Auto Rickshaw

Last night I boarded an auto rickshaw without really knowing the exact location of the place I was heading to.

I did enjoy the three-wheeler's ride but I also had an eye on the fare meter all the while and was aware how swiftly it was ascending. Finally when I decided to step down somewhere close to the intended place the meter was showing a herculean figure.

I realized when we get into any relationship there’s always a fare meter running somewhere within. The more time you give to the relationship, the more the meter’s figure. And then if one decides to step out of the relationship at random or deliberately or even against will, the fare shown by the meter of the heart, almost always, goes well beyond one’s emotional budget at that point of time.

I concluded enjoying the ride is as important as keeping an eye on the fare meter so that in case something happens and one needs to move out, one should at least be able to handle it.

You're a pure writer and you were born to be one. You can relate anything with life and create masterpieces! May you get world wide recognition(which you truly deserve) very soon. :)

n B c said...

Lebnox, do you have any idea how much your comment scared me??

Thanks for pouring in though..Naman!!

Lebnox said...

Well, popularity and recognition comes with a price. So you must be scared and happy as well :P

n B c said...

I agree :P Some prices are worth paying for !!

Lebnox said...

Okay, in my last comment there should be 'come' instead of 'comes'. :P :P

antra..... said...

is it that easy to get off the ride??not for everyone...it is hard to be that REAL and move out of a relationship...even though it will leave you bankrupt,some people chose to be in it till the very end...because they were honest in contributing to the relationship they can then start from the scratch and make something out of nothing..

neel,even though u r a writer and deal with thoughts,this post shows how practical u r...oflt i feel u r becoming harder,stronger and much more REAL...NICE..:))

n B c said...

Antara, thanks !! I agree with you its so tough to come out of a relationship especially when the fare meter shows high figure!! :)


Lebnox, don't worry the comment blotch has been taken care of.. ;)

antra..... said...

there is nooo fun in applying brain when it comes to love...it steals the innocence,which makes it wonderful...but it is wise 2 know when to call it quits...lucky those people who can held the steering wheel of the relationships..rest (like me) prefer to stay out of them..

From past many days i came 2 ur blog searching 4 smthin new but wasnt der :(. So thanx...:)
Getting 2 ur article: In a relationship its not possible 2 keep checking de fare meter is it?? Coz if it wld hv been der would hv been no broken hearts, no romantic novels n no love actually. So the point is if ur in love ur bound 2 gain smthin n loose as well...
Sry for being melodramatic....

I like your comparisons with the relationship, its too apt for the generation of 2011. Wish eternal love existed even now but alas its all in Novels and Movies.

n B c said...

Quite true !! Thanks for your comment..

Life said...

No problem you deserved it :) BTW I liked your piece of work "a thing beyond forever", somehow I could connect myself to the characters, that is what a perfect book is all about. Good Luck, keep writing :)

n B c said...

Thank you 'Life' :) perfect books are also those in which you don't relate with anything and still can't ignore it .. :)

Life said...

Roger that, Sir!!! :)

Gaurav said...

It would be really great if auto meter have sound too or its figures could be felt with fingers...
Coz when in love you are blind... you will never be able to see at what figure the fare is... and you will never know when you have turned bankrupt... :)

n B c said...

Haha!! :) Thanks for your comment Gaurav..

Ri said...

When the ride ends fare has to be paid, no way out! but nice post..

n B c said...

True Ri..!

Debajit Saha said...

Very Much interesting observation, Thinking and feeling Novoneel. But One question, when it comes for a relationship, how can we measure the fare meter? Is not it a cheap thing to measure ur love to ur lover?

n B c said...

Thanks for your comment Debajit...yes I agree its cheap but only if you take the post 'literally' ... once you allow yourself 'metaphoric' lens it won't sound the same!

I hope..


Thanks for being a part of NovoSphere!! :)

Debajit Saha said...

Instead, I m feeling great as I m nw a part of Novosphere. Your writings are awesome.

Regarding the comment, yes if I take it literally it sounds bad. Though I have asked u this qs, bt in reality I totally believes ur thinking. And I always try to do the same. Thanx to u. Becoz of writers like u, we the general people find our own thoughts in between a wonderful writing.

n B c said...

My pleasure Debajit !! :)

Debajit Saha said...

Hello Novoneel. When We will get another book of urs? As we r waiting fr a long time. Ur "that kiss in the rain" and "that thing beyond forever" r really awesome. And "that thing beyond forever" is the greatest love story among all Indian writers, as I think. Please write another one like that.
