A Typical Indian love story

A Typical Indian love story

Raj was looking outside when he saw a girl coming to class with peon. A moment later she came inside the class. The peon gave a note to teacher and left the class. It was obvious that that was a new girl transferred from other city. Teacher read the note and told the class this girl was Tanu. She came from Gandhi Nagar. She came and sits with other girls.

Raj was intelligent and very naughty. In his class his math teacher was very strict. He was also very intelligent. He got a new formula for punishment. When somebody do mischief he asked him to do some math problem in front of class, if he is not able then he was to be punished. Raj was caught almost every day, but when his teacher asked to do some problem he always do. So he was not punished. Tanu asked math notes from him. Which he was ready to give after all a girl asked. So this was the first talk with Tanu. Next day she asked about some points which was not clear as Raj’s writing was the one which only he can read properly. Then on daily basis they talk on his notes. But how much time this will continue? Soon notes were noted by Tanu fully. There talking session were over on notes, but now they were on other issues like on students, teachers, policies… policies?? Wait policies mean student’s policies against teachers and school.

So this is how their love story started. Soon they joined college, took same subject. College environment was different. Here nobody sees a girl and boy relation well. Any relation is only love or flirt for people. Their name became famous in college as ‘Laila-Majnu’. Both were agree with this. Boys were teasing Raj with Tanu’s name and girls were teasing to Tanu with Raj’s name. But still they didn’t lose hope and keep maintain their love story going well.

Now if there is a love story then a villain is must in Indian love story. So our villain came as Sagar. He was their classmate. He was Raj’s friend also. He started to talk to Tanu, only in casual way. Tanu talked to him because he was Raj’s friend. This was only a casual talk but Raj’s friends show him red signal. He became unsecure. He tried to tell Tanu not to talk to Sagar. But Tanu was educated girl and she thought he is mature enough to understand difference between love and friendship. So he was not able to tell her simply. He tried to tell her with example of others. I don’t know Tanu understood or not but she didn’t stop talk to Sagar. This was making Raj very uncomfortable. He became irritated person. Every time Tanu talks to him he shows her anger. Tanu was unhappy, but she was a typical Indian girl. Once she decided to marry him, she assumes him as her husband and in India husband is equal to God. She was not complaining to him but feeling unsecure that perhaps Raj has found another girl. She stopped giving time to Sagar or anybody else. She was more concerned with Raj now. She started more call to Raj what else she could do?

Tanu was disparate and Sagar knew this so as a typical villain he tried to show his sympathy. Slowly he was Turning Tanu against Raj. Tanu was feeling comfort in Sagar’s company but it was not like she loved him. She liked him only because he was showing like he understands her and she needed someone to talk about her situation. I never understand this behavior of girls they knew boys are same and if someone is very sympathetic its mean danger. But anyway, the situation was like this Raj and Tanu loves each other but a quarrel was there because Raj was not able to tell her to keep distance from Sagar. This was making Tanu to talk more to Sagar about her situation because she was thinking that Sagar is Raj’s friend and he can help her to convince Raj.  She needed some exam farms for some computer course. She asked Raj but he ignored. Sagar got a chance he purchased two forms, one for Tanu and one for him. Obviously, he didn’t get money for the form. Tanu filled the form and told Raj for that. But Raj didn’t like the idea so she rejected to join the course. But Sagar had submitted his fees because Tanu was ready to join the course. But now all charges of his course were in water because he didn’t want to join the course. But he was happy as Tanu showed that she is truly sorry for this. For him Tanu was coming near to him. When Tanu needed him, he was there for help her purchase book for her, sometime drop her to near her street (he was not allowed to drop her near her home, what her neighbor would say?) and some other routine works.

One day after class Tanu didn’t go to common room. She stopped in the empty class and start weeping. Sagar came in search of her and saw her weeping. It was a golden chance to him. He came near to her and starts giving her emotional support. Here, Raj was also waiting for Tanu to come out from class, when he saw that Tanu is not among other girls he came to class. He reached when Sagar was in emotional touch with Tanu. His hand was on Tanu’s back and he told her that he loved her and will keep her happy. Raj became furious, he shouted at Tanu that this is the reason she is not love him anymore. Tanu was shocked she also shouted but she was crying also so words were not clear. It were like I… Love……U……not…….understand…Sagar……..friend….Die.

Sagar started to fight to Raj to show Tanu that he can protect her. But Tanu herself came between and told Sagar to go as she loves Raj. Sagar was surprised, he was sure that Tanu loves him now but Tanu cleared that he was only a friend. So Sagar went empty hands. Raj was not happy his man ego was satisfied. Now again both were happy with each other with no Sagar in their life.

Graduation was completed. Tanu’s parents started to find a groom for her. They found a government employee for her. She told her mother that she loves Raj but then another major problem came. Raj’s full name was Raj Gupta and Tanu’s full name was Tanu Mehra. They were both from different caste and in India caste is most important thing for marriage. Other factors are very small like boy is not earning well, he is unemployed, he is still studying etc.

So Tanu was married to that government employee and she has two children now. Raj is doing his professional course after completing post graduation. After this he is sure that he will get a job then his parents will find a beautiful bride for him.

    what u said is absolutely right sir. In major, love stories has end like this. If they want to show their love and marry each other, they have to sacrifice their parents. Well explanation Sir..

    all says that a person should think before falling in love but it is impossible to think some times. love just happens..and this happening sometimes gives you lots of pain. you have everything when your love is with you but after loosing him your hands are empty and a deep loneliness inside. If you have not capacity to think logically, it is better that you do not love anyone….
