Head Over Heels

(Nov 11, 2017)

Doorbell rings. Priya ran to open the door. Dad asks for the person.

“Plumber, Dad, the shower in my washroom is not working,” Priya lied.

“Oh, ok and you mister plumber, this is the fourth time you are coming here and could not detect a simple problem on shower. Check carefully or I will call someone else,” Dad said and got busy with the newspaper.

“Sure sir,” he pulled the hammer from his pants and went to Priya’s room.

As soon as they reached inside, Priya locked the room and shouted. “Have you gone mad? Dad will kill me if he gets to know that my boyfriend comes here as plumber.”

“But what should I do? I can’t live without you,” he replied and hugged Priya.

“Shut up and repair my shower,” Priya smiled and dragged him to the washroom.

“Sure madam,” he winked and opened the tap of the shower.

Once again, Shower was working fine.

Lavish house. Expensive cars. Rich lifestyle. High paying job.

What else I should expect from the life.

He thought when he saw the newspaper. He was again featured on the first page of the Business Daily.

Everyone thinks he is the most successful person, but they don’t know there are some things which he cannot buy even today.

“Definitely money can buy everything, but still some things are out of its league and love is one of them.”

She married to him because he was very protective towards her, but after the marriage, he became careless.

With the time, his pockets were getting heavier, and the wall between them was getting bigger.
Now only he orders and she listens.

He never asks her about her feelings. Romantic dinners had become business talks. Outings had become business trips.

He had the power to buy anything except a smile for her face.

(Oct 23, 2017)

It was New Year's Eve party.

Around the campfire, all the happy faces, except one.

And yes, that was me.

But I had no idea why I was unhappy. I was unhappy because she was not with me, or I was unhappy because she was enjoying life without me. At that moment I had no idea that this night will change my life completely.

That night I realised “Happiness comes only to those who want to adopt it.” and I decided to give myself one another chance.

Since that day, I started enjoying the small things. Started salsa classes to learn something new and eventually I got few new friends. Gradually I found a new man inside me, and over the time I came to know that my own existence is far better than someone else's.
Finally, I became the same old man who was lost somewhere between reality and repentance.

अपनी शिफ्ट ख़त्म करके मैं और माधव घर जा रहे थे. मैं कुछ देर पहले हुई बारिश से भीगी सड़क से उठते हुए धुए को देख रहा था. अचानक रोड के किनारे मुझे कुछ दिखाई दिया.

'माधव प्लीज गाडी रोको', मैंने तेज़ी से अपनी सीट पर बैठते हुए कहा.

माधव ने गाडी रोकी और हम दोनों उस जगह पहुँच गए. सड़क के किनारे एक छोटा सा परिवार था जिसमे दो बहुत ही छोटे बच्चे घटना से अनजान खेल रहे थे मगर उनकी माँ के पैरों से खून बह रहा था, शायद किसी ने उसके पैरों को कुचल दिया था.

मैंने माधव की मदद से उन्हें तुरंत गाडी में लिया और हम पास के हॉस्पिटल पहुँच गए. तक़रीन आधे घंटे बाद हमे डॉक्टर ने कहा की हम उन्हें घर ले जा सकते हैं.

मैं ये बात जनता था की सोसाइटी हमे ऐसे किसी को रखने की अनुमति देगी नहीं और शाम के 8 बजे उनके लिए एक घर खोज पाना आसान नहीं था. तभी माधव ने सुझाव दिया की अगर हम उन्हें पार्किंग पे आज रात सोने की जगह बना दे तो किसी को पता भी नहीं चलेगा और सुबह हम उन्हें किसी सुरक्षित जगह पहुंचा सकते हैं.

तुरंत ही घर पहुँच कर हमने कुछ कागज़ के खाली कार्टन लिए और कुछ पुराने कपडे मैं घर से ले आया. चंद ही मिनटों में उनका नया घर तैयार था.

सुबह जब मैं और माधव पार्किंग में पहुँच तो कुत्ते के वो दो छोटे बच्चे खेल रहे थे और उनकी माँ जो कल रात घायल थी आज आराम से बैठी अपने बच्चो को खेलता हुआ देख रही थी.

उन्हें उनका नया घर शायद हमारे पार्किंग में मिल चुका था.

‘Please don’t choose such open coffee shops if you want to meet me again', she tried to hide her face.

‘I’m sorry, so what have you decided, are you ok with the deal’, he asked.

‘Look, just for once, and I am doing this only for money. Promise me after that you will not try to meet me again.'

‘Yeah, I promise.’

‘One more thing, I want all the money in Advance.’

‘Ok, no problem.’

‘Ok then will come tomorrow at 7’, she said and got up to leave the place. ‘One last question, may I ask’, she added.

‘Yes! Please go ahead.’

‘We have a long age difference, you can get any girl, why me?’

‘I just want to fulfill my desire’, he replied.

‘And your wife.’

‘You don’t worry, I will handle her.’

‘Ok’, she said, and went.

Congratulations!!! We have got the Surrogate Mother’, he dialed his wife’s number and informed.
