Who has ever understood this game of love? Whether you are single or in a relationship doesn’t love always seem to leave you a little doubtful and dissatisfied?
Here are few atrocious misconceptions Bollywood has drilled into your minds and made the notion of love/ dating twisted, unrealistic; bordering ridiculous.
1. ANYTHING LESS THAN SINGING SONGS IN MUSTARD FIELDS IS NOT ROMANTIC
That is exactly why writing a sweet letter, buying a bunch of flowers or even star gazing just would not do. Girls are not happy till you break into a song every time she needs you to profess your love for her, or go down on your knees ready for mush worship or cut your hands and write a letter with your blood. Perhaps that is the reason; guitarists are the luckiest men ever. Ladies this is exactly how these stupid-ass romantic films have played with your minds and stopped you from relishing the sweetness of love expressed through simple gestures.
2. A BOY AND A GIRL CAN NEVER BE FRIENDS
Such outrageous ideologies can prove disastrous especially for the single desperate Indian man who dives into the friendships of hot women with future expectations but ends up becoming their “friend zoned” errand boy without reaping the yield (SEX) they had in their minds while sowing such seeds of friendship. Ladies can fall into that trap too. This might come as a brain damaging shock but a boy and a girl, a boy and a boy, a man and an old woman, a girl and an old man, anyone can be friends with anyone they choose without the validation of THE GREAT INDIAN BOLLYWOOD CIRCUS!
3. TWO PEOPLE WHO INITIALLY HATE EACH OTHER FALL DEEPLY IN LOVE LATER
Well unfortunately, there are high chances that your once sworn enemy (although belonging to the opposite sex) might remain your enemy even in the later part of your life without conveniently and magically turning into sex god/diva for you! So don’t go overboard with your sadism while still at war expecting the uglier your fight the deeper your love gets. She/he might never want to see your face again.
4. TRUE LOVE NEVER DIES
One might feel that nothing, be it time, or distance, or space, or gravitational pull, or natural disasters, or death, or amnesia, or atomic blasts in outer space, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING can deter the passion of your lover for you if their love were as true as the Shahrukh’s and the Katrina’s. However such people are in urgent need of reality checks. Refusing to move on and happily having a relationship with your dead ex or waiting 10 years for a long lost lover are not only unrealistic and obsessive but dangerously unhealthy! Not all relationships materialize, some need working on, lovers falter and never is it a steady upward graph but that does not make them any less significant or beautiful.
5. SACRIFICING YOUR LOVE WILL ULTIMATELY HELP YOU WIN IT
Often we see a Bollywood flick where a dumb love triangle thrives, particularly among best friends where the hero/ heroine is as desperate to sacrifice their love as Arvind Kejriwal is to expose corruption. By sacrificing your love and by throwing it away without proper logic; is actually how you magically earn it in these movies but not in real life. NO, it is not necessary to desire for a threesome angle every time you think of a great love story. AND NO, SACRIFICING DOES NOT INCREASE YOUR GOOD KARMA COUNT! And you also end up with nothing.
6. HERO ULTIMATELY ALWAYS FALLS FOR THE GOOD HEARTED, SALWAR KAMEEZ CLAD GIRL
You’re every other Bollywood love story features a very rich boy with loads of sexy legged, hot, westernized women falling all over him and thereby categorized as the rotten lot. This Asaram Bapu like saint, however, has no interest in such bad women and has set his heart for the mediocre looking, demure, salwar clad female. She too feels being victimized is the new sexy! Our hero first checks out those sexy legs and all the goodness later. Even peacocks choose their mates based on physical attractiveness.
It’s called BEING HUMAN!
