Abi & Myself... (Abiyum..Nanum)

So Venkat, time for the next story to be updated on your blog? Are you ready with one?

Oh yeah, I’m… Hope it comes out well…

Haha,.. you hope for that every time you write a story, but invariably you fail….

Hello! My English Kids are not that bad as you think, ok!!...

Ok, ok…. Let’s start the story… so where does this story revolve around?

It revolves around two friends… and they are in midst of celebrating something...

Something –ah, what is that?

Read the story, you would know…

Hi… Good morning!

Good Morning Abi, what’s up… looking so refreshed today?

Hmm… Yeah… you know there is something special today?

Oh is it? hmm.. let me take a guess.. Today is your birthday…

What nonsense! It’s in the month of June… try again…

Hmm… today is the day you really thought you are going to work in the office…

Oye donkey! How dare you to comment me like this! I am known for hard working…

Ok, ok… you are indeed one… sorry, I lose; you tell me what’s special today…

Let me tell you, you are No.1 waste… today we are completing 6 months of our friendship da…

Oh… I see…

What a fantastic reaction! I atleast expected some formality happiness ya!

Eh, I am happy for that, but I am sorry about my reaction though, it was something spontaneous….

That’s what I am surprised, I can’t agree with your happiness then... You don’t really think this is something of remarkable day… or the day to celebrate… you don’t really want to cherish our friendship…

It’s not like that, I am really happy for our friendship Abi!...

You say so, but not your reactions!

Reactions ko Goli Maro! Ok, tell me, how you want to celebrate this day…

Forget it! I lost all the mood…

What is this Venkat? Once again this story is going nowhere! Your hero is very complicated…

Why you say so?

Then what? Abi is so happy to celebrate their 6 months of friendship, this guy looks dumb, no reactions at all...

Sir, we really don’t know why he is reacting like that? His low reactions, doesn’t mean he is not interested in the friendship… it might be something else also…

What is that…?

We don’t know, we have to read the story to know that…

I know what next would happen... as usual, this guy would now make up for his earlier mistake… will talk goody goody words and take her to some restaurant or so and give a good treat for her to celebrate this day… that’s how all men hide their mistakes…

Haha.. I agree few men do that, but let’s see if our Hero is one among them… so as you say, the next scene is in a restaurant…

So how is the chocolate icecream Abi?

Oh delicious da… I love chocolates to death… hehe

Don’t eat much ok! Not good for your teeths!

Enough of your advises, you keep on advising me for everything… ok, I want to ask you one thing…

What?

you remember, at the start of our friendship, I asked you to list down my mistakes & you told you would give your real response in future…

hmm, I do… How can you expect me to tell some one’s good or bad things within 1 week of introduction…?

ok, ok… now since it’s been 6 months, I think you can list down few right…

Few-ah, there are many yaar..

oye!.. Ok, if so, I want to know that…

Not now, sometime later…

No, no… I want to know now only…

Ok, we will play a small game, I will ask you set of few questions, your answers should only be either ‘yes’ or ‘no’… okay!

So what’s the trick in this!

The trick is I bet all your answer would only be ‘No’. If your answer is ‘No’ for all the questions that I ask, then I win... so I won’t tell your mistakes at all… and if you can say ‘Yes’ even for one single question, then you win, I will answer all your questions.. Got it Abi?

Eh, this is not fair…. What if you ask “are you a male”, my answer will be obviously ‘No’, so you win... Ah! This is not fair baba…

You wise lady! My questions won’t be like that, for e.g. I will ask you, “did you bath today”... obviously your answer would be ‘No’... so I win... right…

Stupid, Get Lost!

Eh, it’s just an example... ok, so what I meant was my questions would be something genuine, which you could have done, but not did so far… got it?

Hmm, ok... let’s try this out… I wish I could say ‘Yes’ for atleast one of your question... so shoot!

OK, this is a rapid wire round… so I need your answers quickly…

Venkat what is this? Is this a quiz show… you said your characters are going to celebrate their 6 months friendship, and they are talking something nonsense here…

Whether it is something nonsense or wise, we will only know after the story ends… infact do you know what happened in Abi’s house in the morning, she had a very interesting conversation with her sister…

Oh what’s that?

Eh Abi! You look so energetic & happy today! What’s the matter?

Nothing, I am going to meet my best friend, by today we complete our 6 months friendship…

Oh is it! Who is that by the way, the same one in your office…?

Of course yes, who else then…

Oh great, nice to know that… but what’s in him that you like so much…

He is my best friend…

In what sense?

He cares for me more than he cares for himself…, he knows my moods, he reads my emotions perfectly and he doesn’t complain on anything that I don’t do for him…

What are those…?

Like, I never really cared about his problem, I mean I wasn’t interested… or I should say I was more concerned about my own world that I didn’t really look beyond that… so I don’t really know much about his World of people…

So you say, you people talk more about yourself and your set of world rather than anything about him…

Yeah perfectly, it’s OK at the start of any relationship, after a while, the other person might really get bored or frustrated whoever it may be, but this fellow.. Didn’t really complain even once for not really showing that ‘care’ for him… He was there all the time when I needed him, but I am not sure whether I was there for him whenever he needed me…

Interesting! Didn’t he complain about that even once?

No he didn’t... that’s very amazing… and that alone made me to think… if I ever will get a friend, who isn’t worried whether I care for him or not… or I should say whether I show that I care for him or not… he is still there for me all the time… he doesn’t complain even once that I don’t ask any question about him…

Hmm…. Good… all the best…

So what relevance has this part in the story Venkat?

Hello! Why you ask me all the questions, read the story yaa… you will get to know...

Ok, continue with the rest of the story…

So can I ask my questions... Abi?

Yup… don’t make me wait…

Do you know my birth date?

Hello! What is this question ya… I…

Madam Abi! You are only requested to answer ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ for my questions, that’s the deal… so say yes or no…

Ok, No!

Did you made efforts to know my date of birth?

No..

Do you really think you know what irritates me in my daily life…?

No!

Do you know the biggest problem I’m facing in my personal or professional life?

Well, No…

You know I own a website, so do you regularly check what I write in there..

Eh, I said, I will, I didn’t find time… so…

Yes or no Abi!

Ok, No…

I said, I had a severe pain in my eye few days ago, did you check with me the next day as how I was feeling…

So what is your conclusion now? You mean to say I don’t take care of you…

Y or N!

NOOOOOOOOO

Do you really think, you know me…?

……

I didn’t hear anything…

NO

Do you know what makes me happy & what makes me upset…?

Ok stop it ya! I lose…I know for all your questions, my answer is going to be NO, so now what is that you wanted to prove here…

That you have to understand…

Now I understood… why you had no reactions when I wished you for our 6 months friendship, you don’t really like me or my friendship; you were frustrated with me for not showing enough care or interest in your world….

It’s not that Abi!

No, I am not a child! I can understand, if you think I am not worth, then OK fine, let’s give a full stop to our friendship… you believe I’m not worth your friendship, ok fine… I’m not…

Can you give me a minute to talk Abi!

You already talked sir! You talked enough…

Now what’s there to get emotional Abi!

Your hero is very sadist fellow sir! He asks all stupid questions, he makes this poor girl Abi to cry… and finally as if he has done nothing wrong, he says, what’s there to get emotional… this is stupid stuff…

So why do you think he is sadist?

Then what Venkat, didn’t you see what this poor Abi was telling her sister… she is very well aware of her short comings, and since she feels that this fellow has not highlighted them, she has high regard for him… now see by asking all such stupid questions, he has downgraded himself.. He is not any special person; he is also one among the other ones, who has all typical expectations from others…

Haha…

What’s there to laugh… first I thought your Hero is something different from others, no he is not... he also has expectation, and when his expectations doesn’t come true… he waits for the right time to pour it out as poison without caring how others will feel..

Tell me one thing… Abi only asked to highlight her mistakes, right!

Yes she did…. But by doing so, he is now losing her friendship nah… the same reason for which she thought he is her best friend, has now gone into pieces…

Is that so? Ok, let see what Abi is gonna do now… can we see the conclusion…

Quick… Venkat… I want justice to be given Abi… and also finish it off quickly, already your story has gone into 5th page...

What ya! All want justice to girls… think about men too boss! They are also poor….

Whether or not they are poor, it depends upon how you conclude the story, now go ahead…

Abi, look at me and listen to me for a minute… you asked me to highlight your mistakes right…

Yes I did, but I never thought you will disappoint me with such crap… I thought you are something special, no… you are also one among the others, you are also selfish… you also want to receive 50, if you think you have given your 50…

Haha, My abi is best when she gets emotional…. Arae yaar… today we are celebrating our 6th month of friendship... so what else is the best occasion to see the stock of our relationship so far... I thought we have reached a stage where any daily course of arguments wouldn’t anyway affect our friendship otherwise…

If so, what’s the logic behind your questions…?

Logic… you want logic... ok, tell me what are you going to wear tomorrow?

Now what is this another stupid question? You have already asked enough questions…

Please answer… do you know or not…

No, I don’t…

Ok, my point is as we don’t know what’s gonna happen tomorrow, I am also not sure what’s gonna happen to our friendship either… we might still celebrate 16th year of friendship… or we might get busy with our own world that we might hardly remember our 1st friendship anniversary…

So…

So I thought this is the right time to tell you few things…

Like…

I want you to take little interest of what’s going on with the people around you… show that you care for them too... tomorrow I might be here or not… you might be with a new relationship, a better one may be… but I don’t want this thing to create a problem for you.. Like you, others too like to share things that are going on in their world, some do it openly as you do, and some wait for the right moment...

So...

There is nothing wrong to be too involved in your own world, but occasionally come out of that, and start taking interest in others too, they might be looking for you, that’s what I wanted to tell you… again I’m happy with the way you are with me so far… but I wanted you to think about it if you are getting into any kind of new relationship in future… got it Abi!

Hmm… So what is your Date of birth?

Heheh… stop it Abi! I’m not going to tell you, and I don’t want you to ask any questions about me now… don’t keep this in your head for ever… just think about it... if you think I was right in something, try to implement it with others and see the results… all the best…

You know what?

Kya Abi?

You are still my best friend! ....
