“Laila ma Laila…Ayse ma Laila…Her koi chahiye mujse milna akela…Jisko bhi dekho…Duniya bhula don..Majnu bana dun”
Hi I’m Laila. Let me formally introduce myself to you. I’m a woman of many talents. People are mesmerized by my beauty. I even smell so good that people can’t sniff me enough. I can make an honest man lie to his own mother for me. I can make a poor man cry for me every day. It’s not just how much they want me, it’s actually to what extents they can go to have me. They can pledge their ethics, their self-respect, their loved ones to me. Even if they have to sell their souls to the Dark Lord, I know they won’t hesitate for one moment if it comes to that. As Kanye West likes to quote it “I sold my soul to the devil, it was a crappy deal, but at least it came with a few toys and a happy meal.” (He follows me on Instragram… Just so you know).
Now the question then arises is that why? Why am I so important? So loved? So celebrated? Why are people willing to sacrifice their loyalties, values, even their lives for me? The answer to this question is very simple. I let them dream. I make them believe that they can achieve anything they want; become anyone they want only if they have me. I become the key to their happiness. The sole key and after all who doesn’t like to dream? Who doesn’t want their dreams to take shape in reality. It is what we live for, isn’t it? Money, Lust, Glamour, Dreams and Success. Well that is exactly who I am, I am Laila. Nice Meeting you!
