Aur Phir Ek Din….. [Part 1]

RamS was not at all happy….
It had been 2 years since he was working in same company in Puna.
It was high time his employer awarded him with an onsite assignment And now suddenly they were sending him to chennai for 3 months assignment.And Rams Had to relent as they had promised to send him to onsite from chennai,besides there were few friends working there. So with heavy heart he packed the bags and moved to chennai,he had no girlfriend either to whom he was going to leave behind . so he was kinda ok with the fact that he was going to see new place…. He went nuts to begin with.Humidity, the language ,the food, everything…. only respite were his college friends(Nitin and Sumit and their roomies ) who were working there and AC accomodation he was offered which was protecting him from chennai`s weather….

Weekends were spent mostly on BesantNagar beach,watching movies at Satyam ,visits to Pondychery,Tirupati.
But life was too monotonous after a month or so.Onsite chances also were taking time.Not much work either.He was wondering where life was heading and was it worth making move from puna to chennai.

One saturday ,after a movie and a sumptuous dinner with friends,he headed back to his guesthouse.There was an ATM 100 meters away from his guesthouse.He withdrew money and got out of ATM.

He heard a sweet voice ,it was a pretty girl talking to somebody.
“Excuse me , Do you have change for five…?”Some noise and he couldnt listen properly.
He was moving on.
“Excuse me”
Now he turned back.
The girl was talking to him all along.Now it didnt happen too many times that a pretty girl was asking him something ,his luck had never been that strong.

“Yeah ” .He acknowledged her presence.
She was beautiful,that quizzical look on her face made her look even more beautiful.
She looked bit traditional to him,but very confident.And she was in bit if hurry as well.
And his hand fumbled in his pocket to get the change.
Even if he had no changes,he would have run all the way to the nearest shop to get the change for her .
But he remembered he just withdrew 2000 bucks and there sure were five notes of hundreds.
So he got them out and gave them to her.
There was a puzzled look on her face.
“Am I missing something here?” Rams Thought.
“I want change for five rupees”,She said slightly hesitatingly.
He looked back on the road .There was auto wallah waiting for her and then he understood what exactly was happening.
“these girls..” He thought .”They would think of even a buck when it comes to bargaining.”

He checked for change in his pocket.And he came up with 2 coins .One of one rupee and other of 2 Rs.So there was deadlock again.Both didnt know what should be done.
“I had to pay the auto driver 71 Rs.” She blurted.

“You can keep one rupee ” ,and he kept a rupee on her hand.

“Oh no,I can’t accpet that “.She said.

“Ok,we will do one thing ,Take five rupees and give me three rupees you have” Girl said.

“I cant do that either” Rams protested.

“oh thats fine with me”.She took the change and kept the note of five rupees in his hand. “Thank you” she flashed that beautiful smile.

“I will retun your 2 bucks” Rams managed to say who was yet to recover from the magical effect of that smile.

She smiled again acknowledging his promptness.

All those filmi dialgues which were tailor made for this scence rushed through his mind “Duniya bohot chhoti jagah hai,ghumte phirte kahin na kahin mil hi jayenge”He resisted the urge to blurt out something like that.

And the pretty lady disappeared in a short while with her luggage….

    Cool, nice narration. Hey btw just a small comment: the paras seem to be playing with the justification. They spill abruptly. Maybe you could check the HTML.

    BTW this reminded me of the “2 Indians waiting to be introduced to a female on an island” joke 😀

    Thanks Pavan.Yeah,I am not entirely comfortable with WordPress and formatting aspects as of now.Shall sort them out soon.Avunu Pavan,This somewhat resembles to that story,our hero forgot to ask for name / contact number.Anyway asking for these details to girl in chennai is risky proposition 🙂
