I didnt screw up this time!!

College life is going to be over..We are now in our final years..very hard to accept the fact that three years rolled just like that..
We realize that time has somehow slipped away and soon we will be saying good-bye..No more seniors to look at..Now I really wish to be a boy..I mean look at the boys of my class..they are eagerly waiting to meet the fresh faces..while we girls have none to wait for..:( :(..OVER..everything is over..No more seniors to peek at OH NO!!!!
Now we wish we could be younger.

The main twist came when our class got shifted to the one at the corner from where you could see nothing but pure landscape..Oh I miss my third year class, the one in front of the water cooler..A peek at the cooler would be enough to withstand any boring lectures..From mechanical to electronics each and everyone had to pass via our class..ALL THANKS TO THE COOLER :D..But now things are not the same..we are in fourth year..the so called SUPER SENIORS ARGH!!

Yeah right our condition is worse..I wonder why our college didn't have PG courses.The only time pass for now is to watch the guys from mechanical department who are of our same batch..Well they aren't that good like their old seniors though..But now that we are disposed to a corner classroom even it has become difficult to see at least one royal mech.(Well I still dont know why mechanical engineering students considered themselves to be royal..it still remains as an unsolved mystery.).Well we are seriously thinking of placing the cooler in front of our class..I hope you guys have got a clear picture now..yeah we are kind of living in SAHARA DESERT..We often keep recollecting our first year days..when there were more than 10 faces eager to meet us..PHEW!!! The crushes we had on our seniors and how life just froze after their farewell..The countless reasons we had for going to the college store.The immense happiness when the so called crush gave a simple hi or returned a smile...WOW LIFE WAS GOOD!!

Yeah most of the idiots in my gang had crush right that includes me too..Unlike others I got the golden opportunity to meet mine..In fact he himself called me one day but it was with the tag senior on his forehead..Well..I spoiled the first impression..I was literally trembling and shaking in front of him..I couldn't even talk properly..Everything from my mouth came out as a whisper..
But even after that embarrassing incident I didn't stop peeking at him..ARE!!there's no harm in admiring someone..Silent admiration doesn't hurt does it??

It took a week to know his name properly..but didn't take a second to search for him in ORKUT..:D yeah FB wasn't popular that time... :D But he was the royal one and my super senior so it was legally forbidden to send a request..Now being the Einstein I am I made it sure to visit his profile daily..And finally orkut gave me the surprise i was waiting for..."Mr V wants to be your friend..BINGO!!! After a brief discussion with my idiot gang I accepted the request...Well.. to be frank I was anyway going to accept the request... ;)..

What else guys nothing happened..very few chats...Whenever I saw him online I would start to pray "Oh God please make him to type a hello please"but later I would be the one typing it :D ..Years passed through few chats and glimpses..and they left the college..I don't think none remembers their farewell like us..Yup the royal batch of that year gained hell lot of admirers..For us college life just froze there..

You cant predict what life has in store for you..I never expected him to be my friend but destiny made him to be one..We were in contact through texting and chats..And I regretted every now and then for screwing up the first meet..I did want to talk that day but everything from my mouth turned out to be a whisper...I regretted for trembling before him and for making a complete idiot of myself..I wished to change the impression I had left..

Today while walking through the corridors we were recollecting all these moments..And once again i regretted for being so silly...The vibration of my cell woke me up from my thoughts..A message from the royal senior aha better to put it as royal alumni..stating that he was standing right in front of the college..I had my mouth wide open.."God why do you have to grant a wish so faaast??"
Well my idiot gang searched every nook and corner and declared that the whole are was safe.So he was joking aha ! I was bold again.. So messaged him back with a STOP FOOLING AROUND reply..
Just at the time of lunch break..my cell rang..showing the name of someone whom I never expected would call..MR V!! GOSH!!!Texting was fine but to call that too to call me..something impossible which clearly indicated only one thing that he has come... he has come to college..I managed to pick the call up..yeah the news was expected..he was right there near to our college store...BOLDNESS JUST VANISHED!!

Two questions were battling through my mind as I was rushing down the stairs
One : He came.. he did come... didn't he??
Two: I am going to meet him...woo will I screw it again??
Everything was quick thereafter.He was there sitting below the acacia tree with that familiar smile..Okay shruthi there is nothing to worry about..You are the super senior now he is just an alumni..so chill...
He was sitting there with a grin..I stood there and showered him with non stop blahs..some of which I cant even recollect now..I kept changing my positions to not let him know that my legs were trembling..After few secs it was all fine I was comfortable..I assumed myself to be a business corporate who had come to make a deal..Finally when he was about to leave he asked for the treat that I had promised..
Shruthi ROUND 1 is over and here's the next ROUND U NEED TO FACE..I just smiled forgetting the fact that I was looking like crap as I was deprived of sleep ..I consoled myself remembering the fact that " Beauty is not in the face but beauty is a light in the heart.."

Well the story didn't end there..He gave me a treat although I couldn't eat any..Met another alumni for the treat who belonged to my department..Well yeah I dint know this guy..Friends with a senior who isn't from my department and stranger to another who is from my department..wow Shruthi GOOD JOB!!I handled the whole situation like an interview from a Multi national company..I am sure that the royal alumni was taken aback seeing my improved version..With a handshake and a good luck wish to them I left the place feeling extremely happy with myself..

This post is about two individuals..born and brought up in different circumstances...unknown to each other...till time made them to tie the knot with each other...Funny eh?? Time acts in a strange way....

She was the eldest one in her family..She lost her mom when she was just 10 or 12...She missed her mom's care and affection..but life taught her to be strong to be independent..Her father wasn't a bad one..he was a man of principles..who loved his kids more than anything but rarely showed or expressed his love for them..For the sake of his younger kids..he decided to re-marry..The kids got their new mom...She was a contrast to the concepts of step mom we had for ages..The girl got to experience the once lost mothers care n affection..By now she was more responsible..she gave preference to her brothers than to herself..Her role was more of a mother than of a sister to her siblings....

Though she wasn't tat brilliant..she loved to study, science was her favourite subject..But her father's view was different..he was least interested in her studies..neither did he wanted her to get a job..He believed that earning income was not a girls cup of tea...She was scared of her father..she nodded obediently to all his views..She loved her college she loved her friends..she treasured her college days..She hated whenever she was asked to bunk her classes to meet some unknown guy and his family..who had come with a promise of a great future for her...

He was the eldest one in his family..he was a narrow minded,systematic,inexpressive, brilliant guy.His family wasn't financially sound.He completed his B tech in a reputed institution..he had to go for part-time jobs to support his studies..He worked hard for his family and he taught his sister and got her a job as a teacher..He tried ways to support his younger brother but he was unsuccessful..He was not a guy who tried to find time for his friends..may be it was because he was in a hurry to keep his family stable...he wasn't an introvert kinda person..he was short tempered..and for him spending time for others was like asking for too much.. whatever he travelled throughout the path of life without a comrade..he lacked a friend..His college days could never present him with a best friend..a good-friend..but he did find friends who introduced new habits in his life..of which smoking haunts him till now....

Two completely different individuals "HE" and "SHE"..and finally destiny decided to bring them together..She met him for the first time at her home..she was asked to bunk her college to meet yet another unknown guy..To her surprise she couldn't find him..she was welcomed by his father's face at her home..There after everything was so quick..the girl met the boy, she could find traces of her father's character in him..even he was a guy who was of the view that earning income was not a girl's cup of tea.. all she had to do was to have some degree and then devote her entire life to look after her husband and kids...The date was fixed and the two individuals who never knew each other tied the knot on an auspicious day..Two strangers thrown together forever, for years, and expected to make it!"

She was a good mother, a good wife..she never complained about the busy schedules of her husband..she was used to all these in her early life..He couldn't keep his official life and private life in different levels..He wanted to have a safe secure life for his kids..he continued to find means to support his parents and his brother..He went abroad when he got a better job..and spent there 5 years of his life..He was still in a rush to fulfill the dreams he had for his kids..He was a proud father of two..Somewhere in his hurry to find a balance and in her decision to sacrifice her likes for others..they both lost time for themselves..they lost their time in connecting with each other..
Their marriage life did see ups and downs..could be quoted as the critical years of their life due to all the habits he acquired during his college life..But it helped the kids to be stronger..taught them what life can be!!

Realizations often occur late..but it do occur..And strangely for him it took years..
when she was hospitalized for a surgery..and through the days of her bed rest..he started to realize the role of the woman in his life..its not that he didnt love her..could say he took her for granted ..He is trying to regain the lost time..though he rarely succeeds..:) she laughs at his attempts and remarks " You are mad..!!"

Though they were two strangers when they married,.completely different individuals..with no common likes..., through the years ..they did develop some unseen connection that kept their relation going..They both find that there is still more to discover about each other,more that is ledft to surprise and startle..If you ask me whether they were perfect for each other..whether they could have found better partners..I am sorry I dont have an answer..but theres one thing I am so sure about..
