Meera’s subservience on Ramesh was growing stronger day by day. She was missing his comforting presence and his gentle touch. She was also remembering his loving words. Her days became dull. It was just like a flower without sunlight. 🌻🌻🌻

3) Emotional dependence resemblance with modern society.
This quote was taken from a famous epic named Ramayana. It is believed to be more than 10,000 old epics. It was the story of love. People used to have total dependence on God and beliefs. Modern society has changed a lot since then.
Today’s people’s need and thoughts are not just limited to certain topics like war, family and agriculture👩🌾👨🌾👩🌾. Nowadays people even choose to stay single or marry someone of their own gender.
But this doesn’t mean that the teachings of ancient time are not fruitful. This quote is showing the dependence of man and women with each other in many more terms of life. It gives us a valuable knowledge so that we can have a happy family.
It teaches us importance of our partner (Love for husband and wife) and need of sacrifice in our life. Thank you!
