Relations .....

This post is for Write Tribe's Festival of Words....Day 3 " Free Write "

So , where did it start ? In the classroom , in the college bus , in the workplace or in a festival . Don’t  remember  where .
But it started somewhere. When we bumped into each other . Accidentally stumbled upon .Was it predestined or a mere coincidence . Don’t even know that .

What happened there on… wasn’t just a coincidence rather honest efforts. Not one way but both .
The first time we met ,you remember …absolute strangers we were . One of us threw a reluctant smile . One of us stretched that hand first .
Then it slowly grew . Over moments ,over days, over months ,over years .  And today here we are…Together .

Sometimes they ask me “Who you are ? Why am I so close to you ? “ “Why Did I choose you , when there were much better and more deserving people around . Sometime even you ask me the same .
I get drowned in confusion . Not because I don’t have an answer . But because I don’t have an absolute answer .
I have always felt , there can’t be any absolute reasons for liking someone , for being with someone ,for getting along with someone . 
What do you think...can there be any ?

Sometimes they ask  “ What relation I have with you ? “
Again I get perplexed . Not because I don’t have an answer for them . But because I don’t have with myself.
In which relation shall I tie you up with . Are you my brother , my sister , my colleague , my senior , my mentor or just a friend .

If I give this thing between you and me a name… I feel …I confine your role to just one.  What about all other roles you played . Can I deny that .
Being protective like a father , caring like a mom ,irritating like a brother ,sharing like a sibling , guiding like a teacher , confining like a friend and loving like a beloved .
So , how can I limit in just one .

Sometimes they ask “ What am I gaining with you ? “ Name ,fame , prestige ,wealth …What ? “
“ What is that pulls me to you ? “
I can’t answer that . Not because I don’t have one . But because I don’t know which one to mention .        I know they  won’t  get satisfied with my reply . They have never been .

But , today… I want to ask .

Why do we get along with someone ? Why do we choose them ? Why do we scribble just one person’s name in our school notebook as our best friend ? Why do we like to call someone whenever we find time ? Why do we remember only that someone when we are in trouble ? Why his/her face flashes in our mind when something special happens to us ?...good or bad . Why that lone voice gives us peace ?

And why does that make us feel we aren’t  alone  . Someone’s out there to hold us if we fall back  .

They say what are the Gains … Are these business deals / partnerships for a big venture where we need to take calculated moves ….  Analyze  profits and losses .  

No , these are Human Relations .
Unbounded by the confines of our lives . Pure and free flowing just like a stream .
Crossing every boundary to join the Divine Sea .
