A Diary

It was lovely morning  . The sounds  of  birds chirping and the commotion from the vehicles passing by, had awakened her. She rose from her bed, stretched and went to the mirror .She saw herself  in the mirror and felt something strange about her face. She then started scribbling in the  diary , which dated 13th Feb 2001. Writing diary is one of her favourite hobby and she does that every day, with out fail.

"It's my 16th birthday" She exclaimed to herself  “Hope I will have a good day ahead” .
She tied her long hair in an utmost fashioned way and excitedly went in to the bathroom . Though it’s her birthday today, She still have to go to school.Infact the thought of  school,has enthralled  her. She is so desperate to see all the presents from her friends. She then had a shower, dressed herself , packed the books back in to the bag . Suddenly the room is filled with delicious aroma of the dishes on the dining table.

“How thoughtful  Mom is, She really loves me a lot”  She exclaimed while she placed her bag on to the next chair

But she hadn’t seen her Mom yet, as well as her dad, her younger brother . “Oh! Dad must have gone to his work.My brother? I bet he is still sleeping.Mom surely went to market to prepare special food for my birthday” And she went on to dining room, to have her breakfast .

Right after finishing her breakfast , She approached her school bag ,which to her surprise is missing . “Oh! Surely I have  kept it here,few minutes before .Maybe someone is playing with me, must be my younger brother.He always makes fun of me” .  she entered in to her brother’s room to ask him about the missing school bag ,but she didn’t find him there. She thought that her brother is hiding somewhere and put some little play on her.She still have half hour to find him,she knew she can’t go to school without the school bag .

She looked around the house, checked every room, but no luck . She looked at her wristwatch “I still got 15 minutes, I have to find my brother, atleast my school bag .The school bus will be here anytime by now” 

She went back to her room and found the diary on the floor. She took hold of it, and placed it back on the table,Where she notices something strange about the diary .The diary looks old,as if it had gone through many years. "I bought this diary a month back.I remember, I saw it looking neat and tidy,earlier this morning” She thought . She opened the diary and dumbfounded by what she saw. The pages were yellowish, like the pages were decade old now 

“This can’t be!” She squalled 

She looks confused coz of what happening around her .Hoping to get some fresh air,she went towards the window and got the sight of newspaper delivery boy. She remembered the delivery boy, he used to bring the broadsheets to her. This isn’t him. He is someother guy.As the delivery boy looked at the window , fears written all over him .He stormed out of that place on his bicycle leaving the newspaper bundle then and there,in no time .He didn’t even looked back and the bundle of newspapers went unnoticed 

She realizes he’s not the one, who used to deliver the newspapes before,but why the sudden rush?
She goes outside, picked the newspapers and decided to get back in to the house.
As she enters in to the house, suddenly the room is filled with queer darkness.She then realized the tall trees sheltered around the house. She never seen these trees before. How could I get out and get in , even without noticing these trees.

She goes off to her bedroom ignoring these mixed thoughts ,still holding the bundle of newspaper.She fell her body on to the bed reading the newspaper.while she was reading the front page, something has strucked her.She was dumbstricken.

She hastily opens her diary ,it was dated feb 13th 2001 . but why the newspaper has the date feb 13th 2011 . “Is this a typographical error “?

“This can’t be!” She couldn’t believe her eyes and fell out unconsciousness

                                                       *    *     *

The youngman on the bicycle came home and his grandmother notices him petrified  and horrified . The boy explains to her what he saw , when he passed by along the road, Where the huge bunglow lies.

 “Oh!  So you saw Arushi!”


 “Arushi have been dead for 10 years now .She was murdered on her birthday,the case has not been resolved yet .People say that every year she used to appear around her house ,on her birthday”

 “That’s really frightening, grand ma”

 “No! you shouldn’t be frightened, let’s pray for her soul, to be at peace.

Valentine's day

                    Finally "V" day has arrived. The day when the heart beats more than most days for few. The day when people if single (not all singles though :p) propose, the day where the love quotient is high in the air.Yes! the V day,it is indeed arrived .This  Valentines day was actually  named after the famous christian matyr saint Valentine.

                    I must confess , being single for  last 21 years of my life , I am having a hardtime writing this post.I am glad that am not left alone, most of my friends were single.And if you really ask me about this  valentines day,it's not a "girl" and the "boy" thing. It is the day where we express love to all Closed one's ,to our parents,to our siblings ,to our friends,

                    During valentine season,the news papers are completely crammed with the discounts and offers.The malls are so overcrowded with couples .We will be seeing too many colour reds, when we get out of our homes.and Least to mention our mobile phones ,that are mercilessly  spammed with all the Valentine wishes.

                    It is also one of the best days for few political parties to score some political points.Hiding in the name of India culture,they make sure that ,the relevance remains.St valentine died longtime back and became  symbol of modern expression of love, but day dedicated for him became symbol of  resistance too for few political parties.

                    But i do think that indian culture is about love and can never be against love . what is wrong in  having a date for it .Valentine is not about one religion,but it's about symbolism .Coming to the political parties,if they have point,in democracy they do have right to raise their voice.but not in that way they kept on displaying.
                    Infact the way  these parties oppose Valentine's day,that way is strictly against indian culture.Isn't it ? .

Anyway I m glad that i m single, Happy Valentines day :)

A Regret

A woman awoke during the night to find that her husband was not in bed. She put on her robe and went downstairs. He was sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appeared to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.
She saw him wipe a tear from his eye and take a sip of his coffee.
“What’s the matter dear? Why are you down here at this time of night?” she asked.
“Do you remember twenty years ago when we were dating and you were only 16?” he asked.
“Yes, I do,” she replied.
“Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?”
“Yes, I remember.”
“Do you remember when he shoved that shotgun in my face and said, ‘Either you marry my daughter or spend twenty years in jail’?”
“Yes, I do,” she said.
He wiped another tear from his cheek and said, ” You know, I would have gotten out today. ”

A jouney in the RTC bus

                           I decided to take a bus to college.There are many people waiting for the same bus,middle aged uncles were outnumbered to be precise.It was a rush hour.The bus that has stopped was already full,somehow we managed to get in to the bus.Suddenly i heard some voices from the door,Middle aged uncles started abusing Drver for stopping the bus 10meters away from the busstop.I didn't understand why people get agry for such a silly reasons.Can't a person take a pain of walking mere 10 meters.

                     Someone patted my shoulder murmuring something.I turned back and found a guy,hair uncombed,and the dress as dingy as ever.He looked like a guy who didn't knew what taking bath meant.He is a conductor .I politely showed my bus pass and minded my ownbusiness

                     As the bus was so crowded,I find difficult to hold the handle.The abuses of middle aged uncles became stronger as conductor approched towards them.Now conductor couldn't control himself,replied harshly to them.The Fight started and lasted for full 10 minutes.The abuses fled in all directions.Some took side of uncles,some took side of conductor and some people consoled both the groups.At last frustrated conductor cooled down,and never to mention uncles still frowning,murmuring something

                    After sometime,the silence that was hung in the air broke by the low agitated voices again.Now the problem was,bus is going way too slow,to top of it off,they are claiming that,the bus driver wantedly driving slow.The voices getting stronger again with each passing second.That was the most insane thing i have ever heard,Why would driver drive the bus slow purposely.if he can drive fast? What does he get by doing that?. He has been sitting on a piece of wood covered with cloth for God knows how long.his ass might be killing him.Never to mention the heat that is produced by the engine beside he was bearing.

                    Now the low agitated voices targetted the conductor again,they were angry coz conductor stopped the bus in each and every stop.Now this is really insane,a few moments back they were angry because the driver has stopped the bus 10mts away from the stop,now they were trashing conductor for making all the stops.

                     I just couldn't wait to get off the bus.My stop came,I can still hear the voices,Some were abusing ,some were demanding.The conductor and driver faced the angry agitated group.

                     Besides they have own problems to worry about other than people,the bus engine is old and not working properly,and the gear lever is not at all smooth.The conductor having a hard time to manage change,for every 100 rupee note that was showed up.He then had a piece of paper to fill up after each and every stop,he had to look if everyone had a ticket or bus pass.

                      As i walked after getting from the bus.I couldn't help but think about the conductor and the driver,how can someone take pains every day and still go on with their work,saying nothing.What could they be thinking? Do they spend every minute of their cursing.

                      Now i am really sorry for them,From now whenever i take the bus,I will smile at driver,think if is the first smile he had seen in months or years
