Heer Ranjha is a very well know story.. though this is just a work of fiction, written by Waris Shah. The story like all such stories, is partly true and partly fiction, yet it continues to have such a powerful hold on the imagination of rural folks that they want to believe it to be true.
By writing Heer, Waris Shah not only told a fascinating story but also raised the status of Punjabi from that of a rustic language, which was mostly a spoken language, to that of a language of literature.
But what I have been thinking and I know mony of you are probably thinking here we go again Bikram is thinking 🙂 but no seriously have a think and logically there was this guy who belonged to a rich family of four brothers, when the wives of the brothers asked him to do some work he gets all upset and leaves home.. What does that tell you that this young man did not like to work hard.. wanted an easy life .
So he goes and then falls in love with Heer, FAIR ENOUGH they had a love story going and whatever the circumstances.. or whatever happened Heer gets married to someone else .. NOW this is where I have my argument…
Marriage is a very HOLY and SPIRITUAL relation where you vow to live your life with your partner in health or otherwise .. Heer gets married .. Now I believe that we all have a past .. Each one of us has had a past whatever that is good or bad ..
Now when Heer got married then WHY was it that Ranjha had to go behind her, to spoil her life and the life of the one she got married to.. I mean isn’t that supposed to be a start of new life for Heer..
When someone is married we should let go.. Let the past be past whenever we go and try to get the past back all we get is HURT.. It not only spoils the realtion of the newly wed but a lot of others get hurt tooo..
OR am I wrong …
Do you think he did the right thing of following Heer to her In-Laws house and then spoiling her marriage …
