When his mother asked him, “Why don’t you get married?” Bhagat Singh replied, “I am already married, and her name is Freedom.”
Now, it behooves a Bhagat Singh to not get married to a woman because he has committed himself to freedom, but to every Tom, Dick and Harry it does not suit. When a great scientist, or a devoted politician, or a committed author decides to remain unmarried, it is wonderful—but only then.
First of all, figure out something great to be immersed and absorbed in. If you can figure that out, then you get the license to remain unmarried—but only then. Bachelorhood befits only those who are committed to something worthwhile, because you do need something rich, something powerful, something voluminous to occupy your life and your mind. Do you have such a rich purpose?
