 Melodious Sound Of Love

Love comes to you when you least expect it . You are lucky if you find love . Rather then calling my story ” Melodious Sound Of love” I might as well call it ” This is how I met My husband” .Without much ado , I shall start how it all started . NO ! I won’t drag you to the long flash back . Just a portion to show you how it all started with none other then the person responsible for my married & then the love life ( Yes ! exactly in that order )

Mom :- Why don’t you look at the pictures ?

Me :- Why ? When I just have to pick a stranger & get married to him ?

Mom :- We never stopped you .Tell us if you have anyone in your mind . I will talk to your dad .

Me:- ( Now completely irritated ) No Mom ! That’s not what I meant . I was…Just forget it.

Mom :- But you have to get married beta . Don’t you . I am keeping the pictures here .Just have a glance . For my sake .

And she left the room . ” For my sake ” is always her last resort . I always had to give in . I reluctantly picked the first  photograph at the top of the pile  & put it back immediately .

Melodious Sound Of Love

” Yet another Mr. Marry-Me-I-Earn-A-Lot.” I thought in my mind . Few days passed . His family was constantly in touch to take the things further. He was coming to Jaipur for a family function . Both our families decided for a formal meeting at a plush restaurant. All went well . Our families liked each other , he looked positive ( while I busy putting up the act of being a coy girl ) . The waiters were overtly courteous expecting a good tip in case the ‘Talks’ ended on a positive note . Every one seemed happy & I was confused .

Later at home my mother asked me if I liked the boy .

” He looked Ok. Decent . He wasn’t talking much.”

” We all liked him . Such a nice boy & what a family. Simple & cultured . Isn’t it ”

” YA right .” Saying that I went to my room as I was dying to jump out of that 6 yards since last 2 hours 39 minutes & 15 seconds . ( I was literally counting seconds to get back home & do away with that annoying sari ) .

What transpired in next one hour was unbelievable. My dad called up his father saying that ‘I Liked the boy ‘ & fixed the next meeting for formalizing the match. When I was informed about the progress , I went into a frenzy.

” How ? Whats wrong with you people ? We just met . I don’t know him . How can you just fix me up ! ” I was furious.

My father , who is a man of few words said ” You will have to get married one day .This is how matches are made . Tell me whats wrong with the boy ? ”

” Nothing wrong but …” I was cut short by his declaration.

” Nothing wrong then we are meeting those people on weekend . Don’t make any plans .”

” OMG ! Am I really getting married to a stranger . ” I shrieked in my room .

The following weekend our families met & we two were engaged with a formal ‘roka ‘ ceremony.

Although now we were formally engaged , I some how couldn’t get a hang of the events . May be I wasn’t prepared for the marriage but as a dutiful daughter couldn’t deny  ‘ such a good rishta’ ( from my parents point of view ).

My anger unknowingly was directed towards him . I used to avoid his calls , hardly call him on my own . He still used to make efforts to strike a conversation. But here I was acting all snobbish ( Yay yay I know poor guy , snobbish girl : D ) .

Melodious Sound Of Love

After 2 months Valentine’s was coming . He was particularly kicked about it . I knew he must be planning something but I didn’t pay much heed . Just two days before valentine’s he called me . I was busy shopping with my mother .

” Where are you G ”

” I am at home .”  ( I just lied )

” Oh I thought why don’t we meet .”

” Why ? Whats the point ? I am going to be with you for rest of my life just because my parents want so ”  I thought . I simply replied ” No . Not today . One of my friend is visiting me .May be some other day.”

After a good 30 second pause he said ” Oh Ok . Never mind .Bye .”

As we were walking towards the parking lot carrying a dozen bags  my mother couldn’t see a missing tile on the pavement & had a bad fall. She couldn’t move . I was flabbergasted , I didn’t know what to do . I picked up my phone but couldn’t dial any number . Blood was gashing out of her temple & I was totally numb.

” Move . We need to take her to the hospital “. The voice sounded familiar. It was HIM. He was right there probably looking at me when I bluntly refused to meet him & lied . The situation was too much for me to handle.

” G , Just pick up your stuff & my bag too.Lets go .” He was carrying a beautifully wrapped box ( A valentine gift may be ) I acted like a robot & followed his commands . Through out the journey he neither asked a question nor asked anything about my lie. I was so embarrassed & ashamed that I wanted the ground to split open & swallow me then & there itself  .

Next day he didn’t call up nor I could muster the courage to call him & apologize . He came all the way from Mumbai to Jaipur just to spend our first valentine’s day together . And here I was,  royally ignoring him just to vent out my frustration, indecisiveness about future & anger . I did something so wrong that I will have to make it up for it , I thought. Why should he suffer without any fault of his own ?

Melodious Sound Of Love

 ( Pic taken by him on our first Valentine’s day – You make me look beautiful !)

I thought something & went out . Picked up few things from the market , arranged them as per my plan & called him .

” Hi ”

” Hi G . How is mom.”

” She is fine . Can we meet ? We need to talk .” ( SH*T . Stupid me . Why ‘ We need to talk ‘ )

” Ohk ! when.”

” Today ”

” Fine . I will come .”

I reached the venue before time ,rehearing my little act as planned . He reached the spot on time . I already booked a table for two .It was afternoon so the place was not very crowded  He was in a serious mood anticipating something adverse.

I started ” I wanted to tell you something.”

He interrupted me ” I know what you want to say . Since the beginning I could sense something was amiss. I think you are not happy with the alliance.  I think you don’t like me ”

” No No ! I mean I was not  happy but not because of you .” I thought but didn’t interrupt him.

With even more serious tone he kept going ” I know its hard for girls to say No . Don’t worry I won’t mind . You can say NO. I will understand.”

” No Silly ! I want to say YES YES YES ! I kindof started liking you .” I was thinking in my mind . By now I was enjoying his state ;) .

” I will tell my parents. I will make up something . I….” before he could finish, I interrupted him.

Melodious Sound Of Love

 

” Do you like balloons. ”

” WHat ? WHy ? ” He exclaimed

” Just tell na !”

” Yes . I do . I mean as a kid I used to .”

” Ok wait ” I got up and brought a bunch of red balloon that I brought with me earlier & kept them at the reception.

” What is this ” He was puzzled .

” I like balloons. In fact I love to burst them.”

” Ohk. But…”

Before he could complete his sentence I busted a balloon.

” Do it . Its fun.”

” Ohk. But its crazy” He was puzzled .Yet he started doing the same

As the balloons busted , little pieces of colored paper scattered all over the floor. Each had a message written on it .

” I am Sorry “

He picked up a piece & smiled at me . I was relieved . But the surprise was not yet over . It was just the starting . Music started playing at the background . His favorite song. ” Tum Jo Mil gaye ho .Toh ye lagta hai .Ye jaha mil gaye.”  ( I remembered this .He told me once. )  It was followed by a  yummilicious cake .

Melodious Sound Of Love

He face was reflecting a array of emotions . He was happy , surprised , puzzled , enjoying ,all at the same time . And needless to say I was enjoying it a lot too .

For the next phase ( and the most difficult one ) I had to get up . I bent down on my knees ( Ok ! Its too much . I know :D . I just got up ) . I held his hand .

” I know I have been behaving so wrong . Its wasn’t your fault at all. Actually I wasn’t prepared for marriage . But Now I am ,with all my heart . Please forgive me . ”

” Go on I am listening . ” Now it was his turn to play the joke on me .

” I want to say….well….will you be my valentine ? ”

” Are you proposing me ? Isn’t it a guy’s job ? ” He smiled

” Why should boys have all the fun ? ” I laughed ( I couldn’t think of any better line . This ad’s tagline came rushing in my mind .) ” So what say Mister ? ”  I asked

” Of course . By all means . Hey G ” He took out the same beautifully wrapped box from his jacket & put it across the table . ”

” I was going to gift it to you today. But as you have executed your own master plan , let me just ask you straight away . G , we never had time to get to know each other well . Now that we have found common ground , I would like to ask you . Will you marry me ? ”

Melodious Sound Of Love

 ( Proudly flaunting the ring he gifted me on our first Valentine’s Day )

” Ummm….welll…..” I paused & suddenly declared ” YES YES YES ! ”

” I Love you G ”

“Those three words sounded like a beautiful symphony.That was the moment that defined our relationship , the moment that actually brought us together. It was not planned by  anyone , nor forced upon us . It was our decision , decision our hearts took .Our souls accepted each other with all the goodness & flaws. A moment that redefined our lives & weaved our destiny together , forever ! That the sweet sound of love ! That’s LOVE .”

Happy Valentine’s day to all . Those who found love , celebrate  it & those who haven’t , you will . Very Soon :)

( This post is inspired by my real life incidence. I have taken  little creative liberty to make it interesting :) . It feels great to share my own story here.  . All beautiful memories are revived & immortalized here in the form of a story . Just Hoping he doesn’t kill me for disclosing our story to the whole world . And the fact that it was me who proposed first ;) )
