Sweet memories from the past!!!!!

As she opened the screen of her apartment located opposite to the Marina Beach,

A bright sunshine welcomed her to the outer world with

The atmosphere being filled with the chirping sound of the birds and

High tides brushing aside the shores……

Even though the nature’s beauty was at its best, this beauty’s face looked sad for unknown reasons.

It was their first marriage anniversary, but she has to spend the day alone, as Ajay was not able to come back from Singapore due to official work.

Two years ago, a mom was trying her level best to wake up her 23yr old kid.

“எழுந்திரி மா, atleast உன் பிறந்த நாள் அன்னைக்கு நாச்சும் கோயில் போக வேண்டாமா", mom pleaded her daughter

“அஞ்சே நிமிஷம் தான்...நான் கண்டிப்பா எழுந்திடுவேன்", replied the sleepy voice

“இந்த அஞ்சு நிம்ஷம்கர கதைலாம் வேண்டாம், சோம்பேறி கழுத, எழுந்திரி", mom pleaded again.

“bad mummyyyy, கணவுல சூர்யா வரச்ச disturb பண்ண வேண்டாம்னு எத்தன தடவ சொல்லிருக்கேன்", சிரிச்சுகிட்டே  she got up.

The young couple had a heated argument on the previous night, as Ajay was stuck up in client’s meeting due to which, he would not be coming to India to spend time with her during their first anniversary.

A year ago,

“கல்யாண பொண்ண எழுப்பி விடுங்க...மணி அஞ்சு ஆச்சு...ready ஆக வேண்டாமா..முகுர்த்த நேரம் வேற நெருங்கிடும்..மாப்பிள்ளை வீட்டுகாரங்க கத்த போறாங்க",  a mom was shouting at the top of her voice to wake her daughter.

“அதுங்காட்டியும் விடிஞ்சிருச்சா, என்ன கொடுமை டா சாமி", murmured the sweet voice.

“சமத்து பொண்ணா எழுந்து ரெடி ஆகு மா, உன்ன கட்டிக்க போறவன் கடல் தாண்டி இன்னும் கொஞ்சம் நேரத்துல வந்திருவான்", அம்மா கிண்டல் பண்ணிட்டே பொண்ண எழுப்பி விட்டாங்க....

“அதான் மாப்பிள்ளை சிக்கியாசுள்ள, then y worry, no worry ma", சொல்லிட்டே அம்மாவ பாத்து கன்னடிச்சிட்டு she got up

9.30 AM…..As she was wandering inside the house wondering what to do,

The silence in the air was  broken by the constant buzz of the bell.

As she opened the door,

A cake box was lying in front of her door, and as she touched the box, 
voices screamed from everywhere,
Happy Birthday”, 
as friends appeared in front of her and said,
 “23 வயசாச்சு போல??”

She was surprised to see Ajay kneeling in front of her with a bouquet in his hand. With a smiling face, in a lovely and composed tone he said, “A happy First Anniversary on your 25th Bday, Dear"

As tears rolled down her eyes, she hugged Ajay and said, “போடா, நீ வர மாட்டேனு சொன்னதுனால, எவ்வளவு feel பண்ணினேன் தெரியுமா"

“ஒரு surprise than மா”, replied Ajay

“surprisa, அடி வாங்குவ; இன்னொரு தடவ இப்படி ஏதாவது பண்ணு , ஆப்பு வைக்கிறேன் உனக்கு", சொல்லிட்டு சிரித்தால் அவள்.

As she was sipping the coffee along with Ajay, seated on a sofa, she wondered about the bonding of the number 27 and the month, November, while the memories from the past appeared in front of her.

It was the same date, a year ago, when she got married to Ajay….

It was the same date, two years back, when she celebrated birthday with her friends…..

Thousand miles away, Rahul woke up suddenly from his sleep to realize that the clock had ticked 9.30 AM. Remembering the celebrations during the past two years, when Rahul was able to meet her friend on bday as well as marriage, he cursed himself for not being able to meet her in person on her first marriage anniversary this year.

Feeling sad, he took his phone and dialled her number to wish her……..
