Opposite Poles Attract #vdayblogtrain #ShortStory

Radha is studious, ambitious with only one goal in her mind from her childhood - to take care of her parents well. She is from the middle-class family and she is practical. 

While all their relatives thought a girl is a burden, she wanted to prove them wrong by earning a good name and making their parents proud. 

**************************************************************************

Rakesh is born in a rich family but raised with moral values by his loving parents. He doesn't know the problems of the world but he is sensitive and kind to his friends and family.

Money is never a problem in his life and he never knew financial planning/ sticking to budgets.

Life is smooth for him. He is an intellectual and smart student.

**************************************************************************

Radha is multi-talented. She excelled in music and always won prizes in competitions.  As usual, in her second year of engineering, she attended Youth festivals representing their college for music. 

While Rakesh doesn't know anything about arts, he is good at winning prizes in debate competitions. He also participated in that year's youth festivals.

Radha and Rakesh's colleges were given accommodation next to each other. Radha met Rakesh for the first time when Radha is running to hospital taking her injured friend. Rakesh just jumped in when she needed help with searching for a hospital and managing her sick friend in an unknown city. 

But, they both don't know that destiny will make them meet again. 

**************************************************************************

5 years passed. 

Both forgot each other, both settled into their dream jobs in different cities.

When Rakesh's profile came up from their parents for an alliance, Radha immediately recognized him. Radha always believed that Arranged marriage is a gamble and only a few lucky people will win a lottery (aka a decent husband). 

Rakesh is not even interested in marriage at that time but with parent's force, he went with his family to Radha's home and instantly recognized her. 

They both talked for some time but they were not sure if they are a good match.

**************************************************************************

Radha and Rakesh's families liked each other and now, they are waiting for their children's decision. 

They both agreed hesitantly and the marriage preparations started.

Even though Radha didn't know much about him, she fell for his looks and she also knew his kindness and helping nature from youth festivals.

Though it was not a love at first sight, they both tried to learn more about each other. The late-night phone calls extended till 2 am. 

They were amazed at how different they both are from each other! 

While Radha is studious, Rakesh is an average but smart student. 

Radha is good at financial planning and prepares budgets, but Rakesh spends money lavishly.

Radha doesn't care much about her looks and prefers not to spend money on clothes and beauty parlors. Rakesh always gives preference to maintain a good look by using the best clothes and colors that suit him.

Radha is introvert and loves reading, whereas Rakesh is extrovert and always likes spending time with people.

Radha loves to listen to music whereas Rakesh doesn't know anything about music. While Rakesh loves sports, Radha never enjoyed watching sports or playing.

Radha is a vegetarian and Rakesh is foody and non-vegetarian. 


**************************************************************************
At last, they are tied in wedlock and you know what? They lived happily ever after.

Radha and Rakesh enjoyed their differences, accepted that their tastes are different, both adjusted to some extent, respected each other and more than anything else, they kept their love ahead of their egos in all circumstances.




This story is fiction but completely based on real-life experiences. 

Let me tell you from my own experience, It doesn't matter that all tastes/ interest match for a couple. 

A relationship works with love, trust, and respect. 
If these 3 ingredients are present in the recipe of your relationship, I am sure it tastes great and sustains long.

Don't you agree?

Let me know in comments - what do you think about the opposite poles attracting each other.

Until next time,

Absolutely true. Any relation becomes strong and stays strong when we keep our egos aside move together towards a common purpose. We become "us" and not just you & me

Destiny has a strong role to play in our lives. I completely believe in this statement a little more, after reading your straight from the heart story.

Varsh said...

Any relationship is greater than the personal differences. To make a marriage work people have to accept each other both with and without their flaws. I'm glad Radha and Rakesh had a great relationship despite being opposites!

Anagha Yatin said...

Its the principle of nature that opposites always attract. However for attraction to not become fatal or collapsing, both the sides need immense patience and acceptance.
You have made a strong point with a subtle story Mahathi.

Loved the story, very relatable. Very good use of quotes.

Maneet Gulati said...

Av very nice and relatable story. There are many Radha's and Rakesh's in our society, opposites attract but it is respecting each others differences which is the key to a successful relationship.

Anshu Bhojnagarwala said...

Very rightly said, a relationship should have love, trust and respect, otherwise there is no meaning to be in it. Opposites attract and with a little work can stay together forever. Good story along with the moral!

Anshu Bhojnagarwala said...

So agree with you - a relationship needs love, trust and respect, otherwise there is no meaning in staying in one. Opposites attract and with little work, they can stay together always. Good story along with the moral.

Roopali said...

Loved reading your story and you have beautifully unfolded it. I echo with the principal of the opposite attracts as my love story is similar.

Ritwika Mutsuddi said...

I can totally relate with your lovely blog. Nothing matters when there is love, respect and understanding between the couple.

vartika mehrotra said...

Totally agree with you and that's why they say, Opposites attract. It is all about togetherness, acceptance, and adjustments.

Deepika Pillai said...

adding Ying to yang is the flavour of life... and being “us” is more important than being you and I. Well written!
