Love Beyond3 mins 1.6K 3 mins 1.6K
I guess love comes in many forms. The most celebrated and popularized version being the romantic one. People say that those who have not experienced love have missed a lot in life, but for me those who have experienced it, however fleetingly, and then lost it are the truly unlucky ones.
Like many others in today's tech savvy world, I came to know him through a social networking site. The fact that we both come from Goa, a common native place, is what made us connect instantly. After six months of chatting and messaging we grew fond of each other and decided to meet up in Delhi, as I stay in Delhi and he was going to finish his final exams in his chosen field that is the Indian Army in Agra.
Meeting him was a dream come true because he was everything I had asked for, if not much more. Adjectives fall short when I try to describe him.Chivalrous, caring, sweet, considerate, friendly; all these words just make up a tiny but core part of his wonderful personality.
Finally the dream date was over and it was time to face reality. I bid him goodbye, desperately trying to hold back the tears that were threatening to fall. While, I was sitting in the auto taking me back home, I realized that this is what I had been hoping and waiting for all along love at first sight!!
The next few days were the best and the worst days of my life. The feeling of floating in love coupled with the gut instinct that something unfortunate was going to happen. We continued chatting and I felt myself falling more and more in love with him. The news that I had been dreading for finally reached my ears.
He had received his posting .He would be in Ladakh the next week. The second and the last time I saw him was at the Delhi airport .I knew that our relationship was over because I was not strong enough to be married to an Army officer, who would willingly sacrifice his life if needed, for the sake of our beloved country. I did not have the courage to lead a life of constant fear and terror. We stopped contacting each other because I knew that if anything happened to him, I would not be able to bear the heartbreak.
So today I do not know whether he is alive or dead. I continue to believe that he is alive. He will always be the love of my life, the man who loved me enough to sacrifice his love for me, for the sake of our country's and my well being. The love that goes BEYOND..
