An unfinished story

Moli was here in Delhi for few days. He went this afternoon.

Yesterday, during dinner, he said he wants to write a story. I had heard this from him many times in IITM too. This time, he was very enthusiastic as he spoke. He said he had a story, a tragedy. He just wanted to write it.

I said narrate. And then he began to narrate. I listened.

We finished with our dinner, walked to the hostel. The story continued. We came to room and the story seemed never-ending. He spoke and I listened. This went on for hours. The clock showed 2 am but both of us had no intentions of sleep or rest, though the day had been tiring. Finally, he finished. I was left totally speechless.

That night shook my knowledge and view-point of certain civilization to such an extent that I would have never dreamt of. The tragedy is that Moli thinks he can’t write and so he needs a writer to pen down this story. Having listened to the story myself, I can only agree that it’s impossible for anyone other than himself or few others who can write it or feel it. And the sad part is that the story had many characters and events from real life, to one of whom the writing of this story has been promised. This promise may not have made the character happy, but it certainly must have brought a smile; one of the very rare things to do so.

We discussed about the story for sometime and then drifted to sleep, forgetting everything that was said and heard.

    Yaar, Moli told me so many things in past two months… but never told about his story… with his narration, it must have sounded beautiful (illustrative, and stimulating for the ears as well)
