I have been like one of those moonstruck cartoon characters with hearts in their eyes and bells ringing above their heads. With exactly the same response too - the girl is not interested. Sigh! Whoever (Ghalib, I think, he was) said, yeh ishq nahin aasaan (love is not easy) was absolutely spot on.
Has been the story of my life, really. Through school and college, I have had quite a few women. I wish I could end that statement there, but sometimes I let the remnants of my honesty get the better of me. What I am meaning to say is that through school and college I have had quite a few women swoon over me. Not one of them, however, was someone who I swooned over. May be Karma is finally catching up with me.
Oh I am a big believer in Karma. It is all about cause and effect. Action and reaction. You be good, and people are generally good to you. You be a mean baddy, and people are more than good to you. Such are the vagaries and travails of life. Voila! I can't remember when I last used that phrase. It is one of my favourites. Moving on.
I drove last night. Sadly, not a woman. And the car was not a fiat. It was a Honda. Whatever the Japanese have achieved in terms of technology, they have been unable to match the Italians in making engines. Anyway. Though valid, it is not the point I am trying to make here. The point is that I had to switch sides since in India we drive on the left of the road, though in select cities in the country we drive on what is left of the road. Was it difficult to mirror driving habits? Nah, not really. When in doubt follow what this globe-trotting trucker once told me, "Adjusting to different driving sides is easy. In every country, I drive bang in the middle of the road." Wise words. Do they work with women too?
The last two days have been quite workless. It is almost as if I am getting paid for being online and making blog entries. I never thought having no work can be tiring. All I am looking forward to right now is getting home, and taking a long hot soak in the tub sipping on some delicious wine. Damn, I am almost a woman!
Aside: If you love someone, should you let them go? Should you wait for them to come back or should you go after them?
