O' Mother, O' Sweetheart

A late night chat session going on in the apartment, and out of the blue, Doodie chips in seriously:

Tell him - "Once I read one of Tagore's book called 'Two Sisters'. Wherein Tagore explains how a man looks for a motherly figure and a lover simultaneously in a woman.". Tell him - "I found both in her".
And the whole group goes silent.

Intrigued by this, I read the book on a bus journey back home. The intro to the book goes like this:
It is about the eternal conflict that arises when a man does not find a mother figure and a sweetheart in the same person. He needs the former and desires the latter.

Man draws strength from the Mother in a woman and inspiration from the beloved in her. When the two do not meet in the same individual, his heart is torn asunder. The poignancy and the tender irony of its theme makes Two Sisters one of the finest Tagore novels.
Though, the story was unimpressive, the concept of a mother and a sweetheart in a single body seemed interesting.

One line which caught my attention, went like:
Man is fighting a war with Fate everyday of his life; and if the soft, loving hands of a woman binds him and hinders his rugged onward march, it is but normal that he ruthlessly break free from the binding, and carry on his war.
