Pehla Pyaar

The heart fluttered and murmured a soft soulful love song, as it did daily, whenever I saw her in the class. I had to talk to her, had to tell her my feelings. At least she knew I existed – she would smile at me occasionally and I’d spend the whole day on cloud-9.

It was the last exam – last day of school. Now or never – I psyched myself as the exam ended, walked up to her and blurted, “I love you“. Smiling indulgently she patted my 12-year-old head, “Why don’t you go and play? Let me check your papers“.

Was hoping to pen a 55, but the first draft happened to have 100 words. Was too lazy to edit 45 words 🙂

Disclaimer: I am not the protagonist, I did not do this; at least I did not say anything to my Chemistry teacher 🙂

      It was always the Chemistry teacher 🙂 She taught my class just for a year, before she got married and moved to some other city.

      Fast forward 3 years, I bump in her again and she mistakes me for my elder brother 😦

      When you are a kid it is tough to have an elder brother who is good-looking and tends to leave a memorable impression on any person he meets 😛

    Waooza! It must be a universal thing with Chemistry teachers 😈

    Sush in Main Hoon Naa was the perfect epitome of all Chemistry Teachers ❤

      With Sush as a Chemistry teacher, I would have been a whiz at that subject. Unluckily Chemistry sustained my interest only for a year 😛

    Pehla Pyar Jae Jeevan se Bahar 😀

    Good one! I’m myself thinking of graduating from the 55 class 😛

      No need to leave 55 behind (after all you are the numero-uno of the 55 class) .. Just stick to the format which suits the story best 🙂

    @Meena, I suppose it’s because of the paucity of girls in usual boys’/ co-ed schools in India. Teachers are just the next best alternative.

    Nice read, Kunal. As usual 🙂
