I stood and saw the uncles leaving. Everyone signaling that they are not going my way.
I waited and went on with my requests. A girl in her activa neared by.
I asked and no one stopped. So much of thought and nothing happened.
Wait. Something happened. A girl stopped. She took her time to stop the bike.
I ran to her and said, 'thank you.'
'Where do you have to go?'
'Where are you going?'
'Where is it?'
'Near Lumbini park.'
'What is it about?'
'So what do you do??,' asked the girl.
'I'm in Rajasthan working there.'
'Working? You look like a student re.' said the girl
'Well, that's a compliment,' I smiled and continued the conversation. Getting to know each other, we realized, she belongs to the place where I'm currently living, Sirohi.
'What a coincidence!' we thought and were happy to meet in such circumstances.
We shared what we love to do and the conversations went on sharing our passion and interests.
We also spoke about the life of women at the place I live in especially. I could relate since I've been there. She could share it since she has seen it all at her place. It was a meaningful conversation.
