Jiyo Dil Se















‘A young executive was nervously biting her nails.’ Unable to decide between work ethics and Jiyo Dil Se attitude she chose the latter.

2 days back:
                   It was evening 7 pm on Mira's wrist watch and she has been wanting to walk up to the coffee vending machine for a break. Her day starts at 9 am in the NEOTEL call center where she works as a customer care executive. She just got over from a customer call regarding some billing issue. This was not a usual day to day call that she handles at a flick. It was a call from a person named Ankit Kaushik. Though she recognized his voice from the word 'hello' itself but her job protocol urged her to take details of his name and cellphone number to discharge her service as an executive. She wanted to scream on the phone to say she was Mira but her call sign name Mandy was mandatory as company s policy in answering query. She resolved Ankit's  issue without much hassles and gave him a reimbursement on some unjustified billing and disconnected the call by saying the rehearsed lines '' Thank you for calling NEOTEL, Have a nice day'' beep beep (call disconnected).
She made it the last call of the day and logged off. She sat on her desk thinking her life with Ankit three years back. 

3 years back:

They were the hottest couple of the college and  their friends only imagined them as happily married ever after. But fate had a different plan for them and they broke off. It was final year of the college and Ankit went to Mumbai for a month to do his internship at a renowned Multinational Compnay and there he got too close to a girl Riya Salasker. Though she was nt as beautiful as Meera but something pulled Ankit more powerfully than his fidelity for Meera. And the rest was a break-up of the hottest couple of the college. They haven't seen each other since then.

Now: 
       She had his number noted down on the Reminder pad leaf. The previous day at the office passed her thinking whether to call Ankit or not. There were a million thoughts in her mind --

* if he has married Riya and they are happily living together as a family.
* if he has realized that i was his true love and parted ways with Riya in a hope i would come back some day.
* if he has broken up with Riya too and is seeing someone else.

   Creeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek Creeeeeeeeeeeeeeek  "Stop it ! she said to her self and bitting her nails she dialed the number.

Hello ! she said.

I knew you would call. But how did you manage to hold yourself for those 2 days. I was expecting your call the moment you hanged up your office receiver that day. ..-- Ankit said with a heavy choked voice.

  4. Lovely, the saying that 'you should let go those you love, if they come back they are yours and if not, they never were' holds so valid here. A beautifully romantic post.

  6. Wonderful expressions and a gud storyline. This will definitely create more curiosity among the readers. But sometimes a small mistake from people like will have a bad impact on the readers. If m not wrong it should be Coffee Vending machine instead of mending
