They say, Ishq aur mushq chipaye nahi chiptey. Aankhen dil ka aaina hoti hai.
Apart from talking in cliches, we all on daily basis wear a mask, a facade to hide our true feelings. Be it anger, irritation, disappointment, but most of all we perhaps hide the most important feeling of all, love.
When one falls in love, one actually takes so much care to not let it show. Like it is a flaw, a weakness one needs to rectify. There is denial, reproach and of course scoff at that bug having bitten us. The usual dialogues we tell ourselves are, I can’t fall in love? Stop being silly, its just… and there are options that we give for what we feel but love. Hah! This is so absurd.
But once we accept love, then we still do not go and tell the one person who should know about it. We hide, pretend it does not exist and sometimes go to lengths to create barriers.
Aahil Razaa Ibrahim, Sanam Ahmed Khan, Rehaan Razaa Ibrahim, Raahat and Hayaa all are going through this phase. They are creating facades that hides their true feelings. Aahil is hiding behind his sense of honour to hide what he feels for Sanam from everyone else. He tells his mother that he will not take his marriage vows lightly. It is permanent for him.
Then there is Sanam, who is hiding behind her excuse of needing money to take care of her Badi Ammi to get married to the man who she has fallen in love with. The sense of sacrifice, duty or responsibility is what she is hiding behind.
Rehaan is hiding by not acknowledging to him what he feels. He is hiding his hurt, his remorse behind his smiles.
Raahat and Hayaa will never be able to speak their feelings. Every one of us hides things, sometimes from oneself. Sometimes we put veil in front of us to hide.There are other times when we apply make up to tide over that obvious pimple. We pretend by skirting away our eyes, the mirrors to our soul. And there are times we just close them, deliberately.
Will we ever look in the mirror straight on and see what is reflected there? Or will we ever let our true mirrors of the soul reflect what we feel?
Think about it.
