Getting married does not
come in the way to
success
      As things stand today

 There are “Arranged” Marriages
                 Or
Fall in Love resulting in a Marriage
           Marriage ! Why ?
Reasons could be :
To legitimize a relationship
To have kids
To have a stable family unit
To share wealth
To Enjoy etc. etc.

You may say Marriage is not for the JAWANI.
It is an investment for companionship in the Old
Age. When everyone around you is too busy with
their own lives and you are left out. You then need
someone to call your own.

  When men feel
LONELY, they take to
    Drinking.

 When women feel
LONELY they weep.
             “The most terrible poverty
             is loneliness and the feeling
                        of being
                unloved – unwanted.”




“There is more hunger in the world
for Love and Appreciation than for

          Let there be spaces in your togetherness,

          Love one another but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

          Sing and dance together and be joyous,
              but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with
                       the same music.

     Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.

        And stand together, yet not too near together:
          For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
