Civilizations have changed, people have changed and thus our lives have changed. With this transforming world, our outlook towards love, feelings, emotions, & relationships have narrowed down to form the superficial “WE” that we are today.
From the time immemorial when love was considered a form of purity and fortunate stroke of serendipity to the minimal hook ups of the present; LOVE has lost its true meaning. Our souls have become so shallow that we are unable to see, feel and understand the real love thirsty person within us.
As a middle class family boy, I was brought up discerning SRK as the only “ROMANCE LORD”. From the falling autumn leaves to the romantic downpour singing to his signature pose he had done it all. The romance of his films has etched a love story deep down in my heart. I still think if I ever fall in love, the wind will hum a tune for my ears, my eyes will have only her picture & my heart will pound as fast as a racing horse aka symptoms of true love. But now when I have grown up to be 23, I realize that the romantic love about which I used to hear back then at 17-18 has changed into a modernized trade of well-being and social self-esteem.
Your relationships act as a trumpet for your ego clashing spirit which mediates between the conscious and the unconscious, and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identity. Love for your girl/boyfriend is a method of portraying a nonchalant behavior towards the masses even if you are encountering turmoil inside you.
How can the world undergo such a metamorphosis in only 5 years?
I had the answer to my question. EMPTINESS, FALSENESS and LOATHSOMENESS have donned their caps in our hearts. We as human beings have entered a phase of darkness and immorality.
Love for us is a mere game of sentimental notion which ends and starts everyday. People nowadays rely on the physical symptoms of love more than the emotional context of it. Find a girl on social website, chat with her, take her on a date may be once or twice, sleep with her and finally commit that you love her. This commitment will last for a month or two and then either she will get attracted to somebody else or you will start dating someone. During the final rounds she will ditch you or you will betray her or you call it a mutual break up and neither the boy nor the girl will have GUTS to end it in-person so, we use the virtual medium.
In short,love these days is all about: starts from your pants, stays up in the bed for a week and ends on the phone.
