23rd February to 27th February...

As everyone knows that 27th Februaury was an important day in my life.27th February was also associated with some direct or indirect link with 23rd and 24th of February.Now ,you must be wondering what this 23,24 and 27 means.Well ,let me brief you about 3 important days in my life in this year.Also ,20th February was an important day as it was the day where it all started.These dates were associated with my placement activities. The placements in my college started from the 20th of February.

20th February

It was a big day for us,indeed a special occasion for us.Infosys was visiting our campus.All students came well dressed.One could see Rahul Jaithwar with a handsome look and he was well dressed just like a professional Software Engineer.There were many other IT,Electronics and EXTC people as well who were just waiting outside the seminar hall where the test was to be conducted.We all gave our exams and at 2 pm results were declared.I didn’t had any intention of getting selected in Infosys.71 students cleared aptitude of which few of my good friends made a peak in interview like Prashant Pandey,Abhishek Dey,Subbu and many other students of ‘A’ division. From the 71 students ,51 were selected in Infosys which included my other friends like Sridhar Rao,Rahul Murkya,Sujeet Jose,Ravi Singh and Abhishek Dey.Prashant failed to clear the interview and he was out.Our TPO informed us that Accenture was supposed to conduct a joint campus selection on 23rd February,2008.My first reaction after Infosys failure was “What the f***?,I am not into those 71 people,shame on me,”.I just wanted to make use of the next opportunity.

23rd February

Finally, we arrived at the Pillay Institute of Technoloy,Panvel.It was Accenture this time.I was shocked to see many students .They were groups of Engineering students from colleges all over Navi Mumbai and Thane side. I could see friends from my college like Varun Iyer,Rahul Jaithwar, RD, Mayuresh Trivedi,Shankar,Dave,Anthony,Prashant Pandey,Mervin Salis and my school friend Deepak Chandrashekhar.The whole session wasn’t well organized and we gave our aptitude test at 1 pm despite of the stated time 10 am.We have to wait another 6 hours for the result.The results were declared at 6.30pm.My name was in the 11th group.”Yippie!!,’ was my first reaction.I then went on to clear my GD.GD was a piece of cake for me.My hr handed the card to me and invited me for the next 2 rounds which was to be held the other day.I finally reached home at around 12.35 am just to see that my Mom and my Sister were worried regarding me.My phone was out of charge as well. I just had 4 hours to prepare my self for the technical concepts.I brushed my concepts and went to the same college the next day.

24th February

I could see Hitesh,RD,Varun,Akeel and few of my other Extc friends from my college.I was placed in the same group along with my classmate Akeel.I successfully cleared my HR interview.The other groups had their Technical interview at first.I made many new friends like Vinit,Ashu and so.After a long wait for around 4 hours ,our technical interview started at around 4 pm.When Akeel came out,he was so displeased just to say that he couldn’t clear the technical.It was my turn ,I was nervous .I had taked my own time to adjust through .The interviewer asked me everything from C,C++,Java,Data Structures to HTML.He even didn’t spared mathematics.He asked me about Langrange’s Theorem.He finally asked me to write a program for matrix addition.I was not considerate about the time factor,but I explained the same to him.Later on the informer came to inform that I was rejected.It made my heart break into pieces,my hopes were shattered.I turned back for home.I switched off my cellphone.I could not see my granny’s hopes shattered.I just later on informed my maa that I wasn’t selected.Mom told me to stay cool and asked me to perform well in next companies.I worked hard for Techmahindra.I never went to college on 25th and 26th February.I was getting ready for the 27th .But Accenture had taught me a lesson on how to take steps in life.I was vexed that day and deeply hurt.I felt low and depressed.I was angry on myself and there was no one to support and provide me solace.My best friend Parul supported and encouraged me .She wished me luck and I consider myself to be very lucky for having a friend like her.I started working hard.

27th February

Once again,I could see Mayuresh Trivedi,Prashant ,Bhushan and Sandeep Repswal.This time Rahul Jaithwar was not on the scene.We had our presentation at 9 am and test started at 10.30am.It was an online test.The results were declared 5 minutes after our exams.I was selected.We were then asked to prepare ourself for Technical and HR interview.My code was TM50.I went for my interview.

She:welcome Stephen.
Me:Thank you madam.
She:So tell me about yourself.
Me: ( I told everything about me).
She: What do you know about Techmahindra?
Me: I told whatever I knew about techmahindra.
She: that’s good,tell me whats the difference between C and C++ ?
Me: (I told everything I knew.)
She:Tell me about your academic project.
Me: (I told her about my PCT project).
She: your resume says that you write stories,can u tell me any story of yours?
Me: ( I told her about the little Sam story that I wrote when I was 14, she was impressed )
She: Stephen,you are very creative.
Me:thank you mam.
She: do you have any questions?
Me:What type of jobs will be assigned to us?
She: ( she gave us all details)

And then I left.She was impressed with me.We then headed for our HR interview.It was really fun and a tensed moment there.I was interviewed by 2 HR’s .I will tell all the happenings in a separate post in few weeks time.Finally,at 5.30 pm,the results were about to be announced.We gathered in a classroom.Our Principal,HOD and our TPO could be seen in the picture. The HR Mr.Swapnil played a prank on us.He told us that only 2 of us were selected and he would announce the name of the rejected candidates first.He asked the rejected people to get seated on a separate row.I was shocked as the list contained my name.He said

“The following are the students who are not being selected

Sandeep Repswal,Jobin Jacob ,Stephen Anthony,Prashant Pandey,Mayuresh ,Ajay Bhondve,Omkar and so on.The above people are…….wwwwwilllllllll be joining us at TechMahindra next year.” We were all happy and we were overjoyed.Mayuresh was the happiest of all.We all embraced each other and wished each other.It was a special occasion for us.I soon informed my parents about my selection in Techmahindra.I was very happy that day.27th February was the day and now its 9 months gone.On 27th September ,it will be 9 months after getting place.

I felt sorry for Bhushan that day.I wished he would make it ,but he didn’t .But,recently he got selected in Cap Gemini.But I am sure that my other friends would get selected too.

Now ,I present Shruti,Valencia and Gauri with the following award called "I love your blog"

A patch of dirt....

A patch of dirt....
I sit in a dark room pondering,
nursing the brute's wounds.
For once they were close to me,
and now they are far away.
I helped them,loved them,
Alas! they were malefic.
They laughed and jested,
making me a pun in hand.
Why people are so mean?
I don't know ,but I feel people are mean.
Together we lived,together we shared,
but NOW its all past.
For once,they were good to me,
but now they have changed forever.
My past were glorious,
But,my present is worse.
Isolation is what I feel now,
for once we cherished life together.
Wash away the dirt,
for I lived with patches of dirt.

I would like to thank my blogger friends Gauri and Valencia for the awards

The Dreamer..

The Dreamer..
I am lonely wanderer ,
in search of true friends.
I roam across places,
in search of happy souls.
I live in the world of dreams,
but I owe nightmares.
My past has been worse.
I think of a good future.
I am a dreamer,
with fake dreams
I think of day,
but world of darkness invites me.
I wish to be first,
but my path prevents me.
I am a thinker,
Just thinking apart from doing anything.
I am fake with nothing to do,
Sitting alone may not help.
I think of helpless friends,
who backstabbed me .
I am a lonely soul,
whining all the way .
I wish to grab gold,
but I fall back in the race.
My dreams are high.
reaching the zenith.
Dreaming wont help,
for once I decide not to dream.
life is short,
dreams are big,
learn to work hard with no dream.
Never give up ,
like a little sparrow.
Touch the sky,
which is so high.
But first make a try ,
and then you will fly
high in the sky.

A friend is like a flower,
a rose to be exact,
Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like a heart that goes
strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world
if we didn't have a friend.

The Hare and Tortoise - Revisited

Hare and Tortoise were amongst the best friends in the jungle. They both served as a true example that clearly exhibited friendship. They were like made for each other. Hare was timid, but very fast .On the other hand tortoise was tentative. He was obsessed with the thoughts of doing good works to fellow jungle mates. Dozy, the donkey always used to be jealous of these good friends.Simha, the Lion who was the king of the jungle also appreciated them. He even arranged a seminar for the jungle members and asked hare and the tortoise to give speech on friendship. Sassy, the fox was known for its cunningness. He along with Tony, the hyena were s the villains in the jungle. They could not bear others happiness and would always tend to subvert the relationship amongst peers.They could not sustain others happiness.

One day Dozy, Sassy and Tony made a plan. They decided to separate Harry, the hare and Torti, the tortoise. Their main intention was to hurt them and create a drift between them.They decided that Dozy would provoke Harry and Tony would provoke Torti for a fight. But, nothing seemed to work.

At one point of time, it seemed that not even a single earthly power would destroy their friendship. Hati,the elephant was the jungle minister of the entire jungle and Sherry, the tiger was the sports minister of the jungle. They both had planned for a sports event. They both demanded active participation from all side.Dozy,Sassy and Tony were very much aware of this. They were sure that this time their plan won’t fail. Tony gave a wicked smile just like other Hyena’s. The entire jungle knew the history of the running race that took place few decades ago where Harry’s and Torti’s grandfathers’ participated .To summarize in short, the race was won by Torti’s grandfather as Harry’s granna slept on the way due to fatigue factor and laziness. This event shooked the entire jungle as it was the first time that a tortoise had won a running race. This event made way to various school textbooks and lectures. People all over the world used a phrase “Slow and steady wins the race” ,just to motivate people that even a slow start can lead people to victory.Dozy,Sassy and Tony were very much aware of this past facts. That event lead to woes and friends became enemies.Harry’s father and Torti’s dad never spoke to each other, but their kids were best friends. Even Harry and Torti knew about this fact. Initially ,Harry didn’t agree to the concord. But later on Tony’s insistence both Harry and Torti agreed to take part in the race. It was the sports day in the jungle .Harry and Torti lined up for the running race. It was a long race, so just two of them participated .Simha,the king,Hati,Sherry ,Bageera,the panther were present .Bandy, the monkey was the race instructor .He guided and instructed both of them and finally the whistle blew ,the race started.

Harry ran fast and Torti was slow just like his grandfather who won the race few decades ago. The whole jungle was keenly waiting for the result. Two hours later ,Harry started feeling tired and fatigue factor once again came into picture.He sat down near a bush and he slept. The tortoise was merely walking on the path. As soon as he reached Harry, he could hear snoring of Harry.Torti could well make use of this situation.Torti believed that Harry was his best friend and Harry believed the same. He soon woke up Harry and they make a plan. As per the plan Torti, walked fast and Harry followed him from behind. The jungle folk were much tensed and some of them betted that Harry will win.

They both reached the finishing end .Simha,Hati,Sherry,Bandy and Bageera were waiting at the other end. At the end ,they both place their foot on the line. The astonishing fact was that they place it at the same time. The judges were in a fix. They were clueless on what to decide. Dozy, Sassy and d Tony were anxious to know the result. Finally ,the judges declared both of them as the winner. Finally, everyone was happy as no one incurred loss,but Dozy,Sassy and Tony were vexed. At last it was true friendship which won.

Moral of the story:True Friendship and Love alone can lead one to victory.

The Pugilist -2

(All characters in this post are imaginary)
My coach Mr Harwinder Singh always used to say that my fore hand punch is the most effective and has greater impact.I remembered my coach’s advice and started using the same trick that he taught me few years ago.
Sameer was trying to defend himself.My aggression increased and I started punching him like anything.I just wanted to defeat him and it was all in my mind.
The third round got over and the score was 9-6 in my favour.He failed to score any point in the third round.I wanted to take advantage of this situation.I turned round to see the girls reaction.She was praying and I believed that she was praying for me
The fourth round started and my aggression increased.I just wanted to punch ,punch and punch.Finally he fell down .He was badly injured and was bleeding profusely.The referee then called off the match and declared me as the winner.I won the bout match by 15-6 in my favour.Sameer ‘s match winning streak record was finally broken by me.

I believed that I had impressed the girl,but I was shocked.I searched for her.I then turned around to see Sameer.Later on I came to know that the girl was Sameer’s girlfriend.She was weeping like anything.
I felt like I was a subversionist who always hurt other people.Never in my life I believed that she would be his girlfriend.I ,actually had no sympathy towards Sameer ,but it wasn’t intentional.
‘Sameer ,please get up dear ,’ she sobbed.I was shocked and I felt strange.
That very night I could not sleep nor I couldn’t eat my food.I wanted to meet Sameer and wanted to apologise. He was severely injured and in a critical condition.He was admitted in Heritage hospital in Pune. I went to the hospital with a flower bouquet .I wasn’t surprised to see that girl with him.She was seated next to him.
‘Hello Sameer,’ I said .
‘oh hi Champion,’ he said with a jest.
I know he was hurt ,but he was in a joking mood.
‘I am sorry ,’ I said to him and also apologized to the girl.
‘You are a Brutus,cruel and an insane guy,’ She bursted her anger upon me.
It was an awful situation.
‘I have a wish and you have to fulfillit,’ I asked her.
‘what wish?,’ she asked.
‘I want you to smile for me,’ I said to her.
‘Are you a physcho,how can I smile at this point of time,’ she refused at once.
‘please,’ I pleaded.
She never wanted her boyfriend to lose future matches.She studied that I was the only threat to him in the boxing field.She wanted me to leave the college forever.
‘But on one condition,’ she said.
‘what?’ I replied.
‘You have to leave the college,’ she said.
I thought for a while and finally said yes.
I wanted to leave the place and boxing forever.That day I realized that boxing can hurt any one badly.I wanted to go to my home.I wanted to meet Esha.
‘Iwill leave,’ I said with a smile.
‘but before going you have to smile for me,’ I asked her.
She made a fake smile.This was different from the one which impressed me.
‘B y the way what is your name?,’ I asked her.
I knew her as a person ,but I really didn’t knew her name .I wanted to know her name before leaving Pune.
‘Esha,’ she said.
‘what,’ I was surprised.
‘Esha Bhatia’ she said.
Esha reminded me of my girlfriend.She was similar in almost all aspect to my girlfriend.I returned back to my hostel.The very day I called my dad and asked him to get admission for me in a Mumbai college.Later on I got admission in a famous Engineering college .
I returned back to Mumbai .I hugged my mom and my sisters.I told them how I loved them.I wanted to meet Esha.I have always hurted Esha.Now I wanted to continue with Esha.I loved her very much.
I went to her home.Later on I got to know that Esha had gone to US for her further studies.She would live with her uncle’s family.Esha’s sister Nisha told me that she wont return back to India for atleast another 6 years. I was upset ,I wanted to talk to her .I just wanted her to know how much I loved her.Nisha further added that Esha was angry with me and never wanted to see me again in her lifetime.I couldn’t believe that my Esha would have said it.I wasn’t surprised as I have hurted her to such an extent.
Now,I sit alone with no dreams to galore.Now,I just wait for her.Wait and wait.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Thank You~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Pugilist.

(All characters in the story are imaginary)

I still wonder why people hate a pugilist. Its a disgusting fact that people welcome a boxer whenever he wins a medal otherwise they don’t even bother to look after them. People always believed that I am an unlucky person or I am not a lucky charm. I still remember those days when everyone used to stay away from me .Even my family members never showed faith and trust in me. Even Esha failed to understand me as a result of which we broke up.Apart from these factors,I was obsessed with one thing. It could not be washed away from my mind.I concentrated on my daily routine and a 2 hour compulsory boxing practice. It has taught me various things that my parents didn’t.
I always failed to perform well in studies as in my initial stages of my life I took boxing seriously. I have dedicated my life to this sport.Now,I feel that boxing is everything to me. My craze and madness for this sport could not secure an Engineering seat for me in Mumbai. Dad could have managed to get a seat for me in a famous Engineering College, but I didn’t want .I always wished to stay away from my parents and my two little sisters Anu and Ashu.I believe that my family members would prefer sending me in a hostel as they considered me as a useless weed. This was the first instance when I was staying away from my family. All parents would wish their son perform well in studies and I totally agree with it.But they would get angry when they see me with my boxing kit. I failed to cherish every moment of my life.I failed in the process of being a good son and a good lover.Now,everything between me and Esha is over.I once believed that Esha was the only one in my life who would cultivate the seeds of happiness for me. I still remember those conversations which I guess could not be erased from my mind.
‘I want you to leave boxing once and for all,’said Esha to me.
‘Go to hell, never in my life I would leave boxing ,’ I said with a vex.
‘Ok,fine I give you two options me or boxing, select ,’ said she.
I always wanted to be a boxer in life and I always wished to raise the level of this sport in this country. I wanted to win Olympic medals for India. I wanted to be like Emile Garry, Mike Tykson, Muhamad Ali and Vijendra Kumar. My mind was and is obsessed with boxing.
‘I select boxing,’ I said to Esha.
‘Fine then,Bye ,’ She said to me.
Not even in my wildest dreams,I could think of Esha saying that.I loved her verymuch.Esha Singh was everything to me.I shared all my personal problems with her,but to vain she left me with full of pain.She could have killed me instead of hurting me.I sometimes feel that I am worthless and winning gold and silver is not a big deal.I could not know what was running in Esha’s mind.Now,I live in a hostel with 2 room mates.Shayan and Darshan also featured in the under 19 chess championship event.I was happy living with people of same genre like me.They loved sports like me.
‘Rajiv! Why are you so sad and why is this agony dude?,’ said Anoj to me.
‘Leave it Shayan,’I answered him.
I was always agitated and disturbed.I wanted to change my attitude.I reckon that people hate me just because of my attitude.
Lectures were going on smoothly and it was my first Physics lecture.
‘Good morning students, lets Introduce our self ,’ said Patel sir.
‘I am Prashant Patel am going to teach you Physics,’ said Patel sir.
‘I am Rajiv Sukhani from Mumbai.I am attracted towards boxing.I have won many boxing competitions till now,’I paused .
I had no intentions of impressing any one.I loved to be a loner,a solitary life. Initially very few people spoke to me. They had to think twice before talking to me.I was devoid of the so called Marathi language and to vain,it was the communication medium.People find it difficult to digest that I am a boxer.I was glued to this sport since childhood and I could not think of any kind of aversion. Esha knew it.I wanted to be a good lover to Esha,but I would still wonder if she accepts me now.
I even nominated my name for the inter college kick boxing event,just because I am pretty much attached to boxing. My first bout match was against Stephen Anthony.He was the runner up in the previous year.I defeated Stephen by a score of 15-0 in my favour.

Every one applauded and there was scope for a hope.Now people knew my name .Very few people supported me.That was the day I was seeing her for the first time.As the referee raised my hands to indicate me as the winner,I could see a big smile on her face. She had an angelic and a magical face.I could not let my eyes off her. I could only see her lovely Voilet eyes.I could see my Esha back in her form.I wanted to talk to her.I was not in a hurry.Her smile said it all.
I won the other two matches in quick succession.By then, all girls wanted to be my friends and as usual I used to refuse.I wanted to talk to that innocent girl who smiled at me. I reached the finals of the competition. I was supposed to play Sameer Shinde in the final.I learned that Sameer was the defending champion and had won the competions since 3 years. He defeated Stephen by 13-8 in the finals in previous year.He was a true champion in his own way.
The day arrived.It was the final in the 71kg bout.Sameer was the clear favourite.It was 12:35 pm.We both were invited to the ring. The referee instructed us and the game began.It was a great opportunity for me to beat Sameer.I wanted to break his winning streak.I always start the game with a good defence.I was defending at first.Sameer’s forehand punch was most effective.I could not learn his tactics.At the end of 2nd round,he was leading 6-2.
‘Sameer,Sameer!! ,’ Every one chanted his name.I turned around to see the girl and she was seated at the first row.She was surrounded by many people and policemen,since it was a major university competition.

After seeing her face,I felt that there was a sudden rise in my energy level,just because I liked her.Now I was eagerly waiting for the next 2 rounds to start.May be there was a sudden increase in Adrenaline .Now,I was excited.

Family,Office and Love. (Blogisode 17)

Family,Office and Love.   (Blogisode 17)
(The wedding day).
Both the families were getting ready for the marriage function.
Archana got up from sleep and could see a big parcel next to her pillow.It was Archana's 17th birthday and it was a special day for her family as her brother was getting married.She soon got up and opened the parcel and shouted .
Parul and Ram had gifted Nokia N95 to her.As promised,Ram had gifted Archie what she wanted. She could also red a note." Happy birthday Archie - from loving brother and dearest babhi,' she read.
She was happy for once and got ready for the marriage .
Parul was arrayed for her wedding in gossamer fine, red garment, which was embroidered with gold, and jeweled butterflies and other ornaments adorned her lustrous black hair. She was wearing precious gems in her ears, and her arms and wrists were covered with bracelets, while a golden band encircled her slender waist and anklets of gold shined on her feet. Parul was dressed as a perfect bride The bride’s hand was decorated with henna or mehndi. It's said that one can tell how well a new bride is being treated by her in-laws from how long it takes for the mehndi to wear off.
The groom was waiting for bride at the mandap. The bride came out carrying groom's garland, escorted by maternal uncle, and was preceded by flower girls.
They had invited all their friends.One could see Priyanka,Nisha in posh dresses and Deepak and Prashant in Blazers.Sandeep had also invited Rashid and friends from his office.Rashid came with his wife Alaena.
(Flowers are an important ritual during the Hindu wedding ceremony. In addition to exchanging rings, the couple exchanges flower garlands (called Varmala) to symbolize their love. The garlands are made of brightly hued flowers and are longer than a Hawaiian Leigh. Another tradition similar to the American version for throwing rice is the throwing of flower petals onto the couple during and after the ceremony. These flowers are usually only thrown by the parents or members of the immediate family.Hindu wedding ceremonies can take place in a temple or at the bride’s home. At both locations, the couple is seated on a stage filled with pillars and a decorated canopy, sometimes adorned with the bride and groom’s names. Hindu wedding d├ęcor is lavish, bold and infused with color. The prominent color scheme is red and gold, which is incorporated into flower arrangements, table settings, tents, and seating. Wedding favors are handcrafted pieces of glass, wood or silver.)
Bride and groom were seated facing one another under the mandap. The pandit chanted the following slokas:
Vignesh varaia varadaia sukhapriyaya... Yakundendutusharahara dhawala... Om sahana vavatu...
Then Ram garlanded Parul and She did the same .
Then ,it was the time for testimony where the bride and groom were supposed to say their dialogues. :p
‘I, Ramkumar, take you,Parul, into my heart as my wife’ said Ram.
‘I, Parul, take you, Ramkumar, into my heart as my husband.
The wedding then followed the lectures given by the priest.
“A circle is the symbol of the sun and the earth and the universe. It is a symbol of holiness and of perfection and of peace. In these rings it is the symbol of unity, in which your lives are now joined in one unbroken circle, in which, wherever you go, you will always return to one another and to your togetherness.”,said the hindu pandit.
Priest placed the varamala (sacred rope) around bride's and groom's necks which was a clear indication of their marriage.
Bride and groom walk around the fire four times, alternating in who leads. Priest said:
Om Svaha! With the first turn, we pray for happiness in the union of the couple.
Om Svaha! With the second turn, we pray for the long life of the couple.
Om Svaha! With the third turn, we pray for the healthy life of the couple.
Om Svaha! With the fourth turn, we pray for the happiness and health of the couple.
Then the bride and groom sit down.Then Ram and Parul head for the blessing session where they were supposed to seek blessings from the elder members of their family.Finally ,that indicated the end of the marriage ceremony.
The wedding reception was held in a famous hotel. Family members, friends and relatives of both the families came together for the celebration. Parul had worn the reception saree and Ram was in a white suit.The photo session started where all relatives and friends lined up for a photograph with the newly married couples.
Finally,it was Sandeeps turn and the whole gang was present.
“This is Rashid,Adi,Crystal,Divya,TJ and Alaena babhi,’ Sandeep introduced his friends to the couples.
‘hello ,everyone,’ they welcomed their guests.
‘Any way guys,we have to go now,’ said Sandeep.
‘We will meet in future,Richa is coming with me,’ added he.
‘Love you bhaiyya and Babhi,’ said Richa.
‘we will meet you soon,’
‘Will be back in future,’ added he and they left
The ceremony ended with a sumptuous meal, which included Indian dishes , continental and Chinese items.
Parul and Ram were very happy.
'Smile please,'said the photographer.
And it was smiles all around.Happy wedding.
(not to be continued :p).

[Thank you for your support and encouragement.Sandeep ,I feel that I should be grateful to you.Waiting for your valuable feedback.So,should I plan for a sequel next year???]

Family,Office and Love.   (Blogisode 16)
 (the green signal)
‘Am very sad,’ said Ram.
‘Even me,’ said Parul.
‘Its not the right time to talk to her, please let her cry,’ Ram said to everyone.
‘let her come out of  sorrows,’said he.
‘Any way Parul,’Ram said.
‘My parents want to meet you,’ added he.
‘I will come to your house today evening,’ said Parul.
It was a sad day at office. No one could see their little sister cry.Ram and Parul leave for their home after office hours.
‘Welcome to our home,’ said Ram.
‘Voww, your house is good,’ said Parul.
‘Mom,dad,'Ram called his parents.
Parul sought their blessings. Shyama looked at her and could not led her eyes off her. She appreciated the way she behaved.She looked beautiful with  her pale skin and blue eyes. Moreover she was wearing a saree  which is an integral part of Tamil culture.
‘Hello, beta, how are you?’ said Ravi.
‘I am fine ,uncle,’ replied Parul.
The conversation went on  for a while .It seemed that Rams parents liked Parul and wanted Ram to marry her.She impressed them at the first sight itself.
‘You look gorgeous,’ said Archana.
‘You are beautiful too,’ replied Parul.
The day before Parul had spoke to her Dad .Eventually, Ajay Sinha showed a green flag to her. After few days,both the family members met .The marriage date was fixed and  co incidentally ,it was Archana’s birthday.It was a happy day  at one side and sorrow at the Richie’s side.
Every day she cried thinking of Sandeep,the man who changed her life forever.
Richa was  getting back to life.She was slowly coming out of  her sorrows.She felt happy when Ram told her about his Marriage being fixed with Parul. She  wished that she would attend their wedding ceremony with Sandeep,but all to vain.
‘Congrats dude,’ said Deepak and Prashant  in unison.
‘yippie party, friends,’ Priyanka asked for a party.
‘Sure,’ said Parul.
A week passed by. Everyone in Ram’s family were happy and they were getting ready for the feast(wedding).
(One fine day in office).
Every one was busy in their work. Richa was having her own personal problems and as  usual she was in the rest room.
‘Hello guys, can I see Richa,’ said a stranger.
‘who are you?’ asked Priyanka.
‘I am Sandeep,’ said He.
‘wow,’said she .Every one was happy for Richa.
‘I want to see her,’Sandeep added.
They all asked Sandeep to give Richie a surprise.They led him to the rest room. Richa  was thinking of her love.
‘Sandeep looks handsome and smart,’ winked Priyanka.
‘Our Richie is lucky,a good choice haan,’ said Nisha.
Sandeep entered the room and  could clearly feel that Richa was upset.He decided to play a trick on her.
He closed her  eyes from behind and asked her to guess.
‘Common Deepak,’ shouted Richa.
‘You used to call me Smarty eh!,’ said he.
The voice  was some how familiar to her.She finally realized that it was her love .Sandeep was back and she could  not believe .
‘Am back sweety,’ said he.
She kissed him and embraced him.She missed him  very much.She was seeing him after 5 months or so.
‘You have put on weight,’ said she.
‘Only Fish curry  in France ,hehe,’ said he.
‘Actually I left the office few hours before the bomb blast took place,’ added he.
‘That’s the reason my name was in the list,’Sandeep continued.
‘Don’t worry I am back,’said he.
‘Thank god,you are back.When are you going to marry me?’asked she.
‘soon,with my parents consent ,’ said he.
They both met after many months and it was a special occasion.
