ThE sUrPriSe..!! - 55 Fiction



“Its so strange.. I mean after being away for nearly a month, without any trace.. And then suddenly….”


“Yeah strange… But more of a surprise naa..??” Shikha enquired.


“Surprise..?? I can’t manage it. I thought it was over & I was finally out of it.


But








I will have to still carry my Umbrella….” :P





P.S. : Wow Folks, feels so good to be back at My Corner after so long.. I hope the 55-er was not that bad... But the rains outside made me feel like writing something....& what have you all been upto..??? I think everyone is kind of away from blogosphere.. Or is it a feeling just because I am away from here.. Well about me, apart from enjoying the unexpected rains in Mumbai, I am planning to get back to studies, books, exams &.......

A Weekend to Remember....

Hie guys, how are you all doing..?? I hope u had a lovely weekend... :)

For me it was definitely a "Weekend to Remember" as I snuggled up on my bed, by the window, on the rainy afternoon with a book that I long, long, long awaited to read.."A Walk to Remember...."

Though I wanted to read the book since about a year, I could not find it until lately & when I found it, it took me just a couple of days to travel through the world & lives of Landon & Jamie....

The story set in the mid-1900's, is not just another love story, but is sure to leave its readers with memories of a lifetime. The characters make a warm place in your heart for themselves, be it the carefree Landon, hanging all day long with friends or the simple & cheerful Jamie. The flow of events is so smooth & is so beautifully expressed that you can actually visualize Landon & Jamie going in for the homecoming dance or walking down the roads of Beaufort after rehearsals. It just leaves you with a feeling that is like wind- "You can't see it or describe it but just feel it..."

As it is narrated in the first person, at times while reading, we feel that the story is about us & that exactly is what I loved the most... Even the end was open for readers to interpret it in their own ways, I would prefer to take it in a positive way, hoping that a miracle did take place in their lives wherein Jamie & Landon lived happily....

Now my weekend didn't end there.......

I even watched the movie adapted from the book. It was different in many ways from the book. It just had the outline of the book & the rest of the setting & background was different. The book & the movie should not be compared is what I learned after I saw the movie. Each had its own beauty & identity.But the combination of the book & movie truly made it "A Weekend to Remember" for me.




A Day in the life of "He" & "She".. -2

HIS DIARY
-5th August 2011
As I look into your eyes,
I can't seem to look away.
I get lost into the moment,
Each and every day.

You thought I didn't like you,
You thought that I moved on,
But to tell you the total truth...
My feelings aren't gone.....

I'm still here, still waiting,
For you & me to finally be "WE"
I'll stay here for as long as it takes
For you to be with me...

I'm still here inside your heart,
I'll never give up on you,
You'll never find anyone else,
Who loves you like I do...

I'm still here just waiting,
For you to finally realize,
For us to be Together Forever,
My mistake I now realize...

HER DIARY
-5th August,2011

Amidst raindrops & grass wet,
The evening when we met....

You made me cry,
You tore me apart,
You left me in tears,
You shattered my heart...

You entered my life with such a force,
And left it with one as strong;
And though we tried to make it last,
We both knew it wouldn't be long.

It wasn't your fault,
I guess it was me,
For love can't be forced,
Perhaps we weren't meant to be....

I've tried more than once..
To get over you,
But you make it so hard,
With memories of you...

I thought love was joy,
But I've got nothing to gain.
Just sorrow, tears,
And a little more pain.

The day the pain started,
Reality came true,
It was the day that I realized
I'll never be with you..........

And so I've learned to end this,
Without an urge to cry,
These are my final words to you,
"I love you and goodbye...."


Rain Again.......

When,
Pools, beaches & hill stations ..
Are the favourite destinations...

When,
Summer heat & scorching sun..
Takes away energy & the whole fun....

When,
Hoping for sweat to reduce soon...
The only awaited season is "Monsoon.."

Then,
Begins the clouds play,
Showing up & hiding away...

Then,
Comes the drops first,
Quickly quenching the earth 's thirst,

Then,
Is the season of umbrellas & coats,
Time to sail small paper boats.....

Then when,
It rains again...
Rains & Rains, Again & Again....!!!!


Happy Monsoon To All..... Enjoy..!! :) :)

Opposites Attract ???? Part-1

He was tall, dark and smart.Wherever he went, he made his presence felt to one and all.Extrovert by nature,he had knowledge on a wide variety of topics.That made him capable of contributing to all kind of discussions around and leave a long lasting immersion on the people around.Anyone who saw him once would surely wish to talk to him at least for a while and know him better....

She was no exception to this.On the first day of their class she noticed him and instantly felt like talking to him..getting to know him..But she was not like the other girls in the class...She was an introvert,shy to make new friends quickly and so she hesitated to take a step forward.While all other girls had got around him at least once before the lunch break she could not even bring herself to look at him in the eye fearing what if he would be looking in her direction and would catch her looking at him.. But deep inside she knew she would look at him, know him, talk to him.... Soon...

"Pal..pal..pal...har pal,har pal..kaise katega pal...." beeped her ring tone jolting her to present.She glanced at her cell and saw it was his call.She picked up the call and with a smile in her voice said, "Hiee....!!"

"Hello...Wassup??"

"Nothing.Just thinking about you..."

"Tell me.....Do u do anything other than that these days..?? Please pay attention to your studies jaanu...."He said in an advising tone.

"Haan re..I will study ..Was just reading a novel......"

"Novel,novel,novel...How can you read so much..??? It just dozes me off....."

"May be you never found an interesting one....."

"I dont want to find too..You continue with ur reading jobs...I just love to hear the

stories from you later.."

"But I think you wont like this one..."

"Why..??"

"Its actually on your favourite subject of interest.."

"Are you reading some self improvement again..????"He asked.

"Right....So when do you wanna hear my version of 'The Greatness Guide' ??"

"Not now.....So had your lunch???"

"Yeah...."

"And what did you have today, Sweety..???"

"Actually I just had rice and curd... It's so hot around. I don't feel like eating anything..!!"

"Hmmm... Thats the most nutritious diet you know..You should have that only three times a day...!!"

"Ohh please yaar...I already heard a lecture from Mom..Now you don't start over it.... I don't like all those vegetables..You know naa....!!! "

"Yeah I know.... In fact I even wonder how closely I have known about you in so less time.. Remember the first day of our class...."

"Hmmmm.. .I can never forget that..."

"You know I had noticed how quietly you were sitting in one corner of the room.. I thought you would be rather arrogant.. not even trying to look at YOUR HIGHNESS..."

"Ohhhhooo.... Tum koi Dude ho kya..?? Why should everyone look at you..??"

"C'mon even you the reason..."

"Haan haan.. I know.. Now don't laugh... You guys are like this only..."

"Like what..???

To be Continued..............

P.S. : It seems like an eternity since I have not posted here. I don't know what was happening but then something has motivated me to be back & this time I thought of this topic. I have expanded the idea as much as I could imagine & since I could not go anywhere further, I made it into a series. I have absolutely no idea of what even to write for this next part...I hope it just leads to something good... Lets just Wait & watch...!!!

Till then..Kudos, Cyaaa..... TC... :)

Why not me...??????

Have I ever told you all about my first crush..??

The one with those deep set eyes....

With a voice that was Rhythm Divine....

Others said I am not in Love.... Its just the phase that I'm going through....

But Do you Know..???

The one Whom I have always Loved....

The one who told me Everything is going to be Alright...

The one who never Escaped my thoughts...

The one to whom I was Addicted...

He was My Hero...

I thought It must be Love...

Lost inside your love...I felt he was Too Good for me...

I never knew Who's cheating who...

And then, there was Love for fun..

A One night stand... A Heartbreaker..

Baby hold on.....Maybe I was a Little girl...

For me The world crashes down..

"Why not me..????" is what I think.

"I'm taking back my love" were the words said...

Can You hear me..???

Break me, shake me..

Don't you Forget about me...

I Miss You & my Heartbeat Says it...

Even your name Rings my Bells..

The way you touch me... Brings tears & Sad Eyes...

I wish I was your Lover always....

Its not that I love to see you cry....

But that's it To love a woman...


Now if any Enrique Iglesias fan is reading this I'm sure you have deciphered it long before who am I talking about....

And for the others, who don't listen to him much often (or are thinking this is something like a story or something about me) let me tell you this is nothing but some of the titles of my favourite artist's favourite songs compiled together & the latest one in the list being "Why not me..???"

I have been listening to him since my school days & with each passing year..I have grown more & more found of him...His voice is just magic...

So presenting before you Enrique Iglesias as never before-


Have a great day ahead.. TC.. Keep rocking.. Keep smiling... :)

The Changing Times......

Many-a-times....
I feel that all is over,
I feel that all is gone...
But then it is just the beginning....
Why???

Sometimes...
I feel that I am near,
I even feel that I have got it..
But then I find it's gone...
Why???

Sometimes...
Just sometimes..
I feel that I should leave it all..
Just walk away from all harsh realities..
But then I do come back in this world of dreams...
Why..??

Hiee All.....

How are you doing..?? Hope that the month of Valentine had been pleasant & full of love for you. Talking about my above lines of creation, I have written them with some purpose & meaning.

But before I tell that I would like to know how do you all interpret it..?? What am I talking about according to you..??I would be waiting for your creative ideas & views. It would even help me to broaden my thinking horizons.

So please do share your views & I'll be back soon next time with what I meant about those few lines there...



NO or KNOW..??

A very strange thing happened today.

I was on my Desk when a customer approached me asking for the balance in his Account. I enquired his number & other details and started telling him the balance. Now whenever I have to tell something like in numbers, I speak in English default. So I began"Thirty three thous..." & he interrupted."Arey madam, English kuthe yete..Zara Marathit sanga naa"(meaning I don't understand English. Tell me in Marathi.)

I repeated the balance for him in Marathi to which he asked "Clear aahe naa Balance..??"(Is it all clear??).

I replied in positive & then he said THANK YOU & was about to leave when I called him back & said "Thank You pan English aahe..."(You said thank you, thats is in English only.)

He smiled at himself & said "English yete mala pan tumchya saarkhi nahi. Mi teacher ahe Marathi shikavto ani bolto.? Kahi chuk jali tya peksha me bolatch nahi."(I Know English but not like you people. I am Teacher.I teach Marathi & speak the same. Rather than making mistakes while talking in English, I would better not speak that.)

Now that was so humble of him to accept the simple facts as they are. Not pretending anything or trying to disguise the truth. How many times do we ourselves even take that small step to acknowledge our mistakes & the things we know or don't know.??? Most of us just try to go ahead without taking time for this analysis.

Even I realised that there must be some facts about me in the same way. So why not take sometime out & get to know the person you live the most of the time with- YOURSELF & accept those facts not just to yourself but even to others.

Have a nice time ahead..!! :) Tc..!!

Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji.....!!!

Last year at around the same time, I was humming a song "Dil toh bachcha hai ji..." and I was so much in love with the song that I played it in loop endlessly for times together. Then within a year, there comes up a movie with the same title and the strange thing is that it does not have a title song...!!

Now you must be wondering what is this post about..!! The song or the movie..??? Well, it is about none.. I just thought of the song & movie as I sat down to write... This is actually about our Dil & how it acts like a cute bachcha..!!

There are actually small things which touch our heart & make it happy. This Dil does not want material happiness. Just a a simple good morning message with a smiley, lovely breakfast of simple coffee with cream, just getting right on time for the train, finding a seat near the window, having no pending works (or no work at all..!! :P) , just getting a call/message from a person you were just thinking of, finding the same thing for dinner that you so damned wish to eat, turning on the radio & humming along the songs being played without paying attention to the words, just go la..la..la..., crack some jokes in code words which only you & your cousins/friends understand & laugh out loud. Just tell me is there anything that can make you so happy as these small incidences.?????

Now isn't it true for all of us..?? No matter how much ever we grow up or whatever we do, somewhere deep within us, there is a small child that lives silently & it surfaces up at times. These times may be joyous ones or sad ones or simply sometime in our routine when we yearn to be out of our lives where we are tired of playing different roles behind masks. So I believe, there should be an element of ourselves in whatever we do. We must not get lost in this world playing different roles & pleasing everyone by doing things that are against our heart.. Let your feelings in the heart mushroom up & let the whole world see the real YOU which will surely make your Dil smile with happiness..!! :) :)

.......................Woh car... Beetle...!!!! :D

But really, its such a sweet & cute design for a car naa..!!!

I actually like such cars more than those ferocious, speedy & racing type cars. I have liked many cars but till date, "Beetle" has been my favourite. & the only word I exclaim on seeing it is "Wowww.... So Cute...!!!!"

BTW, my favourite car is Honda City..!!! Not that I don't like all those Mercedes' & BMW's etc etc... but just that I like The Sparkling Silver Honda City more than those ones.......!!!

So which is your favourite car..???
