Out of the blue there I met you : Part 1
This may seem interesting . It did to me at the very start though .
Have you ever realized or may be wondered what happens when suddenly out of the blue / unlooked-for you run into someone from the past . Not necessary run into but 'see' someone whom you used to know at one point in time in this life journey . What happens ?!
Well, ideally as an old saying goes 'Don't worry about the people in your past; There's a reason they didn't make it to your future' . I may somewhat agree . But , like they also say , its sad when you know someone and then suddenly you 'used to know that someone.
A similar case with me happened during one of my travels . At the airport waiting lounge ( btw : This was one of the few times when I actually availed the so called ' lounge benefit' on my credit card and I must say it was worth it ) I was busy reading one of my most admired and an exceptional author - Yashodhara Lal's new release ' There's something about you ' and sipping my coffee when all of a sudden the door opened and right next to me was someone I used to know very well .
At the very start , I was really engrossed into the book and didn't notice who went in or stepped out let apart sitting next to me. Then I hear someone speak - "New glasses ? Prada !! not bad " .
And then I was just staring at this person's eyes and vice-versa. It was a sweep , if I may call as I just kept staring at this person . It's been almost 6 years since we last met or spoke and ever since then this person was 'deleted' from my life-list as I put it.
But , right now I was clueless what to say or do. God, I was thinking has this magic was unexpectedly turning tides . In all this time I never really thought about this person and I was assuming the same from the other side.
This is something you may have faced as well . What does one talk ? It's so long that both of you are on your own and have decided to be that way . You are clueless about what is happening in that person's life , good or bad and same is the case with other one. What conversation in the world can you have or the last resort is to just wear your 'courtesy hat' say a hello and step-out.
My flight was almost an hour plus away and I am sure same was the case with that person .
You must be wondering what I said. Well , I just said - " thanks . Hope you are well " .
There is more though that happened after this .....which will come in soon....
BTW - I have my own personal FaceBook page now and may I request you to ' like' / 'comment' / 'share' , in case you like my writing or me :) .
