Lovely drop in Proverbial Ocean -I

Prologue: This is my first attempt to pen a short story. I am ardent fan of writer Sujatha and Crazy Mohan dramas. The name of my Hero is Vasanth (legendary Vasanth from Ganesh-Vasanth stories) and heroine name gonna be Janaki, Janu (ofocurse lead character in crazy Mohan's drama). Life looks simple and enjoyable in both their writings.

Chapter 1- Ten Days Before

Vasanth – Our hero. He's a lover boy. Very soft spoken and good natured. Has absolutely nothing to worry about. For him, life is simple. He will run 1000 miles away from arguments and debates. USP, ofocurse his smile. Believes that he is born to lead a majestic life.
Janu – Our heroine. Rettai val- double naughty girl of this generation. Argue with her, you know who gonna run. For her, life is dream. She will run 1000 miles towards arguments and debates. Many times argues just for the heck of it. Believes she is born to make everyone around her happy.
What is in store for them, working in the same town like Bangalore away from home…continue reading this story

Vasanth was looking tensed and was hurrying at office. He has a train to catch in another 2hrs and he's still at office. Finally he manages to escape from there and reaches home in his tiger (bike), packs his stuff and reaches the station. A nice girl comes and smiles and him and says our ticket is not yet confirmed. Now who is this? Janu. "WOW" what interesting news to hear at the end of the day after all the traffic jams and without coffee for the past 4hrs! And Vasanth was not even sure if she was joking or serious. So he goes checks his ticket status in reservation chart- waiting list. "Come on- how can they can do this to me?" His hometown is such a small town, didn't deserve a fully booked train is his theory. What to do? "So are we traveling tonight?"- Janu. "Yeah, I am supposed to travel tonight, but after I asked you to book tickets for us, I should have got clue that we gonna reach home only if we walk"- Vasanth. Ohh yeah, I forgot to say you something important: Vasanth and Janu are friends for long time ;) They hail from same town.

Finally, they make up their mind to travel by bus and realized both are not carrying money with them. What a co-incidence both to be in trouble. In the Bangalore traffic, they had to run from one corner to the other to find a working ATM which also has cash and come back to the bus stop. By then, lucky those… all the comfortable busses got filled up. Someone was generous enough to offer them a ticket in a "deluxe" bus. That bus is too good to be comfortable. It has seats with straight back - some yoga master should have spent hours in its ergonomic design- how to make people sit straight and lose their sleep. You and I would have cribbed to travel for 15 hours in that "deluxe" bus (!). But did our fellows complain, No. never. They don't even have time to think about it - shouting, laughing, and arguing about everything under the sun in this world. Vasanth always had crush on her, never had time and mood to tell her that. Now you know what gonna come if he got enough time for talk with her. Vasanth was waiting that the bus starts and he can get to at least give her hints on this. The bus starts and our girl is more interested in the movie played in the bus than the chat. So our hero just decides and starts enjoying that with her.

"Hey Janu, I love you. Wish we lead our life together. Think and tell me later". Simple, isn't it? Yeah Vasanth can't pack much more in his simple sms proposal in his simple phone in early morning. After he sent the sms, tick, tick, tick.....clock took time to even strike one second. You should love a girl to understand how slow time will pass in such decisive moments. Now over to Janu, what is she doing? She was happily sleeping in bus. How on the world will she know that Vasanth sent her such sms? Time went on; vansath woke up after hot morning sun kissed him good morning. Janu is already on her phone talking to some one chatting about something. "God, has she seen my message?" she was blank. She just continued speaking the same way to him. Now Vasanth was really worried if the message reached her or not. They boarded off the bus after reaching their hometown and they are on their way to their respective home. A day passed off. Vasanth slept off for the whole day, he didn't even have time to think about what gonna be the reaction from her. Two hot matches on same day: England takes on Portugal, Brazil fights with France in quarterfinal rounds in FIFA world cup finals 2006. In the first match, Rooney was sent out with red cards, Vasanth is shouting here as if referee gonna hear him. You can be sure how he would have felt bad when England finally lost the match in penalty shootout. Next day morning, he woke up to hear Brazil too lost their match against France. Gosh, what a bad day it gonna be?!

In that sullen mood on Sunday morning, he was driving his car. Beep, Beep. What's that? Another sms. Yeah. "Hi, I want you to know that I too love you. But before anything we need to talk", now this message came from Janu. Hurray. Hurray. Hurray. You guessed right: She too had the crush on him for long time. If God had run something similar to orkut, he would have told about each other's crush to other, sometimes orkut is better than god ;)
