The ashtray. That familiarly putrid scent of Grandpa and fire. Ash to copper. The disgusting aftermath of domineerence. A whole genre built on the disgust of one man. I can still see how he looked when I was fifteen. Confused and raging against my defiance. Even at his worst he seemed a little boy. I even caught juvenile glint at fifteen; and believe me when I say that I used that intuition to my advantage. It wasn’t long before we were fisticuffs twice a month. When I was forced to return home for hunger or outstaying my welcome.

Real incident of my life... must read you will be shocked too :- (for english scroll down below)

एक दिन की बात है मैं दोपहर का खाना खा रहा था। और मैंने खाते हुए अपने पास से एक आवाज़ सुनी जो की मूषक के बच्चो की थी। उनकी माँ उनके पास नहीं थी और वो भूक से तड़प रहे थे।
शायद उनकी माँ उनके लिए खाना ढूंढने गई थी। मुझसे उनकी ये हालात देखि नहीं गई और मैंने उनके पास एक रोटी का टुकड़ा रख दिया पर वो इतने छोटे थे की वो उसको खा नहीं सकते थे। फिर मैंने सोचा की उनकी माँ तो खा ही लेगी आ कर और फिर इनकी भी भूक मिट जायेगी अपनी माँ के दूध से। और फिर तब ही उनकी माँ वहां आ गई पर उसके पास कोई खाना नहीं था। मुझे लगा की वो भूकी है इसलिए वो ये रोटी का टुकड़ा खा लेगी। पर मैं ये देख के हैरान रह गया उसने उस रोटी के टुकड़े को...

In 4 hours this year will end and still, she can't talk to him at all. She tried everything to get his attention but the man is so ignorant, arrogant, workaholic, evil brute, brutally cold-hearted handsome man. She tried to say hi to him in the middle of the street when they accidentally meet, he turned away and made her looked like a fool. She thinking maybe she made a mistake. She thought 'maybe he is a very shy man' so she tried another way which is giving him a basket of food like a picnic with a note.

          The music was playing with a special saxophone solo. She sat on her couch with a glass of wine, admiring him... Sitting at his desk, still working,she stood up and said " Man work, work  and just work.. Could you stop it sometime for the God's sake? Don't you know?  Today is Christmas Eve and spend little time with me and baby, rejoice in the name of Jesus " He put back his files in the shelf and had a smile at her and stood up. Sorry darling " he said " and gave a warm kiss on her cheek, while he was saying jokingly ".Work is worship darling " .

Cold night!

The music was playing with a special saxophone solo.
She sat on her couch with a glass of wine, admiring him....sitting at his desk, still working,
She stood up & lit a scented candle & tried to distract him from his work, all she wanted to do, was to spend some "WE" time with him.
She sent him some sweet & flirty texts just to distract him a bit, but could not really do it.

She felt something unusual about the night.
Slowly the fragrance was kind of hypnotising her, as if she was dreaming...
Heading into a quiet cold night with him, she wanted to snuggle in a large sweater & lay down next to him.
Skin to skin, holding him close, just to stay warm.
She just wanted to hol...

The Music was playing, with a special Saxophone Solo. She sat on her Couch with a glass of wine, admiring him... who was hot like molten lava#Mesmerising, Seducing; sitting at his desk, still working, she stood up and... walked towards him!
        That handsome tall guy, whoz eyes were blue with passion, whoz breath was provoking, whoz figure was inviting# That MACHO man who was the answer to all her questions, her fantasy hero, that perfect guy who finally made all her imperfections perfect.

Love you Jaan

The music was playing, with a special saxophone solo. She sat on her couch with a glass of wine, admiring him... Sitting at his desk, still working.
She stood up and she left,for she was fearful that her admiration might turn into her desire that shall defy her morale.
She turned back to see him work with such intense passion that she could only henceforth dream of on her bed.
She left,but,with a fragrance of her desire too strong to tickle him after she was gone.
He stopped working and so did the saxophone stop, which only purged out  silence of desire out of that room.
A silence too loud to break the glass of her husband's car's windows and hit her on her ears, caressing her neck.
Unsaid ...

"She had waited for this moment for years. And now it had finally arrived. She opened her eyes and....."

She never thought that she could meet him. She thought he was just her imagination. A character that was made from her crazy imaginative brain. Yet, she knows that the heat she felt when she dreamt of him is the same heat she felt right now. The hug that so warm that even word can't describe it. The one thing that can make hearts melt, that brings the smile to her lovely face.

She doesn't want to open her eyes afraid the warm of the hug would disappear. She did feel this hug is real and she keep hearing a man's voices saying 'ouch' every couple of minutes because she pinches him.

नाराज़ हूँ आपने आप से,
इन लफ़्ज़ों की मोहताज हो गयी ज़िंदगी ।

यह मैने कहा , क्या उसने कह दिया ?
एक भभकतीं आग हो गयी ज़िंदगी ।

एक हसीन सफ़र बनाना था इसे ,
पर ना जाने कब मिटके ख़ाक हो गयी
ज़िंदगी ।

The betrayals
Those negative comments against her
People just ghosting on her sincerity
And everything that she lost while being jn a relationship with a man she thought she would get married to
She lost her best of health
She lost her confidence
She lost herself
And the battle was too hard
She desperately wanted to get out of all this and live a better life for herself

Not knowing what and how to do things she started to walk down an unknown road.
Wasn't the case that she didn't fear at all, but she was too lost in her hurt that she wouldn't realise a thing happening to and around her

There was a man who noticed her and thought that something is wrong.
So he followed her and noticed that...

MERRY CHRISTMAS

She had waited for this moment for years. And now it had finally arrived. She opened her eyes and the light flooded her eyes. The glaze dispersed and the faint blur of colours filled in. The objects took shape and the faces became clearer. It was the first sight she had ever seen and she wanted to catch every little detail. A month ago when she heard that the operation is finalized she couldn't wait to see the world but inadvertently she had to. It was a long month, much like an year particularly hard for her husband but now as she saw his gleaming happy face her euphoria became boundless. All she wanted to do was to see her husband's smiling face every day for the rest of her life.

She had waited for this moment for years.
And now had finally arrived.

She opened her eyes
and there he was.
A little misaligned and soaking wet.
The storm had lasted longer than they had announced earlier.

A part of her wanted to scream with joy but there was an expression on his face that persuaded her
not to do so.
From the distance
she noticed that something was not right.

As he walked towards her she could see that he was uncomfortable.
He took great steps until he reached her.
She was sheltered
under a small roof
at the train station.
Like magic, he pulled a bouquet of red roses under his pilot.

“They are 7” he said, “...like the days we were not together.
An eternit...

"HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE"

She had waited for this moment for years. And now it had finally arrived. She opened her eyes and.....
.....and found herself in a completely different world, where sadness is deprived, and happiness can be seen in abundance. Eccentricity existed; people believed being different was a sign of being your own self, as everyone is imperfect. But they even believed hardwork was the key to their goals, which made them feel that without anyone's help, they could be more of that kind. And they did not believe in teamwork. This is where they lacked behind.
And as she pretended to be one of them, her cloud of thoughts was burst as she came back int...

She had waited for this moment for years. And now it had finally arrived. She opened her eyes and
She sighed loudly between tears by finally noticing the brightness of her own inner star.
She could handle everything. With every obstacle that was presented to her, with every fear that blocked her until paralyzing at times. And there she was. On top of the peak of her own life.
Happy. At last.
Juliet.

She had waited for this moment for years. And now it had finally arrived. She opened her eyes and saw her dream come true. The mic in her hand, the crowd cheering, spotlights on her,  the orchestra ready to rock the concert, the self assuring smile her idol gave her.

She closed her eyes again. She pinched herself to make sure she isn't dreaming. Many thoughts suddenly rush into her mind like a quick flashback to how she finally reached The Stage. Ever since she was a child, she knew what she wanted to be...... A singer !!

    She had waited for this moment for years. And now it had finally arrived. She opened her eyes and saw he was standing in front of her but she couldn't utter a word while he came forward and embraced her. The wind subsided as if in shyness. They fixed their date of honeymoon. Whatabout money my honey ? She said and giggled.

Ela abriu os olhos e viu que afinal não era bem assim como ela julgava ser. Que a vida não era só ganhar independência e autonomia. Esqueceu-se que aquele momento por que tanto ansiava não lhe trazia a felicidade da vida mas sim uma maior solidão .
Descobriu que para ser sozinha , afinal precisava de mais do que aquilo que julgava. E ficou sem chão, metaforicamente, na sua nova casa.
