Love…

June 10, 2008

Author : Teky

Kannan and seetha were studied in same college. Kannan loved seetha and proposed to her some day. But seetha didn’t accept his love and told some family problem as reason. At the end of their college life kannan approached her again. At that time she accepted, she can’t hide her love and she worried for her parents problem

The problem is seetha’s elder sister also love marriage. Seetha’s parents accepted their elder daughter love after a long struggle and conducted it without any interest. Their parents are still worrying for their elder daughter’s love even though the guy is of their caste. So seetha was worried what their parents will do when they came to know about their love(kannan is not seetha’s caste). Kannan said to her that not to worry and he told that he will talk to his parents and bring them to her house to talk with seetha’s parents then everything will be solved.

Then seetha said okay and they started loving more and more. Months rolled, seetha’s parents talked to her about a guy for her marriage. She doesn’t know what to do… She decided to tell about her love to her sister in order to help her. But her sister shocked and asked her to stop loving kannan. Her sister called kannan and talked about her family situation. Kannan tried to convince her that the problem is solvable. But her sister told that if their parents came to know about this they will die. They were already feeling since their first daughter marriage. If they came to know that another daughter did the same thing either her mother or father or both will die. This is what seetha’s sister told to kannan. She also added that as kannan was not their caste so it’s never possible.

Kannan is very soft hearted guy. He doesn’t want to trouble seetha’s parents because of him. He talked with seetha, both talked and decided to sacrifice their love for her parents. Seetha couldn’t tolerate this. But there is no other way. Kannan convinced her… Both of them felt guilty on each other. Seetha cried until the end of the discussion with kannan. Both of them cried more. They are pushed to sacrifice their love. Their love came to end.

All this happened because of the stupid caste they are considering. Whether the decision made by kannan was correct? Is this all happened due to society? Or the seetha’s parents?

When will this caste get out of our society? Don’t we have any solution to make this happen….

    @Vishesh
    yep… our generation should not make the same mistake…..

    i think the prob has been wiped out of our society to large extent…now inter -caste n inter -religion marriages are very common in here atleast in my family 😀

    @vishesh
    “it won’t go anyway until we are able too see each other as brothers’..wt abt sisters 😕
    actually if we see the world as our family..no problems will exist 🙂

    Its very deep rooted in the previous generation. We should not do the same mistakes when we grow up.

    @rekha: by saying brother it includes sisters…actually i was about to type brethren,but donno what my fingers did 🙂 lol…

    @Rekha
    Even some people accepted that there were still people who were afraid for society and not accepting. You have a gr8 family people 🙂

    @Amit

    Its not the caste or society. When they are able to walk together in love, why not marriage? Its their fear within them which makes easy to blame others. They have the fear of “what if” which ponders any human being coz “sacrifice” is the word often used inside the family.

    Wat u say V?

    @pria
    Are u blaming the parents or kannan & seetha?

    If kannan & seetha is wrong.. do u think that fearing for the ill or death in seetha’s family is no need for kannan? He shouldn’t cared about anyone apart from seetha in their family?

    Sita’s parents should have been more open-minded. It’s worng to let kannan’s caste come in the way of their daughter’s happiness….however, Sita obviously doesn’t want 2 see her parents upset or worse, dead. That’s fair enough….Sita’s sis should have been more supportive….having had a love marriage herself….

    @kaddhu

    What u said is correct. But seetha’s parents doesn’t know anything about her love. Seetha too thought that her sister will be supportive. But as she made her parents feel worse and depressed, she doesn’t want it to happen again by seetha…

    There is only one answer to your questions!! Time!!!

    Time will change all the things.
    The new generation, like us is getting out of old mindset and beliefs. So slowly things will improve.

    Talking about Seetha’s parents, we should not blame them for their beliefs. Look at our own parents, they inherited and learned some aspects, manners and traditions from their parents. We can not just say that they should change themselves. Its time for changing ourselves. And we are doing it.

    As to problem of Kanan and Seetha, I honestly see no way round. And I am unable to think any solution for them.

    I meant *castes* in above comment at place of *old mindset and beliefs*

    In the past 3 months i have attended 4 weddings and all have been inter-caste marriages.

    All i can say is its the urban India(not all of) which has accepted the change to an extent.The rural India is still bound by issues like castism and superstitions.Time may be the best medicine in this case.

    Teky,

    I blame only the 2 souls who have grown in love. U never inform ur parents that u like someone. People are not prectical to sit down n talk to their children u know. Its better they do.

    I cannot accept the fact how old people act/ drama with others feelings just for the cause of themselves.

    I used the term what if/ sacrifice becoz every Indian, at the back of his or her mind become emotional when they go back to how their parents so on…. u know. U have to move on if u wanna survive.

    If they sacrifice their love, don’t u think they are hurting two other hearts or people in this world who have no clue when they get married to these. Their life can still be tuff to handle emotional and in harsh words.

    I think Seetha should not give up without once talking to her parents. If they dont agree then follow what they are saying but atleast the regret wont be there that what if they had agreed. I believe in trying even if one doesnt succeed. And if the elder sister is happy then I think her parents may agree. Of course the letting know and talking should be done so that there is time for them to think it over…not like 2 months later marriage is there (arranged one) and now one is telling his/her parents.

    P.S. The story could use serious proof reading…will be good for the whole blog and readers who chance upon it.

    This is just one of the cases that happens everyday in a typical Indian household. It all has to do with the narrow minded approach that people take when deciding the fate of their children. I’m not blaming the parents entirely. They love their children too; that’s the reason they sometimes take ‘wrong’ decisions.

    Indian families are intricately connected. Parents have a lot of attachments towards their children, unlike the western families.

    All I can say is: They are YOUR parents. If YOU can’t convince them about your love, no one can. Know one thing, if you have been a responsible son/daughter, they are bound to respect your decisions/wishes.

    Having said that, I do know many other parents who stand like a rock without even listening to their children’s pleas. In the end, its up to YOU.

    well Love can only defeat love n if they love their parents soo much n if their parents also do..then caste is no bar for anyone 🙂 I believe 🙂

    @Suda:
    mmm.. Let the time do something

    @wasshappening:
    may be…

    @pria & Reema
    They have no way.. Seetha is worrying that something serious could happen to her father and mother if she say that she’s in love. Kannan don’t want to create any trouble in seetha’s family because of him…

    But your idea seems somewhat work but, risky…

  19. June 11, 2008 10:14 pm

    @Manoj Sterex
    Seetha can convince if there weren’t any problem in her sister marriage… Seetha’s father still didn’t accepted her elder daughter’s marriage fully…

    @Rekha:
    There were still people who are seeing love as a crime…..

  20. June 13, 2008 12:31 pm

    I think we should change it. we should uproot the caste system from this generation. Like for eg, if our children wants to get married to someone of their choice. LET THEM.

    In present scenario, I dont think Kannan and Seetha are doing the right thing. The ‘I will die’ statement is given by parents who are unrealistic and pushy, they want things to be done by keeping love on ransom. The thing is that, their children fall for this, coz they love their parents. I guess if the parents loved them back (other than thinking on how the society is gonna think about them) the same way, they wont bargain on love.
