Loveu Letter

Dear Love,

Hope you are fine?. Probably, I shouldn’t be asking you this question today. It’s valentine’s day and the whole world is celebrating you. You are the one of the best things that came across my life, wish you stayed bit longer. I can’t blame you either, both villains EGO and religion played their part in temporarily flushing you out of my life. You know what, it’s been years, but I still miss those beautiful moments being with you. You are awesome and magical, aren’t u?. You pushed beyond my comfort zones and made me do crazy things. I enjoyed it all until you left me one fine day, alone and dry. It was hard and disastrous for me. Somehow I moved on, filled my life with things that would fill your absence. But, there is this small void which I couldn’t avoid. The wounds are healed, but the scar remains and reminds you. All I now wish is for someone who could bring you back to me. This time, I am gonna hold you tight and gentle. I have learnt how fragile you are, so will handle you with care. Hope you don’t keep me waiting too long.

Many are happy today because of you, please stay with them forever. Many more are still hoping for you, you are their last hope. Reach them soon and keep them happy too. I can imagine the world with no air and no water, but not without you. Be there for us always.

Love You Love.

Yours Lovingly

The one who became a salesman for a while

After completing work at my office, I headed straight to a well know books and gifts store to buy gifts for my very close friend’s wedding reception the very next day. After reaching there I spent some time looking at the books and gifts and querying the sales person before finalizing the gift. As I was informed that it would take some time to safe pack the gift as it’s a porcelain one, I simply went around the store. I saw a couple came to me with queries, they looked like college going boy and a girl. They completely misunderstood me as a salesperson, as I was still wearing my ID card around my neck and the color of the ID card rope was very similar to that of employees in that store. Initially was quite irritated with in, but decided to play along. My initial conversation and queries with the real sales person really helped, Following is the conversation I had with them.

Boy :  (pointing to a gift piece from a distance) How much that costs,
Me :  (Reaches the piece, Looks at the price tag on it) 415 Rs sir.
Girl :  (Pointing to another one) What it is made of.
Me :  Terracotta and some wood.

(Both discussed for some time going around, while I stayed patient)

Boy :  (Now points to a glass crystal kinda article)  Will it break.
Me :  (Wow what a wonderful question) definitely yes sir, You can try it at your own cost. You have to handle it with care.
Boy : (Smiling at me) Ok then we will take this one.
Me : (Pointing to the packing desk) Please take it there, they should help you.

(I left the place as soon as they moved, I saw the real sales person looking at me confused from the distance)

(I was standing in the billing counter, I saw the couple come and stand behind me, they got  even more confused to see me standing there)

Billing Staff : Cash or Credit Card ?
Me :  (hands over the card) Remove the price tag from the box, I wanted it gift wrapped.
Girl : (Rushes to me) You are ?
Me : Just like you people, came here to buy stuff.
Girl : (Points to my ID Card) I am really sorry I miss understood you. I am really sorry again.
Me : (Now the guy also joins and both repeating “Sorry” like a mantra)  No problem Its ok.
Me : (Pointing the guy) Don’t you know glass breaks?
Girl : (Laughs and beats that guy soft on his shoulder) Even I thought it was a stupid question.

(We three laughed, and I left them with a smile)

Their’s sorry even continued when they saw me again at the parking lot. Initially I got irritated when they mistook me as a salesperson, It’s my ego which made me think “I am a SOFTWARE ENGINEER and not a salesperson”. Calming down for a  second and killing my ego for some minutes gave me an unexpected experience. It just reminded me of a Quote “No job is too small”. Has anyone got similar experiences?

Moral of the story : Remove your ID card as soon as you exit from the office 😛 .

The One Who Is A Chocolate Boy

This one fellow who i know for so long is called a chocolate boy not because he is sweet and all but because of his love towards chocolate, show him a chocolate and u can see a big smile on his face and his eyes glittering out of joy.

I wad quiet anxious to know when it all started, So i asked the one who know him more than he knows himself, Yes his mom only and she narrated me the following funny incident :D.

When he is around 3 we want him to get admitted in school for L.K.G, So his dad took so much effort to get admission form for one of the best school in north Chennai (Its quiet competitive even to get admission form it seems). But he has to undergo a small interview to get the admission. The day came and we were seated out of the principal’s office and waiting for the interview. Next to us was a parents who were pointing to another kid coming out of principal’s room with chocolate to their kid and said “You will also get chocolate if you answer correctly”. Next was our turn and we went inside the principal room and sat silently. The principal is a father (Its a christian school) and he was very polite. After looking at our admission form he asked my son “Kid What is your name” and my son was keenly looking at the bag of chocolate on the table and replied “Give me chocolate then only i will say my name”. While the principal was smiling politely after hearing the unexpected answer but me and my husband were completely panicked only then i realized this fellow was keenly observing what happened outside. Again principal asked politely “How many chocolate u want” and my son showed his 10 fingers but ended up getting only two chocolates in each hand. I could see a great joy in his face but my husband’s face filled with panic and anger thinking all his effort would fail. Then he answered all the question asked by the principal with ease. Then the principal said that my son got the admission and he also mentioned that my son talk so good and frank in this young age without any fear unlike other kids who gendraly fumble and blessed him. We walked out of the room with a great relief and my son was busy munching the choclate which he got, Since then i see his love for chocolate never went down even today

As many of you might have guesed that awesome kid is me and the above thing was exactly what my mom narated to me and the school was Don Bosco Schoo, Broadway and i studied there till my 2nd std. Even today many used to make fun of me for my love for chocolate but who bothers, I love chocolate and i feel happy when i eat them 😀 . “Munch” is my most fav chocolate, some of my college friends named me “Munch Boy” cos they could see me munching it all the time. If you want some thing to be done just bribe me “Munch” 😀
