Did I go blind?


What a tragedy is it when you simply go blind all of a sudden. It happens with almost anyone of us. Some go blind physically, while some mentally and the rest spuriously. No matter the type of blindness, it is for sure distressing.

Last week when I met Hari at a public meeting, there was a beautiful lady, Maya, looking her best, sitting next to him. At first instance, I thought they were friends. Her mannerism was such that one can never resist admiring and giving a second look. 

In my case, it was not just a second look she got. I was looking at her every second. Well, you definitely need some time pass sitting a utterly boring session like that. 

Seeing me turn my head now and then to look at her, my dear notorious friend G3, who sat beside me, hit me on my tummy and said " don't drool much, they are engaged"

Today, when I looked at Hari's side, I was surprised to see some other girl sitting next to him. They behaved so intimate that you could easily make out they were in  a relationship.  

Maya was not even in my vicinity. Now my mind went back to its detective mode, trying top figure out all the possible reasons why somebody else is in Maya's place. That kept me awake for some time.

Looked like almost every one in the room except me were deeply absorbed in the talk. Or where they sleeping? I don't know. How can people stand such boring lectures lullabies?

When I was about to doze off, G3  struck me on my shoulder and asked me out for a coffee. That was exactly what I wanted then and I walked out in relief to the cafe with her. I decided to ask G3 about Maya during the coffee but was a little reluctant because in the past inquiring about girls have always brought me trouble. 

As we started to sip our coffee, to my surprise, Maya entered and occupied the seat right in front of us. G3 and Maya happens to be good friends. They studied together in the same college for almost 4 yrs.

We shook hands as G3 got us introduced. Maya placed her orders and we had a casual talk for a while. From her face it was evident that she just woke up like me from the lecture induced somnolence. Once when the waited rang the bell, she left for a separate table where her order was served. 

The first impression she left, evoked a sense of admiration. From  what I could make out in the 10 minutes of talk, she seemed to be very practical and very clear about her life. She was a perfect blend of looks, character, maturity, mannerism and style. In addition, I could make out from her appearance that she pays great attention to grooming, and clothes. She is what you call a woman!

Just as I finished my mental analysis, G3 gave me a shock. She said, "Maya and Hari broke up". The reason being, Hari felt it tough to adjust with her character. It seems she is too childish and irresponsible.

How on earth is it possible? A mis-adjustment problem with the picture she just painted in my mind is near to impossible. She had all the qualities you would expect in a lady.  I'm confused.

G3, only you can help me on this. But I know, asking too much of questions about a girl to her friend can be dangerous. ;) .So I think that confusion is going to linger in my mind for quite some time.

It's for sure that one of us are blind in Maya's case. May be I did see something that Hari didn't see, or I didn't see what Hari did see.

  5. We all have the heights of divinity and the depths of depravity within us, and no one is spared from this rule. Relationships work when we acknowledge that each of us are vulnerable and incomplete.

  7. Well, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. We all see the same thing in different ways... In case of people,it gets more complicated. Such is life!

  9. Maybe they were incompatible. What one person finds immature could be just some ideas that he/she finds impractical, but which are very practical for another person. It's good to form your own opinions, and not depend of anybody's ex's opinions (chances of being biased or prejudiced)

  17. most probably its case of " not made for each other"...it happens in several case where both the partners are flawless but dont get on well with each other as they lack of compatibility.

  20. I think more than you or Hari being blind to something to Maya, it's more like the way u perceive things/qualities/emotions/nature! The same quality which you both can see might not be the one that suits him but might be just the thing that would work out for you! :)
