The Story of Laila Majnu:
“Laila Majnu is a narrative poem based on a semi-historical Arab story about the 7th century Bedouin poet Qays ibn Al-Mulawwah and his ladylove Layla bint Mahdi (or Layla al-Aamiriya). Qays and Layla fall in love with each other when they are young, but when they grow up Layla’s father doesn’t allow them to be together. Qays becomes obsessed with her, and his tribe Banu Amir and the community gives him the epithet of Majnūn.” Source: Wikipedia.

होके मायूस तेरे दर से 

Majnu, an obsessed lover starts composing poem for his love after getting deserted by Lalila father. His effort to woo laila caused his community to call him ‘Majnu’. The girls father refused Laila to get married with Majnu as he considers him a mentally unbalanced man. And she was married with a handsome noble merchant. After listening this news Majnu leaves his home in search of Laila but she moved to the Northern Arabia with her husband. As the story goes, Laila becomes ill and gradually dies. In the wilderness of not seeing Laila, Majnu was found dead near Laila’s grave. This event is depicted by the poetry written by Majnu.
I pass by these walls, the walls of Layla
And I kiss this wall and that wall
It’s not Love of the walls that has enraptured my heart
But of the One who dwells within them.  :(Wikipeida)

In the history, such type of love is called as ‘Virgin Love‘ because lovers never marry or consummate their love.
