Sorry......

  Anne was sitting in front of her PC,but had her eyes fixed on the photo frame placed on the table beside the lampshade. She was there,he was there,smiling,close to each other. Last night's quarrel kept repeating itself in her mind,every word,every phrase,every sentence.

Anne spoke to herself."let him go, let him go Anne, you don't need him, go on with your life"
She shifted her eyes to the computer screen. Opened her inbox,and then opened an already read mail. A mail from mamma...

"Dear Anne
               Theres a news.The boy I and my your papa had chosen for you has approved for you. He and his family like you.They wanna proceed. Your papa likes him too. We expect a positive reply from you too dearie. Give it a thought. And when you are done give me a call.
                                                                                                                             mamma                      "

Anne took a deep breath and reached for her cell phone....went to 'contacts'...typed 'M'...all contacts starting with 'M' started showing up. It was easy for her to find out 'Mamma'....next her thumb went up to the green button to dial....but she stopped..
She heard something....some conversation....surely from the other side of the wall...

"girl :- why didn't you say sorry???
boy :-and why didn't you??
girl :-i waited
boy :-me too.."

all silent...........only some sobs could be heard....they too fainted with time...

Anne looked at the screen of her cell phone...pressed a button...beep.... 'Mamma' was still highlighted.....she went further down...and stopped at 'Manoj'........dialed.......

The caller tune could be heard..
"zindagi do pal ki.....intezarr kab tak hum karenge bhala"

Red less

 BLACK was the colour I was born with.. and when i opened my eyes for the first time to see the colours around me,my mom said it was BROWN...my eyes were brown.......
  
Everything turned BLUE when i started walking with all four legs. discovering ice,discovering fire.......Running here and there i found GREEN...green nature,wordsworth,imagination,romanticism...........Then came the fall....YELLOW all around....dreams falling like leaves...and crushed under some feet...
Yes RED entered my life....following PINK....
You were there....deep scarlet became more red....deep..deep..deep.......

And today.....
I lay before you...... RED LESS
        
All WHITE...

HOPE

    



  
Everything was breaking down gradually. It seemed that nothing could stick the pieces back, not even with the strongest glue. Hopes seemed to scatter like the red beads of the necklace you gave, which had broken down with a random strike of your hand. Memories had started to fade….but then that afternoon….one SMS from you…

"Need 2 talk,bt no ntwrk coverage….will contact u soon.."

Stupid me, started collecting all the fragments back, into the hand drawn circle…..waited to be put back again like a jigsaw puzzle…

Eyes stuck on the screen of my dear cell phone….looking for his…”contact u soon”…..seconds flew…minutes flew…..hours, days, weeks, months…..

No soon…..no contact…..

Why?

Did you??

Bring back…….HOPE.
