This Indian Love is defined differently
Formalities bind not the companions
Crossing over the dark nights to the dawn
Befriending each other till the end of life
It is thy companion who shall be besides you
Whence young ones all grown move on
Thy lover will still share the meals with you
From turning off the lights to ……
Placing the yoghurt in the fridge….
From changing the gas cylinder….
To turning off that flame of the burner…
Sipping together the morning cups of tea
While reading the newspaper……
Collecting the milk in the pan from the milkman….
Or, filling up thy buckets with water….
All tasks appear realistic whence the companion be there
Whether or not thou exchange the greetings…
As formal as wishing a Good morning or Good night
They pray together exchanging spiritual notes
And assist each other in acts of kindness
