Are love affairs adventures of life?Adventures are generally understood to mean activities which involve unusual, exciting or daring experiences. The most commonly known adventurous activities are skydiving, mountain/rock climbing, river rafting or participation in extreme sports like formula one, paragliding, windsurfing etc.
The potential risks involved in adventurous activities may not necessarily be only physical in nature. Broadly speaking activities involving financial and psychological risks can also be adventurous in nature e.g. gambling or over indulgence in stock trading involve financial risks.
As far as psychological risks are concerned, perhaps the love affairs are the riskiest ventures or adventures. The people involved in love affairs never know as to when they will be ruined/devastated. Remember the love stories of Laila/Majnu, Salim/Anarkali and Romeo/Juliet etc. as examples.
Nowadays there are not only the psychological or emotional risks, but physical risks to life like honor killing etc. also exist. Moreover even failed or one sided love affairs are fraught with the dangers of acid throwing etc.
Irrespective of the various facets of the adventures associated with the love affairs, eloping with the love mate and performing marriage in a temple by circumambulating around the deity is patently an adventurous activity.
