THEORY OF LOVE
A Rising Rechearser
economic problems (Basic love problems)
Anyone who would endeavour to learn economics would definitely come
across this Opportunity Cost theory. This is the cost in terms of
the best alternative forgone.
Possibility Curve (Love possibility curve-LPC):
The diagram shows that life consists of two very important things-
dating and studies. Time is limited, hence, the love birds has to
allocate their precious time both for their relations and books. If
dating unit is 1, then 2 unit of studying has to be sacrificed. If
dating curve is almost at the top, then unit of studying is somewhere
near zero. Since anything of too much is not good, it has an adverse
effect on the lives of loved ones.
It is then the
other factors come in which leads to the inward shift in LPC. Both
parents and teachers, who gets the chance to exercise their sense
of importance, plays a vital role to make the absent minded lovers
study more. That is the theory. In practical, though dating time declines,
the studying time actually remains the same.
dire consequence is illustrated below:
Another factor which leads to an inward shift is Ganjam. 'Parai dhukle
Thaj Khora Kore Debo, boleche parar dadara….' This song of Anjan Dutt
explains it all. For my own life security, I prefer to stop in here.
This is defined as the social costs or benefits borne by the third
-The profit of entertainment centres, like Thunderbolt and Sports
Zone booms up. Love is an encouragement for businessmen to invest
more on restaurants, and fast food shops. This is also the reason
why gift shops like Hallmark and Archies exists at the first place.
These acts as 'complementary goods'.
-More 'Kaji Offices' are set up, since there is more probability of
-The girls gives an ultimatum to the boy that if he does not stop
in being involved in Ganjams, then she will leave him. Society is
relieved from hassles since less people are beaten up (systemized).
-When there is a tension going on between the "Romeos and Juliet's"
then, the frustration and anger is poured on the younger siblings.
Poor brothers and sisters.
-With the 'falling' in the, there is a 'rising' in phone bills. Poor
parents have to pay for their children's love affairs. Analysis shows
that this has an advantage too. Government revenue shoots up; hence
there is more money for the country's improvement. Since the phone
is always busy, others who try to call never get the line. If there
are two lover boys in the same house, one pair cannot get to talk
because of the other one. Since they are the thieves of the same mango
tree, all they can do is 'curse'(Resemblance to anyone, living or
dead, is purely coincidental)
According to the Bangladesh
bureau of statistics, the male-female ratio is 6:1.The supply of wanna-
be brides are more than is demanded. Hence, in marriage market, a
well established, handsome, attractive groom is a rare fish in the
pond. Let alone, handsome ones, the not so good looking ones get to
choose among at least 6-7 beauty pageants. One way to solve this is
marriage between inter nations should not be taken as something unsocial
to do. Government might intervene in the love/marriage market to solve
this social problem. The government might provide facilities to those
female beings who will marry males from other nations. This will act
as an encouragement, and will help to decrease the supply of females
in Bangladeshi marriage market.
The figure of marriage market then would be like this:
RATE OF RETURN:
The law states that initially
love turns the 'Lailys and Mojnus' blind. They try to spend as much
time as possible with their sweetheart. Hence, the utility increases.
No matter, wherever they are, whatever they do, they are just for
The figure is illustrated below:
The lovers are deeply in love. You will get sick and tired of hearing
their love's name. They will try to convince their friends and family
as to how nice, intelligent and fantastic their lover boy or girl
At one point,
they think that their love is made in heaven. That is the peak point.
After sometime, 'Time, not the mind, put an end to love'. Either they
accept each other as a part of their life, and realizes that there
is more in life like friends, family and own interests. Hence utility
they get bored, which is a normal scenario now-a- days, and 'dumps'
their ex-love. This also leads to the decline in curve. As the saying
goes-"love is sweet in the beginning, but sour in the ending".
Though there is
a wide availability of the commodity-love, there is an acute scarcity
of the 'pure essence' of it. This is why it became possible to relate
love with business. It is a pity that now true love can only be found
in history books and romantic novels.
no offence intended in the above article to all the true lovers in
the world. I still appreciate their philosophical outlook. I wish
them all the best.)
