Romeo & Juliet

Been so long since i posted something on love..a topic i had been avoiding for sometime..now, i guess..is the right time to bring up an issue close to my heart..


Who were not aware of the well-known suicides of this most famous lovers of all time? Romeo & Juliet...Or..who could have dispute the strong bond of love shared by Shahjahan & Mumtaz..who then proceeded to build Taj Mahal for his wife?..Or..who would forget Laila & Majnun who were hopelessly in love..

What are the similarities these stories have?? What the common factors??

They are all TRAGIC..

Must all the love stories be tragic to be remembered? Must it have to be a disaster for us to cherish it?

I had no mood for a new post..not yet..but a sudden thought of people's perception of all-time-favourite love stories just pushed me to type this out..

my heart is longing for love.. aching for care..certainly not wishing it to end tragically..i believe none of us want it that way..but why do we enshrine others' sorrow?

cool post Amu! U bring out the best topics to the table...

**Must all the love stories be tragic to be remembered?

there is something more memorable and magical in a tragedy than in a happy-ending. Tragic love stories are memorable cos the 2 involved didnt get the chance to be together...they were derpived of the very Love that brought them together. Besides Love is not a vicious thing so for it to end in a total oppositte manner is a shock to everyone's systems...hence it's remembered more. It lasts in our memory becos of the shock and despair it brings.



**but why do we enshrine others' sorrow?

why cos we dun want such a terrible thing to happen to us...so we feel for such ppl and we know how fragile life is...it's those ppl who r sensitive that feel more abt such ppl...there r some who dun give a damn abt others' sorrow. Im always feeling for those who died in the name of love...it's takes one hell of a courageous soul to do that.

and you bring out the best comments too :)

hmm..an tragic end to something as pure as love made us to remember them..we are saying it takes courage to die for love..

but how about those who struggled all the way, dont't they deserve all the attention and place in our heart as well? don't their deeds to be taken as examples? why should we pull ourself into sorrow remembering others' tragedy, while we can pick ourselves up with the ones with happy endings as well?

Taj Mahal for his wife?
There was no concept of TAX during those days. If it wud've continued, I wud've made Taj Mahal for ma ex too....I mean not that BIG one...but altleast the size of ma PALM...alright, both the palm together, of pure marble, mind you :)

Must all the love stories be tragic to be remembered?
I think so..
Coz tragic ending make stories easier to remmeber...
Guys can use this to impress gals later in future (like we are doing now)...
People end up making sad movies..
Guys end up taking gals in the theater and then....(do I need to elaborate)..
Emotional black mailing sellss....its easier to win someone from tears, rather than laughter..

:)

Romeo & Juliet...
Shahjahan & Mumtaz..
Laila & Majnun..

I think you forgot Leonardo and Kate...
Kate....
mmmmmmm
*Droool*

*DOH*

Okie...
On a serious note, am000nie piez, not every story has to end up in tragedy, but sad stories make way into the history somehow...I dunnno...

My blog started with a sadness and depression...and now Im doing pretty good...touch wood..

Me said...

I agree with Keshi and arz000n...
arz000n ...i feel for you....same experience yaar...but I think i'll create a blog for my ex...hehe..no taj mahal...

Keshi said...

wut Avik...u too? awww HUGGGGGGGGZ! heyyy all of us seem to have become famous from tragedies lol!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

z000nie lolz ur funny!

**its easier to win someone from tears, rather than laughter

I dun agree on this tho...its not so easy to win ppl by tears...the truth is real tears should win real hearts...but some ppl fake it and somehow win some temporary hearts...sooner or later they will come to know the truth :)



am000nie muahhh!

**but how about those who struggled all the way, dont't they deserve all the attention and place in our heart as well?

yes we all learn from em too...and we respect em....but tragedies make us feel sorry for em and we feel for them too much cos they have been through too much pain...the others r living happily na...thats why.

tulipspeaks said...

awww..z000nie and k000kie.

thank you so much for being here with me..sometimes i do wish you guys in KL.

z000nie.. 'which is right and which is not' is NOT related to my thesis,which i am confident of finish soon.. this is something else or should i say ARE something else..and i am trying to solve whichever i can..

thank you so much for your kind words..i really appreciate them..

=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

k000kie..well...i just came back from the mall..of course, it won't solve the prob..and it does help me to relax..err..the therapy costed me about 100 bucks :P (if you know what i mean)..

i will surely e-mail you soon..will try to figure out the possible solution in 2 days time..if not, it means i need professional help..and thats from you!

=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

prakash...those days love may be a taboo and tragic ends happened..but then, why we, the new generation still talking about these tragic love stories? i don't see the relevant of those stories to us anymore..

=am000nie=

Łóòň Ġãĺ said...

I might just commit suicide as well.

People dont wanna cherish & remember the 'happy-ending' stories...u see?
Atleast i dunno of a single one.

Tiz a sad world...where people can't keep upto their own promises...i cudnt....
.....not coz they themselves can't but coz o the circumstances.

tulipspeaks said...

gee...cheesy..your first sentence scare the hell out of me!

but you are right abt this sad world..don't they want to see a happy ending? at least children's bedroom fairy tales still have happy endings..

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

Amu I logged in just to see if u were ok...Im glad u sound a bit better than b4 or r u pretending to be ok? Write to me soon and I will check my mail in the morning...

sebia said...

beautiful stuff amoo,my first time here and i feel so much at ease:)
such a sensetive stuff 2 write abt..
well this thing always bugged me that why do we remember tradgedy always and nurture the pain,while we let happiness flow out of our palms like sand,we all are somewhat sadists,we find pain intriguing,we like 2 miss people whn they r gone instead of being happy whn they r with us ,we make epitombs of thm whn they r no more.
how strange..but this is wrld my dear,no fairy GOD mother to dust us with happiness all the time:0)

tulipspeaks said...

we all are somewhat sadists,we find pain intriguing,we like 2 miss people whn they r gone instead of being happy whn they r with us ,we make epitombs of thm whn they r no more.

Kiss me, when i cry..
Love me, when i am still alive..

Govind said...

Hi First timer here!!. Nice blog you've got. Liked it.:)

Well anyways, those stories look good in books. In this materialistic world, its hard to find real love I think. I wonder it exists at all??. New age mantra says, make good money and the world is with you. :)

And thats the way it is!!.

Btw, next month I will be travelling in Singapore n Malaysia for about 10 days. It would be great, if you could provide some tips for me. Thanks in advance.

Adios,
Govind.

tulipspeaks said...

pari..muuaxx and huggss babyyyyyyy..glad you wonder the same. just liek i did..and i hope to find the lucky happy ones too..wonder when these happy ending stories will be made into ever lasting love stories..

thanks for your concern dear..i have decided on something..hope God will be with me..

=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

hi govind..welcome to ==My DiArY==

to say that true love doesn't exist is way too harsh, i would say..it does..but it is hidden among the materialistic ones..err..is there love which can be materialistic?? Me goes with the manthra..Lovers makes mistakes, Love does not..

Just that i want the happy stories to be cherish instead of the tragic ones..thats all..

and why you/we say that tragic love stories are the true ones?? arent those who fought for their love, those who fought till they win placed truth in their feelings as well??

***but why do we enshrine others' sorrow? who would want to happen that sort of thing to them....Generally i don't like to comment on this subject, but today i am gonna take out my actual feeling about it. As per my personal observation(mind u its my personal observation, nothing to do with anybody) i have noticed that the real love always ends up tragically, don't know why?i mean look at the examples u gave, they were actually really made for each other and madly in love with each other, but what happened, none of'em apart from shahjahan and mumtaaz could really have a happy life. So keeping in mind with whatever happened to those lovely people, its better to be on a safer side...:):):)I myself had a broken relationship, again i am into a relationship but this time automatically i am more cautious about everything, the feeling is different, maybe due to whatever maturity i might have achieved due to my previous experience, more or less i am having a whale of a time and above all i always keep in mind that we are not made for each other, we do compliment each other well and if things go like it is right now, we might end up having a happy future with each other. Phew!!!!i guess its enough, lets not use up the space so lavishly...:):):)And by the way it was a cool post overall.

tulipspeaks said...

south..welcome again.. :) and i don't mind you taking up the space, not a problem at all :)))

i have noticed that the real love always ends up tragically, don't know why?

gee..south..in my opinion, there are real loves which has happy ending..its merely our ignorance which failed to realise the importance of these loves..we are the one who failed to give significance to those succeeded..instead we are pouring our thoughts, writing countless poems and plays on tragedies..

So keeping in mind with whatever happened to those lovely people, its better to be on a safer side...
hmm..looks like these tragedies serves as a reminder of not landing in the same boat as them..while we get to learn from people's mistake, we should be able to learn from the great successful love stories as well..

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

South I wish u said more in my posts too :) Ur pretty analytical.


**i have noticed that the real love always ends up tragically, don't know why


thats true. Real love I believe is too powerful and too bright for many to stand it's light (I dun mean the 2 involved but the ppl ard them). hence most of em dun get to end up together...I dunno thats what I have noticed.

tulipspeaks said...

novin,

we are not suppose to be judgemental..rite?


=am000nie=

novin said...

Judgement ilaai :) Nijammmm.... :) Unmai :)

Love = Something unspeakble. unthinkable . mind blowing.

Lovers = XX XY , just reactions of hormones :) ( PLUS some loneliness )

tulipspeaks said...

novin,

its a bit inaccurate to say Love is unspeakable..or even unthinkable..

Lovers are the medium for the Love to "speak"..

Lovers are the one who carrying the legend called LOVE with them..

The reaction of hormones you are talking about is merely physical attraction, lust, or can be purely sex..

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

Novin sorry to interrupt but I dun agree with wut ur saying...thats a callous thing to say that Lovers are just a pack of homrones and loneliness...thats LUST btw :)

Keshi.

novin said...

:-) ... My words are eternal.. :) u will know the truth :) after few years :)

tulipspeaks said...

after few years of time, the truth prevails..alright..

after that 'few years' , one may realise if its Love or Lust..The Love which i am talking about..or The Lust which you are talking about..

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

Thanks Amu for answering me :)

Novin the Lust will fade real quick, even after few years...not Love. Seems like u havent ever been in real love...pardon me if Im wrong :)

Keshi.
