Real life.

It's one of life's great paradoxes (if I can call it that) that most often , things totally unexpected from sumone amaze and affect you the most... Its like a cricket ball that hits you suddenly in the tummy when you're looking at the cutie sitting in the spectator stand, instead of fielding sincerely...

This is kinda embarrassing, but hey, that's what our blogs are for,right...to humiliate ourselves all the way and still be cool about it :P
Time and again, I've observed that my EQ's more inclined towards that of a woman (not trying to be chauv at all !).... now this is not to say I like pink and teddies and everything (that'd be REALLY freaky and i'd hv just shot myself )..... but rather, that I kinda am extremely fond of the idea of romance. No, not the current version of it ( love v 2.0 ?) but the original, archaic , possibly extinct version.
Also, all those grinning back there, Its not the Juliet standing in the balcony, and Romeo on the ladder kinda scene .....which is also impractical today.... but rather, the idea of everlast.

So, when I heard the following from someone I just casually know, I was just taken aback....albeit in a really nice way....

There's this guy I meet at work everyday..... and we just talk about this and that every now and then.... although he's like 15 yrs elder, lately, we've been hanging out and talking more cuz both of us are among the last to leave the office in the evening...
A few days ago he told me the story of his life. Yup, that's what I'm gonna call it. The story of his life, if he didn't just make it up then (hehe), which I don't think he did.....

when he ws like 21 or sumthing, chatting on the net was a really 'new' concept, and every youngster was addicted to it.... and as is obvious with ppl in general, there was a LOT of flirting everyone did, with everyone else..... I'm guessing due to the added advantage of anonymity, ppl cudn't hold back ;)
What he used to do ws flirt with 5 or 6 chicks at the same time (and i'm guessing they did the same) .... hilariously, he'd saved a particular format of letters which he'd send to all of em, with just the name changed ....hehe, easy?

Anyhow, he eventually REALLY started to like this 1 girl, and things started getting deeper..... they moved on to talking on the cell (yup, cell phones had just come into existance in India and only film stars and long distance lovers had 'em probly)......
Things kept happening, and the distance made their hearts grow together so much that they decided to go further..... and the first time they met was to get married !
None of the parents had agreed.... I'm guessing cuz it ws so unconventional (beta, wtf is this internet thing u keep jibbering about?)...

Still, they DID get married....they DID move in together.... they DID see the small incomes,small houses, lack of monetary comforts....They DID live in 1 room rented flats, they DID walk to save up on bus fares...... even though the families were incredibly well off (I think he told me his would-be-wife drove her own honda city to collg or sumthing )....
Its been 9 years now...I think they've made it across.

Now THAT takes balls.

Isn't it kinda wonderfully shocking when u come across such stories, instead of just watching 'em on cinema ?

Kudos to both of you, guys .... just thought this one definitely deserved a post.
