Love at first kiss, a long lasting love story

Love at first kiss! A long lasting love story

Featured post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

To my childhood companion,

“Tujhe dekh dekh sona, tujhe dekh kar hai uthna
Maine ye zindgani sang tere bitani, tujhme basi hai meri jaan”

There was something that always enticed me to you. I always dreamed of befriending you and spending my entire life with you. I was jealous when you were close to the guests coming to my home on the Winter Sunday evenings. You made them all so warm and comfortable. In fact, you were the first thing they all discussed and then praised too. Everyone had their share of you except I for I was a kid and was not allowed. But in my heart, only I knew how much I craved for you and wanted to be close to you.

And then finally, one day when my mother went to the kitchen to get some snacks for her, I got that golden opportunity when you and I were alone in the room. It was the moment I was waiting for. I stole a glance, held you and kissed you. Yes!!! I did. I knew it would be magical and you didn’t disappoint me, I was lost in your charm totally. That first kiss made our bond forever. And since then, you have been my partner, my love for life, no matter in which corner of the world I am.

I never expressed my feelings to you my love but this Valentine’s day, I wanted to ooze them out and share with the world what you mean to me. From your captivating fragrance to the brown tone to your spiciness, I love everything about you. I can’t imagine starting my day without holding you in my hands and resting my lips on you. I love being with you while cradling a book or painting something new. Your warmth is unmatched.

You cheer me up in the snowy mornings and make my best and hottest companion on the gloomy, rainy afternoons. If I have a tough day in the office or sleepless nights with kids, you never leave me alone. My eyes look for you and my lips long for you when you are away. I cherish all those countless memories with you in our balcony gazing at the stars together.

And I know this is not one-sided love honey. You love me equally. You ensure leaving me relaxed and soothe me the most when I just need to unwind myself. On the days, I am not well, have a migraine or battling with cold, you are the first one that comes to my mind. For you know how to heal me fast. Merely a sensational touch of yours and I am all charged up. You help me sleep better miraculously.

I wonder sometimes, how can anyone dislike you. I feel pity for them, what they are missing in their lives. Such a delight you are. But good, I need not share you with them. The best thing about is the variation of you. You have something for everyone selflessly. Something new every time, exciting and never boring! To me, you mean hospitality. As you are always there to welcome me home.

You remind me to be grateful, thankful every day. Thanks for being the love of my life, stay bright, refreshing and comforting forever.
My cup of chai!!!

Woooow.. such a fantastic read. Must say what a fresh start of the blog train. I am not a “must have my cup of chai every morning person” but yes whenever I meet my cup of chai, I want it tasty, strong and with ginger. With that, I won’t mind to have Samosa…yummy.

Thought you were narrating a fiction story or the way you met your husband! No way I could have guessed it it was chai! Ha ha, so chai it is! And it’s indeed a long lasting love story – it will never disappoint you and argue with you.

February 15, 2019 2:04 pm

February 16, 2019 7:35 am

This was so romantic .Love how you weave stories out of life and thin air. And it was chai!
I wondered when you said brown tone but was kept hooked till the end.

Wow, what a post and I had a great time while reading it. I was in deep thought, what do you want to say exactly when I had read first few paragraphs…and at the was chai…loved the way you narrated it. #Vdayblogtrain

February 18, 2019 7:10 am

I was both a chai and coffee person (yes, it is possible) but I’m now a complete chai person (yes, that’s possible too!). 🙂
Nothing is better than a steaming hot cup of ginger tea to make my morning pleasant! Loved this post. Chai is love!

February 18, 2019 1:13 pm

Hahaha… such a long-standing, spicy, steaming hot relationship you share Vartika with your beloved “Chai”!
I’m sure no one would have ever painted the town red with the love for “chai” like the way you did.
Refreshing post indeed.

February 21, 2019 7:58 am

I definitely understand this obsession with tea. My husband is a Tea-maniac and I feel like a third wheel when he has his chai. Looking forward to participating in this blog train.

Chai was the last thing I expected! I am thrilled to have found a fellow Chai lover though! Lovely reading this quirky post!

when i got married my husband used to call me “chaha-baaj” now he also drinks lot of tea like me 🙂
I completely understand your love for tea, I love it so much that I never waste it. I tell my son if we ar ein rush in morning ” chai ki bezzati mat karo, let me finish it first ” now you know we are in the same boat.

Haha this was funny yet so true! I must admit though, my true love is coffee, not chai ?

February 24, 2019 11:59 am

I have already admitted to my hatred for tea STILL I loved your piece, so that says quite a bit. You built it up so beautifully and ended with such a sweet surprise

Pragnya Mishra
February 24, 2019 12:19 pm

I love the plots when I guess the ending wrong. I was expecting a human or a pet or even a book, but never chai. It was a refreshing way to start a valentine special blog train. Loved it.

February 24, 2019 3:12 pm

Chai is bae. And the way you have gone beyond to express your love for it is amusing. Just like a craftsmanship you have weaved your words to bring out a plain thing like tea. Great blog post.

Aruna Menon
February 24, 2019 5:42 pm

A love story most of us Indians would have experienced …. Nice build up… I thought it might be a pet …..
Loved your blog too ….

Happy writing

February 25, 2019 11:34 am

That would be my husband for sure! For him chai is the ultimate love of his life. Such a wonderful blog Vartika.

Haha… very well written Vartika! only an ardent chai lover could have expressed it the way you have. I have a few friends who are crazy about their cuppa chai, and door kaha jao, my husband can have it any time of day and night. absolutely loved it.

February 27, 2019 9:47 am

February 27, 2019 3:00 pm

February 27, 2019 7:01 pm

Wonderful way to express your love for Tea ..Beautiful writeup ??

February 28, 2019 8:38 am

Chai as a real surprise…..then I again scrolled back to relate each of your expressions I could connect easily. Tea is indeed a real stress buster and comes to rescue when one needs to relax. Great thought and well expressed.

LOL! Too good! When I started reading, I thought it was going to be some hot, steamy, romance. It was “hot and steamy’ alright! I am in the mood for chai now. 😀

That was an interesting love story…though I am not a Tea lover, I have a few friends who absolutely cannot survive without tea.

I thought you were narrating instances with your pet but the sudden twist landed on Chai. Chai is mine favourite passtime, same pinch.

March 1, 2019 6:50 pm

Through out each line and each sentence you made me feel like who is that luckiest obsession of yours. When I know it is chai – aww I felt like I love my chai the same way like you did. Its a great great writeup!!

March 1, 2019 8:12 pm

This was beginning to sound like a intense love story till you unfolded the mystery! Very humourous i must add, and yes only a tea lover can understand your lovevfor tea! Totally nailed it!!


[…] We had heard about this sad love story related to this spot so came to witness the beauty. These rock pillars are popular for providing a bird’s view of the gorgeous surroundings. The chamber between the two massive rocks is called the Devil’s Kitchen. It was covered with mist and clouds so we could not get a clear view for a long time but it was majestic. It was a perfect place to sit, absorb the nature, soothe your eyes, enjoy the cool breeze and clear sky. The only thing I missed was my cup of chai […]
