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”
