Courage

womenThe lawyer showed the judge her earlier snaps. A beautiful and confident young lady the snaps portrayed. The girl in the snap was standing in front of him.
Speechless she stood. They spoke everything. The Cuts on her hands. The Bruises on her beautiful slender frame
Uneven blemish and white complexion.The Swelling under her eyes. Burnt cigarette marks on her face
She dint needed any proof to prove she was a victim of domestic violence.
Thought of ending this suffering penetrated her mind the day when he slapped her repeatedly for throwing his wine bottles. She was always conquered with fear. It took her a while to realize:
“You don’t need people, arms, ammunition in battle of life
but you need hell lot of courage to stand against the wrong”

A Tiny Thing

There it lay on mirror. Silent. Calm, yet sparkling and beautiful as if it was meant to be there. It added more and more beauty to the Owner who recklessly or may be unknowingly left it there. It competed with sparkles of her bangles those were busy in competing with the chords of guitar to make melodious noise. It competed with sparkles on the Lehenga she wore that stopped shining when the light effect faded away. The tiny thing did its job perfectly. It was as slender as her body frame and as bright as her face. It distinguished her from the other girls at wedding.

After the wedding was over she washed her face and hurried to be home. But left it behind. May be for me. To relive the moments, to relive her aura, to relive the noise of her bangles, to relieve her smile. So what if it is a tiny thing, so what even if the remaining thing is a little ‘bindi’ from her forehead.

Our foolish heart are searching for life in tiny fragments objects while ignoring the living being itself. Emotional ties hold on to bits and pieces of one’s belongings but failing to express emotions to person themselves.

PS: post is inspired bcoz of my Mom, who visited me recently and left her Bindi on the wash basin mirror.

“May I” he asked. She nodded.
Soon they were on the dance floor. Nature too wanted them together they thought, hence even the sky tinted itself with purple hues similar to the couples outfit.
They were enjoying salsa moves. Her fiery turn, his soothing hold. Her loud expression his calm variations. Complementing each other with every step and every move.
With a sharp inner turn she lost her balance and slipped, from stilettoes to ground.
He lifted her up by holding her in his arms. Completed the turn and tried ending up their performance perfectly. Everyone around applauded…
Falling is part of journey.. But re-rising and shining again together is what life is..

Her stilettoes lay somewhere on dance floor.. with no regrets of falling.. but embellished with love more than ever… a bond stronger more than ever..

“The Dance was incomplete but their Life wasn’t.”

Haunting Regrets

alone boy in road

Having you in my life was just like a dream coming true. But as they say ‘when you easily get what you want, you lose its value’..
I tasted success like anything. I always thought, someday I would reach a peak were we will have all the world’s riches with us… and then we can spend time together… but I was blind to see that success is never quenching thirst. You wanted to have a talk, but I choose to have talk with Clients… you wished we dine together, but I choose dinner with delegates… you wished to share your thoughts, but I choose sharing knowledge in conference… I choose everything else assuming you are going to be there…

but time has passed away… today speechless, lifeless u lay in bed… And I am in trauma here to seek a chance to live with you… All the worlds riches are lying at my feet, but they can’t take me to the place you are gone… I am connected with all the Clients, Delegates but none of them is feeling the pain… ‘I have heard Life awards everyone with a second chance’… I could have had a second chance to convince my clients, delegates.. I could have had a second chance for sharing my knowledge… but I had only one chance to live my life with you, which I already lost..

And here I am left with nothing but Haunting Regrets

He gave her Butterflies

girl-looking-at-boy-in-classHe was her crush from school days..
His absence made her shiver and so did his presence… his one glimpse gave her goose bumps… she would blush with his stare.. Sitting in the classroom of 100 students, and eagerly waiting for him to be in class.. hungry eyes desperately watched the entrance door.. and finally when he arrived, butterflies would run in her tummy, and she turned away every time so that he won’t notice her… the game of hide and seek continued in the high school…

Today they met accidentally… after so many years… they drifted apart wid formal greeting… but there was a moment when she still had butterflies… she was wondering, she was amazed with the “undefined relationship of butterflies

Valuable Possessions

lonely_man

He was facing the harsh truth of mankind. A week back he learnt about the sudden disappearance of the ship in which she was travelling. But as they say hope has no cure… Everyday he would visit the rescue office in a hope that someone might have rescued her… Ironically he was alive for her and was dying a bit every day when the officers would inform him “Hard Luck”. He always reminisced  the moments when they were together.. how they planned the interiors of their home, the coffee in the balcony, the fight over bedroom wall paint… her wardrobe reminded him.. how beautiful she looked in the pink saree.. The red ghagra choli reminded him their wedding day.. but he was left with nothing but just her thoughts.. her thoughts were only his valuable possessions.

Departure

wallpaper-with-an-old-man-on-bench-in-a-park“I will be fine”, he said… “How are you dear? How is your job going on?”, he enquired in a voice that was hardly understood.. She replied “I am fine.. will visit u soon.. Plz take care”
Lying on the bed was something unusual about him.. He was always full of energy, enthusiasm.. A smiling face, A loving husband, A caring dad, A nurturing Grandpa… He played all the roles perfectly throughout his life.. But his body surrendered to the passing time.. and there he lay lifeless yet with a glow on his face..
Her Dad called her, informing his “Departure”

She was shocked.. She was recalling the moments.. last time they spoke, last time they met, the day when he carried her to the hospital in his arms when she met accident, the days when he used to take her to the school, the days he bought her tiffin every time she forgot, the days when everyday he bought her the berries despite of her mother criticise… n number of moments were flashing in front of her eyes… but the time was gone..
There was a hustle-bustle in her mind.. She wished to have a talk wid him .. May be a Final Talk.. She wished to borrow few moments from God.. to live those little moments with him.. to let him know how much she loved him.. to express her gratitude for the pain he took for her upbringing… to show him that his granddaughter cares for him way to much..

Should we really wait to express ourself until someone dies?” she thought

Thinking girl

Existence

She was finding very little time for herself from the day he entered her life.. She hurriedly tied the bathrobe and unlocked the bathroom very carefully without making any noise… she dint want to wake him up
He was suffering with cold from last night and had a restless sleep… she also spent a sleepless night with him..
she went close to him and ran her fingers through his hairs.. he smiled in sleep.. his smile is so contagious she thought.. every time he smiles, she smiles too..
she thought of leaving him alone so that he wont be disturbed because of her… but he woke up  and curled himself around her arms…
A tear rolled down her cheek.. what was it she thought… a moment before she smiled and the other moment tears in her eyes…
His existence in her life, was something which gave meaning to her existence… which made her life complete… She was Enjoying the little moments of her Motherhood

Awaken Again

abcdShe was Awake. Her eyes Red, Puffy by now. Her body moving back and forth with each tear that rolled down her cheek.. Enduring the emotional pain that engulfed her. Her blanket was wet stain with endless tears. Her mind wandering with pain thinking of him and the infinite questions.. Did he really cheat me? or M i Interpreting him wrong? Is there some other reason.. N number of questions penetrated into her mind by each passing moment. But some were she knew how much he loved her..

Her world of grief was distracted by the ringing doorbell. Somehow gathering all the leftover strength she opened the door. There was his Secretary at the door step in a knee-length black skirt, high neck light blue woolen top, a smiling face with little blush on the cheeks, a dusky brown lipstick offering her a beautiful yet professional looks .  “Mam, I am here to collect Laptop, Sir is supposed to leave out-of-town urgently. Would you please accompany me with his Travelling bag to Airport “she uttered. A lightning stroked her mind, she nodded and left to get his stuff. The laptop screen while packing reflected her crinkly hair, lifeless eyes, a shabby look.

She was accompanied by jealousy to her room, Is his Secretary the one.. She was determined to clear the matter now. She dressed up herself in a white one piece, tied her hair in a French bun, and applied a cherry red gloss that gave her rosy lips a buoyant look. Gorgeous she looked. But her reflection in mirror was not pleasing her. Something was missing she thought. She hurried and left with his travelling bag and laptop. On the way, in the rear view car mirror, she observed his secretary and herself again, blush was something she missed. The war of thoughts continued in her mind.

The car stopped, but it was not the airport she noticed. Connaught Place she wondered.. Before she could ask secretary about airport, there he was, he opened the car door for her.. she was surprised to see his party dress.. he escorted her to the party room. The party room front wall had text written “Happy Anniversary” with her name in bold.. she was astonish to see her parents, her in-laws, her friends. The party continued… with friends, relatives, parents, in-law’s… food, desserts, drinks. And then began the dance.

All the couples were on the floor including them. The lights were dim now. The silent romantic music was on. He wished her “Happy Anniversary Darling” and then he offered her a gift which was tagged with “Missing Her” she opened it. It was beautiful digital frame with their pic with text i miss u every moment. Be with me forever

Everything she learnt from previous night made sense.. There she melted. She felt sorry for her interpretation but she was Awaken again. She was awaken with Love.. Now was not the time to apologize but to live the moment. The most precious moment.. The front mirror reflected her face which was more bright than ever.. she noticed the charm, the blush was back on her face again.. Nothing was missing now.. a tear rolled down her cheek.. he wiped the tear… they embraced.. The background music played.. “I can be your hero baby… I can kiss away the pain… I will stand by you forever… You can take my breath awaythisone

Awaken

breakup1It was raining heavily. The rain droplets falling from the window railings were sparkling because of street lights.
He picked up the falling drops and sprinkled on her face, she shivered and curl herself around his arms.. he with wide grin soothed her.. she felt his warmth..
A lightning strikes. And she is awaken from her sweet romantic dream.. Ohhh… She grins. What a sweet dream it was she thought.
she rubs her sleepy eyes.. and finds him in deep sleep on the adjoining sofa, with the laptop and all office papers surrounded..

Always his smirk smile had drawn her crazy, .. she leans forwards to arrange his papers.. carefully she removed them…
Turning the other side he grabbed hold of her hand “Love u Darling” he uttered and fell asleep again…
You Naughty she exclaimed..:) and removed her hand and rapped the blanket around him..

He even dint shutdown the laptop.. My Lazy Hubby she thought… she was closing all the applications one by one… the mailbox was still open…  
Her attention was caught by the meeting request’s subject lined as “Tomorrow @ Connaught Place”.. she got suspicious thoughts in her mind..
The second mail she saw was subject lined “Missing Her” .. she dint even read the mail.. She was now turning Red and losing Temper..
Third Mail subject lined “Connaught Place: Additional Arrangements Done” she was now completely taken aback…
she felt like crying anything… scolding him.. what was wrong with him she thought…
several thoughts occupied her mind.. is this the real Reason of he being late.. but whyyyy…
has he lost interest in me… is he really seeing someone else…
she was now “Awaken”..

The rain drops outside were silent now.. but her heart was crying aloud….

To be continued…

P.S.S: First Part for He and She

The Little Stone

boy and girlMillions of stars were twinkling in the sky.. Full Moon looking splendid in the dark sky..
they were leaving for home after the college fresher party.. as usual he was supposed to drop her as it was late..
Gorgeous she looked in the red Saree.. her Dangles embellished with beads added more and more beauty .. a reddish gloss made her lips look rosy.. the pinkish blush on her cheeks glowed and added a shining effect to her  face..
He was looking handsome too.. in well dressed Armani Suit.. which she borrowed for him from her elder bro.. a classy rimless eyeglass made his features look more and more sharp..

they were Friends from past 7 years.. though with opposite nature.. she is studious, he hardly studies
she completes his assignments, when he is out practising for football match
she is scared to even look at some random guy, and he every time dates a new girl (Girls.. :P)
but still they were good friends…

while walking her home,she teased him “which one, among the girls u were flirting with was more attractive hmm?” He punched her “Do you thing only one?” It was an array of girls.. they giggled, she dint noticed the little stone on her way and fall down.. her stiletto was no longer with heels now.. she was hurt.. blood oozed  from wound.. he was taken aback by the sudden incident.. he hurriedly pulled out his handkerchief and cleaned the blood.. he was feeling guilty that he wasn’t able to held her.. his glooming face was suddenly nervous and worried.. “It is all right, just a little wound, I am fine” she said.. “It’s not alright, I should have been cautious, I am supposed to take u home safely, i am such an idiot, I am lost in my world how could I be such a fool” he said, “Hey.. its ok.. how r u supposed to know were the rocks are placed on the way haan? 😛 😛  and don’t be too hard on urself.. its ok” she said

She was surprised by his attitude, a little wound and Y he is so worried and nervous she thought, “Y r u so worried?” she asked, he said nothing, and was busy cleaning the wound, “r u gonna tell me or shall i fight with u, again, which I don’t want to, it’s so pleasant atmosphere here and u r worried abt the little wound” she said.. “Would you stop ur non-sense and can u plz check for a band-aid if u have in ur handbag, its late and even thr r no medical shops in the vicinity” he said.. “have u gone mad, it’s a little wound” she said “Oh really, what if u have fallen down on ur head, or what if it would have resulted in some fracture or I don’t know ny crap” he yelled, “I can handle myself ok, I don’t need you” she yelled and started to get-up but again fall down, she recognized the ligament pain then.. “Dont freak out, its fine” she said..

she was astonished to see tears in his eyes, “Why … ..” before she could complete the sentence he said ” I care for u idiot, its my responsibility to protect u, because I Love U” she was Shocked, mesmerized, stunned,  dumbfounded.. she was not aware how to react .. what to utter .. should she start dancing or just break down in his arms… all the emotions were just moving to and fro in her mind..
her eyes were speaking more than her lips… he could see the stars were twinkling and running down one after other from her eyes.. the full moon had more glaze or her face he thought.. millions of stars were twinkling in her eyes or sky he wondered.. the blush on her cheeks was more pinky than ever… she blessed the little stone for making her experience the most beautiful feeling in world.. for making her fall in love 🙂 🙂

Infinite

infinityTravelling back home was not great for her today… everything surrounding her was annoying her… in the local, many brushed her and apologized, many of them pushed, many of them crushed her feet without even noticing.. she travels daily.. a routine experience..  but it was not her day she thought.. everything irritating.. the sound of crying baby, the noise of rails, the chatter of the women’s.. the jokes of guys.. the horn of bikes… were just bothering her..  infinite world around…

the journey was too long she thought… with him she always found it like they just travelled for a min.. but each passing sec today was killing her.. she was finding them as years n years.. she was finding herself in a rush to reach home… she was choked.. but compose herself when she was at outskirts of her station… she walked hurriedly as if some one was following her.. someone was haunting her.. though she knew what it was…

soon she was home.. she closed the door.. “So finally we broke up” she reminded herself…
she splashed some water on her face.. freed her tight pony tail.. n then the episodes began in her mind again.. how he like her free-flowing hairs.. she was trying hard not to think of him.. she went 2 make coffee for herself.. she started pouring the hot coffee in the mug.. again she remember the day when he gifted the mug to her.. she went to change and made herself comfortable in the pink night-dress.. suddenly she heard a voice ” you pinky lover.. come out of d pink fever” she looked around but no one in the room.. his smile, his talks, his laughter, his anger, his looks and he himself were haunting her.. everywhere..

she eased herself in bed and broke down.. his infinite thoughts were invading her…
what was Infinite she thought  “the world around her or the world of her mind with his infinite thoughts everywhere

Opportunity

The girl and the cat beauty photography
There she was in the showroom, to get a perfect footwear for herself

The showroom attendant bought all the possible footwear pairs… as per her requirements,
She tried the first one.. it was perfect in all means: color, size, design embellished with beads, pure leather.. everything perfect..
She thought she will finalize it.. but suddenly her eye was caught by the other footwear boxes the attendant bought…

a thought striked her mind, that y she shouldn’t try the rest..
she asked the attendant to show the rest footwear, and she was trying them one by one
she tried n tried..
she asked him to bring some more footwear in a hope that she may get the best
the rest footwear were good enuf but her mind was caught by the first one
seeing her confusion and anxiety, the door attendant replied
Mam, it’s not necessary to try all things out and then select the best, life may award you the best at first sight 🙂 , you just need to recognize it, who knows you may get the opportunity in future or not

Dis-Connected

flower

Here v are… Like every youngster online on Facebook, whatsapp, blogging sites and all other social networks… In a race to stay connected… to check which place  friends have visited, to check thr pics, to check if thr DP has 3 digit likes, to check who has engaged and who r suffering from breakups, to figure out if someone has switched her job blah blah blah… u knw v r connected wid d whole World…

Though V r not aware that ve have to pay the Internet bill… we use it like nything… and we do find ourself in jeopardy when we dont even find the Paper bill and the email is nyways gone… V r dis-connected by d service provider na ;).. n v do approach a cyber café to pay d bill.. but we begin with Facebook only.. u knw.. it’s so hard to get Dis-connected 😛 😛

Here is He and She, he sends her friend request, She accepts it, n then begins the story… Chat n Chat N Chat then  Video Chat goes on n on n on..they r happy.. n they plan to meet.. n whn they meet they find nothing to talk abt.. something they find missing.. both of them r not connected emotionally but they r connected.. “virtually” very well.. 🙂 🙂 but they make themselves comfortable u knw thr r lot of

friends on whatsapp to stay connected.. though they within themselves are dis-connected. 😛 😛 ( by d way d cycle continues on whatsapp tooo 😛 :P) v open whatsapp and ask  our friend to get the latest episodes of “How I Met your Mother” without forgetting, however v do forgot to get medicines, to get vegetables, to get clothes from laundry whenevr our Mother asks us…  V plan a hang out with Friends to hav a break from work, but forget to inform Mother that “plz don’t cook food for me today”, and she never has a break from her work.. R v really connected??

we have our friend groups created on whatsapp where v plan 2 meet, to enjoy, to share smile, hugs, work-life, love-life, irritations.. and v do meet.. we start wid a good chitter chatter but the bell of whatsapp keep on disturbing ,ringing… and v keep planning wid d other group for another get together… n d cycle continues thr as well.. hai na???

How much time do we really spend on the internet? On Facebook? On blogs? Twitter, Tumblr etc.. Its adds up to a large part of our day.. I tried actually disconnecting for a few days and indeed ended up in doing some meaning work as was always throwing it off since I was “Busy” 😛 😛 cleaning my room, getting my new dresses altered, organizing my shelf etc. (Believe me my Mom and I spent a good time while doing this.. I was actually Connected ) We may encourage getting Disconnected for a while. Not completely, Not Forever…Just a while.
