i think, i just got lucky :) (Part-2)



It was a sunday morning...i woke up at 7....so there was a big day ahead. Finally i left my place at 9... it was friendship day…so,  i was going to see Delhi haat with my friend Arti and her boyfriend Sameer... Have always heard so much about it...was dying to see...


Entering in there was a totally different experience...wow...what a place...with so much art and craft...so much to be admired.


 There were different shops for different states, dispaying their finest work. after a few hours, We  finally decided to treat ourselves... we settled for the south Indian….

we  were waiting for our meals  when a small boy came to me, and gave me a small box…I asked him about it…he just smiled and ran away….

We were shocked, but like every other girl,I love the gifts,(and the best thing about gifts are- unwrapping them,without any hint, about what it could be) there were so many thoughts rushing in and out of my mind…
what if it’s a bomb(but its so small and cute ;)
what if its for someone else???
Finally it was totally unwrapped and there was a small yellow bottle key chain(smallest I have ever seen),and there was a small stick inside it…I was looking at it in amazement …Sameer took it from my hand…and after looking at it for a few sec said-“Shalini, who is Avinash”?
I don’t know what he was talking about…so looking at my stupid expression he gave me back my gift…and I saw…in that yellow bottle was a rice grain, not a stick…and my name was written on it….
And Sameer rolled the bottle….now we can see the other side of the grain…and there it was written-“AVINASH”
I was shocked, and then out of nowhere he came in front of me….
And our conversation was somewhat like this-
Shalini-WHAT?????????? What are you doing here? and What is this???
He just smiled  
(But this time I was more shocked then amused.)
Avinash-“”hey…how are you? Well I am also quite shocked…wherever I go…you are there?
Are you following me??””
(And then he smiled again….)
(I cooled down a bit…
And smiled….)
Shalini-“Hey…that’s my line…okay?? :)
Avinash-“okay ji , whatever you say, 
you liked the present???”
Shalini-“yup! its wow…. But why????"
Avinash- "aah…. i was here with my friends…and I saw you.… and i had this thought-we have met twice…and the only thing I know about you is your name…and today is friendship day…why shouldn’t we both have a new friend today?? And this was the best gift I could get for my friend” 
Shalini- “well that’s really sweet…but are you trying to impress me?? ;)
Avinash- “naah… if you want I can have it back…but there’s a problem…” 
Shalini-“What problem??”  :O
Avinash-(taking out a similar key-chain from his pocket) ” I have an exact copy…what will I do with both J”
Shalini- “What?? You do the same for every girl you meet??”
Avinash-“well, no whenever I meet a girl…I get one of this type…and gift that to her…but this is the first time, have got a copy for myself”
(I had no idea what to say)
 Shalini- "Delhi has population of 1.67 Crore…and still out of all these people…we met thrice…are you really following me?"
Avinash-"naah… but I would love to… " and then his friends came,he introduced us,and we asked them to join us
And they did… 
And this was amazing….he has just finished his MBA and has joined his father’s business.
We exchanged our email ids and left 
Not even 5 minutes have passed, and I got a ping on my bb. 
He has mailed-“Nice meeting you thrice” 
And I replied-“pleasure is all mine ;)”

As they say, When something has been planned, it happens at any cost , no wonder what so ever the constraints are


Shalini, even in her rarest dreams, would have never thought to conversate with Avinash, who happens to be a mere alien , somebody that crossed her way in the most unimagined way...

In a worldly place that is jam-packed with over 1.7 crore people
- where every second guy appears to be a stranger
- where the life scrolls faster than the speed of light
- where every individual just do not have time to look around
- where every 2 km you find the rarest range of strangers

Such things happened... And they continue to happen everyday
Delhi seems beyond the imaginations....

And i am blabbering again :)

Looking at yourself, have you ever felt like, this is not what you wanted to be. Like ever. And here you are standing in front of the mirror, looking at your face, thinking - is this really me now? Do i have to cope with this person like forever?
Can I like exchange somewhere?


Looking at the kids around, they have so much on their mind, they have hopes, dreams. They also look at the movie stars/celebrities and hope that they would live lives like them. Their on screen characters leave a mark on our just-blossomed hearts and minds.
What we do not know till then is  that the biggest fight, disappointment, inspiration they will get from themselves.


I have always wanted to be the free spirit person, living my life on my terms, not caring about anyone around, their opinions. I thought i would draft a new bucket list every year and complete it all up by November, so that i can think about more and more. And get over with all the crazy, stupid stuff by the End of this life. And what am i doing?…

Something new....

Aaah.... Guess what today i thought about several things that i want to share with you people... But i realized this needs a break...

There must be something worth writing... ;p

Was reading a novel-
In between some arguement
And the hero asks heroine- what do you want me to do?

Her reply- "i don't know".


And i wasn't able to stop myself.... I was laughing out aloud....
Truely said-how could a guy understand what his girl wants..when she herself has got no idea....
Funny but true..
Well if some guy writes this on his facebook wall...i will be so-so angry... I may even shout....what the hell these guys think...

Hehe
But i know its true...i mean...we girls always know what the other person expects... What we should do...

But we are seldomly sure about what we want...
;) may be because...since early days of our lives....we keep everyone else before us....so have lost contact with ourselves...
;)

Love,jags

just a thought...

I guess the best thing i learned till today...is that - if you feel bad...you have a war going on inside your head, you are not sure about the next step you will take...or where your life is going...where you will be , the very next day...or a week later or what you will do...So what if sometimes you feel that things are wrong...nothing is working out the way you suggested... still you will be fine...You will live by all this... many-many similar days are waiting for you...Big dreams and even bigger problems are being positioned by the almighty , just to add a little adventure...But you will live ...It will all be fine in the end...
Just be yourself...and see how beautiful a person you are... Just smile...may be just to practice it...
Because even if...today your smile is a little tired and sad...tomorrow it will be happy...real and satisfying... Life is not about a moment...or a day...or a week...not even a year... Its about the whole...its about you... :)
