But, is it nothing to know when you are dying, when you are about to take leave of this world, of its joys and sorrows, when the past of your life is unfurled before you, when eternity opens wide its portals, is it nothing to know at that last awful,supreme moment of your lives, that you have not lived in vain, that you have lived for the benefit of others, that you have lived to help in the cause of your country's regeneration?

'He couldn't help turning back once again..surreptitiously though..

She was hot..different from what he ever imagined in his umpteen dreams where he crawled and lay entangled with some female..
The voluptuous body,and the pink sumptuous lips and the seductive eyes that glanced at him with a coy filled cue and the long artistic fingers with the beautifully crafted nails and the long slender neck and the short hair that heaved over her shoulders which fell more on the browner side unusually for a south-indian:he couldn't help himself from being aroused..

He had this unsuppressible urge to hold her,..kiss her..unbutton her shirt and lay naked with her..Everytime he looked at her,he went 20yrs down the memory lane when Mr.Athlete weds Ms.Damsel was all that he felt people talked about..Wherever he turned to,all he heard was a 'made for each other' remark..Unlike every other love marriages which sabotaged in a few years due to problems unidentifiable,theirs was the perfect combination of elements resulting in two other impeccable creed of compounds..

Deepak's was a happy family..as happy as it could be..with a wife,educated and austere,demanding reverence from who ever got to know of her..with the two sweet boys who always topped in school not just in acads but in extra curriculars,thanks to his wife's meticulous efforts..with a job giving him all kinds of satisfaction ranging from monetary benefits to the leisure factor,that he ever looked forward to during his days of pursuing a job..

Problems started when she started being repulsive at bed..Initially all he did was blame the work pressure..He pulled on,patiently,with hopes of a new sunrise..But all the more patient he was,more offensive she became..He even started doubting his manhood..doubting her fidelity..Until he got to know of the physical changes that she was undergoing..Menopause..the inevitable phenomenon in every woman's life..

Deprivation of a meal coupled with an offer of cake plunged him into the abyss of infidelity with his newly joined private secretary..He forced himself into oblivion,.of his wife..his children..his duties towards his family..all that appeared before him was his bodily pleasures which he no more could hold on..'

Bangalore shows me new ways of life that im unaccustomed to..of infidelity..of flings..one night stands..of fragile human relationships..Aren't we losing the values and traditions that we long upheld??Reminds me of Life in Metro,in dino..
I had a colleague narrate to me an incident which happened here..a group of friends,gals and guys,who were close enough to be found always together,..be at work place or parties or hang outs or treks..among them,a guy who escapes from bachelorhood invites others for a party at his home,which was a 1bhk..A booze party which left not even a single person even remotely close to sober..The couple sleep in their bedroom and everyone else in their gang in the hall..

Partying remains the mantra of their life for the next 3 months..together they were,as always..friends forever they called themselves..Until,one girl,a spinster,in the group had a morning sickness and ended up in a doctor's bed only to be diagonosed as pregnant..None of the guys know who is responsible,and neither does the girl..Alcohol just stirred every goddamn emotions out of every one there and now all of the so called forever friends are awaiting for the child to be delievered for a DNA test to finalize which guy will have his wedding bells ringing with the girl..

Life is surely changing and more than that, what was hush hush before is being flaunted now. I dont thing matters like infidelity and bigamy are new to our culture.

Holy cow..i missed a beat reading the last part about the preg girl....what a predicament...

But i find infidelity 2 b something which had been there from the dawn of civilization...talk about Othello, julius ceaser.....and in rural india, and not just in metros or big cities.

I think our forefathers were much more liberal. They openly kept mistresses. prostitution was never illegal...in fact most of the dance forms( bharathanatyam, mohiniattam, odesey etc) evolved from a devdasi culture prevailant in the 15th and 16th centuries...

I dont find infidelity to be a gross sin( i know, i am mad). If two couple are in love they cannot think of a third person( like in my case).. If there is no love then i guess people look to others for love or sex....its natural and its not something which will change with change in culture or civilization....ciao, loved this post. :)

Such a different post.
It is sad for the girl. I usually try to be non-judgmental. But in this case I felt how could someone lose one's senses completely like this? How do you think the child would feel when he/she comes to know the story of his birth?
Infidelity may have been around for centuries, but I would still find it hard to forgive it.

sounds all like a 21st century breakdown gayu... things that are happening in the anem of partying and 'fun' are so impractical and juvinile we give it a status of adulthood... and through that everyone suffers...

nice thoughts there....

take care and keep writing........

"When two adult people want to live together, what is the offence? Does it amount to an offence ? Living together is not an offence. It cannot be an offence," a bench comprising chief justice KG Balakrishnan, justice Deepak Verma, and justice BS Chauhan observed. The court said that even Lord Krishna and Radha lived together, according to mythology.

these also happened here

Its the same no matter where one goes. Especially in Petersburg, where a good deal of my colleagues were pretty much indulged in frolicking with every Russian floozie possible. Their excuse being "they're men"
And at the same time being a virgin guy is an absolute faux pas of late.
I just realized how retarded we all have become. I suppose its the brainwashing on account of watching too many American Pie movies.
Nice take on the matter though!!!
Was good to read!!! :)
