Relationships beyond Love

One of the blessings we cherish in life, is about having those relationships that add meaning to our lives. Those relationships that go beyond the conventional definition of love.

We treat people as friends. Sometimes it is beyond just friendship when we fall in love with them, and then there is a special kind of relationship that is more than friends and less than a sizzling love chemistry. It takes years to build such relationships that thrive on mutual support and understanding, and after a certain point emerge as life support systems. They are there for you, no matter what and when. Isn’t that comforting to know?

One such classic example is the relationship between Rahul (Imran Khan) and Riana (Kareena Kapoor) from ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’. Rahul and Riana meet at a psychologist’s office and their story kicks off from the clinic taking a pause at their drunk-wedding at Las Vegas moving on to something more substantial. What follows is the tu-tu main-main found in the nascent stages of what you can call a lifetime relation between the two.

Having annulled the marriage, Rahul and Riana decide to move on with their lives but it is not as easy for Rahul as he is already falling in love with Riana. He is heartbroken to know she doesn’t feel the same way for him, but both nonetheless, decide to remain friends for a lifetime. Now, that is what is called a relationship beyond love. A promise made from the heart, to belong with each other forever.

So here’s to all such relationships that make life worthwhile. Do you have such a friend?
