There were a lady (let’s call her S) and a guy (let’s call him B) and both of them were in different colleges. There was no way in which they could have run into each other. B’s college decided to host a tech fest and B was asked to contact someone at S’s institute, but he ended up contacting her because he couldn’t contact the concerned person. Who knew that the ‘cross-connection’ was going to start a new story!
Both of them were very comfortable with each other. B and S never needed words to talk to each other. It’s their eyes that used to do the talking. They met once every 2 to 3 months. But their destiny had something else in store for them. They could not stay together forever. With a heavy heart, B and S had to part our ways. S got married after a few months. It was heartbreaking to B’s love getting married to someone else. B congratulated her on the day before her wedding and bid her farewell (at least, in this life).
Bidding farewell to someone makes us feel sad…but the memories…the time that you have spent with that person makes you feel even sadder. These moments become memories and reside in our mind and body forever.
It was hard for him to get back on track. But time is the best healer. 3 years have passed since then… During this period, B had never thought of seeing her in person again.
One day B was searching for a book in a library. When he found it and started to leave, he noticed a lady, very similar to S, entering the library. His mind told him that it can’t be her. He completely ignored her and continued walking. But as he reached closer, he was shocked to see S in front of him and she was also giving those surprising looks. Both of them stopped right there, where they were. Everything seemed to come to a standstill. Both of them smiled at each other. B went back in their memories. Everything flashed in front of his eyes. She looked the same since the last time he saw her. He then noticed the wedding ring that brought him back in the present.
They exchanged pleasantries and started talking like they used to earlier. Her smile could still melt his heart. He was feeling strange whenever he looked at her wedding ring, constantly reminding him to depart. B gathered all his courage and said goodbye. He turned around and started walking towards the exit. He had a lump in his throat. He wanted to turn around to say a final goodbye but he couldn’t.
B returned home and had several emotional outbursts. Throughout the night, he was wondering about S. Those few minutes took him back to the time that they have spent with each other. B wished to hug S and cry his heart out but he couldn’t talk to her properly.
All he wanted to say is, “Mohabbat karnewale kam na honge… teri mehfil mein lekin hum na honge”.
