Serendipity!!!

It was the brightest season of India. . .Streets full of energy and lights all around.

He was busy at his sweet shop interacting with the customers . . .Among the crowd emerged a beautiful smiling face with a company along.
She stayed calm among the crowd waiting for being attended and then heard "Yes Mam! How can I help you?"
She smiled again and gazed at the variety . . . The shelves were filled with various colours and flavours.

He Picked up his favourite - Motichoor Ladoo and offered it as a sample to the Mam and advised her to taste it. Before she could have had it, he interrupted :"Mam! Please dont eat it with your teeth, You might be insulting the Ladoo. Its delicate enough to be swallowed. Just put it over your tounge and it shall melt down. . .I have offered you the king of sweets and my personal favourite"

She relished it and ordered a kilo of the same. This impressed the guy to see a lover of quality who do not price it and negotiate. She tasted a few other varieties. She was along with her mother. When finally they were done, she wanted to know the total bill. The guy replied One thousand and twenty four. The girl searched her wallet and paid the amount. All this while, there was something that was tickling this guy. . . not knowing it exactly, he felt it was her smile. The guy called his servant and advised - "Shankar, Please help the Mam in carrying the bag of sweets till her rickshaw.

Before the girl and her mother were about to leave, the guy wanted to let them know of their other specalities. He told them that they prepare Club Kachories and Jalebi on Sunday mornings and insisted that they try having it some time. He assured them best of the quality and service and that makes his sweets priced more than the market price. This impressed the girl. She did not reply anything but agreed with a smile.

They were about to leave and exchanged greetings and then while leaving she told the guy that she was sent here by his best friend.

Time passed and they did not meet then the guy was surfing the net when this smile flashed his memories. He searched for it in his best friends list and was successful to locate her. He had sent her a friend request and was checking it regularly if it was accepted. After a weeks wait, he got the answer to his question if she remembers him. She had accepted his request for friendship and responded - "I remember you. To be honest, you are difficult to be forgotten!"

He was happy to read from her. They wanted to know each other and because their roads of interests crossed, they were happy exchaging shairies(Poetry flavoured in URDU).

May be this was the beginning of a new friendship. He still wonders and tries to understand his feeling that tickled him when he saw her for the first time. Then he left it believing that it was being goverened by Laws of Attraction.

There is an anvisible force that binds all the bodies in this celestial world. This is subtle and we often feel it but are unable to clarify what it could be. Both believed that - Opposites attract.

With the passing of time, this force was playing the magin and the interaction increased and they started spending much of quality time together. The guy was a bit flirt and the girl knew it. In one of their talks, he said that he would propose her when they meet. The girl was prepared and so was the Guy. The guy was preparing for thir first meeting and bought some gifts for her. He always knew that he would never propose her.

The day had come when they met in remote location not ealsily accessible as it was in the outskirts of the city. He wanted to surprise her every moment when they were together. He gifted her somethings but not all. Few were his pieces of work. He presented the last one:

"तुमसे मिलकर जीने का रुख सा बदल गया . . .
बिना कुछ कहे और सुने इकरार हो गया . . .
मुझको तोह मुझी पर यकीन न था . . .
ना जाने क्यों तुमपर ऐतबार हो गया . . .

लगता है मुझे अब तुमसे प्यार हो गया !!! "

She had the most beautiful magical eyes on the planet explored so far. He was reading out every piece of work that he gave but for this one. She insisted: "Say! Say! Say!"

There was a reply - "I LOVE YOU!" This was a fact which he had not understood or rather was denying from but her magnetism had done the wonders. He knew that he had started loving her and so was she but he was scared to hurt her ever by anymeans - As truly said:" We do not talk with the fear of loosing the ones we love but the fact remains that we loose the love by not talking."

They shared so much is common that they always felt that were shadows of each other. Perhabs this was the first time that the LAWS OF ATTRACTION were being defied. They were happy defying them. He Loves her and she loves him but none is sure about the tomorrow and Happy living the very moment and creating history.
I reading this today feel its SERENDIPITY that they met and they are waiting for the SUNRISE together watching the SUNSETS.
"You may always live a lifetime in few moments with someone rather than searching moments lived in the lifetime."
