It was first time, I went to a friend’s home, it was drizzling, so I didn’t pick my umbrella with me. Everything was clear. I saw a vendor, was selling corn. It’s taste comes on tongue, and my mouth filled with water, but I didn’t have much time.
When I was returning, I was thinking about our meeting. It felt like, I was with my own family. As I entered main gate, it started to rain again, earlier it was quite low, I was walking freely. Suddenly it began to rain heavily. I covered my head with diary in my hand. Suddenly I saw a girl, going in the same direction holding umbrella. I wanna asked her to let me in, but how..? I was planning, show some etiquettes, politely, ” Can you please let me under the umbrella”. (No, what was that I said to myself. Huhh..!) . And water droplets start striking more harshly. Nothing came to mind, shot off the etiquette.
“Excuse me, can you please, it’s raining heavily.” I asked.
My heart was beating fastly, it was like slow motion, she turned her face toward me, and then nod it, ‘Yes please’. She said and I quickly get in.
“Thanks” I said. She was so beautiful, and earphones plugged in her ears. Holding phone and few books in hand, and umbrella in another one. It was so romantic, rain and a girl with you. (Quiet!! I said to myself). Everything was quiet, it was eating me inside, talk something my heart compelled me, pumping blood so loudly, even I felt she could noticed it beating.
“Excuse me.. I am sorry, I am an extrovert (but in actual ambviert) and I can’t keep quiet. It’s bothering me can we talk..?” I asked.
(What I said right now? I was asking to myself.) She nod her head ‘yes’ and then I didn’t remember what I was telling to her, I was talking continuously, this thing, that thing, remember something and again start to talk.
For few seconds it was quiet again, and then she started to ask few things, and our conversation was so nice.
” Sorry.. I forget your name..!” (Well I didn’t asked yet.)
She smiled and said, “Kanika Mehra (false name). (branch) 3rd year she added.”
She was my senior, oh..! And all my dream got down, my wings of romance cutted down, (As in our institution we can’t question from our senior directly, and we use words ‘Sir or Mam for our seniors; etiquette matter most here.) But I am a double dropper, so may be we were batch mate, maybe we are agemate, hope rise again. (after all it’s heart.)
“Can I ask you to do something?” She said.
“Yes why not?” I said (I didn’t think twice.)
“Well Imagine you and your ideal was wandering through forests. (just imagine)(At that time, k start to imagine her as my ideal personality.) So you both were quite thirsty. After sometime fortunately you saw a small pond, and you requested your ideal to take some rest, meanwhile you would going for water. (I nod my head.) Water was nearly stand and clean. As you reached near, a bull ran through the water jumbled the sand and stone in it. (Bull shit..!! I said to myself). Now what are you going to do? ” She was staring at me with curiousity.
(Oh!! I have to answer, I start to ponder on it.)
“Did you listen what I said??” She asked
“Yes mam..! I am just thinking about it.”
(What are you going to do?? Think, help me.. Yes you..! Try it..!)
“Well I will use my shirt as filter and pour down the water, in my bottle, so that the dust particles settle on my shirt and water will pure again.” I said and smiled. (Knowledge I gain by watching Man Vs. Wild. )
She was quiet, and smiling.
“Mam..! How was that?” I asked curiously.
“Good !! You know, what would I do?” She said.
“I am gonna wait for sand to settle down so water will become pure again.” She said and smiled.
I was quiet, I had nothing to say.
“There is your hostel !!, now you can go .” She said.
I came back to my hostel, I was so happy with this conversation, I was telling to my friends, like I recorded my name in guiness book of world record. I searched her on facebook and send her friend request. But before sleeping, I remember the story, start to think about it, and got the message behind it.
Did you get it??
Listen carefully!! Solution for that situation was so easy. we just have to kept liitle patience, but what we do..? We use our mind over mind for solution, get worried, and sometime got stressed and depressed too..! And this thing distract us from the simple solution.
Yes I know it’s hard! Because reacting, when you are in situation, ain’t easy task. But if you show a little patience, you will get simple solution.
Once I read if there is no solution to a problem, then why to worry? And if there is solution then why to worry?
It’s in Our hand, take life easliy and it will be easy.
At last special thanks to
‘The Girl With Umbrella’
She was so polite and humble (and cute too.). Thank you to let me in that day.
Get Me on
