Words to Remember

It was a lovely day, a special Wednesday….with a precedent us date (09-09-09). Throughout, the day….in lecture classes I wondered what destiny holds today for me. All day I kept thinking ‘Is it just a date or more than that ? ‘.

It was 5.25 PM. I was in my hostel room, sitting on my bed with a pillow at back. It was raining heavily. Fine sprinkles of water were coming inside which rejuvenated me. It was raining like we rarely get to see. I guessed it was God’s gift to celebrate 09-09-09. It had been more than an hour, I was trying to learn vocabulary Flash Cards but nothing was going into my brain. Though, I learnt a few words but as soon I moved I forgot them. Then I learnt them but this time forgot others….This kept on going.

Soon the clouds thundered loudly, I shivered a bit…Cool n ferocious wind blew all over. More water drops started coming inside. Then…what something Supernatural…..Eureka….Eureka…..urekaaa. “To make these words friends, talk to them, practically use them”. I think a strong wave of thunder and thunder stroked my mind. Still thought whats new in this….everyone says so but don’t know “where…..how…..when….what…” to use.

I gazed out, everything was fresh and green. Trees and grass were shining. It was getting little darker. Suddenly, two birds came inside my balcony seeking shelter. They were chirruping in a melodious tone. They wanted to tell me
something. I wished I could understand their language. I was trying to figure out their language. Few tones sounded
like a mixture of English, Hindi & French sounds…I tried arranging those tones. Sounds ‘A’…’el’….’yen’…’kk’…..’avv’. That was when I understood the language and grammar we use is far easier than those of birds. I tried all possible ways of arranging the sounds, enhancing them….processing them. The result I got left my eyes open and a smile on my face. “AVANTIKA…LOVE”, was what I got. It was another message from nature.

Avantika….my sweet love. I remember, date with Avantika. She bought two sets of flash cards, one for herself and another one for me, probably she wanted her boyfriend(thats of course me) to have a good vocabulary. But for months they were kept safe in my cupboard like a precious gold. Now, she could have helped me in learning these words and I was damn sure she must have learnt at least 50 percent of them.

I picked up my cell phone to call her and ask for help. Then, I stopped and thought it would be embarrassing asking girlfrnd for help. So I decided to write few lines for Avantika and give her a surprise. But mailing would be not be a good option too as she rarely checks her mail. Finally, I decided to message her and tell her how she is special to me. I quickly flipped to 6-7 flash card that I had read till that point of time and using new words I wrote a message. I added different smiles as she loves them a lot and wanted to make her feel special. (Before reading the message, have a look at meanings at the end). Message was:

Dear Avantika…

U r very an adroit n affable grl,
wth aesthetic mind. 🙂
Ur alacrity says all abt u.
No doubt u r an amiable person,
bt wn u r nt amenable it creates
bedlam n it becms a challenge to

n little more arduous, as it wld gimme
a chance to relax wnevr u r wth me for my projects.

Message sent to Avantika – 06:21:22pm 09-09-09
Message delivered.

I was sure to get a reply from her within 10 min. I anxiously waited for it. Meanwhile, rain stopped and it was all calm. The birds were silent too. Soon the cell vibrated….

Message from Avantika – 06:27:05pm 09-09-09
It was:

“Thnx…its nice…”

I smiled and replied.

“My pleasure 🙂 ”

Message sent to Avantika – 06:34:13pm 09-09-09

I was really excited after this. The sound of those two birds could be heard again. This time, I figured out what they were saying. They said, “Well Done !! God bless u and Avantika”….

09-09-09 truly proved to be a lucky and different, with adventitious things happening all over. Firstly, rarest rain…. supernatural things….God’s messages….special message to Avantika. Now, I ll wait for another rarest date in future but would be surely good in vocabulary by then….
