    Live without me, love

    Meanwhile, I got lost again staring at the rotating fan, I wanted to talk to her, I wanted to know her. I saw something heart-wrenching in her eyes. Oh come on Is this love at first sight? Uggh!! It can't be. Love, at first sight, is a bakwas belief. Maybe I am just attracted but I am fond of hot girls in western dresses rather than girls like her but there is something unique about her. What can it be? Uggh!! Whatever, it is impossible to find her in the college so I am gonna visit the NGO again.


    5th August 2014

    "Mumma, I will be late today. I am on my way to a friend's house."
    I went directly to the NGO from college. And I saw a delicate sight there. The kids sitting on the playground facing her and she was too sitting with them holding a book. She was reading stories to them. Those eyes were lost in the stories and that sweet smile was enough to make others smile.

    I don't know what happened to me. I felt a force of attraction pulling me and I just started taking steps towards her and then a woman interrupted.

    "Excuse me, sir. May I know who are you?"
    "Me? Amm....Myself Karthik Hiranandani."
    "Okay. So, how can I help you, sir?"
    "Can you tell me who is she?" I indicated toward her.
    "You don't know? She is the honour of this NGO, Miss Zeenat Khan."
    "What? Seriously?"

    And I read the name again "Zeenaksh Destitute Children Foundation." I was literally surprised. Impressive. That implies she loves children.
    I asked that lady if I can meet Miss Zeenat and she said that I need to have an appointment first.

    But however, I waited for her outside the NGO, sitting on my bike. The sun was already set and the moon started exhibiting its glimpse. Around 6:30 in the evening, she came out and I stood up.

    "Excuse me, miss."

    She stopped and looked at me. Realizing a stranger she marched her way again. It was obvious, that day in college she didn't notice anybody, she was just lost in reading poems, unaware of so many eyes adoring her.

    I jogged behind her and called her name, "Professor Zeenat."
    She stopped and turned back.
    "Actually, I am your student. I need your help. Can you?" I showed her my ID and she smiled.

    "Meet me tomorrow at college after recess."
    "College? No no...not at all. It's...its...its urgent...aaa..its very urgent. A walk?"

    I know it sounded very desperate but I don't know what happened to me. I was desperate to talk to her.
    I parked my bike in the parking and we wandered.

    "Hmm..tell me what's the matter?"

    I didn't know what to say. I started scrambling my English textbook inside the bag.
    "Calm down. It's alright." She said.
    I opened the book, turned a few pages and stopped.
    Looking at her I said, "This."
    "Well, you are with the wrong person then. You need to meet an automobile engineer for this."
    I looked down and realized, I was handling a car magazine. I was so embarrassed and passed a shaky smile. "I am sorry."
    I calmed myself and took out the book.
    "Victorian poetry."

    She started explaining to me and I kept glancing at her. Those bangle earrings were talking to me. Asking me to keep idolizing her. Her captivating eyes....enchanting eyes...those deep eyes had gone through a lot. I felt that.

    "Karthik, your phone is ringing."
    And I came out in reality. Uggh!! Again my girlfriend. I cut the call. It rang again.
    "It must be urgent. Pick up."
    I shook my head.
    "Hello. I will call you later."
    And the phone rang again. "Just...just ignore her."
    "Girlfriend?" She asked. I was speechless. I didn't know what to say. I nodded my head in yes. She smiled and said.
    "I see. Well! Before leaving, an advice for you. Someone once said to me, love is to experience. Experience it. You will love to fall for it again and again."
    And she went.

    .......to be continued.
