You have read earlier - Anil meets an Indian girl Siya and her friend Rita in Venice again and he helps the girls by offering a free room in the hotel . Now further …..
“ Do you want dinner served in your room or all of us can get together here itself or would you like to go to the dining room? “ I asked before they left
“ What about you guys ? “
“ We are tired , we will get in this room . “
“ So do we . “
After an hour or so dinner for all four of us was served in my room . While dining I asked Siya “ Why is it always haunting my mind if I have seen you earlier . Do you remember seeing me earlier? “
“ Sorry , I never met you earlier except in the Vatican city . “
After finishing dinner , while Siya and Rita were leaving I asked Siya “ What about your tomorrow’s plan .“
“ We will leave for Pisa tomorrow at 12 noon by bus.”
“ I have booked a Gondola for the grand canal ride. If you like you can give us company . I will drop you to the proper ferry station nearest to the bus station .”
“ Ok. Thanks . Then we will check out with our backpacks . Good night guys .”
Next morning after our complimentary breakfast we left for a gondola ride . Siya and Rita both were with us for about two hours , then they parted with us saying “ Thanks a lot . see you guys .”
After spending one more day in Venice our next destination was Paris. We reached there the next day . After a short rest in the hotel we got a cab for the Eiffel tower .
Both of us were in queue for tickets for the Eiffel tower elevator. There was a huge queue of a few hundreds standing in the queue for their turn . In an hour we were also on the Eiffel tower watching the beauty of Paris . From the landing stages, one can embark for a discovery tour of Paris .All around, huge skyscapes, monumental palaces, esplanades and century-old trees , lovely gardens all provide an extraordinary panorama of the French capital . After the Eiffel visit we went for a cruise in the river Seine .
The River Seine flows below the Eiffel Tower. Both I and Alok were seated in the cruise
It was a surprise to see both the girls Siya and Rita already sitting in the cruise . We too moved to seats next to them . I said to Siya “ What a nice meeting once more. Where are you staying in Paris? If you need, we can help you here also . “
“ No thanks , we found a cheap hostel , rather two beds in the dormitory to be more precise .We are leaving for India late night today . “
After about an hour of cruising, all four of us got down . I asked them to have some refreshments in a nearby cafeteria . I asked Siya “ Is there something in our destiny , we are meeting again and again ?”
She said laughing “ Might be , might not be also . I am not an astrologer .”
“ But still I feel I have seen you earlier also but don’t remember where . Do you remember any encounter with me ?”
“ As I said earlier , I never met you . But why are you stuck up on earlier meetings? Think of our recent meetings . “
“ And also about future meetings in Hyderabad ? . “ Alok taunted
Siya and Riya both parted with us and flew back to India as per their plan .Next day I and Alok visited the famous Chateau of Versaille , the famous palace of kings of France .
I got a call from my client asking me to see them before leaving for India . We flew to Rome . My client gave me a sealed envelope about our draft deal and terms and conditions of the agreement to be signed jointly by both sides in Hyderabad .
We flew back to India the same night . Next day late in the afternoon I met my boss and handed over the envelope . Boss was extremely happy with our success . Usually on weekends I go to a particular hotel in Hyderabad . This hotel offers buffet breakfast in the morning for a limited period . Many young bachelors and even some couples come to this hotel and enjoy unlimited brunch . This Brunch at Rs. 99/ - only was a combo of both breakfast and lunch for me and for most people . My apartment was close to this hotel . One Sunday morning I along with Alok went to this hotel . Picked up our favorite eateries and took our seats . After a few minutes we heard a big laughter of girls emanating from a corner . Alok was first to sight Siya and said ‘ Look Anil , your girl is here . “
I also looked there and found Siya enjoying brunch with her friends . Then suddenly I could recall this is the place where I might have met her . I tried to wave my hands to Siya but she didn’t notice me .I wanted to attract her attention . I could have gone to her table with my plate but her table had only four chairs , all occupied by Siya and her friends . But fortunately Siya's friend drew her attention towards me, probably saying ‘ look at those two guys staring at us .’ This was an opportunity for me to wave at her and she too responded similarly .
I asked Siya to come to my table for a minute and she did surprisingly oblige me . She and Rita came to our table with their plates and said “ Hi , guys . So we are meeting once again . “
Now I remember I must have noticed you here on some weekends as this is my favorite place for brunch on weekends . Do you also visit here on weekends ?” I asked
“ Yes sometimes , but not on all weekends . “
“ Then you must have noticed me here , I am always here on weekends . “
“ Hey , you guys have a habit of looking at girls , it’s not our habit . “
“ Just chill , it’s natural . If you burst into laughter it can draw anyone’s attraction . And I know girls are too talkative and you guys also notice boys very much , I know . “
“ Might be , but not me . “ Siya said with a smile . She further said “ Okay , that’s it now can I join back my friends ? “
“ Yes , but spare another 2 minutes here .”
She nodded yes and I continued “ Why are we meeting again and again . Is there something common for both in our destiny ? “
“ As I said earlier , I don’t know .”
“ Okay now at least we know each other so can we meet again here next weekend . Can we exchange our contacts ? “
Finding her somewhat uncomfortable , I pulled my card from my wallet and said “ Well if you ever feel I deserve to hear from you in future , do call me ? “
Next Friday I got a call “ Hi , it’s Rita here . How are you ? “
“ I am good , nice to hear from you .”
“ We met last weekend in the hotel and you wanted Siya to come again. For your info Siya will be there alone on the weekend . I wanted you to meet her so I planned accordingly . But please don’t tell Siya that I gave you this info ? You can understand .”
“ Thanks Rita . You are a nice girl . You are already engaged otherwise ‘ Main tumhin par line maarta = मैं तुम्हीं पर लाइन मारता ‘ . '' Both laughed loudly on this
Next day I also planned to go solo and told Alok about my plan . At 9 am I was in the same hotel and sat at the corner table where Siya used to sit . Siya came a few minutes later looking towards her favorite spot which was already occupied by me. I waved at her and signaled to join me . Siya came and sat on the chair opposite to me.
“ So , we are together again . How are you ? “ I said
“ I am good . Why are you alone today , I am not seeing your buddy Alok today ? “
“ Ya , he had some work but you too are solo today ? “
“ Yep , Rita is meeting her BF .”
“ And so are you ? “
“ We are just new friends , no BF .”
“ Okay , when our friendship grows we may be BF and GF . “ I said .
“ Not yet thought about it .”
“ But why ? “
