“woh akele chal diye aur hum khade reh gaye
har baar ki tarah aansu aaj bhi beh gaye
humne yaad kiya unhe har lamha
aur unhone has k kaha -
yaad kiya sabko bas ek tum hi reh gaye”
She reads it. Thinks for a moment. Then Moves to lobby of her house and dials his number...
TRING TRING !! TRING TRING !!
Him – hello... ( in a dull voice!)
Her – what kind of a sms was that? (confused and innocent voice!)
Him – I just sent what I felt! (pissed off!)
Her – Ur upset regarding sometime... Dear!!!!! (pushing the word “dear” a little too long)
Him – yes! But what the hell difference does it make to you...(loud!)
Her – hey! What happened exactly (sheepishly!)
Her – why are you shouting?
Him – I am not shouting!! (louder!!)
Her – yes you are! And that too without any reason? (plain voice! Straightforward!)
Him – I have my reasons to behave the way I am doing but...
Her – but what...
Him – but you wont understand it! So better not talk about that! (softly... decreasing the volume!)
Her – how was your day?
Him – what difference does it make to you?
Her – seemed as if you had a big fight with someone...
Him – no! Nothing of that sort...
Her – then...
Him – will U believe me if I will tell you that I missed you the whole day...
Her – hmmm...
Him – and the day before and the day before and the full week before... and...
Her – hey! I am sorry for being out of touch for past couple of days dear! Was just a little busy....
Him – its 17 days... and you call me friend huh! (pissed off!)
Her – so sorry dear, I didn't knew that you would be bothered about me so much... I thought you yourself would have been busy!
Him – and what the messages... why dint you answered those?
Her – I usually answer them dear, might have missed a couple...
Him – 34 of them! One in the morning and one in the night every day! (in a sad tone!)
Her – hey! I had told you dear... not to expect much from me yaar!
Him – Its not expectations, I really dont mind you being busy with stuff... its just that...
Her – what?
Him – nothing! Leave it! (a deep breath after that!)
Her – we are just friends from last one month!
Him – why are you telling me that?
Her – I am sorry dear! I was not knowing that you take my being around so seriously...
Him – depth of friendship for me has less to do with time and duration and more to do with quality of time that two individuals spend together!
Her – I can see that very well, Thats why we are talking after such a long time and you had been fighting with me throughout the call...
Him – I was not fighting... it was just that... I wanted to let you know...
Her – what?
Him – nothing! Leave it!
Her – you are one god damn emotional fellow!
Him – emotional fool na!
Her – no! I never said that...
Him – (silence!)
Her – I like emotional human beings and I am myself a very emotional girl !!
Him – hmmm....
Her – and you are the most emotional person that I have ever come across!
Him – you haven't seen much of the world anyways!
Her – more then you at least!
Him – huh!
Her – huh!
Him – I miss you a lot (smiles!)
Her – I will take care of that from now on dear! (smiles back!)
Her – bye dear! M sorry for the absence, will try not to repeat it, I promise!
Him – you should be more sorry for telling me that we are just newly bonded friends...
Him – cos I never treated you that way and will never do so too! (emotionally!!)
Her – missed ya too!
Him – smiles! ( a strange fast heart beat)
Her – bye! Tc! And dont be that emotional dear, thats an advice!
Him – thanks but keep it with you only!
Her – smiles! Bye!
Him – miss you!
Her – why? Just now we are talking na!
Him – Its actually...
Her – what?
Him – nothing! Leave it!

“aapke sawalon ne humein is kadar uljha diya
ki jawaab hote huye bhi hum usse suljha na sake
diya tha jo waqt aapne humein...
us waqt mein hum,
lavz piro na sake...
kaash samajh paate khamoshi humari,
toh guftugu hum apni aage badhate”

“ae khuda nazron ko kuch aisi khudai de...
jidhar dekhun bas woh hi dikhai de...
kaash koi aisi baat ho hawa mein...
usko pukarun to bas ussi ko sunai de”
Gn. tc! :)
She reads it three times and smiles! Closes her eyes thinking about him! “such a cute fellow he is”!!
(Ps – do you actually believe in love at first sight? Or rather... love at first call? Or rather... Love at first sms? )
