The topic feels quite interesting na...?
Yes, the word "childhood" always catchs extra attention to everybody.
Those were the best days of our life. I love to be one's child always...
A small exciting story again... Now about our childhood.
Lets go back to 1990's...
You all know, Mysore is called the "Pensioner's paradise". Calm place, vehicle free roads, resembles the culture of whole state. People are very much cooperative to each other. Totally a very comfortable place to live in.
I was put up in vontikoppal (An area in Mysore). It can be called as an area of schools. Lot of schools near by, crowded with school children. Park to play, temple to worship, ground to roam around in PT period...!!! School was very near to the home. As i remember, i was 3feet height :) Short and smart haircut..., swalpa decent & swalpa tarle kind of boy.
Well, I coundn't keep up as i told you. I hardly find time to sit & blog in this schedule. Anyway... Am back......................
I belong to 1980's category...
And started to see the world from 1990's in my own perspective.
It was small world.
Me..., my family,
my school, homeworks, outdoor games, friends;
Smiles, Loud laughs, little anger :-)
I didn't know the difference between happy & sad, right & wrong, good & bad.
But i was happy, doing right & feeling good :-)
Each and every incidents in human life will have its own expectations and curiosity. We all love to fulfill our needs and wants. Sometimes all needs becomes wants. However, the game of life goes on...
In this game, "A new Birth" will be a curious, exciting and auspicious happening.
A beautiful rich girl fell in love with him. They had big constraints for their marriage from their family. Finally walked out from home and started leading a lovely life in their own world.
Nikhilworks for a private organization. A common and innocent fellow, with lot of unfulfilled dreams. He was satisfied with the rented house and a 2wheeler. Beautiful life with an understanding wife.
The couple was very much exited to get their 1st child. They were bit scared too...
He was expecting a baby girl. Apoorva had 8 names in her mind. He brought a very small chair for their future baby. She started thinking about the names of Nursery schools in their locality. A tree of dreams started to grow in their mind...!
Finally the day came. It was 12:25pm. She was in Operation Theatre(OT). Their well-wishers were curious. Unfortunately, he was made to engage in a meeting in his office since morning. His mobile rang... (It was 1.00pm. The meeting dispersed.) He thought its from hospital. That was his friend Suraj. He took a deep breathe...!
Suraj: One good news...
"Male or Female? Ya i'll be their in few minutes. How is Apoorva? What did did doctor say?", said Nikhil with excitement and tension.
"What are you talking about?, I am talking about my marriage. Oh! your wife is in hospital.......???" Suraj continued.
Interrupting "ok... congrats suraj, and ya actually... hospital..... office, meeting......." Nikhil was in tension.
"Hey Nikhil, are you alright?, what's the matter?"
"ya, am alright, am sorry am in tension, my wife is gonna deliver a baby today........"
During their conversion, Roopa (a friend of Apoorva from hospital) called Nikhil.
"Number busy" Roopa said to herself.
It was 1:11pm, when their conversation stopped.
Nikhil called back to Roopa. "The number you are trying to reach is currently busy.........."
He was on his bike at 1:13pm.
A traffic signal. He jumped the signal. Next moment he was with a COP. Roopa calling.... "am on the way... 2min......"
"pay Rs.100 for signal jump..." said the COP.
"Sir, am in a hurry....." he checks his pocket "shut, my wallet is in office" "Either pay the fine, or collect your bike from police station" "Sir, my wife is in hospital.... please let me go... if i...." The constable arrests his bike.
"Auto ..." Roopa calling...
"Hello.... am am in auto......." No answer from Roopa. "Hello... Hello..." Battery Empty. "Oh... shit !" "Driver please hurry up"
He was in the hospital at 2:10pm.
>>> 70% of his clothes were wet. 1st button of his shirt was open. He was tired. He recalled Apoorva is in ward number 304 in 3rd floor. Hurried towards the lift. Board read "Out of order"
It was 2:14pm. Room 304 was locked. Nurse "The patient is in OT" Nikhil hurried to OT in 1st floor. Nobody was in OT waiting hall... He went into the OT. The in-charge send him back and his questions about Apoorva went unanswered. oh! my god.......!!!
He walked towards the corner of the wall, leaned on to it, tried to relax himself, but couldn't.
A beautiful girl approached him. He stood straight & paid attention. She had attractive eyes, sharp nose. long hairs... She smiled at him. He made an attempt to reply through a smile.
"Who are you to Apoorva?" the girl asked casually. He was puzzled "I... I am her husband... and......" "Okay, you can see her in Special ward no. 602 in floor 6" said she. He hurried towards upstairs. "You can make use of this official lift" she invited him. She moved towards the OT. He went into the official lift, the door was about to close. He saw stethoscope in her left hand. She is a doctor.
It was 2:18pm when he reached Ward 602. He was shivering. He hesitated to knock the door, walked towards the opposite wall, leaned on it, and relaxed.
"My baby...! My wife..." His inner mind shouted.
He walked towards the door. When he was about to open, the door opened by itself. Nikhil took a step back. It was Roopa at the door. "Hey... where were you? I called you so many times. Apoorva is awaiting to see you. come on..." Roopa said politely. He stepped into the ward. "1st talk to Apoorva" Roopa whispered at Nikhil's ears. Apoorva facing other side, playing with the newly born baby.
The baby was in an astonished state, blinking its eyes. Nikhil's eyes filled with tears of happiness. He forgot all the pain he took to reach the hospital. He smiled at the baby. There was no limit to his happiness. His mind was dancing.
He stepped towards Apoorva, touched her. Turning to him "Nikhil, nikhil where were you?, did you saw the baby?" He smiled at her. "See how she is smiling at you....." said Apoorva. Nikhil "Baby girl?" asked her. Apoorva "Yup,......." started to laugh. Both laughed continuously for 2min looking at each other.
He moved towards the baby. "She is completely like me" Apoorva pretended. "Is it...! no, i think she is like Roopa" Nikhil teased Apoorva. Roopa expressed a naughty smile. With jealous "Will you shut up now" Apoorva looked angrily at Nikhil.
"Ha ha ha.....Lol.. I was just kidding you dear. She is completely like you, Are you happy now?" Nikhil convinced Apoorva.
Blue started turning to reddish-orange. Birds were flying back to their nest. Cool weather. Clouds started to draw beautiful pictures. Dried leaves in the tree were decorating the streets. The music of vehicle horns. Uncountable two wheelers & four wheelers contributed with the Buses for the traffic. People were busy in catching the buses to go back to their home. Hi-time to hang-out in the city.
I was walking with my friend. Both with casual dress. i was hungry. Within no time we got into 'Adigas'. Idly-Sambar with Vada made a good combination for the evening. Evening at Malleshwaram will satisfy most of the youth in the city. Especially boys! We walked out of Adigas, and proceeded towards 15th cross.......
Suddenly there was a cool breeze. Loose hairs were dancing on her face. I was curious to see her face. Finally she helped herself to free her face from hairs..... An Angel...!!!
I like girls with traditional dress. She was in black salwar kameez. She was about 160-165cms height, slim & beautiful. Long nose, loose hairs.
I almost slowed down my legs. There was around 50 feet gap between me & that girl. I wasn't able to get my eyes off her... I kept waiting for her response.
I don't know when she observed me, I saw her smiling lips, and i my eyes filled with shy. Next moment, she slowly started to look at me. I got excited and started laughing. I stood where i was. She took a left turn in Sampige road...
