The sighting!

One of the advantages of living in Chanakyapuri is the proximity of Nehru park. Whenever the urge hits, I don my keds and head out for the cool greens of the park. Not to mention, the sights are soothing for the eyes.

Coincidentally, I was trailing behind one such sight the day before last evening. Six feet tall ( maybe a little too tall), muscular shoulders, a taut bottom and athletic legs. He had appeared suddenly from behind and I had missed a chance of catching the face. I love these atheltic types. Anyway, they are a rare species, unless its a defence officer ( I am biased). Hmmm, inspiration is never quite lacking when taking walks in a apark :). So, here I was, in complete Mills and Boons style imagining the angular cut of the face, a well defined jaw, dark pools in which one could drown ( borrowed line from one of the many MBs) and a smile to die for. Lost in my reverie, with a smile plastered to my face, I hardly noticed we had reached the end of the round. I was only two steps behind this thing when he turned…

………A goatee beard that hadn’t quite made up its mind about growing, gawky braced teeth and bushy eyebrows turned to look at me, and then with a smile, most unlike what I had imagined, he says ” Goad Avening” . No jokes here. THUD, reminiscent of Ekta Kapoor pauses for effect, I had fallen to Earth. The beauty had turned beast. The man was an overgrown boy! Didn’t help that I had had no time to erase the grin from my face.

I nooded saintly and walked away..


About Namita

A melange of colors, just like the rainbow. Sometimes, as bright as the yellow sun, brimming with energy. Then driven by the passion of red to pursue my dreams. Calm like the clear blue skies and playful like streaks of violets. I am a collection of stories, each different and yet the same. I am simple in my complexities and something in my nothingness. For my bread and butter, I am a reflexologist – a profession which is more than just a job, it is my passion. When I am not busy in conversation with the feet, I potter around with my camera lens, indulge in good music and snuggle in with my books. And when my energies begin running low, nothing perks me more than traveling to unknown places, meeting all sorts of people and exchanging tall stories. I am a founding trustee of the Uday Public Charitable Trust that hopes to provide the gift of education to children of martyred soldiers and also other deserving children. It is a cause close to my heart. My gypsy heart cannot sit still and I must always move, explore…The mountains call out ever so often and I am off with my backpack. Trek, trek, trek…I want to push my limits always..rediscover my fears and move forward with my strengths. i love myself and my life, I must be god’s favorite child . With much to do and much to see, i am on the brink of another journey, always.
