Paheli is her name. Just like what her name means, she is a puzzle too.
I haven’t interacted much with her. But, it was her voice that I listen to, everyday. Those conversations which I overheard uncontrollably talked a lot about her. She seemed fun loving and on the go woman.
She got married just a few weeks ago. I am very happy for her and I wish her all well.
Today was the last I could meet her. She was relocating and a new place to start an exciting life.
Before her leaving, I wanted to sing for her. After all she meant so much. I went to her and said, ‘I’ll sing a two line for you before bid farewell.’
And I sang, ‘Tera mujhse h pehle ka naata koi, yoon hi nahi dil lubhata koi…Jaane tu..ya Jaane Na.’
I could see her smile. She was beaming with joy, her teeth were a proof of that. She reminded me of how she still remembers the lines I first spoke to her.
Man, that felt special. That felt like she actually cared for what I spoke to her. She did observe all the tiny details that we shared.
Kudos to such awesomeness and longing for many such happy relationships.
