Girl and the glass house

People say "love is blind", isn't that a silly expression?.Love is a feeling it cannot be blind. But it is definitely capable of making people blind.

Keerthi is a beautiful girl who used to make people around her laugh. Now she is 47 years old and has wrinkles below her eyes. She is an accomplished woman working as a designer in a leading fashion jewelry firm. With a gleam in her eyes every day she visits the glass building without fail, dressing the best she can. Not many people know the reason behind the moist eyes which seem to have been waiting since eternity.

Keerthi had a huge fan following and silently she used to enjoy all the admiration she used to garner. But among her many admirers Ratan used to have a special place. Not because Ratan was handsome, he was good with words. The moment Ratan speaks ,Keerthi used to fall head over heels for him and listen intently gaping her mouth wide open.

Ratan's favorite spot in bangalore was the glass building. It is a  huge structure, There was nothing fabulous about the building but what Ratan liked the most was it had glass every where. Keerthi, like any other girl used to set her make-up right in front of every mirror in the building. Every time Ratan used to meet keerthi , without even thinking twice they used to decide on this spot. Ratan felt a devilish joy of teasing Keerthi every time she touches her bindi telling her, "You are looking just fine!". Keerthi used to brush him away saying "This is our birth right". Secretly both used to enjoy this little quibbling

On the last day of the college before Ratan and keerthi were leaving to their homes, Ratan casually remarked "I think you will miss my teasing" . Keerthi spontaneously replied funnily "I'm so glad you won't be around ,I can look into the mirrors all day long!". Some times fate can be really cruel that people say things without realizing that it could be the last thing they say to the other person.

Laksha Mandinaina savalu chese aatagaadi pogarantha

As a kid, I used to just watch Sachin Tendulkar's batting, India wins or looses its secondary, I just enjoy Sachins' batting. On this day Sachin retires from test cricket. Yesterday I was reading a news article about a gymnast from Karnataka accidentally fractured his spine and is disabled for his life for the accident. His father was an auto driver. He was given 50,000 for the mishap and thats all. For a disabled body with a very meagre family income, Im not sure how many days can he live a dignified life. There is a line from a telugu song in Arya 2, which goes like this "Laksha Mandi naina savalu chese aata gaadi pogarantha". I feel sports persons are gifted , They deserve to live a proud life.
Every sports person is an idol to me.

Light in the darkest cave

Raghu was confused with his life and sought out for a long journey on a holiday. The quote from the book Motorcycle diaries "Journey is the destination" had left an indelible impression on him. Every time he needs answers he chooses to go on a long journey. This time despite so many odds he chooses to drive 400 odd kilometers on his favoruite bike "Yamaha R15". Road to Lepakshi is a very boring drive. While returning he was beginning to feel the trip was such a meaningless spend of energy, He could've spent the same energy in a positive way.
 On the deserted road suddenly out of no where an Army person, was seen asking for lift. Although Raghu didn't want to loose speed and was keen to go back to the comforts of his house. He could not refuse this request for he had huge respect for Indian Army. As the army guy got onto his bike he introduced himself as Babu, and said he is a "Training Instructor" at the army. What bewildered Raghu was there was no army camp nearby, not even any settlement near the location where Babu got onto his bike, neverthless, Raghu started his bike and now he was driving bit responsibly for an Army Training Instructor was sitting on his bike.
  Although Raghu was little reluctant to speak, as he was already beginning to think his journey was fruitless, Babu broke the ice and said "where are you from sir?".  Raghu replied "Hyderabad". Babu felt a little connected and said "Sir I've a question, Does Chiranjeevi own LV Prasad Eye Institute", Raghu felt a little funny and thought how less informed people are and he replied "No sir, Chiranjeevi is not connected to LVPEI". Raghu became a little curious and asked "Whats the matter?", Babu replied, "They are very good people sir, My 3 year old daughter was treated by them, I had been told it would've costed a fortune if I had visited other hospitals, But they were generous to treat my daughter without asking for a single rupee", Raghu had a gleam of proudness in his eye to have connected to the same city and casually asked "So, everything is ok now?", Babu Replied "My daughter had cancer in her eyes and her both eyes had to be removed". Shocked at the reply , Raghu did not speak for a while, His eyes were now moist already feeling  sorry for the little girl's fate and said ,"Im sorry Mr.Babu, that must be very hard". On the contrary Babu was not feeling sad, and replied. "No Sir, God gives Power(shakti) from inside, and my daughter is very talented and can recognize any thing with just one touch and can recognize any one by voice, Im really proud to have such talented daughter.Also I need to get down here, Please stop near the traffic signal". Babu had again got down near a deserted area and said "Good luck to you sir".  Raghu felt happy to have found the answer for his journey and turned around to say good bye but to his surprise he couldn't see any one there, Babu seemed to have come from nowhere and walked into nowhere.
