My day with Lokesh…

Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink!! This is the caption I wanted to give for this post, but since it seemed longer than the title, I decided on not making it look that funny! So to reveal the reason behind this caption, you have got no other go, but to follow all the upcoming posts.

Now..all you people out there starting to read my post, would have various questions popping up in your mind like..Who is this guy Lokesh? What is all this sudden hype for? Something fishy? I always had a doubt on this girl..Is she going out with him or what? And my dear dear relatives, staring at this post, totally puzzled and worried..waiting to call up my parents to advice them on taking EXTRA care of me(read *ask extra questions about everything done* )
Well, well, well..stop right there..don’t let your imaginations get too far and, please get on with reading this post..

July 9, 2010..this is the day I met this guy and spent more than half of my day with him.
How do I know him? What is he to me? Hmm..c’mon..just move on!!
Lokesh, A guy who is doing his Masters in Social Work in Chennai.
Hmm..this day didn’t have a very great start. It was just a usual, boring, sleepy morning except for the small accident I met with, by slamming my bedroom door against my finger (A small accident which made me look at my minutely swollen fore finger for more than an hour and cry out to everyone possible..ya ya I know..i am a little fussy!!) Inspite of all this ‘commotion’ I headed on to meet my new friend Lokesh.

Confirming with Lokesh about the plans, I left home in a hurry hoping not to lose my ‘favorite window seat’ in the 23C bus.But like always..Man proposes,God disposes!! I stood all the way till Egmore and was fully squeezed and crushed..Thanks to our Chennai buses and some of the desperate people who will do ANYTHING to get a seat!! I finally made my way out and got down with this *Oh My God, Akshaya,You really deserve this for being on the phone for 1 hour and not getting ready * look on my face.I reached the place on time (in spite of being on the phone for an hour!!) and waited for him to come. After around a solid five minutes, there he was, moving towards everyone and staring at them to get a poor glimpse of their faces. This medium-height, a few extra pounds, dark, 20 year old Lokesh is an ungifted and unlucky child of god..who unlike you and me is visually impaired and needs people like us to support him..if not by money, at least physically like being his scribe!!
