Let me first thank my fellow bloggers who voted for the topic and made it a topic for 50th edition of Indispire, thus giving me an opportunity to have a panorama of views on the word, its understanding and perception. As the topic was started by me, I am having a close watch on the responses too. And I find -- it has inspired . Inspired us to write, inspired to research - inspired to debate and inpired to pour our hearts out.

I too believe Soul-mate, may not necessarily be your life-mate. He or she can be anyone – Anyone whose mere presence or thought, gives you a sense of fulfilment. You are your true-self and with whom you express yourself even before thinking. Even the silence talks and heart speaks. So, its divine, linked to a sharing soul half seeded into the other half. The relationship is more beautiful and romantic if it is between opposite sexes in which it is most often referred and found.
