I was still waiting there. She came out of atm and was bit annoyed watching me still waiting there. You are still standing here. Just leave, don t make me angry. These gifts are for you. I was really keeping my fingers crossed. I was not sure whether she would accept them. Thanks, but I can t take them.
I knew this. Please take them, please. No, I can t take them. I will take these chocolates but not this big wrapped thing. Riya it s just for you. So what, throw it away? My heart cried. It was broken badly. It was shattered. I was helpless. I needed her. I needed her even more badly. My heart needed her much more badly. She went away. I was thinking should I be happy that I saw her or should I be crying that it was a bad surprise for her or should I think I wasted rupees.
It was not a small amount. I would have got four bottles of beer for it. Why God. Why me. But was it really the end of life? Nothing is permanent. Maybe I thought my love story would take a new turn and give a happy ending. Or will it be viceversa. My life was at a standstill. Who knows how Riya will be back? I gave a thought But why did I let her go I always dreamt of falling in love and when I was in love, everything felt like a dream.
It was a dream world with no limits. I got a girl who deserved better than I did. Still she was with me. I was her life. What happened then? Why did I do this. The dream ended in a way I never wanted it to. Nevertheless, the dreams hurt, as it was not real. Therefore, does falling in love hurt after all it is a fall. I realised why actually people called it falling in love. I got my answers when I was crushed from inside and left hurt, bleeding all alone from inside.
I received a sms when I was just about to study for my fourth paper of 4 th semester.. The result was that book was closed again and I started to think who had told Riya that I drink or smoke too much. However, I could not guess who had done it. Finally the exam day came. I had studied almost three chapters that carried a weightage of 40 marks.
I knew I was going to screw this paper badly. But fortune favours the brave. I was sure of getting a golden figure of Now it was time to have a blast on the big new years night. Leaving all negative vibrations behind. We friends enjoyed the night as if it was the last day of our life. Food, chicken, beer, cigarettes everything was savoured. I was driving my bike back home at around 3am.
I stopped on the highway to smoke. I was just resting on my bike and was not really in my senses. A stranger tapped me from behind. I turned around. He was well built in his mid 40s maybe. White shirt, black trousers Woodland shoes He was looking into my eyes deeply. Even he was drunk. I felt it,looking into his eyes.
Finally, he broke the silence. What is your problem son? I was confused and said nothing. Are you in love? How did he know that I was in love I never met him. I had never seen him earlier. Tell me son, I can see you are not happy.
I was a bit shocked. If he is dad s friend then I was going to get flushed out of my house. I am deeply in love. I answered him Then what s the problem?
She does not love you or what? Or you never told her? Why are you. Now this was too much. I really could not find an answer to all these questions.
Who was this man? Was I looking like devdas? Nothing uncle. She loves me too. However, she cannot come back to me and I am not able to bear this pain anymore. You have to. They are the one who care for you. They are the ones who live for you. They are the one who work hard for your future. They are the one who will have many expectations from you.
They are the one who gave you your life. Tears rolled down my eyes. I knew whatever he said was true. I realised whatever I heard just now could not be ignored. I am 48 years old, A Bengali, we are born romantic.
Does he mean a born devdas? Not again I thought. Two devdas standing in middle of the road at 3am discussing about Paro. Thank god late night Chandramukhis were not there.
I loved a girl, maybe times more than you do. But today I cannot go back to her even if she calls me. I have my family. I cannot leave them. My son. My wife. I just can t leave them alone. True I said. Look my son, love is never wrong, but a girl can be wrong.
Remember these words. What did he say just now? Did I ever hear It.? Love is never wrong but a girl can be. These words went straight into my heart Just carry on with your life. You still have a long life ahead of you. I got serious. Was he a human or an angel from heaven to show me the right way?
Who was he? I did not know him, never saw him. Why was he showing me life, when I never believed in god? Except for my love Riya, who trusted Lord Ganesha a lot. But, I never did. Then why me? If I were in your shoes, I would have dated some model. You look really charming. So smart. Why are you ruining your life? Move ahead my son, move ahead. This is my card. I will be happy, if you call me tomorrow.
He left. I was still standing there. Looking at him going away from me. Bringing my life closer to me. A lot closer than I would have expected. I laid on my bike. Closed my eyes just to get over what had. Was the girl wrong or am I wrong? Riya can t be wrong. She is too sweet to be wrong. She did everything for me. I never did anything for her. I wished I had done something for her. I just gave her pain. How can such a sweetheart be wrong? I never believed in it.
Never will. I was wrong. I reached home to relive those moments. That night and the next day, I could not sleep. I just wanted to relive whatever I had gone through. From the very beginning. I sat on my sofa, closed my eyes, and went back to the days after my hsc exam. Struggling to get admission somewhere. We just want to see what is inside it. Is the atmosphere nice? Is the service good? It is like getting obsessed with it. Moreover, once you are obsessed it is difficult to get it out of your mind.
However, after seeing, the same girl s skirt or maybe inside the skirt for 4 years you get bored. You just want to get out of it. I also read somewhere few funny things about engineering A group of managers were given the assignment to measure the height of a flagpole. They attacked the.

Every time he Aditya sees her, he thinks of her dress, how transparent it is, like that And the author was portraying romance unnecessarily.
Except bad,worse I don't have any other better words. Seriously waste! What to write a review about this book?? I don't recommend it to anyone who has read "I too had a love story". And it cannot be compared with "I too had a love story" I can confirm that every novel that is labelled as 'romance' or 'India's best seller' is a utter crap. This is no exception. I don't know why but Indian books made me feel insecure and scarred. Not because of the writing or themes but because of the immature characters in the books.
I feel them so shallow. They do all the stupid things and they have a strong conviction that they are doing it right. But the irony is most of people I know in real life are 97 I wonder what motivates Indian writers. But the irony is most of people I know in real life are like that. They do behave and act like the characters in 'Best sellers of India'.
It is the society I live in. I may relate to them. I may empathize with them but once I stop reading for a minute I feel that I am reading some crap.
Needlessly say, this is crap. But I can understand that most of the Indian youth may relate to it. The book starts with questions like Love or Lust? But the way Author describes the Love, I feel , is lust. I know it's not possible to define Love but at least author should try to say his version of Love. Beyond beauty, beyond calls, SMSes, silly fights, kisses and black spots. And the first ragging kiss, so filmy. So so filmy.
I understand it is very difficult to have a sense but at least be honest in your writing. The best things I did with this is I didn't buy this well-bounded garbage and I didn't read it in detail. It helped me to practice my 'speed-reading' habit.
I read it in around like hours. I am happy that I didn't let the crap to took a lot of my time. Mar 01, Sandeep Pawar rated it did not like it. I was fooled. When I purchased it, it was in bestseller list. What's wrong with people or something wrong with me? Language is gross. Love story is cliche and utterly typical. Songs in hindi in between are enough to irritate you and stop reading. View all 7 comments. Jan 06, Sundeep Supertramp rated it did not like it.
