Dev’s 10th examinations were going on. One day during exam, he saw a girl who was in the same room. She was a simple and beautiful girl and Dev was lost in her beauty. After the exam, the whole day he was thinking of her, so, he couldn't study properly for the next exam i.e., Mathematics. The next day he couldn't perform well in Mathematics. Onward he ignored her and concentrated better on his studies.
When he joined class 11th, he was shocked by watching the same girl in his class. She has taken admission into his school. Dev was very happy and was thanking God for all this. You can imagine his degree of happiness. Her name was Gauri. After few days he started talking with her and she was also showing interest in him. Within few days they became good friends.
They had started coming soon to school for having time with each other. After exchanging their contact numbers they used to communicate via phone calls or messages. During classes several times they used to look at each other. Only two-three classmates were aware about their relationship.
They had come very close to each other so, one day they decided to visit Mathura and Agra. They went early in the morning; firstly visiting various temples in Mathura, they went to the Taj Mahal. Gauri’s favourite color was blue, so, he was wearing blue t-shirt. That day both were extremely happy and they should be because, they were at the symbol of love- ‘Taj Mahal’, where every couple wants to go. That evening, they passed around 3 to 4 hours just talking in the hotel’s garden and when Dev check the time, he was surprised that it was around 11 pm then, they went to their rooms. This was the most beautiful day of their life.
Days were passing beautifully; one day Gauri said to Dev, ‘one boy proposed me.’ Dev didn’t respond but, he was not happy with this. Might be Gauri wanted him to propose her, because they were in one year long relationship. Dev was belonging to a village were caste is a major factor, so he was thinking that his parents will never allow him to marry Gauri because Gauri belonged to different caste.
After class 12th he started avoiding her. He took admission in an engineering college and she took admission in a government college. Their interaction was also decreased, Gauri used to call him and used to scold him. After few months, Dev changes his number and couldn’t send his new number to Gauri. She tried to contact him many times but failed. She went to his college to check his number from the students’ contact list. When she received his new number, she called him and but didn’t ask for the reason behind his number. Sometimes, she used to cry during calls. He used to love her but I can’t say what was the reason behind ignoring her.
In 2012 her marriage was fixed. She informed him about the marriage and also invited him. He was surprised when he listened to this. He didn’t go to her marriage; how can one attend marriage of the person whom he loves.
Now, he says to me, ’It was my mistake, I lose a person who used to love me the most.’ Even now days, she call him sometimes. You can understand that it is impossible to forget the one, who used to be the best part of your life someday.
