Part 11

It was once said by no doubt an insightful man that "Love is the wisdom of the fool and the folly of the wise." It was Samuel Johnson, I believe.

What more could be apt to describe the two people our worlds are focused on right now- Shaantanu Khandelwal and Khanak Jadeja. The former sat in his car, driving his way to office and the latter slept peacefully because she had completed her letter and posted it last night to the hunky driver on his way to office right now.

To say she was indifferent because she should be staying up late nights in anticipation of his letter now, would be unjust. The woman was on a mission. She had just come out of a rigourous strategizing session. She deserved the sleep.

Could the same be applied to the man however, was another question. Was it right for him to hum his way to work? To listen to Kishore Kumar on his car's stereo? To smile like a love-sick puppy? Well, he wasn't love-sick to be precise, but his heart and mind was contaminated to say the least. Contaminated by a jingling virus called Khanak. Of course he didn't know that but we'll forgive him because we do!

As Shaantanu entered his cabin, had there been anyone close enough they'd have heard him mumble "Agar aaj tumhara letter na aya na Khanak tou tum dekh lena mein kya karoun ga!"
Sure enough, when he turned back after closing the door to his cabin he saw a distinct light brown envelope sitting daintily on the top of the pile of postmail for the day. Shaantanu was sure it was mocking him and faraway in the confines of her warm appartment Khanak would be laughing her lovely laugh, no doubt mocking him as if to say
"Kya karoun ga?" And fluttering her eyelashes to annoy him and enchant him at the same time.

It was in this moment that Shaantanu concluded Khanak was a witch. For indeed she was no less that bewitching him. The woman was an enchantress. He hated admitting to himself, but when he was on his own these past few weeks, Shaantanu Khandelwal often thought about Khanak. Her rhythmic name and subtle blush, her pure eyes which concealed no emotion-whether nervousness or anger, her perfect height for it made her head reach to the crook of his neck. Everything about Khanak had caught his attention and his mind begged attention to  anything thing he didn't know about her.

Though it would be premature to call this love, it was attraction nonetheless. Let's just leave it at that. But our Shaantanu Khandelwal is a tad bit more modest. He called it interest. Interest in a fascinating woman who did not fit into either of his two categories of men outright.

No less eager than Khanak when she found his second letter in her mailbox two days ago, Shaantanu rushed to pick up the brown envelope and started reading her letter.

Dear Shaantanu Khandelwal

A traditionalist like myself would like nothing better than to exchange letters of fondness with a man who wants to sweep me off my feet and ride me into the sunset. Alas, the latter proverbial phrase does not apply to you. You have neither swept me off my feet nor have any intentions of riding into the sunset with me. You wanted honest, I give you frank. These letters are manageable, unless of course you would prefer another mode. Lets leave this discussion at that.

But since we are on "honest mode" I would believe it's only fair from me to put forth my observation. However, to expect my observation to be judged impartially would be premature since we hardly know each other.

So, I'll say this much Shaantanu: I respect our fathers and believe that for their sense of satisfaction we should spend time on exploring each other's character and our compatibility. Like you, I too believe we are poles apart but I cannot bring my mind to think that my father would've chosen this match out of recklessness. I don't know the relationship you share with your father but I would take the liberty of asking you to continue with this letter correspondence unless you absolutely abhor me. Please take note that I would not mind such a conclusion by you. From our brief meeting I have concluded that it is unnecessary to state the differences in our characters with regard to the cities we live in. Should someone judge us without knowing our background it would be saner to conclude that I was from Mumbai and you from London than the other way round.

I would not say your notion about marriage worries me, but I believe it will play a great role in determining how we move on with our correspondence. I am not at all into flings and neither do I want to give my parents any false hopes. Actually, since we formally haven't exchanged any email IDs or cell numbers, I am very surprised that our parents believe we'll sort out our minds and reach a decision living an ocean apart.

Anyhow, I believe that it's fair for us to continue with this correspondence. I would be open to answering any questions you have as long as they seem timely and relevant. Moreover, not only would I like you to answer my queries but also write a bit more about yourself on your own initiative. We are still a little less than strangers, but much more than entangled kids. I propose we sort out this mess soon. Being acquaintances would probably not be such a bad idea.

Khanak Jadeja

Shaantanu folded the letter and immersed himself into deep thought. He had grown to like the fierce lioness he saw in Khanak. Even the shy deer had mesmerized him. But this cold exterior of a warm hearted person was a different experience altogether. This time, he wouldn't kid himself- he held himself responsible.

He put himself in Khanak's shoes- on the terrace that fateful evening weeks ago, the moments in her bedroom when she silently read his letters in secrecy. The man in question seemed inflexible, arrogant, confused and most importantly uninterested. And if the man seemed indifferent, it would seem shameless for a traditional girl like herself to throw herself at him. Even if she liked him, which he had doubted since he had been a complete a**, she would be scared to show him her true feelings. Why would anyone open their heart to a man who seemed emotionally devoid? Who would offer their life to a man who didn't care about his own? Who would entrust their life to a man as confused as confused could be?

And though he still knew that Khanak being a woman demanded caution, Shaantanu was determined. If there was a third category of women, he would find out.


Khanak circled the spoon while stirring the masoor pulse that was cooking on the stove. She stirred subconsciously, for her conscience was busy elsewhere.

Had she been too curt in her reply?
Had she signalled that she was uninterested?

But she couldn't have showed her interest either! She didn't even know she was interested. And if she was, why was she? He was totally unlike her. He didn't even know what marriage signified. That it was more than an eight lettered word. He seemed so sure of himself, but somehow she felt it was a facade. How could she like a man who was in a state of disarray internally? Moreover, how could she tell him that she liked him?

What would I say?
What would he think?
Surely, he'd think she was like any other woman he'd ever come across- flat on his good looks and money!

And Khanak couldn't afford that view for herself. She wasn't vile and opportunist. She didn't judge people on their looks and bank balance. And she so wanted to believe her father wouldn't have okayed this proposal for business purposes either. Then why had this Khandelwal family sprung up suddenly, out of nowhere? Shaantanu and Khanak were targeted as a potential couple and their fathers had decided to start a new business line together. Of the two groups, the Jadeja Group was noticeably smaller for the Khandelwals were considered nothing short of an empire. The abruptness of this whole situation had aroused Khanak's curiousity but now she was retracing her steps.

If this indeed was a business deal or for economic benefits, surely Shaantanu would've been eager to rope in Khanak's approval. So far, there had been no trace of any such intention.
Was he playing reverse psychology?

At this point in time, Khanak thought not. Somehow, she felt that despite Shaan's mysterious yet attractive demeanour the man was genuine. He wasn't the best of men, but he didn't seem like a liar either.
