Late in the Day, a WhatsApp notification came on Rajeev’s New Smart Phone. He wasn’t the most Tech-savvy but knew and cared just about enough to keep up with his generation. He was studying as his final year Exams for MBA course were near, so gave the WhatsApp notification a miss, and thought to himself that he’d check it a bit later.

After finishing his Studies for the day, He checked his phone for notifications which included 5 facebook notifications and 3 WhatsApp Messages. He quickly went through them all, only to find a strange message from an unknown number, He added the number to his safe list on whatsapp to see who actually had sent the message to him. It read, “Hey Wassup? Howdy.. Wanna Meet up again for a Movie tonight?” from a Pretty looking Female in the Display Pic, whom he had never met.

Was this a Prank by some of his Friends? What if it’s a case of Mistaken identity because his Whatsapp profile did not include a Display Pic or Name of himself, as he didn’t really care about it.. Nonetheless, He mustered up Courage beyond his Over and Above shy self to reply back politely.. “Who is this?” Soon came the reply, “Sweetheart, Its Neha, Don’t you remember we met at Mahi’s Birthday Bash yesterday..?” He again texted back “I Don’t know any Mahi or Neha? My Name is Rajeev.. I think your looking for a different person.” Neha replied “Oooopppss!! Sorry, I thought this was Farhan’s number..”

Rajeev replied “No it isn’t.” The technology created conversation ended on that note, but for a strange reason, unlike ever in the Past, Rajeev saved her number and name to his contact list and on Whatsapp too.  It was possibly her Mysterious Charm that led him to do this..

Once in the Day, he started to look at the Display Pic of This Really stunning Looking Female along with her status, but would never message her. He was a Principled Guy from a Wealthy South Delhi Based Jain Family, with Values, Traditions and Aesthetics well mixed in his system. Rajeev is a Good Looking Guy who prioritized his Studies and Work Ethics and would often not reciprocate Passes from the Opposite Sex, because he had it set in his Mind that He’d Marry the Girl his Parents approve and find for him.

Nonetheless, We may call it infatuation or intrigue, soon the daily affair of checking her rapid change of Display Pics and Status became an hourly one, He began to take more and more interest in it all. This went on for a few months, meanwhile he completed his MBA with 1st grade distinction and The Grandfather started stressing that he’s growing Old and wishes to see his Eldest and Favorite Grand Son’s Wife real soon.

 

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”~ Sarah Dessen

 

He tried to reason with his Grandfather but to no avail and soon began the search for his Bride-to-be.  Now, Rajeev with every Possible meeting of searching for his bride to be began to get anxious, he began to compare the Prospective Brides with Neha, who was now seen as His Ultimate Girl.. A Girl who was Outgoing, Respective, Funny and Outrageously Beautiful.

So, After a Few Days he mustered up the Courage to Whatsapp Message Neha. He found that his message were getting delivered but not read by her, he searched the net about what it meant and got to know that she may have blocked him. Soon, he logged to his facebook account and searched for her, sent a message to her on facebook and Friend requested too. Two days went past and he didn’t get a response or an acknowledgment of the friend request either.

Now, he was beginning to lose it as he felt that he was madly in Love with her, but knew nothing about her besides her Name and Number, she wasn’t taking his calls or replying to his Sms’s either. He lost all hope and discussed what he could do with his Best Friend, Sumeet, who suggested that he should try his Luck on Twitter too, there everything is Open unless the Profile is restricted, he installed the twitter app on his mobile and searched users with her name. He saw a girl who quite resembled Neha, with username “L_Only_Ness”, he started to follow her on Twitter, coz. Neha’s Real name was Neha Lodha, so the user id seemed to make sense.

She would only Post Random Motivational Quotes or just talk to her Close Friends. He didn’t tweet to her as this time he wanted to get a where about of her location this time and didn’t wanna get blocked. Boom came his Luck, The Very Next Day she tweeted that she’s going to watch the Iron-Man 3 at PVR Select City Walk, this was his opportunity, he picked his Luxury Sedan and headed to the Mall to try and Catch Neha there, and possibly get to see her in Real Life and Speak to her.

He Reached the Mall and began to walk across all floors to search for her vigorously, but to No Avail. Then he thought she may have started watching the Movie so Bought tickets for the Iron Man show, but the Trouble with a Wide spread Hollywood Large Film Release in a Multiplex is that u have shows running every 15-20 minutes. None the less he tried to streak in every Audi that was playing the Movie, but it was incredibly difficult to recognize her in almost filled Halls and that too with 3D spectacles on.

He decided to give the Movie a Miss and patiently waited outside near the Exit of all the Cinema Halls. 2 shows had exited and there was No Sign of Neha, amidst all this he received a Call from his Mother enquiring about his whereabouts and suggesting him to reach a particular House in Greater Kailash, as they were to have a meeting with a Family for a Prospective Bride.

He waited another 20 minutes and left the mall disappointed, somewhat resigned to his state. He began to feel that Neha was just a Fairy and he’d never really get to speak to her, leave alone marrying her. He Left for the House at the Address mentioned by his Mother, where his Parents were already waiting for him downstairs, He quickly changed his Clothes to slightly more Formal ones and redid his Hair for an Evening of yet another evening Tea come Bride searching session, ultimately whom he’d reject or request the Girl to Reject him (as the case maybe)

 

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”~ Pablo Neruda

 

His Mother tried showing him the Pic of the girl, but he told her to keep it inside because he’d meet the Girl in Person anyways now. He met the Bride’s Parents, Greeted them as the Parents sat down chit chatting.  He revolved his Neck to see who the Girl was but she wasn’t there yet, Her Parents informed that she was late from College and duly Apologized. A Little Later the Girl arrived and his Parents began to pay compliment to her, he didn’t raise his head to see her until he heard both Parents saying “Let’s Leave the Kids alone to get to know eachother better”

Before he could raise his Head, the Girl exclaimed “Rajeeeeev… Its so Good to see you, What a surprise!” He quickly rose to see who she was, only to find Neha standing in front of him.  His eyes literally lit-up by watching one of the Most Beautiful Creations on Earth for him, she showed Spark for him too. He murmured “Some Luck, I have been Born with!!” She heard that but didn’t question, The Duo soon began to converse about Studies, Interests etc. He suddenly felt the urge to tell her that He Loved Her, before he could say anything, All Heaven Broke Lose..  She said “I Love You! Will you Marry Me?” He was all pink, with Blushed strokes extensively on his Cheeks, only to recheck if he was dreaming? He quickly said, “Neha, or whetever your Name is.. Pinch me”

 

“Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it can. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it can.” ~ Nicholas Sparks

 

Neha stood Puzzled but did what he asked for. He Cross checked by looking back at her face and to his surprise it still was Neha, the Neha he Loved, the Neha he knew nothing about but was chasing since Months. He had never stalked in Life, but this Neha had made her do that too. He explained to her everything but soon after there was a knock on the Door, suggesting the Meeting should be over. He was about to get up when Neha exclaimed “Ten More Minutes mom.. Please!!”

The Parents agreed, and Neha began explaining her bit… “I Wanted to be a Model, but you know us Maru’s, the Parents never agree. The Farhan, whom I incidentally mistook for your number was a Model co-ordinator whom I had met over at a Common Friend’s Birthday” incidentally His number and Rajeev’s number were all the same barring the 98 in the start for Rajeev, whilst Farhan had 99, thus the mistake.

She continued to explain “My Father got to know around 15 odd days later that I had contacted and met Farhan, and he has those typical Marwari Businessmen attitude, he wouldn’t let me work and instead wanted me Married to an Eligible Partner in the same community, and it would be THE Husband’s choice to finally let me Work as Model or not, but as far as Dad was concerned it was a strict No-No.”

Now, Rajeev stood more Puzzled.. “How and when did you begin to Love me?” She exclaimed “Oops.. I forgot to tell you that, I fell in Love with you cause my Mom showed me Your Bio-Data and I recognized you from the number I had mistakenly whatsapp’d, Boy! Your Good Looking, cultured, well mannered and the Fact that you didn’t Jump on the texting mode to me inspite of a Girl’s inititated message, showed your Good Up-Bringing, I was impressed with that… a Lot”

“Later My Dad took a Call from Farhan on my Phone, and my Phone was confiscated for Good and replaced with a New Phone and Number along with a stern warning. I had started imagining about you as my Mother had enquired about you and was all Praise for You and Your Family.” She went on to explain that she wasn’t active on facebook coz. Her Father was on Her Friend List and would keep track/ spy her unnecessarily, thus Twitter was her choice of Weapon when it came to Social Networking. Rajeev told her that he had been following her on Twitter and had read that she was going to watch a Movie in the Day, she replied “Ya.. that was the plan but when I was starting back from my Classes, then I received the Call from my Mother that Your Parents had informed that they were coming with you today.. so I Never went for the Movie and rushed back from Naraina, where her College of Fashion designing was to her Home anticipating their 1st meeting, she got a Late because of Traffic and had to Rush to get Ready to meet her Dream Man!”

 

“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.” ~ Jane Austen

 

Everyone in The Society immensely respected Rajeev’s Grand Dad and his contribution, along with Rajeev’s Charitable Heart, Ethical workstyle and Respect envibed in his Behaviour. She had once seen Rajeev pick a Young Boy who had met with an Accident on BRT owing to a Speeding Car’s fault and how selflessly Rajeev had raised him in his arms, seated his Bloodshed Legs at the Back of His Luxury Car, without worrying about his Designer Clothes and Car’s upholstery going dirty. When she saw him doing that, she realized that this guy was not the average guy his age, and was falling in love with him every passing day in which she waited to see Rajeev, for their Pre-Marital Meeting.

*Few Days Later*

The Engagement was fixed at a Plush City Hotel, and the two of them exchanged rings and did a Ball dance together. The Beautiful Performance followed a Hug and she told Rajeev in an extremely Light tone “I Love You and will Keep Loving You all My Life..” ….

Love & Desire

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Desire is in Men a Hunger,  In Woman only an Appetite..!”~Mignon McLaughlin

 

I wanna Kiss you

And not abyss you

There aint a moment I don’t miss you

Making Love to you  isn’t just another virtue

 

What is Happiness?

What is Pleasure?

Seeing u smile is Happiness

Touching you is a Treasure

 

A Moment with you

Sexually or A Romantic Passion

The Idea is devoid & nothing new

Holding you tight is a need & Not Fashion

 

My Love isn’t Blind

The Physicality might appear though

Emotionally I am yours like a Wind

Like Without Air the Sea becomes A Dead Blue

 

In The End,

I’d like to say

“My Love is Emotional, My Love is True

Let’s Kiss and Make up for I Love You”

 

“The Natural Man has only two Primal Passions, To Get and Beget..!”~ William Osler

“I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair” by Pablo Neruda

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.

I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.

I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,

and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.”~ Pablo Neruda

This is a Story About, Karan, a Young Dynamic & Up-Coming Consultant, Living in New York.

One Day, Karan came Tired home for Dinner, after a busy round of Meetings & when he saw the Watch he saw it was 10:30 pm already. He Quickly sat on the Dinner Table, upon seeing him, his 5 Year Old son, Krish ran up to greet him & welcomed him home with the Warmest Smile..

Karan Low on Energy, quickly greeted him as he Washed his Hands & sat on the Dinner Table as the sound of the Microwave Popped.  Krish was eager to tell him about the new Words he recently learned at School. But, Karan quickly told him that he was so very Tired, so He’d hear him over the coming Sunday.

Krish, then quickly asked him how was work?, to which, Karan replied, “Its fine, my Son”. Krish quickly followed it with another question, “How much do you Earn on an Hourly Basis, Dad?”, Karan was stunned & replied, “Why do you ask that?” Krish again asked, “I want to know Daddy”, Karan quickly rebutted, “I get $50 an hour & would you now please let me Eat in Peace?”

Krish waited for him to finish the meal & asked for $20 for himself. The Father gave him the same along with a Good Night Kiss on the Cheek & went off to Sleep.

A few day Later, Krish asked his Mom, for some more money citing the reason of Buying some New Stationery. Later in the Night, he met his dad and handed him over a $50 Note! He in a self implied mood told him, “I need an hour of your time, tommorow, so Plz. come Home earlier by an Hour to have Dinner with me..”

This Simple But Loavble Story teaches us, the Value of Relations & Finding Time for Our Loved Ones in this Fast Paced Monetarily inclined World! So, PLEASE GIVE SOME OF YOUR TIME TO YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY & LOVED ONES…. Always!!

“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”~ Henry Van Dyke

A Short but Meaningful Story of Dreams…!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Story is about Three Hindu Men, Part Nomads Part Saints, who are devoted to the thought of finding God on their Search Trip across India. Obviously None of them is Earning & depend upon Whatever Food is offered to them by Virtue of Gift & at times as Alms! The Food offered to them was Rarely Lavish & Normally used to be Chapati’s (Flat Bread), Dal (Home Cooked Pulses) or Khichdi (Vegeterian Kedgeree).

One day across the outskirts of Varanasi, A Rich man saw them & came to ask for their Blessings, as he was planning to venture into a New Business, He Offered them Home Made Kheer, A Local Indian Sweet dish, relished across all genres of People in India. The Kheer was about Half a Bowl.

When the 3 Men thought of Eating it, they concluded it was too less to fulfill the tastebuds of all 3 & was infact, only enough to satisfy the Tastebuds of one of them. So they finally decided, that All 3 would sleep over & in the Morning, discuss their dreams. The One with the Most Beautiful Dream would get to eat the Kheer.

The Three of them try dozing off, but to no avail due to an empty stomach, So, in a Queer resolute, the 1st one Gets up & goes Riverside to imagine what he would tell the other 2 about his dream, in calmness & without the Noise of Snore, Soon after the 2nd one, decides to walk up the hill, to gather his thoughts & Paint his Dream beautifully, with words offcourse. The 3rd manages to sleep for a littlewhile but His Sleep is somewhat distraught too, So After a while, The 3rd one, who’s also the youngest decides to get up & when he sees that both his compatriots arent there, He in the Wake of Hunger, Eats the Kheer, wipes his face clean & puts back the Lid on the Bowl as it was & Sleeps Peacefully with a full stomach.

The Next Morning, When all three Wake up, after what seemed a Long Long Night & Anticipating to Savour the Taste of the Sweet Dish, they all sit down, do their Morning chores, Do their Prayers & sit over to discuss their Dreams…

The 1st to Narrate his Dream is the one who went towards the Riverside, He Begins “I had the Best Dream Yesternight, My Loved Deity, Ram came in my Dreams yesternight & I had the Pleasure of His Darshan, then he asked me What do you Wish my Son?.. to which I Replied, I wish to see Ayodhya & do Darshan of Sita Mata & see the Beautiful Countryside of my Beloved Deity, Shri Ram. Shri Ram said Tathastu (I Grant your Wish) and took me away to Ayodhya, where I Saw Pristine Happiness amongst the Countrymen, Hugged Brother Laxman & Bharat, and Greeted Sita Maiyya. I had such a Great time & am sure I have the Best Dream Ever.” As He Finished Narrating the Dream & Exuberantly Happy with it, he started to lean towards the Bowl of Kheer, to Grab & Eat it.

The 2nd one interrupted his Moment of Glory & said “You did Indeed have a Good Dream, but you guys Must Hear mine as it is the Best of them all”. He Further Began Narrating his Dream.. “In My Dream came the Most Enchanting & My Beloved Deity, Lord Krishna. He asked me What do you want to see?, I Replied that I wish to see His Virat Swaroop, followed by a Visit to Mathura, He Granted me the Wish & 1st showed me the Virat Roop, and then took me amidst the Gopi’s & the Serene Mathura, where I heard the chirruping of birds to Kanha’s symhony on the flute & Gopi’s dancing in a Trance to it. I had the best time ever..”

After, hearing this Narration, All eyes were at the 3rd one, He Calmly but Confidently began narrating his.. “I was awakened in my Dream by the Almighty Hanuman, the Deity I have such Strong Belief & Love for, He Woke me up & told me that He’s gonna make this Dream worth its way in Gold. Lord Hanuman, quickly blessed me & told me to Drink the Kheer, as it was full of his Vitality & Warmth, I intermittently asked that even my Friends wanted to Eat this, to which he Replied, One of them is with Prabhu Shri Ram & The Other one with Lord Krishna having the Best time of their Life, this Kheer is Paltry to the Joy they are experiencing, also, it was Blessed with Hanuman ji’s Vitality, Strength & Warmth and I was Refusing it? Hanuman ji asked me with Raised eyebrows, “Don’t you believe me??” How Could I Say No to the Almighty Wishes & thus I Drank”, Opening the Lid on the Bowl of Kheer & showing the empty Bowl…

The Remaining Two, with a Feeling of Disdain but not having an Answer to him, looked up & accepted the Order of the Day, with a Shake of the Head.  This Story teaches us the following, Being Street Smart i.e. Being Articulate & Smart enough to Manage things in a difficult situation & moving them towards one’s own advantage very tactfully & diplomatically, A Virtue quintessential to getting things done in the Current Worldly Scenario. It also Teaches us that We Shouldn’t only Dream, Dream of Action isnt Enough, Finding a Way to Paint your Dream in Reality is most important. Those who find a Way to Make their Dream a Reality are the ones who actually win, Others just keep Dreaming!! 😉 So, Dont Just Dream it.. Do It!!

ख्वाब… My Dream!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

एक ख्वाब देखा….
खाव्बों का सिलसिला सा चल पड़ा
चुनिन्दा कुछ याद है
बाकी सब धूमिल सा रह गया

स्वप्न की दुनिया भी बड़ी अजीब है
अच्छा लगे तो हर इंसान उनका मुरीद है
डर लगे तो यह हाल हो जाता है
आँख बंद करने से पहले ही एक खौफ्फ़ सा छा जाता है

कल रात का यह किस्सा है
तुम्हारे मेरे बीच का जो रिश्ता है
स्वप्न में जब तुम आये थे
ख़ुशी चेहरे पे ही नहीं आँखों में भी छलक आई थी

बेहद खूबसूरत थे वो पल जो हमनें कभी बिताए ही नहीं
वहां सिर्फ में था, तुम थे, पर कोई तन्हाई नहीं
रुक जाओ दो पल यहीं मेरे पास में
तुम्हे देख कर चैन आता है हर सांस में

लोग गहरी निंद्रा में सोते हैं तरोताज़ा होने के लिए
हम तो आजकल सोते हैं केवल आपसे रूबरू होने के लिए
कौन कमबख्त सोना चाहता अगर आप आमने सामने होते
फिर हम आँखें खुली रख के आपके संग का एक पल न खोते…

 

 

 

 

 

 

I saw a Dream..

What followed was a Plethora of it, it seems

I remember vividly a select few though

Rest everything is just Hazy & Hollow

 

The World of Dreams is Weird indeed

Love them & we remember fondly everything such is the need

When it scares it torments in such a way

Mere thought of Closing Eyes crucifies us to the bay

 

Shall I tell you Yesternight’s story bit by bit?

The Beauty of our Relationship self explains every little shift

When u came & the Room lit up it seems

Not just my face but in my eyes also it beams

 

Very Beautiful were the times we never actually spent

It was just u, just me but no sadness amen

Rest with me for a Moment without the dutiful timing

Every breath I take in your presence becomes so very refreshing

 

People usually sleep to freshen themselves up

I sleep just so to be with you smiling not wanting to get up

Which fool would have slept if u were in front of him

Wud stare without blinking just to see you, for you are my mystical sin!
