"Old Ly's smile" "He fell in love again"

1st Chapter – 30 May 2010 

I actually stopped and allowed that 80 year old lady to cross the road. I don’t know how my hands automatically reached to stop my bike. She was looking so confident and almost stopped when she saw me approaching towards her, however she did smile when I stopped my bike and allowed her to cross the road at one go.  

I still remember those eyes with wrinkles like deep water in a well. Her hair almost turned into light gray and her back was a little bent and her face was heading towards road but I should not forget to mention that her eyes were glimmering with sparks. And I realized one thing today that the smile of a baby and people with the age of 75 and above (if they are not politician) is the most sanctified thing in this world. It looks so simple, truthful and selfless. I kept smiling for almost 2 minutes after seeing the old lady’s smile. 

2nd Chapter – 30 May 2010

And then he fell in love again. It was happening with him 3rd time when he started realizing that he could spend her whole life with a girl without reaching a saturation stage which he faced in her previous fairs (I don’t call it affair).

All this started with one or two SMS exchanges everyday and reached the stage when two souls share each bit of the information about their life. I don’t know but this time he started acting very careful. From his experience, he knew that love is the thing which does not last for one second or one day or one month or a year; however it is something which is made to last till decades and centuries. He did not have any intention to take a decade for love to happen again but he was definitely interested to take some time and reach the comfort zone of communication which was a little ambiguous till now.

She is so simple, beautiful (Take a broad meaning of this word) and redolent. She’s an introvert to strangers but super extrovert to people whom she has trust on. “Patience” is the word to describe her nature. A girl with all the madness with a dream of beautiful life. Well, it was not easy for her to describe or approach him but she did it whenever she got a chance. It was her first time when her relationship with a guy reached a level which can be described as “More than a friend”. But her core strength ‘patience’ always backed her from a direct approach to the guy. She always picked an indirect approach to explain her feelings to him.

Someone has rightly said that we should not interpret what girls say from their words because they are from Venus. They have a different methodology to express them which has been a reason for so many break ups turning guys into Devdas and sometimes this approach of gals has been a reason of the great concern for even themselves. And that’s the reason he kept making mistakes interpreting every signal with the wrong meaning. She wanted to communicate something else and he understood something different. Why don’t all boys and girls read “Man from Mars Woman from Venus” at least once? The book really helps understand the psychology of men and women.

Let me end on a happy note. I wrote this poem while I was waiting in an interview and a lady came and sat beside me:

I wish if there would be a mirror in front of my seat, I could have watched her straight, clean and neat;

When I saw her first time that stopped my heartbeat,
I can’t say nothing but she has beautiful feet;

I don’t know if her heart is as beautiful as she or it’s a cheat,
this confusion certainly stopped me from going ahead and ask for meet.

Bits & Pieces from the life....

Hi Friends,

Would like to start with following lines:

Just got a chance to update my blog after a long time.....
so busy with work that my poems have lost the rhyme....
I just miss the sweet night of valentine together we dined....
I keep missing the beautiful face, smile and the way you shine...

I don’t know why I started writing today, maybe I just want to fill the gap of April month and prove that I still write my Blog with a minimum frequency of once in a month. Whatever, just a few questions hit my mind in past month:
1. Does Law of Attraction actually exist in our personal lives?
2. Have you ever fell in love, broke up; fell in love (2nd time) broke up and then fell in love again?
3. Do you think marriages should come with a return or exchange option?

Does Law of Attraction actually exist in our personal lives?

If you might have read the book called “Secret” or “Law of Attraction”, both these books try to establish the fact of Law of Attraction in our personal lives. ‘Secret’ dictates that by thinking and talking positive, our life moves to the positive direction. Law of Attraction gives examples like meeting with your friend the day you think about him/her. If I look at my life, it did happen to me many times. I think of something and I get it, however our thinking should be rational and not something which is irrelevant to time lines and unrealistic.

My objective of giving a thought to the principles quoted in Secret was to exemplify if Law of Attraction actually works or not and it did work for me. If not all the times but at least 75% of the instances it did work when I thought about it. So guys…..don’t stop yourself from dreaming about something realistic and achievable and you will definitely have it.

Have you ever fell in love, broke up; fell in love (2nd time) broke up and then fell in love again?

Now I am moving towards the second question about love happening twice thrice in one’s life. I have heard lot of people saying that Love happens only once in lifetime and I completely oppose it. I also oppose that you can love only one person at a time. Love can happen anytime and with anyone, at least in my life (examined and proved). And I think it gives the same vibrations the way it does the first time it happens. It doesn’t matter if it’s a first sight love or one year friendship conversion into love, your eyes still remain on your mobile screen waiting for the special (importance remains same) person’s name to be flashed either with a call or SMS. The excitement does not change and the anxiety remains same if you don’t get reply for merely 30 minutes.

I tried to argue with people boasting about their first love and how they could never love again and I have also seen the same people falling for another girl over a period of time. My surprise reaches the Mount Everest when they still disagree the fact what they experienced personally. My only advice to them is to be more open and acceptable about themselves and their lives. The thing which is said by all the famous and great people may not remain a hard fact. Things keep changing and one has to accept this change.

Do you think marriages should come with a return or exchange option?

Yes….I do agree that marriages must come with an exchange option wherein the person remains the same however the package may change. The tolerance level of new generation will keep decreasing day by day and we will find increasing number of divorces happening in our country. Marriage and family consultants may contribute towards the increased understanding of a few couples and this business will further flourish with big business houses venturing into the same but no one can decrease the number unless this is addressed at the ground level may be at the education level itself when a youngster is stepping into his graduation life. The concept of sex education had been addressed by many states but I have never seen any educationist supporting the concept of Relationship Education.

I hope our government and educational institutions may address the same before it becomes a nightmare like AIDS did in last few decades.

Sometimes I hardly believe that I could write so much and thoughts and ideas keep floating into my mind but time had always been an issue and become a constraints to my only remained creativity of maintaining a blog (with few audience who hardly visit it) and writing poems. Just for your information this blog was visited by 400 odd people in last 6 months and had 88 unique visitors with 50 repeated visits.

Let me also try writing a poem this time:

So many eyes I see everyday….
So many people I meet everyday…..
Still I could never skip those two eyes…..
This realization happened to me one day.

This was a perfect day of summer 2010…..
When the clouds came to defend her from sun….
she says that she never goes out in summer….
I thanked the clouds and we were on run.

She set herself on the backseat of my bike...
She came closer to say things making my heart tide..
I can still feel her touch on my shoulders……..
Her whisper still remains in my ears I wonder.

This was the first time we were seeing each other in private…
I was keen to know lot of things about her and could not afford to be late..
Most of the time we were looking into each other eyes…
We hardly started talking and it was the time to say good bye.

When I dropped her at home, I saw her eyes moist with tears;
I took her beautiful face in my hands and nab her tears…
Those two minutes were the most beautiful in my life…
We bid each other good bye with a moist sigh.
