What is it all about?





I wanted to share another incidence with you guys- my bua (dad's sis) believes in astrology and all and she took me to an astrologer (that is another torture story, some other time). There was a guy with his mother who was getting horoscopes matched.

The case was a love story, the astrologer was sayi
ng that this is not a suitable match as the girl’s stars dint match with the guy's so the guy could fall fatally ill after the wedding. The guy's mother seemed scared, but the guy was cool, he rather asked the astrologer if this union would not harm the girl. The astrologer said, it will be okay with her.. And he told her mother that we won’t tell this thing to girl's family.
Other people present over there were all stunned on the guy's reaction and started whispering things like 'love is blind' and stuff..

Yes, I agree it was brave of the guy and totally in love with the girl, but on the second thoughts, God forbids, if such thing happens to them after the wedding, the problem guy shall face can’t be overseen, but what about the girl? If something happens to the guy, the girl shall remain alone to suffer..

It isn't fair as far as my logic understand that. Tell me your stakes guys. Please note that I am not talking about belief in Astrology.

To tell you honestly, I can't believe predictions like this. Just because a person marries a particular person, will God make him die? No, I dont think so...
AGreed astrology is a science and many of it is proved, still I find it hard to believe..

BTW, the guy was indeed brave

ki said...

I don't know. I'd love to say that I dont't believe but faced with the situation, who knows?

Divya said...

hmmm... well, i'm a believer of astrology, and its sad for such things to happen. well, yeah i get your logic but i guess for the guy and the girl now, it's more important that they are together, at least for as long as they can be. i mean, it's so much better if ppl who have already decided to go for a love marriage did not check their horoscopes and stuff, they are gonna marry anyway!

Mahul Bhattacharya said...

Nothing is going to happen to the guy, trust me :-).

It's another matter that if something were to happen, the family would be frying the gal.

And yes, I know a lot of guys who would do the same thing.

Trinaa said...

reallly????? does this guy have a brother?...i wudnt mind a guy like him! ;D

Towards reclamation said...

the thing wrong there is him not telling her about it .. later if both decide to take that chance .. and god forbidding smthing does go wrong with the boy.... the girl will suffer .. but no pains no gains ..
as i said him nt telling the girl though is wrong ..

mayz said...

i like this guy...wudnt i love to b like him...we shud b proud of such ppl...n dat astrologer shud b given a beating

Arjun said...

If the guy believes in astrology... Then it isn't logical....

If he doesn't believe in astrology, he should never have gone there...For a pure heart like him.. he din't deserve going there....

Watever it is... The guy's gold.. :)

Cheers..!!
Arjun

Arjun said...

n i agree with Divya

When it's a love marriage, wats the point in consulting an astrologer... they r gonna marry anyway...

@Trinaa

good guys have bad brothers..!! hehe

Kartz said...

Hmmm... This reminds one of Lage Raho Munna Bhai, doesn't it?

Ah well, Astrology does fascinate me; not tht I *follow* it. But, if he does love tht girl, she he hide things from her..?

I mean, in general... U love someone and wanna share ur life with him/her, shdnt u be prepared to make such things known?

And again, it is rather pointless to visit an astrologer when it comes to love marriage. Duh!!!

Peace.

Tushar Mangl said...

pure selfishness on the part of the guy.
Hail Astrology

Phoenix said...

well the future is not ours to see... yes borrowed from the song kay sera sera..

but this is the major truth in life.. who can predict what happens next?wouldnt then we be able to prevent disasters and terrorist attacks etc?

its the same case here... if they get married they will be blissfully happy right?since its a love marriage... what happens next will have to be borne bravely.. al least they had some fine moments together.. its like.. its better to be loved and lost than never to be loved at all..

Ria said...

I think of two ppl love each other and hav known each other for a while then they shudnt go by such predictions. Its time ppl start taking their own responsibility rather than blaming it on astrology and stuff!! I mean if the guy falls ill then the girl will take care of him and he'll be fine. And if the guy has to fall ill then it will happen as it is!hw can a girl coming into his life change it!?

Pranav Kumar V said...

You don't need astrologers to tell life wouldn't be the same after marriage!! :P About the girl... life HAS to go on... it might as well be the one your love wanted to see you like... the rest just follows...

See you when I see you... :D

americanising desi said...

a lot can change in terms of destiny, depending upon how the togetherness is worked!

Kunjal said...

astrology is something very confusing! though I am not a believer yet I cannot deny the power! but yes definitely in this era we cannot blindly follow this moreover he can always ask for the remedy mostly the astrologers suggest a way out:)

sawan said...

we cant live on fear and assumptions. if some one tells you that you might go through an accident, would you quit coming out of your house? its very natural to get affected by illness. lets hope the guy or his mother would not see the illness [if it happens] as the effect of marriage. i give full support to the guy.

Keshi said...

I hv to agree with comment #1 here.

Richa Im off now. u TC and ty for everything sweetie. HUGS!

Keshi.

Jinxed Pixie said...

maybe you are right...
but then again, see, maybe the guy wanted to prove that nothing could come in the way of true love..
and see,
it's better to die after getting the one that YOU wanted, rather than living with someone you don't like...
ok, this is getting really cheesy...

Sam_2 said...

astrology is confusing. no fixed opinion abt it. but i dont believe its right for the couple to part just cos stars dont match....

thats crap...

they shud go for the knot!!!

яノςんム said...

@ Praveen
hmmm...
astrology isnt what I wanted to talk about here, but u r right. this is ridiculous to blv tht some1 can die cuz of marrying sum1..

yep agredd the guy was brave..

яノςんム said...

@ Ki
i hope u never get into such thing :)

яノςんム said...

@ Divya
yeah the whole point is if u want to marry anyway, u shudnt get into astrology and if get into it, thn it is bad to not let the girl know of it

яノςんム said...

@ Mahul
i really wish the same :)
n the girl has to suffer i said so..

waaooowww!! really r there such guys?? but the point is why to get into astrology then??

яノςんム said...

@ Trinaa
contact mahul for tht regard ;)

яノςんム said...

@ sid
agreed, not telling the girl is wrong..

яノςんム said...

@ Mayank
lolz, wuss the mistake of the astrologer?? wat has he done to get a beating up.. the wrong is on the part of the guy tht he went to the astrologer

яノςんム said...

@ arjun
i really fail to understand the guys logic buddy.. may be cuz his mom forced him..

яノςんム said...

@ Kartz
oh yes right, i cudnt remind tht :D
n so u do watch movies :D

n really tht is sumthn vy close to me- i like astrology but dont believe in it :D

yes u r ryt, it is a breach of trust not telling the girl.
moreover, wen the girl will get to know tht sumthn cud go wrong with the guy, wouldnt she feel guilty??

яノςんム said...

@ Tushar
hmmm...
the girl will suffer!!

яノςんム said...

@ Raka
hmmm..
yep u r ryt, future cud b predicted..

loved and lost.. but how about the girl who willremain to suffer alone and u know about the society of ours.. dony u??

яノςんム said...

@ Ria
yes it is vy pointless to get into astro in love marriages..

яノςんム said...

@ Pranav
lolz.. u look experienced :P

яノςんム said...

@ SEher
yes, ths a point too.. destinies change.. and they have prooves of it in astrology itself..

яノςんム said...

@ Kunjal
hmmm yep u r ryt, astrologers do suggest a way out, n i guess the guy shud follow tht..

яノςんム said...

@ Sawan
yes u r ryt though.. n hope for the same :)

яノςんム said...

@ keshi

яノςんム said...

@ Jinxed Pixie
lolz it is cheesy, but wat bout the girl..

яノςんム said...

@ Sam
i too want vy much for them to get married..

L. Venkata Subramaniam said...

Interesting the guy believed in the astrologer. Otherwise what was the point of asking him if his wife will not be harmed. So I guess he is okay with falling sick and leaving his wife a widow.

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

Well interesting..
Yes love is blind and always accompanied with madness...
I think if that guys will do something for her, in case he realizes that something is gonna happens to him..

Arnav said...

Hi ..
I am a believer of astrology.. and I also know ..that there are solution to such problems.. some yagnas and puja needs to be done to prevent such a happening..

Moreover for a relationship to work out.. understanding between the couple is far more important than astrologer .. we really cannot take actions on astrology alone...

Charmed One! said...

hope nothing happens and everything goes well for them
God forbid.. if something does... am sure the guy will never blame the girl..
but surely all his relatives will and that can make her life miserable..
she will feel guilty and other will make her feel more guilty...

яノςんム said...

@ Venkata
i dont agree with the guy to let the girl live on like a widonw..

яノςんム said...

@ Mahesh
love is mad yes, but it is selfishness on the part of the guy..

яノςんム said...

@ Arnav
Agreed..
both ur points are worth taking :)

яノςんム said...

@ Charmed one
agreed, but i think about the girl and i feel it wud b injustice to her..

Kartz said...

@Richa
You had already made a conclusion regarding yours truly and films? Very bad. :P

@Arnav
Not bad, buddy... Good to see you dropping-by blogs despite your schedule.

@Richa
If I may introduce, Mr. Chatterjee, above. A good friend of mine, from university.

Peace.

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

What to add when one says its selfish...
Yes he is...
but i dont understand that love where in u let ur love to just go away..:)
