She was on her armchair, lost in thoughts, dreaming about some events, events that were linked to her but She didn't want to accept them. It was a hot chilly afternoon, no one Was at home, Old songs cassette was playing in her room ,suddenly song changed and started playing - "Jo humne dastan apni sunai, aap kyu roye. Tabaahi to hamare dil par aayi ,aap kyu roye."
she went to the veranda and started counting the rose petals.BUT WHY? It was her confusion. She was not feeling fell maybe in a some kind of depression or not getting herself. ( sometimes it happens with us also...we want something but we don't know what is that something, what to do to get that something.)
She returned back to her room and start watching her laptop.
PHONE RANG. TRING TRING .....TRING TRING..
she recognized the number instantly and picked up the phone in the last bell.
A VOICE- HI
HER- yeah hi !
( It was him. Who ? The boy ,who was in her thoughts when she was on her armchair. He was the same boy who was coming in her thoughts repeatedly when she was counting the rose petals)
PIN DROP SILENCE FOR OVER 20 seconds. And then
HIM- why were you not there?
HER - I am sorry , but I had an interview on the same day.
HIM- I was waiting for you. Not only because I wanted you to be there but also to see you with my chilling and angry eyes.
HER- My god, why are you so angry?
HIM - oh ! So you don't know why I am angry. And for your kind information I am not angry. I am just asking you a question.
( SHE STARTED MURMURING. ANGRY YOUNG MAN. EVERY TIME SUNNY DEOL ENTERS INTO HIM WHEN SHE STARTS TALKING TO HIM)
HIM- where are you? Are you listening to me?
HER- yes I am . But I have no answer of your questions.
( HE CUT THE PHONE BY SAYING THAT SOME OTHER PERSON IS CALLING HIM)
She returned to the arm chair, sat their and started thinking about the whole story. How they met in a wedding party. They became friends. Loved to eat out with each other. Talked daily on the phone. He proposed her and she said NO .ITS NOT POSSIBLE.
Proposal and denial . Proposal and denial. (Continued nearly about one year)
One day he called her and told that his marriage got fixed. It was urgent because of some family urgency. She said OK. He invited her for his wedding. She said okh I will be there definitely. But she couldn't make it due to two reasons- Her very important exam and her mind, who was not allowing her to make it happen. And at last her mind WON.
HE SAID LAST WORDS TO HER THAT IF SHE WILL NOT COME TO HIS MARRIAGE, NO NEED TO TALK TO HIM ANY MORE.
SHE UNDERSTANDS IT COMPLETELY AND DO THE SAME. SHE WANTED TO WISH HIM ON HIS MARRIAGE BUT SHE JUST SENDS A MESSAGE TO CONGRATULATE HIM FOR HIS MARRIAGE .
(Two months passed)
His cousin and that girl were good friends and this time his cousin invited the girl for her own marriage. But again some important work came in the middle of wedding and she couldn't make it.
( AFTER HIS COUSIN SISTER's MARRIAGE HE CALLED THE GIRL , THE ABOVE COVERSATION OVER THE PHONE WAS ABOUT THAT WEDDING.)
PHONE AGAIN RANG.
SHE IMMIDIATELY PICK UP THE PHONE.
HER- I am so sorry for all the things. And she said the truth. I couldn't make it to your wedding because really I didn't want to. I didn't want to face you. I didn't want to face your relatives who know me. I didn't want to repeat that 3 years conversations ,meetings, dining, fights in front of my eyes again and again. I didn't want to see you in that groom's dress. Though I had a lot to say but I have to stop here.
HIM- Its okh. But at least you could made a call to me and explaine the situation I never get angry on you.
HER- uuuhhhhhhhhhhh......... cchuupp(silence) .
( SUNNY DEOL KA GUSSA)
BOTH LAUGHED.....HAHA HAHAH HAHAHA. A lot and very loudly.
HER - SO WHERE YOU WENT FOR YOUR HONEYMOON?
.( to kha gye ghumne janab, mallika- e-khas k sath)
HIM - WHY SHOULD I TELL YOU? (Kyu btau)
ONE MORE ROUND OF LAUGH.
Said bye to each other over phone. And returned to their work.
( BOY - office work, GIRL- studies)
She got the ANSWER of her own Question.
