Okay so ye do maheeno pehle ki baat hai, but I kinda think that it is relevant at this point of time.
So it was December, and hum logon ne college mein ek proscenium perform kiya tha. At the end of the event, a girl comes up to me and says that she liked my act. Apparently she was there to support one of her classmates, who was a part of another performance. Uss din na, meri shakal ka haal kuchh aisa tha; white paint all over my face and hair, with a Glasgow smile. Now I’m not particularly Brad Pitt even on my best of days, so forget my chances while being in an awfully creepy look. And that was why jab thodi tareef mili, and ek cute ladki saamne se aake baat karne lagi, to bhai aapka paagal ho gaya tha. So I got her name, and searched for her on Facebook. Let me tell you something, we seriously need to ban generic names. It takes quite a while to find the correct person! Anyway, koshish karne walo ki haar nai hoti hai, and I sent her a request. She accepted in an hour. Mera dil garden garden.
Do teen din baat hui bhai ki usse, number wagerah exchange bhi hue, and kya bolu yaar, dil aa gaya ispe. For once koi saamne se message kar rahi thi!
Later that week, I ran into her while I was getting out of college. We spoke for some more time. Main apne trademark ghatiya jokes crack kar raha hoon, and this girl somehow finds me funny! I seriously cannot explain in words kya feeling aa rahi thi. Jaate jaate mereko wo bol chali, Harsh bhaiyya, mereko aapki HR ki textbook chahiye!
Saare sapne choor choor. Yahan main kuchh soch raha hoon, and wahan wo kuchh aur hi! Saala zindagi ki kahaani hi ban gayi hai ye. And that wasn’t even the worst part of it, okay? Ye HR kameena meri fir se le gaya. He screws me up during my exams, he screws my projects up, and idhar bhi! Matlab bhai tera bigaada kya hai maine? Mere akele se hi aisi dushmani kyon hai?
And usse bhi zyada, aap har kisi ko aise hi bhaiyya thodi na bana sakti ho yaar! Aapke ghar pe bhai baap nai hai kya? Did they not teach you ki paraaye ladke ko bhai banane se paap chadhta hai? Kabhi sochi hai uss abla nar pe kya beetti hogi aapke iss atyachar se? Nahi na! Duniya bhar ka har ek ladka Salman hai kya, jisko bhai bulana chahiye? I’m pretty sure that at this point of time, wo aadmi bhi bol raha hoga ki nai banna hai yaar mujhe sabka bhai! Ash bhai bana gayi, Katrina bhi. Bhot ho gaya. Kasam se.
That was one of those days which reinforced what one of friends has always been saying . Pyaar mohabbat sab dhokha hai! Padhle bhai, mauka hai.
