Love at levels

14th Feb, Marine Drive, Bombay

A posh villa set off the beach, where the cool breeze enters the bedroom waking her up with drops of sunshine on her face.

9 am (IST): She wakes up and gets into a warm, bubbled tub. *The phone rings*. She picks up the bath receiver.

Husband: Good morning my Honey bun, sugar plum, Happy Valentines Day! How beautiful is my love looking today? I love you baby from the bottom of my heart. I can’t wait to see you.

Wife: I love you too baby, wish you the same. *Hangs up*

Slips on a pair of suede Gucci pants and leaves the room smelling like Versace, flipping on her new diamante glares from Dior.

Walks down a wide spread staircase and sees: The living room decorated with white and red roses. Smiles as the butler leads her to the fine black Audi RS 6 parked the in porch outside.

A chauffer dressed in white, with golden buttons down his chest, drives her to the airport, while she stops on the way picking up a greeting card.

She boards the flight, and flashes her credit card to buy her husband an expensive tie from the on flight shopping card.

14th Feb, Champs Elyesse, Paris

2 pm (CET): Hugs and kisses her husband.

Husband: So glad you made it. I was so held up with work, I put a 100 Crore deal on waiting for you Love.

Wife: *Smiles superfluously*

He hands her a diamond studded brooch over the expensive lunch they have and she gives him the tie and card.

They fly to Tokyo and are right in time for dinner at a posh Sushi bar.
*Goodnight kisses* and Sweet goodbyes.


14th Feb, Bagepalli, Karnataka.

4 am: The flame burns bright as meek fumes of carbon monoxide fill the room, the lean cow is being milked and hot tea is being boiled, tantalizing the room with soothing fresh fragrance. She simultaneously packs dried jowar rotis for her husband as Tiffin.

Husband: Good morning, another tiring day approaches, hope all your love is being put into those rotis you’re rolling.

Wife: Yes my Love, come home early.

Husband smiles, gulps the tea and leaves.

The day goes by, the wife walks two villages to draw water as there is a drought in the village of Bagepalli. She faints on the way back; a few villagers help her get back home. The word is spread and reaches her husband in the fields.

As the sun goes down, the husband rushes home as the sick wife disappointingly awaits her husband with no water in her pots.

Husband: *leaning by the rugged mattress his wife lies on* I heard you fainted today, are you okay now?

Wife: Yes, I went to draw water, because I know you always come home thirsty.

Husband: I don’t need the water, when you speak such sweet words and make loving efforts to comfort me. That’s enough to quench my thirst.

Wife: *Smiles genuinely*

Husband: I got you this rose. 10,000 roses were exported this morning to the city. Something big is happening all I heard was; “A day to give roses” Thought you would like this.

Wife: Thank you. *Puts the rose in her hair as he compliments her.*

They feed each other a salty soup of vegetable peels with dried bread and contently get a good night sleep.


Love is the most beautiful thing that can happen to someone. It can be glamorized and expensive or it could just be an exchange of a few salty sips of soup between two lovers. Special words and actions do it all. It’s just how one makes it special for another, and how the other appreciates the special-ness.

Happy belated Valentines day!
