Sleeping beauty and.....

.....the hiding princess.
Long back i heard the story of a princess who was as fair as snow, with the lips so red like the blood and hair so black like a black raven. She was a charming little girl with an innocent beauty, but was loathed to death by the wicked queen, her step mother, for being the fairest among all the fair women existed. The queen was also a  beautiful lady, but was deeply obsessed with her fair skin and wanted to be the only fairest and the only beautiful women in the world. So the princess had to run away into the deep forest to live with the incredible seven dwarfs and to hide from the queen's wicked intentions to kill her. Though the queen failed in her many attempts to kill the lovely princess in disguise, she was successful one day to insist and tempt the princess to take a little bite of the poisoned apple and make her sleep dead. As days passed there went a prince riding into the deep forest and encountered the glass coffin made by the seven little dwarfs and found the beautiful princess laid in it. The prince instantly fell in love with her, but when he was refused to carry the beauty to the palace, he wanted to kiss her to say goodbye. The moment the prince kissed the princess, the apple bite, which probably must have stuck in her throat, came out of her mouth and fell from her lips.  And this way princess got back to her consciousness. Later the King banished the wicked queen after learning about her cruel intentions for his daughter and married the princess to the prince. Wasn't that a thrilling story with an enchanting ending? I had always loved the story and it is still one of my favorite fairy tale stories until today. There are certain genuine elements in the story which touched my heart like true love of the prince which brought Snow White back to her life, patience displayed by the princess Snow White all along her life to find the true happiness, honest, faithful friendship of the seven dwarfs, diffident beauty of the princess. All these true attributes were strong enough to withstand the wicked queen's cruel intentions and finally strike her out of the palace. The writer who thought about the story must like fairy tales and love the fantasy world though he knew fables would never be true in this real world. Most of us probably grew up learning such fantasy stories. And despite the fact, there is nothing like a magical world, many of us, including me, still read such mysterious stories and live in that fanciful world at least in our imaginations, whether it be a Snow White, Cinderella, Rappunzel, Frog Princess, or even today's blockbuster Twilight. Infact i cannot tell the whole story a fancy, because snow white struggled all her life to get what she deserved. Its just the ending that is no way in the hell possible in our real world which i call something very eerie. But where in the world anyone has seen such a strange romantic tall story happening in somebodys life? We have definitely heard about love at first sight in our world, but as far as i know i have never seen such an intense, true love happening to someone right in the very beginning which could bring back even a dead person to life.  Atleast we have legendary love couples who with their beautiful love stories created a history - like Salim and Anarkali, Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal, Antony and Cleopatra, Tristan and Iseult, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and so on. Their love was so true and powerful, that even after they got apart from each other either by death or some other reason, their love was so strong that it was worth making a history for us to remember and read it again and again. Many people, nowadays, think a split between a relationship to be a love failure, i would rather say it an utter failure of a relationship either because of misunderstanding or lack of trust. Even if there was at least a little bit of truth and understanding in their relationship, their love wouldn't fail. And even if they had to go separate ways instead being together, their true love would always remain in their heart as a beautiful memory. In todays generation, I see many girls/ boys trick their partners - girl friends / boy friends - into a fake relationship in the name of love and spoil the pure word love. People kill their partners in the name of love when the word love literally means giving new life and happiness. Without comprehending the true meaning of love they just make mistakes and then blame the love or the entire mankind (man or a woman) for their deeds. If i say, fairy tales like Snow White can be true even in our real world, if we try to be true to our soulmates or partners with the divine approach and the right perception which we fail to do. A true relationship can fight any kind of difficult situations easily and achieve any impossible targets in their life. And when i say true love, both the partners must equally strive to maintain the relationship based on a strong foundation called, truth and understanding. And such a love would not only create a history, but can also prove their life to be more than a fairy tale.

  4. I think things that happen in these fairy tales can sometimes be true in real life. But most of the time things don't happen like that at all. The reason these tales are loved so much is because the things that happen in them are so rare. They are also very rare in real life, but they can happen in the right circumstance.

    1. Hi Ratty,

      Absolutely, fairy tales are very rare things in our real world. But there is also a possibility that something like that happen and that would be definitely enchanting like the Snow White fairy tale.

  6. Nice post...it's true that things that happen in the Fairytales don't always happen in real life and that's why they are fairy tales:) But one would always come across some instance or the other when we feel "That's a magic! A miracle!"

    Thanks for your visit and kind comment Elvirah:)

  8. Love has lost it's charm. It grows on the foundation of trust and patience. After all we are humans and be are bound to make mistakes. There is nothing more beautiful than to see a person grow in a relationship.

    Thanks for such a beautiful post...:)

  9. Elvirah,

    Here I am as promised. Read all current posts. The story about drowning man and God is so right. I will surely try out that sandwich. We have to face all thorn in life with confidence to shine in what we do. It is always good to follow your own thoughts in a work place as most of colleagues are happy to see one in tight spot. Fairy tales are good but in real life there are so many other factors which need to be remembered.

    Take care

    I am glad too that you stopped at my blog and posted your precious view on my post..it is like a reward for me..thanks..
    I remember, when I was studying in class 7, I had read the story of "Snow white and seven dwarfs"; which you have retold here in your beautiful worlds..
    you are a wonderful storyteller and you write very fine prose;;
    many of us are well aware of this story because it is a very famous one, and as I told you I have read it already. But the debate you have discussed after telling the story is amazing. I have not came across such a wonderful and heart touching conclusion..
    really you have good analyzing skill and best words to express it..
    nice and god bless..

  16. This is such a beautiful post, Elvirah :-) I can see that you put your whole heart into writing and constructing it. The images are spectacular and I like how you interspersed each one in your writing.

    Some people in life are lucky to find true love but it seems to be a rare thing these days. People forget to honor their vows. We'll always have fairy tales to provide us with those happily ever afters :-)

    Great post and it is penned lovely!

  17. I wish our life was a Fairy Tale. But Fairy tales exist only in books and the reality is cruel. Dying in love is not the true love but growing old supporting each otr in every ups and downs of life is a true love. I loved the post of urs and I too believe love is divine and unconditional.
    Thanks for passing by my blog and dropping a lovely comment.. I m following u now:) Cheers
