For normally_crazy - A truly filmi story
I was reading today's mid-day and found this story. It reminded me of Gautam ;-), so posting it here.

hehe... it is indeed a very filmy story, complete with holes in it!
For example, i couldnt understand the whole "message on a napkin" story. Did he intend to make a paper plane out of the napkin, run to the boarding gate and throw it at her?
And, if her phone was switched off, then how could he call her and tell her that he had sent her a message?
Did he finally manage to convince the AAI official to make the announcement?
Oh well, i guess "kahaani poori filmy hai" and my questions are pointless. After all, as they say, Love Is Blind (to logic, perhaps)

Good one! Hope they stick to their travel plans (read married life) and there are no cancellations due to bad weather (feelings,of course).
Reminds me of a very close friend.He met this lady on a train journey from B'bay to B'lore,and took a liking to her.They exchanged phone numbers,and he kept pulling her leg saying that she'd not pass her BComm exams. Quite head-strong personalities,both of them. She passed her exams 2 months later,called this guy & literally shouted out that she had passed.
They ended up meeting again,1-2 years later in NY.She happened to live in the hotel right across the guest house where my friend was put up,while on a business trip.
Well,the following year they got married,and now have 3 kids. Been over 14 years,I guess.

However, I would like to know why it reminds you of Gautam?

Really super, filmy, emotional stuff with some twist and turn here and there. Wow! When is the wedding?
Few unanswered questions like Amitoj's comes to mind though.. Care to explain for us tubelights?
Great story, Nitin! These are stuff which makes us forget the hardships of our daily life. Thanks for sharing here.
@Mods, why don't we make this the official Filmy story thread of Team-bhp?

Total time-pass story. If the phone was switched off how did he call her to tell her he passed her a message that too on a paper napkin. The theory of sending a message on a napkin is really original, were the guys at the airport or some restaurant passing around napkins. Then the PA announcement is so overdone. If the guy already had the number, couldn't he wait till the phone switched on after reaching the respective destinations. Worst the girl actually reverted this fellows feelings.
Arre! In todays small connected world finding the contact details of someone, especially from your own college isn't a big deal at all. That exactly has taken the charm out meeting someone after a long time.
