Gentle!!! Part 3

This is my third post in sequel, with the title “gentle”. These posts capture some of the simple yet humble gestures of people around me, making the moment a pleasant one.

It had been more than a couple of weeks I hadn’t taken my mom out. Jayanagar is the place we often visit. She is very much fond of the tasty, crispy Masala Dosa’s at the very popular food joint, Ganesha bhavan. Today I had a chance to take her out to her favorite hang-out.

Ganesha bhavan, which is also popularly known as dose camp, is always crowded. One has to wait for ten to fifteen minutes to savor the delicious food. This eatery is always buzzing with people of all ages & culture, young & old. Today, while waiting for my order to be served, I saw a beautiful girl. She was very charmingly clad in a stunning green silk saree. She was dressed to perfection. Her cute eyes were so attractive. Her glossy red lips elegantly matched the border color of her saree. She looked so gorgeous.

She was waiting for her take away order to be served, which took quite more time than usual, since the queue was longer. As the moments passed by, I noticed another woman walking up to her & without conversing a word, helped that gorgeous lady to set her pallu in a right way. Later I realized that the strap of her inner wear was slightly visible near her shoulder back. The lady, with a smile, whispered thank you to the one who helped her.

I noticed two great qualities in that woman. One was her respect towards other females. I am pretty sure there were many other women who might have noticed it, but did not have the courage to set it right. The other was her humble way of expression. She made it look so simple that the gorgeous lady did not feel embarrassed in front of others. Just great!

Smile is indeed a beautiful gesture.

Weddings are the ones where, of course, a couple begin their new phase of life, but also, weddings are the ones where friends reunite. People who stay far away from their childhood buddies or their college friends, get a chance to catch up with them. Undoubtedly, the recent advertisement which says "waise har ek friend zaroori hota hai (every friend is important)" is absolutely true.

Recently, my high school friend's wedding helped me meet some of the buddies whom i had not met for a long time. Not so surprisingly, all of us became very Nostalgic. Hours were spent remembering our school days. Each & every moment was still so fresh in our memories. All of us expressed one wish, wish we get back those days!

I always keep thinking if i wake up one fine day & find myself having gone back a reasonable amount of time. I wish i get back my school days, to be with the same bunch of friends. I also wish one day i meet a magician, who can make my wish come true.
