and thus Love guides our way till death and even after it, or simply till eternity. Our mother’s love for us is her love at first sight. Our father’s care for us is his love at first sight, even a lot more than that. Our siblings love for us is their love at first sight. Your best friend too is your love at first sight. So, even if you try hard, you can’t escape from this magic of love. This is the real magic. But generally we separate these Loves of our life from the main stream because these are the indispensable part of our lives. So we don’t take a single chance with them. I will do the same. I won’t talk about my dearest loves on this earth which were god’s gift to me and will talk about those who entered my life later with time and then became my identity.
My first “First love” is Music. I can live one day without eating food but not without music. It’s an indispensable part of me. I love it. If ever on this earth can complete you besides your own Self, I think it is this. I can’t even imagine lives without music. Guess, how those few music haters live.
Frankly speaking, I don’t have just one first love but a number of them. My second first love was Science and will be forever. I loved Science even before I knew the word. Curiosity is its Master. Those who are curious to know about their world discover Science. I was always asking questions, “Why?”, “How?”, “When?”. Most of the times, I got my answers. Even when they were able to satisfy me at that time, I later discovered the truth behind them myself. But the most unsatisfactory of all was “Why”. “Why do we have stars? Why do we have plants? Why do we eat? Why do we sleep? Why do we need switches to switch on these lights? Why is the sun up in the sky? Why moon comes at night? Why we can’t go up in the sky? Why we don’t have wings? Why we have to study? Why is this “Why” on this Earth?” Poor elders. They are bombarded by these “Whys” by the so called god’s loves, children. We love children because they love “Why”. And elders hate to answer them because they hate “Whys”. And they hate “Whys” because they are afraid to encounter the truth, because to know the truth of these “Whys” is impossible for them. They can’t tell this to their children because the moment they will, they will finish everything on this earth. Humans have to give up this “Why” at least at some point of their lives if they want to die with peace. Science is at least able to answer a few of those “Whys” and that’s why I love it.
I have one more love but I cannot call it the love at first sight because I hated it for a long time until I realized that this is actually what I needed the most. It’s Physics. I resented it for a long time because of its incomprehensibility due to some leftover confusion. Later, I realized that I won’t find my existence without it. I separated Physics from Science because for me it’s more than Science due to some very special reasons.
So these are my three loves. But I wonder that what the actual definition of love is. In the end, it’s only an emotion but so strong that it gets hold of you. How you deal with this emotion actually takes course of your life. Are we responsible for this emotion every time? I don’t agree with this completely. How can you ever on this earth know that what will you fall in love with? Even after marriage people spend years wondering whether they found their true love. How are you going to define true love? How come it is different from Love? Can we ever know that what this stupidest and strangest thing on the earth is which drives the whole world and the entire universe crazy? This is the biggest confusion the human kind is suffering from. When you yourself are struggling to find the meaning of your own existence on this earth, how can you rely on something so futile originating from another’s existence that is a mere creation just like you? This single thing on the earth drives one crazy. But life without love would definitely be hell. If love has no meaning, why does it change you from within? Why it makes life difficult for you? Why is it so difficult to forget it when you come to realize that it is as real as a mirage? This is a complete mess and it’s better to stay away from it. But the most important of all, bet yourself, you can’t stay away from this ever, at least not till death.
