Teenage Love Stories in India: An Epic

Whether you are or not an Indian, you might have seen some Bollywood movies in your life. And in almost every movie, they show a love story of 2 people deeply in love with each other, but they cannot marry because their families do not support their relationship.

Well, this is actually what happened in many cases, and though the people of India have turned much more progressive in their thoughts and actions, you would still find such cases in India.

And when people of legal marrying age face such issues, what do you expect the outcomes of teenage love stories in India? There is a bit of sweetness, a bit of salt, and a bit of spiciness in the recipe and I think the teenage love stories are definitely worth lots of Bollywood movies.

Talking about teenagers, they start getting attracted towards each other right from when they are in school. And this is not just about India, but anywhere in the world.

But talking particularly about India, the love stories begin at school and these kids sit together in the class. Besides, they also share their lunch and roam together after school if the parents of the girl are not too strict. And even if they are strict, the kids make excuses about extra classes or visiting their friends’ house for studying, while they are spending time with the one they are attracted to.

And most often than not, these love stories last only till they are together in school. Later, they get separated due to higher education or some other reason and the story ends for most people.

However, some teenage love stories form in colleges as well and many of them get carried from school to the same college when one of the people opts for the same college because their loved one is opting for it. The story continues till they are together in college and when the education ends, many love stories give up then and there.

And amidst all these, many love stories see a hard time when their parents find out about them. Most of the parents do not agree to such relationships.

But if the people are truly in love with each other, they are stern about their decision. And then, even the strictest parents need to accept their defeat before the children. Have you ever been a part of any such love story or seen such a teenage love story?
