Star-crossed Lovers…

“My only love sprung from my only hate!

Too early seen unknown, and known too late!

Prodigious birth of love it is to me

That I must love a loathed enemy.”

Romeo And Juliet Act 1, scene 5, 134–141

(Excerpt from an idea in the making!!!)

…How do you know on a Monday morning when you get up and sleepily head to the bathroom that today is the day when you will meet your destiny? It’s simple. You don’t! You go about your morning unknowingly, with the exact same unconscious, automatic movements that you have made on uncountable other mornings as well. You brush your teeth the exact same way. You comb your hair, make coffee, and run after the bus just as you always have, oblivious to the fact that in 48 minutes and 32 seconds life as you’ve known it will cease to exist. You are still blissfully unaware that in 48 minutes and now only 25 seconds your life will never be the same again, because you will meet HIM…

Locks of Love

These Locks of Love were fixed on the railing of one of the many bridges over the hundreds of canals in Venice near the Rialto Bridge. These padlocks are fixed by couples in love, on to a fence or a pole or metallic chain/string at a usually romantic and popular public place, to symbolize their eternal love. A couple would hang a padlock after inscribing their name or initials on it and throw the key away so that their love is locked forever. Some couple use two inter-twined locks, each lock bearing their name/initials. Besides lovers, often family members and close friends also put such locks at these places, to lock their relationship forever. The tradition probably originated from China where the love locks can be seen at several locations alongside the Great Wall of China and also in many temples and on the steps/paths leading to sacred peaks. Locks of love… Connected to each other for all eternity…
