The first time I saw my girl, was during the third year of my Engineering. We both went to the same coaching classes for GRE preparation. She had a friendly persona. It all started with some nerdy talk regarding some mathematics which I was definitely pretty good at. Gradually we became friends but never knew that we would end up in a beautiful relationship like this.
Those were the days when testing SMS was the best mode. We started texting each other about our whereabouts. It felt good to talk to a person about just simple stuffs. “Good Morning Sunshine” and “Good Night Dear” “Catching the train now, might lose signal” “have a patient to se.. ttyl” became a usual.
Next we started meeting up some days for an evening lunch at Thane McDonalds, the usual hangout spot on the way back from our colleges. Waiting yourself or having her wait was regular. Most times she used to wait for I was not the most punctual of the guys. Initially I would say sorry, she would just smile and life was good. Gradually she would get angry(or worried as I think of it now) even if I was 5 minute late. Lot of convincing and probably a Mcchicken burger/French fries would work magic and cool her off. Maybe we were just getting too dependent on each other, but we enjoyed every tit bit of it. I knew through mutual friends that she did indeed have a soft corner for me.
Finally on October 25th after so many days of hide and seek, we texted each other about our mutual admiration. That was the first time she said “I love you”..8.38 pm 25th October..Very vivid in my mind and ‘God!! I would love to live that moment again!!’
We decided to meet the very next day, but our friends just out of nowhere joined us. No one apart from us knew what magical happened the previous day. She came in. She wore a pink salwar and just looked as beautiful as she normally does. But seeing all out friends probably got nervous( or is what she says today)….She started talking to everyone, but I noticed she could not look me in the eyes! Every time I ask her about that moment she says “sharam aa rahi thi bahut! ” with a twinkle in her eyes. Just beautiful!
Next few days were great…late night chatting, texting…locking your mobile with a passcode became a part of our lives. Probably the first time my mobile bills skyrocketed ….We shared almost everything with each other. College lectures (the one’s I attended a very few times) was all about texting about how boring the professor was!
The times we spent at McDonalds are memorable. Playing with our legs, holding hands, singing happy birthday to a complete stranger loud, she bitching about her some of her friends/teachers. It was all good! We later found an even better place to hangout..Talav(pond)pali..A small pond in the middle of the city close to our coaching class. Two problems…didn’t have Burger/French fries and the second had a lot of couples spending time. Was a bit tacky, but was fresh with air..the chai walas, bhelpuri, horse ‘thanga’s’…gave a perfect feel of Marine Drive..
We spent a lot of time there. Celebrating part of Valentine’s day, each others B’day, sharing a surprising gift once in a while eating “Monginis black forest cake” with the moon on the top(somedays) and hanging our legs from the sidewalk towards the lake…celebrating every 25th as an anniversary day..Yes! we still do that…a small gift probably or just a simple greeting card just makes up the day! Remembering those days still gives me goosebumps…
After that we started preparing for our GRE/TOEFL..documentations…my semester..her final internship etc…but still had an often meetup…used to so much look forward to those meeting. The benches on Thane station platform 1, platform 10 know us the most. Making her miss 2-3 trains so that we could spend an extra 15 minutes..and waiting till she boarded and the train was out of sight and then running for my train so that the I don’t have to explain the delay to my parents..As time continued, it was May..! and a decision was made that I would start for Fall semester and she would come for Spring…but to two different states..Me to Missouri and her to Texas. Both of us dint like it that we might be apart for so long, but could do anything.
It was August 10th , 6 days before I had to leave for the USA…we met at the same old “TalavPali”…probably one of the last times we sat there. Long-distance relationship..only being able to see her behind a glass screen on my laptop was something I never thought would happen..and then when I was just talking about this…she pulled out a gift off her bag..There was a calendar…with our pictures on it…she had some scribbling..some photos…some poems…on it…that was the instant when suddenly having to stay so far away gripped me..! (Till date…that Calendar is by far the best gift I have received..and I carry it wherever I go…its just too close to my heart)..I requested her to see me once more before I leave…
The day I left: the last day we met in 2009..she wore a rose colored salwar to the airport..she looked just as beautiful…my parents and grandparents were with me so couldn’t even hug her…with tearful eyes she said bye..the most formal bye I have ever received from her.. got into the airport…checked in my bags and the first thing I did after that was to call her and say I love you..and she replied “aj tu..however long it takes…we will be together”. The flight was the worst of it all, I was in two mind..thinking of departing from my girl and my parents.
Landed in the US after a 20 hour flight..still thinking that it might be more than 6 months atleast before I meet my Shonu again.
Days went on…we got busy with our lives. Me with my Masters and Shrad with Asian Heart institute as an intern. Calling each other through the day whenever we get time..Skyping whenever she was home..we were separated just by a simple glass and about 40,000 miles..Time went on…
It was about 5 months since we met…She started her applications for Spring Semester…got admissions into some universities..she opted to go to Texas Women’s University…Her VISA got done…and she was ready to fly. I was so eagerly waiting for this…because I knew the day was not far before I could hold her by her hands.
We were close in the same country now, but still 1000 miles far. We were both students, so dint have any means to meet each other. So we started saving small amounts. I went to California after that for my Internship. And after I was back, had made enough savings to make a visit to her.
I boarded the flight, it was more than 8 months since we meet each other. Bus from Rolla to ST Louis, St Louis to Houston, Houston to College station airport, From the airport took a ride to her house. The driver wasn’t able to find her house, so I had to ask her to come down…and there she was! Wearing a beautiful green dress, but with tears in her eyes. Can never forget that scene! We hugged and kissed…she had made some samosas and some other special things..that was probably the first time I had food made by her own hands.
I went back to Rolla, and we dint meet for close to another 8 months, when we had planned to visit India. The 20 hour journey on the flight was great. The first time we were flying together.
Completed my Masters, she came for my graduation and took one hell of photos of hers and of mine! Got a job and lucky me the job was in Texas…where she stayed. I moved from Missouri to Texas. Now the distance between us was 2 hours drives compared to about 10 hours of drive. I went to visit her quite often. Our relationship still growing leaps and bounds!.
She completed her education and the last 6 months were a part of internship. She decided to intern at a closeby medical hospital @ dallas. So we finally decided to ive-in. She found a beautiful place, with a facing lake and she moved in with me…
Life was great! She used to get up at 5.30 am, get ready by 6.30. Then wake me up with the best morning kiss. I used to drive her to work at 6.30 , come back home and sleep for an hour and then wake up, get ready and get to my work. She used to leave work early, by 4.00 catch a bus and get home. I used to get in by 6-7. By that time, dinner used to be ready!:) some of my best days were spent in that apartment. Never realized when it was already 6 months and she had her graduation ceremony. We went back to college stations, TAMU. Her grad walk went pretty well. After this, we went to a place which had a huge Aggie ring. The one shaped like a huge wedding ring, about 6 feet in radius. Probably that was when I made up my mind to propose her in a real special way. And here I am today..writing this just 3 days before proposing to you.
After her graduation and about 2 months, it was time for her to go to florida. The dreadful days of staying away from her struck me hard. But I knew, now we had the money and resources to meet up atleast once a month. I went to florida, got her settled. She got a new car and her job started. Went places too. Indianapolis, Florida, Seattle, New Orleans, Chicago, Oklahoma. She used to come visit me most of the times.
We have now been to soo many places.. Rolla, College station, Dallas, Denton, Tulsa, Seattle, Indianapolis, Orlando, Miami, Toledo, Branson, Spring field, Austin, Houston etc. and would like to go around the world with her.
I am here now, just 3 days before the proposal and still getting goosebumps of her reaction, if the proposal would be as perfect as I have seen it in my mind. Would she be absolutely surprised. But regardless, I would just like to say this “ They say..you only fall in love once, but that cant be true as everytime I look at you, I fall in love all over again..You are my bestfriend --- my shoulder to lean on,--- the one person I know --- I can count on ---- you're the love of my life --- you're my one and only,--- you ---are my everything”
I grew up in a small suburb Kalyan, Mumbai. As a kid, I was very naughty. Loved to play sports, hang out with friends, watch cricket, collect some amazing and rare songs.
Did my bachelor's of Engineeing from Datta Meghe College of Engineering and the Masters from Missouri Uiversity of Science and technology.
Met my sweetheart, Shraddha back in my college days. Today 27th of December its been 4 years, 2 months and 2 days since we first started going out.
The journey from we being good friends to beings partners of life has been very beautiful and I will make sure the future is ride is just more exciting and adventurous!
