The Love Story Tells Us That It’s The Experience That Matters Not The Time We Spend

Contributed By Manoj Kumar

Goa dabolim airport… Gate no 2 daggara luggage teesukoni exit avutunna… Cab share chesukuntey best deal dorukutundhi emo ani inkokari kosam chustunna… 

Headset lo Taanu nenu paata play avutundhi… Naa instincts endhuko nannu cab counter vaipu choodamannayi…

And there I saw her!

Quite attractive… Mana country kaadhu… Definitely a foreigner… Medalo kaashayam colour lo unna Om scarf… Curly hair… kaasta ayomayamlo unna tana expression… As it all felt like even she is looking for some one..

Oka random ammayi daggaraku velli conversation start cheyyali antey… Obviously mana heart heat ekkipotundhi… Ayina tanani approach avvadaniki edho oka positive sign dorakakapotundha ani edhuru choosa…

Thanks to the cab drivers… Madam.. madam… My cab… My cab antu tana chuttu mutteysariki… Tanu inka chuttu choodadam modhala pettindi… Evaranna help chestaaremo ani…

And then she looked at me… Tana kallatoh nannu pilichindi.. Inka manalni kotteyvaadu evadu…

Daggaraku Vella.. Tanu ekkadiki vellalo telusukunna… ‘If you want you can join with me ‘ ani fingers cross chesthu adiga…

‘Ohhh thank you so much… That would be really great’ ani tanu antu untey… naa favorite song hook line la manchi high vochindi…

Luggage back petti front seat lo kurchundham ani door open chesthu untey… ‘Don’t mind.. you can sit back with me’ ani tanu aney sariki… ‘Em nayana laddu kaavala’ anna meme voice..

The journey started… Appudey flight digina naaku inkaa gaali loney unnattu anipinchindhi… Her presence made me feel high… Tana peru Terrie… India mottam solo trip cheddam ani UK nunchi ochindi… First impression… Gutsy…

India tho unna tana anubhavalani…anuboothulani naatho panchukundi… I was intrigued with her way way of talking… India lo undey naakey teliyani chaala vishayaalu nu every minute detail toh tanu explain chesthu untey… She not only seemed attractive but also interesting…

Suddenly there was a bit of silence… When feelings dominate the words you don’t find anything to speak…  Lucky ga car lo maa driver tum saath ho song play chesaadu… Thanks to AR Rahman for being so popular… Now I got something to talk about… We talked so much about his music… Almost fail ayipothunnamm anukunna exam ki chits dorikinantha aanandham…

We r already half way through… First time Vasco nunchi Panjim 30 km kaadhu 300 km ayithey baagundedhi anipinchindi… 25 kmph speed lo velthunna driver ni inkaa slow ga vellamani chepthu untey tanu navvindi… May be she knew that I was caught to her craziness… 

Tanaku ishtamyna songs play cheyyadam modhala petta… She completely lived it through… after all there was always one damn good song behind every beautiful moment…

Manam edho try chesthunnam ani telisaaka kooda tanu mana maatalni anthey excited ga vintundhi antey antha kanna classy feeling inkoti ledhu…

Tanani appudey kalisi undochu… Tana gurinchi naaku peddaga em telisi undakapovochu… But sometimes you have to trust the instincts… When it’s making your heart blush and eyes shine, it got to add something to your life.. Antha strong ga excite chesina aa feeling ki inko chance ichi chooddaali anipinchindi…

I thought to ask her out… May be it’s too quick but it can’t be too late even….

Inthalo Google… Your destination will be arrived in 950 mtrs ani warning istundhi… The time ran so fast… Einstein cheppinattu time is relative… Kaani ikkada parameter speed kaadhu… the person you r with…. they make even hours feel like seconds yet making every second eternal.

Mana life ni define chesey chaala moments ki nelalo… savastraalo akkarledhu… They just happen in fraction of seconds… just like accidents… And yeah… not all accidents leads us to ICU… some even leads us to ILU…

Destination arrived… Tanu luggage teesukoni vellipobothundhi… Okkati maataram sure… It’s not the feeling of losing someone that hurts the most… but the feeling that we never gonna get them back… That is scary… aa bhayam nundey dhairyam puttindi…

Terrie.. Can we meet again ani adagakaney adigesaa…

Tanu nenu adigina daaniki reply ivvakunda ‘how much is the cab share’ ani andhi..

Ohh.. May be that’s it anukunna… 550 ani tanaku cheppi… Sarey inka light teesuko ani naa manasuki cheppukunna…

Money ishtu ishtu… ‘Be here at 6 AM tomorrow’ ani cheppi navvuthu vellipoyindi… Rangam cinema climax twist la bhaley kick ichindi… Sure ani cheppi bayalderaaa… Driver ki volume full ga pettamanna… aa music lo unna bass kanna naa heart beat ey naaku gattiga vinipistundhi… Thrilled to witness that euphoria… 

Tana inko two days lo malli UK vellipothundhi ani telusu… Aa experience ki expiry date undhi ani kooda telusu…

Ayina aagipovali anukoledhu… May be I was supposed to forget the consequences for that moment..

Aa next two days tanatoh ney gadipaa… Sunrise nundi sunset dhaaka… Cofee nunchi drinks daaka.. Tana heartful smile nundi painful tears dhaaka pratheedi daggara nundi choosaa… People are real when in pain.. you often fall for their tears rather than their smiles…  

I know that heart break is sad… When an overwhelming love has come to an end, it’s tragic… But is there anything more tragic than a love, which never even had a chance to begin…

And I am glad that we atleast gave a chance for it to begin…

Next roju tanani airport daggara drop chesaa… Tanu ela ayithey navvuthu naa life loki ochindho malli alaaney navvuthu tirigi vellipoyindi… No hard feelings… Infact edho teliyani oka completeness… Akkada nunchi return avuthunappudu malla ‘taanu nenu’ song play chesaa… kaakapothey ee saari music kosam kaadhu… kevalam lyrics kosam…. Endhukantey…. Kaavyam nenu… Saaram taanu…
