When we talk of Dolly, the first thoughts which come to our mind are, treachery, greed and beauty. I have written loads about her natural characteristics of treachery and greed, but seldom did I write what Amar narrated me about her beauty. Dolly was a demanding girl friend, as to define the finiteness of which, she would pretty clearly state what she wanted, and what she expected, and she would also make it clear in unclear words that she would get disappointed, if her demands were not met. And, the platitude of Amar was to give all he had to make Dolly happy. Now this amalgamation landed the relationship into a dangerous situation, where one was trying to grab desperately all he had, and the other was eager to waive off all he had, to see a smile on her face. Viola, I wish, Amar had told this to me earlier, I would have burnt the veil of Love, she had carved over Amar’s eyes, by promising of marriage and what not.
So when the days of Amar’s trip to India were coming closer, Dolly would gradually infuse the shady but magnificent demands she had of items to be bought from Tokyo through the lengthy Skype video sessions, and those demands would be conveyed so sweetly, that you won’t even imagine in the wildest of dreams that Dolly was doing all this to leave Amar. So, one fine day, Dolly said over the phone, please get me a Mac set. The naive Amar, thought she was talking of an Apple MacBook, and was curious as to what she would do of that, as even he did not buy it for himself so far. Later she explained, that she was actually asking for a Mac make-up kit, which happened to be one of the costliest brands in the cosmetics world. Amar, at once found out a couple of Mac stores, and the nearest one was near the Tokyo JR station, so he planned a Sunday trip to that place. All hard work to no use, as he just couldn’t decipher what those beauty products did, so he thought he would take Dolly out to the Mac store in India, and he did the same. He gifted her exactly what she wanted, just in India, however this did upset Dolly for a while. LOL what kind of girl was she, she would measure the worth of gifts, by the cost of ‘em. It narrows my belief that, gifts were meant to express your feelings. It rather seemed as if gifts for Dolly were some thing she had rights on, and for Amar it seemed the expression of his fear not to loose Dolly under any circumstances. This whole concept looked so fucked up from a third man’s spot. I don’t blame Dolly, only because, she was enjoying what fell into her platter, but I seriously want to slap Amar for all the foolishness he exhibited.
Anyways, finally coming to the topic of beautiful necklace. One fine Saturday, Amar just went strolling the filthy pricey shops of Roppongi, in search for a bead necklace which Dolly has asked him to bring. Amar, was dedicated I must say, he would sit in girl shops, for 3 hours, try and understand the importance of each handicraft, the communication would be purely in Japanese, and he would just lookup each word by his side in a dictionary he was carrying. I mean, who does this, to be cheated and thrown away. So, he kept on searching for those funny handmade bead necklaces, and every night, he would return home with a couple. Over the Skype he would show them to Dolly, and she would pass on that broad smile of happiness. She would call different names, make faces, and Amar would just be pampered and flattered to the 7th sky. Never in his wickedest dream he would have fathomed that she was not having any feelings for him at all. To be honest, when he would narrate things to Anvit, even he would be affirmative and he would always cascade him to go ahead and attain her. Same was the case with me, I was too happy that Amar fell into love with this girl, and that excitement blinded all of us, to ignoring the greed of that girl. So I blame myself and Anvit, to have pushed Amar into this. He wouldn’t have gone a step ahead without attaining proper approval from us.
Holy crap !! Greed can ruin lives, and I couln’t get a better example of after seeing what happened with Amar.
