The Surprising Door Bell

A year later, sharp at 12:00 am the door bell rang “TING TONG, TING TONG

Meera who was busy attending the phone calls rushed and opened the door. To her daze, a middle-aged man was standing on the other side holding a Bouquet of Blossoming Red Roses, her favorite Ferraro Rocher  chocolates and eye pleasing gifts.

Thunderstruck Meera was almost about to shout : “What Daaa….” Just then she gasped, collected all the stuff and hurried towards her room. For the next few minutes she kept on gazing all the gifts, she very well knew from where it had arrived. A drop of tear rolled down her eye when she murmured –

The Best Surprise from the Best Person” ~ Rahul. His name from Meera’s lips created a beautiful echo in the void room.

Meera calmed herself and started hunting for her phone. While dialing his number, Meera thought : ‘A call after a year‘ (Although no calls were made in the entire year but Rahul’s number still was in her favorite contact list). Even before the ring could be heard, Rahul picked up the call (The most awaited phone call for Rahul).

And it was “Silence on both sides

While Meera recovered some courage to say “Hi“, Rahul as always had already taken a move. The first 3 words he spoke were

Happy Birthday Darling..!!

The lovestruck word “DARLING” after a year made Meera blush. She finally spoke “Rahul, I am overwhelmed to see how perfectly you make my day so special. Each and every small effort of yours makes me feel so grateful. Thank you so much Rahul

Rahul replied : “Meera, this is the day I was waiting for since a year

The conversation then started and continued for hours and hours. They discussed about each and every bit of their past One year and also how much they missed each other. Loud laughter, tears of joy  and constant chitchat continued from both the sides. Clock ticked 9:00 am and when the rays of sun lighted the city, they realized they were already late for their moronic office.

Just before they were about to hung the phone, Rahul asked : “Meera, can we please meet today evening, at the same coffee shop ?

Meera (desperately wanted to meet him) : Within no seconds she replied “Yes Rahul, sharp at 7 pm

With grin on their lips and blush on their cheeks, the phone call ended.

P.S : Some relations demand time.. 

 

 

 

Are you suffering from Mid 20 trauma??

One more elegant Wedding to attend and I want to escape. These days my most awaited dream makes me feel tearful. Ever since I was in college, I wanted to be the most charming bride. I always used to visualize my wedding with the glitters, the bells, white orchids, glamorous decoration, appetizing food, wedding dance, friends, relatives and so on. But today I am scared with everything that’s happening around me.

Before I narrate my situation, let me introduce myself I am Ria Sharma, 25 years old and a girl who per society should have been having kids at this age. Like every other girl of my age I am the most eligible candidate for …

You might be wondering eligible for Job???

So, let me break your hunch.

Not eligible for job but the most Eligible candidate for Marriage.

Nowadays, every third person whom I meet has just one topic to discuss about me:

When will I get married?

Why am I rejecting every boy?

Have I already found someone? and many more…

Sometimes I don’t understand what’s wrong with everyone? Is marriage the last thing for any girl/boy of my age? Can’t they have a life of their own?

There’s nothing like I don’t want to get married but till the time comes why can’t I just be the way I used to be.

“A free bird flying in her own sky and just relishing her life on her own terms.”
By now, I have realized it’s not that simple. We live in a society where some predefined rules have been just stamped and it will be the same. Although few things still can be changed but everything demands time and patience which we as young blood often tend to lose.

 Currently we might feel the phase is just getting worsened every day. What we desire is just moving out of our league. We start feeling pessimistic about everyone’s opinion around us. There’s nothing wrong in having such thoughts but at the same time we should not forget to live in the moment.

Each phase of life has its own beauty, we might not be happy with what we are in currently but this might turn up to be a beautiful memory once conquered. This phase might team up with a little pressure, some arguments might lead to havoc, some disappointments might lead to pain but we must understand everything is just temporary. This is not the End of Life..!!

It’s a journey of miracles, you never know which might turn up to be a Life Changing One..!!

So all the beautiful young souls out there, “Just Relax, Slow Down, Breathe, Enjoy and Cherish it..!!”

The Coffee House..!!

The early evening lull had come to the streets, that silence between the frenetic commuters and the vibrant party seekers. The bars and clubs were jammed with loud music and energized mob, the only visible life being the coffee-house that teemed with diners, chatting, relaxing after a busy day.

All the glossy wooden tables were lightened up with conversations, laughter and coffee mugs except the one. There was sheer silence on the table situated in one corner of the coffee-house. Meera 24-year-old innocent and charming girl, Rahul 26-year-old smart and young boy both sat across the table, this was not a regular meeting for them. There was lot that they wanted to speak but there was hush between them which spoke a lot. While both were waiting for each other to initiate, the silence was broken by the café waiter.

 After placing the order, Rahul started recalling some old coffee meets with Meera when they used to do the craziest things. The coffee-house was the place where they had confessed their love on 26th December 2014. Ever since then the journey had been wonderful for them apart from the last 6 months. Things had apparently changed between them since last 6 months, when they were miles apart. Rahul had been transferred to Chennai from his job and Meera was in Mumbai. Within six months, they faced major understanding issues and they had realized that love was not enough for a lifelong relationship. All this months had been tough; trust issues had risen and had ended up into weeks of fights. Ego which never existed had grown between them. And one morning they decided to finally meet and end it for it had created a mess in their life and today was the day when they had decided to meet. Both being in the crucial age of their life, decided for being practical and not moving ahead. They knew the broken heart could not be lashed again.

When Rahul recalled each memory that they shared tear rolled down from his eye, Meera placed her hand over Rahul’s hand. From the day they met they were madly in love. There was respect, care, love, fights, friendship, understanding and everything that an ideal relation needed. They never had thought that distance would be the actual test of their relationship.

While both sipped a sip of coffee Meera uttered: “How Strange it is Rahul, even though we were madly in love and everything was just like a fairytale but still we have to depart”. To this Rahul spoke nothing but held her hand tight enough. He knew this was the last time and he just wanted time to stop for a while. They kept on recalling their memories and talked for hours and hours.

Clock ticked 11:00 pm and the waiter arrived and informed that they were about to close the coffee-house for the day. Rahul and Meera who were lost in their own world, dint even realize what the time was. Rahul paid the bill and they walked out of the Coffee house.

“That’s it we have to depart” Rahul spoke in grief.

Rahul pulled Meera close to him and hugged her for the final time. “The warm and cozy hug will be missed”-Meera murmured.

And Finally, they departed with a smile on face and tear in eyes and with a hope of meeting again in the Journey of LIFE.

P.S : Love touches us in the most significant way and leaves us in the most painful way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because the Wait never Ends..!!

It’s been 4 years 38 minutes ever since we departed ways he uttered in his mind.

It all started on the first day of their college. She stood out of her lavish car perfectly dressed in a white shirt and a denim jeans. A dusky girl with black shining hair and a fright in her eyes. In a mob of hundreds her eyes seemed to find someone, someone who could hold her hand and make her feel that everything is going to be fine. And it was the time when he had already fallen for her.

From being classmates and exchanging notes, they became friends. Within no time they turned up to be best friends. Somewhere down the lane there was something between them, something which they dint spoke about, but they knew they had started loving each other.

With passing months, they confessed their feelings for each other. Her madness and his maturity made them the most adorable one’s. Their relation was like a river, calm and deep. Everything just appeared to be perfect, things changed only when the college ended. They knew long distance would be a challenge for them and that they had to face it.

They tried to fight against the physical distance but it wasn’t so easy as they had expected it to be. Soon daily messages and video calls turned into a blue moon call. They realized it wasn’t subtle, the charm had flown far away. He was still hopeful, for him she was the first and the last girl that he could ever dream his life with.

The real storm hit their relation when she decided to quit. For her love wasn’t enough, she loved him but she knew that it was not enough for a life long togetherness. He never asked her to give a try .Deep inside he knew that the wound cannot be healed.

Today, when all the memories gush in his mind, his heart still has a hope.

A Hope of loving her all again,

A Hope of holding her hands,

A Hope of never departing again….

And to that he kept on saying : “I love her, and that’s the beginning and end of everything

~Love Forever..!!

A Heartfelt letter from a Daughter to her Father.

To the First LOVE of my Life – My Dad…

Dad, from holding me in your arms and making me walk you have always been around me. When I think about my childhood, I hardly can recall few memories but still my face lights up with a sparkling smile because I know I was always given more than I deserved. 

Dad today if I stand in this world it’s all because of your support and your confidence in me. I still remember how you stood beside me, when I struggled to gain my balance while learning how to ride bicycle. By the time when you realized I was able to balance, you insisted to remove those training wheels. And when I rode perfectly without falling, you jumped up in glee and shouted “Yay! My baby you did it”.

Dad, i know i was not an easy child to deal with. My all demands from a small chocolate to the most expensive doll were always fulfilled. You were the person, who always saved me from getting punished even if I was wrong. On my 12 Boards you were in fright more than me. I still remember how you continuously chanted prayers for my board results. And when the results were out, you happily told about it to everyone. When I was on the cusp of choosing a career, you held my hand and told me to do what I wanted to. I was not even strong enough to think about my career but it is you who guided me in the right direction.

I remember first time when I stepped out of your shelter for graduation, you guided me so well with all norms of the outside world. At that time, I know I just disregarded all your advice. I was in my teen, and was just so excited to enjoy the new phase of life. But soon I realized taking your advices lightly was my stupidity. The day I got my first job, I remember you proudly telling everyone about it even though it wasn’t a fancy one.

Dad, I could not even realize how my innocent childhood turned into fright. With passing years, I now can understand how difficult it is to survive in this world. There are people in this world who always hold their eyes on me, they always try to let me down, they wait for me to fail, they try to suppress me, and they try to break my confidence. But above all this I know there is one person in this world who can save me and it’s you, DAD.

The journey of my Life would never had been on right track if you did not ride it. Dad today I won’t wish for something but rather I would request you – “Dad, hold me tight enough, save me from the world, for I,  your daughter, does not want to grow up anymore”. I still want to be your little cranky daughter. All I know is I just want to be in your shelter. I know you are the only one person who would be beside me when this world would wave off. Your one look gives me confidence to face this world, your smile flings my tears away, and your warm hug makes me feel secured.

You were, you are and you will be my Prince forever. I always want to be Apple of your eye. Don’t let your daughter go away, for she is nothing without you.

Love,

Your Princess

Magical Feeling : Love

Love I desire…

To the love I desire often fantasizes me and leaves me with a tint smile.
It makes me feel shy, it makes me feel secured, it makes me possessive, it leaves me with goosebumps.

Far away from the noisy world, I discovered a whole new world. The first beam of sunlight flashed across the sky. The green grassland appeared like a green ocean. Chirping of birds created a melodious harmony. I suddenly felt a tender touch on my hand.Butterflies rolled in my stomach.My heart pumped fast like it never pumped before. To my glance I could see YOU. I could see your smile. I could feel your affection towards me.

Holding my hand, you took me to a  world free from rabble and heebie jeebies. We walked in the deep forest, silence everywhere and just two of us. Indeed the most pleasant walk with you. The light breeze rolled hair over my face. You gazed at me and gently waved off hair from my face. My hands turned icy cold and the world paused for a while. I never felt such before.By then, I knew i was in Love with you. I could feel happiness everywhere. I could hear violin playing in my heart.Everything seemed like a fairytale.

But..

Suddenly the brash street woke me up. Ah!! I realized it was just a Dream.

You are still a dream for me but my heart races fast when I think about YOU.

Love is fantasy,
Love is adoration,
Love is endearment,
Love is passion,
Love is sensation,
Love is devotion.

Love is a pleasant melody that would play in real one fine day…
