Well, idhu varai naan ezhudina short stories ellam fiction… I got a chance to write a real, on going love story- A Pakka Namba aathu fresh and hot filter coffee madri story, of my friends Revathi and Ashwin….. Naangal Whatsapp la pesindu irukarche, Revathi avalodu Love story sonna, which I found to be worthy enough, to be on my blog…. Come on, with me, let us travel to Chennai, with a cup of nice hot filter kaapi and a plate full of Bhajjis and thottuka thengai chutney…..
Chennai – 2005:
Chennai – A busy city, rich in our culture, tradition and yes, fully filled with namba Tambrahms….. Chennai MaaNagarathula oru area, Kolathur, anga in a cute yet Traditional Iyengar household, lives Revathi…. Daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Santhanam….
Revathiiiiiiiiiiiii………………kelambiyaacha ma?? School ku late aagardhu, inniki noku exam vera….
Idho varen Amma……
Revathi, a 9th grader, smart, sweet, chirpy, bubbly- yet very kind girl, studies in Kulapathi Dr. BalaKrishna School….
Revathi, final exam daane, you’ll do really well, Hayagrivar unna kaapathuvar, tension eduthukade..Naan unakaaga vendikaren….
Revathi’s appa, Mr. Santhanam says looking at his little girl tensed at the breakfast table.
Meanwhile, In Revathi’s mind “ Haiyo, exam ellaam periya prachanaiye illai Appa…Indha Ashwin paiyan mela naan vechrukardhu nijama ve love ah, illai verum attraction ah, onnume puriyaliye….”
Paathela makkale, indha 9th grader mind la enna iruku nu? 😛
Kulapathi Dr. S. Balakrishna Joshi School – Chennai – May 2005 :
Ella kadhai layum hero entry super ah, dashing ah irukum, indha kadhai la twist paarungo….
Revathi reaches school…. “ Revathi, yaaru ma kozhandei, andha paiyan, ipidi sandai podaran, NARAYANA, poonool vera teriyardhu shirt lerndhu, ipidi sandai podaran, avaaloda laam nee friendship eh vechika koodadhu, seriya ma? Chamatha exam ezhuditu vaa,last exam verai, sheekrama mudichutu aathuku vaa, We’ll go to Parthasarathy Perumal Koil and from there, a nice Dinner at Saravana Bhavan. ok? ”
“Seri Appa, 🙂 ”
Meanwhile Revathi’s mind voice , “Appa Ipidi elaam bomb podaraangale, haiyo…. Appa, ivan daan appa Ashwin, I like him Appa…. Ippove neengal ipidi chonna epidi paa? NARAYANAAAA….. 😦 ”
Revathi, Chamatha finished her 9th grade with a decent score of 95.5% and entered into 10th grade….
It all started in their 10th grade… Revathi’s feelings for Ashwin Iyer grew day by day…. She liked his Morattu Kaalai temperment, His Short temper, his smile, his talks,… Every thing he did, attracted Revathi, even the way he wrote notes attracted her….
During class hours Revathi would stare at Ashwin silently from the corner of her eye, just to ensure he is in the class…. She even got caught and scolded by her Teachers once or twice for not being attentive in class….
“Who cares, I like looking at Ashwin, I will look at him, classes and lessons eppidiyo pogattum” saying so in her mind, Revathi chuckled, when her Tamil Teacher was scolding her…. 😀 😀 😀
All over her 10th grade, Revathi only thought about Ashwin, apart from studies. She still doubted if this was actually the right age to fall in love…. The academic year passed on…. It was in the Margazhi Maasam, Revathi realised she was Actually in love with Ashwin…. Thoughts about separating from Ashwin after 10th grade, actually gave a lot of pain to Revathi’s heart… She wanted to convey it to her guy, she thought various tricks including writing a note to him, nothing worked out….
“I am going to propose Ashwin, come what may, I don’t care, I don’t want to lose him…At any cost, I will propose him” … Revathi thought for herself…
Revathi had a feeling of butterflies in her stomach, nervousness crept, her hands shivered, her big round eyes closed out of shyness and the 16 yr old walked straight to Ashwin, on the last day of their 10th boards and she confessed her love for him….
Ashwin did not reply with a yes or no, he just smiled and walked away with friends…. This left her in a dilemma…..
It was months after Revathi confessed her feelings to Ashwin… She awaited his reply everyday…. Fact was, he moved on to a residential school, for his 11th and 12th grades…. Revathi worked hard and topped in her class….. Everyday, atleast once, she saw her 10th class photo, not to see her friends, but Ashwin’s face….
Both, Revathi and Ashwin lost contact with each other….
Revathi, for 2 years of her high schooling, lived all the memories she had at school, she laughed thinking about the mischief he did at school and sometimes, tears rolled on her cheeks, fearing whether Ashwin actually forgot her…. She had mixed emotions…there wasn’t a single day she did not think about Ashwin…. Revathi sometimes dreamt as if Ashwin came down to her place and accepted her love… She even dreamt about Ashwin getting married to her…. Kanavula Revathi even sang Duets and all…. 😛
When ever she felt low, Revathi would convince herself that Ashwin will come back to her, some day….
Revathi finished her 12th with a good grade and her appa gifted her a mobile phone….
Days passed, one fine day, Revathi got Ashwin’s contact… They spoke to each other via messages, innumerable phone calls…..
A month passed… Revathi’s confidence grew on Aswin, she still, did have a lot of confusions…. I guess, she even asked him if he actually had any girl friends and things like that 😉
It was on 27th May 2008, that Revathi’s love succeeded … Ashwin accepted the Love Revathi had (she still does, a lot in fact 😛 ) for him…4 years, of Reva’s love for Ashwin finally gave fruits….. Aprom ennachu? Neku teriyadhu….. But yes, Reva had tears of Anandam…. “Anandam Anandam , Aanandame….. Revz’ love got Accepted yaay…” ❤ ❤
It has been 6 yrs of their love, it is growing stronger and much stronger…. Let us all pray that Revathi Santhanam becomes Mrs. Revathi Ashwin soon…. 🙂
Revz and Ashwin , I hope you guys liked this (Obviously, it is your own love story), but still… ❤ ❤ ❤
Now, time for Author’s note, I hope you still have a few sips of Kaapi and a few Bhajjis on your plate…. Idha padichunde saapdungo, saaptunde padeengo 😛
Friends, this true story teaches many things to us,
1. Love has no age,
2. True and Strong love never fails,
3. If marriages are made in heaven, the partners are chosen by God, If your love is very strong, even God himself can never separate…even if there is a small separation, Love surely brings them together….
True love is absolutely unconditional, there will be no expectations or demands…. Well, this message I am giving is not only for the lovers, people who have got an arranged marriage done are also lovers…. There might be several mis-understandings, minor issues, fights and such things between each other…. Learn to adjust, have strong faith in your love for your better half… Trust me friends, your life, even with many highs and lows, will run as smooth as eating an Ice cream….
Live , Share and Spread love…. 🙂 😀 ❤
