My Crush with Insurance Agent : Story

The Moment we hear the sound, “Insurance Agent”, we may think about some creepy looking,half baked,middle aged guy mostly a relative or a neighbor with a fake smile in the face. We always try to hide ourselves from them not for one reason but for unexplainable reasons.

Even I was little hesitating when I heard my sister say, That some Insurance Agent wants to meet me.

Sister : Are you free this weekend?
Me : Yes, why?
Sister : A Insurance Agent asked me if your Brother would be free this weekend.
Me : Look, I am not interested in seeing any Agents now.
Sister : Okay Then, I will then inform my friend.
Me : What Friend?
Sister : My College Friend, Her sister is an Insurance Agent.
Me : Oh, Didn’t She find any other better Jobs?
Sister : No, I think She has joined First Year MBA in IIT, Chennai.

For Few Minutes, I could not talk anything. My Mind was in its own Thoughts, “What is she telling me?. I have never heard anything which sounded so strange.” After a deep breathe, I looked for my sister. She was as usual talking in Cell Phone to her friend I suppose, and as walked closer, she lowered her voice and looked at me.

Me : I think its fine to meet your Friend’s sister this weekend.
Sister : Okay Fine, I will inform her.

As I walked away from my sister, She continued talking in her Phone.
Then after few Hours, I walked back to my sister and asked her to give my number if needed.

As Days passed by, A got a call from an Unknown number after about say Two weeks. But, I was in midst of work, so I could not attend during that time. Hence, I called back after about say One Hour.

Me: Hello, I got a call from this number.
Other End : Silence
Me : May I know who is this.
Other End : Sorry, Is this Suresh?
Me : Yes
Other End : Hi Suresh, I am (Her Name) and I am your sister’s friend.
Me : Oh, Ya..I remember You.
Other End : Sorry, I could have called you before.
Me : Fine, No Problem
Other End : If you are free tomorrow, can we meet?
Me : Ya Sure. where?
Other End : Where ever you wish. Or I can come to your Home.
Me : Yes, Home would be better.
Other End : Will meet you tomorrow. Bye
Me : Ya, Bye

I was sitting in a chair and I got up. I walked towards mirror, saw myself and returned back to chair.
I felt that her voice is cute and matured. I wanted to meet her. I looked up the ceiling and took a breathe.
That night, I was not able to sleep properly as her voice was repeating in my mind and to somehow see her.
I kept the alarm at 9:00AM and I was too late to notice that it was already past 10:00. I got up to make sure I am ready and not to be sleepy in case if she arrives. I was hesitating to call and ask about her status and I waited. After my Lunch, I got angry and went back to sleep. My Mother informed that She is leaving out and asked me to check the gate at times. I almost nodded in sleep but I forgot. It was about 5:00PM and I heard the door bell.

Suddenly, I remembered if She had come and quickly got up from the bed. Hurried to the basin to wash my face and applied powder to unmask the sleepy tone. I opened the door after changing to a Pant and Shirt.

She : Hello Suresh. Sorry to disturb you. I hope you are not sleeping.
Me : (Long Pause) Oh, No, No Problem. I was just inside my room. So could not hear the bell.

I asked her to come in and sit in a chair in the Hall. I went inside the kitchen with a sign to bring some water.

Inside the Kitchen, I did not know what to do. I walked here and there. My Instinct bounced with random thoughts, “Suresh, She is looking too good and gorgeous…She is also modern and well dressed..Think she is slightly taller than you…Nah..No,She might be wearing high heals” The Water overflowed and I closed the tap.

Me: So, You are from which Insurance.
She : I am from (Mute) Insurance
Me (Mind Voice) : Surprised, Not the one which I regularly hear.
She : Thanks for the Water.
Me : Okay, How much should I pay and what will be the returns?
She (Smiled) : No, Its a Term Insurance.
Me : (Pause) okay, How much I need to invest.

She started to explain me slowly and I continued to listen. Within Ten minutes, with the level of knowledge she has and her entrepreneurship spirit, I fell in Love with her.

I called my Friend to test their Insurance Knowledge. When they talked like me, I laughed and explained them what she informed.

Me : Have you got any Insurance
Friend : Yes.
Me : How much is the Sum Assured
Friend : No, We have to pay around (some money) and in the end they will return (some money).
Me(Laughs) : What you are talking is not Sum Assured. You are insuring or Investing?
Friend: I cannot understand what you are talking.
Me : In Simple words,Term Insurance is the actual insurance. Others are just Investment Products in the name of insurance.
Friend : So what.
Me : What you have taken is not Insurance actually.

I once again thought about what she informed during the conversation.

Me : So, in Term Insurance, I wont get any returns?
She : Yes, Term Insurance is the actual Insurance. Its like a Vanilla Ice-Cream.
Me : Then, the money will come only in case of Claim and the beneficiary will get the amount.
She : That’s right. If I sign a Term Insurance and in case if I die, my nominee will get huge amount(Sum assured) based on the contract where the same would be a mere amount if I happened to get any other Insurance(Investment Insurance).
Me: So, Only Term Insurance meets the actual need of Insurance which is to protect the Family as if the insured person is alive.
She : Yes, That’s Correct.
Me : So, Why not other Agents sell Term Insurance.
She : Its because, the commissions are too low in Term Insurance.
Me : Fine. Why did you join as Insurance Agent.
She : I joined my MBA now and I wanted to be an Entrepreneur and I felt that I am weak in Sales. I also thought that being an Insurance Agent could help to overcome my shyness and to build my sales and social skills.

She did not ask or force me to buy a policy. She just explained and left. I was moved by her positive thinking and she motivated me. I wanted to meet her once again not to get an policy from her but to make her as my nominee.

“Insurance is a subject matter of solicitation”

Love to be Loved : A Love Story

The Night was Dark and it was raining heavily. The Watch read 10:30PM. She got some calls and She was busy talking in the Phone.I looked at her face and it was so bright in the moonlight. We both were standing in the Bus Stop and there was no sign of Bus or any movement.

I looked at her ID Card and I came to know She was working in my Company but I have not seen her till date. I thought to myself that She may be new to the Company as I would have known any beautiful girl in and around my space. She turned towards me and looked at me and She had a laugh suddenly.

For her, I should have looked like Fun loving Software Engineer with a Spike in my head and a French Beard. I wanted to take this as my advantage and I approached her. She got a call again and was saying, “why do you want to struggle in this rain; I will manage and come in an Auto. You please dont worry”

She once again saw me and had a sweet smile in her face. I looked up and said, “Seems Its raining heavily” for which giggled and said, “Ya Ya”. I continued asking..So,where is your House and by the same time a Auto Passed alongside and She waived her hand. The Auto Stopped and She was about to move. For me, It was like I have asked a Question and she is about to move and was wondering if I got a Bulb.

Suddenly She stopped and asked where do you want to go and my fused bulb started to glow in the dark.She said to me that I am also going that way and if you want we can share the ride. I got in and It was like a Share Auto and She was sitting on the Opposite Side in the Cusion and I was sitting in the Wooden Board. I thought She would think me like a gentleman by not sitting next to the beautiful girl.

For me, It was more convienent to watch her face in the Lightening strike and her face was glittering in the Flash.I was waiting for the lightening to strike again to see her face again and again in the Flash. I could sense that She was feeling little tensed and was seen messaging curiosly.

I asked if She is okay and asked her name in the middle of it. She said her name but did not ask mine which I thought was normal and I did not feel much worried about it. Even if I was worried I did not want to show it in my face atleast. As time passes by,I was feeling worried as She was sitting silent and I am still waiting if She would ask my name.

I started again introducing myself and my name for which She showed some interest.I was little happy and asked her some questions for which She answered back. I felt some relief when she started talking and had some golden thought that my Journey was set. My Yet Another mind of the Men’s Species was in the exicted state thinking that since she has talked to you, your Life will now become Colourful starting from the Dark.

The Same Mind made me ask her, Which College did you study,the usual and the same Question. For which She said the name of a Woman’s Collage. I started asking about her College Life and She started saying How other girls cut the college and move out with their boyfriends and other such stories which was quite different to hear it from a girl.

Now, the Mind asked a Question which became the twist of the Story. The Question was did you ever love anyone like the other girls in your class? She became silent and It was raising my blood pressure and the auto ride was like a roller coaster for me.

She started by saying No… where I had a feeling like gulping a banana as if it was in the throat, She said completed the sentence saying,”No, I did not have any love near my College since I had a boyfriend near my house. He was there in the same street, the house before my house” She stopped.

It was already dark and I could not see anything when she completed the sentence. I had enough jerk as the auto rushed in the midst of the broken road filled with water. My mind wanted to know what happened after that and asked her,So, What happened after that?

She continued, One Day my family members came to know that I am in affair with this front door boy as one of our nieghbours who saw us informed about this to my parents…My mind was thinking that her family would have somehow emotionally blackmailed and asked her to forget the boy and concentrate on the studies. A lorry crossed with a horn as I was thinking and I could notice that I had infact lost the track on what she was saying and the last words said were like until my marriage.

What? It was like someone is blowing a conch(Sangu) near my ear and my own mind was laughing at me. It was a strange moment in my life as I was not able to laugh nor was not able to cry. Strangely, I also wanted to cry and laugh at the same time which I even could not do. In this confusion I gazed around I could see her lips moving but all I could hear was a OoHoo Sound.

Once the sound reduced I could hear that She was saying, “My Husband will start his own company in the next month and I no longer have to work again”. The Feelings were like I could not breathe nor could say a word. There were no thoughts completely but I was sure that I am alive. I did not move my eyes, legs or the body. This position lasted for some minutes until my mind started a thinking,”So, He is the one whom She was talking to and was messaging all the time?”

“Oh, My God..So, She had fooled me or She had used me to travel with her for her security? I cannot believe anyone, Oh My God…” My mind was blabbering in its own world and at the sametime another mind was insisting me, “Damn,She is such a sweet girl to help you and to let you inside the auto since She had some trust on you. So, Be greatful to her, man” I could feel that I am breathing and that I have come back to normal.

I thought my second mind was right, I should be greatful to her and She did not fool me; It was me who wanted to start a conversation with her. My Mind started to cool down with this thoughts and it definetely had to cool down anyhow. What else it can do in this situation?

Finally the Brake was applied and She thanked me and got down from the Auto and me who was thinking in some world seemed to have blabbered and asked her if she was in Facebook (To give an impression to maintain the friendship he had in the ride.) After the words have come out,I had some strange feelings if I had friendship in the ride which was quite disturbing me. But,She gave me the one and I did not peep out to look at her husband and the Auto started moving.

Then, After few months of Dry Life, I just thought to give a try on her Facebook since I was bored. So,I went inside her Profile.There I saw your Pic in her Friend List with a beautiful and Cute smile and I gave you the Friend Request. I did not really expect that you would accept me and I am thankful to God to have you as my Wife. “So”, My Wife started to ask a Question. I already knew what She was going to ask. Hence, before even she completed her sentence, I started, “Yes, I already knew that you are her Junior and that I also had some idea that you can spend time with me by bunking your classes.

I completed saying this story to my Wife and She said Idiot in her own sweet manner and came running to hit me saying, “You.. You….”

 

Its Purely Love – Romantic Love Story

Its Purely Love
– Romantic Love Story

He was all alone. He was swimming in the Lake.
The world is so beautiful and yet he is alone.
He enjoyed the life to the core.
The Trees, Fruits, Birds, Sunlight, Rain, Cloud.
Nature was at its Best.
They all surrounded him yet he was alone.
He never thought he was alone.
He just enjoyed each and every moment.
There was no Time for him to think
Nor There was no Time in his World.
He don’t know God and There was no need for him to Thank God

He was all alone.He was swimming in the Lake.
A beautiful girl of course came by the way.
He never saw anything like this in his Life
He saw Birds,deer,tiger,crocodile and snake.
But what is this? He was in fear and his heart beat raised.
He ran and ride himself behind a tree.
He peeped his eyes from the bark of the trees and looked her!
Wow! I am thinking and I came to know that I am Me.
So, Who is this new person in this beautiful world.
Aaah!! A Loud Noise is heard.
The Snake had bite his leg and She walked towards the noise.

Yes, She saw him for her first time.
She could not control her emotions seeing him suffer.
She wanted to help him and touched his legs to suck the poison.
He thought She is coming to hurt him and moved away.
She came forward to remove the poison and saved his Life.
He cried loud and louder. He never felt so much pain.
This is the First time He is feeling the Pain in his Heart!
She had a Red Fruit in her Hand and She gave him.
He eat it and the Poison was completely removed from his body.
She walked away from him after he became normal
He walked behind her and He cannot tolerate her separation.

He thought to spend this beautiful world with her.
To show her the sunrise and to she her smile
He wanted to sit with her and chat under the shady tree.
She said that I am an Illusion and asked him to leave.
He cannot understand anything and He was dying for her.
She walked away crying with tears and moved away from him.
That was the First time he saw someone crying.
He felt the Pain and He had an affection in his mind.
Everything in this beautiful world appeared dark to him.
He wanted someone with him now and being alone made him think.
He thought, thought and thought without enjoying the present.
Suddenly He shouted why are you doing this to me.
What did I do to you and who are you?
He is shouting to God requesting him to bring her back.

Many Years have passed.She came back to see him!
For some years he was sad and unhappy
Then He came to an understanding that there is nothing!
For him Nothing meant Simply Nothing!
He saw her for the Second Time and felt Nothing.
She came slowly towards him and whispered in his ears.
I Love you deeply!
And I was waiting for you all these years.
He opened his eyes and slowly smiled and said:
I Love You and I am no more attached to you.

Avatar for the Trees

Avatar for the Trees – A Talk by Trees in Tropical Forest

Disclaimer : This is an imaginary Post. If the world is Real; this post would also be Real.

Location : A Tropical Rain Forest

Papaya¬† : People fear me since the papaya fruit will likely cause abortion and the pregnant woman usually avoid eating the fruit and even the doctors don’t advice anyone to eat papaya even though I have lot of benefits.

Coconut  : My friends in city used to say that coconut is widely used by people and I am getting costly each day. People are spending Rs.30 to Rs.50 to drink a coconut water. Also, a lot of companies have come up with brands stating 100% Pure Unflavored drink.

Avocado¬† :¬†Wow, I would say, “Coconut Tree,¬†You are great! ” Many¬†don’t know me and many would have not even heard my name. Even though my avocado fruit has properties to reduce cholesterol, I could see cholesterol is still a major problem with people as they have started eating all kind of junk foods.

Sugarcane : I have one objection with you, avocado. Are you sure that people are eating food(I mean Junk Food). I believe they are eating products which are packed, sealed. They just take out the product and eat. Sometimes, they may have to heat the product.

Date : Yes, its true. People are eating Products. I knew this because, I was once exchanged with old iron craps but now some companies have recognized my true worth and have created brands in me.

Papaya : Does it mean that People wont appreciate the true worth and they likely go behind products. Now, few companies have started to recognize the anti-aging properties papaya has and are creating fairness creams, soaps and the sales are also increasing day by day.

Sugarcane : Yes, its true that people wont appreciate the true worth until one day they lose it. People needs everything today including entertainment and instant gratification and they don’t care about the future.

Coconut : what do you mean by they don’t care about future? Are they not developing day by day in Science, Technology and Everything?¬† A lot of deadly disease has been cured and they are sending spaceships to mars to identify if water is present there. To say in short, they have even invented robots to climb and pluck coconuts.

Touch Me Not Plant : Can, I join you guys if you don’t mind. People are developing day by day but they are cutting down the trees. Don’t you know that? We are the ones who provide them oxygen to breathe and they are destroying us¬†to build houses and companies to live.¬†what they fail to understand is that they need oxygen to live.

Avocado: I believe this is not an issue with people. Its an issue with media. They need to recognize and appreciate the wonders. I am not saying that I need recognition as I am less recognized. Almost the world have watched a film called Avatar, why its because of media.

Sugarcane : People watch Avatar and no one really cared to take some action even though the movie was about trees. How many planted a tree after watching the movie? I don’t think media can help in shaping the future of the world.

Date : Yes, its true. Media cares only about sensation and people care only if something is interesting or entertaining. People think they have lot of worries and they don’t bother about anything. Even they watch only Entertainment movies.

Papaya : Lets come to the point. So, what steps we can take in order to protect ourselves. Can we start a union just like people do to safeguard their rights? We have to teach a lesson to them so that they can understand what will happen if we stop breathing.

Touch Me Not Plant : The best idea to teach a lesson to them is by creating a avatar.

Coconut : Wait.. Wait.. what are to trying to say.

Touch Me Not Plant : Wait. Let me explain. We need to create an Avatar who seem like a human and we have to enter the city and create chaos. Slowly, we will penetrate the city.

Coconut : If they don’t understand, we shall wipe them out just like what the villains did in Avatar? Am I right? So, who is the Avatar.

All : Its the Money Plant!
