The Dove and the Fish


Fluttering his wings, a white dove flew down and sat on the branch of a Banyan tree. It was travelling from afar. Tired of  a long journey, he walked on the branch of the tree which extended to the lake, to drink water. When the white dove stretched out his beak to the lake, he saw something shining with a golden hue, in the water. He drew out his neck as far as he could and as it beak touched the water, the golden hue flapped its tail and spurted water on its face. As the water fell on his face, he shut his eyes. When he opened it, he saw a beautiful golden fish with a coy smile.  Their eyes met and he fell for her. The next day too, fluttering its wings, the white dove came and landed on the same branch of the banyan tree and waited for her. And there she came swimming with her beautiful smile. Her heart sang and danced for him. Their tryst continued till they realised that they could not live without each other. 

But....
But....

The fish cannot leave water and live with the dove and the dove cannot come and live with the fish in the water. But they wanted to be together. Can you suggest a way out ?

You Can

If you can delve deeper and fathom the intensity of  ' Love'.

Some romantic quotes




“I'm not frightened. I'm not frightened of anything. The more I suffer, the more I love. Danger will only increase my love. It will sharpen it, forgive its vice. I will be the only angel you need. You will leave life even more beautiful than you entered it. Heaven will take you back and look at you and say: Only one thing can make a soul complete and that thing is love.” 
Bernhard Schlink, The Reader 


“I have little left in myself -- I must have you. The world may laugh -- may call me absurd, selfish -- but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame.”

Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre


“Be with me always - take any form - drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I can not live without my life! I can not live without my soul!” 

Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

“My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Healthcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.” 

Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

“I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.” 

Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
