I had decided on my attire the previous day itself. I was keeping it casual. She did not like over-dressed men. I was wearing navy blue denim with a red Angry Birds T paired with my favourite pair of sneakers. I gelled up my hair to spikes and applied a double dose of my Tommy Hilfiger aftershave. I also wore a generous dose of Davidoff’s Cool water to make sure I carried a nice fragrance and a pleasant aura. I made sure to look, feel and smell fresh too.
I had instructed the security guard the previous day itself to wash my car first as I had to rush to the airport early in the morning. By 6 am I was all set to leave. Bangalore airport is quite far from my place. Plus, I had been warned to be on time. I reached the airport by 7:45 am and sent her a text, “I’ve reached, baby! Waiting for you. Love you!” Time stood still. Seconds passed like hours. At about 8:25 I checked in at the arrival lounge. Her flight was as per schedule. Just then there was an announcement, “Kind attention, dear passengers. Jet airways announces the arrival of its flight 9W-411 from Mumbai. Passengers are requested to collect their baggage from the conveyor belt number 4. We wish you a pleasant stay in Bangalore. Thank you.”
heart stopped beating. The moment was finally here. My lshu would be with me now. I got a feel that I was seeing rewarded for my good karma till date (including the ones in my previous lives too). I went to the rest room. I did not want to pee soon after she landed. I set my hair again, washed my face, wiped the sweat off my hands, and made sure to look good. After all, this was supposed to be the most special moment in my life of 26 years. I went back to the arrival lounge, waiting for her. People were moving here and there.
And then, I saw her. There she was coming out of gate number 2. Looking ever beautiful and most pretty. Dressed in a baby pink T and blue denim, paired with leather boots, open hair and minimal accessories. Man, she looked gorgeous! Sun shades were covering her eyes. She was walking towards me. My body froze. She removed her shades and now I could look into her eyes. Her eyes were angelic. They had a sparkle and a glow which conveyed she was happy being here. I held back my tears. I was thankful that she was finally here, with me and for me! I loved her more than anything else in this world. And those eyes, in which I could see my face, spoke a million unspoken words. She was here; standing in front of me.
A casual “Hi” and we hugged. I did not want to let go of her, but I realised that we were at the airport. After releasing her, she came very close to my ear and said, “Nice cologne!” I was in seventh heaven, on cloud nine, or whatever is higher than that. “Chalo, let’s go! Am sure you’d have planned lots for me. Am waiting for them. Bring it on!” she said with a smile.
“What about your luggage?” I enquired. She told me that she had done a through check-in up to Sydney with a break journey at Bangalore. So she did not have to bother about her bags. I was so lost in her eyes that each word she spoke was like music to my ears. She started walking towards the exit and I followed her. I hadn’t still come to terms with my life that she was actually with me. I pinched myself to confirm that I was not dreaming and these events were a part of reality.
the exit door, I joined her and she told me she was hungry. We walked to my car and before she could enter it, I hugged her again. This time it was a tight hug. She hugged back, equally tight. I quickly planted a small kiss on her cheek and she smiled. I thanked her for coming to Bangalore and promised that I would make the next two days the most memorable days in her life. The next two days passed in a jiffy. I did everything that I had planned to. She enjoyed it too.
And like all good things in the world come to an end, the Sunday was here. It was the day she was leaving for Sydney. We were having our morning coffee, and she picked up her mobile all of a sudden. She started typing something on her phone. Within a minute, my phone beeped. It was her text, “These two days spent with you have been the most memorable days of my life. You’ve made me feel so special. You are the best person I’ve met till date. Promise me to be the same forever. And yea, I love you too.” I looked into her eyes. Both our eyes had tears. I was longing to hear these words from her. We hugged and kissed. This was for the first time I realised that love does exist and it overcomes all
I wanted time to stand still, but it moved on. In the evening we were out shopping. I gifted her all that I wanted to, with a few more items added to the list. We had dinner (Thai food again!) and it was time for her to leave. I dropped her at the airport and insisted on staying back till she boarded the flight.
barriers and hurdles. After knowing each other for eight months and not having met, love blossomed. It conquered the distance of seven seas (Indian Ocean, actually). We kept kissing.
wanted time to stand still, but it moved on. In the evening we were out shopping. I gifted her all that I wanted to, with a few more items added to the list. We had dinner (Thai food again!) and it was time for her to leave. I dropped her at the airport and insisted on staying back till she boarded the flight. She told me to return home and not wait as it would be very difficult for us to control our emotions and also it would get too late if I stayed back. Like an obedient guy, I returned home with a heavy heart. Why could she not stay with me forever? Why did she have to go again? When would she come back? Her thoughts kept me restless. I started crying. I received a text from her – “Tickets – Check, Check-in – Check, Immigration – Check, Security – Check, Boarding – Check and Vikki-ishu – Check!! Thanks for being there always. I love you lots.”
I smiled and replied, “Love you too! Come back soon!”
Ishu reached Sydney. I called her up, “Hey! How was your flight?” I enquired.
“Ya, Vikki, I am tired. The food served on board wasn’t good either. I just want to sleep for a while now,” she said.
“Very well. Take rest. I’ll call you later,” I replied and got back to my work. I had a very hectic schedule that day with back-to-back meetings and I could not text her. My phone beeped in the evening. “Hey Wassup?” she asked. Even before I could reply, I got another text from her, “Been busy huh? No time for me?” Another message followed. The third text was a wink smiley.
I smiled back and replied, “No matter how busy I am, I would always have time for you. I’ll be free for you, my dear. Slept well? Had something to eat?”.
“Yeah! But then there’s something more I want you to know. I miss you Vikki!” was the text.
“Me too and I love you,” I sent her.
“I love you too, and will always do. You make me feel so special. No one has ever loved me the way you do. Thank you for coming into my life and making it wonderful,” she replied.
was at a loss for words now. I did not know what to reply. I just sat on my chair with the phone in my hand and a big smile on my face. I was in love with her right from the time I messaged her on the dating site, but did not know about her feelings for me till a very long time later. It was only when she came to India that I got to know that she loved me too. I was overjoyed as she was reciprocating my love and that too in such a beautiful way. I loved her more now. I was so long living in a black box, just dreaming and imagining her love for me. And now, I felt as if the box had been opened and she had infused a new lease of life into my world that was beautified by her love.
wrapped up for the day and got back home. I started looking back at my life and compared it with what I was today. I had changed a lot since Ishu came into my life. I was a narcissist before. I always used to feel that I was the best and I was Mr Perfect in all ways. But after knowing Ishu, I wanted to be the Mr Perfect she dreamt of. I used to enquire about her definition of being Mr Perfect and started moulding myself into being Ishu’s Mr Perfect. She would always tell me not to change for her sake and she liked me the way I was.
She loved me for my qualities, both good and bad. She wanted me to be the same and she admired my individuality, honesty and the most important quality of being myself. She had said once, “You know, Vikki, what I like most about you? It is you who does not fake or pretend to be someone else. You are always yourself and that’s what I want.” She would openly criticise me for my wrongdoings at work, or with my family. I would take her advice on everything I did. Be it office, work, friends, family she would know it all.
Once, during our regular conversations, I mentioned a particular movie I badly wanted to watch. I sent her a text, “Hey! I want to go for this movie. But sadly, I have no one to come along with me today.”
“Your company is so boring. Why would anyone want to come for a movie with you?” she replied.
“Oh please! I know one girl for sure who would want to come with me!” I sent her back.
“And that is not me!” she snapped.
“Obviously! How could that be you? You are in Sydney!” was my text.
“Yeah right. Had I been in Bangalore too, it would not have been any different,” she sent with a wink smiley.
“Had you been here, it would have definitely been different altogether. I would not have even asked you for a movie. I would have forcibly taken you along,” I replied.
“Don’t even think about it. Looks like you’ve forgotten that my dad’s a mayor. You can’t imagine what would be the outcome if you even thought about doing such a thing,” she said.
“Oh come on, Ishu! I am not scared of anyone. Jab pyaar kiya to darna kya?” I sent her.
“Blush,” she replied and both of us burst into laughter.
“I love you too, and will always do. You make me feel so special. No one has ever loved me the way you do. Thank you for coming into my life and making it wonderful,” she replied.
I am a 19-year-old college student. I am the only daughter of very conservative parents. My parents love me very much and fulfil my every wish. So, while I wished even when I was in school that I could have as much freedom as my classmates did, I really cannot say that I was very unhappy then.
After I came to college, my dissatisfaction began to grow as I saw that my classmates were enjoying themselves in ways that I was not allowed to by my parents. They were taking part in debates, sports and other extracurricular activities and staying in college after classes to follow their interests without feeling shy.
But I couldn’t stay a minute after my last period was over, as my parents kept a copy of my timetable for every day of the week. So, they knew when exactly I should get home. I must admit that this was because they were afraid for me and not because they did not trust me.
Doing my first year in college, I didn’t dare to even think of saying anything about how I felt to my parents. Now that I am in second year, I feel like rebelling. I have also had a couple of embarrassing experiences that have made me think about things more.
One experience was when a male classmate of mine who lives near me, dropped in one day to borrow a book. My parents were scandalised and sat on either side of me the whole time that he was there, embarrassing me and my classmate. .
The second experience was one day when it was raining cats and dogs. I was standing at the busstop soaking wet when a classmate stopped his car and offered to drop me home. I just could not refuse the offer without appearing quite mad. So, I got into the car and hoped that my parents would not notice who was dropping me home in the heavy rain.
Of course, they did because they were waiting outside the house under an umbrella! And again their behaviour embarrassed me. Instead of thanking my classmate, they looked at him with great suspicion and did not even ask him in for a cup of hot coffee.
I am now totally fed up and feel like either dropping out of college, running away from home or having an affair just to teach my parents a lesson. Please advise. Though your parents dote on their only child and you understand that, you and your parents do not seem very close. If you were, you would be much more open with each other, and would have understood each other far better. You would have talked to them about your excitement over being in college and they would have realised that they could trust you.
Anyway, it is never too late for people who love each other to try and understand each other. After all, your parents must also have realised that they are not on the same page as you are--- and understanding each other is what you and your parents should try to do.
So, talk to them frankly. Tell them what a wonderful experience college is and try and understand their worries. Then work out a compromise that both of you can live with.
I have fallen deeply in love with a man who wants to spend his life as an artist. He says that he is sure that his greatness will be recognised one day and that then his paintings will be worth millions of rupees. But he adds that day may come after his death.
The man I want to marry says that he will not work at anything else and that I must be ready to support him till the day that his greatness is acknowledged by the world.
I love him so much that I am ready to marry him and support him till his greatness is recognised. But my elder sister says that he is making a fool of me. She says that his “paintings” are just daubs and that he is just a lazy man out to be supported all his life while he daubs paint on canvas.
I love this man a lot, but he has never sold a painting. On the other hand, I respect my elder sister whose advice to me has never been wrong. What should I do?
History has several of stories of painters whose greatness was recognised only after their deaths. So, it is possible that the man you love is one such person. But there is also the fact that people are much more knowledgeable about art these days, and so there is less chance of greatness going unrecognised.
The man you love seems a little too ready to set conditions to marrying you. He also seems to have already decided that he will not be a successful artist. This negativism does not augur well for your marriage. After all, there are many ways by which an artist can earn at least some money and still pursue his art.
You should definitely take your sister’s advice seriously.
