an ungifted gift

love is something which when given, is loved and when not given, is hated

or if given forcefully, still hated.

 

Joy ”Lisa.. I am gifting you a fund of US$10000 for your venture”

Lisa ”common.. no need from you.. please … I do not love you’

Joy ”common it is not for the same reason”

Lisa ”Where is Mike?”

Joy ”He is just going to be in NY anytime next week”

After a week

Lisa sees Mike giving a beautiful necklace to her best friend Jaquline

Lisa pulls Mike round the corner

Lisa ”Common.. not a single gift to me…”

Lisa plants a forceful kiss on Mike’s lips..

Mike ”Common.. I just do not love you.. stay away from me”

Lisa has drops of tears

Joy comes in…to the restaurent where the party is on

Joy hugs Lisa

Joy ”Lisa… seriously.. no expectations.. just get going and do something of your own”

Lisa hugs Joy and keeps sobbing.

 

 

love knocks

love can be a real lesson to someone who has never fallen in love ever..

Siya ‘I never knew what hit me when I had a first brush of crush for my teacher Hamid’

Siya ”I got pained when he got married a few months later’

Heartbroke… 1 yeat later

Siya ”this guy used to keep following me.. in college.. buses, trains and one day I stopped to ask him .. why so?’

Jai just smiled and said ”I love you”

Siya ”I could not cope.. and said stop following me.. else will call the police”

Siya ”Next day onwards he just disappeared.. To come to think of it,, he seemed from good family.. but”

and then 4 years later

Siya ”I was here on my startup mission ..in accelerator program giving pitch and one of my cofounder planted a kiss on my cheeks.. ghosh.. I didnt like it at all”

Jack ”hey Siya what is wrong.. have just joined you to make you feel comfortable.. am exploring a long term relation with you”

Siya ”common.. these investors.. the revenue and returns.. sorry not now”

2 weeks later Jack resigned and am left all alone

Siya ‘is there something wrong in me.. commitment phobic.. or am I not getting right partner.. love knocks and that is it…

As Siya is pouring her heart to her best friend Michael

Michael ”Siya.. you need a break.. no strings attachment.. will it work for you.. I and you can go to Bali”

Siya ”common… not again…”

 

A dark tunnel

A dark tunnel is one where in you get into the same knowingly or unknowingly, trying to figure out when will the tunnel end. If you choose to go backward,  you are stuck to the same old environment and if you go ahead, you will make mistakes, have accidents and you will try to seek help of other individuals who too are in same path trying to figure out the light which is supposed to eventually emerge.

To your surprise, when you come to light, you will not feel so comfortable holding hands of the ones whom you comfortably held hand with, when in tunnel and then slowly and surely, you begin avoiding them, leaving them to their own destiny and move on..

If you chose to hold hands of the same folks, chances are that they are your friends for life or somewhere they have stuck your heart..

and what about others? no harm still being compassionate with them, you did seek support at some point of time from them.

Cold

Much as Rose wanted to avoid getting cold and cough, she would invariably be sneezing.

May be the pollen or what.. not sure..

One day as she was sneezing..

Frank ‘hey .. why you are using handkerchief… use tissue papers’

Rose ”common.. who are you to poke your nose in between”

Frank ”just a road side traveler.. some drops came on my shirt too ”

Rose ”oh am sorry.. ” and again sneeze”

Frank ”dear.. just use eucalyptus oil.. all will be fine”

Rose ”salesman?”

Frank ”no.. my mom makes them.. back in Mexico”

Rose ”oh I see” and again sneezes

Frank ”Single?”

Rose ”why..so ”

Frank ”just had a break.. so wanting to check if I can have a new friend”

Rose again sneezes and wipes her hand in his jacket

Rose ”friends.. and extends hand”

Frank ”extends hand and feels it wet”

Frank ”never knew friendship can get so sticky so fast”

Both burst laughing

(This piece of writing is absolute fiction.. no relevance, coincidence with dead or alive and not intended to hurt any religious or any sentiments..  It is just a trend observed where kids are not taking care of their elders..  not sure why? but it is really sadenning to see elders wiping away their entire funds to groom kids, train and educate them and subsequently only to land themselves in mess..

wake up call for all elders to be careful and ensure everything is in your hand till you live and keep loving your kids all the way.. do not go overboard in emotions and repent later”

For youngsters : look at all the years of your life.. Friendship day also means being friends with your parents. I am sure all are friends.. if not, tomorrow is another opportunity for you

Happy friendship day
