Love - The Mystery Solved!


I was just trying to define love for a couple of years...hmm...well Love isn't really the thing when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other..!!!! Its really more than that we can ever imagine dear friends.. read on >>

Assume Mr A meets Ms D. B and C are his friends! They are just spectators. 
Lets see how Mr A falls in Love with Ms D! So Ready ? here it goes >>
Mr A loves Chicken. He eats tandoori and grilled chicken 3-4 times a week. Green salad with lots of onion and raddish is another fav dish this man eats. He does a combi of these 2 dishes the night before the day he meets Ms D through Sheer natural coincidence. 

Presenting you Ms A! and Ms D! Their eyes lock!

After effect:
Mr A's heart beat increases, he loses appetite and sleep. he has an intense feeling of excitment. He listens to his fav song that night. A few pimples pop up on his face the next day morning and Mr B(The external trigger) says - "Yaar... pimples!!! looks like someone has started loving you!!" That evening he goes to a movie with Mr C in which his fav actress is on lead role.At the end of it he feels his fav actress looks like Ms D! He eats a lot of his fav Diary milk chocolate that night to add sugar to his feelings.

Next day - Mr A falls in love with Ms D. He is on cloud nine! 

How come ?????????

Rewinding to the night when Mr A eats Chicken and Green Salad. Chicken contains Zinc! Zinc is a mineral that aids in the natural production of testosterone! Onions contains a chemical called Allicin which also contributes to increased production of testosterone! Zinc rich raddishes are natural testosterone boosters!! Oh man..  this guy must be on nuts now!!!!! He really is... the next day he meets Ms D.

Experts say that Lust is the initial passionate sexual desire that promotes mating, and involves the increased release of chemicals such as testosterone. There you go..!! Mr A is rich w.r.t!!! Thanks to those onions!! He gets attracted to Ms D, as and when their eyes lock!

Attraction is the more individualized and romantic desire for a specific candidate for mating, which develops out of lust as commitment to an individual mate forms. Studies in neuroscience have indicated that as people fall in love, the brain consistently releases a certain set of chemicals, including pheromones, dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin, which act in a manner similar to amphetamines, stimulating the brain's pleasure center and leading to side effects such as increased heart rate, loss of appetite and sleep, and an intense feeling of excitement. Wow!!! Thats exactly what happened to Mr A that night!!!  

Overdose of testosterone causes excessive generation of sebaceous fluids that invariably cause pimples and Mr B correctly points it out the next day morning!!! well a man in love mistakes a pimple for a dimple... He happily goes out for a movie with Mr C!! This guys brain is already a juice made out of tiny molecules of chemical-cupids and ends up thinking that the actress looks like Ms D!!!

Adding fuel to the fire.. he eats chocolate. They contain Phenethylamines or PEAs or the Love-Chemical. Phenethylamine is a natural compound biosynthesized from the amino acid phenylalanine by enzymatic decarboxylation and are believed to function as a neuromodulator or neurotransmitter. They help in sustaining mood and also helps in increasing extracellular levels of dopamine mentioned above.Mr A is on a high!! [ You cannot blame Mr C for experiencing all these things himself coz It was Mr A who got him those dairy milk chocolates tat night and took him to the tandoori hotel ] 

Mr A wakes up the next day into a new world and proclaims he is in Love with Ms D!! 
Joke of the century...!! See how he just got fooled by a bunch of freak chemicals!!!

Well the mystery around Mr A falling in love is solved!!! Hope u guys enjoyed the read... see ya..

Oh Oh boy!! wait... forgot to mention a few things.. We just saw the two stages of love.. Lust and attraction.. These are temporary stages... they probably last for a few weeks or a few years.. hmm.. Then confused on how some couples have a long relationship ??? If u wanna know Dont miss this piece >>

Attachment is the word here! Attachment is the bonding that promotes relationships lasting for many years and even decades. Attachment is generally based on commitments such as marriage and children, or on mutual friendship based on things like shared interests. It has been linked to higher levels of the chemicals oxytocin and vasopressin to a greater degree than short-term relationships have.

If all the relationships Mr A had or will have are short-term.. No doubt his levels of oxytocin and vasopressin are very low.. And the interesting fact is tat I was not able to google out a single natural food source for these 2 stuffs.... May be tats the reason why they say tat even God cannot make someone fall in love with you and the same reason why Bruce failed to make his wife fall in love with him in the movie Bruce Almighty!!! Simple... :)

tats it.. bye.. :)

Words that changed my life

I have been thinking a lot, for the past couple of weeks.. wrote down a lot about me... typed pages and pages like a mad man... but I wasnt convinced on what I wrote.. was it worth a read ??  But ya.. then I thought why dont I share something which helped induce, a spark within me long back, which led me to what I am today... 

Some 5 years back my friend took with him a print out, to the class room... he said it was really inspiring... Back at the hostel I read it twice.. thrice... may be a couple of times more.. It was really inspiring.. Here is an un cencored version of it... take ur time to read...

My friend opened the drawer of his wife's chest and took a packet of lingerie wrapped with rice paper: “This,” - he said - “isn’t any ordinary package.” . He threw away the paper and he observed the beautiful silk and embroidery. "We bought it the first time we went to New York, 8 or 9 years ago. She never used it. She was keeping it for a special occasion. "Well I think this is the right occasion." He went close to the bed and he put it next to the other things he was going to bring to the funeral home. His wife had just died...

He turned to me and said “Never save something for a special occasion.  Every day in your life is a special occasion.”

I still think those words changed my life.

Now I read more and clean less.  I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.  I spend more time with my family, and less at work.  I use crystal glasses every day.   I’ll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it.  I don’t save my special perfume for special occasions; I use it whenever I want to.  The words ‘Someday…’ and ‘ One Day…’ are fading away from my dictionary.  If it’s worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now.

I don’t know what my friend’s wife would have done if she knew she wouldn’t be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.   I think she might have called her relatives and closest friends.  She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels.   I’d like to think she would go out for Chinese, her favorite food.   It’s these small things that I would regret not doing, if I knew my time had come.  Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.   Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one.
