Ad wars – we love them, don’t we? We loved it when Coke and Pepsi done that, we loved it when Kit-Kat and Oreo bashed together during Superbowl and now it is getting hotter in India.
It is Munch vs Perk now in India. Perk started it and Munch blowed it back, this time heavy.
Perk Declares War
Cadbury’s Perk recently came up with an ad that ridiculed Munch for its light weight chocolate and very…
I just wanted a love and i never got it. Now, i started to hate love.
I was very worried, that I might hear her saying no to my love. And then I posted my heart out in Facebook for only her eyes. She might have seen it or she might not. But then from that day she was not as friendly as before.
She was not responding properly. First time I called her and she didn’t picked up and told me a reason. The second time I called her, she didn’t picked up and told me another reason. I was very hurt. She was ignoring me. Then she even stopped messaging me. I asked her the reason. She doesn’t replied to that yet.
It is very hurting that she is not talking to me. And more hurting, for I know not the reason why she is not talking with me.
This may be the end… And it is hurting…
Oru mani aachu,
Kuliroda ithamaga un ninappu…
En chinna manasu,
nee mattum pothum pulla athukku…
ena solli enna pulla,
nee than en kuda inga illa…
ena solli enna pulla,
nee mattum than en manasukulla…
I can’t sleep. It’s because of her, I want her now. She is in full in my heart.
Yeah she said she doesn’t have any boy friend, and that was enough. But then these last four days I haven’t done anything. I was like thinking about her all the time. And this is not good, I have a lakshya, I have an aim, I wanted to make this magazine business profitable. I wanted to clear my family loan. If I love her, I am afraid I can’t do all that. I am already lagging behind my personal targets.
Some stories end, before it even starts…
And it is good that it happens so soon,
So that there is not much sadness as it ends so soon…
I wanted to end this all, I don’t want to risk my career, I don’t want to hear her telling me that she doesn’t love me. And so I don’t want to love her…
The first day we were chatted like full 2 hours in facebook. And it’s been three days and I’ve been chatting with her for like most of the time. I want to meet her in person, I want to see her. But then she was in Kerala and I am in Coimbatore. Four hours away, if only I don’t have magazine works I would be there.
Today is the fourth day of chatting with her. She was gorgeous, not only in person, in words too. We were talking about our career, our love for pets, and lots of things. To know whether she is free or already in relationship, I asked her “What are the gifts you are going to give for your boy friend? I am going to write an valentines day special article in the magazine… and it will help me”.
She suddenly gave me a list partly confirming that she have a boy friend. This was happened in the second day of chatting. This hurts me. But may be she took it in the sense of “if she has boy friend she will gift those”. But I don’t want to take it further. I don’t want to sound desperate.
The third day, January 15, Wednesday, we were sharing our portfolios. Like she is designing sarees and I design t shirts and we shared the photos of our designs complementing each other. Then she shared her decorations that she shopped and installed that day. I felt like she too was on to me and that’s why she share these personal details.
But in the back of the mind, her ‘boy friend’ thing was running. That worrying me a lot.
In the evening, I was watching ‘Vinnai Thandi Vauvaya’ and even thought of going to Kerala to see her. I posted about the movie and how I feel about the movie and she liked the post. And added to that she liked my current dp too…
Oh God!, is she stalking me???
The next day, that is today, I wanted to ask her about her boy friend, I don’t know how to ask her. I was chatting her from the morning. I got an idea through my friend Naveen. I asked her about her parents and then dragged on whether they are going to marry her off after her MBA?.
She told that she wanted to work and will work at least for 2 years. Superb…
So now the difficulty level arises, I asked her, “Is your boy friend ok with this?”
She said, “No I don’t have any”
I was in cloud nine. I am the happiest man in the world as of now. This is enough for me. Not enough but her having boy friend already is a worse situation than now. So Prince is happy.
At that moment, I thought, may be this is a omen, you must forget her. You won’t get her…
I was lost in my thoughts, and then I finished my Coffee and this time paid the bill boss. I was smiling while paying the bill. And then I was coming out, my eyes goes towards two girls sitting in that cafe, I ignored them as I was already lost in my thoughts. Then it strikes me instantly that it was Chinnu and her friend. What an idiot I am, they were there literally, may be they gone to some other place and returned to the Cafe. And I was dreaming without seeing them, I was walking slowly now, i can’t stop and looking at her. It will make me look like an Idiot. But the two girls smiled at me, may be they recognized me or they are running some jokes on me!!!
Our mind works in mysterious ways, when others are smiling gossiping we think it was us they are smiling about. That may be true, but not always… I don’t know what it is in my case…
Every time, I thought of talking to her, see through her eyes or just to stay in her presence, my previous failures strikes me. I don’t want to embarrass again, I don’t want to hear those words again :’( .
I started my bike and got as far as possible in my bike and stopped at a place of complete isolation and cried and cried until I feel like going to my room. I don’t want to see her again, I don’t want to love again. Or it is all I wanted…
I always feel facebook is the greatest innovation of this decade. It gives a new dimension to the social networking. I can meet my all my friends there and chat with them virtually. I can connect and brand my business with the exact target segment. I am spending my life in Facebook at least five hours a day. I run my business through Facebook, I brand my business, I brand me through Facebook. It even helped me to get PR. I was featured in almost all the dailies in the region when I launched CHO- Coimbatore Hangouts, a regional magazine for Coimbatore. The Hindu wrote about us, The Deccan Chronicle did and now The New Indian Express did. And the Facebook, the ultimate media, helps me to reach more people. Almost 50% of the people who are in Facebook from Coimbatore knows me or at least my Magazine.
And along with that I have been able to crack the social media marketing and also consulting on the same to the amateurs.
I added Chinnu as a friend as soon as I saw her in the fancy dress. She rejected the friend request the first time, but I made my second attempt and she accepted me.
I made use of “graph search” in facebook on every dimension to know more about Chinnu. I downloaded all her photos in my laptop and view it at least one time a day. I was literally stalking her. But rarely like her posts or comment on it. I do not want her to know that I was after her. You may have already detected I am a introvert through whatever I said as of now. If not no probs, I am an introvert and I don’t talk much or often. I am bit shy too…
So when life is going this way, I was more desperate to talk to her. I was dreaming about her all the time, not all the time, but whenever my mind was free from my works and business, it was her…
I made a step forward on January 13, 2014. It was a week full of holidays for us as it is Pongal. It was a wonderful night and I was reading Nicholas Sparks, I feel so lonely and desperate. I saw her in my facebook chat window. The last time I tried, she is not replying. But I am not in a mood to listen to my mind, my heart is already won. I typed hi and send it to her at 9.45 pm.
I was waiting for her reply and there isn’t any. “I told you” my mind said. I don’t want to complain though, so I left it there. At about 11.48 I heard a ping in fb chat. I know it was her, I opened it fast, my heart was racing. It was her and she replied with hi and how r u.
What started of as a small chat, it was growing and growing, and she was good. I imagined her with the smileys she sent and she looked beautiful and kinda cute in all.
And while chatting I asked her that whether she knows me? She said “Ya….from caramel wid sental” with lots of funny smileys. It looks like she was blushing. It was kinda embarrassing me though, of all the moments she remembered the worst one…
Then we talked about our career, she told that she was looking for a job in HR after MBA. I proudly remarked “you can join mine, we are a start up but it will be a best working and learning platform for you”.
The first time I saw her was when she was in some fancy dress in a food festival, before going on ALPS training to Anaikatti. She was very cute and the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. She was very friendly. I was not in a mood to approach her, for I know I can never even get her at least to a level of a friend.
I just can’t take her from out of my mind. And then I decided to forget her completely by involving with all other things. I was successful in this attempt.
Then, I would see her in college or the caramel cafe, that is nearest to the college. In the meantime, I fell in love with another girl, who I thought would be my soul mate and understands me, then all of a sudden she told me that she is already engaged. And that is the second blow in my love life.
The earlier one happened in my school days, where there is this wonderful girl named Thaen Mozhi, she was the best girl I know of, at that time, other than my mother. She was very good to me, but then she fell in love with the bad guy, and she doesn’t listened to me. That was the first blow. I never been kind to any other girl after that.
I hated love after these two blows. I was very much depressed. My age is 24 and I never got a true love in all this 24 years. My friends were like playing with the word love, they are not true in their love. But girls choose them over boys like me.
May be I am a bit fat, may be I am not as handsome as a guy in six packs. But I always felt I am the world’s greatest lover and a best good guy.
And if you are wondering, who is this guy, and why he is saying all this?
I am Prince, 24 years old boy, budding entrepreneur, who seeks the love of his life. And the problem is still I didn’t find it yet…
So after two love failures, I am still seeking for a heart. That’s where the girl I first talked about came. Her name is, let’s just say Chinnu for now.
One fine day, I think back a month, I was riding in a bike, and slowed it for my friend who came across to say hi. I saw her, may be it was a co-incidence, she just saw me and smiled.
“I never know I would see you today, And
When our eyes met, they burned through my soul.
It’s a second that seems to be an hour to me…
I relish that feeling every second after that second,
who are you? and why am I?”
I was lost again to her. I never can forget that one moment. When I was writing the above poem on my mind I crossed half a km, I then turned the wheel. I can’t find her, but, I know where she is heading. The Caramel Cafe. I used to see her there.
And there was this one moment that makes me smile whenever I was in that cafe.
One day, me and my friend Sentel go to that cafe and she was there. He was a good friend of her and he took me to the seat where she was seated. Oh God! she was very cute, pretty. He started talking to her forgetting about me. I ordered a Coffee and a Puff. I listened to her speaking and her smile, she smiles often and it was cute. I was enchanted through her smile. I controlled myself, not to smile or talk to her. That was just about the time I received the second blow. And I didn’t wanted it to happen again. I was lost there. I was not in the world where I am doing my MBA, and I am here with my friend in a Cafe. I was in a alternative world, where I was a Prince seeking a Princess, and he met her in a Utopian type Cafe. I have many things to say to her in my mind that refused to get out of my mouth.
So, when I was getting out of the Cafe, I do what the Princes usually do, I didn’t pay, neither did my friend, because I was the one who asked him out for a cafe on our way to hostel. It is since my treat. And I didn’t paid. We realized it like after 20 mins, and the worst fear in my mind is that she is in the same table with us, what if these Cafe guys charged her with our bill too…
What she will think of us, when I was thinking all this, this Sentel idiot called her and told about the incident. She replied that she paid only for her coffee and came out.She was laughing out loud and said “You guys!!!, my good time, they doesn’t caught me when I am going out and shouted at me… “
I was remembering all this when I was going to that cafe in my bike very slowly. When I reached there, I didn’t find them, them means she was with her friend. I looked at the whole cafe and she wasn’t there. I then took up a seat in a corner and had a Coffee, I do like Coffees a lot, I take at least 2 Coffees a day. At that moment, I thought, may be this is a omen, you must forget her. You won’t get her…
