Chennai Egmore – Journey 12

Mona didn’t utter any word to her father. She keep looking at Jegan. Jegan also don’t know what to say. He is also little shocked by her father words. Mona soon realizes that her father might notice her watching Jegan. So she dropped her head. Mona mother interrupted and said, 'Ur father don’t know what/where/when to talk.. Romba avasaram avarku'. Her father replied,'Oh k let us discuss this tomorrow'.

Before leaving Mona father asked Jegan to come with them but Jegan refused by giving lame reasons and he went away. Mona desperately looking Jegan for some answers, Jegan’s eyes replied 'Dont worry, everything will be ok' and Mona understood it, she just blink her eyes for a second and guise her reply. Both were separated now. Jegan was not able to move from the place, he was so confused. Everything happened and went like a Morning mist on a sunny day.

Jegan started his bike and his mind is not on the roads but some how he reached his room. He didn’t talk to any of his roommate and was quite for some time. One of his room mate asked, 'Wat happened?'. Jegan replied, 'Nothing, headache'. Jegan then immediately get out of the place and went inside the room, switched off the lights and pretended to be sleeping. Jegan friends thought he was really not well so they didn’t disturb him.

Both Jegan and Mona didn’t sleep tat night. Mona cried tat day, she felt there was no one to help her. Since no one knows she is in love with Jegan. Yes of course her case was the worst among both. Mona is more afraid of her father and all.

As these things happened on a good Friday, Both Mona and Jegan didn’t meet or chat or talk for next 2 days. Mona was with her parents on both days taking them to few places in Chennai and surroundings. Mona's mother noticed that there was something wrong with her daughter. As mother knows all the move of their children she directly asked, 'Mona, Appa partha paiyan pidikalaya?'. Mona was shocked to hear this, she was afraid of her father but more importantly she still don’t know 100 percent sure whether Jegan loves her not. Mona was silent and said, 'No'. But her mother promised her, 'If ur not interested in this marriage jus tell me, i will talk to ur father and cancel this. Don’t be afraid of ur father and don’t say yes because of him. Its ur life'.

Hearing this Mona felt little comfortable and she believed some one was there to understand her. Mona said, 'Hmmm' and put her face on her mother’s lap, that sends clear message to her mother.

Jegan was in his room for the full weekend. Didn’t go any where else, didn’t attend any calls except if it is from their parents and that too for few seconds. Even he didn’t attend his best friends calls.

Now it’s Monday which could be a life changing day for both Mona and Jegan.

Jegan entered the office first, he saw his friends both Ganesh and Aruna and immediately started telling them what happened and why he didn’t their calls. Both of them were little confused and Ganesh told, 'Hey first tell Mona about ur love, don’t think about her parents now. First confirm whether Mona loves u or not.'. Aruna also joined, ‘Yea I too agree. First tell Mona, let’s see the outcome. Don’t worry, today is the day and this is the moment. Grab it'.

All 3 searched for Mona, they went to cafeteria and to the bus drop points. They searched for sometime, they didn't find Mona anywhere. Jegan said, 'Perhaps she could be happy with what her father said. Is it?'. Ganesh replied, 'Hey fool. don’t think like tat. Call her and ask her where she is'.

Jegan took his mobile and was typing her no. while typing, Jegan got a message from Mona asking, 'U r in office only rite?'.

Jegan replied, 'Yea waiting for u only. Wer r u?'.

Mona, 'I ll reach office by 12'.

Aruna saw the first message from Mona and said, 'I m betting u she is also in love with u. her message asking “U r in office only rite”. She didn’t ask where r u and kinda things. She is asking directly. So she is in love with u.. '.

Ganesh said, 'Hmmm ponnunga ponnunga thaan.. enna research work' and he asked Jegan to come inside and stay calm and relax for some time.

Both Mona and Jegan were waiting for time to reach 12. They are feeling each and every second.

To their luck Mona reached office 15 mins earlier. She messaged Jegan and asked where he is. Jegan asked her to come in to cafeteria. As the time is 11.45 AM, only 2 to 4 people were in the cafeteria. Both Aruna and Ganesh wished Jegan Good luck.

Jegan telling himself, 'This is the moment tell it'.

Same time Mona telling herself, 'Mona u can do it, don’t worry and don’t afraid of any thing'.

Jegan saw Mona after the incident, Jegan asked Mona to take a seat. She silently took the seat offered by Jegan. Jegan seated adjacent to her.

Mona having her mobile in hand, she didn’t say any word and looking down. Jegan was holding a tumbler in his hand and didn’t say any word.

Both were in silence for few minutes. Both don’t know how to start with.

Jegan decided to break the silence, Jegan took Mona's right hand with his right hand. Mona was looking at him in much anticipation.

Jegan struggled for words and he finally said, 'Mona can I hold ur hands for my life time. Will u be with me for this life? Yes Mona I Love U. Will u accept me?'. Jegan after saying this he feels like this is the best thing ever he did in his life and he was looking at Mona.

Mona instead, these are the words she wants to tell to Jegan. She was in extreme pressure how to say this to him and she was not sure how Jegan will react to this.

Instead She didn’t tell any thing to him, she just burst in to tears and (Jegan sholderla saanchikitta)put her head in to Jegan's left shoulder and crying in satisfaction/happy.

Jegan was soooo happy , no words to explain this. His mind was freed and now he is ready to take on any one. He feels energetic; he wants to jump from building to building even he feeling to stand in front of a fast truck/against a ferocious bull.

Jegan but asked, 'Hey tell me in words mam... I don’t understand this... '.

Mona, 'Poda loosu'.

Jegan, 'Ulunga mariyathaiya pesu ini'.

Mona, 'Hmmm'.

Jegan then asked her to stop crying and said, 'u r beautiful. Life is beautiful'.

And Continued in his usual funny way, 'U will be more beautiful, if u wash ur face and come'.

Mona, 'Aiyo kadavule...' and she threw her hand bag on Jegan lap and went.

Both were so happy and Aruna and Ganesh as well. Both were watching this from some long distance. They come near Jegan place and said 'Congrats.. I told u na. We deserved a treat'.

Jegan said, 'U guys deserved more than this'. Both Jegan and Ganesh hugging each other. Jegan thanked Aruna like anything.

Mona came there and saw them at surprise. Aruna welcomed her, 'Hey Mona, thanks. Enga Jegan ah aza vidama akitta.. Sorry unga Jegana'. Aruna was laughing.

Ganesh said, 'U know from the day he meet u in train, he was killing us. Everyday he is telling Mona, mona mona'.

Jegan and Aruna Looking at him with eye brows raised. Ganesh asked thiruthirunu, 'Did I say some thing '.

Mona asked ' What' .

Aruna now started everything. Mona's face was happy at start, then happier, then happiest at last.

Both Mona and Jegan thanked Aruna and Ganesh, they ll feel like they are made for each other.

Journey continues......

Readers, I feel this is the toughest episode of all which I write till date. I tried to express Lots Of Valuable Emotions (LOVE). I would be very happy if I get comments for this, which will encourage me like anything...

Chennai Egmore – Journey Buzz !!!

Hello Readers,

Hope all are doing good. I hope many people feel romantic. This part is not about the continuation of the so far so good Journey (Thats what i feel :-)). For the last week we have received many good comments especially for the way it ended. Thanks a ton friends. Bcoz of ur support only I m writing it. Its a boost for me.. I got many questions from my friends asking:

  • When the next part ll be coming?
  • Will Jegan tell his love ?
  • Will Mona tell her love?
  • Who ll tell the love first?
  • Will they tell the love?
  • Will Mona go by her parents way?
  • Is this a love failure ?

From these questions, one thing I felt is few people were really involved with the story/Character.

FYI I ve already written the next Journey a couple of days before itself which will be posted at the earliest. I feel it has come out really well. I hope everyone ll accept it and hope few ll be disappointed. (This is a clue ;-))

But since many of my friends asked these questions, I come up with one idea. The idea is, I want to know your u feel and thoughts abt “how you would like have the up coming journeys”

Please tell u idea. I take this as an opportunity to know the expectations of the readers. Thats it, nothing else. SO PLEASE SHARE UR THOUGHTS.

Next Journey will be published this week for sure.

P.S. Romba scene podurena... :):)... Jus want to know guys.. Tats it.. Don't mistake me. This is the first story I m writing, so I m thrilled and enjoying.

Control Z – “Ctrl + Z”

When we say “Ctrl + Z”, every one who uses PC will know it. Yes its “Undo”. Especially IT people will use it countless a day

This blog is dedicated to guys and gals who work in IT. We IT guys are the ones who do an easy job. I know while reading this you will feel angry on me, even I felt the same while others said me this.

Recently me and one of my friend was having lunch in a hotel. Don’t think the big story or a flashback begins ;-). This is a small incident. While we had our lunch, a servant was carrying a plate full of juice glasses. My friend told this “see da, he has to take it very carefully, if he put these down, that’s all. Every thing is lost.”

That time, we talked that the job he does was hard. If the plate is dropped every thing is broken, he cannot do anything. But we IT guys have “Ctrl + Z” for our jobs. When there is a mistake done by us in the code, we have an option to rollback it even after is goes to production or live. No other job has it.

When a Tailor stitches a dress with different size, the tailor has no option to revert it back.

For doctors, when they do any small mistake during operation, the patient’s life may become critical.

This happens for a housewife too, when she put extra salt or sugar in any of the dish she prepares. Her husband will scold her the entire day…:-). Every husband and wife reading this will know very much about this……… I don’t need to tell anything here…….

The above few are some examples that struck my brain.

I feel our job is best …….

We should feel happy to be in this job, Thanks to “Ctrl +Z”........................

Chennai Egmore – Journey 11

Sorry guys due to some work both personally and officially (Its real, believe me), I was not able to continue with the journey. Now I m back.

For readers, we give the brief of the last journey.

“Mona came to Chennai with her parents and introduced Jegan to them. Mona’s mother got ill and Jegan helped them. Then Mona’s parents went to Vizag. Later Mona felt like Love with Jegan”

Now the journey 11 continues…..

Mona that night asking herself so many times 'Do I love him?'. Jegan told her father that Mona was her friend only. So if he knows how she was thinking what he will feel. All these were running in her mind. But she fell little confident that Jegan will accept her. She didn’t sleep properly that night. Poor girl she yet to realise that Jegan was just searching for the moment everyday. But as in the case of Jegan, I think we don’t want to tell how happy this guy will be after that incident.

Next Morning, Mona was so nervous to go to office, since the look, care, kind she will show to Jegan will be different from today and of course with special ingredient love. She has to impress Jegan. Mona also knows, she has to keep everything normal else she will be got caught. Mona decided to go to office with her best dress. But she remembered Jegan once told Kurta was his favorite women’s wear. So she decided to wear her new Kurta over her best dress. She also was thinking what Jegan will like. But she is not able to come with one. She feel little pity, that she didn’t know anything about Jegan.

Before leaving her room, she made sure she looks perfect. She boarded the bus. Her bus mate asked, 'Hey u r looking beautiful today yar. Anything special?'. Mona was very happy on hearing this, since from morning she took special care to look beautiful. She felt like she was rewarded. She replied, 'Nothing de. I feel fresh and happy this morning. Just like tat'. Her bus mate replied, 'Hmm. You look different today'. Mona, 'Oh is it so'.

Her bus mate replied, 'yea. Seems like what I said earlier will soon become reality. isn’t it?' with smile.

Mona asked, 'What, what what u said earlier?'.

Her bus mate, ' Haan, I said u will fell in love with Jegan. That seems a reality now.’

Mona deep inside she felt happy but she told her, ' No. how u say?’

Bus mate, 'Hmmm simple. Jus seeing the actions what happened last day. Do u want me to explain more on this' with winking smile.

Mona, 'No its jus a.. jus a... jus a ...friendly helppp pa.. thats it.' with little trouble in saying.

Bus mate 'Oooh. kk cool. I m jus pranking'.

Mona said, 'Hmmm I know ur tricks'.

Bus mate, 'Ohh tats better'.

The next stop is as usual at the cafeteria. She went there and she couldn’t find Jegan there instead she saw his friends Aruna and Ganesh. She went to their place.

Aruna asked, 'Hey hi. U r looking beautiful today, anything spl?'.

Mona,'hi .. Jegan didn’t come today?'. She was thinking everyone saying she is beautiful except the guy she wanted.

Ganesh, 'No he ll come. Let me guess Today is ur birthday rite?'.

Mona said, 'No u r wrong'. Ganesh replied, 'Oh is it'. Aruna said, 'Unaakku ithey polapa pochu'.

Mona asked, 'U ve any idea when Jegan ll come?'.

Aruna said, 'he ll be here shortly. U ve his mobile no. rite, u can ask him urself na.'.

Mona, 'Hmmm.. '.

Aruna and Ganesh then asked Mona about her mother, how she is doing now, when they ll be back to chennai and all this.

Mona replied to all this questions, but all this time she was looking in to her mobile, and wrist watch. Whenever someone entered cafeteria she immediately turned and looked in anticipation whether Jegan arrived or not. She simply can’t wait to see Jegan today. Meantime Mona got a call from one of her teammate, she asked Mona to come to seat since Mona is having some pending works. Mona said bye to both Aruna and Ganesh and said, 'Once Jegan comes jus tell him I m looking for him nu'.

Ganesh said, 'Yea I do'. Mona left the place with disappointment of not seeing Jegan.

Aruna asked Ganesh, 'Did u notice something?'.

Ganesh, 'Wat. I didn’t see anything'.

Aruna,'hmm. I think Mona started to feel the same way like Jegan. She kept asking question about Jegan, she was little nervous today'.

Ganesh, 'Oooh these things happened ah. Actually I was busy eating the Idly's, Pongal' ;-).

Aruna smiled and said, 'Sappattu Rama'.

Ganesh , 'Ooooi enna'. Aruna and Ganesh finished their breakfast and went to their seat.

To their surprise, they saw Jegan already came and was in his seat. Both went to his seat and asked, 'What r u doing here.. did u had ur breakfast ?'.

Jegan replied scratching his head, 'Nooo yaar. Yesterday i left earlyna.. so i ve some pending works. Boss called me yesterday. so i come early today'.

Aruna, 'Is tat over now'. Jegan, 'Almost'.

Aruna said, 'Ohh k. i ve some hot news for u. But i guess its not the rite time'.

Jegan said, 'Ooh thanks for understanding. Naan Romba busy'.

Ganesh said, 'Haan.. Its about Mona'.

Jegan, 'What what Monaa???'.

Aruna, 'Yea'. Jegan, 'Hey tell yaar'.

Aruna, 'Sir thaan romba busyah irukingale apram enna. I ll tell later'.

Jegan, 'Heeyy plz plz tell me yaar'. Ganesh smiled and said, 'Haiyo haiyo'.

Aruna, 'First finish ur pending work, I ll tell'.

Jegan replied, 'That ganesh ll do. U tell ;-)'.

Ganesh , 'Dai. Wat u think of me'. All 3 were laughing.

Jegan said, 'come on guys tell me'.

Both Ganesh and Aruna didnt say a word, jus closed their mouth and smiling at what Jegan doing.

Aruna said, 'Okk relax. I ll tell. I think Mona started to feel same like u'.

Jegan eyes wide opened and asked, 'Really!!!!!! How u r saying?'.

Aruna narrated what happened in the cafeteria. Jegan was so happy hearing and said, 'Hmm.. I guessed it'.

Aruna, 'Oooh how?'.

Jegan, 'Yesterday I and Mona went in bike'.

Aruna asked, 'Hmm. may be she thought u as friend. Why friends cant go in the same bike ah ?'.

Jegan,'Yea but '. Now its Jegan turn to narrate what happened last night.

At the end of conversation, Jegan said, 'I m gonna meet Mona now'.

Ganesh stopped him, 'Hey don’t go. Let her come and talk to u. That will be fantastic'.

Aruna, 'Hello enna thimira.. Romba Scene podathinga'.

Jegan said, 'Yea Ganesh is rite. I liked this'.

After some 1 hour, Jegan got a call from Mona. Jegan was so happy, he answered it. Mona asked, 'R u in office?'. Jegan said, 'Yep'.

Mona was little hesitant in asking a normal thing, 'Can we ve coffee?'

Jegan, 'Yep sure will come down in a minute'.

Jegan rushed to the place, he found Mona already waiting for him. Mona was having her kerchief in her hand and impatiently crushing the kerchief. She was looking like an angel in that Kurta. She simply looks stunning.

Mona said, 'Hi' and she was expecting Jegan will say something about her dress.

Jegan replied, 'Hey hi. Have your parents reached safely?'.

Mona said, 'Yea'.

Jegan asked, 'U want coffee?? '.

Mona ,'Yes'.

Jegan said, 'Ok u wait I go and get it'.

Mona, 'Hmmm'. She was little disappointed as Jegan didn’t say any word about her look.

Jegan thinking, 'Dai Jegan She look Gorgeous man.. wow'.

Jegan got couple of coffee and gave one to Mona. Mona didn’t speak. Jegan broke the silence, 'Hey anything spl today. You were ......'.

Mona , 'you were..'.

Jegan said, 'just beautiful and Gorgeous . iii
U know, I like kurtas and saree, halfsaree'.

Jegan indirectly said his desire to see Mona in that dress

Mona blushed and said, 'You are joking'.

Jegan said, 'Yea u r rite. I know'.

Mona said, 'U Idiot'.

Jegan was laughing and few minutes later Mona started laughing too. Both were started to crack funny jokes to impress one another. Jegan wanted to make her happy always and he is keen on showing his love indirectly. Mona started showing care, affection and love towards Jegan. But both don’t have the guts to express their love.

Things going like this daily, they even started to meet alone outside after office hours also in holidays. Both didn’t say express the love but both knows both were feeling like this.

In mean time Mona's Parents come from Vizag, both Jegan and Mona went to railway station to meet them. Both received them happily, Mona's Parents were happy to see them.

General talks like, how r u, how was the marriage and like were going on.

Mona's father told Mona , 'Hey mona, I met my friend in Vizag. He has one son. His name is Stephen. He is also a software engg working in US. I have seen his foto. He is looking good. My friend saw ur photo and he wants to see me not only as a friend also as a relative. Hope u got my point. What’s ur opinion?'.

On hearing this both Mona and Jegan were shell shocked.

Both were looking at each other. Mona looking helpless and saw Jegan desperately. Jegan too had nothing to say.
