I had never imagined that love can happen in virtual world also.
Once, while I was checking my face book newsfeed a friend suggestion came for a girl Samaira Sengupta
We had around 57 mutual friends. Her profile picture was with red saree, open hair and her glasses.
I send her the friend request.
Every day Iused to check that whether she had accepted my friend request but almost for 1 month it was pending.
Then suddenly one day while I was checking I noticed that she had accepted my friend request.
But I thought that she would leave a text asking about me or something else. But there was nothing. I waited for another 5days. But now I was determined that I would text her.
Me: Hi, Arivaan here. How are you?
And I got the reply almost some 15days later.
Samaira: Hi, Samaira here. I’m so sorry I’m
veryirregular in face book. So
I checked her message in the evening and again she was not there.
I realised that our conversations would continue in this way so we would never get to know each other.
I just replied her: it’s ok princess. I can
Within 2days she replied: Hi, thanks for
getting my point of view
I was online and suddenly the message box appeared in my office computer during the lunch break.
Me: So are you a Bengali?
She: Yes and you?
Me: Punjabi and so what you do? Say somethingabout you.
She: Self introduction? Ok let me think. I’m a
Bengali girl from Kolkata studying final year.
What else you want to know?
Me: Woww which stream?
She: Geography honours.
Me: Are you single?
She: Yes happily single.
She: Sorry can’t get you. Why for what?
Me: Why youare happily single?
She: Because I don’t want any relationship
and I have no regrets so I’m happy.
Me: Ohk cool. So?
She: Need to logout because it’s already late
and I need to have my lunch.
Me: Then when can we talk?
She: Next when I will be online.
And our conversations used to be carried out like this without any continuation.
Me: We completed 1month of our friendship
and we had no continuous conversations
She: I’m really sorry I’m not regular in
Me: Yeah I know but somewhere you must be
She: Yes, I’m regular in WhatsApp, mail, hike,
Almost 3months passed.
On 31st DecemberI asked her: What are you
She: Is there any occasion?
Me: The year is going to end? Aren’t you
She: Yess. But what’s your occasion?
Me: My birthday
She: Oops, am so sorry I don’t know. Anyways happy birthday so treat to Banta hain and I would ofcourse come with a gift.
Me: So come to Gurgaon. And I need my gift.
She: What’s your demand?
Me: First promise me you won’t say no.
She: ok I wouldn’t say no
Me: Your number, please don’t say no.
She: ok it’s your birthday gift.
And she texted me her number
Me: thank you.
She: Bye. Going for lunch.
I instantly texted in her WhatsApp number
Me: Yes princess.
She: Catch you after lunch.
Me: Ok princess
She: Whyyou call me princess always?
Me: I feel like calling you princess.
Kisi princess se kaam thodi ho?
She: Oh really?
Me: Of course. You know Red is my favourite Colour
Me: Yours is also red?
She: No not at all. Youare lucky then both my
facebook and WhatsApp dp is in red colour.
He: I loved them. Even I have commented in your face book dp.
She: I haven’t noticed.
And our conversations continued
She: How was your celebration?
Me: Very good but I missed you I wish I could
take you in my party with your parent’s permission.
She: Come to Kolkata I would join you for sure
Me: Haahaaa I wish I could. Tomorrow I had
office need to sleep. Bye
She: Sure. Sleep but what do you do?
Me: Ohho I haven’t introduced myself. I work
in a Florida based company as the Senior HR Executive
She: Wow that sounds great. Goodnight
Once I told her that I like her in fact I love her but she said that she don’t want to be in relationship.
So further I never said her about my feelings anymore
We became good friends and we share everything.
Slowly she introduced me with her friends and vice versa.
We were deep into our friendship but I couldn’t realise that when she had felt for me.
But neither had she ever said anything nor I asked her again.
In the month of March it was her final year exams and after her exams she and her friends were planning for a long trip because they all were frustrated of studying and giving exams for continuous 2 months.
So they decided to go Delhi first and from there to Gurgaon. The days to stay in Gurgaon was not decided.
She: What are the places we can visit in Gurgaon?
Me: You can visit me, my soul, my heart, my room.
She: Shut up Arivaan
Me: Come on Sam ( Samaira was too long to call so I started calling her Sam) you just come to Gurgaon rest is my duty.
I had made a lot of plan in my mind but never gave her any hint by any mistake because she is intelligent enough to catch my tricks.
During her exams her schedules were pathetic so I disturbed her less. I already had her routine so that her studies did not get hampered.
After the exams she went to Mumbai to stay with her cousins for almost 1month.
On 5th may they were set for the Trip. They reached Delhiand stayed for some days there and they reached Gurgaon on 10th of May.
I went to pick them up and I have arranged a room for rent beside my apartment
We never met each other so I was a bit confused that whether she will rectify me or not.
Suddenly my phone was ringing andSamaira calling
She: Turn around
Me: Hi. What? Oh. Whereareyou?
She: Arivaan turn around
I turned around and saw her with a Rust colour
T-shirt and blue jeans and floral print scarf with her glasses and a top knot.
I was starring at her
She came near me and winked and broke my concentration
Me: You recognised me?
She: Do you think I m blind?
Me: No you are beautiful
She smiled and said: Let’s go
Me: We need to take a cab and some of you
can come with me in my car.
She: Guys lets go and will do the introduction
session after we reach home
We are 8 of us.
Me: You are going with me right?
She: Let me think, ok I will go.
We reached the home
She: Wow nice choice.
Me: Thank you. Youpeople make yourself comfortable and I will give all the information by evening
She: Arivaan you know everyone I guess
Me: Yeah I know everyone we r the people of
21st century and face book is there. By
the way you said 9 of you are coming
then Who’s missing?
She: Rishabh, he ditched us at the last moment
Me: Ohhoo. It’s ok. You guys get fresh up and meet you people within 2hours. I know a
good place for lunch. And boys it’s only
one washroom here if you want you can use mine.
Gourav: I guess it’s a good option but how far is your home?
Me: It’s just the next apartment
Samaira: Then you guys go to his room and let the ladies enjoy here
Raghav: You girls are so mean.
Anika: Go guys.
Abhirup: guys leave them. Let’s go.
Samaira: see you people soon.
After almost 2hours the boys were done so just to check whether the girls are done or not we called the girls
Me: Hi, Sam are you guys done?
From the other side of the phone: it’s Elina
here. We need 1hour more
Me: it’s really fine. Take your time.
Raghav snatched the phone: we are hungry
Elina: Even we are. But Pratibha didn’t even
Got the chance to use washroom
Within an hour the girls were ready and the called us
Samaira: Yes Arivaan we are done.
Me: You guys come downstairs we are alreadywaiting.
All d girls were well dressed but Sam was looking stunning
She wore a long sleeveless top of blue colour and a black jeans with a pony tail and her all time glasses.
Me: You are looking stunning
Sam: Oh really? Thank you
Aisa: We are very hungry. Where to go?
Me: There is a Chinese restaurant.
Me: 5-7mins walking
We reached the restaurant
And everyone ordered food and was full as all were hungry
Pratibha: Guys today I won’t b able to go somewhere. I need rest
Anika: So even me
Sam: Everyone should sleep as all are tired
Gourav: Let’s sit and hangout at our place
Me and Sam simultaneously: That’s a good
So we all moved to our room
And everyone changed their dresses and wore their night outfits even I went to my room to wear trousers.
I was even impressed by her floral print trouser yellow t-shirt and her top knot and glasses.
We all had a lot of gossips and I had not realised for once that they are her friends.
We went to the same restaurant for dinner
Me: If you guys want you can sleep with me.
As I m on a holiday of 4days more.
Sam: Holiday for what?
Me: You guys are coming and how could I
Leave you guys alone?
Sam: But no need we can manage
Me: If you people don’t want me to join you
guys then its fine but I had already
Sam: Shut up
Abhirup: We people are coming to sleep with
Ayu: But guys it’s our trip. How could you
people ditch us?
Abhirup: Chill guys we need some boys
Elina: Good even we also need privacy for our
The girls went to their room and 3 boys came with me.
And whole night we spend talking
Abhirup: You like Sam right?
Me: Yes but how do you know
Gourav: Even she likes you we all know but
she would not confess that
Raghav: but it’s that you people can’t confess
Me: I tried to say her even I said her that I like
her but she replied that she don’t want
Gourav: We know that because she thinks
that relationshipsare extra burden
Raghav: So if u has to be in a relationship
with her you have to take care of that
Abhirup: She is a self dependent girl and she
Needs her space. At least give her
that much of space and liberty
Me: I know all these. But I don’t want to lose her friendship for getting her relationship
Raghav: Why don’t u take her for a date?
Me: No no she won’t
Abhirup: It’s our duty to confess her
and i guess the girls were also awake because we all woke up late next day.
After breakfast we went to move around here and there and returned around 8. 30pm.
Then around 10pm we all had our dinner and that day the boys went to stay with d girls.
Ayu: You people with us?
Elina: Why you people don’t need boy’s privacy?
Sam: Arivaan take them
Gourav said something in Anika’s ear and after that no one said a single word.
Next morning when we met for breakfast
Abhirup: What you are going to give us?
Me: She agreed?
Abhirup: Told you it’s our responsibility
Gourav: Today let the girls give her tips to
look beautiful and we would suggest
I couldn’t look at her while having breakfast
After breakfast when we were going to my room
Me (shit why she is calling): yes
Sam: come here
Sam: nothing. Bye. Seeyou in the evening
For the whole day no one uttered a single word for lunch and her friends planned the date under a open sky at night
Me: she will hit me. If at 9pm in the night I
would take her to the date.
Abhirup: yes and she would go.
Gourav: We have confessed her at that level
- 50pm all the boys were waiting downstairs for the girls to come down as they planned to send us on a date and even they will hangout for the whole night
The girls were coming down and all were looking gorgeous but the moment I saw Sam my eyes got sticked to her
She wore a red knee length shirt style dress with red heels, gorgeous earrings, open hair, her glasses, maroon lipstick, and white wrist watch.
I went near her and said: I never saw such a
beautiful girl in my life.
You are really my princess.
Sam: oh really? Even you are looking very handsome
Elina: will u guys go or will stand here and
complement each other?
Me: yeah yeah. Shall we?
Then we reached the spot
The area was under the open sky, orchids everywhere and rose carpet and a soft music in the background.
Sam: wow the place is so beautiful
Me: you liked it?
Sam: I loved it.
Me: let’s go and sit
Sam: wow purple table cloth?
Me:yeah your favourite colour.
Cool breeze was flowing and she was enjoying it
Sam: I never knew that dates are so Wonderful
Me: will you please dance with me?
Sam: one condition. SRK songs.
Me: sure. Tuje dekha to ye jana sanam
Suraj hua maddham Janam janam Gerua Zaalima
All were played one after the other
We were dancing
I was hypnotised by her beauty.
Then after having dinner while having deserts she was just enjoying the atmosphere.
I sat on my knees
Me: Miss Samaira Sengupta I fell for you from the day I saw you.
Will you be my girlfriend?
I know u need your space and my relationship would never a burden to you.
Sam (shocked). She had no words to say.
Me: no need to answer I just don’t want to lose you.
Somewhere from behind everyone said chorously Sam say “yes”
Sam: you people?
Anika: yes us
Ayu: Sam say yes.
Gourav: Arivaan don’t get up until and unless
She says yes
Me: will you?
Everyone shouted “wooowww”
I hugged her and even she and I kissed her on her forehead and said
“ my relationship would never be a burden to you and you will lead the life that you were living only my designation had changed from a good friend to your life partner but rather than that everything else is Same and I know what a Forehead kiss means to a girl. I just want to be with you at any cost. I love you Samaira”
She just smiled and hugged me
After the date they had extended the trip in Gurgaon for 2days more and cancelled the rest of the trip.
After she returned from the trip we both informed our families and our families agreed.
We both are focused with our careers. We give each other enough time and space and liberty.
I have learned a thing from her
“Relationships were, are and will always be about Understandings and Bonding”
