This is Saba’s love story in its various shades…its nuances. Saba, a shy girl sought out by Sameer, to be his sweetheart–sought out from the bunch of girls he always found her with, out of the world of her shyness, her near reclusiveness.
Of how Sameer had fallen for her (well, almost) the first time he had set eyes on her–a dimpled smile, an unfathomable depth in her eyes…and a wit (as he was to learn later), a wit that’s fed constantly by intelligence and well-informedness.
And, how there had been no looking back. They had similar likes, almost similar dreams for their careers and their future—dreams that they dreamed together there on, and aspired to fulfill alongside one another.
Yes, this is Saba’s journey through the roller-coaster called life, and Sameer’s…and what we call destiny…and more!
What Makes This Story ‘Real’:
This is no fairytale romance, for it draws deeply from life’s not so smooth ways, that leave people staring agape at times…many a times–shocked, helpless…wondering ‘what next’…what more it would bring in its many folds…a story of love and treachery and betrayal…and yet, love–just the way it happens so often, with people around…it’s what makes us go ‘Ah life!’
“God!” Saba so wanted her to stop speaking right then, her sense of foreboding mounting…She was scaring her!
“Saba…” (she was brought back from her thoughts, heart pounding right in her ears, by now) “It is a matter of his life and death…” she trailed off, but only to take a breath and continue “I want you to promise me that you will not keep in touch with him…”
Her heart stopped! It was something else thudding her deaf…” How…how can she say this?!” Saba was shocked! “Hadn’t she said a minute ago, that Sameer meant the world to her!”
“Oh yes! YES! SAMEER IS THE WORLD FOR ME!” she wanted to shout!
“…And I’m, sure you would do anything for his sake” She hadn’t had it yet!
“Would you, Saba?”
“I know I’m asking for too much, but this is the need of the time, my dear…it’s a matter of Sameer’s life and death…no, a matter of keeping Sameer alive.”
