Dynamics of love

LOVELY MOMENTS: Parks are the favourite haunts of couples.

GITAM: Can you get through college life without knowing all your classmates names? - Possible. Without listening a single lecture? - Sounds plausible. But untouched by your co collegians love story? - Impossible.

It's neither co curricular nor extra curricular but the love curricular has a lot of impact on the college life. Taking all incidents and observations of college life as inputs I tried to analyse the system of love. Being an engineer I would have been happy if it was like a physical system with few singularities and couple of abnormalities, but it was a social system with lot of dynamic characters and had its influence in every sphere of life, like social, cultural, economical, technological, personality development etc both internally and externally. It is this complexity I wish to present here.

Starting from the definition everything was complex, few called it platonic, others said universal, some were confused between friendship and for few it was time pass.

Coming to the social aspect, love has its greatest impact. The most important is it brings gender equality without any need for the reservation system. Guys who generally fight against seat reservation in college buses readily offer their seats to their loved ones depriving themselves a seat and for girls all the male chauvinism and dominance vanishes and strong will, independence, and boldness become virtues worth adoring. Love also partially solves the problem of eve teasing and girls get dignified titles such as "bhabhi", vadina etc. It also helps in tourism development and city exposure but on the other hand parks lose their social grounds and turn out adulterated only meant for above 18. This even transforms collegians into aliens of their college life.

On the personality development side the change this system brings about is phenomenal. It is a catalyst more dangerous than the nitro booster. It is often said that there is no other greatest feeling on earth than to be felt I am loved. It helps in developing inter and intra personal skills. Guys who generally go tech-fi now say "arts high." The hidden poets spring out and take masters in communication. Love makes them understand their true will power and no hurdles stand in the path of love. Their concentration power shoots up when they brood all night long for the Valentines Day gift and become extremely creative and innovative, thanks to the system we have no piracy in greeting cards. In the hunt to find 101 reasons to love, reasoning in exams like CAT seems to be easier. But this drive will make them lose their reasoning in engineering fundas and lack of expression in answer scripts.

Apart from this we have love phobias and maniacs, love gurus and counsellors, speakers and actors and victims and winners. For few love itself is means and goals, but for few avoiding it is a goal. One thing I realized is no system is completely good or bad unless we perfectly understand it and frame the governing rules. So before accepting or receiving a rose on this Valentines Day, think twice. For few the rose is God's greatest creation but for others it dies within two days. " Understand the dynamics of love".
