The frenzied plight of corporate bonded labour (really, you want a polished term – “corporate executive”), shuttled him to the unknown terrains. Is there any need to go with such a concocted jarring phrase? But yeah, I am “typing” after a while and there is an intrinsic predisposition to fit to the stylistic quotient established with a few ---

I was not sure about the travel but yet I was longing to bring back a few treasured moments. And is there anything more interesting than being with another fellow human being? I was striving to establish a link with him. At first, it was due to my savage spirit yearning for reprisal!

Why so? Rewind!

The man who invoked the powerful tool of “Distrust” in the forum against me! Later he politely responded “I don’t like bulletins. My “distrust” means, “bulletins are not welcome”. Well, it was pre historic age of the forum where in bulletins can be guarded only by means of “distrust”. I was baptized by someone in the forum that, unless you don’t shoot bulletins after penning a post, you will be thrown to ruthless monsters in hell and your existence is subjected to subjugation.

Back to desert

He was a kind of genuine soul who is marooned in this digital plantation with a care free attitude. He don’t have an obsession to be heard but alas, he is one of the “most heard” human being in the forum. He is the one who believed in creating a mansion out of each brick thrown against him by faceless entities. He is flowing like a gentle stream, in his own sweet and honest ways ----- Well, I have proved myself fit to be a bard or sycophant --- No regrets :-)

He was there in the airport for a couple of minutes to sit with me without having coffee from Starbucks. My mobile phone with some prepaid amount is all yours. Am I indulging in some kind of reverie? After the tiresome sessions of unproductive meetings and evaluation, I was dying to have some fresh air. He was there on all evenings. Here goes your prepaid metro rail ticket ---- feel free to roam where ever you want to. Well, it is getting eerie and unbelievable. It's been long since I ever experienced simple and humble hospitality.

He got a condition! Feel free to have food with me, but dare not waste a single item. Chew what you can swallow. He is very clear on his terms. Well, I cannot afford another round of “distrust” and hence became more responsible which is quite unlikely of me.

Together we traveled in metro, boat, cab ----- we crossed the territories and reached Sharjah just to have a cup of coffee. The man who is having company of books enriched me with his interesting analogies of the Russian characters, its contemporary relevance, and adaptation in regional movies.

Well ---- while you bid adieu at Terminal 3 with a smiling face; I realize, this travel would have been an unpleasant quandary is sand dunes! Salute to the wonderful person behind the id “paulsb”.

Paul – I am out of sight and out of touch. But, friendships do away with “give and take”. You are unique! Don’t distrust me for this untimely post : -)
