This is the true love story of a very lovely and graceful lady whom I have,for the first time, seen in this real world,later visualized in my own creative world and now dreaming about in my imaginary world.. Although I have a very vital role to play in this fascinating true love story,it however has very little to do with the main story..All in all, this amazing true love story revolves entirely around this most beautiful lady alone and I,as her beloved admirer,may at the most say “she’s the most beautiful and the most graceful lady I have ever come across in my life..”
With a mind conquering grace and a more captivating enigmatic smile,this amazing lovely lady is still there,vivid and active,in my memory today and shall remain to be there forever..AMEN
I very strongly feel that the people around this lovely world also know about this lovely graceful lady,who did everything in her life to express herself and waged a lonely battle against…and finally and finally and finally..
I was shocked and felt numb when I came to know “what it finally was”,when a man from America met me suddenly in a cinema theater in Hyderabad and told me everything about this lovely graceful lady,whom I have last seen or heard about twenty seven years ago but whom I shall keep adoring,for just what she is,all through my life until God himself decides to fall in love with me… ..
But whatever “that finally is or was..”
Am Still Waiting For This Lovely Lady
Still after twenty seven years..Still with my eyes wide open and.. Still with a bouquet in My hands and..Still with the same smile and…Still with my heart almost going breathless with every passing day…
AM STILL WAITING FOR THIS LADY..
Waiting to convey her that..That..That..That..That
Osmania University in Hyderbad,India,is a picturesque location spread over 1600 acres(6kms) of very vast green lands..With beautifully laid out black top roads and with green Black Berry trees on both their sides,Osmania University is one of the oldest modern universities in India and is a must watch not only for every student but also for every lover of Nature..
With the exception of an occasional city bus here and there,even today,one will not find much of a traffic moving on the lovely roads of this more lovely Osmania University.
My friend,if this is the scenario today,you can imagine how beautiful this university was twenty seven years ago…
It was just spectacular..
Just the more serene and just the more peaceful than what it’s today..And in this most beautiful university lies a very simple looking city bus stop located under a huge Black Berry tree..Since this bus stop lies just in front of the OU ladies hostel,it’s more popularly known as the ladies hostel bus stop today..Though no one knows when this bus stop was actually erected here,it’s still there today but in a slightly dilapidated condition…
Twenty seven years ago..
On a quite day..
It was in this lonely bus stop that I have,for the first time,seen the most beautiful and the most graceful lady of my life…
This whole story is about this graceful lady and this graceful lady alone…
Please go through to know how this true love story has actually begun..
I was a student of graduation those days and used to board a local bus to my Nizam college,everyday,in this ladies hostel bus stop..My college is a hundred and twenty eight year old college and it was and it still is one of the most popular and highly celebrated Indian colleges today..
Though not relevant here,it’s still important to mention that it was this amazing college that produced some rare Indian gems like Sarojini Nayudu (Nightingale Of India) M.L.Jaisimha (Great Indian test Cricketer) Shyam Benegal (Renowned film director) Asif Iqbal (Famous Cricketer and former captain of the Pakistan Cricket team) Rakesh Sarma (First Indian astronaut to land on Moon) Mohd.Azharuddin (Renowned Cricketer and former captain of the Indian Cricket team) and many more luminaries of current day India..
As a student of Nizam College,life in those days,for me,was as naughty as it ought to be and as exciting as it’s always been for every student of this prestigious college..
I was always on a song those days with so much to do in so little a time..
During one such happy days..
It was a lazy Sunny morning in the month of August..
It was around 9 a m and I,as usual,was very late to my college that day..
Normally at that time of the day only me and my friend used to hang around there in that bus stop with literally no one else around…Sitting in the bus stop and waiting for the bus,singing old Hindi songs loudly,was our daily routine there..
And on that day too…
Both me and my friend were waiting for our bus..
In a chorus,both of us were very loudly singing a very popular old Hindi song “mere sapnoki rani kab aayegi tu..”..We know,at least I know,pretty well that our singing was very loud and unbearable but I was dead sure that there’s no one around,to hear and judge our singing..So no problem..As die hard fans of Hindi film music,both me and my friend were enjoying every bit of the song and every bit of our,whatever,the style of singing..
Though all the listeners of my singing often say that am a bearable singer, however,no one says the same thing about my friend who,unfortunately is blessed with an unbearable,unmentionable,unimaginable and unpardonable singing voice..
But I still used to bear with my friend and his mood shattering voice.. Wanna know why..??..Coz,those days,he’s my sweet cinema ticket bearer,food bill bearer,tea bill bearer and finally my Beer bill bearer too.. Period..
While still singing,I very casually turned my head and looked into the direction of the bus we were waiting for.. My singing abruptly stopped as I didn’t find the bus coming but found a very beautiful young lady coming slowly towards the bus stop..She was wearing a Red color salwar kameez (a traditional Indian attire) and even from a reasonably good distance, gave me an impression that “she’s an extremely gorgeous lady..”.. As I was curiously watching her coming,she slowly walked towards the bus stop and settled comfortably there in a vacant cement sofa..
At that time,I was casually sitting on the iron bar that’s there on the front side of the bus stop and my friend was standing diagonally opposite to me..To say the least,both of us were stunned by her beauty and were left dumb for a long time..
After a few more minutes of some exhilarating moments..
My bus came..
I looked at my friend..He understood..And we let the bus go..Another came and we did the same..
I was curious to know which bus will she be boarding and which college will she be going to..I tried to look at her but she was busy waiting for the bus..
Me,my friend and Ms. Gorgeous..Only three of us were there in the bus stop at that moment..There was a deafening silence all around..I have stopped breathing long time ago as I was eagerly waiting and waiting and just waiting to know which bus,damned,she’s going to board..
After a few more minutes of breathless waiting,her bus came and stopped slowly,right in front of us in the bus stop..
She very elegantly got up from the cement sofa she was thus far decorating and walked slowly towards the front door of the bus and,as everyone in the bus were curiously watching her,she very quietly boarded the bus..The lucky bus..
Looking at her boarding the bus,we just remained stagnant in the bus stop for a few blank moments…Suddenly I regained my senses and tried to move and thought I have already moved and was almost moving towards the back door of the bus to get quickly into it…Before me and my friend could realize what the hell was happening,the lucky bus carrying the lovely young lady left us and left the bus stop immediately ..
Ohhhhhhhhhhh..Damned..A big FFFFFFFFFFFFF..
I was shocked and mouth fully cursed my friend for not advising me to catch that bus immediately..What followed later from me was a steamy flow of words,am sure,you will never find in any dictionary..
Hehhhhh..I cursed myself..Kicked the edge of the bus stop and did much more things with frustration,but none of those acts of my dissent could really pacify me a bit..
After a few more moments of fretting,fuming and severe self condemnation,I have finally realized that there’s no point in breaking my head and no point in cursing my poor friend too..However,at the same time,several uneasy questions crowded my mind ..”Who’s she ..What is she studying..???? Which college.. ?? Did she come here only today..?? Or is she going to come everyday..??????..And if she is a regular,how come I have missed her earlier..Will she come again tomorrow..???????..”
Damned-who will answer these questions..???
“God..pleaseee..please appear before me for a minute and answer these very tough questions..I very badly need your help..O my dear nice God,please understand my pain..”
I was very desperate…Not because I have not seen more gorgeous girls before that,but because no one shook me so r..o..m..a..n..t..i..c..a..l..l..y..
What to do..???? May be that’s love at first sight..
(At a matured age,I may laugh at at this silly statement today but I know I was right at that tender age )
After that I was in no mood to go to the college that day…I was full of irritation and I know pretty well that I should do something immediately to come out of that irritable state..I first checked my friend’s pocket ..Found thirty rupees.. Later,checked mine… Found twenty..
Not baaaadddd..We can still afford a movie..
