The three mistakes of my life

I am an atheist, so I generally avoid religion, my knowledge on cricket died down when I asked my brother who is the guy hitting the century, and he gave me a you-are-an-alien-from-planet-zoran look of disgust(I later find out he is Sachin Tendulkar). I had business, but I do not involve my friends into it, so not interested in sharing the thousands of mistakes I made them. So this is not about cricket, religion and business this is about some other three mistakes or rather one mistake, I repeated 3 times.

So, the first one happened when I was in class 11th. I saw her waiting in the admission line and I fell in love with her (or so I thought that time, never take a degree from bollywood university) I knew she was the one… the only one, made for me.

I had to do something, I had to talk to her maybe? I am not those ‘How-you-doin’ guys, and I definitely terribly afraid when I talk to girls. The thing about life is, all your confidence and good smile goes down the drain the second you need it most.

Same thing happened here and I could not talk to her.

The year changed, our subjects where different, our class rooms changed. I tried going to college on regular time, but apparently my laziness and the pathetic subjects forced me to roam around Pune instead of staying in college. I never got to see her again.

The second mistake happened immediately next year when I entered 12th class. This time I saw her and I realized she was the one, the only one. Little did I know, so thought 50 guys behind me as soon as they saw her. I am pretty much convinced she was a veela in disguise as a muggle. Suddenly I started going on the bus stop to catch the local train. Lost any taste in food (actually that was also because there is not good food near railway station)

I knew my first mistake and a good person is that one which never repeats it. So, I shouted out loud, ‘By the power of gray skull’ thinking I will turn into he-man (which also did not happen) I walked near her and the first thing I said to her was, ‘I love you!!!!’

‘Excuse me?’ She.

‘Erm…sorry…sorry…its a mistake,’ I smiled dumbly.

What happened next is a classified CIA file and I never saw her again.

The third mistake happened after two years and this was the gravest mistake I did, which I still regret. I met her in our second year engineering, she was crying sitting alone in the class, as our subject teacher had told her she will fail in subjects.

I consoled her and offered to teach her programming (the only thing, I found out, which generated confidence in me and apparently boosted my moral) and I committed the third mistake of my life. What happened next, I am completely to blame for.

These are the three mistakes of my life, one happened due to my less confidence, one happened due to confidence and the third happened due to over-confidence. If you see the write-up is a bit discreet and does not name names, it is for the sake of the people involved in the write-up.
The thing about fate is that, it behaves unpredictably. You will be surprised to know, all the three girls mentioned above have the same first name.

P.s. If you are reading this and you know the people or places in the write up, keep your mouth shut. I do not wish to have blame-game on my blog.

P.p.s. I have not committed a fourth mistake till date.


  1. it...
    d best line of the piece was indeed ..:"The thing about fate is that, it behaves unpredictably."....:)

  2. Hmm, nice mistakes! If they weren't there you'd have had a boring life ain't it?!! :D

    By the way, why does the post start with I am an atheist... is it very important to proclaim (or convince) that??!!! :D
