Memory of a quirky Valentine’s Day

One of my friends called me up a few moments back . Besides exchanging news of what is happening in personal life , we talked about some memories of our educcation life too. One of our friends has tied the recently . He was waiting for his beloved for the past four years . Both of them Sanju and his girlfriend never behaved like lovers during out life at university . Sanju was always telling her to make a love affair stable we first need to settle down our lives . If I cannot manage to get a decent job after studies , how could you maary me . It will create huge problem for your parents to accept me as their son in law . Apora could only take a deep breath after listening to Sanju , we all teased them , for Sanju’s thoughtfulness . He was a person at heart , but he kind of afraid to take any bold decision in life . And Apora always told him that “At least tell me that you love me , so that I can wait for you .”


Days past and Sanju joined a institute where he worked as an honorary teacher . Apora fumed at his decision but could not change his decision . Sanju is a laidback kind of guy and was happy with this job . Apora left Assam and joined a company in Delhi . Sanju once came to meet her , after getting recovered from a fatal injury in a road accident . None of our friends knew what they talked , but after that Apora sounded much happier when I talked to her over phone .

Sanju went back to Assam . This time he had changed much and took up a better job . We all are happy for him . Some months back he phoned all his friends asking can anyone provide him the cell number of Apora . He told me that Apora told him that she can wait for her till the end of 2007 . The day he called me was 20th of december . Now he thinks positively and want to tell her about his decision . I am amuzed to hear the tension in his voice . I told him , that I will pray to God that you could reach her before the ultimatum .

But alas , none of us could contact Apora she has changed her number and did not inform any one of us . When I talked to her last time her usual jolly voice was changed to a cynical one . From her words I feel that she had lost faith upon love or emotions , clearly I could sense her disbelief on the institution of marriage .

Now my friend told me that Sanju got married on tenth of february 2008 . And it is a love marriage !! I remember the valentine’s day we celebrated in our classroom , which was arranged by Sanju , he was our class representative . He arranged a cake anf flowers and arranged a competition among us , we have to describe our idea of first love most beautifully . Everyone did , including Apora and Sanju stayed away from the competition saying that he is the judge of the competition . One girl who was married after six years of courship was announced the winner . We had some music and the cake . And the next day Sanju had a hearty apprehension from the head of the department for arranging valentine’s day in the classroom !

    Why Sanju behaved like that with Apora I am unable to understand. He seems to be flexible.Let Apora fight back the situation. What is she doing now? Encourage her to overcome her emotion.
