Part I

Unforgettable Time


Arjun moved out from the AC cabin on the train and stood near the door. Fog formed on his aviator-framed eyeglasses due to the sudden change in temperature of the surroundings. He was smiling deeply engrossed in his thoughts that he didn’t even notice the physical transition happening right in front of his very eyes.


​The train was gushing at the rate of knots. The plastic covers that were thrown out from the trains, that passed by for decades, were trying to catch up with the train. On the journey, trees were left behind, people looked like ants and Arjun felt like he was impersonating Flash.


Just then a familiar face standing beside him winked. He responded with a smile and nothing else. She was the girl who sat in the opposite berth to his.


Three years back, he would have at least tried to impress her but now his mind was just confined to occasional glances and smiles.


The girl started, “Hi... Hii... I’m Diya​. Who are you smiling at?”


“It’s nothing. You won’t understand it unless you experience love.”


She retorted, “Oh! Come on... I’ve been there thrice!”


Arjun smiled again and exclaimed, “I can understand the way you were in love and, to be frank, it isn’t what you call love.”


She furiously asked, “Okay Mr, how long has it been since you’ve been in love?”


Arjun answered, “Three years to be precise.”


“Oh, God! That’s like decades! How did you manage? My guy, the second one couldn’t breathe for three days and broke up with me as I wasn’t available to him during my college trip.”
