I felt like the original Jack was me, after winning a jackpot to visit one country of my choice in the world for two days. The joy of winning this can never be compared to anything else in the world. Switzerland is my favorite country where as London is my paradise. For two days I couldn’t sleep, the joy and restlessness keeps my mind awake the whole time. Sometimes winning something great is also a curse because you got to be wise in choosing your destination. The world have so much to offer and you got only one to choose. I didn’t tell anyone about the jackpot, maybe that’s the reason my mind was so heavy.

Before I came to the conclusion I called up my mysterious girl about the opportunity. She was more than happy on hearing the news.

“You must visit me. The country here is the best. I know you will never regret. If you don’t, then we never know if we could talk again or whatever.”

Her last sentence keeps on vibrating in my mind, and finally I decided to visit Bahamas Island. I Google the country and it’s not so bad. I called her up to inform that I am coming in next fifteen days.

I took British airline from Kuwait, my flight got delayed and I have to wait for another six hours. Those six hours were the most irritating moment in my life. The feeling of joy that’s ahead was so strong that six hours seems like a year.

I imagined myself to be the Jack in Titanic movie, winning the jackpot and who finally met his soul mate, of course my story will be different.

I landed at Nassau airport late night, I couldn’t enjoy the beautiful greenly island as it was already dark; the city lights are beautiful though. As soon as I went out from the plane, I called her up but the line was not reachable. So I went to my hotel room, took a shower, I was mesmerized by the beautiful city from the 50th floor. I sent a text through whatsapp but it was not delivered. I don’t know when I slept off that night, I was too tired after 24 hours of journey. I got a wakeup call from the reception that my tour guide will be coming in less than an hour. I checked my phone, that’s always the first thing I do when I woke up. I saw three missed calls and a message from Lulu.

“Hi my dearest, I am so sorry. Please don’t be mad at me, I was on shift and the network here sucks due to weather. You must forgive me thousand times for which I am going to say now. My ship won’t be holding there as we are moving to Andros. They changed the schedule at the eleventh hour. Please video call me when you see this message. I love you.

All the joy and happiness were totally erased by the news. I felt like I was cheated, though it’s not her fault about the change of routine. I called up the reception to cancel the tour as I won’t be going anywhere. I video call Lulu but I couldn’t reached her. The network really sucks, maybe because of the recent Hurricane. I took a taxi and went to the port where the cruise ships comes and go. I sat on the side of the beach observing the beautiful island and a couples happily spending the loveliest moments. Later, I went inside one small restaurant to have a cappuccino, before I could order my coffee, a lady at the counter asked, “Are you Filipino?”

“No, I am from India.”

I shared the diverse culture of India and the languages we spoke. She was amazed by the beautiful culture of India. She never though India will have a small eyes like mine. I showed her the picture of Lulu, and ask her if by any chance she sees her or knows her. the response was negative.

The network really sucks, I couldn’t connect her through whatsapp or facebook. I spent my second day waiting for Lulu to come online. Nothing in the island interest me anymore. I went down to the Hotel lounge and had a couple of beer and I was totally high. I never take alcohol in my life, but that day out of frustration I drunk it.

I packed my things and went to the airport, I did all the necessary things at the immigration and went inside the plane. While waiting for the other passengers to board, Lulu called me up that she is at the airport, asking me if I could come out to meet her. Before we could finish the conversation our plane started to move, and I realized that it’s too late. I literally shed tears though it’s not the end of the world.

Do you remember?
Like Jackson, we danced
Like a blinds, we walked
Like a students, we experimented
Like a chefs, we cooked
Like a soldiers, we returned
Back from battle, singing a victorious song.

Where are you my dear?
You travelled so far
Uncountable miles
Where I can never meet you in this life
Why not back to me and say goodbye?
Oh! But your Father has a better place for you
Keep singing the victorious songs.

You, who are still around me
Do you ever counted the days past?
Isn’t it just yesterday?
That day will never be forgotten
I saw the Western sky with you
The sun will never set there
My dears, I love you, and I miss you.
God bless


She slapped my face;

As I bow to kiss her.

With tears in my eyes I walked out…

She follows and held my hand,

‘Wede! I’m sorry, please forgive me. Kiss me now.’

I looked into her eyes and

Our lips meets.

Tears filled my eyes again, and hers too as I say,

‘Thank you for the honor of your lips, I’m leaving you with no hatred, no jealousy, no negative thoughts, but I’m leaving you with a kiss full of love. Goodbye my love.’

“Don’t follow me because I have a long way to go.”


Lulu, I am waiting for you..

I don’t know why, but, off late this lady whom I never met in person is occupying all the space in my mind. I have no reason why would I do like this. I stays online just to meet her. I just feel like a teenager who had fallen in love for the first time, every day I woke up thinking of her.

Everyday when we connect through net, I would proposed her. Pours out my feelings for her. One day she asked me why I fall in love with her. “There are lots of girls in the world much more beautiful, more educated, smarter. Are you stupid? Please tell me why? And Ade how can I accept you when we haven’t met yet. I don’t want to love someone online. I am not saying that I don’t like you, but I just feel like we are rushing things up. Let’s meet up first and discuss about life.”

“Lulu, I don’t know why, it just happened. I just fall in love with you. What you said is absolutely true. I am scared of myself too. Honestly, I have dozens of ladies who are more beautiful or educated than you, but I don’t know why I choose you. I heard about you since 2014 but never in my dream had I thought I would be keeping in touch with you. You said you believe in fate, maybe this is fate then.” I responded.

The problem with me is I love someone so dedicatedly that I end up hurting myself when I didn’t get positive response. She asked me what are my likes and dislikes, of all the things we’ve shared, everything about us are totally opposite. One common thing is we both love pork and mustard leaves. I named her mustard and she named me pig, which I deserved it as I weighed 75 kilogram.

I called up her mom the other day and wish her happy birthday. Her mom was surprised that an unknown guy called up. Not very soon she realized that I am her daughter’s friend. “ahhh you must be my child’s friend who stays in Kuwait. My daughter told me about you last night. We are all relatives and I am glad that you guys are in touch with each other. In whatever things you do may God be your master. Lulu is also coming this winter; I think you should come too. We can all meet up.”

I called up my dad to inform him that I am in love with a girl whom I never met, but something inside me stops me. This girl is the only one whom my dad is not aware of, he knows all my admires or so called ex.

Lulu and we decided to meet each other before making any plans, but we were making plans before time. We decided to go for a trekking alone with our family this winter. Sometimes we were both crazy, living ahead of time.

Every single words that comes from her mouth seems so tempting that I couldn’t resist it. Even the small laughter of her makes me crazy. I feel like the whole thing is one sided though she have not rejected me. “Ade, let’s not be in hurry. We will meet up first and decide what will be the best for us. I know you will not like me, I am very strict. I have lots of freckles on my face. Anyways you are my brother.” Her maturity level makes me fall in love with her more.



“I told you na, that God will protect you. I love you dear.” I sent a text to her after she survived the Hurricane. I don’t know why, but I have being thinking of her a lot. Sometimes I would woke up in the middle of my sleep. By now, she knows that I have fallen for her. I know she is little matured than me, but age is just a number and that will not make much difference. I lied to her about my age which I regretted now because I was not honest. I lied because I don’t want to be a baby to her. I started to grow beard to show my maturity, it is silly but love can make you do crazy things.

“Ade, how could you love someone whom you haven’t met yet? I don’t know if you are playing with me or seriously fallen for me. But I suggest that you better find someone, because I sucks in this kind of love and romance thing. I don’t believe in love thing anymore, I believe in fate. It was love that hurt me the most. I’m happy to be single…”

I don’t understand why people are so scared to fall in love again. It should be love that makes the world a better place to live.

“…Ade you know I am older than you, you maybe smarter than me but I know life better. As of now everything is postponed. I just want to have pork and chicken (laughs).

I was not discouraged by what she said, instead I fall for her more and more. I told myself that she is a rare type that needs to be protected and preserved.  Her maturity level and her dedication towards her family makes me crazy. I yelled to God, “God, is she the one? See I have fallen for her and you know very well. Do something or show me the way.”

“How is my ring, I just purchase it today. Beautiful ase na?” She sent the image. For once I thought it was an engagement ring but thank goodness it was not.

“Dear, the beautifulest because it’s in your finger and it looks expensive as well.” I replied her. I don’t know why everything she suggested are always the best.

One day she ask me why my surname is Naro and how it happens to be. This is the question the whole world ask after moving out of my village. I remember I was refused by a bank clerk to do transaction due to my surname. It’s funny sometimes and irritating as well.

The good thing about us is that, we are relatives with lots of nerves in between. All my cousins in her village are her cousins too. I made fun of her by saying that I will be close to her even if she rejects me because we are relatives. I did little research on her family and it’s so amazing. They were no worse than mine.

“Ade, there was a time when we don’t have food to eat. My dad passed away that was the most terrible moment for us. But today, I am so blessed and thankful to God for opening my way. God is amazing. Wait for His will, you will never be disappointed.”

She sends her picture to me and I don’t know how many times I zoomed it. Literally I was blown away by the beauty and simplicity of her. Every words that comes from her seems perfect even though sometimes I don’t understands. She asked me about Vezho and Chanmi. I told her I still miss them. They played an important role in my life.

“I am still having a hard time to recover from the shit. I still miss Vezho but we decided to choose different path. I was still not willing to give up on her but then I realized that her happiness is more important. You give up on them not because you don’t love them, you do, because you believe in them and that’s the best sacrifice you can give.” I sent her the picture too.

“This is life and it’s amazing. But I don’t understand how both of you decided that way after five years, it should have happened at the initial stage. Anyways, you have to move on. You are still young. Eat lots of pork as a revenge (laughs).

“I wanted to marry you. Please wait for me. I have already told God about you. I am waiting for the answer…” She started to laugh before I could finish my sentence maybe because she never heard such a causal proposal.

“Ade, seriously I don’t want to promise anything to anybody. Let’s wait for His will. Hopefully God will answer your question.”


It’s being four days I couldn’t get any information about her. I was little worried, though I have full trust on my Savior for protection over my mysterious lady.

I sent a ‘hello’ text to her brother. My intention was to ask him about his sister; if she sends any messages or whereabouts. He was freaked out upon receiving my text (I can sensed it through his reply).

“I am so worried. My mom is alone. I have only one sister.” He replied.  I think he was so worried that he was expecting a bad news from me about his sister.

“Come on bro, nothing will happen to your sister. God is taking care of everything…” I tried to cool him down through my message, though on the other hand I was totally worried. “…My mom is so worried, so is my family. They are having a hard time. Please pray for us!”

I never thought of tracking my online lady but after receiving such messages from her brother, I couldn’t stay still. My conscience told me to check it in the net. There are lots of carnival cruise ship and I don’t know which ship she works. After an hour of searching I found out through the picture which she had sent it to me. I messaged the Engine Officer of the ship about the well-being of the crew members.

“Hi Naro,

We are all safe and sound. We had to leave from Freeport for safety precaution but most of the systems are still down. All the crew and contractors are in good hands. Tomorrow night we will be there and get connected.” The officer replied within a minute. I couldn’t be more than happy on hearing the news. I screenshots the messages and sent it to her brother.

“Thank you so much. I’ve contacted my mom and she is relief. My whole family is happy now because of your information. God bless you.”

I felt like a movie star after reading the text. I said to myself, ‘well done my boy.’

The next day I was expecting her online. I waited and waited but no result. I consoled myself that maybe it’s because of the power cut due to hurricane. It was around four in the morning she sends a text, “Ade we are back to Bahamas.” After that she went offline, my messages couldn’t get delivered. I double checked the message to make sure that I was not dreaming.

I sent the screenshots to her to let her know how crazy I was, and how her family was. I also sends the shots of the messages from the officer.

“Ade, you went that far? My goodness I can’t believe you. I know how my family feels about me. Thank you for keeping in touch with my family and also for continuously praying for us.” She said that it’s like her funeral when she on the internet, the messages and prayers from friends all over the world.

After few hours she posted in the facebook, “Thank you everyone for your prayers. I am back to Bahamas after a rough sea.”

I reacted to her post this time.




I was deeply hurt after my so called best friend decided not to keep in touch with me. She have so many reasons to be, so I never blamed her for that. Instead I respect her for the decision. From that day onwards we stopped all the connections, though we are still friends on facebook. I gave high five to myself for being the strongest of me. I stopped my usual talk with her cousins and friends. I wish so much to unfriend her or block her in social media but I still haven’t done yet.

I decided not to be close to anybody else, I warned my heart to be strong and courageous, and not to trust anyone.

I was once told that anything can happen when your heart is empty. Anyone can entered easily, and that’s true.

There was this girl whom I added in facebook. Lately, I discovered that she is my distant cousin whom I never met. She usually reacted on my pictures and short stories I updated. She sometimes commented on my status like, ‘you are crazy lover.’

I never thought I would be falling for this girl any time in my life. And moreover how can you do when you have never seen each other in real life. Maybe it’s true that people fall in love in a mysterious way.

“Hello Wede, where are you from? And why your surname is Naro? It’s a girl’s name nahoi?” She texted me in FB.

“I am from India.” I replied sarcastically.

We chatted that night for two hours. In that limited hours we came to know so much about each other. I knew little bit about her life through one of my cousins, so she was surprised when I asked her some personal questions.

As usual she would react on my status and pictures. Like I said I never thought she would make an impact in my life. It was one evening when I came from work and was feeling so bored and exhausted, there was something inside me urging me to call her. I video called her. She was still on shift when she received my call. She calls my name in pure mother tongue way, ‘Ade, Ade.’ I was like so you can pronounced my name so well like my mom did? I said to myself, ‘yo buddy keep her in a special place.’  We talked for a few minutes but that’s enough for me to fall in love. I whispered to God, ‘God! You are so creative, just see her eyes.’

She often shared her stories with me without any hesitations. For the first time I thanked whatsapp for allowing me to receive her pictures. It’s being three months now we are chatting. Like I said I am totally in love with her. One day I opened my heart to her honestly.

“Hi dear, I miss you and love you. One day I will marry you.”

When she heard that, she started to laugh.

“You crazy lover. How could you love someone so blindly? We haven’t met yet.” She responded. I went on to justify my stand by saying that I rather love someone than to hate one.

“We even miss and love Korean movie stars, so what is the problem loving you?”

“Good for you.”

We are planning to meet each other this winter at Mumbai. I can’t be hundred percent sure because I might not get my vacation as winter will be a peak season for business, but I showed some interest in it.

A few days back she video called me asking me to pray for her. It was a heart breaking moment, and life and dead situation. The hurricane had reached her work place.

“Ade! Ade…” She calls my name. “…Please tell my mom that I love her so much.”

“Hey dear, you will not die, I promise you. God will take care of the sea. Be strong, for Jesus is with you always. May the word of psalm 91 be with you.”

“Ade, thank you for that. I believed in Him, yet I’m so scared now… Ade… Ade…” the network went off. I couldn’t reached her after that. That night I challenged God by saying, “Lord! I will kill myself if you failed to save her, and I know you will not want to lose me too. So you better save her now.” I broke down in tears.

I have being checking the news for three days now, yet I haven’t heard any news related to cruise ship accident. I think God accepted my challenge. I still couldn’t reached her through phone or net, yet I hope she is saved.





With love Professor


The stars of Kohima college. I’m forever grateful to them…

I called her up the next day requesting her to break up with her boyfriend if she love me,  But she was not ready to take such steps. I gave her an option, to love me or leave me alone. She gave no reply on that. I took it as a negative response and went my way. I promised myself never to disturb her. She keeps on calling me, maybe to explain why she can’t decide or maybe I don’t know.

I left her a message and I changed my number after that.

“Hello Vezho,

I love you but can we just be what we used to be: a friend and a stranger… with due respect I’m staying away from you. So that both of you will have quality time and love eachother more.”

I don’t know whether she replies my messages as I’d changed my sim card.
It was Teachers’ day and I broke up with my girlfriend.

I called up my favourite professor and wished her “Happy Teachers’ Day.” I told her what had happened to me, and how I took that miraculous decision to stay away from her.

Madam Anny sarcastically responded,

“Is it because of me? You started missing me?”
(I could not vividly remember everything, but there were some moments which are still fresh and keeps on encouraging me to move further.

I became the luckiest person after I got admission in Kohima College, because it’s like you are entering a Harvard University. The structure itself says you are in the best college. It’s worth walking from PWD to Kohima College everyday, and it never did disappoint me.)
I would say the first lesson I learnt was the John Donne’s “A valediction forbidding mourning.”

I fall in love with the person who was explaining it to us.

Literally, I’ve missed Anny alot. She used to be my best friend before I left Kohima. She lives in Jakhama with her hubby and two sons. Every one in the college likes her; I never missed her classes for three years. I never scored well in her subject that was the most embarrassing thing. I can’t remember how we started to be a good friend; she would often dropped me home after college; picked me up too, as I lived in PWD Kohima… I don’t know how and why I started to fall for her, she was my lecturer, a PhD holder, a married woman. She treats me like her own brother, and nothing beyond that, but I being the stupidest guy had just fallen in love with my professor.

It was my last day of college when she calls me to her table. I could never forget what had happened. We sat opposite to eachother without a word; everyone left; the peon was impatiently waiting for us. She held my hand and kissed it softly.

‘Close your eyes dear, let me pray for you.’)
“Yes, I miss you madam, but you are not the reason for that”

“Wahaha I knew it, I knew it”

We had a nice chat, discussing about life. She said she misses me sometimes as I always make fun during serious time. She never knew that she was my crush until I opened up. She laughed so loud that it nearly broke my eardrums…

“I’ll tell my husband…for sure. He’ll hunt you now.”

“Oh no please don’t”, I begged her.

“Just kidding Uncle, I will not. But he knows that you were my student and  he is proud of you. I told him how you struggled in life and moved to Mumbai. He wants our kids to be like you. I think my husband is in love with you Wahaha.”
She often sent a mail which encourages me not to give up, but to strive more. My crush, now turns out to be my professor in life, whenever I’d faced any issues or problems she would response with a practical solutions. She would update me what’s happening in the college and around Kohima. The funny thing about her was she always sends a picture of pork and axone just to tempt me.
“Hello Boy,

You must have slept the whole day and expecting you to still be sleeping…….!!!!!

College is busier than before with all activities, but life goes on. Hope Mumbai isn’t mistreating you, city life is never easy but I know you are a responsible gentleman, I’m sure your mother is really proud of you. The picture you posted in the facebook must be your family, a lovely family. Are your siblings studying? Where are they?

Life can never be all rosy, they say life is like a piano, the black keys are the sad times and the white keys are the good times, both the keys together make a beautiful music. That day….. when you open up to me about your family, I couldn’t do anything for you and I actually regret that, but now as a friend and a teacher, if life treats you bad, please do not hesitate to share……if I can help you in a little way, let me know. Above all… God……Mathew 6:26.

Take care always.

With love

Your Professor Anny”
