to be in love....

Eros, the invincible in battle,
neither can any immortal escape
you, nor any man whose life lasts for a day.
(sophocles, antigone 1781 ff.)

the heart skipped a beat with that adorable smile and life felt lively once again. there was something to wait for everyday, there was something to look forward to, life once again was beautiful. though, in my heart i always knew it would last just for a while, but what span of time matters more than that one moment which you are having right now?
love, trust me, is one of the most unpredictable thing to happen. ( reminds of a very filmy but at the same time very true dialouge, "maut aur mohabbat kisi se puch ke nahi aati"...i.e. death and love don't ask for any permission ) so, the thing called love can take possess you at any moment, and you can feel like a teenager bubling with excitement and naivity even at 50. luckily i'm not 50 yet, few years past my teenage and sometimes can still manage to look a lot like that particular age group... :)
so, music is in the air, and so is love, a smile on my face without any reason for it, and palipations at so many akward moments. stupid it might sound and feel at times, but gives a warm happy feeling, very childish though, but anyway what good does the 'certificate of maturity' given by others do? nothing but pushing us more towards a vaccum world where every step we take is to be calculated, every word we utter is thought over thousands of time before it completes the journey from our limbic system to our vocal apparatus. so, for this very moment let me be out of that practical world, let me be out of mind too, and without giving too much of thought about it, let me enjoy the present moment and let me savour the beauty of that smile.
sometimes it's absolutely fine and correct to be a little reckless, be a little selfish (or rather say, do what you truly want to do..... ) and sometimes it's also fine to be in love !!!
