Dil Chahta hain

.........One was lavender and the other was a dark blue shirt. Sunday early morning only I was able to decide which shirt to wear. Nervous?? Yes I was. Saturday night itself i had polished my shoes. Everything was planned. Just before I started my journey I rang her and informed that I shall reach bangalore SBC station at around 11 am. My train starts at 7:30 am.

Now a small flashback, in college canteen..

Ranjna: What plans for the final year seminar?
Ameen: No plans as of now.... <Suddenly idea strikes....> What about contacting someone from PES College.
Ranjna: It's in Bangalore itself and is easy for me. But I don't know anyone over there?
Ameen: I have a friend in final semester Electronics. He can arrange for visitor pass. You can search the library and may look in the archives for some interesting topics. What say?
Ranjna: That sounds good.
Ameen: This sunday I am not much occupied (As if i am busy on other weekends). I can accompany you.
Ranjna: So we will go this Sunday..

Flashback over..
Whether I was in love with Ranjna or not is altogether a different topic. But somehow I loved the moments i spent with her. I considered this as a golden chance to roam around Bangalore alongwith her. These words echoed in my mind, 'if you want something desperately, the entire universe help you to achieve it. '

I booked the tickets and saw one train slowing down at my station. I was wrong. The train was rather starting than stopping.I asked someone in the staion about the timings of my train. He showed me the moving train.

Damn!!...
Again, those words echoed in my mind, 'If you want something desperately......' Without wasting time, I started running after the train. Believe it or not, the train stopped and the train driver appreciated my dedication which forced him to stop the train...

After getting down at SBC station, I rang her as per the plan.

Ameen: Can i talk to Ranjna?
Otherside: 1 min
After some time, Ranjna: Ranjna here..
Ameen: Hei. It's I. I have reached Bangalore.
Ranjna: Sorry Ameen.. You may proceed.. We have some guests today.. I shall go and collect some other day..

Yeah... Dil bahut kuch chahta thaaa...
