Ah....

Dusk, my favorite time of day was upon us. The sunlight kissed the horizon ever so lightly. I stood in the balcony eagerly anticipating her arrival. The event was in the making for some time now. We set off as soon as she arrived on a path we had never taken together. Her eagerness, anticipation and excitement made it difficult for me to keep pace. Asking her to slow down would rain hell but I did anyway.

We arrived at our destination after what seemed like a millennium for her. The cool breeze kissed my face, the chatter reminded me that this was a happy place and the love all around allowed me to breath freely. I searched for the point of this all and paraphrased Henry Thoreau - rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.

I set the process in motion and turned around to see her radiant face. The truth was right there staring at me with those doe eyes. The look on her face was the same Genghis would have had after conquering the world, the look that dude from Ghajini would have if he remembered minute details of his life or a man after his first sip of wine having crossing a desert.

I smiled as she took her second bite of the Pani Puri.

Super sweet stuff. Sounds like there's one very lucky lady out there over in your neck of the woods. Or, maybe it's actually closer to the reverse? :) (haha)

Keep enduring those occasional rainfalls of hell and you're future will continue reaping such lovely sentiments & affection. I hope your love for one another endures for the remainder of this lifetime as well as the next!

Hey Satyajit, you have transformed into a deep thinker ! Best of luck for your consultancy business and Yes I genuinely see an author in you. Why don't you start with writing a comic.
I have always remembered you for your great sense of humour .

Satyajit said...

Ilika:

Haha. Thank you. Being an author isnt my cup of tea. Too much thinking required. A comic on the other hand...
