Knew this boy and girl since 7 years as friends.They have been a couple ever since(yeah! since school days 🙂 ). The girl’s dad came to know recently,tried to get her married off solely because the guy’s of a different caste ! The girl tried her best to convince her dad , but in the end failed , both to covince daddy dearest(who allegedly beat her up and threw her in a dark room regularly) and forget the boy! So she took her own life 😦 [This happened yesterday] .The guy (who supposedly is a topper from IIT-kanpur) is demolished !
I have nothing more to say ! Is love worth life itself ? Is a social barrier worth happiness ? Is prestige in a caste-based community worth more than a daughter’s heart ? Blaah … why should I even care about these questions ? A friend’s no more and I dont care anymore about the answers …
Quote of the day :
All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than animals that know nothing. ~Maurice Maeterlinck
Verse of the day :
Gaily I lived as ease and nature taught,
And spent my little life without a thought,
And am amazed that Death, that tyrant grim,
Should think of me, who never thought of him.
~René Francois Regnier
