This summer would be one exciting time I am looking forward to. Coupled with my parents first ever trip outside India, there are some adventures planned as well – 4 miles mud race, bungee jumping, hiking and camping, and if time permits snorkeling.  And yes of course world’s largest roller coaster is on the cards as well.

A few must do to activities in summers are not forgotten– beaches, biking, barbecue, tennis and the list goes on.

Tomorrow we plan to do a picnic session with close friends in Central Park in New York. We have also rented a bike for a couple of hours to burn some calories and enjoy the scenic Central Park.

Preliminary preparations are on for parents visit. 8 weekends and all weekends are already planned. Just realizing that 8 weekends are not enough as well. One weekend dedicated to the mecca of Indians visiting US – Niagara Falls. Another one to show them the symbol of freedom what United States of America stands for – Statue of Liberty. Next what we call as the face of US – White House and Capitol Hill. And a few things here and there. It would be exciting to show them the culture and lifestyle here.

That’s pretty much! 🙂

A noisy ringtone jolted me up from my deep slumber.

“Hello”, I mumbled. I was too sleepy to even open my eyes and glance at the flashing number.

Silence.

“Hello”. I uttered again, a little louder this time. There was no voice on the other side. I was about to hang up when I heard the sound of long & deep breaths. There is definitely someone on the other side. I slightly opened my eyes. I heard the breathing sound again. Its familiar, it is so much familiar! But I was unable to recollect. I let it go and asked, “Who is there”?

“Hi”, a female voice echoed.

“Hi. May I know who this is?”

“I know its been really long, but I am sure you can never forget this voice.”

I was stunned. Of course I recognized this voice.  I was too stupefied to react immediately. I waited for my nerves to calm down.

 “ I don’t know I should have called you or not, but if I wouldn’t I would have regretted my whole life. I will not play around with words and will confess with pure heart. I am sorry; I walked away from your life without giving any reasons. I dint have the courage to face you, I dint have the strength to answer your questions. Its been 3 years now and there had not been a single day I dint think about you. You there?

My voice quivered. It cracked. I managed to say yes.

“Before you ask me why I left, let me tell you that it was entirely my mistake. I judged you wrong, I judged our relationship wrong. I felt we were not at the same level. But I was too scared to tell it to you, I was afraid you will break down and I would not be able to take it. You being in front of me would have made me weak.

I never forgot you. You have always been there with me. I realized that there could be only one for me, and it is you. I want to be there with you for my entire life. Please forgive me and accept me. I know how selfish this can be. But you loved me so much and I know you still love me. Don’t you love me?”

I could hear her sobbing. I know her better than I knew myself. And I know that she really feels what she is saying. I vividly remembered how a single tear in her eyes used to affect me. I cant see her cry. I still cant see tears in her eyes.

“Please don’t cry. You know I cant see you in tears.” I finally took control of me and spoke.

“I have no issues with you. I am hearing your voice after almost 3 years. And the fact is that your voice still moved me the way it used to.”

I lost my strength. I lost my voice. I found myself in tears. I couldn’t speak.

I hung up.

I believe its too late now. But the fact still remains intact. I loved her.  Do I still love her?

Call it my nature or my destiny, why do I always find myself caught at the wrong place?! Even if things come as an opportunity, the odds are always high against me. I completely understand and more than experienced to realize that the taste of success is much better when the odds are high. But not everytime..man!!!

Anyway, an opportunity is an opportunity. There is only one way out – take it, exploit it and do the best one can. And that what I will achieve to do.

Meanwhile, I realized how difficult it is to keep quite (read less talking)! I am down with sore throat and my voice box decided to shutdown. Result – Amrit is suffering. I am unable to speak much .and trust me its very very difficult to keep quite or speak less. Aaaarrgghhh!!!

Its one of those sleepless nights again where sleep just refused to accept me, and in turn ignited my thinking cells. It is dark everywhere and I am staring at the ceiling. And then some weird story started forming in my mind. It started with good thoughts and somewhere in the middle went into negative (read – sad!).

 Now, once this sad part came I could not figure out anything happy in the story. There has to be a happy ending, even if the ending is not happy! I instructed my reckless brain. The laptop was on and I decided to write. I will figure out the happy ending while penning down the weird story originating from my mind, I said to myself.

 So here it goes. (I know how weirdo it is…but a thought is a thought!!!).

 

He woke up in silence. Was it a bad dream, he wondered! He was sweating profusely and whispered a silent prayer. His thoughts were not consolidated and conclusive. He rummaged his brain to bring out the clarity. And gradually he could figure out what was happening. It was definitely not a dream.

 He desperately started looking for something. He could see the half burnt car with black soot of smoke still emanating from it. And then it struck him. It was an accident. He was driving and she was sitting next to him. Where is she!! She must be here only. He remembered everything now. There was a brake-failure and by the time he figured out, it was too late. He looked at her and thought how much he loved her. “I have to save her”. But he dint know how!! And the next moment everything went black!

 There she was, lying next to the car. He ran to her. She was breathing and making a feeble attempt to get up. He tried helping her. But to his utter shock, he was not able to hold her. He tried holding her hand, but he couldn’t even touch her. He shouted but she is dint even look at him. He couldn’t understand whats wrong with her. Why is she not looking at him? She finally stood up and painfully walked to the other side of the car.

 She screamed and broke down into tears. He followed her, and saw himself lying in the pool of blood. He was confounded. Who is that person who looks exactly like him!

And then he realized. He was the one lying there. He now understood why he was not able to touch her, why she was not looking at him. He was no more!!

He walked to her and looked into her eyes. The pain of losing him was clearly visible. Tears rolled down from his eyes. He wanted to comfort her, hold her hand. But there is nothing he can do.

 He stared at her. She is so beautiful. And then he smiled. She is alive. And its not a dream.

So here goes the first one down the hill.  SRK is looking to exit from IPL relinquishing KKR in its worst phase. (Read it in rediff.com). Investing loads of money in strategic business propositions just because one has it does not make one a business-man. It requires perseverance, constantly making an attempt to revamp things, make conclusive decisions, and most importantly turn around things. And to do that you have to be in there.

No one would have had witnessed the failure as our liquor baron faced last year and is still facing this year. I sincerely wish had it been only IPL, but his “Force India” team is also consistent in grabbing the last two positions in almost all the races. But he is there, after every race talks about the improvement over the last race, after every match talks about the extra advantage gained. And indeed Bangalore Royal Challenger is better than the last year…and “Force India” drivers were about to finish in top ten in few of the races!! He has the conviction in him, the real essence of business within him. I would not be surprised if Royal Challengers would be a champion sometime and Force India driver’s finishes in top ten.

I really don’t know whether SRK would be really leaving his team behind or not, I hold him in high regards for his breath-taking achievements. I would rather wish SRK to hold on as he has the ability to turn around things and he had done this before. Though this time he turned more controversies- multiple captain theory, who will become captain tiff, the coach and ex-captain tussle, etc etc 🙂

And now comes the most important part – I am interested in buying this team provided Mr. SRK fix up the right price. 😀 😀

P.S: For those who don’t know what SRK, KKR & IPL stands for…kindly don’t participate in the buying process 🙂
