“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.” – Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist When I was young, I had a voracious curiosity for the arts and sciences. I loved to sketch and enjoyed going to museums with my parents and siblings. They were big on opening their children’s eyes beyond […]
A short love story of Silvia and Matthew, hailing from completely different social background and brought together by their affection for music. Two lovers vowed to spend their life together only to fall apart in pieces.
This is the second book I have read that is written by Erich Segal. Love Story was brilliant in its portrayal of evident and non-evident emotions. Only Love, throughout its length was also impeccable, the everlasting bond between Matthew and Evie and the magnetism between Matthew and Silvia. A heartbreaking story of a love lost and a love found. But when it comes to end, how he (Matthew) can say that I have always loved you, Evie. We, as human, always keep parts of them whom we loved once. One can be free and moved on. And in order to do so, we forgive them and ourselves, keep the good memories with ourselves and not put blame on the other one. Whatever the reason Silvia had for her disappearance from his life whether it was sense of responsibility or fear for survival, it cannot change the fact what she and Matthew had once was beautiful and it was Love.
वो तितली जो आया करती थी मेरी अनसोयी ख्वाबों में
खींचे ले जा रही मुझे अपनी सितारों में
मध्धम सी हवाऎं मदहोश करती फिजाऒं में
इक जानी पहचानी सी दुनिया जैस॓ सुनी हो कहानियों में
मैं भी चल पड़ी न जाने किस रवानी की खोज में
न रोक पायी मुझे मेरी ही दुनिया, थी मैं बेख्याली में
नाउम्मीदी और बेयकीनी जो पनप चुकी थी इस दुनिया की फितरत पे
सवाल कर रही थी मुझसे, कैसा अहसास खींचे ले जा रहा मुझे तुझसे दूर
ना रह गई कोई डोर जो खींच ले वापिस तेरी ओर
मैं ढूंढने चली इक बूंद उम्मीद स्नेह और नवीनता की
लिए उत्सुकता इक अनिश्चित, अनद॓खी रवानी की
जो दे सके वजह मुझे फिर स॓ इक खूबसूरत जिन्दगानी की।
