  Virtual Pune picks the best of love stories for you to indulge in.

pic3.gif (13162 bytes)Hairsh Dhillino Full-blooded tales of passion between legendary Eastern lovers like Sohni-Mahiwal, Heer Ranjha, Sassi-Punnu, and Mirza-Sahibaan, comes alive in this English translation. Set in medieval Afghanistan and India, the protagonists are often at social-cultural odds with the world around them, but intensely committed to the experience of love- for all its exhilaration and potential destructiveness. Their passion is subjected to heavy odds, replete with long separations, so that even the intensity fluctuates with time.

pic2.gif (13702 bytes)Margaret Mitchell Set against the historical backdrop of the American Civil War, this one story that endures forever for its depiction of girt, and the Darwinian attitudes of its lead protagonists- Scarlett O' Hara and Rhett Butler. Scarlett is at first a product of a tightly laced (literally and figuratively) society, and shows a strong feminist sensibility. As the war breaks, both Scarlett and Rhett's latent opportunism blossoms. They are kindred spirits, recognising their propensity to exploit circumstances - she for survival, he for survival and profit. Their passion blossoms unevenly, however, and she discovers her true love, alas, much after its logical fruition.

Robert Kincaid is both the sensitive poet and the hard hunter, his camera, the instrument that meets illusions and reality. Francesca Johnson is in her own way a stoic figure, (a farm wife). Theirs is an archetypal love, twisting time and proportion, culminating in lifelong insights, defeating all that is mawkish and mortal.
