On the Rocks, Parting painfully.

Img src:  My Click

Priya and Pervaiz sat in silence holding their hands in faint hope, grazing hard into the vast and void sky, on the damp and hard rock facing the aching sea, watching each wave splash in merry and  breaking  finally just like their dreams .

Both together, swallowed a lump of pain and hopelessness when they knew that it was time to bid Goodbye to each other as all their efforts for staying together in the bond of marriage had failed in vain and Priya had her wedding in a couple of days to an unknown soul from a different planet where all in her family except her belonged.

At that moment, the two puzzled souls were circumscribed and swarmed in nervous thoughts, their heart sank into their gut  of incorrigible helplessness, they felt like getting lost from the society of illogical differences forever but that was not the way they wanted to end it.

The waves of the sea watched them and wept along, as they passionately kissed and hugged, shedding tears in each other’s arms, not willing to let go of their love and from each other's lives forever. 

A part of their heart  remained on those rocks as they left, that evening their curses to the society filled the air for shattering their dreams, peeling their soul layer by layer, parting them forever in the name of religion .

  3. It remains still a great Indian tragedy that caste stands between love and reason.

  4. This is so sad love should never end so cruelly, My husband tells a story of an ancestor of his who was brave enough to fight class in society. She was a lady and he a lowly servant to her family but she ran away with him to the New World and became his wife.
