It was a soothing afternoon in the beginning of December in Auckland. Due to Covid I was stuck enough in a flat for more than months. Its been long that I haven't met mom and dad. As its wfh hence Im planning to go to India after 3 long years. Everything isn't same, people have changed, the world has been witnessed of a deadly virus attack. Somehow my personal life has also been scattered due to many reasons. A notification came in my phone- your flight Emirates EK449- Aukland to Mumbai is on time. Have a safe journey.
A ray of hope, a pinch of happiness suddenly started running through my veins. Finally I am going back home. I am egarer to meet mom and dad and moreover YOU.
An evening of July, I was standing in front of a coffee shop, it was our first date. A date which was fixed by our parents. I was patiently waiting for you amidst the noise and chaos of cars and buses. I was thrilled to meet u, even after a hectic day in office like we all wait for the first rain of the season.
Few moments later, an auto stopped by splashing the clogged water. You stepped outside while arranging your salwar and removed your hairs from your face which was half curled and drenched in rain. With a flash of lightning I saw u for the first time and that very moment I fell for you...
हमने सोचा नहीं था की जिसने अभी तक लोगों इंतजार कराया था उसे भी इंतजार करना पड़ेगा उसे भी किसी से मिलने को सबर करना पड़ेगा जो आज तक सबको इंतजार करया करता था आज कल खुद ही इंतजार में होगा जो सबके लिए जरूरी है कोई उसके लिए भी जरूरी होगा जो सबका का ख़्वाब था आज उसका भी एक ख्वाब है आज उसे भी प्यार हो गया जो प्यार से भागा करता था। पुनीत कुमार पीके
