I take on the baton of Blog Love from Mayuri.

So the conversation started off with a rant. Like they always do.

I was still reeling from a loud , over the top , ‘Happy birthday my Princess’ video declaration of two random people on my Facebook timeline & went on to read Imitaz’s observation about  Social media taking out the pleasant mystery involved in Romantic Relationships . It struck a raw nerve & I tweeted out my thoughts on how Technology was killing the romance in our lives  .

That’s when Maggie and I started to chat.

My point was we fall in love very quickly , coz we love the idea of love. But Romance is the real deal and I wasn’t talking from the standpoint of a married working mom . Romance is personal and intimate and takes a lot of effort. Technology and especially abundance has taken the fun out of wooing.

Maggie’s point was Love was still awkward and complicated . Which I don’t think is true . Love to me is one part fairytale and one part trigger-happy hormones.  Romance is the real deal because it takes effort.

Some confuse the act of making an effort to that of making a spectacle . Outrageous or understated , whatever be your style of expression – we both agreed finally . It has always been about the effort.

Which brings me to the question , how this post is remotely connected to Blog Love? We are getting there. I am putting in the effort – can’t you be a little appreciative?

So I realized , how every love story that became the epitome of romance , apart from ending quite tragically of course , involved so much effort in the good old days. There were stolen moments , there were these long letters , there was us against the world and what nots. Thankfully creating tacky Facebook videos wasn’t a thing back then so people actually went the extra mile . A case in point being , the cliché but classic Romeo Or Juliet or the modern girl’s handbook to life ‘Pride & Prejudice’ .

So my Dear Blog , I may not have written sonnets for you or made promises to be by your side till eternity . And even though ironically Technology brought us together & Social media has to a certain extent become a third wheel . I agree that we may have grown out of our initial enthusiasm of updating each other on our everyday lives and even celebrating milestones together . But over the last 9 years , like an old couple , we are comfortable in our silence and thrive on every ounce of attention. Be it an angry rant or an ecstatic soliloquy , we listen , we talk , unselfishly .

And in doing all that in our own little way , we have made an effort to be a better version of ourself for each other . We have accepted our flaws with an open mind & taken each other beyond our capabilities. I think there is and always has been a deep love between you and me [ and I can most certainly say , it’s a projection of Self Love or something as romantic as that] so it’s time to bring the Romance back in our lives !

This Valentine’s Day with BlogChatter -the heart and soul of Richa Singh , the blogger of my life and our light , Let’s promise to make BlogLove great again.

 I pass on the baton of Blog Love to Ramya Rao.

    Oh Chandni! Its been a while since I read you and honestly? You need to write more often or maybe I need to read you more often! Your words are so effortlessly magical! They weave seamlessly from social media to la-la land innocuously enough! And enough with the ‘like an old couple , we are comfortable in our silence and thrive on every ounce of attention’ !! This is a hot and happening couple – you and your blog! Loads of love to you and your blog!

    This is one of the best posts I’ve read today. The way you’ve expressed love towards your blog is like a classic hollywood affair. The flow of words are as smooth as the love described thru them. Hope you write such wonderful narratives more often, Chandni! Loved the way you wrote this piece. ?

    “It’s time to bring the romance back in our lives.”

    I can give lots of suggestions for this! First, we start with flash fiction posts. Then we do lots of feminism posts (so I understand more about it. I really don’t know what feminism EXACTLY means, thanks to all distortions available on the internet), and then we do lots and lots of awesome conversation posts.

    Happy valentine’s day once again Chandni ❤?
