And he places a woman right into the middle of this passionate circle. He shows that in this particular moment, she is the center of his universe. She feels the warm currents emanating from these hot and peaceful hands.

When a man hugs a woman, She feels like she has wings, and she can fly. This circle of love is calm and cozy. This silent tenderness makes her melt like a sugar cube in a cup of tea.

What does she feel? Who is she in this moment? Is she a woman, or a girl? After all, he’s just holding her, protecting her from the outside world that is so cold and lonely. But in his arms it is warm and comfy. These arms are her  protection and tranquility. It is everything a woman unknowingly looks for, waits for and hopes for…

Hug your lady more often. Place her in the centre of your circle. Cherish her by showing her how tender and sensual your love can be. Just love her — she craves it, however strong she pretends to be.

Nano Fiction 51 : Losing The One You Love

Losing the one you love..

Your eyes will never stop searching for them in a crowd.

So many people become stories and poetry, but they hardly know!

Not all of us have a happy ending, some are just tragically beautiful.

When you lose once in a lifetime kind of people, there is no way to deal with the loss.

The loss of a lover, for any reason is a heartbreaking experience. Some never fully recover. There might always be a small place in your heart that holds the pain of this experience. You shared something profound together. And suddenly one day it's gone. The sudden awareness that you can't call them and be comforted is worst.

Her hair no longer on your pillows. 

His toothbrush no longer by your sink. 

Her perfume no longer lingering in the air. 

His shirts missing from your closet.

That stuff hurts.

Your broken heart wants to know how love, which is obviously a giant lie told by people to destroy others, still exists in the world. 

You see happy couples doing all the cute things that you were just doing a few months ago and you think "it won't last" or "I hate them."

And who the hell are these people announcing their relationships and engagements on Facebook? Don't they know that the world ended?

After all, love only leads to pain, right? That's how it feels. Love itself is at fault.

Nano Fiction 50 : Home

You are worthy of love and belonging, just by way of having been born into this beautiful planet.

You deserve to be loved fiercely.

You deserve to be loved by a man who knows how to love hard, know you inside out- your fears, worries, insecurities, phobias, and doubts, and want even more to love you through every last one of them for who you are at your beautiful core.

Who wants to see you at seven a.m. with eyes that only open halfway and strands of hair stuck to my bottom lip.

A man who understands that love is shown through the little things. 

Same like talking to an all-time-soul-understanding-friend and having a one-life-time conversation with a heart friend leaving the best footprint over the years.

It is in the soul of an individual to be with the one where life will automatically transforms into the best adventures experiencing the roller coaster ride worth trying, all filled with amazing and awe. They understand your needs, even before you say it out.

It isn't about looks, nor money but the simplicity in life that is so attractive together. Knowing you could survive anywhere as long as you are together.

Nano Fiction 49 : You Deserve Someone Who

You deserve someone who -

Does not think your relationship is too old to flirt with you.

Is totally transparent to you.

Writes to you.

Doesn't belittle you.

Loves you fiercely despite those nasty 3-4 kgs you put on.

Believes you are worthy of love and belonging.

Knows how to love hard.

Understands that love is shown through the little things. 

Wants to know you. Know the slight line between your elbows. And the shape your furrow makes between your brows. Know how exactly your lips curve into a full-blown smile.

Gives you the most enchanting, stable, and unbreakable entwining you’ve ever known.

Finds a permanent home, not just a halting station in you.

You can walk with. Travel with. And find pockets of magic in grey city dullness.

Love is making a choice every single day, to either love or not love. That’s it. It’s that simple. Either to continue the process or not. You deserve someone who chooses you every damn day.

He has offered solutions to them using from most famous to least known incidents from the epics. Lord Rama, Krishna and Hanuman stand out in the book for their wisdom, fearlessness, dexterity and intelligence.
