The Law of Conservation of Love !


The events depicted in this post are fictitious. Any similarity to any person living or dead is merely coincidental.


Girl (03:04:56am): Happy Valentines Day dear!
ME (03:06:42am): Thnks, wud u b my valentine?
Girl (03:08:00am): r u serius? (She expects me to be kidding, 3am at night!)
ME (03:08:45am): m vry serius abt it.

"Love could neither be created nor be destroyed, but it could transform from one form to another.
and sometimes transferred too

Look around yourself and if you could, look over the whole world; You would hardly find someone on earth who hasn't been a subject to this law. Thats the ubiquity of this law.

I'd have really liked to start with a cliche of the origin of love from a mother's womb and then how it gets transformed over a period to many different forms of love however, my friends demanded that I write about the only INTERESTING love this world has. That wasn't the only demand; Unfairly to me! But what better way to explain The Law of Conservation of Love.

Once upon a time……ah, never mind.

People call it the first love, though its logically wrong considering the cliche i spoke about earlier, this is a major transformation of love that a person has in his life. So, it does make sense to call it the first love. I took sometime to realize the first one. Going against the crisp and instant form of love at first sight (like instant noodles), I took almost 3years of friendship to transform to the next form of love. It broke out at 3am (O yea, i've been nocturnal for long) on 14th feb 2005 and in the most romantic way you could ever imagine; SMS! Short Messaging Service really helps when you want to keep it real short ;-)

Girl (03:04:56am): Happy Valentines Day dear!

Yes, its true that the transformation of your love doesn't coincide with transformation of you partner's. It took exactly a year in my case; worth a wait!

This transformation takes you to an entire new world. A world where you find her everywhere and in every girl you see. This is when you realize (even though you knew her through 3years of friendship), that she has the most beautiful eyes in the world. You try to fit her in all the ambitious plans that you had for your future so that she could happily co-exist with you (forever love :)). I, being a human, wasn't an exception. I did find her the right fit in my plans. And if at some places she couldn't fit it; Change the plan! This makes her the reason for what I'am now. And above all is the golden moment thats almost associated with this transformation. Yes, it happened to me once!

Girl (01:14:36pm): Hi dear, i'm so srry but i'm gttng engaged.
ME (01:15:02pm): whtt???

As I'd said earlier, the transformation of your love doesn't coincide with that of your partners. In fact, mine hasn't transformed yet. I'm going through the second phase of this law. Yes, the transfer! But hers was about to get transformed into a new level of love. Not to blame her because we knew this was the fate. This transformation of love is considered the strongest with the social elements supporting it to give strength. This, i believe is after which the cycle starts again. Remember the mom, womb cliche?

On the other hand, after so many painful days (the regular "I can't live without you days!"), the transfer of my love did happen. I realized; rather re-defined what the transform of love, that i'm currently in, means to me! Its just to keep someone happy until she is with me. This eased the route to the next transfer of love. Apparently, another friend of mine had a break up and there was a need to keep her happy. An attempt to achieve this led to the transfer.

Transformations and/or transfers of love is inevitable, if not consciously, it happens within you without you realizing it. Though i've now decided (as always) to go against the nature and cease the transformation and transfer of my love to next level, I hope she gets her transformed soon.

Now, I'm quite happy with the best form of love that I've ever felt. Of that of Friendship. It may not be as interesting as its next level however, it is very important to me!

"I owe a lot to those eyes, because of which I've achieved whatever i have now. Even today, whenever i'm low; whenever i'm depressed, those beautiful pair of eyes motivates me to get up and achieve new heights in life."

Chicken, Baby & Perception!

Look closely at the picture and try to find out a cute little infant lying down. Yes, this is the same image that so many of you would have got in your email at least once. Most of you would have found the baby in it. Others could give it a try now and for those who couldn't even after a try now, there is a reason for it which i would share it at the end.

Off late I realized that there is more to this image than just finding a baby in the bends and curves of a tree. Yes, a deeper insight to the human perceptions or mindset.

All right, by now, I think, all of you would have found the baby hidden in this image. For a first look at this image, its very difficult to find the baby. But, here is something which is more difficult. Try to look at the image again. But this time visualize it as just a tree beside a river (Raw image). Try to lose the baby. Almost impossible. isn't it?

Ever imagined why? Before you knew that it had a hidden baby, this was just a simple image and we found it difficult to find the baby. Now, you know where the baby is, but its almost impossible to go back to the previous state of the image.

Yesterday, my friend cooked chicken for dinner and while eating, I was wondering why I eat chicken and not steak and bacon when all of them are legged beings with a heart pumping blood to all the parts of the body. Then why is it that, while I love chicken, I cannot even imagine eating the other stuff? I figured out that this has something to do with what I learned from this image.

The next para may sound very silly and stupid but if perceived the right way says a lot!

I now see chicken as a food (found the baby) and not as a processed living being(Raw image). Now when I try to change my perception to look at chicken as a dead animal(Raw image), and not as a food, I find it very difficult. Almost impossible!

On the other hand, I always see steak and bacon as animals killed and processed (Raw image) and never could find the baby in it. May be if I try hard, I'd be able to find the baby, and then it would be almost impossible to see the raw image again.

I often wonder if the whole world is driven by perceptions, with people who are trying hard to find the baby, people who have found the baby and trying to see the raw image again.

Extremists who kill may have found the baby as killing people. They have visualized the image of the world as spreading extremism. They may keep on killing until they see and perceive the raw image again, which is almost impossible!

And for people who are still finding the baby in the image, they are vegetarians. They couldn't perceive chicken or steak or anything. For them its just the raw image.

Before making any perception, think hard about it. Because once you set your mind, its hard to get back!
