The Speech

#Episode 3

“She is an attractive talker and a good listener too.She had time for you ,when she has to attend a million works.She was with you,when she was wanted by many.She did not leave you when you intended to,not because she doesn’t value you ,because she cares for you.You were not her alternative ,she chose you among many and you are the only one choice.She fought for you,she stood by you,she sacrificed for you,she consoled you,she encouraged you,she caressed you.Hence,

My Dear

When was the last time you spent time with her?When was the last time you made her smile?When was the last time you complimented her?Or should I put it in this way ,when was the last time you loved her?Don’t you think it’s your turn now.”

I noticed silence for about few minutes.And I heard them (putting their hands together).I was giggling and left the place with thank you.Well,it is the least compliment everyone could get.But,the matter is I did well.I imagined this entire speech practicing like a one hundred times.But this was the best among all of them.Yeah,I didn’t tell you, today is activity day which means we are supposed to talk ,act,write.Of course this is what we do on non-activity day.This is little special with not having a bossy editor who monitors on your writings.We are free to express anything.But,my left eye started blinking,there should be something waiting for me ,as everything went on well till now,I thought. As  my eye lashes were dashing into each other at a speed 3 ×10²³ m/sec.I was sitting on my chair when some of my so called friends complimented me on the speech,I thanked them .

I was not interested to work ,so stood up  and stared into everyone laughing,gossiping.Looking into someone like that would make me feel walking on the thorns.Eventually,I wanted to leave.But you know,our office is  like a one way thing ,you only have the choice to get in and the other it only happens in the late night. Perhaps ,I should just gossip with my system then.Then I saw him and murmured “Here comes the Philanthropist”.Now this is something great ,isn’t it?Everyone gets to enjoy with their friends and am here with regular work.But Ayush, just waved at me and went into editor’s office.I hoped he would never come back.I have a “I am so selfish” kinda feeling when I talk to him.

Great!!! Aditi ,You always complain people about gossiping and now you were just sitting in that chair and judging everyone on your way. Doesn’t make much difference,does it?





Too much to have


tik tik tik tik tik………………..

I woke up and was so indelible to get ready ,combed my hair ,put on shoe ,grabbed my backpack,Which I packed last night with reusable water bottle,walking stick,Sunscreen SPF ,trousers and shirts with few snacks.Yes,Yes,Yes I am going on a trek.I was flying in between clouds with over exhilaration .Many things were revolving round my head like where  it would start?How does it go on?What I would be like at the end of the day? Yeah,I know I am over reacting .But,Guysss My friends are here after a very long time of anticipation.And,Finally came up with this plan. Wouldn’t you be the same?

Before I left ,I checked everything was closed and switched off ,in place and locked the apartment.I started ,an hour before the expected  time.

#Next day

It was another usual day so called monday , a day with so much of detachment .Not that I am disinterested at work,It was the choice of mine and mine alone.Could not think much of past then,every corner of my body is aching like a hell and when I put two feet on the floor ,its like am getting in touch with  fire.None of my body parts supported ,but still I wanted to run to office just to share about yesterday things.I was having coffee when I had call from one of my colleague .As a consequence,I was in office with a client in front of me.Assuming you still remember the guy(with all that handicrafts).I just wonder why would one want to start a store like that.Don’t they  see people craving for fashion and want to stand away from the crowd.Okay,Okay,I am back to my senses and hope I should owe a resolution right the next moment to focus only on my work.

Ayush:What do you think about the site?

Me: (My eyes were struck to the laptop and did not blink  for a while).It is                    WOW!!!How did you come up with so much beauty ,in just few days?

Ayush:Well,I had to rush up for those kids.

Me: your Kids?You are married?

Ayush:(He laughed out so loud)No,Not really.60 % of our earnings are donated to the orphans.Those orphan homes have been facing a lot of crisis since last year.Hence,we all came up with this idea.

Me:(was silent initially,quickly made up some words),excellent,perfect,super… etc,etc.I would not give a rupee to a child on roadside(month ending) I thought.

I watched him go as he left I know this is not me ,not emotional in a way though.

To the Respected Editor


Like every day,it was bright and intense ,sun emitting its true colors.I drove on my bike and went into office so  hurriedly that I could not possibly make an eye-contact with anyone and went to my desk.It took some time for me to adjust ,then everyone started to wish “Good Morning ” ,knowing who it is,I stood in my place and greeted him,when he looked at me, signaled me to come in,with his hand.I went in immediately into his cubicle ,a few minutes later,he asked  me to call the person waiting in the hall.I accompanied myself with the man from the hall to the cubicle.My editor introduced me to the man saying “He is the founder of a new startup , planning to build a website for his company.So,you’re  job here is to present the site more verbally,literally with the words.”and he stopped.I did not say anything in response, he also told me to take the person to my desk and to know about their product.I took him along with me to my desk ,I asked for his name ,he said “I am Ayush”,forwarded his hand .I told him “Ayush ,will you wait for a sec ,I will be back” and ran into editor’s office.

“Sir,I don’t understand,this is what I have been doing in my initial stage .Importantly ,I have done many more.”I was still speaking and he interrupted me telling to close the door when leaving the office.I had nothing to do,he did not even ask me for an explanation of my mistake.I sat down on my chair and looked above.As I saw him with a smile then I came back to my senses and pulled a chair from my desk and said “Ayush, sit and so sorry for the delay”.He seemed to be cooler and asked if he can start.

Ayush: We are building a site for online shopping and it holds the handicrafts such as                                greetings,paintings,show pieces…blah,blah,blah.

(I was gazing onto the wall ,left side of him and did not pay any concentration to what he was telling……then I heard no word .So,I looked at him.)

Ayush: What do you say?

Me:       wow!!!!That’s a brilliant idea.Why don’t you start  immediately?

Ayush:  (laughing with all his 32 teeth) yeah,we have already started and that is why I am here

Me:       I laughed too(not in a mood though).I will start as soon as you send me the website with  its full structure and complete with the products.

Ayush: Thank you!!!

(we shook hands and he left)

It was 1:30 PM .And I peeked into editor’s office standing in front of the door.Then I felt like a one ton of  weight on my shoulder.As an effect I moved forward ,my nose got hit to the door and I turned back to see.So,here he is (Editor sir),without any delay I told him all the things that took place yesterday and the reason for our argument.

Editor: Wait,wait,wait.I know all this before,everyone in the office told me what                                happened .But,the reason I gave you this work today is the assigned writer for it                  is on leave.So,respected Aditi will you do it for us without any extra                                         charge(smiling with a wink).

Me:(My heart was so relaxed when I heard him)Of Course,sir.
