Thinking You

I was sitting just next to her.  She rolled her eye balls around the room before looked at me.  Suddenly she kept her sight at the file she’d brought.  She opened that file and took some of the papers out and looked from top to bottom.  She was wearing a yellow coloured salwaar. She seems to be taller even without the heels.  She kept her right leg on her left and placed the file on her lap.  We were two of the about ten people in that room looking at each other without uttering a word.  Then one of them started speaking to the near one.  And others followed suit.  I kept my mouth shut so as she.

Then, a lady came and announced some of the names.  The names were included mine as well.  I was expecting her name to be called next.  But her name wasn’t called.  I was disappointed and followed the lady as she asked us.  We were arranged each a seat with computer in front of us and asked to write some test.   I looked my left side there was a boy, Ohh disappointed again. Then I looked at my right side, I was surprised to see her sitting just next to me again to write the test along with me.

After answering some objective-type questions, we had to write a letter officially in order to test our language skills.  After typed my letter, I just looked at her computer to see what she’d written.  Oh! She’d completed her letter with ‘Thinking you’.  I was excited.  Did she mention me?  I was happy and when she accidently looked at me, I smile at her.  But she seemed to be so nervous.  I thought to calm her.  She was rechecking her letter.  I thought she wanted to see the whole letter.

After a while, that lady came and asked us to submit our names in the computer.  I was thrilled what if that lady saw the words she wrote.  It would create conflicts.  Anyway whether I get this job or not, I decided to save her.  At least I can win her heart.  After correcting one by one, the lady come to her and checked the answers and letter she’d written.  I was expecting what would happen next.  The lady started laughing after seeing the letter. 

I was confused what was happening over there. That girl was looking at everyone and her face became dull.  ‘Here I come’, I decided to be a hero to save her as she wrote those words for me.  I asked the lady why she was laughing.  I was shocked to hear saying that the girl wasn’t so good at English and she wrote ‘Thinking you’ instead of ‘Thanking you’.  Oops!



The trains was full-packed with people have no space even to breath.  I was in the middle of the crowd ensuring my space was not occupied.  We saw each other at the same time. He smiled and so did I.  But I couldn’t open any conversation with him as I was on the phone talking to someone else.

As the train was moving fast, I lost the network connection and the call.  I opened the conversation first.
‘Hi, how are you?’

‘Fine, how about you?’, he asked.


‘Where are you working now?’

‘I’m working in **********’(I'm not working for any secret agent, just for privacy)

‘He couldn’t find anyone suitable after you’d left the job’, He said.

‘Oh!’, I said………… But who?, I was so confused to whom I was talking to.

I did remember his face. But I had no clue who he was and the one, he was talking about.

He continued. ‘He hired a girl. but she was not so competent as he’d expected’

I was clueless. He must be talking about someone I knew, but my mind was searching hard to find one clue.

How is your work? and are you still working there itself?’, I asked with a hope to find any clue.

No, I left the job. Now i’m woking in ********’, (either him working for any secret agent) He said.
Which station did you get in the train?’ me
At Perambur’ he

I just continued my conversation.

It is really hard to walk to that distance to go to college’ he

Wow! he was there. I’d found afterall who he was.  I’d worked in a college as part-time. He was also working there. What a memory!


There is Hope Somewhere!

It was a hot morning in the mid summer.  I was just relaxing after finishing my regular exercises.  With the newspapers lying on the table near by the chair, I was staring at the Clock eating the time gradually.  Being not so interested in reading newspaper, my mind was blank.

Then I heard some sound that I was so used to before and didn’t hear for some time ago.  I moved my eyeballs towards the place where I heard it.  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  There were not just one or two but about five sparrows standing on the floor and eating some coconut left unused.

I was happy to see them again after a long time.  They were disappeared for the reason.  There are no trees in my area.  All were cut and built apartments.  It seems we were getting away from the real nature.  Then the sparrows flew away. Again the crows came, who were already still wandering around my house. I believe there’s hope somewhere so near!
