When Cupid strikes...

He always loved watching the scenery speeding past.As any 28 year old normally would, Alok Sharma a banker by profession,loved a train travel.As he sat and thought through his life, he got back glimspes of his school days, getting scolded by teachers, admiring his english teacher's stlye adn poise,his college canteen, those theater days and doing the wheeles to impress the girls on the street. Recollecting his college days always bought a smile to his face. The boyish charm he oozed never went unnoticed by people who met him.His thoughts were interrupted by a pat on the shoulder."Son, will you read out the number on the ticket?", asked a soft voice next to him."Sure aunty, its 30.Upper berth".He instantly understood, that she will not be able to climb up, and offered to exchange his lower berth with her.

Just as he was about to climb up, was when he saw her.She looked up at the same instant.The spark was fast.Faster than the spark itself.His world suddenly stopped around him.Never had he been so attracted to a person at first sight.He so dearly wished to talk to her.But, he wondered how she would react.So pretty and sweet she looked, in the pink outfit that she wore.He thought how lovely her dark brown eyes were. The innocence in her, touched him very deeply.She stopped what she was doing and kept staring at him.Suddenly shy, her head bent low, as if searching for something for something on the floor. He took two steps ahead and she suddenly got up, and started walking away.He followed her.

She went till the door and was about to open the door of the compartment, he held her hand and pulled her back.He realised, he was holding her so tightly , that he was hurting her. Then let go.Smiled at her ,extended his hand , and said,"Hi, am Alok, whats your name?" , "Am Sunaina, and i study in 5th Standard , C Section.", said she.

Oh, I always mind. That happens to be the opposite of never mind.

The poetry on Strange was really good. Simple words and great meaning. It appears to be philosophical but i feel it's the life reality.
