Falling in Love again ..........with my wife...

 “I had committed the blunder again”.!!!!My grey matter had ditched me. It was my 6th marriage anniversary  the day before and I had completely forgotten about that. This was like “blunder repeated” since I had forgotten the anniversary date the previous year  too…Last year somehow I managed to escape from the consequences but this time the aftermath of the blunder  had manifested in a furious way…..
    “Furious reserved looks; silent tantrums; generally don’t look good on a pretty face. Especially if they are intended for you. But that was what I was getting from my wife; that too in myriad amounts in response to my blooper..”So here I was a poor chap, feeling guilty of forgetting anniversary date and figuring out ways to convince his angry wife…”.
     Next up I was in front of my laptop with Google on screen. It’s an unequivocal belief among all engineers that Google is one stop destination wherein all your queries get answered. Be it a professional question,or a personal question or any damn thing…the first thing we engineers think is Google. And since I am no different I decided to take help of “God” like Google with a hope to tackle my situation. I keyed in the phrase “How to console your enraged wife”…..There were myriad of results for this but none of them was convincing enough .There was no tailor made result considering the fact that my wife is a unique creature….
  Dismayed by these series of events I shut my laptop with a thud and sat on the couch . My eyes were staring at the roof ,walls hoping to get an answer. While i was busy staring ,the shelf caught my attention. I saw our marriage album lying there. My mind told me go pick it up. I obliged….And you know what after that something amazing happened……
  I was flipping through the different photos. One picture  got my attention. It was a single photo of my wife in her bridal attire. She was looking stunning in it. I felt guilty for having disappointed such a beautiful wife. I kept on looking at the picture. I noticed her alluring dimple…for the first time which I didn’t even have a clue about all these 6 years. I just thought how bad I am in observing and perceiving beauty. The longer I looked at it more the finer and exquisite things I found out which I hadn’t observed all these years….
  As I was observing the picture a chord struck in my mind. Yuppie I had found my answer. I recollected someone saying that  “Women folk appreciate when you observe and appreciate those finer things about them”. Taking cue from that I texted my wife who was in other room.

Hey dear, was looking at the marriage photo. And trust me your dimple is elegant. I am falling for it “…
I was waiting for her reply.5 minutes had passed .There was no sign of reply .I was just on the verge of accepting disappointment  but then I saw that my mobile beeped. I was elated and opened the message with excitement. But when I read the message I was agitated….

“It was from a bank, about house loan”

I threw the mobile and decided that staring at the wall is the best thing I can do.Just a couple of minutes later my phone beeped again. It was an endorphin rush when I checked it …It was from my wife …the message read

“Hmmmmm J J

I was like girls and their “hmmmmms”.

I replied her back “Can I have the privilege of witnessing that alluring dimple”

 I was waiting for her reply .Just then I heard the sound of door getting unlocked. The plan had worked. She came out and stood in front of me with her hand on her waist and a made up angry face which had a tinge of smile highlighted by the beautiful dimple”. This was followed by some tantrums from her. But I knew that the anger had finally melted

My grey matter was finally helping me now…I recollected that my wife loves nocturnal long drives. So I asked her “How about a long drive tonight”….She was more than happy. She just hugged me and said yes….In the meanwhile I decided to present my wife with an anniversary gift …So I went out to purchase one….

The Evening
    We were all set to go out for the drive. She came out of her dressing room clad in a beautiful skirt..She asked

How am I looking”.
.I said “you look stunning but…” ..
She replied “But what??”
I said “With you hairs open you will look more beautiful”..

She smiled and said “give me a minute”..She rushed to her dressing room and came back with her hairs open…Trust me friends “Looking at her I was going weak in my knees”….
  We got into the car and got started…..It was a happy and romantic vibe inside the car….She asked me to put on some music…I switched it on…Then something struck in mind. I was like why not dedicate a song to her…I said  “hey dear this song is for you” and  played

“Soniyo Soniyo tumhe dekhtahun to soch ta hoon…..”.

She turned red in her face…and said thank you in her mellow voice….

As the drive continued she asked where are we heading ???? I replied “It’s a surprise for you”.As I had already told that my wife is a unique creature…She had some unique inclinations. She had once told me that she loved to drink tea in small tea shops  that are present on the outskirts of city. She had done lot of this stuff during her college days.And I thought why not do it today….And you see I had understood that “A sure shot way to make a person happy is to understand those small things that make them happy and do it for them”.

So I parked my vehicle in front of a small tea shop on the highway. She was amazed and questioned me “What are we doing here”…I replied  “ hey how can you forget this. Don't you remember you love this?”..She then smiled and hit me on my arms and said “chalo”….Her happiness was radiating…I could feel it and so was mine….
We got back into the car and continued our journey..I was now waiting for the perfect moment to present her the anniversary gift…And guess what nature came to my help. Rain God Started pouring drizzles to enhance the romantic vibe…I decided to seize the moment and parked the vehicle ...

 I asked her to get out of the car stating “lets enjoy the rain”…She was reluctant but yielded to the persuasion. She was like what is wrong with you…?I replied “You will get to know and grinned”.

I opened the platinum love band and held it in front of her. She depicted a feeling of amazement amalgamated with happiness.  I had a plethora of options to present her but the platinum love band surpassed everything. The way it signified and symbolized love was unmatched and unavailable in other gifts.Hence I chose Platinum Love band to celebrate love.

I went on my knees, took her hand and slid the platinum ring expressing my feelings through this poem which I had written for her
"Beauty lies in the eyes of the Beholder"
Is what the world said
It is the unequivocal truth
My thoughts said

But my thoughts transformed,
The truth became a lie,

When i saw you

Beauty lies in your eyes
Beauty lies in your face
Beauty lies in you...

A tight hug and a warm kiss was what I got in response…. J J  I felt like  I was in love again --Obviously with my wife!!!.But this time the love was much more intense than ever
