    "you don't choose love. Love chooses you"  in concrete words....I have been contemplating on these thoughts...but couldn't reach the conclusion...you saved me years of mental hard work...thanks..once again.

    love is something you give and not something you seek .... we as a youth ought to absorb in the essence of this thought  ... specially those who "propose" a pretty gal...to seek her approval to start loving her... love is something..dat outflows on its own.....wen u see a kid smiling on getting a new toy... young couple holding hands..walking the lanes of their dreams... you don't need sumone approve of your love....

    tolstoy wrote to Gandhiji once " love is the founding principle of all the religion"... but later on it loses its significance, as dust start piling on it .... Ego, hatred, voilence.....corruption..weakness.
