For me Life isn’t so easy. Struggling every moment. Pain every second, heartbroken every hours, and so on…nothing has changed my lifes living. Yet I feel I am acustomed with it. I can do live alone, do alone,…but being alone doesnot take us to the temptations of modern world. Its here at kolkata that I am getting exposed to the real world. Being out of ones country isnt like being at home. Friends are what we all hangup with, without which we cant imagine a solitary image of confining to a dark room. I have many friends everywhere irrespective of their gender. Indeed good friends are so precious and hard to find. But I am lucky to have you all as my friend. Having friends from different places inspire us with their true nature, a challenging voyage in our life and importantly their love life which some are expressed and left otherwise..
To talk about my friends out here at Kolkata, I would be talking of my college mates especially those who are close to me. I came here for my studies and at first I was lost unknowing what to do knowing though nothing could be done and how to feel being only Bhutanese in my institute.
But my good fortune never left me, being infatuated with good friends here. Since then my heart was on normal term with regular lub-dub of my once frozen heart.
My friends are from north india-kashmir, Meghalaya & Mizoram, a friend who are smart, well cultured and of course fluent in English-an advantage for a person like me who is non-Hindi speaking descendent.
At first language was my gap of communication. Most of them having problem with speaking english. Slowly I came to talking term. I thought I would be little dumb in college but then I got to know them without whom I was like an idiot. Their caring supports eased my hardships. Now it has been 2 years and I am sure I will be little more than a dumb.and staying together with them and sharing ones own culture, lifestyles, religion is fantastic. We even learn their deepest secrets. Let’s see what up to they are?
Ram with long hair, unfurled down the neck, he is innocent and not really exposed to the life’s greatest gift. But definitely he is embellished with the jewels of modern knowledge having a place to do a degree at very young age. Headed from Meghalaya I don’t know much of his love live but what I know is that he had loved once and he remained unknown to her till now. He is simple and dance oriented guy. Being my classmate and roommate I am contended with what we do and say.
Back in hostel, he is busy with Facebook on his Samsung mobile and most of the time on call laughing and talking. When I listen to him I could only hear ka stud and u sim, but really don’t know its meaning?but by observing his gestures, I guess its something which everyone of us would have struggled for! Recently he is in love. I see him struggling by making someone to hunt for cell number. “Ram don’t be silly, go and tell her. Chances are never zero.”
Samuel too is my roommate. He spend his time mostly with his cell phone and of course no doubt with his laptop. He play music whole night long. When all are asleep, who listen to the music no one knows. It stops only when the battery forces lapee to switch off unwillingly. What I love is his frequent shaking of body with the rhythm of heart throbbing music. Had there been Oscar, he would have won for missing most breakfast. You know what I mean? He is the one who love sleeping! Classes make him awake or else he would be flat on bed. Intellectually, he is sharp. His sleeping nature is an sharp contrast to his excellent academic performance.
Flown from Mizoram, he is handsome and many girls have crush on him. Unable to choose, he is ‘single and ready to mingle guy’. Rather what I would say a perfect bachelor! But by his regular creeping from room, well dressed make me doubt for his singularity. That’s he would say, going for chowmein but I say, for eating he wouldn’t be that pale and undoubtfully satisfied. What you guys say?
Omy, the hyperactive man is too much into life’s experimentation. He has gone through different stages of life… only left is death. He have one trait that he would wake up from deep sleep on hearing opposite voice. Can he survive without it? Wondering what? Take it easy that’s women. I can neither confirm YES nor NO. you just gotta see him. Sorry but I am left confused here. Should I say ‘nishi is his’? Yes definitely, they are so intimate that they cherish moments with frequent dates. But sometimes I am feeling guilty to utter for nishi would be too insolent. Journeyed from Kashmir, he is well heeled and stunning too.
Now see here… He was in love with another girl. I wonder how truly he loves. Or is that just a habit he is into? Observing how he say about her-Arpita, clear my clouds of doubt of false love. Every day, he stands within eyesight to measure and remark her lissome shape accompanied by howl of smile. He attends the class but he would be lost in a fugue and pay less attention to his studies. But he is a brilliant lad. He urges himself to act cool and shake off his martyr yet rays of love from her eyes intoxicate him. Take note, this girl is his 12th love. We call him “Bangya kuta”. Don’t ask me why? Just watch ‘pyaar ka punchnama’.
Asjid, from Kashmir, a hardworking guy and topper of our class is on every ones lips. Professors at institute have started weaving the clothes of success, building the castle of happy life for him. He is brilliant and favorite student of Professor Dr. Ganguly. He is not only study oriented. But he does have some share of time for love. He has found his love in the same class itself.
At beginning, there was grist to the rumour mills churning out stories that he and Rani are close in their heart. When asked, he promptly said, ‘I don’t deny that she and I are together occasionally. And I do enjoy her company. She is very sweet.’ Now they are ‘ in relationship and off relationship.’ That is sometimes I see them together, with sweet smile on their face and sometimes quarrelling over phone shedding crocodile tears. But nothing could distract him from studying. I call him ‘bookworm.’
Not all relationship last forever. Everything has its own phase of end. Owaise was once in relation perhaps for few months. No reason is needed for breakup. After all it happen with the shift of minds desire to explore something new. Once too intimate they were that they have done everything this life has to give them, now they are not in good future outlook. Inclining to few whom they may not be interested on us is too tough. I have argued “love someone who love us “but now I am wrong.
Came from Kashmir, he now force himself to live, loving someone. That someone is just a mere dream, though she is step away. Pain of loving would have been in great magnitude had he been ‘one woman guy’. He is fighting battles of love everyday within his marked heart. He finds his crush on every street he goes. Unable to find the perfect match, he is still unfortunate lone guy. His nature of loving everyone whom he come across, makes me full of questions. I don’t know whom he really love? He’s my buddy for about 2 yrs now, I think I’ve known him well...so, according to him, he got at least 2 or 3 true love…”Sam, jyoti is my true love, I love her yaar”..Next day, ”Sam, I love Angie, I want to marry her”..And sometimes sadly, he recount Misbah back home who was his first love. What I know is she don’t have any soft corner in her heart for him, and that’s how the name “Ram Lal” was born..Such is the ‘multiple love life’ of him.
Omar is most simple and friendly fellow, of humble origin from Kashmir. He is very nice guy, blessed with gods’ nature of patience. He is very caring and he never gets angry on anything. He is funny too, always laughing and let others laugh. Staying with him is just a remedy for boredom. Having bear like Osama bin laden, he is too religious. I could see him on white khan dress and white always praying to Allah, that’s what muslims wear and worship. When he pray, that’s when I think of my religion buddhism. No one would doubt he is cool guy and that they enjoy his company.
Does he have any love stories? Of course! He too have that impure heart soaked with loads of loving someone. But what every one of us struggle with the advantage of having heart with love is the love left unfelt by someone. Love get born its own but does love express itself to the wanted person? That’s the disadvantage of being advantaged with loving heart. No need to talk of studies. We know he is hardworking and dedicating. He would sleep with books and wakeup with the same. Love for something makes us act for it. Known as ‘rock’, he is solid and strong just opposite to me, but don’t understimate me.
Ravees physically musculine and handsome looking guy is topper of physiotherapy.he is straight forward guy.everyone idolize him for his good academic records.being good at studies doesn’t hamper his ability of playing games.rather, he is whole rounder.to mention, he is younger brother of Owaise. Studying together do have great benefits to eachother one way or the other. I wish I too had my brother here with me.you may wonder why? Let me be clear. One girl was in love with his brother. But I guess he did’t liked her, or may be he gave a chance to his younger sibling. That’s how ravees is in relationship with his almost babe. He was rocketed into utmost passion by her, whose eyes shone with the truth of goodness, lips, soft and tender, and hair strewn across her back like silken gossamer….
