In the movie Ek Duje Ke Liye, parents of the love partners compel them to stay away for a year to prove their love for each other. They agree and it ends in a tragedy. The pandemic compelled some love pairs to stay away and examine reality. Some may have been successful while some failed.
Those who have a phone might have survived. What about others? It was an acid test of honesty, love and purity. Love is not only a physical attraction; it’s a great bond between two people. Physical relation is a means, but compromisation and adjustment with a situation is the basis. If couples succeed on this point, only then does their love survive.
I remember several legendary love stories like Ram-Seeta, Laxman-Urmila, Nal-Damyanti, etc., but that time was different. There were no advanced means of communication. That time was different. The cultural, social and family restrictions were strong.
But in reality, physical love has great importance in human life because it is the basic need of an individual. It results in reproduction. Whenever an individual is not satisfied with their partner, they try to search for other sources.
Still, the basic concept of love does not change, I think. Those who passed this academic test of love, their love stories will be happy and successful.
