Laghu Katha – III

After a genuine ingenious post, I am back to copying stuff and then garnishing them “ma way”. 🙂
I’d read this piece at some random place and was reminded of it while thinking about the third short story. I present you my version of the story.
—————–

There lived a girl at the hills. She met an accident at the age of 7 and lost her sight.
Sight, however, was not the only thing that she lost. The accident also took away her smile, her happiness… her confidence… and worst, her faith in everything… everyone.

She now preferred to be alone.
She loved the sound of rain as her companion. She used to sit near the window for hours, listening to the sounds of rain, frogs, birds… and trying to separate them. When it was not rainining, she would go to the hills and listen to the birds… and would sometimes… fly with them.

The hills, apparently, don’t just have birds. She met him one fine day… and became close in no time. He seemed to be the only one who seemed to understand her. She was the one who completed him.

The day he proposed her to marry him was the day of heavy rains. But she didn’t have any confidence left in her. Moreover, she realized that she didn’t trust him SO much. She put the condition, even heavier than the rains, “I’ll marry you the day I get my sight back”. She knew that’d never happen again.

Months passed. One cloudy day her brother informed that the doctor says that she might get her sight back, after a tiny-miny cornea transplant operation. The clear sky brought her sight back. She could now separate the water, the frogs, and the birds… with her eyes too.

A few days later he came to meet her and reminded her of the promise… but…. he…. he is blind too.
“Is that the reason he understood me…. could relate to me? I can… no… I cannot live with him. I wanted him to be my support… not to become his sight.”, she thought and… denied. It was not an easy decision, but she had to.

It was tough to differentiate and decide which was heavier, the rain pouring on the roof… or the rain pouring on his cheeks. He stood to leave, but turned around at the gate… looked straight at her… as if he could look deep into her eyes… and said with tear flowing down his eyes, “Take care of yourslef… and…… my eyes!”

Okay! I failed to make this one a Laghu Katha.
Apologies.

  1. yup ..this one reminds of a Japanese music video i saw. Story goes in the same line. Girl with eyesight meets guy with eyesight. While romancing around acid falls into her eyes(It was in photo studio). anyhoo, she goes blind. and has to undergo some transplant operation. She heals, has sight again , but cannot find her boyfriend. He is missing. After several days of looking she finally finds him. As she approaches him she realizes that he is blind. Cause he donated his eyes.

    Now the funny thing is while viewing this in college many of my friends cried while watching it. Me didn’t feel much .But had a much better solution. Why couldn’t he give one eye? They could c each other, love each other and even play pirates together (No , i didn’t come up with this idea alone. I needed a genius friend like Punnen)

  2. Why couldn’t he give one eye?
    That’s ecjactly what I’d would have thought if I was retard enough not to understand that THIS IS A FRIGGIN’ STORY..
    (heehee I love it when you give me a chance to prove that YOU ARE A JERK.. heehee):P

    I needed a genius friend like Punnen
    Whoa!
    Wait a sec. This is probably the first time when you said something nice about Punns. :-O

    keep writing ..

  4. loved your laghu kathas, and better late then never , welcome to B’lore.
    Shukriya 🙂

    1. Where u got these laghu kathas from?
    The first one appeared in a hindi Newspaper several years ago. The one I’ve written is my version of the same theme.

    2. How you got your own .org domain?
    And btw loved the lalit’s home page…

    I am not sure if I got the question completely. I am sure you wouldn’t ask something that would be answered as, “I registered it”. 🙂
    And yes… everyone loves Lalit’s site. He’s the dude 🙂

  5. Hey i was referring to the Music Video. Besides, cant help it if dumb people make dumb stories with not so logical endings.

    Hmm ..and can u wipe off that Genius line.. if he read this it would get to his head.

  6. Hey i was referring to the Music Video. Besides, cant help it if dumb people make dumb stories with not so logical endings.
    I completely agree with you.
    These music video people need to get training before making… no.. even attempting to make such videos. I am available to train btw.

    Hmm ..and can u wipe off that Genius line.. if he read this it would get to his head.
    I’d loved to do it, but:
    1. I don’t mind it geting it into his head.
    2. I am against all those MPAAs, RIAAs related things… (read censorship)
    3. I STILL HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN YOUR TRANSFORMERS ACT.

  7. Oh yeah .. transformers was brilliant if u appreciate fast paced action , with barely a story line, and lots of effects and of course the TRANSFORMERS

  8. http://www.suryanandan.net/
    He’s an aquaintance of Lalit… and you must have read, the site is on Lalit’s webspace (which is huge, as in an ocean). 🙂

    OOPs. I just remembered that I only told you about the first Laghu Katha.
    The second one was my ingenious product.
    The third one was again inspired from some random post on the net.

  9. @GENIUS Punnen:
    BTW…cheesy story Bips!
    Yup. Agreed. 😀
    Thus, the effort was to make everything symbolic… 🙂

    @Swenny:
    Now, every time you think of teasing a nice man (like me) with a movie (like Transformers), think and re-think of the consequences (like this one). 😛

  10. “and Swen saw that the light was good”… he slowly moves towards the source and realizes that… that it’s monitor with the site http://search.yahoo.com.
    He attains enlightment…… Yahoo-s for friends.

    He gets a superfast and super-refined single result:
    The GENIUS Punnen <echo> Punnen punnen punnen </echo>.

    Anyone wants to continue the story? 😛

  11. I’d rather not .Lets not start with the argument. YOu know how s it going to end. You weeping : “Google closed my account . Mammi , I want Google back. (Meanwhile i will pretend to like yahoo) . “
