a dream........ a nightmare

The Door bell rang, rang it again. rubbing her dreamy eyes she  wondered , who might be there, so early in the morning. She lazily opened the door. There were five men in impeccable uniform, stars shining in glory of morning sun on their shoulders. They were officers of Indian Air force. But why were they here so early in the morning. Till now she had known only one among them, the one whom she loved, Sudhir. All memories rushed to her mind and all sort of bad thoughts started pouring in. With sweat on forehead she asked them & got to know they were Sudhir's colleagues.


Old memories came crashing like she was seeing a movie. Sudhir, an Indian Airforce officer & Anamika were deeply in love with each other, nurturing & taking care of each other like best Friends, like lovers, even like parents. Every second without him she used to wait for him, yearn for his arms. Anamika has just been simple normal girl enjoying his company, visualizing her future with him, his love, care & concerns meant the world to her. She used to write her name with his surname & then used tease herself for that. The future as his wife was endearing & comforting. Sudhir also reciprocated giving her love, care & respect she deserved in his life.

They never imagined that a day will arrive when they will be stranger to each other. The day came, out of parental pressure, they decided to never see each other in future. it was painful yet unavoidable. they who were made for each other, became two separate individuals now. Anamika slowly but certainly started taking things in her stride & learnt to live life all alone, there was no more drama in her life, no more love, no more uninhibited zeal, only remark and a lesson of life learnt.

she didn't have time to wipe her tears when she heard a loud voice Miss. Anamika....can you hear us....Are you okay..!! Everything vanished as she came to present, & saw a uniform in a bag. one of officer told her that Sudhir got Martyrdom while fighting insurgents in Kashmir. Her head started dizzying...and her heart started pondering...  as she breakdown on ground crying loudly. After a little while one of the officers told her that it was his last wish that the Uniform must be handed over to you. She remembered asking him again and again to see him in Uniform, give a uniform pic to her. but he always denied stating security reasons. He died, but fulfilled her wish,... She hold the uniform and hugged it imagining the man it adored, the man she loved, she can't see anything. As the world started disappearing, she wanted to shout to ask why this happen to her, her throat started choking and ...

She woke up in her bed with sweat holes in her forehead. So....it was a dream...her heart was still pounding and though she hadn't called him in years...now she called him. He was sleeping and so picked up the call with seeing the number and said "Hello". She heard, got confirmed he is well and disconnected the call. So it was actually a dream ...a bad dream....a nightmare.




Great People.. Love You All :)
