Love needs commitment, else it’s better to let it die inside. Your parents can feel or regret for you for the reason of giving birth to you. Why is that the other soul have to cry for you? You don’t even have blood relation with them. Feeling bad about Madhi and Kalai she was arranging flowers in the vase that beautifies the entrance of U-Smile.
Then came a good morning wishes from a glad young charm of 60 years old who is a regular visitor of the angel (not U-smile 😉 ).”Hi dude! wassup!long time..no see..where have you been?”
Even more enthusiastic voice replied,”Yah babe am good. How are you? I was at my daughter’s house that’s why..”
“Oh cool..Had a great time?”
In the midst of their conversation the doorbell clinked. There entered two girls as slow and silent as a snail. It was well seen that it has been a long time that smile has forgot to visit their faces. The angel went there excusing the young champ to get the order from the girls.
“Anything can be handled with a smile” is the saying that the angel have in her heart always.So she reached their table with a cheerful smile “Hi friends! May I take your order please..”
They both looked at each other and one of the girl gave the order as “2 Cold coffee”
“Anything more? Cookies?”
The ordered girl looked the other girl. But she gave a negative nod. “No thanks.”
“Okay! will be here in 5 mins” saying so the angel left the place.
After delivering the order, the angel was focused on the friends.”
“Jeni, say now…” said the girl who gave the order. She touched the other girl’s hand. The next moment Jeni started crying. Even before the friend speak for consoling her, the angel went there for consoling her.”Excuse me..thank you..but anyway I’ll manage” said the crying little girl.
“No problem darling! Whatever the problem is, it will be solved. Don’t worry. Everything has a reason.”.When she said this, a flash of Kalai and Madhi came in her mind.
Whoever it can be, a caring hug and comforting words are the best medicine for a hurted heart though it’s temporary. And that’s what she needed now. And that’s what the angel gave her.
“Speak it openly. Whatever it is, only by speaking you can find a solution for it.”
Finally she started narrating her problem to the angel.
“My name’s Jeni. I’m working in a corporate. It’s been a year I’m working there. I have come across many men who has proposed me by all means. But I have never felt this way with anyone. He is different.”
“Baby..that’s what love is..you would not have got the same feel with anyother..anyways..continue..so you like him..”
“Yah I like him..I don’t know how to put it in sense. I like him a lot and that’s why I want to stay away from him.”
“Sorry I don’t understand”
“Mmmm…neither I. I have been brought up with a thought that only parents think good for us. Not even we do it for ourselves. So
I have not even given a thought about love”
That’s an obsolete idea of a girl, the angel thought. “Okay so what’s the problem now?”
“The thing is, I don’t know how I’ll handle these emotions.”
“It’s quite easy. Try to convince your parents.”
“No I won’t. I don’t want to hurt them.”
“cummon..there’s nothing wrong in letting them know about my love”
“Okay so how long you guys are loving?”
“He is loving me since december (two months) and he proposed me last before week.I…”
“Arey…wait wait wait..so you both are not committed? Just two weeks before he has proposed you!!!”
“Yah but I feel that he is genuine in his love. From the way proposed, from the way he talked, from the way he cared..”
“Yes while talking to him I coughed once or twice, so he brought me medicines and health supplements. He also introduced me to his entire family.See in this current which guy will introduce his girl untill and unless he is sure about it? Everything makes me feel that he truly loves me.”
“So on the other side? and did you say to him that you too have feelings for him??”
“No yaar..how will I? I don’t want to cheat him saying I love him and marry someone whom my parents are showing”
“Logically you are good Jeni. But these are related to heart. You have to take decision with your heart..with your soul…”
“It would be nice to advice but not in practical” she again started her tears to see the world.
“This is what she is saying whenever I advice” added the other girl.
“Okay Jeni. Cool down. Let us think and find a solution..mmm…how about asking his parents to talk to your parents?”
“No my parents won’t accept him.”
“Because he is not our religion”
“Ohhh ohhh here comes the real Indian mind. Anyway try to tell them about your likings for him.Worth giving a try”
She remained silent. The angel can understand her situation. She couldn’t let her heart for her parents and also not her parents for her heart.
“Darling.. I just tell you this. Its better to take chances rather than regretting later. Imagine if your parents come to know about your love in future and they say,”You could have told us about it ma…” how will you feel??? Won’t it be worst situation in your life?? That’s why am saying. Please never hesitate to take chances. Try it. If yes, you will get the happiest life. If not, atleast you will get a satisfaction that your parents know completely about you.”
After 2 minutes silence, she gave a smile. A brief smile. “Okay daring. I’m kind of okay now. I decided. I’ll surely talk with my parents. Whatever life gives me I’ll take it with full heart.”
They both got up and paid for the coffee and left the place.
The angel closed her eyes….She could forsee the situation in her family. She could understand 2 things clearly from what she
1. He will wait for her whatever happens and how long it may take.
2. Her parents won’t accept she being married to her love.
But from her side, she told God,”Please. Do something to make her smile every moment.”
Writing so, she closed her diary…
