Heartbreak Hotel

I am not blogging frequently why .. simple.. People who know me assume that all of my blogs are my personal experiences. A good pal of mine sent me a couple of inspirational messages, thinking I was depressed as per my last blog :D!!!!K warned me if I published this one ,people would think I was a lovesick teenager, but I am doing so anyway. I like to publish stuff that I feel strongly about – it need not happen to me, but I see it and its feels like a hit in my gut , that’s going to be in the blog!… so G....n u know who you are.. this is’nt abt me, so plzzz don’t send me “heart’s will mend” messages :D:D





Life sometimes plays out a greek tragedy, and even if you are part of the supporting cast, the emotions surrounding the events still play strong. A pal of mine sent me a message that he had got in touch from a long lost colleague. That doesn’t sound bad, but the problem was that this colleague was once a good friend , who had invoked a love triangle, that ended badly for all parties concerned. Thankfully, I wasn’t part of the love drama being played out, but to see the hurt and watch a slow destruction of another friend, by this guys callousness still unnerves me. I keep asking the question “Why”.. why would one purposefully put oneself between a couple who knew each other from mere toddlers, why would one revoke a friendship that lasted through late night get together’s and combined exam cramming sessions on a mere whim and why would anyone go through so much trouble to achieve the lady in question only to move on in a short period. As the friends on the sidelines, we were in a difficult situation, with a distaste lingering by the behavior of the lady and the lothario and a sadness for the Romeo who filled the next tow years of with a series of scotch and whisky bottles. Though the situation ended , as so many in real life, with each of these parties being married to a person , who I am sure had no clue on their past life, it was a difficult lesson I’m sure for the original couple involved.

Another relationship I know ,hit the dirt last week with the girl marrying another , and the guy standing meekly by. The guy gave her up because she couldn’t possibly live his lifestyle (old parents/lot’sa responsibilities)..It was a bad playback of the movie “Unnale Unnale”..Why did they both go through so much heart break, if he knew the situation beforehand and still wasnt ready to face life together?

As K asked me, why I was letting situations that I wasn’t even a party to, irritate me. The reason is I want to live in a world where friendship is honored and love is sacred. Its scary to think that we may bring kids into this world only to prepare them for heartbreak from their closest. As a good friend of mine said once “It’s the survival of the fittest in war and ESPECIALLY in love”. Every situation is a battleground and its getting harder to just live, rather than compete in every single aspect. I thought the classroom ranking system was hard, but the ranking system in the world out there is harder. Its based on money , looks and power,all the things that I grew up to think were not important. The world is getting to be a cold place with relationships being time controlled. I know it must be Utopia to live in a place where peace , harmony and kindness reign supreme, but nowadays I feel that people don’t even want to consider it. The above situations that I described, is what , my friend assures me happens to every girl or guy once in their life. He calls it growing up, but I disagree, just because every other person thinks that morality , love and friendship are something to be discarded doesn’t mean that these are situations to be taken lightly, The above situation should have been an exception, unfortunately its become an occurrence. I somehow don’t know the road ahead on this one, I hope the future generations figures it out though.

Wow that was fun wasnt it!! and now for the smiles…..

1)A man was just waking up from anesthesia after surgery, and his wife
was sitting by his side. His eyes fluttered open and he said,
"You're beautiful." Then he fell asleep again. His wife had never
heard him say that before, so she stayed by his side.A few minutes later his eyes fluttered open and he said,"You're cute."The wife was disappointed because instead of "beautiful," it was now"cute." She asked, "What happened to beautiful?"
The man replied, "The drugs are wearing off."

2.An elderly man walks into a confessional. The following conversation
ensues:
Man: "I am 92 years old, have a wonderful wife of 70 years, many
children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Yesterday, I picked up two college girls, hitchhiking. We went to a motel, where I had sex with each of them three times."Priest: "Are you sorry for your sins?"
Man: "What sins?"
Priest: "What kind of a Catholic are you?"
Man: "I'm Jewish."
Priest: "Why are you telling me all this?"
Man: "I'm 92 years old . I'm telling everybody

Keep smiling
Anu

Hi Anu,

On deep introspections I have found that most of the negetive things happenning to us is because of our own knee-jerk reactions to situations. If situations gives us 10% of pains of our life then unwarranted reactions give us the remaining 90% of the pain.

If only we learn to just absorb the effect of the actions like a shock absorber and react only when it can undo effects of the unpleasant action, our life would be far more enjoyable and relationship more enduring.

Well, (for the first part) you would have read/heared "Love makes people blind" actually its just "lovers blind".

Well, real life aint that bleak afterall, these are just few of the stories out of the many on the battleground of love & life, and not ALL is lost; what matters is what you believe in; and we make choices accordingly; for every story told here or anywhere if analyzed; things were left to much to the chance ; and not choice & vice versa.
(Strange I now many on the sunny side!!)
