Rhea had never imagined she would
be a part of this kind of a crazy Freshers. When she had started from her
little town in UP she was excited about studying in the national capital. This
college was particularly famous for its ragging but it now will tight laws this
notorious practice was much less. Now the seniors retorted to a more friendly
As a part of the freshers ragging
she was set up on a blind date at a cafe next to the college campus. Her friends
teased her with those – ‘you may get your
prince charming’ and ‘you are lucky,
girl’ comments. Could this possibly be a start of a friendship or something?
May be I am thinking too much, she thought.
Her eyes scanned almost every
person entering the café. The guy in red T-shirt… the one with the cap…. Or the
one reading a book at the couch? Who was he?
She looked at the guy entering
the café in grey T-shirt and three quarters. Unkempt hair, weird looking
stubble, sneaker laces open – he looked like he came straight out of the bed.
Rhea quickly sipped into her mocha latte and took out her phone. Thank God he
was not coming to her table.
“Rhea, right?” A deep voice interrupted her whatsapping moment.
She looked up only to realize the
dizzy looking guy was standing right in front of her. She could only manage a
“Hi, I am Harry” he introduced himself.
“Harry??” Rhea didn’t know whether she asked that with
inquisitiveness or disgust.
“Yeah… not Potter… but Pathak…its Harish Pathak.. but friends call me
Harry”, he replied.
Over the next 20 minutes Harry spoke
about himself in his fake American accent. Rhea had a different answer in mind
each time but told something else just to be polite. After half an hour of his
blabbering on his foreign travel, his IAS dad, his love for cricket and Salman
Khan came the dreaded moment when he asked
- “So, how did you like me?”
She had felt like running away
from the table many times when he was talking. And now she thought may be just
a straight smile would do.
“So, you like me baby?” asked Harry mimicking Salman Khan’s voice
“Bhai, rehn de style. Tu thoda shave hi karke a jata, ajkal to who bhi
do rupay mein ho jata hai”
She left Harry in a startled state when she
left café. She couldn’t believe she just said that to one of her senior. But
that Harry, ‘not Potter, but Pathak’ guy deserved just that.
