Wish

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 12; the twelfth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
                 I have always loved ice cream, though not tasted all the flavors, probably because I always end up with having butterscotch as this is my favorite. I never visited ice cream parlor exclusively  to eat one, but it happened on one pleasant evening, I was once hanging out with a couple of friends in an ice cream parlor….One of those modern, colourful ones, with background music & stuff you know so that they can overprice the menu owing to all the nice ambience...just like CCD's which I think are too show-off as what’s there in a Rs80 or Rs100 coffee? Do they put gold & silver powder in it? I think you can visit sometimes when you are pretty sure if something could happen over a coffee, may be when your astrologer has told that you would meet your special someone soon or something like that, as their punch line says ‘a lot can happen over a coffee’....I would be rather happy if ‘kuch kuch ho gaya’ rather than ‘bahut kuch ho sakta hai’ . Yeah, Hindi movies really liberate us!!


        So, coming to my story, there I was in the ice cream parlor. We sat next to a table occupied by bunch of girls of almost same age group as ours I suppose. I sat besides a girl whom I could make out was very pretty by just observing her head from backside..Oh yes we had gained this expertise or intuition by improving on our observational skills on girls over a long period of time. Though not intentional, I could overhear her sweet voice, she was telling to her friend that she was not ready for it yet, there are signs everywhere & she is looking for them to find the one meant for her. I could instantly figure out that she was talking about soul mate. Well, I have myself believed in soul mate funda, you start to believe in such things when you remain single for many years hoping that the right one will come along soon. I have felt “she is the one” kind of feeling for at least four girls I ran across in my life. And because of this number, the faith in this idea was dwindling away. All of a sudden, I gathered courage & turned around & asked her,” Can you tell me what time it is”? She looked at me & as I looked into her green eyes & realized she was the most beautiful person I have ever seen. She was just perfect with that smile, simple yet so charming face with open hair, that moment took my breadth away. Most of the girls would give a plain or angry look when strangers asked this question. But probably owing to my polite voice, fortunately I received a sweet smiling look. “There is a clock on wall right in front of you & don’t you have a mobile?” she said smilingly looking at my wrist ensuring that I did not wear a watch. I instantly replied that “I felt time stopped after seeing you….you are so beautiful” & just was checking the same. Wow!! That was pretty nice! Probably the most romantic thing I ever came up.
          ”Well thanks, its 6 0 clocks & time’s still running, probably I am not that beautiful” she replied again with her cute smile. “Hey all that sign stuff, is it a religious thing or you started believing after feeling it somewhere, sometime !! ? “Do you often hear to other people's conversations”? She asked pleasantly. “Why do you want to know? “I just thought this was too deep in a place like this. I have had this feeling of soul mate couple of times before & now I don’t believe in it too much. “Oh! that’s bad, Well it was not a true feeling then” she said. By this time our friends had noticed us & let us free to talk, without interrupting. She further explained that she believed our destiny was already decided & we have to just read the signs for it.” I happen to think there is an explanation beyond every reason, beyond logic that brought you here besides me...the exact day & time when I dropped at this place having wonderful time with you”!! From the blank look on my face she asked “you don’t believe in all this, do you?” I said “There is no master plan as it would be too complex as it will involve so many people”. She asked “Was it not fate that you were sitting in this chair besides me?” I said “No, this was no fate, this was just the fun to have ice cream that brought us both here” & I asked why would fate take all this trouble? “So that I can eat ice cream next time with you” came the reply. Sure, shall we sneak out for some fresh air? I realized the feeling when I said the word ‘We’, that there a special connection between us. I knew she was the one, though I felt she was way out of league for me, but I held onto thought that “both being perfect is not important in a relationship, being perfect for each other is the one that really matters!! She seemed like an angel just placed on earth for me & it was wonderful to believe that I was her angel. She agreed, as she was beginning to enjoy us being together, I suppose. This was so filmy you know like a guy meets a girl in a bar & they wake up in bed the next morning, except we ended up in true love. As we walked, we talked a lot about these soul mate stuff, likes dislikes of each other & found so much similarity in our life styles, until the end of the road, where we could see the setting sun. With great courage I held her hand & this was the most wonderful thing ever occurred to me for I knew exactly what I needed in life, I needed her!! I felt, that she was the one for me though I knew nothing about her just like seeing a signboard in her hands saying soul mate, it’s these little abstract beliefs that matter the most when you are in love with someone & keep you bounded. You just tend to go with the flow. The time spent was like a short moment, hoping the sun to take a little longer to set. It’s not the ice creams that brought us together, but the melting of hearts…in the warmth of one another. She said “So, aren’t you going to ask me out again?” I would love to…just was wondering about your reply, She said “I would love to meet you again”. That gave me relief, so can we meet at this place again? Sure, here I shall write my number, she started writing in my palm. I could feel the tickling & suddenly I heard the voice of my friend “saale uth jaa be …saala din mein bhi itna soota hai !!. I immediately saw my palm & there was nothing on it!! Yes, I was awake from my dream & now I was so upset that this all was a dream. I wondered if I had slept a couple of seconds more I could have got her number & her name!! At least possibly could call her in next time I dreamt about her in the dream world. So, there she was just a dream girl in a dream world. The only regret is, I did not kiss her goodbye before I was awake. Now often I insist on visiting ice cream parlors hoping I may run across that girl in my dreams!! Probably I may meet her again in a day dream itself I suppose!! It’s so wonderful, isn’t it? Bits & pieces of aspirations orchestrated so nicely to form a beautiful dream that I WISH could have been a reality.

Someday sometime you will be mine baby !!
Some where sometime I will meet you baby !!

mil jaate hai jo bane ek duje ke vaaste...ek duje ke vaaste....
haqeeqat mein na mile to na sahi, sapane mein he sahi....
someone somewhere is made for u....

LOL - Oh yes we had gained this expertise or intuition by improving on our observational skills on girls over a long period of time

And yes you are right about the CCD. Fully overpriced.

Amity said...

Hmmm...the ending sounds like the name of my blog..."Dreams Are My Reality!!!

Good luck for BAT 12!!!

astrosunilnomy said...

@ Amity, this was the post i posted on my blog more than an year ago. with the title "A never ending story". This post was more relevant as it contained concept of "wish that my dream could have been a reality". i always imagined finding my soulmate something like this & wrote this post, being similar to your blog is purely coincidental. In fact i have never visited or seen your blog.

Someone Is Special said...

Nice Post.. I loved the way it ended.. Congrats :-)

I wish you a good luck for BATOM - 12

Saravana Kumar - Wish

Yours Frendly,

Deviprasad Shetty said...

Subhash Kaiwar said...

Very well narrated, i liked the flow. Keep writing Sunil as a passion or hobby, it is a wonderful gift to express the thoughts and wishes which others like me would have dreamt or realized it but just didnt put it down on paper or as blog. Kudos..:-).

Naveen Nanjundappa said...

Kshama_zings said...

hii,
hope u remember me..
amazing read this blog was...
really felt it was true before d ending :P

astrosunilnomy said...

@Vikram, Thanks for the appreciation , Ya good hair doesn't mean charming face, it's more of an Aura or Scent of a women sort of concept by which we can guess how beautiful she might be ! jus kidding, there have been instances where just opposite also has happened LOL :-) I don't know when I can afford CCD coffee. I still feel the A2B itself coffee/tea @Rs12 costly ! typical middle class optimization algorithm overrides every thoughts & of course my dad saying a million times that he started his career for salary of Rs80 as Physics lecturer. Thinking in similar lines, just ignoring the inflation & all, i wonder am drinking coffee costing one month pay of my dad, I refrain simply thinking: What the Hell ??

astrosunilnomy said...

@ Someone Is Special, Thanks for the appreciation, It ended in a way which everyone wants to be a reality not a dream, anyway good to know that you liked. Wish you too good luck !

astrosunilnomy said...

@ Jaspreet, Thanks for the appreciation, this took a lot of refinement in coming up with the flow ! Being from middle class, I can only afford to spend money on some random girl when I have some assurance like astrologer has told that you would find your love this month or season :-) LOL . all the best to you too.

astrosunilnomy said...

@ Devi, Le please wish I will meet her in reality, If I meet her in dream I can't do anything more than writing another blog post LOL :-) Thanks for the comments .

astrosunilnomy said...

@Subhash, Probably I can't express myself speaking out, so prefer to write. Thanks for the appreciation & keep reading :-)

astrosunilnomy said...

@Naveen, Thanks Maga !

astrosunilnomy said...

@Kshama, of course I remember you, we met at Kavalur during BAS Star party, Thanks for the appreciation, that was intentional, the twist in the end feels the reader happy after reading , thats the take away from story ! Do read other posts as well, happy reading :-)

Vipul Grover said...

astrosunilnomy said...

@ Thanks for the appreciation, ya it really sucks when we are get up from from a beautiful & pleasant dream, but most of the times i have woken up from a dream of having exams & that terrible fear & really feel a sigh of relief & relieved that this was only a dream & just relaxed after that thinking that i don't have to face any exam anymore.

Mahesh Kalaal said...

i liked it for two simple reasons ...

My fav flavour is butterscotch..
I believe in soul-mate concept ..

PS : I hate posh coffee shops

Vinay said...

This is something which is called beauty of the heart...Your dream itself is like a nice music..

Vinay said...

Your words give me a look of good heart and its like a nice music. I enjoyed the flow...

astrosunilnomy said...

@ Mahesh, thnx mahesh for the appreciation, now I am planning i must have butterscotch in weekend ! soulmate concept is just too nice for a movie, blogs etc. many people dont beleive in soulmate funda when it comes to reality.

@ Vinay, thnx vinay, beauty of the heart is the one behind this dream & also blog post!
