Vindhya was sipping hot cup of coffee on her desk. She was reading a quarterly report of her company. As she finished, she glanced at the debt market desk opposite to her. She cannot see him. She was yearning and longing for his eyes, innocuous smile and seductive charm. She was searching for those eyes since one week. It had been a long wait though.
Vindhya was an introvert, shy, pretty young lady. She dressed up in a traditional style with Kurti and salwar with nicely braided long hair. She had a finance masters in hand and was working as an Analyst in a financial services firm. Her co workers liked her not only because of the way she looked but also the way she spoke, behaved and her whole nature. She was a quick learner and efficient at work.
Ameesh was a Debt market dealer in the same company. He was a reserved person and never mixed with people around. He had a fixed set of 3-4 friends whom he used to hang out with.
It had been six months. Vindhya and Ameesh were attracted to each other but never ever tried to share their feelings with each other. She used to see him and he used to reciprocate her by looking at her. There had been times when both of them were alone in the library but Ameesh never tried to speak to her nor Vindhya volunteered but the gaze itself was speaking a lot.
Vindhya wondered why Ameesh never made an effort to know her name and her details.
When Vindhya controlled herself and looked him from the corner of her eyes, she could see Ameesh gazing at her and smiling at her.
She tried to find his name and details. She got his credentials in the linkedIn, professional networking site. She quickly sent a request to connect to his network. She waited to get an acceptance from his side but it did not work. She overlooked his gaze and tried to concentrate on her own work as she was not interested to get into a relationship. She had a bad breakup with her ex boyfriend and as her parents were looking for her marriage, she dismissed these thoughts. But she was desperate to know his feelings or what he thought about her?
There was a cultural night in the company. Company had organized for a Music band show. Show had begun and the singer started with the romantic track sung by Abhijeet Sawant – “Lafzon mein keh na sakun, Bin keh bi reh na sakun, “Knowingly or unknowingly Singer touched the hearts of two lives – Vindhya and Ameesh. They were lost into each other and spoke a lot by giving an intense look towards each other.
Now it had been one long week and he still not have turned at the workplace. What happened to him? Has he quit? Or maybe he was on leave. The wait made her impatient. Though she was a headstrong and obstinate person, she couldn’t resist thinking about him.
“Speak softly, but not as soft that I cannot listen
Say something that your intense gaze has got a reason”
(This story depicts how two hearts have been connected through the eyes. And also this is the perfect example of the challenges faced by not communicating the emotions and feelings. Agreed, Love doesn’t need a language and it has got its own. But the feelings should be conveyed before it gets late as unspoken love loses its value. So speak out, convey and reciprocate your love. Only you will face rejection but at least you have made an effort to know other person’s mind. Of course, You don’t have to be another Vindhya waiting for someone to turn back)
