LOVE STORY......................


this is the opening line of one of my favourite books, LOVE STORY. as the title suggests its a love story. in every way its a love story where every bond between different characters is based on love and its different forms. the love between a girl and a boy, the love between a father and a daughter, the love between a son and his parents which never existed.

the most wonderful thing about this book was that the end was declared in the first line itself. so there was no mystery involved. its merely a tale of pure emotions. simple conversations and circumstances touches your heart.

the hero of the story oliver hates his parents and his heritage just too much. whereas the heroine jennifer loves everything in her life, including her father and oliver with great passion and devotion. love begins to unfold between these two individuals whose opinions and passions are as opposite as noth and south poles. but the only thing that bindsthem together is their love for one is not always a bed of roses. after a hell lot of struggle when they were able to get together and build a new life for themselves, oliver discovers that jenny is dying. slowly like a flower jenny withers and finally dies. but the emotions reciprocated in the words of eric segal cannot be depicted in my post.

one can understand love story and its effect only by reading it. its a story of love, passion, compromises, devotion, understanding and emotions. and the moral of the story is,

दर्द की बारिश..............

दर्द की बारिश सही मद्धम ज़रा अहिस्ता चल,

दिल की मिटटी है अभी तक नम ज़रा अहिस्ता चल।

तेरे मिलने और फिर तेरे बिछड जाने के बीच,

फासला रुसवाई का है कम ज़रा आहिस्ता चल।

अपने दिल ही में नही है उसकी महरूमी की याद,

उस की आंखों में भी है शबनम ज़रा आहिस्ता चल।

कोई भी हमसफ़र 'रशीद' न हो खुश इस कदर,

अब के लोगों में वफ़ा है कम ज़रा आहिस्ता चल।

(मुमताज़ रशीद)

" जीत ले जाए कोई मुझ को नसीबों वाला,
ज़िन्दगी ने मुझे दांव पे लगा रक्खा है।"
(क़तील शिफाई )

कहते हैं की जब हम कुछ सोचते रहते हैं तो हमारे खयालातों से जुड़ी कई बातें अपने आप हमारी आंखों के सामने आने लगती हैं। पिछले दो महीनों में जो कुछ भी सहा उसके बाद यही महसूस हो रहा था की मैं तो सच मुचजिन्दगी की हाथों कठपुतली बन गई हूँ, और आज अचानक ये शेर दिख गया। लगा जैसे मेरे ही दिल की बात किसी ने शब्दों में बयां कर दी हो।
