“Chicha! Give me a gum” he said as he sat down on the bench in the park
It was a general hangout space for this gang, it was just so pleasant and they also had fun there since their childhood.
“Hey! Bharath have you forgot to bring the gum today i told you to get that for all of us!” Shashank asked him in return.
Shashank bharath were the ‘Chaddi Baddi ’ friends that they call themselves. They were pretty good in their studies and have never missed any fun that their age group have had.
It was a very pleasant morning with the breeze blowing from east gently over the trees that take in the fresh rays of the morning sun, dancing to the breeze to the music of the birds chirping in the peaceful and quite park over the branches looking at the aged people exhaust as they walk in the park in keeping their health fit. They walk in just like any day and sit over the newly built wood benches just to match the park and increase the elegance of the park.
“I do not know what is wrong with these girls now a days they have no taste....”Shashank utters to himself “Arrggh! I wish i had the luck of her holding my hand as she walks on the road and the whole world shall feel so jealous of me. Shit!”
“What happened to you! Like a mad guy talking to your selves. Pooja or what?” Bharath says.
“No! Pooja? Is she here man! I do not want to talk to, ask her to leave now. I do not want to see her face” Shashank replies furiously lifting his head to see bharath.
“Haha! I get it now. What’s wrong with Pooja and you, have you given up your liking for her now. At last she has something to cheer upon” Bharath replies laughing at his reaction
“Come on now, don’t laugh da” Shashank replies.
‘Da’ is a general word that they call their close friends
Shashank was 10 years when he thought he felt his heart skipped a beat. And he felt the same way in his next five years consecutively and everytime he only felt but he never tried to let it out to the other gender. But it was in his 17th year that he had the same feeling no wonder it was routine to feel that way but this time he expressed his feelings only to a certain extent and he had his methods of trying to impress with his stunting techniques and skills on his bike and his funky junky hair styles that he used to get it done as his fathers friend owned a beauty saloon for men and women and was so popular in the city.
“Pooja ! i do not know what has happened to my senses after i saw you Pooja! I do not know what has happened to my thoughts as i keep thinking only about you Pooja i do not know what happened to me after i saw you” he paused
After a week bharath has pulled all his guts to speak in front of pooja with a written script given by shashank and after his rehearsals for the last 2 days.
“I smile suddenly i do not know why
I suddenly forget my friends name for yours i do not know why
I suddenly see all the faces fade away as you pass by me i wonder why
I did not know the reason and in silence my heart answered all these questions.” Bharath continued as he recollected all the lines written by shashank and told them with a feel that he has never practiced. He was tensed that is for sure.
Pooja stood still like a rock looking at the empty streets. curling the hair strands behind her ears which let her dazzling long ear rings visible which caught almost everyone’s eyes along with a lips so delicate and red which were one of the highlights that she possessed. She was so thin wearing her black jeans that showed her physique that a girl would be trying so hard to be and she had a knack over maintaining it perfectly. With all these is not enough she had these deep black eyes that were so beautiful along with the kajol that she had put on and those never let any one from not staring at her. No doubt bharath’s heart skipped a beat.
“Do you know why? Pooja” He said with a smile of curiousness of listening to tell her that she likes him also
“I think you should ask these questions to a doctor and you would get a better answer for that” Pooja replied with an immediate answer.
“Oh! Pooja you are very funny. Okay then i will tell you” Bharath spoke after sensing the situation. “It was all because of you pooja. Yes since the day i saw you. I love you pooja” he completed his sentence strongly.
“I would better ask you not to come back with this sort of stuff bharath.”Pooja replied and she left.
It was after a week of his proposal that he saw pooja with a guy who the whole college talks of as a rich guy and also was good looking with a pleasant smile and bharath could not take it.
“Chillax boss nothing to worry may this be for a better future, for you” Bharath was diplomatic and these words had a little impact over him and he cooled down
They smiled at each other suddenly. A new start, a new time, another beginning of their late teenage days. But that is not the case in here they smiled at each other not because of realizing the truth that pooja would be in his life. Its because they saw a girl in a distance from their bench. She was so traditional that was his first impression when he saw her for the first time.
I do not know whether it was a real but i never wanted it to be my beautiful day dream. I am sure about one thing that she did not make me skip a beat but she did mean my smile right now the one that i had it on my face.
I would not want to see myself getting mocked about me having a crush over a stranger never-the-less not to my heart because she is my heart, She is the one i would continue to walk with holding her hand in hand all the way from the goa beaches to the pilgrimage’s. OMG my heart is speaking to itself never felt this way, my hearts pounding at a higher rate i never felt anything like this ever before
“Bharath! Bharath!. Da Bharath!” Shashank calls out to the lost bharath
Bharath by the time he regains his senses..
“Yes, ma i am coming back in ten minutes. Bye.”Bharath answers the phone call
“Lets go! Da tomorrow onwards we gotta be here earlier” Bharath tells to shashank
“Whats wrong Bharath what are you thinking. Anything wrong with you” Shashank asks
“Nothing wrong I.. I think I am in love...”Bharath tells Shashank atlast
“Da! who is she” Shashank curiously “Where did you see her? What’s her name ? when did you see her? ” Shashank continued
“I do not know anything about her at all. Call it love at first sight and one side love too” Bharath replied
“Come on man when and where did you see her?” Shashank asked
“Here right here in the park on that bench yesterday” Bharath smiles as he recollect all the memories
“Come on lets see if she is anywhere in the park” Shashank wanted to see that girl no matter what
Shashank and Bharath were on their move in search of the girl everywhere in the park. This is common for these two but it was always for Shashank
But this time for Bharath and after a round up and down the park duo reaches back to the same place their hangout spot.
Opposite to them they see, a girl sitting over the bench playing with her silky loose hair falling all over her peacock blue chudidar with a thin golden border that fits in perfectly with her ear rings hanging and shining. To all these her black kajal on her eye lids and with a thing long black sticker covering 1/4th of her forehead she was looking like an angel for his eyes, actually she was angel for him anytime.
“Da! Are you serious? Gosh! I could have see her before.” Shashank tells Bharath.
“Man! Believe me you are talking about my wife.” Bharath speaks jokingly
“I am the happiest person for you if you would end up marrying her”
“I know that man. Brother from another womb!”
“Gotta leave da mom asked me to come back, there is some work can you do a small favour?”
“Yeah tell me”
“Will you try to manage to bring out some information. Please”
“Yeah! I will give it a try”
The very day Shashank had to go to Hyderabad for he has got his interview letter. So every day Bharath himself went to alone, she always managed to come earlier than him. Each day she looked even more prettier and the feelings over her grew more and more.
“29/04.....Every day i walk into the park with only one motive, today is no different.
I watched from the same bench admiring her caring nature towards children sitting along side her. She never moved from her place but still the way she was smiling talking and every act, she is just good.....”
“30/04....today she was looking towards me...not continuously though but occasionally i think it was random but my heart says she noticed me. This makes me think of two things 1. Should i go and talk to her or 2. Should i wait for shashank to come and tell me what to do...He had lost his mobile so could not reach him....But this girl is what my mind thinks of every time. She is stunning today in her yellow chudidar”
“31/04 fudge! I should have set my alarm much earlier....yeah i was very late and i could not get dressed well but i managed to go there but she already left and i always wonder why i could never stay until she leaves and follow her home.....but i do not know but it was never possible.....okay but today she was stunning in her black chudidar and she was stunning beautiful... ”
“01/05 Today i could not go I was very upset and every time i think about it i ask my self, did she miss me? Did she notice my absence? And all my heart says is......nothing it has more questions rather than answer so i stopped listening to it....I will come back tomorrow i will not miss”
“02/05 Man i really missed her today man she did not come today i was really sad about that i just cannot talk...i will come back tomorrow...by the way shashank is buying his phone tomorrow gotta talk to him soon about this.. good night”
“03/05 i talked to priya about my love issue and she says that i have to approach her immediately and talk to her as i told her that i found her staring at me too some times and she told me that girls hate people staring at them and like the people who approach them with confidence....i am sure i gotta pull all my guts and approach her soon but should i do it without Shashank?...I donno i will think about it now...bye.”
“07/05 sorry could not talk to you i was little busy but all these days i managed to rehearse the proposal in front of the mirror, in front of priya, in front of teddy beat and also in front of snoopy my dog. I think it is weird but yet i feel confident about talking to her now........yeah i am gonna talk to her tomorrow and propose her.... ”
She was as beautiful as she could ever be. She was wearing a white chudidar with a peacock design over it along with a fat blue and golden border. She has got her compensating gold long chains type ear rings hanging beautifully, her hair pulled to a side over her forehead along with a little punk falling before over her eyes and a plates behind. She was looking perfect just like some one would get ready on a important night. But here it was just co incidence and i loved it.
I could not reach Shashank before going so i texted him what i was gonna do and i am sure he will be happy for me
“Gosh! Why am i unable to reach his phone now. Please god do not let him go there! Please do not let Bharath meet priyanka ”Shashank talks to himself in a sad and at the same time with some desperation.
Priyanka is the name of the girl and shashank could figure out some details about her “Priya....Priya! i have to talk to her” shashank feels that it is the right move
“Hello priya just go to the park immediately and look for Bharath his phone is out of reach. Please go fast ” Shashank insists priya
What is wrong with him! Why is he stopping him! Why does he not want him to meet her? OMG! Should I do this, should i ask him not to meet her. He was dying for this day. Let Shashanl have a good reason in doing this
“The number you are calling is not reachable do you want to leave a voice mail” Priya listens as she tries to reach Bharath.
“Hey Bharath please wait do not meet her before meeting me. Got to talk to you something wait at cafe coffee day. Priya” Priya leaves a voice mail in anxiety
“Priya I am on my way home i will bein the city in 1 hr please hold him for me .” Shashank pleads priya for this favour
“Goddamn! Shashank! Can you please let me know why do you want to stop him” Priya shouts over the phone
“.... it’s...you know on the other day when he showed me her in the park....he left before...” Shashank speaks hesitantly “You know on that day i was waiting for my friend...till late morning.......and..”Shashank speaks confused
“08/05 Yeah i am writing much early today even though the day did not come to an end but i am sure if i write it in the evening i will be out of words, over cloud9, I am sure my feelings are true and she is truly impressed with the way i was behaving ‘Being positive of yourself and what you are speaking will impress girls a lot’ priya always used to say. Okay i will go now bye...hey wait wish me luck!”
Bharath writes and leaves to the park in order to propose her and....
“Let me explain how important she is to my life! She is the painter and i am the canvas, I am the flute and she is the air blowing through it. She is the heart and i am the body of love.... I will let her know all this”Bharath speaks as he slowly walks to the park and approaching to may be his turning point of my his life.
“Hey!... ah!.. I....ah!.... I want you to.... know something” Bharath speaks as he picks each of his words carefully
“Yeah! Sure! But who am I speaking to” Priyanka replies
“Um!...The one whom you used to look back at every morning?” Bharath speaks
“I am sorry I do not look at anyone..Practically i...”priyanka speaks when she is cut off by shashank
“Ah! Would you mind us coming back in a second. Bharath there is a phone call for you!”Shashank speaks fast and gets him out of there in a hurry
“Man! I am glad you are back but let me go i am proposing man! Now i am even more confident because you are back......”Bharath talks like the happiest man in the world.
“Da! I do not...... I do not want you to propose her. ”Shashank tells bharath in low voice
Sensing the situation is not right “Da! Why? I am going.....I am going to let her know. Do not stop” Bharath walks off as he speaks to shashank
“Da! She is not correct!”
“She is not correct? What do you mean she is not correct. Yeah she is not correct she is the perfect one that fills this space of my life”
“Man! Okay! Let me tell you. She is blind!”
“What!”Bharath falls down on his knees crying.
By the time priya reaches to the place, she listens someone sobbing.
“Hey! Bharath what is this” Priya tries to console him Priya and Shashank tries to get him back to his senses for the next 10 minutes and to their surprise things turn pretty unexpectedly and Priya and Shashank were out of their words.....
“....What are you talking bharath...are you sure about it...”
“Da!....but! what about your mom”
“do you find any problem in Priyanka! Priya?”
“Bharath! Go for it I support your mindset. I will tell shashank”
“Priya why did you leave him? His mom? What if she does not approve? What will happen to his love of life? What happens to his life? What....”Shashank is stopped from any further questions
“His love is so true like that of mother to their children. I will talk to his mother” Priya says as they walk towards Bharath to know what is going to happen
Priyanka is in her sea blue chudidar with a blue sticker and her hair left loose to one side of her face completely and only her left ear is visible as their ear rings making their impression along with her stunning beauty.
“Do you mind walking with me? ” Bharath asks
“Sorry! , may i know who you are” Priyanka’s friend asks Bharath
“I am sorry. My name is Bharath and I.... I want to walk with her”
“Walk with her? Walk with her for what? And she cannot s..”
“Yeah! I will cut you right there. And I know everything about her.”Bharath speaks stubbornly “Now! Priyanka may I have the privilege walking with you ”
“What! Why do you want to walk with me” Priyanka speaks to him for the first time. Her soft and gentle voice was like music to his ears.
“You come with me first!”
“Okay? Do you think it is okay shivani?”
“Yeah! Seems like he is in love with you let us see” She whispers in her ears
“Okay! But till where?”
“As long as you can show me a place where there is no GOD i want to walk hand in hand with you and lead a life”
Priyanka is shocked on what she hears
“Will you marry me?” Bharath kneels down holding her right hand
“What!?” Priyanka’s surprised
He removes his finger ring and gently lets priyanka know by making her feel what he has got in his hand.
“Shivani do you think it okay”
“Shivani can you call her parents” Bharath asks her
“Of course! Here you go”
“Hey! Shivani what was that for?”
“Priyanka you might not be able to see him but I can sense his true love for you and I do not think he is the best”
“Uncle! I am Bharath, I have completed my graduation and I am about to join into Google as assistant GUI designer. I get a salary around 65k and I live in a combined family with a well cultured and good community family ....why i am telling you all this is because I am in love with your daughter and you have to accept me and I think I can keep her happy!”...... “Okay uncle. Take care bye” Bharath cuts the phone and hands it over to Shivani with his head down
Priya and Shashank watches him walk slowly in with his head down and they rush towards him and asks what has happened to him
“Priyanka....Um...”Bharath speaks in low broken voice “All the doors are closed now...”
“Do not worry! You will surely find a better person”
“Wait! All the doors are closed for you”
“All the doors are closed? What for me. Why are the doors closed for me? What are you talking about?”
“Your parents have approved for our alliance. It is up to you for your decision. Will you marry me?”
“OMG! I may not see you but I am sure you will take care of me.”
“How do you know all that?”
“I may live in a world that looks black but I know you have the lantern to fill my life with light and colour”
Shivani, Priya and Shashank watches them walk off from them hand in hand.
What will happen to my family, I am the big one. My father had high hopes on me, he wished me becoming the best son and everyone would make him so proud to have a son like me. I still remember his words when we first entered the college together I felt like i am bearing a 100 ton load of hopes and responsibilities.
On that day after I stepped in I finally realized in four years from now I am a factory made product because in India the amount of engineering students I almost equal to a factory production. You know what I later realized in these two years of engineering I got lots and loads of memories and my family has grew large larger and larger. By the way how will Soumya move on without me, how will she live. Shucks I really should not think about that because she will find one boy any time after this thing you know in India it is 988:1000 ratio girls to boys so it is more like an option to them. Do not get me wrong but you know... and ya I may be wrong with these statistics.
No one comes talking to themselves this way until they are risking their job or planning to commit a suicide or is in a great risk. Yes, I am about to die, may be many people will not be able to sit right in front of their death waiting to reach their “Final Destination”, how ironical, my last movie was the 5th part of it. I am not committing suicide but I am about to die not by a human but by an animal. I wish I could have a better death, I think no one in the world will wish a wish like this.
Let me talk to my dad before everything winds up ‘The number you are trying to reach is currently not reachable, you may leave a voice message after the beep’ An automated sweet lady voice spoke reminding me to talk to Soumya too
“Sou ... Dad! ... Dad!, Hi how are you I know this is unusual for you, me leaving a voice message and yeah I think I had to do this, you will understand this soon” I wish I could talk to him in virtual reality, but then you realise you are no Ambani to have 1 GB of 4g data to do skype call in the middle of a camp you fought a week with your dad to go there with your friends to enjoy where the all new Airtel is still trying to figure out a way to set up a tower. But we can still find 1 bar in signal indicator to reach our parents, the communication system have developed that much for sure, better than this , may be? I have no clue.
“Dad, I am so proud to be your son and I wish I made you proud too. You are the best dad, best leader, mentor and a guide to me. There are some things I want you to know, you know...” my voice broke, My eye gates flushed water out of the dam and I really could not hold myself any longer I let it out... I pulled my strength together and spoke “I got a part time job at Red Bull just let them know about this and Rajesh and Vamsi are my best friends please guide them through in life. I owe the street vendor at the end of the street in the colony 120 Rs for the Diary milk that I bought for your could be Daughter in law Soumya. Just take care of yourselves I know Sailesh will do good. Careful dad with stocks play wise. Love you.”
Ever since I was kid I admired my father and grew watching movies and you know mainly rivalry starts off with favourite hero’s and your life gets influenced by the hero, like wise mine too. I am huge fan of Ranbir and it is so obvious that you learn ‘gaaliyan’ after Rockstar and ‘Flirting’ after Yeh Jawaani Hey Deewani and yeah I learnt them all by no difficulty and you know, that time I realized my mother saying
“Sameer. What ever you want to do, you do but if you are assigned to do something love what you are doing and you will not hate it.” My mother’s gentle voice filled with love and affection reverberates in my ear.
Have you ever realized that there is a worst looser in the worst losers house, it is the alarm clock which fails to wake us up every day. It just gives us a message that no matter how many times you loose try and try and try until one day you succeed in doing what you were bound to do. Everything around us gives some message and we notice that we realise what happened but we never try to understand and replicate that in our life.
Have you ever realized that the amount of calories that you spend in your gym is much less than the calories that your mother burn’s everyday and then she waits for us to come and we come and things sometimes turn ugly, sometimes turn moody and sometimes turn really great. All these changes are not caused because of the love of our mother but because of us. Her love is eternal, unchanged un biased and you just have to realise it.
When the things come to an end and you realise it is coming to an end there are 2 types of reactions , Boredom when we are feeling this way we tend to skip few things like finishing up what we started or starting to get frustrated and second thing is Anxiety. Anxiety is good but the end result is still the same when you know what happened you will leave the space and leave it incomplete. I do not want to do that I will finish up everything I started ‘Hello!” a voice came
I was like out of the world for at least I could speak to the person I loved and I wanted to share it with her for the rest of my life. Like in the MTV Splitsvilla where they say “Where there is love in the air,...” I liked these lines so I just remember them , yeah like I was saying you may not be able to have ‘Love in the air’ everyday but every time you think you are missing love that is the time you are disturbed in your mind.
“Yeah! Soumya! Tha....” I was cut by a voice from the speaker from my phone and I was like ‘NOT AGAIN’
“this is Soumya Sharma please leave a voice message” this automated voice is turning out to be irritating and I have got no time to sit and think about that I have to move from the place but time isn’t right
“Soumya! Honey I love you, you made a real impact in my life and I really adore you a lot cannot just tell them in words. All these years we cuddled and spent real time sharing love sparing differences we had the most beautiful short term love story. I may not be able to do this but I planned to do this on your birthday... I will ask you so that I may not have the guilty of not asking you” I spoke with a husky erotic whisper and I stopped momentarily and I realise when you think things are to be rushed, then you should not be giving any pause.
But as you know its crucial and by these blooper videos that come up when a boy proposes and he gets whacked by any object that is closer to the girl and this struck my head suddenly but then I realized she would not be seeing me anymore so I can ask anything because nothing is gonna touch me. I am invisible, I am not gonna get hurt by anything. And a spoiler alert ‘Mr. Sameer you will be no more’, conscious will never let you have a little relaxation when things are given much thought about, it just has this weird nature of questioning and sometimes you tend to realize and sometime you leave the thought. But leaving it will never help you, give a thought about your conscious and answer and you will have a great idea or result
“Soumya! Will you marry me? Anyways love you. Bye” I hung up the phone sensing abnormal activity around me.
Thirty feet out I see something moving, slowly, through the dead leaves I see something coming towards me and I am concerned what it is.
Your brain never works and starts to simplify some simple doubts or guessing about the situation how it is and all kinds of things. How wonderful to realize it is beautiful creature for those who watch Discovery channel, yeah I think you might have guessed it by this time, it is the snake hissing with the split tongue with those curvy lined path that it impressed over the land and seriously these creatures are way more weird yet fascinating when we see them live. To sum it all, it ‘s a cobra, what a lucky fortune I made out of the forest.
My reflexes reacted but it is too late, the only thing I could plan to do right now is to run to save my life.
I was a football player never was even selected for a school team though, I incorporated it into my resume only to fill up the empty space in the ‘games you play’ column in my childhood and but yet I could run and that is what is most important.
To put me much nearer to my grave, I am dressed u with a jacket which added 500 gms to my total body weight. Trekking and camping in forest excited me to get a pair of woodland big sole heavy brown colour boots which almost looked like a camouflage to my legs and this shit is heavier than it is usually when you run with them. Surrounded with 10 times my actual aged trees around me, dense . It with held the cold breeze that could be below 4 degree Celsius it will kill you with cold. In this bloody kind of situation I have to run to save my life. Yes I ought to cause I cannot sit back in this forest get bit by the snake and die letting my saliva foam come out of my mouth being half dead and taking time watching myself get poisoned all the way and finally just wishing the poison to soon kill me neither can I move my hands nor legs to at least wipe that foam, I lie unconsciously in the forest and my body gets decomposed by all the bacteria rising above my body...
Shucks! I just cut of my imagination and it is just getting vulgar. Over the years I developed this way of thinking too deep into situations visualising and repenting why did I just visualise that sight.
Only option I got is to run, run for my life.
“When you are chased by a snake you should never run in a zig-zag order but to run straight as fast as possible coz it takes time for the snake because it has got curvy motion forward.” This is what I learnt from Discovery and now i feel it really valuable and real education.
I started running in the dense forest cruising through the little trees and bushes as fast as I can with heavy steps every time I move forward...
I could keep a little distance away from the snake not to away to miss its venom spill and I realized I have to hurry all my way and never stop, but my body started to give up and little less my instincts never encouraged...
“Ouch!... Holy Shit! F*** this forest”
These un plain land has disturbed the position of my ankle, I am stating to loose hope of me watching the next sunrise
I remember my father saying ”Nothing in the world is permanent, Neither life nor pain. If you are facing pain and you take it, then there is life for you ahead nor nothing but darkness.”
I understood these lines, sometimes a little conversation you might have not understood before had in depth meaning and you will realize it later and you have to learn...
I started running towards unknown destination like the current corporate scenario, no one know where they are going but they run... here both of us are running for life.
In the calm forest I could listen to my breathe at every step I make and a “hiss” that follows me behind
I ran like a dog not even giving an halt for catching my breathe and I realized I would not keep up my pace and neither my muscles could run anymore and that moment I could listen to something towards the far end of my right... It seemed like a river flow and I changed my direction towards it as not all snakes would get into water.
“God please be with me. Let not this snake swim and let me live...”I prayed to my lord ,so sincerely for the first time in my life.
I plunged into the water and swam fast and looked back and this snake did catch up with me, I wonder what I did to this snake...
“It stopped. It stopped! Yeah It stopped! Oh my god it is not coming.” I was shouting on top of my voice to let the world know that I will be breathing for few more years.
I was willing to go to the other shore and wait till the sun rises and find my way home but the story was different, The lake contained alligator’s and I have one close to me
It found it’s prey and this is coming with it’s mouth open and I realized and I said
“Thanks dad! Lo...”
“Aaa! No!..... ”
Hichcock hichcock the alarm broke out at 6’o’clock, time I set up for getting up.
“Oh! Crap! What happened? I am alive and all in one piece.” I spoke to myself I realized it was all a dream.
"Every sunshine either is the beginning of a new life or ending of one. Whether it is good or bad, the day starts." I wake as the dew drop tickles, as it rolls over me and I feel the mild heat generated in the early hours . I am a leaf watching the whole world run against time and look at us only when there is a huge gathering for an environmental cause. Like every day, I am always looking for some fresh air, and there is a different scenario around me today.
"How can someone just make an impression on one's life at just the first look ?", he asked.
"Don’t be surprised! It is just like it happened to you", a soft voice replied in a quick succession.
I do not know what exactly they are referring to, but I was curious by their words and so I was listening to their conversation keenly.
"If there is anything that I am waiting for, every second of my life it is..."
She interrupted, "Oh! come on Raghu, do not get back to the same issue, I told you I need time."
"I am just saying"
"No! Raghu there is something that is taunting you daily, which is making you ask me the same question every now and then. Why do you do this?", she said, which echoed in the quiet park quite enough to let the world know what they are up to.
"Okay! Riya now let's just stop arguing about this for now.", Raghu replied with a soft tone.
"Stop pretending now. I am getting irritated and I will leave now. Bye!" she said furiously.
I do not know what is happening here but one thing is for sure, I am definitely loving their conversation. Half hour elapsed and a small boy walks along with his mother and sits diagonal to me on a bench.
"Mama! Mama!" he screamed.
"What happened son? Anything wrong?", mother questioned.
"That dog… that dog is staring at me. I am so afraid."
"It’s ok! It just likes you and you need not get worried about the dog." mother told her son.
On a pleasant fine morning like this they hear a person sobbing just behind a tree. They walk to see what happened and they see a girl sobbing.
"Can I help you my dear", mother asked.
She is Riya, I thought she left but....
"Hey what happened to you? Can I help you?"
"No I am okay. Thank you." Riya replied.
"Ok, do you need some water?"
"I need time madam. Can you...." Riya shouted.
In the meantime Raghu is talking to his friend about what happened....
"Dude! it’s done... she... left me… she ditched me" he shouted in low disheartened voice and continued "Yes! just now I asked for the commitment and she feels like I am pushing over her."
"I cannot take it anymore!" Raghu cried concluding.
I wonder what will happen to them. In this world everything is linked with a bond unseen, untold but only felt between two people.
"He is always wanting me to promise on what I am unsure of aunty!" Riya said.
"Is he wanting you to promise him you will not leave him?", mother questioned.
"No. He wants me to give him a commitment for marriage 4 years from now." Riya said and continued,
"I cannot ask my father to believe in his future which myself am pretty unsure of." Riya exclaimed.
"Hmm, that is a very big decision to make… let me think about it" said the mother.
"We actually met this morning and argued on this. I don’t want to leave him, but this is very confusing." Riya spoke out of her agony.
"See dear commitment only comes out of trust, trust comes out of belief , belief comes out understanding, understanding comes out of affection. Here affection is nothing but Love. Speak out to him and let him hear what it is." she said.
"Do you think now is the right time to talk to him?", Riya asked.
"Oh yeah! It is. If you don't mind get him here and speak in front of me so that I will try to help " mother assured. She stood up and immediately brought Raghu to the mother. Raghu just fell down to his knees in astonishment. I could not understand what happened to him and Riya immediately went to help him but before she reached the mother first reached him.
Raghu exclaimed "Mom! You?... Riya… She… aa..."
While Raghu shivered, Riya asked "Mom? What? What are you talking?"
"Mom, what are you doing here? I wanted to tell you but I was afraid. Mom… " Raghu finally spoke.
"Aunty? your mother! Oh crap.", Riya exclaimed.
Mother just walked away saying nothing from them right towards me and was staring at me. I literally could not figure out what she was feeling. However my life has come to an end and I can see no more sunrise and sunset. I take the last breath deeply to stay alive and to see what happens.
"Raghu take this rose and offer her a commitment and make sure you believe in yourself before you ask her to" Raghu's mom said.
Raghu took the rose, went to Riya and said "If there is anything in this world which I must take care of more than anything, it is just you. Believe me, I will never let that smile fade away. I love you!"
"Love you too" Riya replied. Seeking his mother’s permission she hugged him.
At first I wished I could help them and sort out their problems in anyway possible. You might be thinking if I was the rose I could have helped but, I was just a leaf an adding element to eternal beauty and so yes I have helped.
In this world along with the beauty of the nature lies an unknown bond which makes things look more beautiful just like the rose looks even more beautiful with a leaf alongside it. In the same way trust along with love gives you happiness and it is what most relations lack.
Love everyone and you will love this world. No matter what happens, you will always be happy because you will always be trusted for your love.
In a dense forest centuries ago were the only life that existed consisted no brains and has got no idea what they were doing. Yes I was speaking about the age of dinosaurs and also “The Phoenixes’ ”. As these flying dragons a.k.a Phoenixes’ were always on the move above the ground as they had to search for their food, but soon they were into something that is doubtful about their existence because the dragons are on the move around the globe for occupying place and live with their families. One of these phoenixes’ when was on its search for food was attracted to a white ball kind of stuff that was stationary in the middle of a huge burnt land. It has immediately made that white ball as target and immediately went towards it, but to its suprise he found it to hard to eat so he grabbed that in his claws and flew off towards home. He then drops it off in the land of phoenixes’ and just doesn’t take any interest in eating it.
These dragons are the on the move towards taking land and they get into a community of incognito species who are large in number. These beasts the dinosaurs have entered their territory to live and had a huge fight where they have unleashed their ability to blow fire through their mouth. This power has defeated the entire troop of an incognito species.
Meanwhile in the land of the phoenixes’ the egg has just hatched and these phoenixes have not killed the dinosaurs but helped the dinosaur even cause they did not know that the dinosaurs were going to come and get over their lives by killing them, they did not know that their routine is about to vanish, they did not know that they were about to get beaten down by this mighty dinosaurs, they just know nothing.
Slowly the troop of dinosaurs were fast approaching the phoenixes’ and were fierce enough to blow any anything that comes their way. They get to have a look over these phoenixes and they huddle up to blow these up and suddenly they see a dinosaur in the group of phoenixes’ and they get more angry cause they felt that these phoenixes have captured their member and they blow off these phoenixes in one breath. When the whole fire comes to the end the dinosaur belonging to the family of phoenixes’ sees the ashes of his beloved ones and he gets angry and tries blowing the fire towards them and starts attacking them hard and these dinosaurs dodge these fires and try to convince him into theirs but he is reluctant enough to get back. Then the troop decides to get this dinosaur down as they feel that he is not belonging to their group and tries to attack but at that point the dinosaur holds back the attack.
But why would he have stopped his attack? He has stopped his attack because a body rises from the background of this dinosaur. A black misty shade of a phoenix rises and slowly all the bunch rise and attacks the group of dinosaurs and they stand tall with their head held high facing the sky with pride and power rising from the ashes of theirs they put down the reason for their ashes with out any chance for rising up against.
