'Pyaar', one of the most beautiful words in the world.
When someone falls in love, they feel blissful inside out. It's a kind of hangover that never leaves you. When two people fall in love, they not only promise to be forever together, but also cross all the limits and boundaries. But the big question that lies here is, when someone realises that they are in love and the phase which they are considering as a phase of love is also real or not?
Love is not something that believes in letting things go. Instead, it is something that forces you to carry on at the risk of everything. There are three stages of love - 'Pyaar', 'Mohabbat', and 'Ishq'.
This Valentine's Day, WittyFeed brings to you a story that defines all these three stages. Come aboard this flight and let me tell you a classic love tale.
One day, Vijay managed to gather the courage to say what he was trying to speak to his father for a long time now.
Vijay: Dad, main Mukta se pyaar karta hoon. I need your permission to marry her.
Father: Beta, pyaar means what? Pyaar, Mohabbat ya Ishq?
Vijay: Dad, sab ek hi to hai. Nahi?
Father: Nahi, ye teeno ek dum alag hain. Pehle mujhe difference batao, fir main tumhe apna decision bataunga.
After three days, Vijay comes back to his father and shares a story.
Hindustan ke Rajasthan mai ek Rani Hada thi. Unhe apne mahal ke har pakshi se pyaar tha. Toh pyaar wo hai jo kisi ko bhi, kisi se bhi ho sakta hai.
Rani Hada ko Raja Chundawat se Mohabbat thi. Agar uss zamane mai Raja Chundawat ko kidney ki zarurat padhti, toh Rani apni ek kidney Raja ko khushi-khushi de deti. Ye Raja Chundawat ke liye Rani Hada ki Mohabbat thi.
Raja Chundawat ko Rani Hada ki iss kadra chinta thi, ki wo bar bar apne ek sipahi ko mahal bhej dete Rani Hada ka haal puchne. Kayi baar aisa hone par Raani Hada samajh gyi ki Raja ka dhyan poori tarah se yuddha me nahi hai.
Raja ne fir ek sipahi ko haal puchne bheja or kaha Rani Hada ki koi nishani lekar aana. Jab ye baat sipahi ne Rani Hada ko batayi, unhone talwar se apna sir kat kar thaali mai rakhwa diya.
Rajya se Ishq ke liye Rani Hada ke iss balidaan ke baad Raja Chundawat ne Aurangzeb ke Raja ko yuddha mein hara diya.
Father: So, tum Mukta se 'Pyaar', 'Mohabbat' or 'Ishq' me se kya karte ho?
Vijay: Mohabbat! Kyunki agar wo mujhe nahi mili to main uske liye mar nahi jaunga, na wo mere liye.
Vijay and his father both laughed as his father said: "Good, agar tum Ishq kehte toh wo uske liye tumhari deewangi hoti, or hum is ghar mein second class citizen ho jaate. Mukta mujhe manzoor hai."
