The Thing called Love....

PDAs disgust me and an overdose of mushiness makes me wanna throw up. Rounds of light hearted banter, loads of teasing and listening to the same stories a million times later , realization dawns..

Love makes people do weird things.......

I stood in the overcrowded bus waiting for someone to offer me a seat. Two love birds sat on the seat in front of me coochie cooing away to glory. Suddenly the girl sneezed. Rescued her hand out of her boyfriend's clutches, wiped the snot off her face and thrust the hand back into her boyfriend's hand. I managed to stifle a laugh when realization dawned...

Love makes me (and definitely the people in love ) sick...

Surrounded by friends who cry at movies, I pride myself in the fact that I dont lose control over my emotions that easily. Bored out of my mind with nothing productive to do, I bought my first romantic novel 'PS. I love you', and cried through the whole book, when realization dawned..

Love makes my heart melt....

I listened unbelievingly when they spoke of how love made their world go round. I tutted disapprovingly, when they tried to steal secret glances at the object of their affection, wondering why they had to behave like lunatics. Then Chimpu walked into my life and realization dawned...

Love makes me go weak in my knees....

I watched as you fought with him and called him names. And I watched as you made up. I listened to you calling him Chikdipie and he calling you Chikdipoo. I watched as he called your HUGE behind small and as you called his cigarette smoke stained smile intoxicating. I watched as you laughed at his sad jokes and realization dawned....

Love makes people in love go blind but the people around them see things clearly :P

My friend called me all excited at 2 in the morning. He asked me out...he asked me out, she yelled.
Duh, when a guy calls you at 11 every night and talks to you about nothing at all till the wee hours of the morning, it is very very evident that he likes you and might ask you out. But is it worth spoiling my beauty sleep? I think not.

But yes, as a understanding and supportive friend I heard her jibber jabber for an hour before realization

Love makes me sleepy.... :P

P.S: Chimpu is a product of my imagination...just like everything else on this blog....this note is addressed to everyone who wants to know who Chimpu is...


Ria said...

interesting realisations on love i must say... :)

Harini said...

I am hopeless when it comes to love. It does make my world go round. I am someone who gets all mushy but doesnt show it much :P.

Riddhiculuos said...

hahah,.. many realisations. many realities.

1. Loves makes people do weird things.......

Agreed. weird super duper weird things sweetheart. like when they talk about pagalpan and all that i dont think love is made for ppl like u and me. because pagals like us can be dangerous or fatal for the other half. after all overdose will lead to .. gawwd knows what.

Love makes me (and definitely the people in love ) sick...

Sick of being alone.. what we often consider as dependency and being bound upon someone. that basically becomes a neccessity. u dont feel that u have to be accountable to someone. but u start feeling that some on there exists, cares, stays... u aint alone in this whole wide world. ofcourse u have parents and friends. but then u need some one to bitch about them :P

Love makes my heart melt....

aah yep or should u say "love makes my heart say awwwwwww" :P

Love makes me go weak in my knees....
oooh this used to be favourite expression of one of my weird friends. who had an overdose of mills and boons novels. i could never finish one though. i fell asleep when i started reading it. and i found the pages really unnecessarily to graphic, easily flipped away the pages that she said had the action. :P

Love makes people in love go blind but the people around them see things clearly :P

Again true, i remember there was this girl in my class dating a guy who was like chhichhora, he got a 0 in chemistry in 11th standard. then dropped out of his school and his nick name was 'kacchi as in undies'

and when ever i tried to talk her into leaving such a bright prospect.she would say shut up he is so right for me. (like he was not even good looking with his pimply face and medium height)

Lord it made me sick, made me feel weird, and all that at the same time. The girl now is happily marreid to some other guy though.

Love makes me sleepy.... :P

This i agree. totally.. especially some one else's bak bak about love makes me sleepy.. sleepier... and i think the songs about 'mujhe neend na aaye and all..' they are all jhooth. i have experienced. when m happy i sleep even more than usual. :)

Lastly, Mushiness, holding hands, calling every morning to say good morning good night... blah blah blah.. PDAs i still detest..
but when love dawned on me.. which it finally has- i realised love makes u do stupid things what u will hate otherwise.
I love this quote I read somwhere-

"Anyone can be passionate in love, but it takes real lovers to be silly"

Lauuuuve guru maai riddhi 10008

Nikita said...

chikdipie and chikdipoo?? even i, the queen of romance, cannot digest that. :P
interesting post :D

Arv said...

and that folks, is Love!!!!!


COMMUNI said...

I wonder how these people talk with such low voice over phone. You can't hear a single word even if you stand very next to them.

Arslan said...

Didn't get who Chimpu is.

But Chikdipie & chikdipoo?! Please tell me you didn't actually hear someone say that!

NIM said...

Chikdipie & Chikdipoo are the cutest nick names! But must be avoided in public :p
Love is something you can't really describe...that's because to the people involved in it, its the best feeling ever and to the onlookers its exactly what u describe it in this post... :)
'PS I Love You' is just unreal...everyone cries while reading..normal human reaction..

"Love makes people in love go blind but the people around them see things clearly :P"- the best quote of this post

The Survivor said...

Beautifully weaved into words

Thousif Raza said...

that was one suppperrrrr post girl.... loved it... the sneeze wala episode... sick

thank you for showing me a the'other' side of love ;)

take care and keep writing.........

Miss Sunshine said...

that was cute. :D and kinda correct. and hell yes, love makes you sleepy. it does. :D

blunt edges said...

i read your post in 2mins (or maybe less)...n took 5mins (or maybe more) 2 read riddhi's! ;)

1. Love makes people do weird things
if it ain't wierd, it ain't love! (pretty cool line na?) :D

2. Love makes me (and definitely the people in love) sick
lol...i wonder how the boyfriend reacted then...if it was a budding relationship, in all probability, he would have stifled his "ewwww" reaction.
if it was a tried n tested ghisa-pita relationship, he would have shouted "ewwww" (and maybe something more) right into her ear!

3. Love makes my heart melt
yeah u are a girl! :P

4. Love makes me go weak in my knees
yeah u are still a girl! :P

5. Love makes people in love go blind but the people around them see things clearly
lol...the line of the day...i think i might quote u somewhere ;)

6. Love makes me sleepy
the best part of ending things with my ex was 2 not having 2 compromise on my sleep anymore! :D

i wanted 2 write a comment longer than Lauuuuve guru maai riddhi 10008 (what's 10008 btw?), but then i realized that it's like me wishing 2 break sachin's record of most test centuries! IMPOSSIBLE!

Shanu said...

I am glad you found love sweety and I am sure that the object of ur affection is a very lucky guy.

Bhagwan tumhari jodi banayi rakhe..dudho nahao ..phulo phalo!!

Shanu said...

@ Nikita

Shanu said...

@ Arv

Yes, it sure is :)

Shanu said...

@ Communi

Shanu said...

@ Arslan

Chimpu is wat i call my Chikdipoo :)

Kya yaar, i think chikdipoo and chikdipie are cute nick names..try it..i m sure she will like it :)

Shanu said...

Shanu said...

Shanu said...

@ Bluntu

5)You can quote me but u have to pay me royalty :P

6)Ex?? u have an ex?? And u didnt tell me!! U dhokebaaz!!

Lol...yes Riddhi jaisa talent sabke paas nahi hota :)

Riddhiculuos said...

@shanu- hehehe itna lamba jaise ... amitabh bacchan.. dhat.. jaise kutub minaar...
good good u like it.. and 'object' of my affection is lucky and doomed because of my incessant talking. sooo poor guy for him He desperately wishes 'love was dumb or deaf.' :P

@ Bluntu- 1008 is like all those babas they put - baba ant shant nath 1008.. so thats why m love gurumaa 1008. call love line 1234567 and whisper 'I am in lauuuuuu'. if your lauuuu has depth i will take the call.

The Idiot Blogs said...

Oh Shanu... vintage post... and I just realised that I love you...

That must make me weird and sick :(

I mean... I might...

1) Get a heart attack
2) Go weak-kneed (arthritis or gout)
3) Blind
4) Comatose (sleepy)


moonlite:D said...

hey Shanu,, u rock!!
agree or disagree is different,,
but the rattling in wee hrs by a friend over nothing - sure to put anyone to sleep :D

blunt edges said...

@ Shanu
ex? did i say ex? woh kya hai na typo ho gaya...i meant the best part of breaking up with someone would be not having 2 compromise on sleep anymore...arre agar breakup hoga toh ex hi hogi na! :D

@ Riddhi
i did call 1234567 and said "lauuuuuu"...the voice at the other end said "ke do rang ke gaane ko apna caller tune banana hai toh ek dabaye"...yeh kya chamatkar hai gurumaa? :o

Sid said...

Hey u forgot 1... Love makes u blog 2 :P

btw love makes u time in-sensitive 2. I happen 2 work arnd a park and at night when the park is closed and m driving home, i can still see ppl busy at the gates :)

Riddhiculuos said...

@Bluntu- I knew you will call. :D But kya re, your lauuuu did not have depth, our computer system is very radio sensitive and these days all radios are connected to cell phones. Toh when we find the not so depth wala pyar we transfer the calls to those ring tones. sahi hai na..
next time don't try from the same number on the same umber. considering it such a risky profession -heart breaks and all.. - I have to change number almost everyday..
phew.. such a responsibility on my shoulders..

Shanu said...

@ Sid

Yup, thatz a good one too...Too many idiots in love make me wanna blog out the frustu :P

Shanu said...

@ Riddhi Ma Devi

Wah devi wah..wat an idea riddhiji.

Bluntu ke love main depth hoga bhi kaise..kabhi HC, kabhi babe at the bar, kabhi Shanu..ufff aaj kal ke ladke!!

Shanu said...

@ Idiot

Ohh my dear Idiot..I felt the same way when I saw ur Hrithik Roshan chin. You are super cute, yes u are.

But I am hopelessly in love with Chimpu with Bluntu coming in a close second. But yes, the day I feel the need for a third option..u are the one i shall choose :)

And falling in love does not make u weird and sick. It just makes u an idiot..which u already are. So go ahead..fall in love..u have nuthing to lose :)

Shanu said...

@ Moonlite

I am so glad u like the post :)

Yes, the rattling in wee hours is the worst thing ever....!!

Shanu said...

@ Bluntu

Although I kno u are making me ullu, I am ready to overlook the fact that u had an ex. Hai na mera pyaar mahaan :)

Scattered Thoughts... said...

I am realizing that instead of reading the post first, I should jump to comments section directly. This is all the more fun with few sub-posts thrown in here and there.. one sadistic love story (yours and bluntu) and what not :D

You cried through romantic novel? Well, who buys romantic novel in first place, I mean WHO? and then crying? Urgggh.. But then I am the last person on this earth to comment on love and romance.. so let us forget it.

BTW, you should meet my wifey someday.. you two are going to have so much in common :D

You know how I feel about PDA, dont you?

blunt edges said...

nahi bana raha main tujhe ullu,
aakhir main hu tera bluntu!
bas the wo purane kuch kisse,
jo nahi hai ab mere dil ke hisse.
ab toh mere dil-dimaag me hai bas tu hi tu,
after all what's bluntu without his shanu?

I think i have some suggesttions which are useful such as : You can overcome all problems if you try to be patient, sensible and sincere with each other. At first you should calm down and assess the situation. Remind your first date, wedding, moments you were happy together and try to write down all things and features that you like and dislike into your partner. Don’t lie to yourself; this list is only for you, so you should be honest with yourself. Try to find main reasons why you want to save your marriage and what caused problems into your family life. It’s rather difficult task to save your marriage, so you should be ready to hard work.

how to get your ex back

@ Bluntu

Janti hoon main tu nahi dhokebaaz,
Tu toh hai mera Heman, tu toh hai jaanbaaz,
But wat to do, sweetheart hoon na main teri,
Ban jaati hoon kabhi kabhi possesi possessive ve, yehi mushkil hai meri,
Chal, nahi karti main phir tere ex ki baat,
Apna toh hai 7 blogs ka saath!!

Truly loved your post, especially the last one..Love can make you blind..... :)

Yup, love makes the ones in love blind :)
