                       Prayer is when you talk to God...

                     Meditation is when you listen to God. 

                 Weave in faith and God will find the Thread!

दो कदम तुम भी चलो....Day VII

दो कदम तुम भी चलो
दो कदम हम भी चलें ।।.....

Today was the D day, I was joining the dance institute of Ishmeet to learn Salsa & the tutor was my friend for whom I had developed intimacy in a short span of time...It was not love at first sight but crush built up in two three meetings, I was bowled by his approach & care. Only one thing took toll on me that was the age difference between us. Me been elder to him by five years but I consoled myself citing the example of the Cricket master Sachin whose wife is seven years elder to him, Film actor Sunil Dutt- Nargis who had successful relationship & age never stood as a factor and I too desired to keep the relationship spark ignoring the difference.

The song of Jagjit Singh too was in my favor,

I said to myself, "Ishi...this song was written for you."

"ना उम्र की सीमा हो
ना जन्म का हो बंधन
जब प्यार करे कोई  
तो देखे केवल मन।।"

I hummed this & it boosted my confidence to proceed...n I was proceeding with full enthusiasm & vigor.

After office, I started for the dance institute which was a running of 20 minutes from my office by Metro. As I was going to step inside the Metro, I spotted Ishmeet.

"Hey, You here?" I asked

"Yeah, I shouldn't be here." He replied.

He had a habit of questioning rather than answering, a strange habit but I liked it.

"No, I had to meet you at your Institute naa."

"Lady, that's why I'm here to escort you, today is your first day so I thought that I better

catch you at the Metro station...even I had sent you an Sms...I believe you haven't

checked .." He replied with all the explanations. He knew the art of flattery which I lacked.

I was sailing on cloud nine...I was getting the attention from my friend who was dear to me & with time, I was getting closer to him & hopes were pinned on him...feeling lucky to have got a chance to indulge in my hobby which seemed distant in this life but Ishmeet was a blessing in disguise. I felt very happy & blessed.

We reached his Institute by 6:15 pm....He showed me his Institute. It appeared high profile Institute well equipped with modern accessories & the ambience stole my heart...but except for the guard none was found within the Institute. I was told that the official time of the Institute was from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm & was been given special attention because of my interest on account of been working woman.

My heart quipped, All could I say, "Thanks a lot, Ishmeet...it's my honor to be your privileged

student ...I will try to prove worthy of it!"

Soon we were in Dance room ...only we two...my heart missed a beat but I had faith in him. I was

given outfit to change for the classes...I felt a bit awkward in facing him in my new outfit...T-Shirt &

typical leggings....loose around the waist and tight near the ankles...even I wasn't in a practice to

wear such outfit but to learn something new. I had to...there was no way out...both were in same type

outfit...only the colors were different. He judged my reluctance & tried his best to comfort me.

He first showed me the steps...his movements were awesome...I was bowled over by his movements...delicate & flexible. Classy touch...asked me to take over but it wasn't easy for me b'coz I had never practiced...just danced to the tunes mostly in solitude ...just I had a passion for it.

He was very professional within the premises & coaxed me up to the maximum to give in my best...pestering me to practice each steps for a minimum of ten to twenty times to make my body flexible to each movements...been in finances...my body too had become rough & tough...now it needed to act delicate to each small movements with grace...I was sure that I would learn though I may take a bit longer than his other students which I declared myself so that he doesn't lose his patience.

"Hey...don't feel low...I may take more time of yours to learn than your other students...I'm a quick learner but my body may take longer to get used to the movements..." I told him.

"Okay Okay...Did I say something...Take your time...I'm here to teach you...Let me try Ishi...just

respond the way I ask you to. Let me take up the challenge..just bring in the grace in your movements.” He replied with a wide smile on his

face...his smiling face added glow to my life.

I didn't utter a word just tried to respond to his movements & during practice there were several

moments when we were very close to each other & could feel the warmth of our breath. I checked

myself...I wasn't sure how he felt...at times I felt weak...for him it might be like normal classes...but

for me each moment was special...I never been so close to anyone in these years.

How one hour passed...I couldn't make out...Ishmeet declared, “Classes are over for now...I'm

amazed by your efforts...you will outperform soon...I insist you to practice more in your free hours to

master the art...It is an art & all depends on the effort...hope you will not let me down."

I just watched him, my eyes on him...I didn't say anything but my naughty self-caught hold of his 

nose & pulled it leaving him bewildered.

"Hey, are  you crazy" He said.

"Yes, I’m  ..." ran to washroom to change & he stood still.

दो कदम तुम भी चलो....Day VI

दो कदम तुम भी चलो
दो कदम हम भी चलें ।।......

I,a carefree girl never bothered about looks was suddenly overpowered & conscious of her looks & hairdo...It was the after effect of new friend, Ishmeet which had taken entry into my life abruptly & it wasn't clear what we felt about each other (never discussed) but a feeling was overpowering me & a clear change I found in myself. Most of the time I was engrossed in his thoughts & an unknown happiness gushed within me keeping my adrenaline shoot up....Life seemed pretty & I was in love with the colorful hues of life....Extra zing added in my life with the addition of Ishmeet in my life.

Music flowed in my blood stream & the emotional numbers left me been more romantic & I felt soaring at new heights & in my little lovely world, I could only see my friend , Ishmeet who was even part of my name, Ishi...my four lettered name in which his presence was there too, he held three words of my name...it was coincidence & it had to collide with me only...even our hobbies were the same...just the difference was that he was pursuing his dreams & I was pursuing a career of financial freak where numbers were more important & no existence of emotions in financial world,...leaving my hobby behind...now I felt he has come into my life to help me to fulfill my dream though I wasn't sure what length I could achieve...too early to conclude but a ray of hope emerged & this hope gives people a new life.

Today was Sunday but different from past Sundays when I lazed around carelessly...I was on my toes today...decorating my place beautifully & taking care of my skin and looks & dressed in a smart outfit which boosted my confidence.... every now & then checking my mobile...secretly I was expecting a call or SMS ....even while surfing online, my attention was focused on Hangout inbox.

"Hey, what's going on Ishi " a message popped up from the corner. It was Ishmeet online

"Hi Ishmeet...enjoying Sunday Dear"

"Me too...R u ready for the classes tomorrow"

"Yup...any doubts :)"

"No, no doubts but bit nervy...the reasons unknown"

"Why so...Am I bothering you...I won't trouble you, relax"

"Ohh  ...I was just kidding to check on you....be cool...just practice few steps of warming up so that you are warmed up for the classes...got my point."

I understood the senses of warming up but I wasn't in my senses since I met Ishmeet & the word warm up sent goose bumps within me. I hit myself to keep myself in my senses....the case was of crush though it wasn't first one, the first crush I have for is for My Idol Superstar Amitabh Bachchan whom I watch with an Awww... expression & a sweet smile spread on my lips & crush for a person close to me was for Ishmeet....in whose memories I was drowned for most of the time of the day.

I literally enjoyed his company though I haven't expressed believing that he must have come to know reading my attitude & I felt he too had feelings which drew him to me...strings of faith. My feelings for him was growing skin deep & mere thought of joining his classes had left me spellbound & I was been spoiled.

दो कदम तुम भी चलो....Day V

   दो कदम तुम भी चलो
  दो कदम हम भी चलें ।।......

"Hi Ishi.You are looking awesome" his remarks made me blush, I could feel my cheeks hot and turning to crimson & an unknown happiness gripped me. I felt quite at ease with Ishmeet; though I took time to mingle, but this time it was just the opposite may be I was destined to meet him in such manner.

"You are looking dashing too, Ishmeet!" I exclaimed.

"I am always dashing!" he remarked sarcastically.

"Hmm..." I could comment but thought better not to leaving him to enjoy the triumph.

A lot was exchanged about our background, family & of our life till we met, over a cup of coffee. One fact that emerged was remarkable age difference between us. I was near to five years elder to him, a remarkable difference...in our society acceptable choice of relationship is boy been elder to girl. It was a matter of flutter for me though Ishmeet was cool. The guys are indifferent from us, God knows what they think but they don't go wary like us, it was my presumption.

This was our first meeting, a planned one, so I didn't had any desire to spoil the sport so keeping this worry aside, we shared lot of tit-bits & enjoying the company...it sent butterflies in my stomach. It was a moment to be cherished.

At 7pm, we parted our ways, it was a nice long meeting & the heart wanted more and more..."Dil Mange More...”

The meet was a refreshing one and in my life, one chapter of fondness & crush had been added instantly & unknowingly, I could feel the changes within. Life seemed to be more colorful than before & onlookers could well take note of it.

 At night, we hung up on the Google Talk…it was a start off of an unknown relationship certain that something was brewing between us, found his association comforting, longed for his calls or Sms…

“Hi Ishi...what’s up” Ishmeet message flashed in hangout.

“Nothing as such, reached safely...” I wrote

“Are u sure Nothing…………. ;) ”

“Yup…Y.. :)

“Aren’t u thinking of me..;) “ message popped up from Ishmeet.

I took time to respond this time just to see his reaction.

“Just Kidding..” popped up again

“Me too..”  I typed

After leg pulling & kidding, I told him that I was keen to join his institute for learning Salsa.

“Hey, I am keen to learn Salsa, are you going to teach me?” I typed

“Why not…certainly, you are most welcome but directly you can’t learn Salsa, you have to learn the basics too.” He wrote.

“I don’t know what I have to learn but you are only going to teach me and nobody else.” I typed bluntly; unlike my nature who thinks twice before asking for something but with Ishmeet, I was informal, no inhibitions.

“Yes Madame, I’m at your service. Let me know when you are intending to join.” Message flashed .

I called on his no.& discussed in detail. Finally, it was concluded that he would be giving special classes after my office hours & I would be paying his fees as per his institute regulations. We were so engrossed in ourselves that we didn’t realize the time. Suddenly, I checked the time, it was 11 pm. We bid goodbye & hung up the line.

There were several missed calls of my Mom. I contacted Mom and told her about my new venture to join Salsa classes.

After changing into informal, chasing sweet thoughts of my new found friend whom I found close to my heart, I glided into the world of sweet dreams.
