Of course I liked Love Aaj Kal! I think any one who has broken up a relationship would like it. If you didn't like it, you're in a good place to have missed the opportunity to identify with it. And if you did like it, you're in a better place since you have probably been in the prolonged emotional storm that a broken heart creates.
Breaking up isn't easy. I have had wonderful relationships, and when I look back, I rarely see the bad times. That made it even more difficult. And the last thing I remember is whose idea it initially was. I haven't stayed in touch with people I once loved. I don't regret it because I don't want to associate any other feelings with them. I'm happy to lose them as friends if I can preserve them in the role they once played.
I haven't been in a relationship of any sort for 2 years. Now I think I like someone. But it has been two years since I even spoke about being in love. Strange coming from someone who had found herself in love since the age of 17. Saying the Love word was never difficult for me. Friends would often wonder how I felt the emotion so easily. I did indeed. I fell in love very easily because I associated very little fear with it. I was always free to fall in love. Its life's irony that I now stay so far from it. I don't fear it or doubt it but I'm at zero now. I have forgotten the rules. I don't know where to start. The distance gives me comfort.
Only 2 days back I was talking (preaching) to someone about why love doesn't have to be difficult. It doesn't have to be complicated. I find it so easy to try to free his mind. But I confess I'm finding it difficult to get there myself...
The title is for the song in my ears. Its Yeh Dooriyan from Love Aaj Kal. And I really think that life after the emotional storm is a better place.
