He and she to “They”: Out of the ordinary

Love is what you never understand
Logic has its own purview. It tries hard to reach its maximum. But she was beyond limit to reach. An apologia for reason to love was beyond her power to conceive. She was too pure to dilute and he was too strong to resist. And they were too complicated to decipher.

She said, “Life is too short to wait for things to happen. It calls for today and give tomorrow its space.”
He said, “Call for action is nothing without a definite day after today. You cannot climb another step if you don’t know the last one.”

They kept on talking. They kept the silence alive too. They were opposites in true sense and nonetheless attracted.
One day, they were walking over the sand on the beach. The sun was about to set. The sky was displaying different colors of red. And so was the conversation between the two.

“Love is just one feeling. Heart has its own boundaries. A whip is needed to make the horse reach its destination beyond boundaries.” said he.
“Infinity is answer to all the limits. Be it love, be it passion. The whip never comes from outside, it’s in your perception.” she replied with glowing eyes.
"Practicality reasons for trigger." he reacted immediately.
"Sustainability reasons for appreciation" she told with same fervor.

The battle was never ending. It started from nowhere and hence sought no end.   
You search for results when you have a question. They never had that. They never will have. It was just about their way to explore.
She believed in perfection with satisfaction. He was on continuous peregrination of perfection. For him, setting the goals and reaching the epitome worked as activator. Always, for anything.

They were near, they were apart. The bond they shared was not easy to comprehend. They complimented each other with aggression and passion. No one was ready to put down the sword. They were at war continuously. They were in love forever. 

They called for action to other’s passion,
They called for reaction to reach the real reason...
They held the hand of love too strong to break,
They got hooked to their true self with other’s vision to brace..
They were too near they were too far,
They were too difficult to be dealt hence to surpass..

Ms. Ordinary

She was walking down the lane. Tears were rolling down her eyes to the cheeks. She was trying to fight hard with them, to stop them but she couldn’t. There is always a limit.

That day, she was really happy. After all she has made her way across the first hurdle towards her success. Her words were dipped in emotions and her emotions in purity. She made the people knew about her existence with her talent and hard work. She always wanted to mark her presence with her work and today she was toward it. No matter how small it was for the world, but that was really big for her. Her words were getting recognition. Her thoughts were making impressions on other’s mind. Her first poem “The attitudinized individuals” was acclaimed for its essence; not just by the colleagues, the poetry fraternity but also by the common people. The number of messages on the venue’s bulletin board was its proof. Anonymous people were sending her words of praise for the beautiful lines on reality of life.

She thought that now her principles can get the wings to fly.

She ran hurriedly to the parking lot. She took no time in starting her car and after the next few minutes, she was in front of him. She was quick enough to reach him and hugged him with all her might. Water was flowing from her shining eyes and smile was flashing on her face.

She said, “They were clapping for me. I got the standing ovation from all the people who were sitting there. I won!! Yes, I won!!

No words came from the other side.

The expressions on her face changed swiftly bending towards panicky side.
She said again, “I won the first prize.

He said, “Ya Ya.. That’s nice! Congratulation! But you know what I had a much more happening day than yours.
I saw some of the beauties in the office corridors. Their hairs were flowing with the wind over their face like the stream flowing and accessorizing the mountain.
The glow on their face was like the shine of the sun which can make the sunflowers turn towards them.
Their perfect figure made them look like the mermaids with whom you can swim till you reach other end.
Haaassshhh!!!!!!! I wish I could have been with them. I wish you would have like them. But you are an ordinary girl.

She turned back without saying anything. She was out of words that instant. He was her world. She believed she was too for him. May be she was. But a part of that world was absent. And she was blamed for it.

She walked for hours on empty roads.

She failed to make him feel her power; the power of eternity, the power of being fair and square, the power of being truly and genuinely loved.
May be he would have felt but she lacked that one part which was not hers. Yes she looked ordinary by face but her heart was exclusive. Her thoughts resonated the notions that were hard to comprehend but vital for standing out of the queue. She was serene yet insanely mad, she was mature yet childlike. She had toiled the land of trust with love and devotion that made the flowers of happiness blossom in the spring of dedication.

But all this was not ample enough. May be she felt so!

She could hear her own words on the forlorn path.

“Yes they make the world see them,
Like they think they are the only gems..
They create a layer of gleaming reflection on the surface,
Beneath it is all the empty space..
Those who fill the space with love and care,
Pain is the avenue for them to reach upstairs..

She yelled loudly, “I am not!!!!!!!! But they are. And believe me I can be like them whenever I want to but they can never be like me.. Ever.. But I don’t care.”

They were together, They were apart..!!

Someday, somewhere I have heard “Pura hoke ke khatam hua sab, jo hai aadhaa whi to zinda hai”. Be it dreams, be it life, be it relationship.
I am sharing a Half relationship story at BlogAdda in association with #HalfGirlfriend

#half girlfriend or half boyfriend.

Anonymous story anonymous voice.

It all started spontaneously. Summer was the season. Two different minds yet common attitudes crossed the path. She was not fat but definitely not perfect with curves. She was not dark but definitely not fair in complexion. She was not ugly but definitely not good with looks. Her persona carried an innocence which nobody noticed except him. He was tall, dark and handsome but also reserved and simple in nature. Words occasionally came out of his mouth. 

One bright day amid the chaos of the college campus her eyes reached his eyes. An unknown connection was felt. And the immediate upshot was smile on both the faces.

Friendship was the next step. She was good in talks. He was best at listening. Their chats were filled with colors of expression. She was the painter. He was the canvas.

But her expressions never got the silhouette. She never let her heart roam on those roads. Maybe she thought of a "no entry" board. And he was waiting there for her since ages. But he also visualized "no" in her eyes and hence never confessed.She used to express her possessiveness but never stated the reason. She was more than a friend but not his GF. I still remember the sweet incidents of them. She snatched the keys of his car for fun. Let me tell you no one ever dared to do that with him and he laid down on the road to clinch the deal of getting the keys back. On other occasion, she called his name from the tenth floor and what the name was, "kittu" his pet name. Everyone was down there and surprisingly he just laughed.

Time moved on.

They got busy in different cities and with different work. Rare were the occasions when they met. She wanted words to flow on the top layer and he wanted to dive deep down in water of unspoken words.They never met, they never left.

That day after 5 years, they met. She had changed a lot. Her curves are sexy. She was wearing pomps with skirt. She looked no less than perfect. But he was not happy. He was missing the old beauty, who used to speak her heart out, laugh her heart out, whose childlike behaviour made him fall for her more and more. And when I asked her about the makeover, she said she has done all this for him.Yes she understood the intimacy after distance. 

Yes she craved for closeness but with perfection. And their perfect world were different. The boy wanted a world enclosed within the borders of simplicity and innocence but for the girl, the borders were made of up worldly perfection. This time she figured out a no in his eyes and stepped back. He was more than his friend but not BF.  Though those were their own perceptions but not each other's confessions.
They were together, they were apart.

More Indian Always Anytime..!!

Amalgamation is not always “raita”. It can tempt your tastebuds sometimes. And for an Indian, medley means bringing out many colours in the box and then, out of the box. One is there in front of the world (India); I am trying to present one more for you in my write-up.

Part 1: #moreIndianthanyouthink Back in past
Back in 20th century, when a good part of the world was facing the threat of colonial subjugation, India was also that piece of land. While violence was the direct option thought by the first and the second world, the course of action to be followed to earn the much awaited independence was transfiguring on this wedge of world. And the pioneer of this change was a simple old man but with some extraordinary reasoning calibre.

Part 2: #moreIndianthanyouthinkLet’s talk today
Inthe past few years, the sway of the media has multiplied in its reach to a great extent. And the western media has succeeded in finding the place in the sun for its motherland. And bingo! See, the world is praising the success, cultural superiority and technical progress of the other world. But is it true? I don’t deny its goodness but yes, I do deny the superiority.

Part 1: #moreIndianthanyouthink back in past
He was #moreIndianthanyouthink. He settled on a plan of action which was quite an offbeat from others. He made the world believe that strength of will is more constructive than strength of sword. And need not say more sustainable also. And today, despite of world’s incertitude, a country has toured a long peregrination from bottom to up in all aspects. Be it liberty, fraternity, hospitality, or any other front.

Part 2: #moreIndianthanyouthink let’s talk today
It was the time when we performed as multicultural multilingual folks at the school annual function when we were just 8-years old buddies. Yet it made us feel closer despite of regional diversities and differences. It was there when I shared my share of food in the lunch box with a roadside gal. It was there when there was one dish TV antennas in the neighbourhood. Night 8 o’clock was the time for virtual family get-together, gossips and knowing the unknowns in a very intimate way. These dish antennas gave birth to some of the best relationships; the best-friends, the best secret-sharer and many more. It was there when my exhibition’s project was smashed to smithereens and all the fellow classmates helped me to made a descent one from available things on the spot. It is there when we have rajasthani cuisine with Punjabi bangra, bihu with vadapav, sewayiaan on Diwali.
India is much more about a multicultural multi-dimensional democracy. Being Indian is a process. Much more than thought process! Much more than eating process! Much more than dancing process! It’s a life-building process.

Winsome romance got word from unknown heart

Every so often, we come across people who do not speak of anything spesh but their stories emboss charismatic print on our mind as well as heart. I too heard a one, a few days back from an unknown chick when I was travelling to Bangalore. Allow me to narrate that lovely spiel in her voice only.
I was sitting in his room. He was lying in my lap. My fingers were playing with his hairs and a little of smile sprinkled on his innocent face. Yes, once again, I fell for him and his priceless smile. We were only five-months old (since we have known each other) but it felt like that the bond was ages old. We had shared about the past and respected it with our heart. We are sharing each other’s present and evolving with it. And that day too we were together, albeit for small bits of moments. “Do you remember the moment when we started talking to each other?” he asked with a shine in his eyes. “Absolutely” I said. The constellation of felicity found its concluding star in my eyes. And I started roaming in flashback again. It was so all of the sudden, started in the flash of the moment. That was a heart-felt connection. All this started with a casual “hello”. And then, Bingo!! That hello soon changed into everyday talks about each other’s likes, dislikes, passions and dreams. After knowing enough of each other, we desiderated to meet. We started planning for that but one or other barricade showed up each time. Finally, one fine morning, I packed my bags, took the flight with no second thoughts and the other moment, me and my excitation both were in the air for a new and unknown yet much awaited journey. The flight landed right on the time. And as soon as we exchanged the glances at the exit of the Airport, I ran to him and hugged him as tightly as possible. And all he can say, “Beautifullll!!!!” and kissed me over the forehead. And in coming moments, my life was changed. And that day, after 5-months, I was there again, in his home, sharing plates of dinner with him, having dialogues on every petty or of the essence topic. And what’s surprising  to me is that contrary to my personality, sometimes, I just listen to his continuous talks; watch him with his very few yet extraordinary expressions; and in those jiffs, all I wish for a life-long togetherness with him. Yes, I fall for him again and again. Yes, I can get down on my knees and propose him to take all my stupidities and innocence till the infinity. Yes, I want him all. Yes, I want him forever.
And I can see the spark in her eyes. Like the bright sunshine. And her love for him was rolling down to her cheeks and bringing a million dollar smile on her face. The deadly combo of smile and tear was taking shape on her face. She has found life in him. They were like fire and air. She was as fierce as fire and he was as pacifying as air. But her blaze needs him! More than anything! Dependency is beautiful sometimes. Missing someone and being missed is beautiful sometimes. Vulnerability is beautiful sometimes. After all love is all about completing the incomplete. Finding the soul resonating with yours!!!
