This is not a love story.
It is about two individuals at different phases of their lives; whose paths keep crossing and yet who keep walking away.
It is about two gazes that meet, two minds that are attuned to the same wavelength and two hearts that beat in time.
And yet this is not a love story.
It is about two clashing personalities that always agree to disagree; who abide by the motto ‘Live and let live’.
It is about pangs of loneliness felt when without each other and yet an innate stubbornness to keep this feeling within; of leaving each other in constant doubt.
And yet it is not a love story.
It traces the lives of two friends who have never seen eye to eye, their height difference responsible for it; who have never understood each other completely, their age difference the only answer.
But it is also about the will to try, the readiness to go the extra mile and the heartfelt happiness gifted to each other.
And yet it cannot be a love story.
It is about the obstacle called Society; the hurdle named Distance; the constant thorns in the form of individual life choices.
And through it all…the comfort found with each other, the tenderness exchanged even through text messages, the lingering smiles thereon…..the feeling of having finally come home.
I wonder why I still insist, this is not a love story…?
