Am I dreaming? Without any provocation I drifted into
the past. The pastwhichSomebody has rightly said that Love is a many splendoured thing. How true!! Speaking about Love, memories come gushing one by one into my mind. It is all about love, the love which is true, which has all the passion, which has the capability of transforming lives and which makes you feel elated and thrilled. One moment you are alone, but the next moment when this love mania emancipates, you are not what you hitherto used to be! Your thoughts, your feelings and your emotions all are focused on one person, who has the capacity to change your persona without your being conscious of it.
Given bel has all these years
been hidden in the womb
of time and which has now surfaced
on the uppermost layer of my head and heart!! It has shaken me from my
slumber and placed me gently into the lap of those days when love struck me!!
It all happened fifty three years ago. Yes fifty three years have gone by since
I married the man of my dreams. Fifty three years is not a short period. But
both of us feel that all this happened only very recently! The love which reigned upon both of us culminated in uniting us
forever! Ours was a love marriage. My memory is still fresh from the
past. How in spite of obstacles everything fell into place. The one and only
obstacle which came our way was “
a Punjabi girl marrying a Kerala boy”.(I
am from Punjab and my husband is a Keralite.) My father, though he was very liberal,
asked me several times how I would
adjust my food habits, language etc. Similarly, my husband’s
family was apprehensive of his marrying a girl whose parents were settled far
love is always victorious. So was ours!! All this happened more than fifty
years ago, when the society was not so progressive and was reluctant to approve
of such alliances. Even though the marriage took place in Delhi, it had its impact
in Kerala. We were told that some Kerala news papers splashed the news of our
marriage. All these incidents took place more than half a century ago but are etched in my memory very
Fifty three years of married life have
passed away as a reel of a movie. We have enjoyed and shared all good
things together in our journey through life. Adversities never shook us as our
love for each other stood like a rock. We had our share of differences but our
love for each other was strong enough to tide over all such situations.
We have two children and four grand children. Due to God’s grace they are very loving and
caring. On our golden jubilee anniversary, they arranged a gala surprise party
in our honor which had all the trappings of a real wedding.
We have left behind a joyous and perilous road and have reached the
evening of our lives. We are still very warm and care for each other. We are
thankful to BlogAdda for helping us
to revive our old but golden memories. Amen!!
