I don’t know from where to begin and what to write at first. But then I let my fingers and mind go in sync with each others to pen down this post. It was 22nd May, 2016 and I was in train travelling to Bengaluru from Bidar. I was reading from my kindle that’s when my gal called to talk as we haven’t spoke from coupe of days. We were speaking casually when she informed to pick up a packet from her cousin who is coming to station (to pick his parents). I was bit taken back on hearing those words so asked again what is it?what it contains? But she didn’t disclose and said to wait till morning. It seemed ages before sun rose up and I was waiting for the train to stop at station. Eventually the train stopped and her cousin handed over the packet to me.
Once I was in cab going to my room, I called her up and asked whether I can open it or not, to which she said YES. I opened it and was very deeply touched with the gift. It was such a beautiful and cute handmade birthday card with her unspoken words written on it. It brought tears to my eyes. I called her up and expressed my feelings on seeing the gift. That’s when she said, it’s a week of surprises.
Surprise 2: Pizza at office
It was Tuesday and as usual working day for both of us. I was in middle of some work when she asked when are you going for lunch?(She asks me everyday so wasn’t surprised) to which i replied not hungry. Little did I know that she had ordered pizza for me with the help of my close friend MEER. What was appealing and nice of her was she ordered even for my friends.
Surprise 3: karaoke song
I woke up in the morning and called her to check whether she woke up or not. We spoke for few minutes and disconnected the cal to get ready. After a while, I get a voice note in whats app. I thought some kind of motivational or funny voice note but I was wrong. It was a beautiful song ‘chahu mein aana’ sang by her from the movie AASHIQUI 2. I was deeply moved because I have asked numerous times to sing at least a line of any songs but she didn’t. I was laughing and smiling by listening to her voice, it was fun but what connected more was her attempt to make me happy.
Surprise 4: Dinner date
It was fourth day and I was waiting for today’s surprise. I called her up many a times and checked for it. After lots of persuasion, she said “she will meet me today”. It was quite common that we meet, I said. It was evening time and I made a call to her just to talk for few minutes. While talking to me, she sent me a message which had today’s surprise. It was a dinner date at THE PERMIT ROOM. She reached there few minutes back and was looking stunningly beautiful in green denim skirt. We reached there around 8.40 PM and seated at top floor. We tried various food items and of all of them, Iyengar Egg Puff was different and delicious. We finished our dinner and headed back to our room around 10.30 PM.
Surprise 5: A card and loads of chocolates
She had come to my home to spend sometime with me the other day. She left to her office in the morning directly from my home. As it was early in the morning, I was busy getting ready to go to office. After finishing everything and was about to leave, I opened my drawer to pick up my watch and what I saw was today’s surprise. It was a greeting card with loads of chocolates.
I wasn’t in good mood from past week due to some problems so decided to go somewhere calm and away from everyone to relax and give a break from my regular life. We checked and book Tusk and Dawn jungle resort near SAKLESHPUR. We had a relaxing and rejuvenating evening with camp fire and nice dinner. It was bed time and I was getting ready to sleep on my bed, when she from nowhere brought a gift. I was dumb shocked as I remember she didn’t carry much luggage (only one backpack). When opened, there was decorative items with a small greeting card. I was literally shaking all decorative items to check if they contained something but nothing was inside them. My happiness reached another level when she took a square box out of nowhere. When opened, I saw one of my favourite watch in my hand. A FOSSIL watch.
Surprise 7: Coffee cake
7th day, the last day of the week and last day of surprise. We were back to Bangalore and had been to jewellery shop to take gift for her friend. When we were back to my home, my roomies (Lokesh & Vijay), Shrinivas and Preeti had come to celebrate my birthday. I expected a normal flavor cake but it turned out to be a special cake, it was a COFFEE CAKE.
This how my week ended with loads of surprises, love and happiness :). Thank you for making it so special.
