Love after Divorce  

Siddharth Sharma retired from international cricket at the age of 32 which is too early for any passionate cricket player. It was speculated that he had a rough patch with his wife Natasha Singh who was the top actress in Bollywood until she got married. The first few years went smoothly for Siddharth and Natasha. But the false rumors in the media about Natasha’s affair with her co-star Deepak Kumar began creating rift between her and Siddharth. 
After unending fights and disturbances the celebrity couple decided to part ways. They even broke down in the courtroom on the day of their divorce hearing. While Natasha continued her journey in the film industry as a lead actress , Siddharth on the other hand got addicted to alcohol and drugs. He spent almost a year in rehab in order to get rid of his addiction. 
After completing his last day as a patient in rehab Siddharth returned to his home town Patiala from Mumbai. In the flight a pretty girl in her mid-teens sat next to him dressed in a pink salwar kameez. She was surprised to find her favorite cricketer next to her. Unable to control her excitement she kissed Siddharth on both his cheeks. Although Siddharth was a bit embarrassed but he was fascinated by the girl’s natural beauty. She introduced herself as Shikha Dhawan a 1st year college student studying Bachelor of Arts in Economics. Siddharth was impressed by her excellent communication skills and quick wit. They even exchanged phone numbers which was certainly a big deal for Shikha.

For three consecutive years , Siddharth and Shikha remained good friends and on her 20th birthday he proposed her in front of everyone making it public even on social media. When asked about moving on from his divorce with Natasha , he replied that he deserved someone better than her which sparked a fresh controversy. However , Natasha preferred to remain silent over her ex-husband’s comments. 

Even though Siddharth and Shikha had a wide age difference that did not become an obstacle in their relationship. Both were madly in love with each other and wanted to get hitched as soon as possible. Siddharth continued playing the IPL post retirement and started hitting huge sixes rekindling his lost form and love for cricket. He gave the entire credit to his young ladylove Shikha who restored his faith in love after a bitter divorce.

Hanker

She has a heart made of glass

which broke countless times.

Her eyes were filled with tears

that disfigured her angelic face.

Ceaseless pain caused by her ex

kept haunting her like a ghost.

Terrifying memories of her past

didn’t distance her from hope.

She still has the hots for a love

that is ideal coupled with faith.

The Hills 

There’s something sinister about

those hills in the backdrop.

No one knows the magic behind

them which allures us all.

Lush greenery is a boon to the

hungry eyes vying for love.

Stature of a hundred trees is

sky high limning their bulk.

Rugged arena attracts many

drifting minds near its core.

Whilst the invisible wind plays

hide and seek quite astutely.

Dark Love

Under the speechless moonlight

I spotted thee in the woods.

Never knew that passion existed

deep inside thy weird moods.

On a Friday night we came close

but something made you shove.

Even thee failed to halt our union

irrevocably going for dark love.

Infinite Sand

 What a spectacle it turned out to be

 when he pulled her suavely.

She encircled him like the galaxy

whilst relishing the moment.

The waves beckoned him & her

to the sea bed filled with pearls.

But the couple drowned in love

engulfed with the infinite sand.

Post Paroxysm

Two years of indefatigable brawling

culminated with a passionate kiss.

 He fell for me and I too fell for him

 on the consuming night of bliss.

 Those magnetic eyes of his blew my

mind miles away from realism.

We stood upon the lake of ecstacy

luxuriating in post paroxsym.

Beating Heart

Soniya , Mahi and Pranav are the kids of three couples – Dev & Kajal , Jai & Tina and Gaurav & Roma. These couples were family friends and were inseparable. But one fateful night they died in a deadly car accident on the way to Pune for picnic. Their kids were studying in a boarding school in London at that time. After learning about the untimely death of their parents the kids got shattered and took almost an year to recover. Coincidentally three of them were of the same age but each kid had a unique personality.

Soniya was a tomboy , brash and carefree while Mahi was just her opposite – girly , polite and responsible. On the other hand Pranav was smart , sincere and serious. Years passed and three of them grew into stunning youngsters. They lived in the same house which was owned by their guardian Adarsh Gupta , the common friend of their respective parents. However , Adarsh too passed away because of stomach cancer just a year before Soniya , Mahi and Pranav’s graduation. Pranav took over Adarsh’s business as he didn’t have any successor to inherit his property. While Mahi began working in an IT firm , Soniya wasted her time partying and procrastinating.

Pranav had a soft corner for Mahi but it was just confined to the boundaries of friendship. Soniya hated Pranav and Mahi because of their closeness to each other although she never figured out the reason behind her envy. Pranav was worried about Soniya’s health as she used to smoke and drink a lot . He yelled at her and hid his concern which infuriated her quite often. This led to intense fights between Soniya and Pranav bringing them to the peaks of hate. Mahi became the moderator and sorted out their issues most of the time. In the process , she began developing feelings for Pranav and made attempts to draw his attention towards her.

On a rainy day , Mahi seduced Pranav in his bedroom although he didn’t like her motives. While he was retreating , she was moving further closer and all of a sudden Soniya walked past the room and saw them as the door was open. Pranav and Mahi were shocked to see her while she was deeply upset to find them in a compromising position. She ran towards her room and locked herself. Pranav pushed Mahi aside and went away. He knocked Soniya’s bedroom door but she didn’t respond. He became anxious and felt guilty for hurting Soniya although he was reluctant to get intimate with Mahi. After several requests made by Pranav she opened the door. Mahi was in a state of rage and couldn’t fathom why Pranav didn’t show interest towards her. While Soniya sobbed like an infant for twenty minutes. Pranav tried to pacify her but in vain. He even apologized for engaging in such a shameful act by Mahi and assured Soniya that there was nothing brewing between him and Mahi. In a state of rage , Soniya confessed that she loved Pranav madly. That was why she grew jealous whenever he spoke with Mahi in a friendly manner. Pranav too realized that deep beneath his hatred lay his true love for Soniya which he always denied because she was a bad girl. But little did he know that her bad habits attracted him more towards her. Whenever she was in trouble he became her saviour. Finally , they embraced each other with warmth and grace and Mahi saw them. She rushed to the terrace and committed suicide as she couldn’t accept the fact that the man she loved was in love with someone else.

Destiny wanted Soniya and Pranav to unite and hence they ended up together. Both their hearts were beating for each other since childhood but their personalities were different which is why they were arch rivals initially. But eventually they became a couple and kick-started their happy and blessed married life.
