REPORTER (calls me 1.10pm): Mam I am going to interview Barun Sobti today. He has asked me to call him between 1 and 2 pm. Will you be able tocome on line? Then I can connect you to him.
ME( Jumping with joy but trying to speak calmly): Sure. No problem.
REPORTER calls me at 1.30pm: Mam Barun is on line.
REPORTER 1.31pm: Oh! I think he is taken another call. his line is busy.
ME to myself Oh! No, no, NO!
REPORTER: Mam, stay on line. I will reconnect with him.
Me in my nervousness disconnect the line promptly! And feel like the pits!
REPORTER the Saviour, calls again: Mamplease do not disconnect.
ME: Yes, ok ok. Sorry, sorry!
REPORTER to BARUN: Barun, she is on line.
And then with waited breath, I hear his uff so familiar deep and sexy voice! Holy cow! I would have recognised that voice anywhere! He is saying to my Reporter friend: Can you please call after half an hour. Something very important has come up.
ME (to myself! I can't let him go!!!!! And just said without thinking): Hi Barun. Please can I talk with you?
BARUN: Ok. Hi! How areyou?(Maar dala!Allah! MAar dala! And that was really sweet of him as he was in a big rush and could have justsaid sorry n disconnected. My reporter friend also felt the same, wen we talked later)
ME: I am fine. How are you? Its so kind of you to speak with me cozit may mean nothing to you but means the world to me.
BARUN: No, no. My pleasure.
ME: I wish you success in all your upcoming and future endeavours.
BARUN: Thankyou very much.
ME: Will you be coming to Calcutta to shoot your new movie?
BARUN: Uh...uh...uh...not sure.
ME: Ok, Barun. I am a member of IPK Forum. And me and my friends from.all over the world, US, Singapore, UK are on this thread called Blast from the Past. We are still very much into IPK. We analyse episodes. There are poems, riddles, collages, songs, vms, pics. And you, you are all over the thread. So, will you please give a message to my friends on the thread?
BARUN: Well, please thank all of them. Ask them to watch all my movies. I'd appreciate that.
ME: Yes Barun. Thankyou so much!
Then there was a big pause. Coz by this time it had sunk in that I was talking to HIM and I was feeling faintwa. I thought he had disconnected the line. But he had not. And then he said the sweetest thing I had ever heard.
BARUN( a deep, husky, sexy n sort of concerned): Okay?
I guess he was asking if it was ok for him to go back to important work now. Oh! So cute! Or maybe by a stretch of imagination he was wondering why this female who was blabbering continuously had suddenly shut up. So maybe the ok was like in, 'tum theek ho?!'
ME: Yes, Barun. Thankyou. Thanks again.
REPORTER: Ya Barun. Ok. Thanks.
BARUN: Right. Thanks.
And he was gone...
REPORTER Was that ok, Mam?
ME: I don't know how to thank you.
All the while my heart was going dhak, dhak, dhak...
