‘THE ARROGANT GIRL’

“I was planning not to talk to you whole of my journey…. As I felt you are arrogant enough to be left all alone….” Jack started the conversation when only three stations and only two travelers were left for journey…in that train-coach running from Bhopal to Kalka…

“Ok… then what turned you on???” Ribbon asked him raising her eye brows.

“It may be my curiosity…” He answered.

“I think …It is your flirting habit…” She mocked him looking outside from the window with a firm on her face.

“Look… this arrogance… I was talking about this only… I am trying to make you comfortable in this silent coach … and you accused me of flirting…” Jack got panic saying these words.…

Ribbon didn’t say anything and kept on staring outside…

Jack pulled a one week old news paper from his bag and started reading loudly … “chief minister visited his village again……. Election to be held in November …Gang rape with twenty year girl, Bhopal city shamed……..police said this will….”

“No need to read the news in this dim light…don’t try to be over smart” Ribbon took the book from his hand and put ii back.

“Then how will I pass the time? Light is dim and you are not ready to talk…“ Jack shouted on her.

Ribbon took a long deep breath and said removing her hairs back from the face… “Ok… tell me …what you want to talk…”

Jack folded her legs and sat on berth cheerfully… he was very eager to talk to an extremely beautiful girl sitting alone in front of him for next two hours.

“Ok… first tell me… something about you… I mean your likes and dislikes…” Jack asked eagerly….

“Umm… I like nothing and I dislike this society…” Ribbon answered.

“What kind of answer is this???…. Anyway… now tell me what kind of boy you are looking for?” Jack again took a chance of flirting…

“I am not looking for any boy…I don’t believe on anyone” She answered seriously.

“Oh… are you all right???…. I mean one day you have to select someone to be your life partner….. Haven’t you imagine something about him???…” Jack noticed her seriousness and stopped smiling.

“I don’t believe in marriages or any kind of relationship…” She answered.

“What are you talking about???…. Are you serious or just messing with me….. I mean marriage is the central component of our social system… how you can think against society???” Jack asked her being very confused…

Ribbon took off the glasses from her eyes… stared in Jack’s eyes and shouted… “I have already told you…. I don’t care of this society!!!… now you can call me arrogant or anything… it hardly matters to me…”

“Ok… ok….please be calm” Jack stood from his berth saying this in his mind… “God knows what made this girl ….so much arrogant???”

The two stations have already been passed and only half an hour was left to reach their destination… next ten minutes got wasted as both of them were silent…

“Would you mind to write something in my slam book?? This will let me remember of a super arrogant girl I met in a train…” Jack broke the silence offering her his slam book…

Ribbon took and started turning the pages of his Slam book… she found the messages and signature of many people Jack has met… someone in an interview… someone in a museum …someone in his last day of college and someone on next bed in a hospital…

Ribbon also left a message and signature in his slam book… and she put it back in Jack’s bag by her own hands…indicating to read it only after their departure…

The station was about to come… train was getting slow in speed … Both of them collected their bags and reached the door …

As soon as the train stopped Ribbon ran towards the taxi that was waiting for her at the exit…

“I will keep on thinking whole of my life…. What made you beautiful girl so much arrogant against this world!!!” Jack shouted on her ….

But she didn’t turn back to answer her… and sat in the taxi

Jack kept on looking her taxi until she left…

He pulled out his slam book very eagerly to read what message she has written for him…

And Jacked couldn’t stop a tear from his eye even after he tried very hard… after reading her message…

“I AM THE TWENTY YEAR GIRL…. THAT WAS GANG-RAPED IN BHOPAL…..”
