‘Hello, you are Gauri, right?’
‘I need your two minutes. You know, we believe in same thing, simplicity. So I’m going to keep it simple. A lot of guys in my office are talking about you. She is cute, she is cute. Yes, you are cute. Then I checked your Facebook profile. I found that you are passionate about belly dancing. And it intrigued me. I like people who are passionate about something. I’m a writer. I work as a writer here. I also love to write poetry, short stories, shayri, and reading books. So I was saying, I would definitely like to get to know you better. Tell me if it is possible.’
‘Sorry, I’m afraid it’s not. I can’t give you my time.’
‘Cool. Nice to talk to you.’
As she turned away, I called her. ‘One more thing. I admire your dance teacher, Aliza. She is an inspirational woman. Tell her a random guy said that.’
I turned around and she called me. ‘You’re wrong.’
‘About what?’ I said.
‘About one thing in common. We have two things in common. I also think she is an inspirational woman.’
‘Yeah, of course.’
‘And I’ll tell her my friend said that.’
‘But don’t tell her I stalked her on Facebook too.’
‘I will, if you don’t accept my friend request by today.’
The crazy fact is, simplicity posses enormous power, but beliefs posses power to make impossible possible.
