Badlate Rishte

It is fascinating for me how relationships get evolved from no where. Some of these are formed by a chance meeting or mere acquaintance and they stay forever. I think success of their longevity is the mutual awareness and acceptance of the boundaries that such relationship possess. On the contrary, most structured and formal relationships wither or break away after much of a fan fare. The reason perhaps lie in refusal to accept that there could exist boundaries in such a relationship.

Robert Frost poem on 'Looking up by chance' , Deepak Chopra's theory of ' connection at cellular level' and song written by Anand Bakshi ‘ Yeh Duniya ke Badalte Rishte’ make me realize the complex maze of human relationships that can be as fickle as a 'bubble' and as durable as steel threads. I liked the corollary of celestial objects in the poem of Frost to meeting people from nowhere.

You'll wait a long, long time for anything much
To happen in heaven beyond the floats of cloud
The sun and moon get crossed, but they never touch,
Nor strike out fire from each other nor crash out loud.
The planets seem to interfere in their curves --
But nothing ever happens, no harm is done.
We may as well go patiently on with our life,
And look elsewhere than to stars and moon and sun

I had attended Deepak Chopra's lecture at Talkatora stadium, New Delhi. He had mentioned all of us at one stage of other are linked at cellular level. Breathing is one activity that is connected with every cell and every breath that we inhale or exhale carries part of cellular content. So at the cellular level, people are related. Do people get connected if they happened to at some place and breathed together ? A wild but intriguing thought.

I think the best chance for any relationship to survive is if they are formed through a camaraderie achieved from childhood days or playing together in a club or serving in one battalion. In this scenario, there are no expectations and willingness to accept and adopt to changing boundaries.
