Gone are the days of janam janam Ka pyar, undying love and soul mates till eternity.
Relationships today have become very frivolous, be it amongst families, friends or more. Recently a friend of mine (in today's Facebook age, every one you know is a "friend" irrelevant of everything else.)
So like I was saying, a friend of mine, whom I know from my yoga classes, an 18 yer old, pretty girl from a good family, recently got engaged.
No there's nothing wrong in getting engaged, but then, she was seeing someone else,
she was in a long distance relationship, which I found out was a relationship of great understanding, understanding that there would be no strings attached, no commitments.
She was with this guy who is settled outside India, so they used to meet up as and when circumstances allowed them, she used to go to a city which was convenient for him when he was in the country, and "meet up, catch up and a enjoy each other's company", whatever that means is upon your interpretation.
Throughout the period that they were together, maybe around a yer or so, both knew the minute they found someone more suitable more "right", the other person would bolt faster than the speed of light.
And thats what happened, she met a righter Mr. Right, and decided to tie the knot. But how does she know he's more right than the older Mr. Right?

Relationships are also equally fragile, we all know there are lots of fishes around, so if one dsnt suit you try some other. Divorces are so common these days because of the same reasons.
They say our lives are more stressful, more tensed, but why did this happen?
When we have the best technologies, best gadgets machines to help us work more smoothly, easily, and more efficiently, why are we becoming like machines.
Who is eating away our emotions? Our feelings?
Read a nice quote some time back, all things that make us happy and are good for us are not things. But...
