Comment : Yes, SOUL MATE is important.

We as an individual needs a physical mate. That's nature's design. We'd like an intellectual mate. That's the need generated by our intellect, our mind. Our 'soul' supposedly transcends both, our body as well as our mind. In that case, is it required to have a mate?

Comment : Aelita from Alexei Tolstoy's sci-fi . I was in school when I read the Hindi translation of the novel. I was so madly in love with this fictitious character called Aelita that I spent many months daydreaming about me travelling to Mars and meeting her. At times, I'd wake with start in the middle of the night thinking that Aelita had come to see me. It is a some kind of madness which laste almost a year.

Let's accept it. During our years of growing up, we come across some fictitious character in a book or a movie who is etched up by the writer so beautifully that it leaves behind an indelible imprint on mind, enough to last a lifetime. We get smitten. It could frame up our idea of a near-perfect hero or heroine. Who is your favourite protagonist from a Classic book or movie and why?
