He was young, handsome, tall, on a Royal Enfield bike, looked very attractive, made heads turn. A dream of a guy for many females. He was my friend. I don’t know where he is now. The story goes back to four decades.
He found comfort in my company. Guys were jealous of him and girls would hang around him.
He had four girls whom he would date regularly, one at a time. I asked him how serious is he about these dates. He said it’s just dating, man, what the hell are you expecting ? Marriage ? FO.
Interestingly, I happened to meet all these females. They respected me since I was his friend. Soon I realised, 3 of them were hopelessly in love with this guy and he was literally taking them for a ‘ride’ on his bike.
How can I help these stupid females, I was wondering. One of the worse time to advise someone is when they are in love or think they are in love. If I tell them the truth, they will lynch me.
Let’s start with the fourth one, a super smart and an attractive female. I asked her, whether she is in love with this guy ?
She gave me a hard look and asked, what do you think ? Well.. err…I dont know.
Why do you ask ?Did he ask you to ask me ?
I guess, you are worried about me and want to warn me that he is simply a flirt ?
I didn’t say anything.I was expecting her to tell me to mind my own business. Instead.
I appreciate your concern. I know the guy. You know there are three others, I am not stupid as those asses. Like he thinks he is taking me for a ride, so am I , that too on his bike. I like to be seen around with him.
It’s fun, let it go on as long as it lasts, I don’t care. If he thinks he can include me in his ditch lists, he has got a thing or two coming his way. I make him spend money over me, movies, restaurants, gifts and make him run after me. Are you planning to tell him what I said.
Should I leave the other three alone ? At that age I thought the whole world required help and I am here for that. Let them experience a heart break, after all its all in the game and part of growing up.
One day I was at his place, when he got a phone call and his mother was proudly saying, he is a James Bond, plenty of girls after him. And why not, he is such a handsome boy, let him enjoy. What about you, Rajan ?
I just smiled..
You need looks for having plenty of girl friends, I was stunned by the lady’s comments.
What about your daughter, is she a member of some James bond’s girls club.
She is my daughter and I have brought her up well, you dare not talk to me like that.
I got up, well those girls your son is screwing around , also happens to be someone’s daughter or sister. It has got nothing to do with up bringing. It’s exploitation of innocent human weaknesses. Take care that your daughter don’t pay the price for your Casanova son’s activities.
I walked away leaving behind a few red faces, the mother and daughter’s, while the son was still cooing over the phone.
Today, I wonder where they are, has the mother realised how to respect women and taught her son the same, understand gender equality, are the children married do they have daughters, understands what’s up bringing, show the children the direction and help them to think instead of feeding strict instructions, understand values of life, give them freedom to grow, make them listen to their inner voice, teach them to love, care and share…..
