Take 3 Noida💬
“No, Mom I am not ready for marriage yet as I am not financially stable & looking to meet with some other tasks in life first..marriage isn’t one of them”consoling to my Mom on debate of marriage.
“Your father already had words with Mr.Mishra and we are going tomorrow to meet his family & daughter.She is beautiful,well cultured & also settled at Delhi with her job”My mom ordered with no choice to me as where there is father’s order there is no choice.
Finally I submitted myself in front of my parents and sitting besides a beautiful slim fair girl with all red cheeks & lips and cursing upon my fortune because for a moment I wanted to forget my all dreams and freedom for this angel.We were left alone for sometime in the room with pre-arranged tea-table & the situation reminded me of typical Barjatya’s Bollywood movies.
“I work & put up in Gurgaon…and you put up in Delhi right..although everything is closely connected there, like Delhi-NCR”..I broke the silence showing curiosity to know about her.
“Yes, but it’s too far from’s in Rohini with one room-mate & its near to my workplace too.There is no hope of coming down to Gurgaon ever for me” she encountered in one go like we were participants of any debate contest about connectivity of Delhi-NCR.
“who told you to shift the place?” I almost defended
“If things will get settle positively today then…”
“Then..what?” I cut her
“Then actually….Please do me a favour,reject me or say no for this proposal” she paused & almost broke my heart & alive my dead dreams again
“You want to marry with someone else,you can tell me..I’ll help you out”
“No..I am single & happy just looking forward to my dreams and not ready for taking responsibilities” She interrupted me & completed
“Hey! even I am not ready for taking responsibilities,came here on wish of my parents and you saved its only you who could do something..the saviour” I said showing no interest on her & marriage with dead heart.
“Ok..I’ll try but I really like you as a person & we could be good friends” she told me like I am unaware of girls superficial huh!!
“yeah, friends in some 25 mins….too early” I replied holding my all cupid conspiracies & moved out of so-called meeting room with her.

Take 4..Back to Jaipur💬
“Hey..How are you” I greeted her like meeting her for first time
“long time..” she replied loudly as the punjabi music is on its high,
“Somewhere two and half years…so your parents haven’t got a good match or else still cursing me” I said with witty smile
“I am really sorry, Shubh. I have no options to contact you even I didn’t imagine it could have led you to worse situation but somewhere its you who provoked me to lie” she defended her.

Take 3 Consequences
“So how’s the girl, what’s your decision,I’ll go with your opinion and not probing you to say yes”my father questioned & answered me
“Dad,the girl is nice and I thought at least it would be good to settle down the things with engagement for a while & I’ll marry her at right time”
“That’s what I thought too…thank you my son” he replied with a great smile

“How’s the boy..?” Mr Mishra to her daughter(Surbhi)
“Dad, he is of mysterious personality with stumble mind. I have seen him before with girls in Delhi even he came here under the pressure of his parents. He smokes, drinks & hide things from his parents so he is not of honest mindset too but he is positive for marriage…still I’ll do whatever you say..”she replied as usually in one go.
“No..never..I am happy,we came to know all this at right time…nevertheless we will wait for right time” he completed in consolidating note.

Take 5 Back in Jaipur again💬
“haahaa..Yes,I know..I am the only one of my kind..who believes in making dead dreams come alive” I giggled
“And I am the one who has equal share in this crime and making that dream came true”she replied pushing her hands towards me for friendship
and I am wishing if this moment will get still-stand here.
We visits all over Jaipur together for two days as i don’t want to lose these moments, it’s certainly a dream came true for me with increase in heart-beat, like I felt when the first time i saw her. Her eyes telling me that she has similar feelings for me too.

Take 6 Wedding Day
It’s the marriage day and the couple is looking as amazing as thier heavy designer wardrobes, i am very happy that they destined for each other because their marriage could be my wedding affair with Surbhi as I planned to propose her today.
Meanwhile when i was wandering in my colourful garden of thoughts i saw a devil coming right towards me devastating flowers of my dreams.
“Hey..Shubh beta(son),how are you..??Mr.Mishra surprised me with his sweet gesture.

“You indeed shubh (lucky) for me as my relation with my daughter strengthen more just because of your escape route plan on that day. Your generation is always looking towards imaginary future without caring the present.
Surbhi called me some days back when she met you here & let me know everything..Things could be easily settled down with your truth. You almost ruined your relation with your parents also & had a bad reputation in front of world nevertheless i feel today you are the best man for my daughter. You never spoke anything for her to anyone after so much happened..may be for love” Mr. Mishra in traditional family style completed his emotional speech in one go and i saw happy faces of our family…our family because my parents are already landed here too.
“I wish if my all dreams come true with you no matter if it’s in Rohini or Gurgaon,nobody will force you to move ever can we settle down the things now & you haven’t offered me cookies on that day with tea”
I hold Surbhi’s hand and tried to propose her…
“because I sprinkled something over those cookies & apparently i fell in love with you so hadn’t offered those cookies otherwise washroom got occupied with you & only you that day” she replied and laugh riot blasted there.
“These are best sweets for sweet couple..we expected it from you, doesn’t matter we are happy that our wedding would be your wedding affair”Tarun & Shruti smiled together.
That day i realised that we have to live in present to save our future otherwise we will lose the valuable discounts offered to us by life.

    1. Haahaa…Hey! Dr. I hope you had a great day, I am sure of one thing that your patients would definately leave with smiles after all routine boring checkups 😂😂 Do let me know whenever you planned for Delhi NCR, discount toh milega hi😋😋
      Yes, I had a podcast account on anchor but never tried uploading anything because of laziness. I write travel articles for magzines( freelance & guest writer) and enjoy story telling a lot but beacuse of lazy attitude I only post these farzi sort of unorthodox writings.
      I will give it a try on podcast now.
      Have a great day ahead and thanks for read.🙌🙌😇
