A cab halts in front of a door numbered 12. Tessa pays for her ride and hurries to open the door while the cab driver saluted and left. Tessa with a lot of tension enters her house but all she could hear were sounds of laughter and giggles.  To her dismay, she finds unknown people literally being strangers seated, two men and women with a girl aged around 17 on the sofa.

“There she is” Tessa’s Mom Cynthia saw her and held her arm while she introduced Tessa to the crowd, with a confused look she smiled at them bowing her head in respect.

She later pulls her mom to a side and murmurs “what is happening here? I thought you were in trouble or something”

Her mom ignores the question and smiles at the guest seated and then she turned towards Tessa and said “Why don’t you go to your room and freshen up”

Tessa with a little annoyance walks into the room while the crowd in the hall are being served coffee and resumes talking. When she enters her room Tessa’s eyes widen in shock seeing a young man and her sister seated on her bed engrossed in a photo album with flowers and coffee placed on it.

“What’s going on here?” She asked with a confusion mounting in her voice. The Young man and her sister both looked up at her.

“Hey hi Tessa!” the young man said giving her an extremely charming smile.

“You know my name?” she said giving him a quizzical look.

“I know a lot more than your name.”

“Wow really? haha” she gives him a sarcastic laugh

He looks at her smiling and then replies “Well actually yes.”

She looked at him with arms crossed across her chest and then she spoke, “Well then! Could you take the privilege of explaining what’s going on here?” For which Ben nods his head stating a yes in return “Right! Well maybe I should, that’s my family out there who have come to meet their future daughter-in-law”.

Hearing it Tessa looks at her sister and then at him saying, “Don’t you think she’s too young for that

“If you put it across like that, then…” He points at her sister “Sister-in-law” and then points at Tessa saying “Daughter-in-law”

“Mister! This is not what is called as explaining”

“Okay! Let’s start from the beginning” Tessa sighs hearing it but curiosity doesn’t let her stay still

“Go on” Ben gives her a big smile before he could explain any further.

“Now from all the questions you’ve asked me this far. I’m kind of certain that you don’t know me at all…”

“That’s right, go ahead” Ben nods in reply

“But I do know you… very well in fact. We used to go to the same church, not now though… earlier, I’m…” He was saying as Tessa interrupted him in midair

“You are Adrian’s brother,” She said, there was silence from both ends. Few mins passed as they  looked at each other and Ben broke the silence saying,

“That’s quite a way to remember but well I do have a name…”

“Benjamin” Tessa blurted and Ben has never thought his name would sound this beautiful to him.

She looked into his eyes and he into hers, everything around them slowed and faded well at least that’s what they thought

“Sorry, it took me this long to remember,” she said with an apologetic expression

“That’s okay! Usually, happens the first time but I was confident you wouldn’t remember me certainly not my name” he replied looking amazed and happy that she remembered him including his name.

“Right! It’s been a long time well more like a long, long time ago. Anyways what’s with this daughter-in-law stuff?” Tessa asked him with the lingering curiosity.

“Oh, that one! Well, my parents wanted me to get married so I brought them here.” Ben replied so easily, and her anticipation just grew with his easiness.

“But why bring them here?” She asked

“Because you’re here” he replied looking directly into her eyes, reaching her soul.

“Whats wrong with you?” She said, stifling herself from his gaze

“Nothing is… Tessa! Things like this will take time to explain. If you give me time maybe I could…”

“Whatever is happening right here could you please slow it down.” She said cutting his conversation in mid-sentence.

“Well I’m surprised you didn’t ask me to stop,” Ben said smiling at her

“I didn’t want to be rude,” She said innocently. He again gave her his most charming smile and this time she couldn’t resist but to smile back.

Benjamin excused himself and left the room while Tessa sat on the bed with her little sister who was still busy glancing through the photos, who had no intention of interfering with their conversation.

As Benjamin entered the hallway, his mom looked at him and asked “so when’s the wedding?”

“Mom! Slow down a little I brought you here because you were so stubborn to see her. It’s little too much for her to take all this in, so please” He said looking at his mom with a “please understand look”. Just then Tessa’s mom spoke seeing the expression being passed between the mother and the son “She must have been shocked I guess. Why don’t we give them a little time?”

“That’s actually true! She didn’t expect any of this. So, little time would definitely help and thank you, aunty, for understanding”

“No problem, that’s okay. I’m happy we’ve got to meet at least” she said giving him an understanding smile.

“Yeah that makes two of us and I totally adore Tessa,” he said winking at her as she came out of her room.

They all took leave while Tessa stared at her mom for some serious explanation.

“Mom, really? Then why did I have to meet with David in the first place” she said and was waiting for her mom to answer.

 

What will her mom say?

Will she accept Benjamin or David?

One Little Conversation…

images

A conversation is a informal talk between two or more people in which news or ideas are exchanged. Isn’t that is what we learnt in school? We have conversations with ‘n’ number of people we meet in our journey of life. Some we cherish close to our heart and some we wish to forget. Be it a conversation with a stranger or a close one we do learn something out of every conversation. Now a days people don’t have time to have a face to face conversation but everything is told through a text. Be it Proposals or break up’s everything as become so easy with a single text. Probably that’s were the problem starts but we fail to recognize it. Expressions, words and tone of speech sums it up together which makes a conversation far better than a text or a mail.

Conversations teach us life lessons when we feel lost , gives us hope when we feel down, makes us laugh and puts our heart at ease. In this world of technology we forget what’s in front of us and live in a virtual world where reality seems far. Our heads are always bent looking at the technology in our hands where everything resides in our palm. It makes you stay connected with the other part of the world ignoring the place you live . Technology makes us become close with the people who are far in distance but what about the ones that live with us day in and day out? Be it anger, love or for that matter any kind of emotion it means a lot in person than any other medium of communication.

So …
Think …
When was the last time you had a real conversation? When was the last time you put your mobile down to actually talk or listen to someone? When was the last time you sat with someone just to speak?

So Take some time and put your gadget down.. go meet people and have real conversations because..
One conversation can change a person’s life.. might give someone hope.. might save someone from choosing a wrong path.. might give someone an idea to change the world … or might even bring meaning to someone’s life…

Let’s lift our heads and see the people around us. Spend time more with the people than with the gadgets and when you leave…

Make sure you leave them with a smile…😊

P.S : It’s time for real conversations in this robotic world..

The Deadly Challenge – Beware

The Blue Whale Challenge

35023544451_95b5dcddef_o

A twenty-two-year-old created a game,

With an entire group under a pen name,

Started from Russia and spread to regions as an online game,

And now it has shaken the entire world with horror,

Making all the mom’s and dad’s to entirely fear.

He called it the Blue whale hiding the atrocities within,

Making the pre teens and teens go addicted further resulting in death

Taking lives of not just one but a few and many of hundredths,

The Blue Whale gives a set of challenge that lasts for 50 days,

The participant is told to complete a particular horrible task each day,

Starting from carving the hand with a razor blade,

To jumping off a high building or a cliff and meeting the final stage,

Parents please beware of your children or to no avail,

Remember this isn’t a joke of calling oneself #IAmAWhale.

The boy who lived and always will… ❤ ❤ ❤

It’s been twenty years I fell in love this hard with this book, in fact, the complete series.  A never ending love that just kick started from the very first page.
It was this day that a world of magic was born.

I still can remember I was 11years old when I first picked this book among thousands of the other book in my school library for the first time. There was something about this book that the moment I pulled it out I wanted to read not just a page or two but the entire book.

The first book I read within the allotted time limit given by the librarian. She was shocked that I, in fact, returned it the next day.

“Did you read?” She asked with her stern eyes.
“Oh yes! The entire book” I said gleaming at her.

It did change everything, not just for me but millions of people. It was indeed because of this book I became an avid reader and a little bit of a writer and I’m proud of that. Harry Potter is just not a name, it’s much more and beyond.

It’s a legacy for millions of harry potter nerds who have become to be a part of it and just cannot part from it. I have laughed, giggled, cried and lived with this series. In fact, I totally grew up with it. Obsession can never be this amazing. A harry potter fan would completely understand what I mean. Waiting for the book to arrive, tear open the cover and not just hold but hug the book for minutes and sometimes even hours and then at a stretch finish it.

For me, Harry Potter opened up a world of imagination, love for reading and taught me to enjoy the world beyond the pages of paper. And this is one thing that I want and will pass on to my generations to come. If you’ve read Harry Potter you are simply my type of person. If you have read you know what you haven’t missed, if you have not you will never know what you have truly missed.

And for the people who think they are too old to read this series… THIS IS A BOOK FOR ALL AGES…

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”

P.S Thank you, JK for bringing this awesome book to us and making our childhood an amazing one …

Hogwarts will always be home ❤ ❤ ❤

The END

A very happy Twenty Five…

It’s that day of the year that comes once in a while…

It’s that day of the year were people who barely know you makes an effort to wish you and bring a smile.

It’s that day of the year where people who knew you for decades forgets to wish you on the very day. (guess they didn’t check FB 😛 )

It’s that day of the year where your phone keeps ringing from day on till night.

It’s that day of the year where your notifications keeps pouring in only because Facebook remembered you and begged people to wish you! 😛

It’s that day of the year where no matter how old you turn, you still become a child.

It’s that day of the year where you blow the candle still hoping for the wishes to come true.

It’s that day of the year where you get a chance to start new.

It’s that day of the year where a single text from a faraway friend means a lot.

It’s that day of the year where you feel special for a simple thing like being remembered.

It’s that day of the year where you do not regret growing older because you know its a privilege denied to many.

It’s that day of the year where you know being alive is life’s greatest blessing.

It’s that day of the year where you get to eat a lot of cake 😛

It’s that day of the year where you wish yourself when the clock strikes 12.

It’s that day of the year were you wake up feeling happy yet confused.

Music that’s made Visible…

She sat near the window with a curious gaze

From where she had the perfect view

For there he stood, her heart beats a little slow

More handsome than the Greek gods were ever made

Across the floor he stared at her with a constant gaze

Making her fumble with an innocent smile

He crossed the oceans of beautiful girls

Heading straight towards her in one large stride

Asking her for a dance with a silent gaze

She nodded a yes seeing him kneel

They stood together, his hands a firm grip

This made them look more like a couple with a fantastic mix

The music played and his hands wrapped around her slender waist

Breath shortened, eyes met and the crowd praised

Legs turned, bodies bent and hearts raced

There was a mystery in the way their body swayed

They never had a chance to be life partners

But became the perfect partners in the world of dances were made…

And Happily Ever After…

A lonely road
With a heavy downpour
She stood drenched and cold
With her bike which stood close by
Portraying to be dead inside

A distant light
A car zoomed by
Making her skirt fly a little high
Freezing her hands and thighs
For which she cursed a little inside

The sound of the engine
Made her hopes high
Stopped at a distance with a man inside
Her legs froze to the ground as she saw him step outside

A step closer he took
A step backward she took
“Can I offer help?” he says
As a  street light shone on his face
She gasped as she knew who he was

A silence crept
as her lips trembled to speak
“This isn’t a scene from your movie” she finally blurted
“Well I’m not trying to play a villain but a hero” he added
“But still you’re a man and I’m a girl” she insisted

A smile passed between his lips
“The world knows me” he exclaimed
“But how does that make me trust you” she questioned
“How about this” he said
as he snapped a selfie with her.

He posted the picture with 140 characters
“Now the entire planet will know you’re with me? “He uttered
She smiled, for she trusted him inside
Now the world not only knows them by name
But also as husband and wife…
