PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Life it seems likes the angle 360 a little too much to my liking because seriously for anyone who says that the History doesn’t repeat itself, they better have a look at my life right now to become an eternal believer…
Hi I’m Shravan Malhotra and this is my story… Well at least a small sad slice of it…
Wondering why I am cribbing at Life? Well it’s because of the simple fact that it has brought me to the same spot where I was 10 years ago- sitting at the Gate 53 of Delhi international airport, waiting to board a flight to London. You ask what’s the big deal in that? Well let me enlighten you that both then and now I never wanted to leave in the first place! But I was forced to do so by one hard- headed girl who just couldn’t get the very simple fact that I didn’t want to leave her and go! That girl and her pig-headed stubbornness! I just can’t seem to get through her thick skull that even though I came back to India for my dad, it was all always about her because otherwise I would have stayed back like he always wished, wouldn’t have I not? No this obvious truth is so oblivious to that high and mighty Madam! Hmmpf!
And like always I’m sitting here hearing the flight announcement hoping against hope that she will call me or if her pride gives her permission maybe even use the flight ticket I gave her and join me… Hmm but wishes are like clouds aren’t they, just high flying… So just like 10 years before I head to the Gate all alone by myself with only my wishful thinking for company…
Ok now that I’m sitting in my seat still hoping she will join me, I guess to be fair, I must confess that in the meanwhile I might or might not have fought with her unnecessarily due to some stupid misunderstandings on my part as I might or might not have imagined that she liked Pushkar romantically… And might or might not have behaved like a crazy jealous boyfriend…
Err OK OK I accept I did do these stupid things and well I did get suitably bashed by both my brother and her for such stupid misgivings and I have been suitably admonished and am currently sufficiently ashamed for all the crazy crap I imagined… But don’t they say that ‘shaam ka bula jab ghar aaye use bula nahi kehthe’ and all that? Ugh seriously kids nowadays just don’t listen to proverbs! Argh my bad!
Anyway let me tell you that after such stupidity on my part I did sincerely apologize to her and it seemed liked she even forgave me, but the moment I said I needed to go back to London now that I have won her case and there was nothing left here to stop me, she just got angry and said, wait for it, “Good riddance!” Ugh I mean can you believe it?
I was hoping she would give me some clue or tell me directly that she was here and that must be reason enough for me to stay in India but instead of telling me that she was just acting as if even looking at me was a huge burden for her! Hmmpf! I don’t even know why I fell for that arrogant girl out of the whole female population in this world! Like I said to her that day, “mera dimmag to kharab hai nah!”
Hmm anyway to my utmost credit I must tell you that despite all those verbal bashing I did behave like a gentleman and said her ‘as you wish’ and left from there. Then since it’s me and it’s her we are talking about, I again went to her house yesterday to take leave from Nanaji, Daboo and other family members and just when I was leaving I went to meet her in her room because of course the princess didn’t deign to come down and meet me and I left her an envelope on her bed which she of course refused to even acknowledge!
That envelope contained the open flight ticket I had bought for her, along with my address, key and UK phone number. I know right? Seriously what was I thinking… She will never understand the gesture… She might on the contrary think I’m showing off… Ugh really this is the stupid girly novel she used to love all over again… That stupid ‘Pride and Prejudice’… Seriously Jane Austen knew girl’s mentality so well and that even after centuries they behave the same damn way… Arrgh!
My flight is taking off now and as the flight is steadily climbing up in altitude so are my hopes which are plunging to death swiftly in the inverse direction…
