Love sees no religion.

He performed namaz five times a day and she was a follower of Lord Krishna, the god of love. They believed in their religions but in humanity was what they believed more in. Their eyes matched and hearts pondered. Her eyes reminded him of the shine of the crescent moon that showed up at the night of eid. His voice reminded her of the melody of Lord Krishna’s flute.

Love was growing inside their hearts as it sees no religion, culture, status or caste. They found their comfort and home in each other irrespective of all the differences. They respected each other’s choices and loved with all their honesty and heart. With time, their love grew and they became inseparable.

But the world did not acknowledge their love and they were separated from each other. The detached souls couldn’t convince to let their love survive because, for people, humanity and love come after religion, culture and society. People got so engrossed in protecting their religion and image that they made the world’s biggest mistake.

Their daggers had the power to end the beautiful souls but not the power to end their love. A father’s hand didn’t shiver while killing his daughter, a brother’s eyes didn’t shed a tear while letting his sister die and a mother couldn’t gather the courage to protect her daughter. And once again, the world proved that humanity is dead.

With it ended another story of love, a love which could have lasted forever. With it, the world proved it has the power to end the purity of love and society proved that dignity and the social image is more important than humanity. But some stories don’t end so soon. Their love became eternal just like the love of Radha and Krishna.

  1. Shivani, I think it’s time for everyone to go to YouTube and listen to John Lennon singing, “Imagine!” Can’t humanity move beyond the brutality and violence? Religions profess to be about love. Your story, if not about a specific event, is representative of many actual event. It is very well-written. all the best! Cheryl

    1. My story is about how love is beyond religion, how humanity is dead in today’s scenario and about honour killing which is very much prevalent in India. As you said, my story isn’t about a specific event but it is representative of many actual events. Thank you for the appreciation.🌸😊

  2. Shivani, this so brutally honest and well written.
    This is chilling and there is much truth and sadness in the separation and power that feels no remorse to take a life of inoccence and pureness in the name of whatever their god, political power or caste is. My heart breaks for inhumane injustice, and prays for humans hearts to return to love and light. Your truth sheds light as painful as this is and my heart holds the victims of those that have been killed, families who’s hearts bleed and prayers to those who have yet come to the truth. Thanks for sharing! ❤️ Cindy
