I AND THE OTHER
For many of us love is an energy of life and if we’re obsessed by it, we will never be afraid of where it takes us. Obsessive love can be traumatic, especially when our body and soul is totally possessed with someone who we had a glimpse of but never met. This obsession is difficult to define, as love, many a times swells with sentiments which can dwell in our psyche for a long spell. Mihika Kurien belonged to a strict orthodox Christian family. Her father compelled her not to love a man who did not belong to her religion. Tied done with rules and norms, Mihika’s mind took a flight of fancy to the handsome Zorana, the boy who played the djembe at the lake front. Zorana’s sudden disappearance left Mihika to hallucinate about him and her obsessive love for the man took her over the hills and plains. Her inner space to dream of her erotic fantasies protected her from her father. There was just one person with whom she shared her story…Oceanos.
