It was Friday evening; Rehaan was waiting for his bus to return back to his residence. After few minutes, a bus full of passengers arrived, Rehaan managed to enter into the bus. His room was approximately 22 kms from his office. He took ticket from the conductor and shifted towards one corner of the bus.
After few minutes, he started listening music via his mobile phone. Listening to an old song, ‘maine poocha chand se ki dekha hai kahin’; after few minutes the bus reached at the next station. Few more passengers entered into the bus and among them was a girl of around 23 years old. She was not very pretty, with a fair face complexion, but, she was a little different from others. On the other side, Rehaan was just listening to music. She was not far from Rehaan so; he got his eyes fixed into her face. When she looked at him, he just moved his eyes from her face and was trying to show that he was not looking at her face. After few minutes, he again try to look at her face, but, this time a tall man was between both of them, who had hide her face from Rehaan. He started adjusting here and there to have a look at her face, but he failed due to heavy crowd.
When few passengers left the bus on the next station, Rehaan managed to have a seat and luckily she was sitting just right to him. He thanks God and was thinking to have a conversation with her.
He said, ‘Hello, I am Rehaan.’ She replied ,’Hi’. He asked for her name and she replied, ‘My name is Nisha’. This was the only conversation between them. In the next station she left the bus.
That night he couldn’t sleep properly, whole night he was thinking about her. Was he really in love with her or was it just attraction?
The next day while going to his office, when bus arrived at the station where she was dropped yesterday, he started finding her. But she was not there, the bus left and he felt little down. Again in the evening, when bus arrived at that station, his eyes were searching her like someone searching for matchstick in darkness, but again he failed.
This process continues for one week and the result was also shame.One night listening to music, he was thinking of her and suddenly song :
‘Na jane kyu hota h ye jindagi ke sath
Achanak ye man kisike jane k baad
Kare phir uski yaad
Chhoti-chhoti si baad’
This song increased his emotions of loneliness and few pearls of greatest feeling started dropping from his eyes. That night he couldn’t sleep and next day he decided to take leave from office. In the evening he went to a coffee shop and was trying to forget everything what had happened during last few days.
When he was going out of the coffee shop, he was astonished to see Nisha there. This time she was looking cool, wearing a blue colored saari, with her long hairs. He approached her and when he was in front of her, an eye contact of around 10 seconds, she moved her eyes from his; now it was his time to express everything. He said, ‘I don’t know what you think about me, but you are more than something for me. You don’t know how I have suffered in the last days, but now everything is ok. I can’t promise that I will always keep you happy, but I will always be there with you in every moments of your life. I really love.’
She was shocked by his proposal, but she was also impressed that he was able to say everything to her in a large crowd. People were also watching this scene and were waiting for the response of the girl. He was on his knees, and you can imagine his situation that time.
Finally after thinking for few minutes, she accepted his proposal because he was a nice guy. Rehaan stands from his knees and move close to her and hug her; the people around them started giving applauses.
