Bus Kya

Tu hoga zara pagal tune mujhko hain chuna…

It is that phase in your life when you are looking to settle down and find a companion who you will love like a queen for the rest of your life.

This quest is not that simple. We all live in a world where each of us have our own expectations. 

There are days when the way she smiles, is on your mind and there are days when one sentence from her makes your week.

The other day someone asked me the perennial question ‘What is love?’. What do you mean when you say ‘You will love her like a queen?’. Does it mean sacrificing everything?

I think love cannot be defined in a sentence or a post. Love has to be experienced.

I experience love in minutest of things.

The other day I was repairing my car’s puncture and the shopowner’s kids were giving me company. They made me smile at the end of a relentless day at work. After everything was done, I gave each one of them a Cadbury Dairy Milk. The Hug they gave me when they took the chocolate from me is their form of expressing love. It made my day (whatever was left of it)

I sometimes wonder what the world thinks of me or what the girl I am searching for thinks of me? People say screw the world. Yea Yea, I am trying to do that. But at the end of the day, I want her to be with me in such moments and I want her to know that my life is made of such moments.

Life is not about how or where you spent your weekend. Life is about moments which you will remember for the rest of your life.

I am sure there are many like me who lead a life of Batman, because we are superheroes which the world may not deserve but I want to her to know my Batman adventures moments and one day proclaim, ‘He is My Superhero’ and not ‘Tu hoga zara pagal tune mujhko hain chuna…”

    A lovely post, Harish… And one I know too well from suffering the same pangs for a long time. Its tough not knowing where and who she is and wondering if she too is missing you the way you miss her even though you may or may not have even met.

    Have faith that the universe is conspiring to bring you two together at the right moment… Above all else, hold on to that faith even in the worst moments of doubt

    Simple, heartfelt, and such a sweet post Harish 🙂 So true. Life zeroes down to few moments and of course, it better be with the queen 🙂 Cheers!

    Love is surely worth waiting for. Simple pleasures that are ever so often lost in the checkin’ frenzy often prove the most endearing.
    Hope this batman finds a girl that he not only needs, but deserves.

    A very warm post on love!
    When it comes to love i jst remember 1 short story …A man was travelling with his frnd from one destination to another by a cab. When the cab stopped and the man gave his cab fare to the driver, he stopped and said with a smile, “Thank you for dropping me at my destination.” The driver was surprised at his gesture and drove away. The man’s friend asked him with a frown on his face,” Why did you express your gratitude towards the driver ,when he didn’t even smile back at you and just drove away?”. The man replied with a smile, ” I always feel dat a warm gesture of thank you is not goin to make u small, even if he didn’t smile at me he would remember me for the rest of his life. Just because i didn’t get a smile back, I am not goin to stop this warm gesture, instead i would continue it to one day see a smiling face.”
