He got down from the cab and saw the ‘huge board’ : Welcome to Mumbai Airport.
He walked towards the Departure terminal where he was stopped by a security office for air ticket.
He showed him the itiniary along with his driving license.
Security office checked the details:
Name: Rudrak Mathur
He checked his Id proof, verified his details and allowed him to go inside.
He looked at his ID proof ‘it was pathetic’.
A person Facebook pictures are the best while his ID proof pictures are the worst.
He checked his watch- 5 am.
His parents always said ‘it’s better to reach early than late’.
He took his parents advice too seriously. He had reached way before.
He looked around most of the seats were taken.
He finally saw one empty seat in the deserted corner.
He quickly rushed towards the seat and settle down.
He looked around, he saw a girl deeply engrossed in reading ‘The Kite Runner’.
Wow, he liked the book.
‘A book which person is reading reflect a lot about a person’
He checked his phone, his battery was drained out.
He looked around to find a charger point . He saw one point in front of the girl to which a yellow color Nokia Lumia was connected.
‘Nokia, once industries bell weather now a merely an ordinary company. How suddenly time changes’.
He walked towards the point and asked her ‘Excuse, can I charge my phone. My battery is dead’.
She took out the phone and continued reading.
He again settled down to his chair and looked at his watch.
‘Still many hours to pass’
He passively looked around, the girl was still engrossed in her reading.
He finally decided to talk to her.
He mustered his courage and said ‘Hi. Where are you going?’
He introduced himself and they started talking.
Soon they were chatting non stop for next few hours about life in I.T, politics, and even relationships.
‘It’s always easier to open to strangers than to your closed one’
Finally the boarding announcement was done and they departed to their own destination.
1 month later,
He saw a ping from her on facebook.
They continued chatting ever since and became very good friend.
Inspiration: well, if every relationship becomes a love story than what will happen to friendship.. We are bound to attract toward opposite sex and many times this attraction leads to many break up. We always need friends to reckon upon in hard times as well as to enjoy in good times.
