Love in the age of Technology

On Parish Island off the cost of Virginia there is a company called Blue Chip. This company deals in all software and hardware and all things related to computers.

Several hundred of people work here. Among them is a software engineer Rohit, who iss very tall dark and handsome and about 30 years of age. He works in this company and was a very good worker. He does not talk much but is the idol for all the women that worked for Blue Chip.

Anna, was also a software engineering who has recently joined the company, she has come from Bangalore in India. She is a very friendly young lady. Since she was new she was taken around and was introduced to all the staff by her Manager.

Anna was introduced to Rohit as they were to make team and work together on a given project. She found him to be a very cool calm person. He spoke very less and worked very hard. Anna noticed that he rarely spoke to her unless required. It was one of those days when they had to work late. Anna was tired of constantly sit…

We met as strangers,
then we fell in love,
was it too soon,
we parted and went our ways.

I was hurt, was he,
I never knew,
we get married,
same year, same month, same week,
but to another.

Life goes one,
and one day I see an
email from him,
my heart skips a beat,
I am angry, but I want to take revenge,
But can I do it , will I do it.

I learn,
he is still in my life
by his brother marrying,
another relative in my family.

Now he is back in my life,
seems he cannot forget me,
and nor can I ,
are we doing wrong.,
is this love?
Can anyone tell,
or this hate/love for each other!

To Him

I remember the first time I met you
I never thought you'd be the one
Who'd take my heart away
I even thought you were bad & strange
But seems I've been wrong anyway

Then my feelings grew for you
I liked you, I did’nt even know why
Maybe because you're sweet
You knew how to care about me
When I was feeling lonely
You were there to let me feel your warmth

You knew what to say
When I was troubled and confused
you were able to see me
through my letters and
You wrote such sweet letters to me.

Now I loved you
And this feeling became deeper than I imagined
I wanted to tell you how much I love you
How much I care for you, how much I need you
But alas it was too late,
For your heart was already tied to hers

If, I was brave enough that time
to tell you all these before you met her
would something have changed?
Would you have loved me?
in just the way I love you.

But it was just another heartbreak? :)

Nisha and Anirudh - Part II

They arrived in Switzerland early morning and went straight to be, due to the time difference, they suffered from a jet lag.

Later in the day when they woke up, they had a good brunch and went on a sight seeing spree. They spent a week there and had to return back to home base.

Back home in Shimla was a new beginning for them both. Ani had bought a beautiful house and had it all ready for his lady love. Two months passed by quicker than ever and Ani had to go back to his work. Nisha was not happy as she would have to be alone, but Ani promised to take her too once he went there.

That week was very busy one a lot of guest and relatives came for dinners, lunch etc as Ani was leaving and also to welcome the new couple. Nisha used to get very tired by the end of the day and would fall of a sleep lie a little baby. The next day early morning was his flight. Nisha was not a mood and did not feel like talking to anybody. Ani tried to console her and tell her that he promised to take her …

Nisha and Anirudh Part 1 - Short Story

Nisha and Anirudh were childhood friends. They were both born and brought up in Simla. It is a very beautiful place to the North of India. They were neighbors and always went to school, studied and played together. Their families always got together on weekends and even went on holidays together.

Time flew by they both finished school and joined college, but their streams were different. He chose to join Commerce while she joined Arts. They did from time to time meet when on a day off.

Life changed, Nisha lost her dad and she now had more responsibility, she was the eldest of the four children and she decided to do Night College and work in the day. It was very hard for them as the younger sibling were still in school and college. Her mother was always a housewife and so could not go to work, but she would sit and at home and do some tailoring work that she would get from time to time. They had move from their house to a smaller place, she was sad to bid farewell to her neighbo…

The Cat was big..
His whiskers were like Twigs,
I thought and I thought and I thought in vain,
And then I let the cat go in the lane.

It scared the folks living there
for they ran helter skelter,
bumping into everything that came their way.
Alas, he was not after the folks,
but after his master who let him loose.
Bark and a yap
that what he does
the whole day long
Frighten's every stranger
that passes along.
He is but a lovely pal
with little kids
and an eye for the blind
but above all
my best friend
and my bodyguard.


You missing mommy,
and I am missing him.
Lets get together and chat
and forget our loved
ones while they are far away.

Turn on the music,
get the gin and the vodka,
call up a friend
and make the best of your weekend
Happy weekend!

OOps!
Ma and Pa sat in a car
And went to the bar
They drank from a jar
Then got back into their car
And drove to the park
They sat in the dark
And were lost in the park
Only to be woken next morning
With the singing of the Lark!

Anu if the wheels are turning around
Hurry dont let it stop
for if you do
This thread will stop
And no more wheels turning around

T'was birthday time
so Anu forgot
that her wheels were turning around
Enough of cake and wine
Music and dancing - and
Come back to this thread

That is what is left to do
You and me enjoy this thread
With a bottle if Fizz
And corn on the cob
I am continuing on this thread

Seems all are asleep
Or lazing on the bed
As its sunday afternoon - and
to early to play
on this thread.
So, early did I wake the
dead from sleep or the lazy
You sound so sad and dejected
You are home sick
so get back to base
And bring the smile back on your face.


We'll take it from there
As there is too many mixers happening
On Nukkad these days
Too much of wine and dine
And all people's a knockout
the next day!

There'll be more than just dancing
There'll be laughing and prancing
And eating and drinking
And back pats and winking


Yeah! there will be romancing too!
As Love is sailing in the air
You and me will be there
For the weather is fair
And love and music in the everywhere.

The colored paper is bought
And the kite is made
But whose gonna fly it first
As there's dust storm coming up.


Lets make a hot air balloon
instead
So you can fly in that balloon
Against the dust storm
and dusty air.
Until one finds a better suggestion for you and me
Lets take to the sea
Sail away on a cruise
Into the Arabian sea
You and me and all folks on Nukkad

A big liner will it be
The cost has to be free
For we'll find a big Don here
And make him sponsor our trip for all
to be free
The trip sure sounds like fun
Cmon,Cmon, where are you Don?
Wanna get away from this soaring Sun
Now,be sweet and stop being such a CON ;)

Yes back online is where we are
To spend good times with friends afar
But when the Bell of Duty rings
We must log off and see to things :(


But Nukkad is such a place
that when you have a couple of minutes
You come back to spend that time here
and keep in touch with the folks on line


So folks lets make the best of this
time we have on Nukkad
Enjoy every moment we spend
By making more firends and
lesser enemies
Lets together make a chain of Friendship.

Come folks
join me on the Ship of Nukkad
And sail on the sea of Friendship
Lets together dock on the shore of
enemies if any
And make them all friends of Nukkad.

The friendship wand I can see from afar
Lets welcome the ship as they dock
The welcome band is ready & champagne a flow
Hurry folks,
Its happy moment for you and me !


Lapsi gets more but when he

The folks are busy ashore
Eating and drinking
and having fun galore.

But soon my eyes begin to tear
It's the truck's exhaust I do fear
I thought they'd make good morning friends
But this is where my story ebds

The highways too busy
For a friend in need
Its a foggy morning
So lets keep our eyes on the road
Ahead,
for there are friends waiting for you on
Nukkad.


Nukkad I reached in time
To have a lovely cup of coffee
And chat with the friends on line
Got the latest gossip - that
Don, Inez,Asha are back on line

I am waiting for you,
Please come back to me
Or I will fade away
Like the colour on the wall.,
Like the flowers in the vase.
Come back, oh come back to me and brighten my day.

dont tell me that because of work
you have forgotten me
that I am second thoughts for you
you assured me that I am the only one for you
And that you will never let me down.

You are the only one my dear
But we must eat as well
I'd like to see much more of you
But the Boss will give me Hell!

And if the Boss gives me hell,
It's not good for me
As I would out of job
And that is real hell


So come dear, bear with me
Tomorrow is another day
And we will surely meet
Like we do every Sunday.

So thank you my Love for being there,
For supporting me, my life
I'll do the same for you, you know,
YOUR LOVE, is the ultimate.

I have found a true love in you
Cos’ life without you dear friend
is a life of emptiness!
Its like a boat without a sail
and a day without the night

I remember the day you said good-bye
I laid my head on my pillow and cried
left all alone again left in the dark
my only friend
its really something this love I have for you
is never ending

I maybe an Amateur
In writing a verse or two
But in a language of my own
I’d like to get the message across
Some may like it ,and some may contradict it,
But as long as I can get the message across
It makes no big difference to me.


A stranger you were once.
There's nothing as nice as someone who shares,
your laughter, your secrets, your wishes and cares,
someone who's there through your good times and tears,
who stays by your side as your friend through the years

A Stranger as A friend?

People ask me often,
"How can you be friends
with someone you've never met?"

I tell them,
" You've never been online I am sure!"

It's something people offline will never understand.
You open up your heart to friendship
with your fingers typing away fast.

It's a world full friendship at your finger tips,
there is so much online,and
it only takes a heart to reach people
with your touch.

First you start out online, surfing all around.
Next thing you know a great friend will be found.

You will chat a lot and surf a lot.
Soon it will be your second home,
a comforting, and special place.

You will find a
Friend to share your dreams and your tears
and to help each other wipe away life's fears.

You will share life together
and help each other along
You will make it through bad weather
because friendship is so strong.

No matter how far apart you go,
your keyboards will keep you together,
and in your heart you will know
you don't need a face to be a true friend forever.

So, H…

The Rain

As the hot May winds blows through my hair,
Its sends a chill down my spine,
Leaves fall from the trees,
and the wind comes with heavy dark clouds

I see dark clouds,
and a gray sky
then a streak of lightening,
followed by
thunder clashes,
as lightening flashes
a storm rolls in,

The gentle cadence of falling rain
Its soft pelt splashing
upon the window pane
makes my heart miss a beat.

The golden sun is hidden away
with the gray clouds,
the rain falls on the earth,
like cyrstals falling from heaven above.

Making the earth so wet,
and the earth smelling so sweet.
Everything around turns wet and cold
And yet the rain is welcome on this
hot summers day!

Missing Him

Its been a few days since he's gone

And I have already begun to miss him

As I sit by window and watch the sun setting,

My mind begins to wander

Of the lovely days that we spent together on chat

I miss him every single day

Why is this happenig to me!

I find no interest in my day to day work
Is this called infactuation!

He is only a friend to me

Is it because we share the most intimate chats,

Is it because we share our lifes on chat,

His absence is driving me crazy

Can anyone tell me why?

He told me that she is aware.

That we are chatting and does not care

He wants us to stay friends forever

He's been happy being friends....till now

Love is A movement

I found my old scrap book and in it dated 27/01/1990 I had written:

Love is movement
In which you have a Master menu

Every move you make and step you take
Enters the stock file of your life।
You stock file all the movements
And then one day analyse its mistake
You correct & delete every fault,
and then when the bad times over
You let your love friend te another
Option of friend pice from your life।
Once again you accept a new life
And when finally all ifriend well
You end that movement of your Love life,
by joining together in Holy Matrimony
And another new movemnt if your
Love Life has begun।

Blessed are they that join together in holy matrimony!

Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.
Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.
Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors.
Careers end.
BUT - Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles
are between you. A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her.
When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by
yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering
you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf,
and waiting with open arms at the valley's end.
Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you, or
come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters,
sisters-in-law, mothers, grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins and
extended family all bless our life.

Its been a few days since he's gone
And I have already begun to miss him
As I sit by window and watch the sun setting,
My mind begins to wander
Of the lovely days that we spent together on chat
I miss him every single day .

Why is this happenig to me!
I find no interest in my day to day work.
Is this called infactuation!
He is only a friend to me.
Is it because we share the mostintimate chats,
Is it because we share our lifes on chat,
His absence is driving me crazy.

Can anyone tell me why?
He told me that she is aware,
That we are chatting and does not care.
He wants us to stay friends forever
He's been happy being friends....till now

You said I will never leave you,for another -
but you did

And stand speechless all alone - so

And when my heart breaks

When no shoulder to cry on
With my tears

My imaginations run wild
Have no control on it
So

Pick up the newspaper to read
But find it better to reply So

A break away from home

We were just friends, he said hey since you and I needed this break then why don’t we go away together. It was then we decided we needed a break away from home. , but where to go what to do and whom shall we go with came the next question. We both asked each other at the same time “Why don’t we go together”?So we decided to go up north where there is a lovely place with the river flowing and the mountain in the back drop was just the place we would like to be. So the next weekend off we went, he drove me as I don’t drive. It was a two hour drive so we started early in the morning so that we don’t get too much sun and could reach the place by mid morning. We were rather quite and guess each lost in our own world. But all of a sudden he turned to me and said hey what are you thinking and it was that instant when I too turned and asked him the same question. Funny but we both smiled at one another and said nothing. We spoke for sometime and again the silence fell and we were again lost i…

Lost Love Found Again - Part II

The following week she left for her aunt house in Bombay. Her aunt was surprised to see her and how she had become so quite. She would just sit in the balcony and stare at the road down and not talk to anyone unless spoken too. Days, weeks and months passed by, she would take a book to read or just write. She became a very emotional and sensitive girl and started hating men in general. Her aunt tried to send her to college but she kind of refused. She would see her cousins going, but was not very keen, then one day it so happened that she just decided that she wanted to go back to college, her aunt was very happy and got her admission with the other cousins. She told her niece that this time she must be more careful as to whom she chooses as a friend as there are many boys in the college, and gave her some advice, with a smile on her face, she told her aunt “don’t worry I hate all men and to shy to be bitten by another love bug.

Lost Love Found Again - Part I

She had just finished with high school and was planning to join college.
She was a very quiet girl and was brought up by her grandmother. She was very simple and shy and always kept to her work and her hobbies. She used to collect coins, stamps, cartoons characters, and all sorts of nick knacks that were of interest to her. She had a good collection of novels too as she loved reading.

It was one of those days when she was busy sorting out her stamps when
