Finally, Ishi boarded the train for Chandigarh for her hometown…Every time she started for her home, she would be overjoyed, but this time it was missing….the break up had filled her with remorse & she didn’t wish to leave the place longing for her love to return..though the chances seemed quite bleak but people live on hope…Even when things go wrong, hope is the only positive thing in life which keeps us alive. She was in trance; the memories of Ishmeet following her.
“Hi, I’m Ishmeet from Delhi !”
“Hello, I am….me too from Delhi!” I did not disclose my name deliberately…he was stranger for me but there was something about his demeanor which didn’t let my eyes off.
“Hey, Your good name?” he inquired
“What’s in a name, a rose is a rose ..” I reciprocated with a smile
“Hmmm ” said Ishmeet with a broad grin.
He didn’t dare to ask anything., he was offended, his reaction was natural..This was our first meeting while travelling in Delhi Metro. I got down at Rajiv Chowk & headed for my office.This first meeting was the impressive one, there was some spark in the meeting..early to conclude…what it was…but there was something and Ishmeet had caught my attention..he was there with me …there was something in him & I wanted to meet him again…but where will we meet…only glances were exchanged & my outright decline might have hurt him somewhere..I felt now
