*I know u people have read lot of versions of this poem here's mine.I hope the one for whom I have written will understand what I have written...
They were standing in the balcony after their usual fights,once again Suraj had tried to convince her but it was a hopeless job.
As much as they love each other their was no way Nahan would even consider going against,the Law of the society she was born in. The law clearly states
"An untouchable like her must not touch anyone from a higher class".and even though Suraj had brought her to a place far away from her society and family, in a different world She could never forget her roots.
After a long silence the wind finally start breaking
‘Have you heard about the poem of the sun and the earth?’ Nahan asked Suraj.
‘No,’ said Suraj with a seductive grin, corning a little closer to her. ‘But I’d love to hear it’
‘Apparently the earth sometimes thinks of the possibility of coming closer to the sun,’ said Nahan. ‘But she can’t do that. She is so base and his brilliance so searing, that she will cause destruction if she draws him closer.’
‘I disagree,’ said Suraj. ‘I think the sun burns only as long as the earth is close to him. If the earth wasn’t there, there would be no reason for the sun to exist.’
‘The sun doesn’t exist just for the earth. It exists for every single planet in the solar
‘Isn’t it really the sun’s choice for whom he chooses to exist?’
‘No,’ said Nahan, looking at Suraj, melancholic. ‘The moment he became the sun, his calling became higher. He does not exist for himself. He exists for the greater good of everyone. His luminosity is the lifeblood of the solar system. And if the earth has any sense of responsibility, she will not do anything to destroy this balance.’
‘So what should the sun do?’ asked Suraj, his hurt and anger showing on his face. ‘Just waste his entire life burning away? Looking at the earth from a distance?’
‘The earth isn’t going away anywhere. The sun and the earth can still share a warm
friendship. But anything more is against the laws. It is against the interests of others.’
Suraj turned away from Nahan in anger. Feeling nothing, he looked up at the skies, towards the gods he did not believe in.
(Dammit! I love you it's that simple and that complicated )
He banged the balcony railing with his powerful fist, dislodging some bricks and stormed off.
