Ranjha (Teedo) was the youngest of four brothers, after a confrontation with his brothers, Ranjha left home and travels around and comes to Heer´s village, where he found his love, Heer, who offered him a job to take care of there cattle. Having met Ranjha, Heer became mesmerised by the way Ranjha played the flute (Wanjli) and eventually fell in love with him. They would meet each other secrectly for many years until they were caught by her jealous uncle "Kaido" and parents (Chuchak & Malki). Heer was forced to married to another man "Saida Khera", with the full permission of "Mullah" (priest), who was well-payed by Kaido.

It is the most famous true love story of Indian and Pakistani history. The tale of Heer-Ranjha is the most popular romance of Punjab. Similar to Shakespear's Romeo and juliet it tells a story of two Muslim lovers "Heer Saleti" & "Dido Ranjah".
The above story is very touching. But this kind of love is very hard to find today.
Todays lover somewhat says like this..

wichon kudi labbi, kudi labbi heer ,
jad tak jeb wich rahe paise, bani rahi taqdeer ,
jado jeb wichon mukke paise , kehndi hat piche sohne Veer,
hun main hor kise di HEER!!

You are right in todays times there is no true love left.In day to day life we hear people saying that I am in love but that kind of love is just attraction that goes with passing time.Lovers like Heer-Ranjha,Sohni-Mahival,Romeo-Julliet sacrificed their life for their love.

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.
