“Honey, is it on?”
“What?” she shouted from across our room.
“The box i brought home last night.” I shouted back, my thoughts scrupulously wandering across every bizarre universe you can think of. Oh! universe? Wierd.
I could almost hear a faint sound of metal striking mind.
“I think the fuse’s burnt” she said with an air of expertise.
“Was this important?” she asked almost waiting to devour my answer.
“Yes, it was a gift.” i replied almost sadly.
“The aliens that visited our house last night. They said it was some kind of an idea box that was gifted to them by aliens that visited their house.”
“Ohh , i think we should pass it on too” she suggested.

There was so much to see, so much to feel.
It was haphazard, feeling lost amidst a crowd. When you have people everywhere but not the one who you expected anywhere.
It was a dance in motion, a synchronization that occured randomly with chaos. It was a battlefield and a monastery.
Standing there , i felt i was a part of something greater. Something far more simpler.
It felt i was finally a part of humanity.

“What happened?” she asked through the window.
“Nothing.. dear” . The hesitation was apparent in my voice.
” Okay, i will wait” she said.
I knew i couldn’t hold much longer. The chairs opposite me were scattered. I was on the floor with my hand covering my head. The chairs were empty and so was my mind.
“It’s..it’s..”. Before i could complete she was beside me holding my hand. “it’s ok” she whispered, her words soothing the ache in me.
“My mind’s empty, i am blank ” i spit it out looking her way in tears.
She smiled. And in that moment i forgot the world existed.

It’s said you cannot trap a heart in a place because only a heart has the freedom to roam the world freely.
And yet for Bala it was different. His heart was trapped in his room.
Every instrument there called out for him. They made him forget food, sleep even.
His friends and family wondered what good he was up to until, until the day he died.
One of his friend put up his composition on the internet.
It changed everything. It changed Music.
It created a Legacy.
Dana looked at the sky and however hard she tried, her eyes were transfixed there.
Four mighty majestic birds owned the sky creating patterns that made her spirit strong. As they maneuvered along the sky chasing each other and falling back, she felt a strange sense of feelings chase her own heart.
Little Dana looked at her brother who was watching them as well and wondered if even he felt what she was going through.
As the birds soared higher than her eyes could see and came down one last time she knew it had captured her spirit.
She knew she wanted to be the ones who flew them. She wondered what they called them.
Little did she knew she would be the first woman pilot to fly a fighter plane.

“I want that” she said looking at this fantastic house covered by green. It wasn’t the angle the house was in or the way it was built, there was something about this house that made it difficult to describe.
I looked at her eyes and at that moment decided i would give anything to go away from this world and retreat there.
I couldn’t change a lot of things but i could change us.
It was her peace that was important.
Peace at the cost of happiness? Certainly.
I vowed we would run, literally too.

As i looked out of the window my first thought was “WOW!!”. After coming back to my senses a while later i started wondering about how my life would have been if we had stayed together.
Some choices are hard to make but some are harder to implement , God! i missed her.
I couldn’t change the past but i smiled at the thought of seeing her in a few hours.
If someone asked me,that moment what true beauty really is i would tell it is meeting your true love after a long time.
And of course tell the fool to look out of the window.
