“….If the Titanic had not been drowned, one eternal and the most beautiful Love story would have been left buried forever, guess everything happens for a reason…”
“ Ruth: So this is the ship they say is unsinkable?
Cal Hockley: It is unsinkable. God himself could not sink this ship…”
The Titanic with 2214 crew and passengers, set sail on Apr 11, 1912 from South Ampton France en route to New York commanding by Captain Edward Smith who was set to retire after maiden journey of “Well-Nigh Unsinkable” ship. The ship cruised peacefully till the mid of the voyage only to get hit by an iceberg which appeared more like a Death Deity on their way. As soon as the Officers received the warning, they turned the rudder hell left and threw engine into the reverse but the fate has already been written by the Marine God. The residents of US didn’t bat an eyelid when they heard the news of the ship sinking to its watery grave at the moment. First cracks, then broken, then divided into two, Titanic slept forever on Apr 14, 23:40 GMT 3,800m down in ocean’s lap.
Titanic’s interior was fully developed with seven star luxury designs by designers. At one end of the ship, there was crew working on the need of the passengers and at the other end, an eight piece band used to play a promenade deck. The mammoth Ship with price tag £1.5 million was an undying chef-d’oeuvre. After the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, various groups and individuals searched for the Titanic wreck for decades. Many had started to believe that the ship’s grave would never be found. Bob Ballard, a former US navy officer has first discovered the remains of the ship in 1985.
“ You will find pairs of shoes everywhere. The sea and the life below has claimed everything but they don’t know what to do with the shoes so you will find a pair of mother’s shoe next to her little daughter and that’s their gravestone…
-Bob Ballard ”

“Rose: I’ll never let you go, Jack. I promise.
Jack: Where to, Miss?
Rose: To the stars…”
James Cameron, director of epic TITANIC did full justice with the movie. Leonardo Dicaprio, with his golden hair locks became the poster boy of every teenager’s room as Jack Dawson. The soothing chemistry and impressive romance that has been shared on the screen between Jack and Rose is still remembered as one of the greatest Love story of lifetime. Though the imagination of this love story was a part of fiction but still we can admit that if the Titanic had not been drowned, one eternal and the most beautiful Love story would have been left buried forever, guess everything happens for a reason…
The Titanic may have drowned unfathomable inside the ocean but the depth isn’t as deep as it has been drowned in our memories. Titanic is eternal. It will be reincarnated again and again.
Let me live beneath in you, beneath abysmal inside!
Come what may, I love you, you’re my only side.
Grab your arm; make you stand on railing, don’t panic,
“I am Flying Jack, I am Flying, and its love romantic…”
Be with me, loneliness has all bygone,
Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on…
Once more you open the door,
I want to love you entirely
Love that has actually grown…
And you’re here in my heart and,
And my heart will go on…
