FOREWORD: Original idea by the legen …wait for it …. dary Rahul Ajmani, Place Rep 2007-08, Commander in chief of NH in World War 2007 , Stud Farmer 2007-09, and friend .The analysis below Caters by default to the Indian context unless specified.
DISCLAIMER: But as expected 😉 , the illustrations, the depictions and the panga-taking quotient of the post is entirely my responsibility.Feel free to express your solidarity of opinion in kicking my a** 😛 in case you think this is offensive
Type 1 : Saccha pyaar / true love
No! Don’t equate it to the romantic version of “true love” you see in movies.
Gist: This is a more realistic concept ..about the truth of life . And that is lust, money, etc.,
For the boys: Well!! From a boy’s perspective , saccha pyaar = lust/attraction
For the girls: And of course from a girl’s perspective saccha pyaar = paisa-earning potential !!!
Trivia: The western world is immensely well reputed for touching the first level and breaking the relationship! Esp the british!
Type 2: Senti pyaar
Gist: The name says it all. You dont walk out of her within 30min of making out
For the boys: The emotional guinea pigs! They are always victims of this one,esp. when it comes to first love.
For the girls: Generally assumed to be the masters of this one.
Trivia: The ladies fall into this faster than the boys and get out of it faster than the boys. And justify it all by saying “Life goes on… you can commit suicide if you want … but my baap will get me a rich NRI”
Type 3: Shaadi pyaar/ Wedlock level love
Gist: Extrapolation of type 2. They crave for each other enough to get married.
For the boys: A boy generally sticks to type 1. But if he goes onto type 2, he will almost definitely go onto type 3.
For the girls: A girl who hangs on through type 1 will probably go onto type 2. When it comes to promotion to type 3,unless the girl is an angel, there is most of the times a clash either due to:
- Boy never graduated from type 1
- Girl is a bitch! (a highly biased example: My ex-gf!! )
Trivia: Instances of either the guy turning heel (WWE lingo !) or going on a rampage of rebounds are prevalent due to this. But if this type works, we do have a happily ever after scenario!
Type 4: Ultimate pyaar/ Untimely love
Gist: It lasts beyond time. Even after a split/ death, it is remembered as the only significant essence of life.Many wish it was true! But even in our holy scriptures, Lord Rama (the Hindu God) had it for his wife Sita,but failed to live upto it 😦 .
For the boys: Boys who even reach type2 fantasize about their love being type 4
For the girls: They are incapable of it.
Trivia: Unfortunately, A survey taken from among 100 men [35 in type 3 , and 8 already married] confirmed with a 100/100 perfect score that the funda about girls and type 4 is true 😦
