Perfection or Angel of Light?

It was just the other day i went to this Coffee Shop. All by myself, kind of packed, i sat down quietly in a corner. I usually entice in this habit, just like that when i feel like being on my own.
This place is usually less crowded and for some reason, it was quite unusually crowded that day.
I Asked for my Aztec coffee and slowly started drowning myself into my book, waiting for my coffee to arrive. Slowly, was this strange kind of uneasiness that started surrounding me. I looked around...and...

Amid the flood of faces that waited there,
Unsure of who they are and why I should care,
I saw her move forward, towards where i sat, through the crowd
Glancing, looking, searching ....
Her walk, was a waltz through the crowd..
As i saw her gracefully walking through the place
Her beauty was so much to take, yet so little that was seen,
For a second, i thought i had seen perfection,
But then i believed she was an angel of light.
And then she caught me by the eye, and i, like a fool, pretended to drown myself into my book.
Her face beaming as she greets me there, asking me if she could sit by me, if the place was free.
And as we talked, i saw a sudden glitter in her eye...did she glitter with my joke, i thought!
And suddenly, i see a shadow in front of me, and i look back, i saw him grabbing her.
As i turned, he held her close to him and they moved to another table, that just got free.

Anyway, i had come to have my aztec there, which arrived finally, just without the brown sugar, which was apparently out of stock. Read a couple of pages, looking intermittently at her, and finally finished my aztec. Time to go home! Amen!

The English Girl!

A woman goes to England to attend a 2-week, company training session. Her husband drives her to the airport and wishes her to have a good trip. The wife answers : "Thank you honey, what would you like me to bring for you?" The husband laughs and says, "An English girl !!!" The woman kept quiet and left. Two weeks later he picks her up in the airport and asks, "So, honey, how was the trip?" "Very good, thank you." "And, what happened to my present?" "Which present?" She asked? "The one I asked for- the English girl!!" "Oh, that" she said, "Well, I did what I could, now we have to wait a few months to see if it is a girl and if she is english!!!"

Here I am...

Here I am sitting in my office @ night… Thinking hard about life
How it changed from a maverick college life to a yucky professional life

How my tiny pocket money changed to huge monthly paychecks/Credit Cards;
but why does it give less happiness?

How a few local denim jeans changed to some new branded wardrobe;
but then why are there less people to use them?

How a single plate of samosa changed to a full 5 star Buffet;
but then, why is there less hunger?

Here I am sitting in my office @ night…
Thinking hard about life
How it changed…..

How a cycle always in reserve changed to a bike always on;
but then why are there less places to go on?

How those small coffee shops changed to coffee pubs;
but then, why don't i have the time to sip a good cup of coffee peacefully?

How, my govt operated landline number to postpaid package;
but then why are there less calls & more messages?

Here I am sitting in my office @ night…
Thinking hard about life
How it changed…..

How a 2nd class train journey changed to Flight journey;
but then why it, i have less/no time for vacations?

How an old assembled desktop changed to new MAC book;
but why am i not enjoying those video games anymore?

How a small bunch of friends changed to colleagues
but why do we always keep meeting in conference rooms?

Here I am sitting in my office @ night…
Thinking hard about life
How it changed….. How things changed……..How everything changed !!!
