1. Siri

A Khaasbath & Lots More Presentation...  

 

His college had ended 6 months back and his corporate job had just started. He knew Life was changing faster than ever. He was enjoying the perquisites of working in a glossy corporate set up. But his mind was not at peace. There was something he was unable to clear for quite a long time. Everything including his life, his friends, his priorities were changing except for his love for Siri. It had only evolved into its finest form of love over the last 6 years. He had not seen her since the last day of his college. The only means of knowing about her life was through her Facebook posts & from the last three months there were no posts from her end...  

 

People say Love is a slow poison and he was experiencing it off late. Over the last three months, she had become more closer to him virtually than physically. She crossed his mind every now and then & he knew his love for her was slowly occupying his mind and he wasn't able to control his mind. He knew she would be okay but mind wanted some confirmation. He no longer wanted to socialize and meet new friends. Off late he had avoided making long conversations with any of the girls he met. He was scared they would fall in love with him. He was scared that he will have to hurt them again. Most importantly he was afraid that he would never be able to forget that one girl who had occupied the most precious part of his heart....  

 

3 Months Later:  

His mind was now relaxed when he saw her Facebook post adding a Life Event joining M.B.A course in Symbiosis College, Pune... He started thinking about the journey of 6 years yet again. They were not friends. They weren't in a relationship before. They had hardly spoken to each other. She barely knew that a person named Adarsh exists. He was never a part of her lil world but Siri surely was a part of his world. It was his secret admiration for Siri which evolved over time and got renamed as "Love."   Why did he fall in love with her? He had no answer. She was not a very beautiful girl to have caught his eyes. She was not a good speaker to have caught his attention. She had average scores in all the tests & she hardly mingled with her classmates. But maybe what drove Adarsh towards her was her Magical Words. She used to write stories and poems and post a few of them on her timeline. Her writings were beautiful and always ended on a positive note. Her thought process was more matured for the age she was. Maybe he fell in love with her thoughts.

 

It's always difficult to approach people who speak less. Even 6 long years could not help him gather enough courage to confess his love with her. His friends called him a Loser. But he knew he would have to let go of her & only then his love would find its true meaning.   Why is it that heart doesn't listen to the warnings of the mind? Why do we fall in love when we exactly know it's impractical to succeed? Is it because we believe that Miracles do happen in life? Or is it because we often see the Hero and heroine meet up in the most unexpected situations in a movie or novel? If Life was a fairy tale, there would be happy endings all the time... But unfortunately it isn't.  

 

2 Years Later:  

2 Years and his mind was still a mess. He was 26 and wasn't interested in any relationship. He has turned down all the proposals for marriage. He was very successful at his work but his personal life was still a mess. Just when Adarsh logged into his Facebook account, his news feed popped up an image saying Siri Srikanth changed her Profile Picture along with a description "12 years of Relationship continues for a Lifetime of Togetherness with these Three knots..." He should have had felt the lump in his throat. He should have had cried like a lil kid. He should have had felt angry. But instead he smiled and the smile was a smile of contentment. It was exactly why he let go of her and never confessed his love so that her love could find its due course. He knew about her relationship long ago and since then he decided that his love for her should not snatch her happiness from her. He did not want to create any ripples in her mind. His love only intended her happiness and nothing else. Siri was happy and so was Adarsh. He now knew his Life would be back onto track...  

 

1 Year Later:  

In the next two days, Adarsh would be getting engaged with his family friends daughter Ahana whom he knew from his childhood. Ahana knew the whole story. They both together burnt all his diaries having memories of Siri to burn all his memories from the past. As he saw each page of the diary burn he knew that Life would offer him something new to write from now. He was happy to share his life with Ahana. He held her hands in trust and she looked at him and nodded as though reading his mind. They both witnessed the Sun set that day in order to prepare itself to rise again on a new day....  

 

Not all love stories find its way to togetherness. Some just become memories that make you smile when you look back. If finding solace in the other persons happiness is what defines your love, then there can never be a failed love story. Destiny always plays it's game by making us meet the wrong ones and the right one. But someday someone comes into your life to show you why it did not work with anyone else. They were your missing puzzle in the lot and when you fix them Life becomes complete. Whatever happens Life moves on... Coz Life is a larger picture.
