Green leaves survive in harsh summer
Naim Naqvi | 18 Jun 2009

Fall in love but don't stumble. Be consistent, not persistent. Share but never be unfair. True love is the most resilient - the more you suppress it, the more it springs back.

If you are sincere and honest in love, you will overcome all problems. Love is God ! Shiny green leaves survive in harsh summer because the tree has its roots deep inside earth. Love is not possession or ownership. In "As You Like It" Act 5, Scene 11 William Shakespeare says: "How bitter it is to look into happiness through another man's eyes !" It breaks one's heart to see one he/she looked happy with someone else but it isn't more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you? Love makes us happy but often it hurts also. Love is a serious game.

However, in today's age of electronic love there are tectonic changes from the loyalties of  Leila Majnu. Values, traditions, customs, castes, religions and lives are sacrificed at a mere click of button. We are moving so fast that we don't even bother to look back at the path of destruction we are leaving behind. They say we are in rocket age and we are in search of love. Love and happiness travel together but they are at different wavelengths. Never tell you love if you mean to break the heart. Never look into the eyes when lie. The cruellest thing that you can do to a fellow human being is to let fall in love when your intention is not to catch the fall. True love can't be found if it doesn't exist.

Fall in love but don't stumble. Be consistent but not persistent. Share but never be unfair. The true love has the strongest resiliency - the more you suppress it the more it springs back.
