Hugging was invented for a Bloody good reason!
I read this somewhere:
“They say Disney land is the happiest place on earth...obviously they’ve not been in my arms!”
So rightly said...also like it was said for Kashmir by some wise guy...
“Agar dharti pe kahin jannat hain...to woh yahin hain, yahin hain, yahin hain...”
This guy too would have forgotten to remember the significance of the eternal embrace...sigh, sigh!
I think I was made for hugging and being hugged!
It’s my cherished pass time...
My favourite hobby...
My ideal state to be in...
It’s the inevitable cure-all, priceless be –all and ultimate end-all!
The need for hug would have to be timeless too...
Picture this...the stone age man returning home after a tiring day of hunting down the flora and fauna and meets his partner at the threshold of the cave...She welcomes with a smile but he needs more than that...the comforting feel of skin against his own...especially considering that they didn’t wear clothes then (...that should make some things stand...I meant the goose bumps). And their hands would clasp at the backs and heads rest on the shoulders and feeling the feel-good factor being transferred from one end of a human body to another....mmmmmmm! And lo! The hug was discovered or rather invented and passed down as a traditional legacy to the off-springs...a secret more inestimable than any material wealth!
It’s amazing how a simple hug can conquer, transform and transcend...
The simple hug may say that someone’s there, that everything would be alright, that you did well, that it’s great to see you, that you rock big time, that you are my life, that I need you, that i wish these clothes didn’t come in between us and so much more!
It brings about a rush of hormones if done suitably and lingeringly...and bear hugs are known to release the bouncy nuts in the system. So if there has to be a hug, it better be a long, crushing, everlasting one for those like the proverbial kiss in the air and fad-like are such spoilers. A hug must be a full blown jhappi or nothing at all...when you close your eyes and become oblivious to the world... Like Munna Bhai so rightly said...it would and should be a jadoo ke jhappi...reinstating bonds, establishing new ones, culminating feelings and winning over enemies! One hug can do it all!
So gimme, gimme, and gimme more of hugs for without my daily dose of it...I feel my body stiffen, emotions wither, my humour crumble and the muscles twitch...so the withdrawal symptoms are pretty serious and I prefer to stay addicted!
Hugs to all my friends and readers that say...thank you for the warmth you bring in my everydays!
