Category: The Rascals of my life….


This is my first attempt in which I’ve written a story with anyone, and it couldn’t be more awesome to write one for the first time with one of the most beautiful and a splendid specimen of a lady I have ever known in my life. So this one’s by Me, Nipath and Nidhi (Follow her blog on http://balancingdreams.blogspot.com/ ) . Hope you all like it.

Part I

He watched her sleep, stroking her head gently. A strand of her hair kept falling on her face and he patiently brushed it aside every time it fell. Zoe looked like her mother, calm, serene and silent. Satisfied, that his little angel had fallen asleep, kissing her forehead, he got up. Turning around he saw the photo at the bed side that still smiled at him. The pangs of regret of that night still haunted his soul. He wrenched his eyes away from the photo. His heart beat escalated; his forehead became sweaty, the whole night replayed in his head. He headed straight to his study, trying to find solace in the golden brown liquid that lay on his table. He poured himself a stiff one, the ice splashing the golden drops around the glass, when his promise to Zoe of never drinking again, surfaced. He left his glass untouched, and sat down in his chair. The rocking motion drifted him into thoughts as the rains started, outside his home and inside his heart.

“Where are we going Pankaj and where does this highway lead to?”

“There’s a point beyond the hill, a sun kissed spot and a glittering waterfall. I know you’ll love it.”

Saanjh gazed lovingly into the eyes of the man who treasured her, as he took her hand and pressed it into his own.

“I love the way your hand fits so well into mine.” He said, breaking her into a blush.

The Enfield bobbed up the hilly roads, the thump of the machine, drawing irking remarks from nature and its fauna, yet in all this chaos and ruckus, two hearts were at peace, oblivious into their own world.

The scenic beauty of that place, made Pankaj forget the very purpose of bringing her to that place. The air was surrounded by the calls of the mountain pigeons and the imperial sparrows, the water sparkling like blue elixir, the clear sky above them, and the wind doing its bit to make the whole setting perfect. He took her hand and strolled with her to the waterfall, not taking his eyes off her as she looked around her completely mesmerized.

Hand in Hand they stood on the side of the waterfall. Pankaj tried not to show his anticipation and fear in front of Saanjh. He tried to steal his nerves but his eyes gave away. Saanjh turned to him, wrapped her hands around his neck and looked into his eyes.

“Saanjh, I do have something to ask you”, his words barely a whisper, his heart pounding.

“And what would that be Mister?” She knew what was coming, yet she teased him.

The 6 footed man, suddenly turned half his height, kneeling on one knee.

“You have time and again made me happy, your smile brightens my day, and with you I am myself. My day starts with the thought of you and ends with you, you mean everything to me, and you’re my world and everything in it. I feel the very purpose of my life fulfilled when I’m with you and I’m happiest with you. And thus now I wish to make you mine forever.” He took a deep breath, paused, and popped the question. “Will you marry me?” He asked as he pulled out a ring and held it in front of her.

She gazed at him. The jungle behind them fell silent or they had become oblivious to everything around them. A single tear ran down from her eyes, as she nodded his approval. He slipped the ring onto her finger and hugged her, and she broke down in his arms. He parted himself from her, wiped her tears and kissed her forehead and held her close to his chest.

Part II

It may all seem to us that when the love is young, everything feels right. We can do anything, We can fight anyone, we can make it go to any crazy amount to make it all work just to have the person in our lives. We promise, we commit, we make plans, but sometimes..only till the love is young..

The thunder rumbled in the back drop, waking him up from his dream. Sweat had broken on his forehead, and he found himself short of breath. He stood upright, his breathing shallow, and the lump on his throat evident.

He combed her hair and pinned her kerchief, wiping the crumbs of her toast from her mouth. She grinned at him, showcasing a gap in her milk teeth as he picked her up in his arms. She rubbed her nose against his t-shirt and he tickled her for that. She yelped, laughing out loud, her eyes glistening. After all she had her mother’s eyes. The same eyes that drew him to her. The same eyes who delivered the judgment that night.

She played with his stubble infested cheeks, very well aware that her father did not like it one bit. He turned towards her, pretending to get angry and growled at her. She kissed his nose and kissed him on his cheek as he walked her out of the front door and set her down. The bus stood at the gate, trembling, it’s large diesel engine on.

“Bye Daddy”, she waved at him.

“Bye Baby”, he stood there watching her.

She turned her head a little sideways, looking past at him and shouted “Bye Mummy”

He froze, half expecting a reply to her call, but it never came.

He turned to see Saanjh’s photo staring at him from the backdrop, over the mantle, the greeting directed at her. Zoey must have put it there.

He turned to see Zoey leave. Waving from the bus, going away. He too raised his hand as farewell, hoping that she did not notice the single line of tear that had crept from his eyes. His body sagging, at the reminiscence of the past, and he stood, a man who once had it all, only to give it away. But this was his penance after all. That was his redemption.

Well i hope this requires not introduction for sure…And sorry to keep u waiting Dipu…I know u would have my head if i did not do this soon…And here it is…Hope it’s worth the wait…

Me and Dippanita(Hopeless Romantics :\)

Well for starters that’s “DIPU”…The Dipu in fact :P…We are a bunch of lost kids who were so into our own selves when we were kids that we are a bunch of lesser known mortals to most…But then so what ?? We’re here and that what matters…We have a lot to catch up on the world and thus the exuberance always manages to come through…We got a potential lot of problems but then it’s the helpless romantic in both of us that sees us through the day…Good as friends and forgiving as enemies…we love to be the center of attention and praise…The lady above is a pretty brainier while I’m the intellectual defunct :P…But the glasses more than make up for it..Rebels in our own paths…It’s hard to back us down when we’r in the mood and that makes the world run and take cover…We’re both forlorn romantics and it shows the weaker part of the human nature but who cares…when we have friends like the ones we know…Life cannot be more demanding…She lives for her dreams and I live by my present…One fo the most fun filled people I’ve ever known allthough she might come off as a queer lady which is assure u she is(Who the hell names their friends Nipple man) :O…But still we both are known for our antics and here’s the emo and nerd of the group 😀

Aniket and Onkar(Ever Optimists)

Boy oh Boy…The ever optimist people !! Both of em got their own charm (esp Onkar ;)…I have to hand it over to them…The most carefree guys I’ve ever known…They are the silent operators pf the group but a lot depends on them…They are the backbone of the group and are there for us all come what may…But one’s into total celibacy…The other roams around like the Indian version of Charlie Harper :P…But never the less one of the most fun guys to be with…They are never in the off beat..Always pumped and lively…The contention they share with all is unique and nothing can replace what they do ;)…They’ve been around the block a few times and that’s what makes them stand apart…Aniket is a character who doesn’t demand respect…He gets it…Onkar is the crooner..The charming guy 😉

Each of us is unique and that is the main driving force for the group…The euphoria and the charisma that we all exuberant as individuals is what makes us all so special…U guys have all been really special to me and I wanna thank u all for being there when i needed it…I don’t have any more words to say…But i know u’ll understand what i’m trying to say…

Cheers to the Crazy Gang…
Cheers to us all…
Cheers to our friendships and the crazy stuff that we’ve done and will do 🙂
Love u all !!

Some where in the deep dark depths of the Facebook world….lies a group….a group of  friends who are endearing and benevolent to each other and their companies….This is the place where they know they can share their most darkest secrets and their emotions and desires to say the least…They fight,they curse, they follow sarcasm religiously but share the love and rejoice to their spirit of friendship each and every day….They are very few close friends i have…..some who know my life in and out…The’r always been there for whenever i needed them….come what may….The distances between all of us are great….But then we’r friends after all….Friends for life….Friends who’v promised to be there for one another come what may….Friends who’ll be the same even when they’r 80 plus without teeth and hair….We had been together for a better part of our lives but then it was destiny that i developed such a special bond with them…And yes Aarushi…I have tried to keep the language as simple as i can 🙂

Nayan and Dev (Finely Fickled Assholes)

Two words define their lives…..Football and Friends….. unprecedented winners and achievers in their own ways they are the jokers of the pack….It’s their beautiful sense of humor and intriguing charisma that makes them so bearable…Their genuine smiles can make your day….”Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.” One’s a mama’s boy the other is a rebel….I don’t know why i have tagged them together….but for a certain reason that i know….I’m not wrong to do so….One’s a drunkard while the other’s a teetotaler…One’s a hardcore Liverpool fan while the other worships Eric “The King” Cantona and Sir Alex Ferguson….They may be so apart from each other but still when they are together….It’s magic….Sarcasm and sadism’s most lethal combination that can even put to shame anyone in their way….It’s the purity of their hearts that strikes u the most…and that’s what stays there 🙂

Aarushi and Birju (When the world went :O)
Well here’s one of the most interesting and intriguing couple i’v ever seen….It’s like they’s just perfect for each other… some how in a magical way that perfectly compliments the way that they, their behaviors and their actions just fall out to be….It’s just beautiful to watch the synchrony that they have and the magic that they create when they get together…Their bonding is just a beauty to watch….Birju’s the all out “What the heck guy” to which Aarushi contrasts by her caring nature….Birju’s a hothead…a risk taker….Aarushi’s the calmest mind in the group…And boy don’t they look good together…Nuff said though….The Redneck and The Mother hen :D….My best wishes fellas XD
