"Ruko"! she shouted as she ran behind the bus. "Stop!"
But it was of no use, the bus sped off, leaving her huffing and puffing in a cloud of dust. She stopped, sighed and threw her bag on the road. How would she get to work NOW?!
"Madam! Handbag you want? Sandal?" a little urchin asked with a cheeky grin.
"Nahi nahi, paise nahi hain. No money.” came her automatic response. She was used to these beggars and peddlers by now.
"Madam Ji, aap se paise maange kya maine? Aap item toh dekho."
She took a closer look at the cart in the child's hand. It seemed to contain an assortment of oddities. One golden sandal, a blue handbag with no strap, a shiny purple button, a frayed piece of ribbon...
These were her excerpts...we had to complete the story from here on ….. So from here on it’s my version of how the story would move…
With a curious look she took the handbag from the cart, it was so similar to the handbag she had just thrown on to the ground, except that her bag had a strap to it.
“Ye kitne ka hain”?
“Sirf Yahin chayiye madam”? He still had that cheeky grin on his face.
Tum chup chap batao nahin toh …..
Her phone started ringing
“The child troubling you Kavita eh? You are getting late my dear, aren’t you?”
Ha! Do you think I am gonna tell you …Anyways Listen …..Take all the things from him. And give him a hundred bucks. Poor kid. We have already paid him 500. Look at him. Doesn’t he look really happy?
Who the ……??
Look up to your right, Will you?
As Kavita looked up she saw her good friend standing at the terrace of a nearby building.A gun pointing to his forehead.
Now you know what to do? Do As I say.
Kavita finally gave in.
Ok now what?
Eh? Good Question.
You didn’t get a bus, did you? Delhi I tell ya. But hey no problem. Take that rickshaw to your left. The poor guy hasn’t got a customer so far. He will be glad to take you to Lodhi Gate.
As she reached Lodhi gate, now what?
The man had disconnected.
The phone rang again. This time it was naman.
“Kavita don’t do anything what these people say …go straight to your office plzz.pl…”
“Eh? Good try Naman Sorry for the disconnection Sweety. The Building to the left of CCD. Somebody will be glad to see you in B-44.”
As Kavita rang the bell, nobody responded. The Door was already open.
“There’s no one here.”
“Well what is it near the wall hanging on the left of the television that you see?”
“And what’s the month?”
“What the….. *Shit*”
A loud mixture of Laughs chuckles and giggles filled the room.
Kavita wasn’t too amused.
P.S : A special Thanks to Kirti …If you hadn’t provided the excerpts I wouldn’t have been able to come up with this …I actually didn’t wanna post this here in my blog but as I said I had to come up with something "funny"….It was time…Sowwie :P

I look myself in the mirror (very rarely) and invariably say “Why do I look this way? Why shouldn’t people take me for granted if I look this way?” May be it’s not because the way I look but the things I do that things do not fall in place. It could a combination of both too. And the worse part in all of this is that as the time goes by people start saying “Ye toh aisa hee hain” (He’s like that only)... Ha! Believe it or not I visited my junior coll recently and the prof said the same thing when he saw me after a long time the only difference being he said it in marathi. “Haa Assachs hain”. May be one could argue that he meant that I looked the same since he saw me last. But hey he had a perception about me and guess that stays on forever.. Is it too late to change thyself? To change people’s perception? Or Should I join the orkut community “Be Yourself” and give a damn to their perception? I know you would say the latter but it ain’t easy and I will tell you why :P
We celebrated Traditional day in college this Friday and we also had something called as “the matka awards” given away in our class. Well it deals with your fellow classmates nominating and giving away awards in various categories and one gets a matka i.e. a tea cup kinda thingy and hence the name. And so everybody voted and I did manage to win thanxs to majority of the girls who voted for me :P
What did I get?
Ha! Well not that I don't want to be decent but I am sure you get the drift :P

Ok this requires me of putting in 25 different things regarding myself. Here’s what I came up with :)
1. Majority of the people find me cute but not handsome. Do you think that it’s the same? I don’t :P

Was a foggy kind of a morning
when our eyes met.
"Why are we doing this?” she asked
“May be because we have to!”
“Why do we have to?”
I didn’t have an answer.
She looked at me again
“Why can’t I wear what you are wearing?”
“You will dear, one day definitely :)”
“But why not now, she retorted”
Again, I had no answer.
She had her eyes fixed on me now
“Your bag seems so light”
“Yes it is! In fact it has nothing :P”
“Why is mine so heavy, it hurts my shoulders”
I was searching for an answer.
"Teacher scolds me everyday, do you get scolded?"
"Yeah, for not sitting lectures"… :P
"But we don’t do that and still get scolded, even get beaten sometimes.... why does that happen?"
My answers were beginning to dry up.
“I haven’t done my homework, Have you?”
“Heh! We don’t get any homework dear!”
“Why do we do then …that too in heaps?”
I finally took my eyes away.
After a few seconds I gazed at her and gave a little smile
“Look at you, why are you smiling now?”
“No, Nothing to do with you girl.”
“Why do you think I am not?”
I guess, I knew her answer.
Her School bus arrived and her mom bid her goodbye. She still had a frown on her face. I was left stranded alone waiting for my bus.
P.S: Inspired by a cute lil’ girl in her school uniform staring at me from a distance early in the morning when we both were waiting for our bus. Instantly this came to mind :D.... She had such an “Ohh I don’t want to go to school mommy” kind of an expression that I almost felt sorry for her :(

This was what I had come up with ....
I was down that day
But not out, not yet
Many had a lot to say
But I got back, you bet!
It was all because of somebody though
Someone whom I saw campaigning
Addressing to the thousands gathered
Firmly said he,” Yes We can!”
The assurance in his voice
Rang like a gong in my ear
People could now make a good choice
My path suddenly felt so near.
He had a strong Belief
That he could bring about change
People had a strong belief too
In his ability, persona and range.
He is now the president
Must have dreamt that as a child
It had become a reality now
People around the world smiled.
If he can, then why can’t we?
Self Confidence is all that we need
We must do something before we die
So let’s start sowing that seed.
