Rama consigned Sita to the flames. Krishna made many husbands cuckolds. And they are our gods. Their love ought to be true love. Really?
Helen and Paris loved each other and started a war which killed thousands of people. Was that true love?
Antony loved Cleopatra to such an extent that they died for each other, killing many in the process.
Jesus Christ loved mankind so much that he let himself be crucified and then went on to be worshipped as a god. True love?
The Buddha was not much of a lover, I think. He was too indifferent. But if we were to live with him, we would have found him the ideal human being, almost a god. Indifferent. But never judgemental. Eccentric and yet the most sane. True love?
Mother Teresa loved everybody because she saw the face of Jesus in everybody. She loved Jesus. Not Tom, Syed or Hari. Was that true love?
Mahatma Gandhi loved his principles more than his wife or children. True love?
I love Mr Narendra Modi because there is no connection between what he says and what he does. I think that is true love. In today’s world.
