What makes life a happy story? It isn’t math where 2+2=4 and you have countless formulas to reach to your ‘one’ solution. Infact i don’t even know the definition of ‘happy’ what does it mean? Something that defines my happiness isn’t bound to define yours ,is it? Was Cindrella truely happy marrying the prince? Some say ‘yes’ others say ‘no’. Well i think only Cindrella knows and ofcourse the writer.
Anyways, here is a story i wanted to share today that i think met a happy ending..what would you think.. do comment if you want at the end. This is brother Deecha’s real life story about the girl he used to know.Before i start narrating in his own words, here is a question for you..’Do you think true love exsistS?
You remind me of a girl whom i used to know a long time ago..(she was from same ethnicity as me) That girl, i had fallen crazily in love with. I don’t know what happened then..i was blindfolded like a mad man. And just to spark a little intrest in her for me..i was willing to go through any lengths. I used to follow her around like a shadow.. everywhere,anywhere she would go, trying my best to grab any chances i could get to win her heart. But in vain,all those efforts yeilded me nothing but more frustation and desperation..
Needless to say i proposed. A number of times..ended up getting rejected heartlessly. Still, that wasn’t stopping me. For I was determined she was the one i was supposed to be with. Why was I? I don’t know. It was obvious, everyone could see she didn’t understand a thing of how i felt.. For her, i was nothing but a pampered spoilt son of a rich family. Her parents weren’t fond of me either.They had warned me to stay away from their daughter on number of ocassions. But i couldn’t. They were very strict and too controlling.
Months and a year of persistence. Finally things started setting back on place for me. I was really happy. Everything was going right for us.. till that one day, she left for kathmandu and never returned back.
I started worrying..when she didn’t show up after few days like she had promised me to. So, I came to the city myself, searching for her. I looked everywhere i possibly could but i couln’t find a trace. I wish i had stopped then because eventually what i found out much later, devastated me. She had flown off with her parents to a diffrent country, never to be back again. And not a word was said to me, about it.
I couldn’t help but feel sorry for brother Deecha then and i couldn’t believe how arrogant that lady was. This was the man who would have brought the stars and the moon to her feet( well !!) . But, what he said to me after he finished his story warmed my heart a little.
‘I wish things were different’ he said. ‘But i don’t regret a thing now. I did everything i could.’
I didn’t know ‘what love is’ then but i think i understood what he meant when he said that. ‘When you have done possibly everything to keep that one person.. yet if it still doesn’t work out, no matter how restless the heart is, it finally learns to settle in peace… ‘
The fact is, even before he shared his story firsthand to me, i had heard his mother tell her version of his story many times . She would say ‘i don’t know dear what did that girl do..Deechan was like a mind controlled puppet. He wouldn’t listen a thing i had to say. And then, when that girl disappeared he came to the city looking for her. In this place, where he knew noone and noone knew him. What did he do? How did he live?I asked him to come back many times but he wouldn’t. i was scared, worried he might do something in haste‘.
At the time, I met brother Deechan (at kathmandu ), he had a little daughter and a beautiful wife. They were a lovely couple and a happy family together. Even, how he met his wife has a story. Some people’s life are are like movies..aren’t they? Good for you, I am noosey hahha so here is what i found out.
It so happens that, his now wife had been madly in love with a boy during her high school years as well. Equally crazy, to the extent that she had cut her hands when he had refused to accept her feelings. After pursuing him what sounded like many times times, she was utterly heartbroken.
And now, here they were..two heartbroken individuals, their edges coming together to make a complete heart. So lovely together. My God bless them.
