Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

The Goddess



Swaroop a young engineer and a talented guy who’s greatest interest was photography and photo editing. It was his passion to capture beautiful moments and then groom it into more beautiful pictures which stunned the viewers.

 Lately he was very much distracted and couldn’t focus on anything. All these started on that day when he was invited for a cultural program in his office and he was supposed to photograph the event. Event was a cultural treat of classical dance. Swaroop was very much occupied in covering the event and did it to his best. His was asked to share the snaps at the earliest, so he started working on the snaps as soon as he came back. He choose snaps after snaps and started editing them, at one snap his heart beat skipped seeing a beautiful woman who looked heavenly. Posing beautifully in one of the Goddess’s posture she actually looked like one. Swaroop couldn’t trust his eyes and couldn’t believe that he took that snap. He was unable to recollect when and how this was taken.
After this one snap he could hardly do anything other than staring at the snap endlessly and editing it.  And next day he met the organizers of the event handed over the snaps and also found out that all the dancers were internal employees. Swaroop from that day onwards had tried all possible ways to find out who that girl was but all in vain, in a company of 25000 employee he couldn’t manage to find even name of that girl who was like heavenly angel for him.
And today was one such opportunity, the Photography Competition and Swaroop knew that this could be a very good opportunity to meet that girl. So he had chosen that beautiful snap of that girl, carefully edited to its best and framed it with beautiful frame. Swaroop took special interest in organizing and was there at the competition venue whole day but actually he was expecting a beautiful woman to walk by enquiring about her snap being portrayed in the competition. Employees started coming into the venue and no doubt almost everybody stopped for a moment longer at the picture named ‘The Goddess’ which had temple background and a stunningly beautiful woman in the foreground. Everybody was interested to know who captured it.

Smitha and Kalyani who were all engrossed in the pictures displayed were walking down the aisle admiring at the beauty of the snaps and discussing about many aspects in them.  Beautiful, confident Smitha was all busy in counting the number of men at the venue who were eyeing at her. Kalyani, who always felt inferior about her looks, wondered if anyone would even notice her presence. She always admired the confidence Smitha carried, Smitha’ s support had got the best of Kalyani on stage. They both danced in the group but Kalyani’s dedication in dancing used to transform her to different personality on stage, her smile was admired, she attracted the audience and her beautiful expressions captured the audience. Many were mesmerized seeing this beauty dancing but offstage Kalyani always remained shy, inferior and neglected.

As the day progressed Swaroop was getting more and more restless, he was near his display “The Goddess” he was being constantly praised and was assured by viewers that he will be winning the competition for this beautiful capture and edits. He just smiled in dismay and told one of the friends that this female may be much more beautiful in real may be his camera has not done justice to capture her beauty but he wished the girl in the snap turns to the event and meets him, that would be the biggest victory for him.

Kalyani having over heard this discussion, silently walked passed that display but on hearing such desperation, Smitha turned to see what they were discussing. She was baffled by the beauty of the snap, she couldn’t believe her eyes, She loudly exclaimed “Oh my god, this is…..” Swaroop came running to her and was stunned to see Smitha though he could not find the resemblance to the snap he knew that it was her.  She turned to Swaroop in complete excitement held his hand and told “Thanks you so much, did you capture this? Oh my god this is my.. my” Swaroop held her hand tightly and told “yes dear I know that is your snap, after seeing you I think I dint do justice! you are so much more beautiful than that” Smitha was confused and looked at her friend Kalyani, only to see Kalyani signaling her not to reveal that snap was kalyani’s  and as the crowd gathered clapping at this union Kalyani silently left the venue with tears in her eyes…

Ramya,I waited for others to comment.It is very well written and made us all wonder what the end would be like.But you chose to give an unexpected twist.
Let this be the beginning of many short stories from you at regular intervals.
It would be easier for the reader if the story is broken up into small paragraphs.
Thanks a bunch for the nice story
