Now, I wanted to get in touch with her. I was searching for any source like mobile no or Facebook ID to talk to her outside classroom. I didn't even know her name so I thought to ask. One morning, When I was on stairs going into the classroom, and she was coming out for may water or something, I collected all the courageous inside me said-"Good morning". "Good morning," she replied smiling went fast. I wanted to ask her name, but she went too fast. After that, I tried several times to ask, but I failed. Whenever we crossed or met each other in the classroom or on stairs or on roads, I tried to ask her name, but my mouth couldn't open. I just remained thinking to speak or talk. Once, I got a good opportunity to talk. After class, she was going home through Dakbangla chauraha. She was with her friend. I followed her. They went to a mobile shop. I also went there, I had also to get recharge my mobile. I stand just beside her and told to shop owner- "Ek recharge karna hai." "Two minutes," he replied. He was doing a recharge of her mobile.
She looked at me once, said something to her friend and both laughed. I thought they maybe talked about me. Now, I was silent and she was talking with her friend sometimes in between. I was trying to talk to her, say something, or ask a mobile number or simply ask her name. I was trying hard to speak or start talking, but was unable to do so. My inner voice was also saying that it is a good opportunity, Awanish. Speak, say something, start conversation. I kept thinking, but couldn't speak even a single word. Maybe, she kept waiting for my turn to start a conversation. She went, I lost an opportunity, I kept thinking, I missed her. The next day, in the classroom I asked her name from a student who was sitting just beside me. "Gitanjli", he replied. "Oh, really. Are you sure." yes "Are you telling a lie" I wanted to confirm it because he was laughing. I thought he is joking. "why will I tell a lie" he replied again laughing. I trust him this time. When I went back to my room, I started to search "Gitanjali" on Facebook.
