Hi, you must be wondering who I’m. Well, I’m the one who is on the death bed on the way to emergency ward where everyone is rushing to save my life, looking at my condition doctors say there is only one percent chance of survival so ya I’m in a critical condition and everyone is gazing at me with sorrow in their eyes but my eyes are looking for a special person whom I wanted to be even in my last breath seems she may not come to see me. Wait a minute I see her!! but what I expected was I never expected to see her like that. Hey, am I unconscious?? Ya, I’m. But I can still hear everyone where the doctor is shouting to make it quick saying they are losing me, but I’m ok with it. Do you want to know why ??? Let me tell you the story which you may have never heard, a story you wanted to fell in love with or hate it.
By the way, I forgot to say you my name “ Hi I’m Ansh “ not an inch of god but ansh of my parents more than the god who has no supernatural powers like a god but a deadliest power called “ Love “. I’m no extraordinary man I’m just a simple and common man like you. I just completed my graduation and thought of taking a break for few months as you know it a difficult task to convince parents to make such decisions and in India it doesn’t matter much in higher class and lower class but it becomes a thunder storming task to convince the parents, so I came up with an idea so I went to my parents and about to say my stupid crazy idea, mom said to have your supper me and dad want to talk something with you listening to those words I thought it was opportunity to say them about my break but you know how we are in front of parents we think of saying something but say something else. I quietly had my supper as I don’t know how to eat with my hand mom feeds me if not I have to use spoon and fork after finishing my supper I went to my dad who was in the other room slowly mom joined too and I forgot to mention that I have the coolest parents in the world because I never had any best friends except for my mom and dad but parents are parents so I was about to start my story about the break after graduation my parents stopped me and said “we never let you play or go out with friends because we are afraid that anything may happen to you “, you know the beauty of the parents however they may treat you they always love you. And I was listening to my parents quietly then suddenly my dad gave me his atm card and said: “use it carefully”. I didn’t understand why he was saying so, while I was in a dilemma thinking why he was saying so suddenly mom opened the cupboard and gave me a completely packed bag pack which pushed me in the world of questions. They said, “We thought you might need a break, for a while so we thought of sending you on a trip alone for a month but you need to call us daily“. Listening to that I was the happiest person who ran to my room with joy. But you never think how your parents feel when they send you far from them. I was asleep as I have to travel the next day on an unknown journey. Where I was in a deep sleep my parents haven’t had a tiny nap and started to worry how I’m gonna see how parents think about us but we never think even for a moment how they are gonna be without us. And when you start earning and get married instead of taking more care of parents most of you leave them in old age homes as if they are a burden to you what if your parents have left thinking the same about you or what if your children do the same with you. They will be happy there or maybe pretend to be happy but every moment till the last breath they remember you and recall you and memories with you. How hard is to love your parents. Well, seems we are going away from our trip, lets to get back to the plans for the trip.
Now, I opened the India map which I haven’t seen after the secondary school exams. Hmm, where to go ??? Thinking about it mind thought of starting from Kashmir where heart thought of starting from Kanyakumari. Mind and heart are like north pole and south pole always make choices difficult then came up with an idea of writing down all the states in pieces of paper folded them mixed them well and asked my parents to pick one each and they did even they took the north pole and south pole that is Kashmir and Kanyakumari so I decided to visit both the places so made up my one month trip as15 days in Kashmir and 15 days in Kanyakumari.
Now the journey begins
Kashmir a beautiful place of Mother India. People see it as a battleground between India and Pak but in reality, it is the quietest and peaceful place I ever have seen the melting snow on the hills is a view to see, the freshwater flow and people their traditions I’m damn sure why India never want to leave Kashmir its beauty is like a crown of India.
I took a room and a bike for lease and started traveling and stopped at a carnival which was taking place in small part of the village and I started taking pics and took pics of kids with their joyful faces and I believe “a kids smile is the cure to everything” and suddenly a guy was rushing somewhere hit me and fell I was about to scold him but he was holding an 8-year-old kid who was unconscious and the kid’s mother was right behind the man with water in the eyes saying sorry to me and lifting the man and the kid making him the father of the kid who was about to break into tears looking at the state of his poor kid. I asked him what was the problem, he replied that his kid collapsed all of a sudden and they were rushing to the hospital which was 2 km away. I said I can take you there without any second thought as I have the bike. The man said to his wife to go home and wait for them and I took the father and child to the hospital as I was an expert driver I was able to manage the time of travel. And to save more time I saw a medical camp in between and took them there. In the camp, they injected the kid with saline and after a few hours the kid was back to conscious the kid’s father was happy to see his kid in a better state. Even I was worried and standing there after seeing the kid in better condition even I felt better. He called the kid’s mother and said the kid was fine. Now the doctor who was wearing the mask came to me and said it's ok the kid was normal now gave a prescription to the kid’s father and said to use the medicines and also said the medicines were free in the camp and the father left with the kid and I was going to thank the doctor, the doctor unmasked and to my surprise, she was the most beautiful person I ever saw after my mom maybe she was the woman I was in love next to my mom. She was staring at me came near me with a smile and said I thought you were the kid’s father by seeing your tension. I said do I look that old to you. She was laughing and said “no, I was just assuming” and she left. After seeing her and returning to the room there was only one thing running in mind “ what if she is the one”. Generally, when people fall in love they say to the person first but I called my two besties and as I said I have two besties my mom and dad so I called them and said that I was in love with her. And they were serious but they asked me what was her name and to my surprise, I forgot to ask her name so I said I will call you tomorrow and said I was sleepy and hung up the call. The very next morning I went to the camp but couldn’t find her so I enquired others they said there was no such doctor in their group. I argued saying that she treated a kid yesterday but to my surprise, they said the camp was empty as they took a break to get the supplies and to give a report to head office. I couldn’t believe their words so I went back to the carnival but to my surprise, yesterday was the last day of carnival with zero clues I had to head back to the room and thinking about her and thinking that I may find some clue I was looking at the pictures taken in the carnival and 1 day left to leave Kashmir with last hope I went to the camp but the camp was burnt to ashes and cops and military were around saying some terrorists attacked the camp at night. I rushed and asked were anyone harmed they said no only terrorists were shot dead as it was night and there was an electric facility there the doctors were staying in a nearby village so they weren’t harmed. Hearing those words I went to that village and to my surprise I found her I rushed to her and hugged her and said you are alright I was worried about you and said: “ I’m sorry I forgot you don’t know me right “. She said no don’t worry Mr. Worry's face I remember you, in fact, I was searching for you and waiting for you to meet me. I said, “you were searching and waiting for me?why?” And “why does everyone in the camp say they don’t know you and I’m leaving tomorrow so thought of knowing your name”. She said seems your in love with me so where are you leaving tomorrow. Listening to her words I was shocked and thought how did she know I was in love with her. And asked her name even in that confusion. She asked me my name and I replied “I’m Ansh” and she said what a coincidence our names match a lot my name is __ , as she was about to say her name there was an explosion near the village everyone was scattered screams everywhere police controlled everything but by the time I lost her again. With many thoughts in mind, I was on the way to Kanyakumari. But in my mind these questions were going on" Who is she ? Where is she coming from? Where does she disappear?WHAT’S HER NAME ?"
