HEYYYYYYYYY

WHAT? NO? Hide your women and children , yes I am Backkkkkkkkkk. Its been ages since I wrote a blog and it was all because of my Mechanical Engineering well am almost half of that now and free these days so m back.

Now onto the topic, we know there have been many love pairs all over the world and all over in history from Romeo & Juliet in stories of Shakespeare to Heer Ranjha in our punjab of Pakistan. Since I have started blogging I have started to look at things with a different eye and that is exactly what happened in this case and I thought what if these love stories and these pairs came to the present day how will these stories reoccur. Lets begin
1. SASSI PUNNUN
Original Version: Sassi was the daughter of a washer man and Punnun was the prince of Makran. When he heard about the beauty of Sassi he came looking for her and fell in love with her. Sassi also loved her so to get her hand in marriage Punnun dressed as a washer man went to her house but her father gave him a challenge to wash clothes since he didn't knew how to he torn the clothes but Punnun gave his father money to get Sassi's hand in marriage. Punnun's brothers were against this marriage so they intoxicated him with many drinks and took him back on a camel's back to Makran but when Sassi knew about this she ran behind Punnun calling for him but she didn't found and died during a sand storm. When Punnun woke up next day he went back looking for her and also died during a sand storm.
2011 Version: A girl named Sass is the daughter of a professor at college, a boy named Paul goes to this girl's home one night and tells her that he loves her and asks her hand in marriage from her dad and acts as an assistant professor. His dad being a professor asks him stuff about study but he fails but then he tells her dad that "I am filthy rich" and the dad agrees for their marriage. When Paul tells his friends about this they are not happy and they think of intoxicating him out of this idea but when they try to do it they get to know that Paul is already 'high' and was doing all this because he was 'high'. Next day when he wakes up, he tells Sass the reality which breaks her heart and she goes off to a metal band concert with her friends to take her anger out where she meets Raja who is the lead guitarist of that band and who is also tired of his girlfriend Hira (explained below) and gets in a relationship with him.

Both of them used to meet at night when Maahiwal used to swim across the river to meet her and bring a fish with him to roast. One day he didn't catch a fish so he cut a part of his thigh when Sohni saw this she cried. From next day Sohni used her baked pots to swim to Maahiwal as he can't swim because of the injury. One day Sohni's relative replaces her baked pot with an unbaked pot when she catches Sohni's act. When Sohni goes to swim with that unbaked pot she drowns looking this Maahiwal also jumps and drowns with her.
