So Close yet So Far Away

Warning: After reading this post don’t ask me ” y the hell have u written such a long post?” I tried my best to edit it.By the way this is one more version of my previous post.

Have you ever had a weekend when you felt that you are the happiest person in the world.

On the other side…

Have u ever had a weekend when you felt like you were so close to her yet so far away.

The above lines explain the two extremes of my feelings when she came here on 12th and 13th of July 2008.

Hmmm.. it took one and half years of arguments and two months of silence to bring her here, though I was aware that itz too difficult for her to come alone, just to see me and … only me.

Finally the day has come. Itz always a nice feeling when you know that the gal u luv the most is coming to see you.. just you. I donno y guys get too tensed when a gal is coming to see them, changing the shirt twice and washing the face thrice. Nonsense.. I’m not that type. oops.. where is the T-shirt that she said she liked in one of my pics? Oh! Here it is. So, what was I saying? :-)

The first place I took her was to the company where I work. Yeah.. I know .. itz not quite a romantic place to take such a beautiful gal but you can’t find a lonely place, to talk, than a software company on weekends. I showed her my cubicle, wandered round the office , had a chat for some time and came out. We went to Spicy Venue, a decent restaurant to have lunch.

As the sun started settling down we reached EatStreet. This was the last place we visited together when she was here 2 years ago. This is a place where you find hell lot of food and donno what to eat. Then we sat on the park just beside EatStreet where a number of fortune tellers irritated us to listen to what they say, which we never did. If it was my friend Kiran(name changed on request.. actual name is Naresh Kumar Kareti… not karate.. Kareti,works for TCS Chennai :-)), he would have told their own fortune :-) . Then we had a walk across the necklace road and drove back to her hostel.

Next morning we went to Birla Mandir. If I remember right, the last time I went there was with her and I never visited it in the last 2 years… reason.. I donno. Next place.. ADLABS..the new multiplex in Hyderabad and the movie..”Jaane Tu Ya Jaane na”. I felt she would njoy watching it…. with me. Did you.. my sweet lil kid ?.Hmmm.. wish to have the same climax for my story aswell :-). Ufff… hungry….there you go.. Minerva Coffee Shop.. one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Hyderabad.

Now the interesting part, we had to catch a bus to Banglore at 5:50pm. We reached there by 5:15 and were waiting. 5:30.. 6:00.. 6:15. Good news… the bus got cancelled and no alternate one arranged. I swear, I felt sorry for myself coz if she doesn’t reach Banglore by 8:30AM Monday, she’ll just kill me :-) . Fortunately, we had seats in KSRTC bus and I was relieved. The only thing I remember in our journey was, me resting on her and holding her hand tightly or the other way round. Thatz when I felt I was so close to her yet so far away :-( .

Now, after reading this post don’t ask me whether we are friends or lovers. Shez my lover and unfortunately I’m still her friend :-(.

Have u ever had a weekend....

... when the gal, for whom u were waiting for more than a year , has come to see u and … only u.

Have u ever had a weekend when the gal u luv the most, got on ur bike for the first time.

Have u ever had a weekend when you spent two full days with ‘her’….just with her, roaming around the city.

Have u ever had a weekend when you had lunch with her in one of the best vegetarian restaurants in the city.

Have u ever had a weekend when you saw a movie with her, and the characters in the movie are sooo close to both of u that you identify urself with them.

Have u ever had a weekend when you extended your weekend till Monday, just for the sake of travelling with her.

Have u ever had a weekend when you reserved the bus tickets and the bus got cancelled and you have to bare with the serious looks of her as she needs to report in the office at any cost on Monday :-) .

Have u ever had a weekend when you travelled with your loved one for more than 500kms, resting on her and holding her hand tightly throughout the journey.

Have u ever had a weekend when you went to LandMark in The Forum(bglr), picked up the books, The Doomsday Conspiracy(Sidney Sheldon) and Hotel(Arthur Hailey), and while paying the bill came to know that you lost your ATM card :-) .

Have you ever had a weekend when you felt that you are the happiest person in the world.

After all these… finally,

Have u ever had a weekend when you felt like you were so close to her but still so far away :-( .

Hmmm… quite an eventful weekend and my most memorable one, by all means, till date.

Dear sweet lil kid,my mind tells me not to see you again unless I can see you all the time because it hurts too much to say goodbye
