ab jab tum jaa rahe ho to ek baat yaad rakhna, zindagi hamesha ek safar hai aur yea sab ko katna padta hai, par kuch log ke liye safar zindagi jeena hota hai. Aur tum unme se ek ho, tumhara safar ek aisa safar hai jo rooh ke saath ka hai.
Tumhare liye safar ek safarnama hai aur tumhe zinda rakhne ki jadibutti. Ab jaa rahe ho toh naye kisse kahaniya zarur laana.
Bindu is the person who loves travelling and her every breath is meant to travel. When she travels, she lives and when she lives, her aura makes that city look very beautiful. Every time when she travels, Bubla just waits for her return to listen to her stories. The best part is she always bring some gifts for him.
usko dekh kar bas ek pal men sukuniyat mil gayi.
wo sunhare chumkhe, wo badi bindi, wo nashili aankhein, nila kurta and uski budbudati hasi, aisa mano ke usko aise dekhkar ek pal mein zindagi ji li.
Ae bindu tumne to ek pal mein puri zindagi ka ehsaas dila diya, tumne toh sukuniyat ka matlab samjha dia.
Well, we humans strive for peace every single moment and Bindu is someone who can make you realise what peace looks like in one single moment. The world stops on seeing her dressed so elegantly in simple kurti matched perfectly with the Indian flavour of bindi and oxidised silver earrings and that brown coffee bean likes eyes. Her smile is the measure of absolute peace.
My eyes were searching for her in the crowd and as soon as my eyes manage to spor her, I noticed that she was wearing a black Kurta with those big jhumkas and her hair tied with help of the stick that looked like a polised ivory sculpture stopped my world.
She was approaching me and I was still standing, still waiting for her to come and smile.
However, suddenly my eyes opened and it was 2 am in the night. Unlike, other days the night was scary still I was shivering maybe because of losing her in my dream.
He cannot get over her jhumkhas and her hippy look. And without her Bubla’s life is like a blank page so even in his dreams he does not let Bindu be alone.
#4 Her motto
Forget everything and go on a break. Take your car, go for a drive. Spend a little quality time in the lap of nature, have a beer maybe, and just absorb the beauty of your life. The more you connect with yourself, the better life becomes. Remember that delusions are temporary, but conscience is undying. Do not let it die. Do not die several times before you die.
A line from one of Bubla’s article.
This is what Bindu told me when he was struggling to find his own way through the narrow roads of his life.
There are many more things that Bindu said and it just made him feel like what else do you need when you have a best friend. Bindu told me believe in me.
However, I was always questioned that Who am I for Bindu?
Well, I am her mother, bestfriend, wingman and bridesmaid.
We have spent the entire journey of our friendship by fighting and making sure that we blame each other for it. We abuse each other so that we can love each other. We rant together for being single and we hang out together to live in a world, the world which Bubla calls as DAKOTA.
So, live with your memories, till I meet you again with more memories of Bubla with Bindu.
Some snippets when Bindu is praising Bubla.
“I am just going for couple of days. I will be back soon child.”
“You are my wingman, chodu.”
“Fuck, this was all because of you Pyomi. If you were not there, I would definitely failed.”
“I feel satisfied to see you performing in front of the crowd.”
“You are not alone. I am here no. I am always here.”
“If we are not close still you will not let me fall. You will throw a rope in my direction and hold me with that.”
The list is too long to be written
