WHATEVER HAPPEYNS, HAPPENS FOR THE GOOD - COINCIDENCE
Break-up is no heart-break.
Deepika Singh was sitting in her office and while sipping the coffee her mind was wandering in the past. No, she doesn’t want to open that part of her life but like it says whenever you try to bury something it keeps emerging with full force. It is said that the criss-cross lines in our hands hold our destiny, but the sad part is that though they are in our hands, we ourselves do not have any hold on our destiny.
Deepika still had some feelings for Uday which she could never kill. She always hoped the best for Uday. Whatever happened, Deepika took it as a lesson of life and moved forward. Her NGO is running successfully
and she is happy with her life. She is getting marriage proposals from so many highly educated families, just waiting for the right time and right partner.
Deepika’s parents are lawyers and she is the only child and of course everything for them. From her childhood days she was a happy-go-lucky girl. Beaming eyes, soft and luscious lips, long, curly black hair, and a petite figure. She is not only beautiful from outside but also is a wonderful person at heart, always ready to help others, whether friends or strangers.
She loves making friends and meeting and interacting with new people through almost all the social sites but ‘Facebook’ is her favourite. She likes travelling and exploring new places, so one can imagine that she always keeps her bags ready.
When she was in the final semester of her MBA and after attending five continuous lectures, Deepika was tired like hell! “Hi, Deepika, want to have some pizza,” her friend in the college Mihir called her. “we all are going,” he pointed out some of her classmates.
“Thanks Mihir, please carry on. I am tired and will go home and rest.”
She came home, asked her servant to make some tea for her. She just want to relax at that moment. Dressed in a loose white t-shirt and pink shorts, lying on her bed with headphones in her ears and laptop in her hands, Deepika was relaxing herself. She was surfing Internet with multiple tabs open, Facebook, Twitter, G-mail, Yahoo, Linkedin, etc. Since a typical Facebook fan, she was first checking her notifications on Facebook. Along with six notifications and two messages there was a ‘Friend Request’ too. She clicked it- A profile picture of a tall, fair and handsome guy sitting, playing piano.
“Uday Sharma , 3 Mutual Friends, Studied at Delhi University, Works at HCL Limited, Lives in New Delhi” and she accepted the request. Within five minutes a ping from ‘Uday Sharma’ flashed on her screen, “hi!” she replied back and a typical conversation started off, “how are you” , “wassup!” , “what do you do” , “where do you put up” and so on. It was a casual 20 minutes conversation.
Final exams were approaching and as usual a season of sleepless nights had begun. It has been almost four hours since she was studying continuously. To take a break she opened her Facebook profile. There were five friends online out of her 635 friends and one of them was Uday Sharma.
Uday- “Hi, still awake?”
Deepika- “Hey! Exams are coming, was studying... just took some break ! why are you doing at this late hours.?”
Uday- “it was a tiring day at work... looking for a better job.”
And again a friendly, yet casual conversation started. Hobbies, likes, dislikes, favourite movie, song and so on. The conversation lasted for some two hours. Both shared some common interests. They were fond of dance, music, watching movies and travelling. Deepika loved Chinese food whereas Uday loved Italian. Uday was much of a creative person and loved to play piano. He was single.
Deepika was enjoying this phase of her life. One day they decided to meet. Deepika got so excited. It was her first Dating with Uday. She spent all most 2 hours in front of her cupboard deciding what to wear! Finally after trying so many dresses she decided to wear a classy pink colour knee-length dress.
Uday was already waiting for her with a bouquet of tulips in the restaurant. “You look gorgeous!” “Thanks,” she blushed. After having some light snacks they went for a nice romantic walk. Uday gently held her hand. She smiled and blushed. Before leaving, Uday asked for a kiss from Deepika, she could not resist and they kissed each other. Since it was her first kiss she did not sleep that night and was thinking about Uday and their meeting throughout the night.
Days passed and she was excited with her first interview with a leading company. She was selected along with her friends. Meanwhile, Deepika and Uday had come so close to each other that they shared everything with each other from joys to sorrows, supported each other in all highs and lows of life. One day Uday proposed to Deepika. “Will you be my life for whole life?” Deepika’s eyes were filled with spark and love. A tear rolled down from her right eye. She just hugged Uday as tightly as she could.
It was her 24th birthday and waiting for Uday’s call. She knew he has gone out of station for office work. ‘But even so he can call her.” Her parents knew about Uday now and they had no objection. Suddenly her doorbell rang. As she opened the door she saw Uday standing with a huge bouquet of red roses, a bottle of champagne and a gift in his hands along with some luggage. Deepika was stunned! “What a pleasant surprise!” and she jumped in his arms. “I have left that job.” He said after sometime. “Don’t worry, you will soon get new job. I am always with you,” Deepika said holding his hands.
It was two months since Uday was sitting idle and searching for job. Uday was out of money. He started taking money from Deepika. Whenever he wanted money, Deepika used to deposit it in his bank account. Deepika was always there to help him. Finally Deepika decided to take help of Nidhi, her best friend from college who got placed as HR manager. Nidhi helped her with arranging interview for Uday and providing a good job profile for him in her company and thus Uday got his dream job. He got so excited with his new job. Deepika was so happy and relieved to see Uday employed. “These days you don’t even call me,” Deepika said to him. “Ya, busy with my new job.” Couple of months passed, Uday got so much involved in his work that he stopped paying much attention to Deepika and started ignoring her. Deepika had no idea about the reason behind this sudden and drastic change in Uday’s behaviour towards her. One day she got a message on Facebook messanger, ‘I am calling off the relationship.’
Deepika was taken aback. It was not less than a trauma for her. She had a breakdown. Suddenly all those promises, that love, that care turned fake. She immediately called Uday but he disconnected the call. She was not able to sleep for nights and kept calling him every day but every time she called him, he used to disconnect her call. He messaged, ‘Just get lost from my life!’ She came to know that he is living with her boss who has promised him a big jump in the company. Deepika left her job. “Mom, I want to do something for the poor and needy children and women. I want to open an NGO so that I can provide them with all the basic needs and amenities and give them a new family and a new life all together.”
“That is so nice of you to think this way. I am very pleased with your courageous decision. I am always with you. You should move on. Just understand Uday was not perfect for you. He used you only.”
Within a span of two years, her NGO got well established and did outstandingly well. She got new faces in her life. Each and every person in her NGO, whether the children or women or the staff became like a family to her. During this course of time she realized it is never the end of anything. Life moves on.
One day Nidhi called her. “Our company is facing trouble due to recession and I have been assigned with the responsibility to fire few staff members and I am going to kick Uday out of the company!”. “No Nidhi, please don’t do this. “You forgot what he did to you?” “No Nidhi, I did not forget anything. See, whatever happens, happens for the good. Earlier I used regret for everything that happened, but not now. I take everything as a part of life. Had it not happened, I would have never realized that there are people who are in even more miserable condition and still lead their life with a smile on their face. Leave everything to time. Uday will get whatever he deserves and you just leave this matter”. Nidhi understood what she said and agreed not to sack Uday.
