The paradoxes I believe

I never really appreciated Mills and Boons while in school and college though read a few classics. A book worm since school days, I exhausted almost all books of Robin Cook, John Grisham, Daniel Steel and few others. But I enjoy watching a complete romantic movie. A true Sagittarian and hopelessly romantic, I so much believe in happy endings and fairy tales. I watched Wake Up Sid third time last weekend and realized that I can watch it any number of times.

Most of my friends and few in family have had love marriages. They clicked and it amazes me even today. In all their cases, one of the partners didn’t fit the “tall, dark, handsome” or “fair, slim, beautiful” bill. But everyone’s story borders on surrealism.

Beauty and the beast, dumb and intelligent, calm and noisy, pompous and modest. You may say opposites attract. But I guess, it’s the feeling of incompleteness that binds them together. My belief goes stronger whenever I see my uncle and aunt, the most odd couple, but married for 40 long years!


  1. You said it right.. after a lifetime of holding on an unrealistic image of romance and failing, today after I found my true love story I understood it is the imperfections and the not obvious things that truly matter!!!

  2. someone who still wud like to believe that "real" love stories are possible, I'd have to say our exposure to all the fairy tales in childhood and our "graduation" to Mills and Boons is college may have hurt us permanently.
    That apart tho, I have learnt that the tall-dark-handsome formula really isnt much to go on...ppl turn all kindsa beautiful when you are in love :D
