4 silent answers to most striking questions, being on first step of 40’s

Just a first day of being into 40th year of existence and I think, I have gained lot more wisdom about life (regardless of my look and act). Want to know how my mind speaks when I hear those superbly crafted questions?

Read on….

  1.   Where are you?

[My silent answer] : Well, right now, on call with you and rather than that its NOYB :-). FYI, I can be/live/take care of myself. If you are not known where I am means, I do not want you to know 🙂

  1. (But) why do you want to do it?

[My silent answer] : For 39X365X24X60 minutes, I tried a lot to fit but “unfit” experience seems cool, If you are asking me WHY that means I am doing something right/interesting/exciting/unique….and I want you to stay tuned to see outcome :-).

  1. Who was with you at that restaurant?

[My silent answer] : Well, I have pulled back that right from market. Just FYI, no one is allowed to ask that question. After living almost 4 decades in “human society”, I feel, I am an adult and know my boundaries and values. Thanks for the concerns (of digging about me and behind me).

  1. What has changed you so much?

[My silent answer] : Seriously, even I want to find that answer. Why “being human” experience did not feel good? But you know what? If you have not changed in a while, you are rotten. I am living life atleast 🙂

And last but not the least, do you want to know how does it feel to be into 40s?

I hope, you too feel the same way about me :-)…..

 

Love is an Adventure – Part – 11

Love is an Adventure – Part – 11

The story has put behind 10 parts and you can read all of them here –  Part-1, part-2, Part-3, Part-4, Part-5, Part-6, Part-7, Part-8, Part-9 and part-10.

Despite anticipated lazy Sunday morning, Keya walked out of bed early and made herself coffee. Of course, her mind and heart were in sync rightnow to daydream the meeting with Ankur in few hours. She kept thinking about what to wear, what to talk, how to react and so on. She re-read the chat with Ankur since past 24 hours and smiled silently.  At heart, just like any other female, she liked Ankur being jealous and his reactions. But at the same time, she wished to not pass through the situation again where she had to justify her intentions.

After coffee round and reading Sunday Times, when she slipped in bed with Vihan, he was awake and innocently smiled at her. Keya kissed his cheeks. This little guy had become a hope and purpose of her life since last few years, when she lost her own identity. She loved being with or around Vihan. Being kid with this kiddo was used to be the best time for Keya. They both started singing a poem and danced. Vihan was visibly happy, seeing his source of energy happy.

Nimit woke up and the three headed out for breakfast. This custom was followed since long. Nimit, being a perfect husband, had asked Keya to be out of kitchen on Sunday and Keya loved that free time once in a week.

Even while eating breakfast, Keya talked non-stop while stopping in between randomly to daydream about the meeting with Ankur, in few minutes. Nimit could sense that indefinable happiness of Keya but as usual, he controlled himself by not asking question. On the way back, Keya suggested both of them to visit the new sports center while she is away for couple of hours. Nimit and Vihan, both loved the idea. They dropped Keya at home and started for Sports center.

At home, Keya took quick shower as clock was already showing 11:45 am. Hotel  Platinum was about 20 minutes commute time from home and she did not wanted to be late. But again, female factor worked. One after other, she tried almost five different dresses but was not happy with any of it. Brown one was too revealing and purple had a big flowery design. Pink had cold shoulder and blue looked too short. She was in no mood to compromise but a special notification drew her to the real situation. It was almost 12:05 pm and Ankur had sent her reminder.

Ankur : Of course, you are not like other women, who forget about the special time. But just to remind you, someone is waiting for you eagerly. Come soon.

Keya was stressed now. She had just 5 minutes, if she wanted to reach on time. But she had not decided on dress yet. Finally, she convinced herself with that most promising, always worked trick of her own. She closed her eyes and took out a random dress. It was geometric patterned blue and white colored knee length dress. With a doubt, she put it on but when she looked at herself in that full size mirror, she was amazed. The dress brought out her perfect body structure while not exposing anything. Keya hurriedly matched the dress with diamond earrings and brushed long hair to leave them open.

It was already 12:17 pm, when she started from home.

After facing typical Sunday traffic, when she reached hotel Platinum, it was almost 12:42. While driving, she heard couple of those special notifications but was too late to look at them. She just rushed into Beans café but she saw a crowd of black tied people there. With a confusion of what’s going on and a guilty of being late, finally she took out her phone to call Ankur but decided to have a look at his messages.

Ankur :  Keya, Beans Café has been occupied today by one of the small business as they have their meet and greet talk today. I was not aware about it. Came to know only after I was here….

That message was around 12:10 pm. That means, Ankur was here earlier than the scheduled time, Keya thought to herself and smiled. Crazy man, she said silently and read another message which was delivered to her around 12:30 pm.

Ankur : Keya, I believe you are on the way and therefore not checking your messages. I was looking for option here but restaurant is also full due to brunch time and therefore I have booked a room in hotel Platinum so that we can talk freel. I hope, you will not mind about it. I will wait for you in hotel lobby.

For a minute, Keya was frozen. She did not imagined to be in hotel room with Ankur and her so called orthodox mind denied being there. But that heart in love had already overtaken and was directing her body to move towards hotel lobby.

She saw Ankur waiting. In blue jeans and white sleeve folded shirt, he looked handsome. She smiled when both of their eyes met. Ankur too had a wide smile on his face. The moment Keya reached nearer, he started walking towards elevator, signing her to follow. That was an awkward moment for Keya as it made her felt like she was doing something wrong. She did not like the way Ankur asked her to follow, without making her comfortable. Her mood changed in a fraction of second and she wanted to run away but she was already in elevator with him.

In elevator, when Ankur wrapped her with his right hand, she felt better and secure. Why females need that kind of emotional assurance while doing something wrong? And actually, was she doing anything wrong? Well, being at any place, with anyone is a personal freedom as far as you are following rules of society J…..That’s what society has taught us.

The right thing to learn about personal freedom is – to live the only opportunity, called life, on your own terms and do not allow anyone to control you. Also…..fuck off those, who judge you. They do so because they do not have courage to live the life, you are living or they do not have anything to do in life other than formatting and following rules 🙂.

BTW, while I was writing all those facts about personal freedom, Keya and Ankur were in hotel room – the most uneasy situation they would have imagined. But what followed is really an amazing story, exhibiting love and everything around it. Stay tuned 🙂

Love is an Adventure : Part 7

Love is an Adventure : Part 7

Previous episodes of this story are available as Part-1 and grew to  part-2, Part-3, Part-4, Part-5 and Part-6.

After being awake for the whole night and being in virtual company of each other, when both the love birds went back to real life, both had new rhythm in their moves. Ankur’s last message was still replaying in Keya’s mind…

Can’t wait to see you at school in the afternoon.

Keya kept thinking, what she will talk with Ankur when they both will meet at school pick-up gate. She kept smiling at herself for the silly love thoughts. When Nimit came on breakfast table, she happily joined him and that surprised Nimit. He tried to understand the unexpected return of charming smile on Keya’s face, he had seen before years. It made him happy and concerned at the same time but he decided to wait.

Once Nimit left, Keya wrapped up kitchen fast and took shower to get ready. After years, she used hair straightner and changed hair partition. She stared herself in mirror and smiled. That baby pink waist length, cold shoulder shirt paired with black jeans made her look beautiful with perfectly set hair. Not a big fan of accessories, she never tried anything from her best collection of earrings and watches. Today, she tried that long hanging diamond earrings and it made her round face look long and attractive. After spending almost 20 minutes in front of mirror, it was time to take selfie. For the first time in her life, she took almost 50 selfies, in different poses and while going through all of them, she was still not happy. And while the process of taking more selfies continued, phone buzzed with specific notification after almost 3 hours. She hurriedly opened the chat log to read message.  Ankur had sent his fresh smiling picture along with caption – for the new life (love)…

Not sure what to do, Keya kept looking at that smiling face. Ankur was not extraordinarily handsome but he had an appealing smile. But more than that killer smile of Ankur, she loved the caption. Being married to Nimit for more than 10 years now, she never heard that kind of romantic statement from him. Keya quickly took one more selfie and clicked on send without thinking much. And before she could put back the phone, that special sound was there again.  She quickly reached out.

Ankur : Beaaaaautiful……So want to kiss those rose petal lips (kiss) (kiss)

Keya was taken a back with the pace of things were moving on. Ankur’s message made her uncomfortable.

How is he looking at me? Did I send any wrong signal by accepting the love proposal? Is he physically attracted to me? Keya’s mind started working on a totally different track than she was onto just 10 minutes before. The more she thought, more uncomfortable she felt. Suddenly cloud of negative thoughts covered her mind.

Why should I get into all this?

Not sure what Ankur must have thought about me…

Aren’t I hurting Nimit by doing this?

Why am I risking my already settled life?

And while processing all those negative thoughts, when she realized that she was getting late to pick Vihan, she rushed. On the way, she decided to avoid Ankur and if possible, hide herself in crowd. She did not want to see Ankur anymore. Somewhere that physical affection Ankur showed, had impacted her mind. She heard her phone buzzing with special notifications from Ankur but was not interested in looking at it.

At school gate, she spotted Ankur and before he could see her, she started walking in opposite direction. But before she could reach Vihan, Ankur reached to her.

Hey Keya, Ankur was standing behind her with same killer smile.

Hi…she said while being aloof

Looking beautiful, Ankur tried to talk

Yeah, that’s what you are interested in, Keya stroke back

And before Ankur could understand anything, she left with Vihan. Ankur kept staring at her back and tried to understand what went wrong.

Love is an Adventure : Part 6

Love is an Adventure : Part 6

This story started as Part-1 and grew to  part-2, Part-3, Part-4 and Part-5..

Why someone is not responding? Hope everything is ok…Keya sent the message after seeing her four previous messages were read but not responded by Ankur. She was growing impatient and lots of thoughts – positive and negative, attacked her mind.

When you are known about the situation at other end, it’s easy to be patient or to not expect something. But when you are not known what’s going on at other end and you are so habituated with “Mutual Routine”, it’s tough to wait.

Tired Nimit was sleeping tight beside her but Keya had lost her sleep. By now, she was tired by checking phone for more than 100 times, checking notification tone, checking whether her messages were read or not….And now, she was just staring in dark, hoping and praying to listen from Ankur soon.

And it was around 2 am when Keya heard that known notification. She swiftly reached to phone and checked message. What she read was completely unexpected, at least at that moment.

Ankur : I have been struggling with myself for last few days, especially last few hours. I cannot do this anymore. I need to tell you something, Keya. I LOVE YOU. I know, it looks odd but I cannot control myself anymore. Waiting for you and your response.

Keya was thunderstruck. She never knew, Ankur will give word to the feeling so easily. She was still not sure, what that feeling of slightly discomfort with Nimit since last few days, without reason. But now, her heart was answering that question.

None of us can love/like multiples with same intensity/feeling. For years, Keya kept convincing herself that Nimit was the one for her but after meeting Ankur, something was changed. Of course, she was not ready to accept the truth that she was in love but she was not in position to deny it. Ankur did not do anything specific for her but she was feeling irresistible attraction for him. Somewhere in heart, she was feeling guilty but one part of her heart was happy to find someone for whom she felt that undefined feeling of love. She kept staring at phone screen in dark.

Now, it was Ankur’s turn to grow impatient.

Did I do anything wrong?

What would be her response?

Hope she will not stop talking.

What if she ..?

Why isn’t she responding?

Yes, men are equally impatient and emotional when it comes to love. Ankur’s mind was out of control. He started thinking about all possibilities and with each moment of wait, negative possibilities took over.

Wish, I would not have sent that message. I do not want to lose her, he talked to himself. He kept pacing in room while looking at Revati.

And almost after 45 minutes, his phone buzzed. He quickly checked it and it was Keya.

Keya :  🙂

Without any word, Keya had said something, which made Ankur incredibly happy. He literally kissed that smile on phone.

So true it is….Love changes everything in a moment. At one moment, It lifts you to the mountain peak and it makes you fall to the ground at other moment.

As of now, both love birds, although away from each other, were feeling on top of the world. For the whole night, they kept chatting…exploring each other’s life, experiences and desires.  That darkness of the night brought an unexpected brightness to these love birds….

Stay tuned to know what happened next…

P.S. : Yes, this post shows, I am back from vacation and blog is obtaining my attention again. So you are safe, if you want to wait. Will keep up the promise to publish next episode soon 🙂
