Love struck.

                  Life is a bag of surprises. What might pop out at what hour,  we never know. A bit like the magician’s trunk. I was so lost in the day to day inanities, that I failed to realise when I was struck with Cupid’s arrow! Yes, Cupid’s arrow, as in, ‘falling in love’. I am at an age where I very well know that ‘love’ is nothing but a chemical imbalance caused by our crazy hormones. The result is, we behave like absolute dim wits, who know not what they do! But, in spite of that, here I am, with a heart lost to a man, far beyond my reach.

               Oh, come on! Don’t start giggling and calling me insane! Love has no shelf life. It can happen anytime, anywhere. It ain’t in our hands, is it?  I realised I had fallen in love quite recently. I mean, I realised it was love and not just infatuation. And, believe me, as I said earlier, it is a MAN I am in love with. A real, live man. An older man, to be precise. No young guys for me. Don’t you know, wine tastes better with age?  What? Is it getting weirder and weirder? Well, thats life!

             Now, I know you will wonder why am I announcing it to the world. Well, for the simple reason that, you all are my dear friends. Don’t we share our innermost feelings  with our friends? So, here’s his picture: he is tall, dark, handsome, with a voice that makes me go weak in the knees. Yes, it is his voice that did the trick! And, the salt and pepper hair, those intense eyes and that electrifying personality. Oh! Merely thinking about him makes my heart skip a beat, too many!

              What did you say? Does my husband know about it? Yes, sir, he does! I told him. In fact, I made the announcement the other day. He seems to be okay with it.  Look, I confess, I am happily married, but,  what can I do? I have a heart so big. Two men can easily reside there, happily, ever after.

           His name? Didn’t you all realise it by now?.Who else has that baritone voice, that striking personality, which at the age of 70 plus can give youngsters a run for their money? Yes, Amitabh Bachchan, who else?! The sexy old man of our very own Bollywood, who makes a million female hearts go aflutter. Well, mine did! So, here is fodder for gossip for all you bored-with-life souls out there. Go ahead, talk. Have a good day! Hope you all learn to enjoy life a bit, fall in love, a bit. It is fun!

           Oops!  Forgot to mention, there are a couple of them more in line. A certain Mr. Gere and Mr. Ford, from overseas, too, took away my heart and swept me off my feet!
