In 20th and 21st Century, Relationships essentially revolve around sex. Readers crave for porno. Porno creates readers for itself. Every human interaction between two persons, particularly between a male and a female, gets revolved around not even bodies, but around sexual organs. I am not writing of Platonic love, nor am I a fan of Platonic love. What I wish to highlight today, (Feb. 12, 2019) on the occasion of the forthcoming Valentine's Day, is the twins of sexual love and asexual love are not mutually exclusive. They complement one another, both bodily and emotionally. In the 20th and 21st Century Relationships, apart from the fetish of lovers to sex, there is also an unduly excessive stress on "exchange of gifts, especially high value gifts".
STORY of Eka VIra
Late Telugu poet and scholar Viswanatha Satyanarayana wrote a novel by name Eka VIra.
The theme in the novel was two friends by accident or fate, marry beloved of one another.
Their married lives became miserable as minds and bodies conflicted during emotional and sexual intercourse.
Finally, as far as, the film ended in a tragedy. All the four people died.
Late N.T.R., Kanta Rao, female stars K.R. Vijaya and Jamuna acted in the film.
There seems to be difference between culture of developed countries and a country of ancient culture like India.
In India both friendships and marriages seem to be taken very seriously and are treated as long term relationships, whereas in the West, the contrary is true.
