Mohabbat

"Mohabbat bhi Zindagi ki tarah hoti hai
Har mod asaan nehi hota, har mod pe khushiya nehi milti.
Jab hum zindagi ka saath nehi chhodte toh
Mohabbat ka saath kyun chhode??

Tina got the text from an unknown number, it was written…

Potato —2 Kg.
Cauliflower —2 pieces.
Brinjal---2 kg
Tomato—1 kg
Green Chili—500 gm
Mocha(Cone of the Banana)---2 piceses
Ladies Finger—500 gm
Pumpkin—2 kg

Tina was very busy in his works, she hold the post of Deputy Manager of a private bank. The text really made her surprised, she was sure it can’t be from her home because before leaving from her house she asked her Mom whether she has to buy anything or not. She thought may be any of her friends is doing joke with her or may be any boy is trying to disturb her. She ignored the message and concentrated on her works.


After almost one hour she got a text from another unknown number, it was written…


“Sunscreen lotion---1 bottle (My preferred band)
2 exercise books.
2 pencils
2 art papers, one of white colored and another yellow colored.
1 bottle shampoo (My brand)”


“What’s going on?”---this is the thought came into Tina’s mind but she was too busy to call the numbers.

Thirty minutes before her office breakup she got a call from the first unknown number, a middle aged woman called and said…

Hi Tina, have you got the lists? First one is from me and the second one is from my daughter.

Tina politely asked---yes, I have got, now kindly tell me who are you?

Lady answered---You don’t know me, even you have never seen me, actually I need your help.

Tina---what kind of help?

Lady—please write down the items of the texts in a paper, and give the list to the boy who is standing in the tea stall near the entrance of your office, he has wore black shirt and blue jeans.

Tina---why should I do this? Who are you? Who is that boy? If I don’t do this then what will happen? Will you disturb me more?

Lady answered in an upset voice---if you don’t do this then we all have to remain almost in empty stomach for today night.

The answer surprised Tina a lot, she asked politely…aunt; please tell me what’s going on?

The lady said---you just see the boy and you will get the answer.
Coming out from office Tina saw the boy in the tea stall but did not talk to him.

She was heading to her house and dialed the number of that lady and said---yes I have seen that boy, now tell me in details what’s going on?


The lady said--- he is my son, one year ago he visited your bank for some work, that day you helped him and from that day he started to like you. With time he started to love you and now he is totally mad for you, you know, for first six months he did not tell us anything but one day he could not resist himself and shared his every feelings with us, all the time he talks about you, while taking dinner he says…”who knows Tina is eating what items today?”  Before going for bath he murmurs…” what brand of shampoo and soap Tina like?” during summer days he was curious to know whether you take proper care of your skin or not? During rainy days he always waited for you in front of your office to be sure whether you have brought umbrella or rain coat or not. Each and every day from past one year he waits near the tea stall of your office for just a glance of you. He has got your number six months ago, you gave him for official purpose, but from six months he is unable to call you, he feels nervous and weak. It’s the fear of losing you that makes him nervous. All these things are fine but from last three months he is totally drown in your thoughts, he forgets to bring household things, he forget to eat, he does not sleep for night after nights, plays romantic songs all over the night and some time our neighbors have made complain to us. 

The lady paused for a while. Tina was listening all these very curiously.


The lady said again---now tell me, how is it possible to run a house when you have lack of necessary things. Today I am suffering from fever, my daughter is taking care of me, she does not want to leave me for a second, this is the reason  neither I can go outside for marketing nor my daughter will go. My husband is outstation from two days for his official works, So there left only one way, to inform my son through you, if you tell her to do, we are sure he will not forget even a single item.

Unborn---Short Non-Fiction

Indian Bloggers

Almost six years ago it happened that…a new street dog started to roam in our colony, my family members used to feed that dog, that time one day my younger maternal uncle visited our house to spend his holidays, he loves these type of pets a lot, so he also started to feed that dog and liked to spend time with the dog. Uncle gave a name to that dog, he started to call her “Bhulur Maa”(In hindi it means “Bhulu ki Maa, In English…Bhulu’s Mom). 


Later in one year my uncle visited our house three four times, sometime to spend holidays, sometime for business meetings. Every time he used to feed that dog, that dog used to respond very well and liked my uncle.


Suddenly after one year, a question knocked into my sister’s mind, she asked me but I was unable to answer, only our uncle could give the right answer, so my sister decided to ask him when he will visit next time.


So, when next time our uncle visited our house and was feeding “Bhulur Maa”, then my sister asked him…

“You call this dog “Bhulur Maa”, but the question is …Where is Bhulu?, we have never seen “Bhulu”, where is he?”


My uncle smiled and said…”I have also never seen Bhulu, even I don’t know whether this dog has child or not…I just gave that name”

Hearing the answer we laughed out, later our uncle and we used to make joke asking…”Where is Bhulu?”

Every person of our colony used to call that dog as “Bhulur Maa”, but the fact is…no one has seen Bhulu.


Even no one knew whether “Bhlur Maa” had a child or not. 


Generally in villages there is a common way to address the women taking their children’s names, like “Raju ki Maa” , “Tina ki Maa” etc, and the original names of those women vanishes(people forgot) and they became well known with their children’s names, my uncle just followed this trend to address the dog.

जिसे तु आपनि दिल कि बात कहे सकति है.

मेरे लफ्ज़ तो बर्सो से खामोश पडे है

होट खुलते है तो सिर्फ...

दुयाऊन के लिये.
