Leaf,Tree,Wind

I hate doing copy paste stuff but this one is a must read....so plzzzzzz.


I know its too long but really nice one....if possible read it>completely.....>>>

Tree, Leaf, Wind & Love . . .>>

People call me "Tree".>>

I had dated 5 girls when I was in Pre-U. There is one girl who I>love a>lot but never dared to go after. She didn't have a pretty face, good>figure or an outstanding charm. She was just a very ordinary girl. I>liked her. I really liked her. I liked her innocence, her frankness,>her>intelligence and her fragility. Reason for not going after her was>that>I felt somebody so ordinary like her was not a good match for me.
I was also afraid that after we were together all the feelings would vanish.I was also afraid other's gossip would hurt her.I felt that if she were my girl, she'd be mine ultimately & I didn't have to give up everything just for her. The last reason, made her accompanying me for 3 years. She watched me chase other girls, and I have made her heart cry for 3 years. She was a good actor, and me a demanding director. When I kissed my>second girlfriend, she bumped into us. She was embarrassed but smiled & said, "Go on!" before running off.
The next day, her eyes were swollen like a walnut. I did not want to know what caused her to cry. Later that day, I returned from soccer training to get something & watched her cry in the classroom for an hour or so.
My fourth girlfriend did not like her. There was once when both of them quarreled. I know that based on her character she is not the type that will start the quarrel.However, I still sided my girlfriend. I shouted at her & ignored her feelings and walked off with my girlfriend. The next day, she was laughing & joking with me like nothing happened. I know she was hurt but she did not>know>deep down inside I was hurt too.
When I broke up with my fifth girlfriend, I asked her out. Later>that>day, I told her I had something to tell her. I told her about my break up. Coincidentally, she has something to tell me too, about her>getting>together......
I knew who the person was. His pursuit for her had been the talk of the School. I did not show her my heartache, just smiles & best wishes.>Once>I reached home, I could not breathe. Tears rolled & I broke down. How many times have I seen her cry for the man who did not acknowledge>her>presence?
During graduation, I read a SMS in my mobile.
It said, "Leaf's>departure is>because of Wind's pursuit. Or because Tree didn't ask her to stay"

Leaf..>>People call me Leaf......

During the 3 years of Pre-U, I was on very close terms with a guy as>buddy kind. However, when he had his first girlfriend, I learnt a>feeling I never should have learnt - Jealousy. Sourness to the>extreme>limit. They were only together for 2 months. When they broke up, I>hide>my happiness. But after a month, he got together with another girl.
I liked him & I know he liked me. But why won't he pursue me? Since>he>loves me why he didn't he make the first move? Whenever he had a new>girlfriend, my heart would hurt. After some time, I began to suspect that this was one-sided love. If he didn't like me, why did he treat me so well? It's beyond what you will normally do for a friend. I know>his>likes, his habits. But his feelings towards me I can never figure out. You can't expect me a girl, to ask him.>Despite that, I still wanted to be by his side. Care for him, accompany>him, and love him. Hoping that one day, he will come to love me.>Because>of this, I waited for him. Sometimes, I wondered if I should>continue waiting. The pain, the dilemma accompanied me for 3 years.
At the end of my 3rd year, a junior pursues me. Everyday he pursues>me.>He's like the cool & gentle wind, trying to blow off a leaf from a>tree.>In the end, I realized that I wanted to give this wind a small>footing>in my heart.>I know the wind will bring the leaf to a better land. Finally, leaf left the tree, but the tree only smiled & didn't ask me to stay.

Leaf's departure is because of Wind's pursuit. Or cause Tree didn't>ask>her to stay.....

Wind..>People call me Wind......

Because I like a girl called leaf. Because she's so dependent on>tree, so I have to be a gust wind. A wind that will blow her away. When I>first met her, it was 1 month after I was transferred to this new>school. I saw a petite person looking at my seniors & me playing soccer.
During ECA time, she will always be sitting there. Be it>alone>or with her friends, looking at him.>When he talks with girls, there's jealousy in her eyes. When he>looked>at her, there's a smile in her eyes. Looking at her became my habit.>Just like, she likes to look at him.

One day, she didn't appear. I felt something missing. I can't>explain>the feeling except it's a kind of uneasiness. The senior was also>not>there as well. I went to their classroom, hid outside and saw my>senior>scolding her.>Tears were in her eyes while he left. The next day, I saw her at her>usual place, looking at him. I walked over and smiled to her. Took>out>a>note & gave to her. She was surprised. She looked at me, smiled &>accepts the note.
The next day, she appeared & passes me a note and left. It read, "Leaf's heart is too heavy and wind couldn't blow her>away.."...
"It's not that leaf heart is too heavy. It because leaf never want>to>leave tree."

I replied her note with this statement and slowly she>started to talk to me & accept my presents & phone calls. I know>that>the person she loves is not me. But I have this perseverance that>one>day I will make her like me.>
Within 4 months, I have declared my love for her no less than 20>times.>Every time, she will divert away from the topic. But I never give>up.>If>I decide I want her to be mine, I will definitely use all means to>win>her over. I can't remember how many times I have declared my love to>her. Although I know, she will try to divert but I still bear a small>ray of hope.

Hoping that she will agree to be my girlfriend. I didn't hear any>reply>from her over the phone. I asked, "What are you doing? How come you>didn't want to reply?" She said, "I'm nodding my head". "Ah?" I>could>n't believe my ears.>"I'm nodding my head" She replied loudly. I hang up the phone,>quickly>changed and took a taxi and rush to her place & press her doorbell.>During the moment when she opens the door, I hugged her tightly.

Leaf departure is because of Wind pursuit. Or because Tree didn't>ask>herto stay........


Moral...........

In love, we win very rarely, but when love is true, even if you>lose,>you still win just for having the tingle of loving someone more than>you>love yourself.
There comes a time when we stop loving someone, not because that>person>has stopped loving us but because we have found out that, they'd be>happier if we 'let go'.......

Why do we close our eyes when we sleep? When we cry? When we>imagine?>When we kiss?

This is because THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS IN THE WORLD ARE UNSEEN.

There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never>want>to leave behind, but keep in mind that letting go 'isn't' the end of the world. It's the beginning of a 'new' life. Happiness lies for those>who>cry,>those who are hurt, those who have searched and those who have>tried.>For>only>they can appreciate the importance of the people who have touched>our>lives.
A great love? It's when you shed tears and still you care for them,>it's>when they ignore you and still you long for them. It's when they>begin>to love another and yet you smile and say, "I'm happy for you." If>love>fails, set yourself free, let your heart 'spread' its wings and>'fly'>again.

Remember you may find love and lose it, but when love dies, you>never>have to die with it.>>>>The strongest people are not those who always win but those who>'stand'>back up when they fall. Somehow, along the course of life, you learn>about yourself and realize that there should never be regrets, only>a>lifelong appreciation of the choices you've made.

Loving is not how you forget but how you forgive, not how you listen>but>how you understand, not what you see but how you feel, and not how>you>let go but how you hold on.
It's more dangerous to weep inwardly rather than outwardly. Outward tears can be wiped away while secret tears scar forever..

It's best to wait for the one you want than settle for one that's>available. It's best to wait for the right one because life is too>short to waste on just someone .

Rain gods seem bless mumbai with incessant rains,yet another day i am trapped at home ,the horror that the black tuesday has entrenched in everbody's head doesn't seem to move out.4 working days has been lost..who do v blame ,the rains.
i think its high time mumbai gets back to its feet now..the pictures of bruised and battered mumbai is not worth watching...hoping life gets back to normal ASAP.
i guess rain gods shud bless places where vegetation is the main occupation,thats where it needs the most.at mumbai we have witnessed the heaviest rainfall of this century within a span of 10-12 hrs.
i wonder what more is left to be witnessed?????????

Mini Tsunami Strikes MUMBAI

Little did i know that on the day when i posted for my blog from my workplace i wud be spending my night there..
At around2:30 my mom gave me a call on my cell but as i waz busy did not receive it..soon 10-15 min later..we got a message from our TEAM LEADER telling us to go home quickly as heavy rains had already begun ,but by the time we were ready to move it was sheer impossible and water had already begun flooding the entire area..in fact the area where my office is located is one of the worst affected area in mumbai..and ac to the news channels around 80 people have died.for about 15 hrs the rains took no name fore stopping and there waz shoulder deep water everywhere.98% of the people at work stayed bck at office there waz no other alternative.we stayed in an environment one wud least imagine to no electricity drinking ,water to be specific coz there waz water around else where and no food.spend the entire nite playing games and finally waz exhausted as v were deprived of food.tried sleeping fixing up 2 chairs but in vain just cudn't ,then finally resorted to the carpet laid on the floor,definitely a nite to remember.
the water did recede but the transport facility waz not available and some of the areas was still in water.finally left office in the , they had arranged a bus but was fed up being stuck up ina traffic jam so got our feet.i walked 10 km and reached home wading thru knee deep water.......walked for 3hrs..ha dleft office at 2:30 and reached home at 8:30.on thing for sure people of mumbai are always in high spirits and the true face of humanity was seen during this disaster.people who were safe back at home got to the roads and helped out the people stranded in the water.
there were some classic scenes i have witnesed too like the one where 2 dogs were stuck up on top of a bus,few cars floating in the water ,a car which had one of its tyre in a drain and the other tyres in the air.i have heard of people being stranded inside a bus for 10 hrs.people from all walks of life were scene walking to their homes irrespective how far they lived some for even 50kms..
i thank my stars coz have reached home safely and pray that people who have been stranded at various locations get back to their respective homes as quickly as possible.
so have to go back for work tomorrow....
adieu..

Punctuality

Reached for work early so decided to put in a few thoughts,mainly why do always land up being so punctual for whatever i do or for that matter whereever i go,ever since i waz a child i have always been early to school,tutions,dance classes and for most of the opther activities ,while most of them have the habit of coming at the nik of the time or late.....being late makes me feel a bit insecure,being punctual has been de rigeur to me.
They generally say that if a person lives close to the place where they study or work they r the ones who generally reach late,but it has never been applicable to me,thanks to my parents who have instilled this very good habit in me.
The drawback here lies when am goin out alongwith my friendz,m always the first one to reach the destination and have to keep longing for their arrival.whatever m today happy to reach my workplace on time when not a single person has turned up so far when we ought to report at 9am.
after all MUMBAI mein late aajaana chalta hai.

let me get back to my work....
lotsa luv....
