    This is as silly as it gets... This was my response to a challenge to use three words( which are in bold) in a tale...


    He was thirty five
    She was in her twenties
    He was a pedigreed Londoner
    She, from the subcontinent
    He felt colour and religion were of no matter
    She had a face that shone with joie de vivre
    He watched her every evening by the Thames
    She was his raison d’ etre, he felt
    He believed in oriental Karma
    She was destined to be his
    He didn’t know how to approach her
    She once was accompanied by a sardar
    He followed the Indian that evening
    She was worth any trouble
    He befriended the affable sardar
    She must have a name, an address he groaned
    He bought pints of ale for his new friend
    She was worth every single pound
    He even started dining at Tandoori Nights
    She was worth all the antacids he gulped down later
    He felt his love grow more and more intense
    She seemed unaware of all the havoc in his life
    He met her along with his new Indian friend by the Thames
    She as always, was happy, laughing and bubbling
    He exclaimed, ‘God! What a girl!
    She is rambunctious!’
    He looked at his Indian friend who, shaking his head, said
    She? No sir, she is Punjabi…. and she is my wife
    He knew enough of Indian society
    She was wedded…. for life and forever
    He knew there was no chance for him
    She obviously adored her consort, he realized
    He accepted that his love story had been ephemeral
    She blissfully continued her riverside jaunts
    He nursed his broken heart in solitude.

    Dear Twinsmom
    Of all the love triangles I had come across in my life, this one is the jolliest! What an affable and considerate loser our hero is! Looks like it is attributable to the antacids he kept swallowing! It is the acid that causes the killer instinct and he had it under control thankfully!
