love /lʌv/ Human chemical reaction leading to the release of happy hormones, dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and what not.
Standing at the xerox machine, I waited for my notes to be printed. I shouted from the line to fasten the process, unfortunately all my efforts were useless. I had been standing in line for an hour and the situation was so bad that if I had opened my mouth, I would have uttered profanities. Finally after waiting so long, he handed me the notes as I beamed my furrowed brows at him.
“Excuse me“, a tall, lean guy tapped at my shoulder. “Are these chemistry notes?“, he seemed to be clueless. He had big spiky hair and was wearing spectacles. “Yes, organic. You can get them here.“, being new in college was worst. I knew nobody and nobody knew me. ‘He was definitely a guy from my batch, but what was his name?’, I wondered. Not giving much attention, I went upstairs to resume my study session. Exams were a month later, and coming from a scholar family, I had a lot of pressure to bring laurels to my family. I sat on my seat and opened my chemistry notes and began my studies.
Sitting on the chair, I tried to concentrate; as the light from the lamp made the room illuminate. Books were scattered, papers were spread over the desk, but they were of no use as they gave me no rest. I looked around and saw no more, my vision was hindered and impaired, it could hardly reach the shore. I looked down and the murmurs began, “Are you crazy?”, “Don’t spoil your future”, “Our family is not meant for such chores”. Every time we went to someone’s house, false considerations and surfaced opinions showered me around, telling me my passion was good for nothing, it was not gonna get me a stable job or settle me in.
I know things are not going your way, and that it nags the hell out of you. But, Not always can you get what you really want. If you think that life is a bed of roses, then you have been in a delusion my friend. Yes, a big delusion. There is no fairy godmother, or a prince charming for whom you shall wait in a secluded tower of your thoughts.
Life serves you with its best version when you are least aware of it.
Indeed, few days back I had no clue I would be witnessing a drastic turn in my life.
I didn’t know life could be this fabulous until I attended ‘Young India Challenge’ Continue reading “One step closer…”→
“Oh my god, she removed her clothes.” “This is what happens to a girl when she wants to have fun” “She deserved it, westernization fucked her mind” “Didn’t she think before sending it to her boyfriend?” “What, he wasn’t her husband?” “She must be a slut, who else send nudes to someone?”
At some point of our life we all must have done it. But do we have the right to exploit a human being, up to an extent that they fear the outer world? We can’t be so cruel. We are not the demons lingering on a pure soul for their life.
What if that happens to you, how would you feel? When those harsh words glide on your mind, like a worm itching you that you get the urge to let go.
The story I’ll be narrating is based on a real life incident or rather I say real life threat, where a pervert with a mask of anonymity threatens a girl on exposing her nudes to the world.
