Men in my Life- I

I had five minutes to catch my train. I had a heavy suit case
in one hand hand, my hand bag in another. Plus a parcel of
my wud-be-dinner. I was climbing the stairs on this
foot-over bridge to the other platform. My luggage was
almost kiling me. And that showed on my face.

There was a gentleman accompanying me. He was a tall, fair
and gentle man. Worthy and nice. He was supposed to see me
off in my coach and rush to his. In a span of fast reducing
seconds now.

He saw me struggling with my bags and all. Five steps ahead
of me, he waited.

"Need help?"
"No, I am fine."

We drag two more steps.

"Gimme something"
"Ah? No no..it's okay"

I caught up with him. And when I was right beside him, he
took the packet of chowmein from my hands.
I was so much in splits laughing and laughing and laughing.
But all inside my mind. I had one suit case..a bag to add to that,
on my frail shoulders. But the packet of chowmein was all he
could do to lessen my burden.

And I am still in splits laughing. Wondering about the insignificance
of the moment we shared. The stupidity of it. Of me coming back
and telling about it to my friends. And finally writing it down. Here.

how abt this thought,
there is a feeling in a woman, if a man can do it, i too can deal.. with this heavy suitcase.Helping u carry the suitcase would have hurted ur ego.so as an intelligent man he did not let ur self confidence go down and as well helped u.
i think this is the genX funda :)

well think of it this way: may be he took the package of food from your hand because you refused for his help making him think that you feel insecure about handing him your belongings... so food was insignificant, and he did what he could to help you.

that is one possibility right? i dont think he would be that stupid or that selfish :-)

@ smruti
sumtyms one gets so tired of tending to the single woman's inflated ego & wants to be pampered...only some tall n fair gentlemen dont understand.. :P

@ raaji
definitely a possibility, but he wasnt a total strnger, wudnt hv run away wid ma luggage i know :O whtever hpned ws in the spur of an insignificnt moment, a bout of foolishness which shows in your mannerisms when you're with a person who is not totally a frnd..

Imagine it....
Being a gentleman, he's nervous in a girl's company...Somehow he gathered courage to ask yo if you needed help....you refused outright....he's even more nervous....he slows down so that yu come near him....now he's even more nervous....
going by a simple logic ..you would have held your heavy suitcase in one hand and dragging it on the floor...and the back is on your shoulders ....the chowmein packet was in between your fingers....

AS he was eager to help, he had to make the fastest move, grab the nearest thing...the chowmein packet....

And dear lady, you laugh at a gentleman :P

wildflower said...

@ abhishek
yeah probably :P

@ praneet
why would a gentleman like him be nervous in the company of a girl, and that too a girl like me? :P
and well this was my way of preservin that moment. if i made fun of him, pardon me, but i almost had a crush on him /.. :D
