Why not give it a try...

This is my first short story(yippeeeeeey!!!). I'm so jobless these days that I've started writing stories :D

Warning: Don't expect much.

Disclaimer: All characters are fictional.

The thunder roared outside. It sounded like a train had derailed. Ajay got up from his bed and went to the kitchen. He poured some milk in a vessel, kept it on the stove and lit it.

“Ajay, Pleaseeeeeeeeee!!! I wanna meet you today. Its important”, She said. This was the fourth time Reshma was calling him.
“But dear I have so much work to finish”
“Just one hour. Please please pleaseeee…..”
Ajay couldnot refuse it. He had always loved the way Reshma convinced him to do things.
“Ok. Just an hour. I will pick you up at 8. We’ll go for dinner”
“Oh dear, so nice of you. Love you loads”

Ajay cut the call. He set an alarm in his mobile, so that he wont forget this. He din’t wanna hear those lectures from her about how long she had waited for him, how much she is missing being with him, how he used to spend most of his time with her and how he has changed now.

“I am waiting outside your house”,Ajay called Reshma and said.
“You are here so soon? Just two minutes dear”
Ajay knew what it meant. He opened his laptop and started checking mails.

The milk had boiled. Ajay turned off the stove and poured the milk in a cup. He added sugar and coffee powder to it, took a spoon and went back to his room.
He opened the window. Cool breeze swept his face. Ajay closed his eyes for a few seconds to have the feel of it. He stirred the coffee with the spoon, then took a sip.

“Hey honey”,she said.
“Sorry for keeping you waiting. I thought you’ll be a lil late”,Reshma said before he could say anything and smiled at him. It was the same kiddish smile with a spark of naughtiness in her eyes for which he had fallen.
“Its ok”,Ajay said, “So what is it that you wanted to talk about?”
“Oh that… hehehee.. There is someone special joining our family today. I want you to name him”, saying so Reshma showed him a kitten’s photo in her mobile.
Ajay smiled.
He always had a feeling that she would leave him someday. When she said she wanted to meet him and its important, he was expecting some bad news. Pheww! He felt relieved.
“Tinu”, he said.
“How chweeet!!!”

A drop of water fell into the cup.

Climax 1:
Ajay din’t care to wipe off his tears. If only Reshma had not travelled in that train.

That day was still fresh in his mind. Reshma was lying in the ICU with blood all over her body. She wanted to talk to him for one last time. Ajay went in. He touched her hands. She opened her eyes and looked at him. She held his hand and said her last words, “Love you” and smiled at him. She managed to smile for him hiding all her pain. It was the same kiddish smile with a spark of naughtiness in her eyes for which he had fallen. Her smile froze.
Ajay could not believe what had just happened. The world around him stood still. He wanted to tell her that he loved her too.

He could no longer control his emotions. He dropped the cup and broke down crying and shouting,”Love you too… love you too”

Climax 2:
Ajay din’t mind. A drop of rain water in his coffee won’t do any harm. He was too much engrossed in watching the rain’s beauty. He kept the cup on the window sill still looking outside. When he wanted to take another sip, the cup was missing.
“Searching for something honey?”,Reshma asked.
She smiled at him and sat on the bed.The cup was in her hand. Tasting the coffee, she said,”Hey not bad! My hubby is making awesome coffee these days” and smiled again. It was the same kiddish smile with a spark of naughtiness in her eyes for which he had fallen.
He smiled back.
“Love you”,She said.
“Love you too”

Dei... Maadasamy! :P

Being a 'Software Engineer', I've started liking this IT culture of calling people by their names. Whoever it is.. even those HRs who are over 50yrs of age are addressed by their names. And the best part is they insist that we call them by their names. WOW!!! I'm loving it!

Soon things will get even better and the day when I'll call out 'dei Maadasamy' is not far away! :P

Why teachers were scared of me...

'Jack and Jill went up the hill'
OMG! I'm telling their moms right away.

'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall'

Mr.Dumpty has fallen down and the teacher is happily singing rhyms here. Bad role model!

'Two little dicky birds sitting on a wall'
For heaven's sake! Leave them alone!

'Peter Peter pumkin eater
Had a wife and couldn't keep her'

He should not have married in the first place.

'Hot cross buns
Hot cross buns'

I'm hungry!

'Bah, bah, black sheep
Have you any wool'

Excuse me! Are you talking to a SHEEP???! (OMG)

"Johny, Johny, yes, papa"
Listening to class, no,papa
Look at the teacher, hahaha!

'Mary had a little lamb
Its fleece was white as snow'

A tiger ate that lamb.

NO...This is not happening!

Had such an embarassing day. Thanks to my sister who has just now returned home from her fourth honeymoon..hehee ;)

I was quite jobless today(as usual) and was forwarding mails to my friends. Got an awesome mail from one of my friends and it had photos of a tourist resort in Kerala. As usual, I forwarded it to all my friends. Then forgot about it(Why would I want to remember.. I was not planning my honeymoon there... hehee)

After lunch, when I came back to my cubicle(the temporary one which I declared as 'my territory' after I found out that it wasnot allocated to anyone else), one of my friends asked me,"Hey.. Who is Deepika?"
I proudly said,"My sister"
"See your mail"
I very innocently opened my mailbox. Meanwhile my friend said,"She has 'replied to all' for ur mail"

My sis had 'by mistake'(this is what she said.. but i don't believe her) clicked on 'Reply to all' instead of 'Reply' and written, "Planning to go to this place for your honeymoon? ;)"

You can guess how I would have been teased by my friends (I don't wanna call them 'my friends' anymore :( )

And some ever loving sweethearts, who were unable to come in person to tease me were kind enough to mail it.

My bad days are not yet over!

Almost right! :)

Yaay!!! I was almost correct with my prediction about the weather. It din't rain today.. atleast not till I reached my apartment gate.

And when it started raining, I managed to reach home without getting drenched.

Cheers!!! :)

To take or not to take

Today evening while I was returning home from OFFICE (yessssssss office... no more a student!), it started raining. As it was very hot in the morning, I din't expect it would rain in the evening. So no umbrella... got drenched! :)

Usually, I find people taking their umbrellas with them, the next day.. i.e., after they totally get drenched that day, they decide to take an umbrella the next day and you guessed it right! It won't rain that day.

So friends... I've decided not to take my umbrella tomorrow :)

See.. such bold decisions I'm taking these days! I'm a grown up now.

PS: Note pannungappa.. note pannungappa

Bad donkey, Small wall

After quite a long time, I'm visiting my blog. Feels great.... !
This is where I belong

I'm coming across so many people these days... its surprising that everybody is funny in their own way.

Yesterday night when I was returning home in train, the TT asked for my ID proof. I gave him my driving licence... seeing my licence,

TT: tamizha?
me: yes
TT: appo thamizhlayae paesirukalamae
(I know that I'm a tamilian... how the hell will I know that u r also one?)

Another time, in a hotel..
Server: Order madam
Me: dosa
Server: Onion uthappam?
Me: dosa
Server: uthappam
me: dosa... PLAIN DOSA!!
Server: onion uthappam
(Yedho onnu.. konduvandhu thola)

server(to my friend): madam?
friend: sweet lime juice
server: lime juice and sweet... what sweet madam? halwa.. jalebi.. barfi

Once me and my friend went to collect a courier that I'd got...
The delivery place was somewhere in a food court inside our campus. So we went to a lady working in the FC and asked

friend: excuse me! where is the courier delivery counter?
lady: delivery counter?
me: yeah
lady: that is meals delivery counter... this is tiffin delivery counter
(enna koduma sir!)
me: okay.. thank you!

@ our campus, to get the laundry coupon we had to swipe our debit cards for 20rs. As we had just then joined, we dint have our debit cards issued.
So, we asked a guy, who had come to get laundry coupon, whether he could swipe his card for us also... and we would pay him 20rs in cash.
He nodded his head.. and we thought everything was going on fine... till he opened his purse and gave us 20rs.
daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaai... iruvadhu roobaiku kooda vazhi illamala inga vandhurukom...
Had to explain everything again to him... still, I'm not sure whether he understood whatever we said that day.

Another day, we went to watch the movie 'ghajini' in hindi. After the movie was over, one guy was explaining the difference between tamil ghajini and the hindi one to his friend.
guy: tamil la rendu villain da... double action!
rendu paerum orae maadhiri irupaanga...
rendu paerum chinna vayasula irundhae twins ahm..

God!!! Save this world!!!
