Miraculous Love!! 140

She was in her blues. Melancholic, heartsick, failing day by day.

Love of her life was about to get married and her splintered heart was counting the broken pieces when accidentally she met “him”.

Tensed she stood outside an Indian store waiting for her taxi in states.  It was dusky and cold.

She thought of waiting inside the store than standing outside.

As she entered the store, her beauty and tensed face caught “his” attention. He was mesmerized by this Indian beauty. He was an Indian too.

She was looking drop dead gorgeous in her black dress. Her curls swirled around her face making her even more beautiful.

He could sense it from her behaviour that she needs help. She seemed lost and muddled. She was continuously looking outside.

He couldn’t stop himself and went to her.

“Are you looking for something, Madame?” he asked politely.

He scanned her face without even moving the eyelids. He was mesmerized even more. Her kohl black eyes looked sad but attractive.

“No, Thanks” she smiled back attentively and walked away.

It was getting late and her cab was nowhere around. Finally, she cancelled her cab and tried booking for another cab but she failed.

She was new to the city and had no clue whom to ask. So she went to ‘him’ and asked, “Actually, I need some help. Can you book a cab for me, I am new here and unable to book a cab”.

He gazed her for few seconds and said” I am a cab driver. I came here to buy some stuff. If you want I can run you down to your place. I mean you can book my cab”.

Her face brightens up.

“Sure”, she responded with a relief.

“Madame. Please wait for me outside the store. I’ll get the car. It’s parked on the other side”, he added.

“Okay”, she replied with calmness.

Her tensed face was little relaxed now.

Shining black car was at her services in seconds.

She sat inside the car. “Drop me at 250 Washington Avenue, please”, she said.

“Sure, Ma’am”, he replied with a twinkle on his face.

It was approximately 25 mins drive only but it became the most memorable one for him. He knew this might be the last time he is seeing her but he didn’t want to make her uncomfortable by driving through the long route.  So he took the normal route.

Where his eyes were busy praising her beauty, she was busy scrolling her phone with tears in her eyes.

“Madame, Can I play some music”, he interrupted.

“Sure”, she said softly.

He played some soft romantic Bollywood numbers.

She closed her eyes dipping herself in the melody of the music but tears kept rolling down from her eyes.

His heart was aching seeing her wet cheeks but he said nothing. He was thinking,“She is just a stranger then why can I feel the pain, why am I getting affected, why am I feeling this way, Why?”

After few minutes a voice interrupted her emotions. She opened her eyes.

“Madam here comes your destination”, he began writing something on the paper.

She thought he is giving her the receipt. “How much do I need to pay you?”, she asked in a hurry of rushing inside her hotel.

“Take this Madame”, he said.

As soon as she held the paper he drove away.

She was shocked. She immediately opened the paper to read what was written.

He stated:

I am not a cab driver but am ready to help you as and when required. I am owner of that store. Do visit again but with a smile on your face. Take care- Karan

She stood still for few seconds. She was awestruck. She felt sheepish.  Her face turned pink. She just couldn’t believe it happened.

That night she didn’t sleep at all. She often caught herself smiling.

Her heart didn’t count its broken pieces that night instead her heart kept on thinking about “An angel in disguise”.

This little girl is afraid of lights…. WHY?? Watch the video! 232

A couple of days back I and my daughter witnessed an accident of a man with his child driving on a bike. Lot many people gathered at the spot and some helped the victims. I and my daughter stopped and helped the child who did not have any major wounds but was scarred here and there and was bleeding a little. The man too, but his back was hit badly to the road divider. Probably, I am afraid the inside damage may take some time to be revealed, though I hope he will be healed fully. The public started judging that the father must have lost control. Either he was driving with high speed or was on the phone while driving.

The truth was none of these reasons and the father had no mistake. The mistake was the car that sped away which drove in front of him while they were on the road in opposite direction. The father was at normal speed but when the car took a left turn and the high beam light blinded the father and he could not open his eyes. This made him lose control as he was caught suddenly. The car driver did not realize what he did or how he became a reason for someone to fall and so he just drove away. Luckily the father and daughter did not have any much damage, but what if something serious happened? Who is responsible for it?

Dear people, most vehicles have an option to dimmer your headlights. While driving in city limits keep your headlights dim and when in a darker and outskirts place you can make it higher. Many do not realize this and drive without even bothering about it. Please, do not be a reason of someone’s death knowingly or unknowingly. Do not take away a child’s father or mother just because you were too ignorant to check your headlights while driving. Here is a beautiful video that explains what I am talking. Share with your family and friends and spread the awareness. Because like you many just do not realize and once they know, I am sure people will be careful.

“I Fear a Relapse”, Says Deepika Padukone. 1379

The trailer of the most awaited Padmavati movie was released making us wait on a tiptoe for the movie to be released soon which is actually on December 1st, 2017 (See the trailer here). While on-screen Rani Padmini fights for her honor, the actress who plays the role, Deepika Padukone is fighting altogether a different battle in her real life.

While shooting for the Happy New Year movie, Deepika was fighting her inner battle of depression. Although she did not realize it then. Her mother who came to visit felt there was something wrong and requested Anna Chandy, a psychiatrist from Bengaluru to talk to her daughter. Though Deepika ignored it for a period of time, she finally recognized her problem and took steps to cure it. However, in a recent event, while talking about the Jauhar scene of Rani Padmini in the movie Padmavati, she revealed that she lives in a constant fear of a relapse of depression. She said “ I don’t think, I am completely over it. There is always a fear of relapse as that phase when it happened is the worst experience in my life”.

Since her opening up about her condition in public, there are numerous articles written about depression and there are plenty of suggestion available for someone who is looking for help. But, the truth is a lot many of the population who are suffering from depression do not know that they have it and they need help. Most of them try to think it is nothing but stress, fatigue and they are over-worked.

Like Deepika said in one of her interviews earlier while talking about her feelings during the time, being sad and being depressed are two different things. When someone is sad, they look sad, but when someone is depressed, most of the times they hide it. They try to behave normally while the feeling of emptiness keeps nagging at them. You do not have to be poor or have to lose something in life to be depressed. Sometimes the feeling of depression has no reason.

How to recognize the signs?

When someone is depressed, you may notice certain changes in them. Such as,

  • Less interested in daily activities
  • Loss of appetite and weight changes (can lose or gain)
  • being angry and irritable most of the times
  • less energised
  • self-loathing
  • reckless behaviors
  • Change in sleeping patterns

These are some of the changes we notice in a depressed person, not for few days but on a regular basis. If you spot these in someone or if you are facing it yourself, get help. There is no age or gender who are affected by depression.

Recognizing and understanding the symptoms of depression is the first step to finding a solution. Once you know, meet a good psychiatrist and get help. There is no shame in finding help to cure a mental illness. We meet our doctors for physical illness. In the same way, sometimes our mind also need that extra help too.

Do not, I repeat do not ever be afraid to ask for help!!! Because you might be surprised that there are so many good people around you who really care and want to help you.
