Thought for the Day: Life is not easy




Thought for the Day: Life is not easy

Often, life is not easy. But then, it doesn't really have to be easy to be great. Meaningful achievement is never easy. And yet, as difficult as it is, that achievement will bring great satisfaction, value and inspiration to your life.

Relationships are not easy. However, those relationships can bring immense richness to every aspect of your existence.

Even so, when you choose to deal with life's challenges and difficulties as they come, you are able to transform them. You have the opportunity to transform those ups and downs, those frustrations, discomforts and inconveniences into genuine fulfillment.

Thought for the Day: Power of peace



Thought for the Day: Power of peace

Put the power of peace into your thoughts. Feel the power of peace throughout your life.

When your thoughts are focused on conflict, those thoughts are in conflict with each other. That drains their power and effectiveness away.

Instead of looking for excuses to be in conflict, think of reasons to be at peace. Instead of always striving to get an advantage, allow the ultimate advantage of peace to easily and naturally flow from your center.

Your true purpose is not in conflict with anything. Though you will always face challenges, you never have to fight.

For you can meet those challenges with love and grace and the positive power of peaceful purpose. Instead of getting caught up in the conflict, with the power of peace you can find a positive way to successfully move beyond it.

No one can take peace away from you when you step forward and offer it first. Keep peace in your thoughts, and put real, meaningful power in your life.

Thought for the Day: Receiving abundance



Thought for the Day: Receiving abundance

The way to receive life's abundance is to express it. The way to receive life's abundance is to do something creative and useful with it.

There is always something valuable that you can create with your time, your thoughts and actions. Whatever you're able to create may not be something you particularly desire or require, but that's ok. Because there are other people who wish to have it, and who will happily pay you for it with something else of value to you.

Through your own unique perspective, you can transform that raw, formless abundance into specific, tangible value. That is how wealth is created, and there is no limit to how much of it you can create.

Thought for the Day: Rich detail


Thought for the Day: Rich detail

What exactly do you want? What are the specific results you wish to achieve? If you only have a vague idea of what you'd like, you're simply not going to get it. For it's impossible to reach a destination that doesn't even exist.

To get what you want, you absolutely must define exactly what that is. Give yourself a clear, meaningful target and you'll then be able to successfully hit that target.

Make the goal real in your mind. Integrate it into the way your body feels, with all the clear and wonderful details.

Give rich detail to your goal, and keep that goal close to you at all times. Then you'll surely and steadfastly take the actions that will indeed make it real in your life.

Stupid and so beautiful all at the same time ! . ! . ! . !

" If GOD answers ur prayer, he is increasing ur faith.
If HE delays, he is increasing ur patience.
If HE doesn't answer, HE knows U CAN handle it perfectly !!! "

The Silent Treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment.

Suddenly, the man realized that the next day,he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
"Please wake me at 5:00 AM " He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight.  Furious, he was about to go and
see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by
the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.


A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied , "in-laws"

"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
"So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked.
"No," she replied, " but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...
30,000 to a man's 15,000.
   The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
The wife responded, "Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!"

A man and his wife were having an argument about who
should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first,
and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."
The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament
and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says
.........."HE BREWS"

God may have created man before woman,
but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.


Dengue Fever Remedy


Dengue Fever Remedy
I would like to share this interesting discovery from a classmate's son who has just recovered from dengue fever. Apparently, his son was in the critical stage at the ICU when his blood platelet count drops to 15 after 15 liters of blood transfusion.

His father was so worried that he seeks another friend's recommendation and his son was saved. He confessed to me that he gave his son raw juice of the papaya leaves. From a platelet count of 45 after 20 liters of blood transfusion, and after drinking the raw papaya leaf juice, his platelet count jumps instantly to 135. Even the doctors and nurses were surprised. After the second day he was discharged. So he asked me to pass this good news around.

Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves, 2pcs just cleaned and pound and squeeze with filter cloth. You will only get one tablespoon per leaf.. So two tablespoon per serving once a day. Do not boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will loose its strength. Only the leafy part and no stem or sap. It is very bitter and you have to swallow it like "Won Low Kat". But it works.

*Papaya Juice - Cure for Dengue*

You may have heard this elsewhere but if not I am glad to inform you that papaya juice is a natural cure for dengue fever. As dengue fever is rampant now, I think it's good to share this with all.

A friend of mine had dengue last year.. It was a very serious situation for her as her platelet count had dropped to 28,000 after 3 days in hospital and water has started to fill up her lung. She had difficulty in breathing. She was only 32-year old. Doctor says there's no cure for dengue. We just have to wait for her body immune system to build up resistance against dengue and fight its own battle. She already had 2 blood transfusion and all of us were praying very hard as her platelet continued to drop since the first day she was admitted.

Fortunately her mother-in-law heard that papaya juice would help to reduce the fever and got some papaya leaves, pounded them and squeeze the juice out for her. The next day, her platelet count started to increase, her fever subside. We continued to feed her with papaya juice and she recovered after 3 days!!!

Amazing but it's true. It's believed one's body would be overheated when one is down with dengue and that also caused the patient to have fever papaya juice has cooling effect. Thus, it helps to reduce the level of heat in one's body, thus the fever will go away. I found that it's also good when one is having sore throat or suffering from heat.

Please spread the news about this as lately there are many dengue cases. It's great if such natural cure could help to ease the sufferings of dengue patients.

Furthermore it's so easily available.
Blend them and squeeze the juice! It's simple and miraculously effective!!

FW: Thought for the Day: Energy in the problems




Thought for the Day: Energy in the problems

Whatever holds you back also compels you to build the strength and determination to move forward. Though the effort is difficult, that is precisely why it can bring such a great sense of satisfaction.

The disappointments are painful, and yet they enable you to truly appreciate the positive possibilities. When your path is blocked, you have the opportunity to find a more promising path.

Instead of giving away your energy in a fight against the problems, choose to adopt a more effective strategy. Find the positive energy in each problem and use it to move ahead.

Take the energy that pushes against you, and redirect that energy to work in your favor. Seize the valuable opportunities that arise from every turn of events.

Whatever happens, there is something positive and useful that you can take from it. Know with certainty where you wish to go, and you'll find plenty of energy to get you there.







FW: Thought for the Day: A moment at a time



Thought for the Day: A moment at a time

Great value is created steadily and diligently, one moment at a time. Live with respect and appreciation for each small moment, and that value will be yours.

You can easily stay focused, you can easily persist, and you can easily stay positive for just one small moment. And when that beautiful, effective moment is over, you'll be ready and willing to do it all again.

Pour the fullness of your love and positive purpose into each little moment. By calmly and positively living a moment at a time, you'll bring your true greatness to life.







FW: Thought for the Day: Where confidence comes from



Thought for the Day: Where confidence comes from

Where your confidence comes from is not really that important. What matters is where your confidence can take you. Perhaps your confidence is based on your past experiences, or perhaps it is not.

Even though you have no logical reason to be, you can still be genuinely confident about what you intend to do. Confidence is an attitude you choose, not an evaluation of what you've already been through.

Confidence is not about what has already happened. Confidence is about moving forward and creating the best of what can be. Choose it and use it to follow your dreams.







FW: Thought for the Day: What you get is what you see

Thought for the Day: What you get is what you see

Is your life stuck because of some outside influence, or are you the biggest factor holding yourself back? What would happen if you took a few steps outside your comfort zone?

Everything that comes to you, first comes through your perceptions. The reality upon which you base your decisions and actions is the version of reality that you choose to perceive. You cannot change what has already happened. However, you can easily change the way you see it.

Your circumstances are what they are. And in those circumstances, whatever they may be, you can choose to find empowerment and positive possibilities.

What you get is what you see. Choose to see each day, each moment, each situation as an opportunity to move forward, and that's exactly what you'll get

A cute love story - Final Part - Harini's Story

And here comes the climax…………….


Harini's Story

I am Harini and I'm avinash's wife and I am proud to be so. According to me he is the best photographer in the world. He says that he got his success and awards because of me but it's not true. He has a great talent in photography. He just needed some backup and I am fortunate to provide him the necessary support. Avinash is a great personality and I am very lucky to be his girl.

I first met Avinash in a chat on yahoo messenger. My yahoo ID is rani17981. I saw his yahoo ID clickharrypotter and I found the ID interesting. Whenever I tried to chat with anyone I was always asked the question regarding ASL. And he was the first person to chat with me without asking the question "ASL Please?"  This made me to develop friendship with Avinash. I always called him Potter and I liked it that way. The friendship that started that day with a small chat has grown slowly and steadily and he became my best friend.

I realized that he has a great liking for photography. He needed some support or someone to encourage his hobby. He was in a dilemma whether to continue his hobby or not. I don't know why but I felt that he can become a successful photographer. So I encouraged him. I told him to continue his hobby. I tried to develop some confidence in him. We used to chat for hours daily. But we never saw each other. He never sent me his photograph or me to him. I took a promise from him that I would first see his photo only in a newspaper taking some award.

I used to tease him on his views on Love. He always used to give me big lectures on it. He used to say that he would find his girl one day. I liked his views and his ideas on Love. I always thought that he can become a perfect lover. Slowly I got emotionally attached to him. I asked him many times whether he found his girl or not. I tried to get a place in his heart. I always waited for a right moment to express my Love towards him.

One day he came up with the news that he has won a prize for his photograph in an exhibition conducted by Mumbai Press Club. I felt very happy to him. I know how much the award means to him. But that day he said something which made me feel that he loves me. He said that I am his lucky girl. I felt as if I am the luckiest person in the world. The next day I told him that I Love him. But I was wrong. After a couple of days I received a mail from him saying that he does not love me. He always looked at me as a friend. I felt very sad. I thought that I should never mail him or contact. But after few days I realized how wrong I am.

He said that Truth and honesty are the foundations of Love. But I was never honest to him. I always told lies. I told lies from the beginning of our chat. I mailed to Potter that I wanted to talk to him. I wanted to say the truth.  I told that 17981 in rani17981 meant a part of my SSN whereas it meant my Birthday - September 17th 1981. I told him that I live in USA whereas I live in Mumbai. I told him that I am Rani whereas I am Haritha, Haritha Mittal.

Coming to the other side of my story, I first met Avinash when I went to appear for a test to Hexaware Technologies Ltd. Later I met him near my house during my driving classes. I never thought that he is the same person with whom I chat daily. He told me that he was preparing for GATE. He was new to Mumbai and does not have any friends. We became good friends. I encouraged him to prepare for GATE. He never told me about Rani or me never to him about Potter.

I was in Calcutta to attend my relative's marriage when I proposed my love to Potter. But he said that he always looked me as a friend. I felt very sad. But when Avinash asked me the reason for it when I came back to Mumbai, I lied to him saying that my marriage has been fixed. I did not want Avinsah to know about it. Neither Avinash nor I knew at that time we both were dealing with each other. After a few days I got a call from Delhi to attend an interview. I made my preparations to go to Delhi. Avinash left to Bangalore as he got selected for Infosys. I did not attend the interview at Delhi as I got another good offer in Mumbai.

I have decided to tell Potter all the lies I have told him. I mailed him to come to chat the next day. But the next day was really a bad day. The train which I was supposed to travel met with an accident and my name cam in the paper declaring that I am no more. The newspaper got my name from the reservation charts. I was also shocked to see the mail from Potter. Only then I realized that my Potter is same as Avinsah. I did not believe it. It's the greatest surprise I ever had. But I immediately understood the pain Avinsahs was going through.

The next day Avinsash returned to Mumbai. I met him. He was surprised to see me. He wept like a baby seeing me and holding my hand. Then I told him about Rani.

"How do you know Rani?" he asked.

"Because... I am rani17981"


"Yes... Unbelievable... but true. As rani17981 I told you lies. I realized that you are Mr.Potter only after I saw the mail you have sent me yesterday" I said explaining him everything.

That's the most beautiful day of our life. We danced together. We laughed at each other for our foolishness. Tears of happiness flowed through our eyes. It was like entire happiness in the world has come to us to celebrate the joy with us. After a year we got married and settled in Bangalore. This is our story.

He calls me Harini, a combination of Haritha and Rani and I like it that way. This is our story. Ooops.. I am getting late for the press conference.

Meet you later. Bye, take care and don't forget to tell us if you have any Love story J

A cute love story - Part V - I Love you Mr.Potter

Love is the most fascinating, most wonderful and the strangest thing in the world. It gives a new meaning to your life. It turns your life into a new dimension. It makes your world focus on a single person. It enhances the soft corner in your heart. It makes you determined to do anything for the ones whom you Love whatever may be the cost. It makes you feel that you exist no longer for yourself but for the person whom you Love. It increases the responsibility in you. It makes you a complete person in every aspect.

People say that Love is blind. Yes... Love is blind because once you are in Love you no longer see the world with your eyes. You see the world through the eyes of the person you Love. You feel the joy, the pain, the happiness, the sorrow and every moment of the person you Love in your eyes. Your eyes no longer reflect your heart. They reflect the state of the person you Love. They speak the language of your loved ones. They carry the tears of them to see happiness in their eyes. 

Love is the strangest thing in the world. It makes you a Hero for your loved ones. It turns a coward to brave so that he can win the world for his Love. It turns the bravest to cowards making them too cautious, fearsome and always praying for the good of their loved ones.


I am in Love with her. True Love happens only to a privileged few. I am Lucky to be in love, to feel it and to appreciate each and every moment of it. I feel like I am in clouds. I feel that I am the luckiest person in the world. I feel like god. I feel like giving anything or everything for the sake of her.

I became more positive in my approach. I no longer feel sad for not getting a job or failing a test or interview. I no longer become angry at small things. I developed more and more patience. I started liking each and every moment of my life. Suddenly everything in the world looked beautiful. I see her face in the face of every happy person. I see her name everywhere. I felt that Haritha is the most beautiful name and she the most beautiful person in the world.

Every moment, every hour, every minute and every second I think of her. I want to be with her every moment. I want to take care of her. I go to jogging just because she wanted me to come there. Everyday I wake up at 4:00 AM and go to the joggers park and wait for her. I am the first person to be in the park everyday in the morning. I always do some or the other thing wrong during driving classes to extend them so that I can spend more time with her during the classes. I prepare for GATE exam just because she feels happy if I succeed in GATE. I always ask more and more questions to her during her evening walk just to hear her talking to me. I do awkward things just to make her laugh. I always do things wrong just to give her a chance to correct me.

One day Haritha asked me...
"You look different now a days..."
"Yes.. You have changed a lot. You are completely different from what I have seen you on the first day"
"Oh... I see"
"Yes..Many changes in you"
"May I know the changes that you see in me?"
"You look handsome now a days. Your short temper has been reduced. You are becoming more and more confident of yourself. You are developing more and more positive attitude and..." She said looking at me "...and many more changes. What happened to you?"
"Nothing...??? You are lying. There is something"
"Nope... absolutely nothing. In fact I still feel that I am the same old Avinash"
"Hmm... If you dont want to tell. Dont tell but I will find out one day the secret behind your changes"

I did not tell her that I love her. I did not have the courage. What if she does not accept it? What if it effects our friendship? What if she refused to talk to me after that? Many questions rose in my mind and made me helpless. I dont want to lose her because of my silliness.

Often the word "I Love You" is misunderstood by many. It does not mean that you want someone or you want them also to love you in return. It is just a means to let them know that you are there for them and you care for them. Love demands sacrifice. It only knows how to give but never to take. It's a gift of god. But unfortunately for some or other reason it is misinterpreted easily. So I did not want misunderstandings or misinterpretations crop up between us. I waited for a right time to express it.     


I never told Rani about Haritha. She would tease me if I told her that I am going out with a girl and I am in Love with her. She always waits for an opportunity to tease me in these matters. I thought that this is not the right time to tell this news to Rani.


But, when good times come, everything good happens in your life. The entry that I have sent to Mumbai Press won a consolation prize. That's my first recognition as a photographer by a reputed organization. I felt very happy.  I was on cloud nine. I need to tell Rani about the news. She is the one who encouraged me to continue my hobby.


clickharrypotter: I have two good news to tell you.

rani17981: Two good news...???

clickharrypotter: I appeared for entrance exam of Infosys and I did pretty well.

rani17981: Thats great.

clickharrypotter: Yes..They dont have any other hurdles. Just pass the test and you will be in Infosys.

rani17981: When are the results going to come?

clickharrypotter: In a week...

rani17981: What is the other Good News?

clickharrypotter: I was blessed with the first success in my hobby.

rani17981: Please stop the suspense and tell me what happened.

clickharrypotter: I got a consolation prize for the entry that I have sent to Mumbai Press Club.

rani17981: Thats amazing

clickharrypotter: Yes... I never expected it. Though it's a consolation prize, its very valuable to me.

rani17981: I know. Photography has always been more than a hobby to you. I wish that you win more and more prizes and reach greater heights in this field

clickharrypotter: Thanks a lot. When you come to India, I am going to give you a big party.

rani17981: Hey.. Thanks.

clickharrypotter: Dont mention. Today I got this success because of you.


Yes. It is just because of her. She is my best friend I can look to at any moment. She always consoled me whenever I was in depressed state. She helped me a lot in continuing my hobby. Without her I would have left the photography long back. I don't know what would have happened in my life without her.


rain17981: Because of me? What I did?

clickharrypotter: You always encouraged me to continue my hobby. Without your support I would have never gained this success. I would have left my hobby if there was no one to support me. It's you who supported me. It's simply because of you.

rani17981: Don't get too emotional...

clickharrypotter: Its not being emotional. I am saying truth. You are my lucky mascot. You are my Lucky girl. You are my best friend. You are simply great.

rani17981: Potter...

clickharrypotter: You are really my lucky girl. I know what you are thinking. You are thinking that I am talking too much. But you don't know how I feel. You don't know what photography means to me. I owe you so much. You are my best friend and you are everything to me.

rani17981: Potter, Do you know what you have said just now...

clickharrypotter:  Whatever I said, every single word came from my heart. Why? What happened? Did I say anything wrong? 

rani17981: You will not understand.


I did not understand why Rani became so emotional that day. I don't know why girls become emotional too easily. Haritha went to Calcutta to attend a function in her relative's house. So I could not share my joy with her. She would be back in a week. By that time the results of Infosys test will be declared and I will end up with a job in Infosys. She would be delighted to here this. I thought of telling about Haritha to Rani. She will be very happy to here this. She will tease me, she will make fun of me but I always liked that.


After two days I met Rani again in chatting.


rani17981: Today I want to say some good News to you.

clickharrypotter: I also wanted to tell you some good News.

rani17981: Then, Potter It's your turn first

clickharrypotter: No, Ladies first... It's your turn

rani17981: OK...I am thinking of how to say it

clickharrypotter: Why to think so much? Just say..

rani17981: OK... I was thinking of what you said in the last chat since two days. You said that I am your lucky girl.

clickharrypotter: Yes. You are always my lucky girl

rani17981: Thank you. Thanks for choosing me your lucky girl, the girl of your life. I LOVE YOU. I Love you Mr.Potter.

clickharrypotter: Rani...

rani17981: Yes, Mr.Potter. I am in Love with you. I am coming to India next week. We will meet. We are in Love and we are going to see each other for the first time. It's thrilling. I am excited. I cannot control this excitement. What do you say Potter?


My mind became blank at once. I felt as if my heart has stopped. I never expected this. I felt as if the whole world is collapsing on me. What am I going to do now?

A very serious warning while travelling to UAE & other Gulf countries

Dear Friends,

Yesterday only I  came to know of a case from a friend of mine which is very scary. One of his friends was traveling to UK via Dubai. Unfortunately he was carrying a packet of Khas Khas which is a commonly used spice in some Indian curries and sweets. Khas Khas is also known as poppy seed which can be sprouted to grow narcotics (afeem etc.).

This innocent person did not know that recently the laws in UAE and other Gulf countries have been revised and carrying Khas Khas is punishable with minimum 20 years of imprisonment or even worse with death penalty. Currently, the person is in a jail in Dubai for the last two weeks. His friends are frantically trying hard for his release but are finding that this has become a very very serious case. Lawyers are asking huge fees amounting to AED 100,000 even to appear in the court to plead for his innocence.

Please forward this email to all you know specially in India. They should know the seriousness of this matter and should never ever carry even minutest quantities of the following items when traveling to Gulf countries:

1. Khas Khas whether raw, roasted or cooked.
2. Paan
3. Beetle nut (supari and its products, e.g. Paan Parag etc.)

The penalties are very severe and it could destroy the life of an innocent person.

I appeal you to create the awareness by forwarding this email to all you know.

A cute love story - Part IV - Sep 17th!!!

Joggers Park


After Mumbai Darshan, Haritha and I became good friends. I never told Rani about Haritha. She would tease me if I told her that I am going out with a girl. She always waits for an opportunity to tease me in these matters. I never hide anything near Rani. She is my best pal from my college days. We used to chat once or twice a week.


One day she told me that she is coming to India.


clickharrypotter: That's good news. When are you coming?

rani17981: I did not plan yet. But I will let you know once I am ready with my plans.

clickharrypotter: That's great.

rani17981: So how is your hobby going on?

clickharrypotter: As I told you already, I have sent my entry to Mumbai Press Club and am waiting for the results.

rani17981: That's good. Do you remember the promise that you made to me?

clickharrypotter: Yes. I remember. But that is not in my hands. I am trying my best.

Rani always encouraged me to continue my hobby. She is the person who understood me completely and helped me in every sense


rani17981: All the best and did you find your girl?

clickharrypotter: Nope.

rani17981: So... Can I try for you?

clickharrypotter: Its not that easy to impress me.


I don't know why she always keeps me asking the same question again and again.


On the other side Haritha always used to encourage me to concentrate on my studies. I never told Haritha about my hobby. I always boasted at her that I was preparing for GATE and giving my best to it. She helped me a lot in increasing my aptilical skills. Haritha is a great personality. She is very spiritual and courageous. Though she came from a rich family, she never showed it. She always used to be simple. She does not want to depend on anyone. She takes her career seriously. She is great... simply great.


She gets up early in the morning at 5:00 AM and goes for jogging unlike me who like sleeping till 10:00 AM. Then she goes for yoga classes. After that, driving classes and then she would be busy with her preparations for CAT. Her aim is to get a seat in IIM. She is a great hard worker.


"Why don't you come to jogging early in the morning?" She asked me one day.

"Actually, I wake up a bit late" I said.

"Try to wake up early in the morning"

"Early in the morning... Me?? No way"

"Why? Tomorrow you are coming to jogging with me. That's it. See you tomorrow"


I did not understand what to do. I never woke up at 5:00 AM in my life except to watch Cricket matches in Australia. The matches in Australia start early in the morning.


Next day I woke up at 5:30 AM with great difficulty. My parents were shocked. As I reached the joggers park its 6:00 AM. Haritha already completed her jogging.


"You are late" She said.

"I am sorry. You know it's very difficult to get up early in the morning" I said yawning.

"It's difficult in the beginning. But once you get used to it, you will feel great"

"Hmmm... But I think I need sometime to get used to it"

"See how many people are coming early in the morning. You can also try..."

"I don't know whether I can do it or not"

"You will do it. You will do it for me. I am sorry I did not tell you..." She said waving her hand to one of her friends.

"What?" I said. I did not understand what she is talking about.

"Actually, I made a bet with my friend Shreya"

"Bet??? What bet?"

"She always comes with her boy friend to jogging and she challenged me that I don't have any friends and I always come alone. So, I thought that I can prove to her that I also have one boy friend"

"You should have told me before. I would have come at 4:00 AM"

"I don't want to trouble you about this. I just asked you casually"

"Its OK.. Where is your friend?"

"She has already left. I lost the bet. You came a bit late"

I felt vary sad.

"Don't worry. Its OK" She said trying not to disappoint me.


But I felt really bad. From that day I woke up at 5:00 AM early in the morning everyday. I thought that I should never disappoint her. I even started preparing for GATE seriously. Behind the success of every man's life there is a woman behind him. I think it's true. I completely changed myself from a lazy and careless person to a person with a goal in his life. She brought change in my life. I seriously started liking her and on sep 17th…..



September 17th


It's been Five months since I came to Mumbai. I could not make any friends in Mumbai except Haritha. It's been Four months since I met Haritha the first time in Mumbai. We became good friends. We used to meet daily in the morning at Joggers Park and in the evening. Now I could not imagine a day without spending time with Haritha. She is the only friend I can look to in this vast city of Mumbai. She is my best and the only friend in Mumbai.


I continued my job hunt sitting in the home sending my Resume to more and more companies. One day I got a call from Infosys. Thank god they don't have group discussion or interview in their recruitment process. There is only one entrance exam which includes some aptilical questions. I appeared for the test and I felt confident about the result. After the test they told me that they will let me know about the result in a day or two. I was very confident about the result. I thought that no one could stop me now. I did not tell this to Haritha. I wanted to give her a surprise after I got selected for Infosys.


One day in the morning Haritha called me and told me that she is planning for a movie that day. She asked me to come to Fame Adlabs theatre by 11:00 AM in the morning. Fame Adlabs is a multiplex theatre with all the amenities in it. I reached the theatre by 10:45 AM. She was already waiting for me. She was looking really gorgeous that day. She was wearing a new sari. That's the first time I saw her in a sari. She was looking great. I could not turn my eyes from her.


"You look simply great today" I said.

"Hey Thanks..."

"What is the matter?"

"Today is September 17th. It's my Birthday"

"Wow... Many many Happy Returns of the day" I said. "So you are giving me a treat"

"Yes.. Let's go. It's already 11:00"

"Why did not you tell me that its your Birthday? I would have planned your Birthday in a great way"

"Great way???"

"Yes... I would have planned your treat in Taj Hotel which is at Gate Way of India"

"OK.. Don't worry. We will plan that on your birthday and you can give your treat in Taj"

"He He.. Leave it. Taj is too far from here. This is also fine"

"Now... Just shut up and come"


I took her to a near by shop to buy her a Birthday gift. There were various gift items in the shop. I did not understand what to select. I asked her to choose anything among the articles present there.


"Why are you trying to impress me? No formalities. Come on let's go". But I did not listen.

I brought her a small key chain with a beautiful globe attached to it.

"It's really beautiful. Thanks a lot" She said smiling.


We went inside. There was a small on the spot dance competition going inside the Multiplex for couples. Three or four couples were trying their Luck.


"Come on..." Haritha said. "Let's try our Luck"

"Ha Ha Ha... You don't know something. I am very poor at dancing"

"See those people. All are students like you. See how they are dancing..."

"But I am not a student anymore" I said winking at her.

"You will again become a student once you clear the GATE exam" She said.

"Of course... Of Course" I said.

"Now... Hold my hand and just repeat what I do" She said grabbing my hand and dragging me on to the dance floor.


I took her hand in mine. She put one of her hands on my shoulder and we started dancing. That was a great experience. I looked into her eyes. Her eyes were bright. She was smiling. Her steps were tapping perfectly to the music on the floor and my heart beating perfectly to her tunes. Those were simply the greatest moments I cannot describe. I am a pathetic dancer. But she was dancing beautifully. We danced for ten minutes. We did not get selected because of my poor dancing.


After that we went to the movie. But I did not see the movie. I don't know what happened to me but I am no longer the same Avinash who came to Mumbai in search of a job. I came to Mumbai hunting for a job. But Mumbai gifted me with girl of my life. It took five months for me to recognize it. I am in Love. I wanted to stand on the top of a building in Mumbai and shout to the world...
