There are some aspects of life which are always hard to understand. The most common aspect of life is love; Love is the feeling which arose in my heart when I saw my girlfriend for the first time in the opening ceremony of a new hospital in India. I saw her for the first time and my heart flew away to her. That was in December 15th, 2014, and since then we have been together. Now it is almost two years, so we decided to tell our parents about our relationship. In a country like India, people are allowed to love, but not always to marry that person. Generally, a girl’s family has this kind of problem, but in my case it’s my family that has an issue with our marriage because the girl is from a different caste. When my father was alive, he taught my family that love is the soul of a person, not the outer beauty or the caste or culture that the person belongs to. I believe in his words, but now my family is against my decision. They are not accepting our relationship, so we cannot get married. We have been away from each other and our relation is getting stronger day by day. I have learned that when a person is in love with someone, he or she should not care if others are against the relationship.
When I started dating my girlfriend, my first and last thought was getting married to that dream girl. My belief in my love seems to be more powerful than I thought. I have started ignoring people who don’t respect our relation. The power of love can do everything. Now even fairy tales seem real to me. I believe in the power of love and in the story of a person who came back from the doorstep of heaven just because even god could not see his separate and away from his love.
