A Meeting

Posted: November 23, 2011 in Shorts

It was supposed to be a match-making meeting but both looked liked they would rather be anywhere else. Their motives were not too different anyways though neither of them was aware of that. It was supposed to be a mere formality, this meeting. Just way to get parents off their back. One meeting & they could just say, it did not work out & go back to their respective lives.

A few minutes of polite talk was all that was required to find out that they both inhabited completely different worlds. His was the make believe world of books, movies, games & music, Her’s was the world of corporate meetings, partying, & spending a lot of time outdoors. His center of thinking was purely emotional; Her’s was rational, especially with the big decisions. They tried hard to find common areas to talk , to get to know each other. He bought out the books, the movies, & lastly (and with little hope) sports. He drew a complete blank. She went direct, talking about her career, what she wanted to do in her life, her work & started quizzing him on his plans, things that he only thought about (& even then creatively globed about) during job interviews.  The strain of this conversation was clearly having an effect with none having cracked a smile after the opening exchange. She looked frustrated while he looked bemused more than anything. Clearly at a loss of things to discuss, it was a good time to close this meeting and leave.

What a waste of time was the common theme running through them. As they began to bid farewell to one another (& secretly hoping never to see each other ever again) with meaningless empty platitudes, his phone started ringing

“Why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di?”

And they both started smiling, looking at each other.
