Finally we meet – part 2

Filed under: Conversation,Fiction,SRK Conversations — Cris @ 16:02

This seems to have become a habit of mine. These SRK conversations! And they all start the same way. Here goes…

I was sleeping, as I have decided I will since I found out that was the best way to spend life in the air. SRK woke me up again. “Hullo so we meet again mah lady”. I yawned, and as is my usual habit spend the next few seconds blinking. He went on “Not much change in you since we last met is there?”

“This is my second time in a plane. I don’t risk being conscious”

“You mean there is no risk if you are not awake?”


“Oh… well then here goes… rock a bye baby on a plane-top”

“What are you doing?”

“Lulling you of course. If you want an Indian one theres one of my own. Ahistha ahistha”

“Err you know maybe you should just stick to acting”

“You think I am no singer”

“Oh everybody is a singer. Some are just bad singers”

“Haha alright you win. So you know me this time right”

“‘Yeah you are SRK”

“That’s progress. And check this out, I remember you are SS”

“Wrong. I am C”

“Err C as in California?”

“C as in Cris”

“Whatever happened to the good old SS I thought I admired in our last meeting”

“Well you can start admiring C now. SS is now known as C”

“Goodness! Please don’t mind a grown up man cry but this is breaking my heart. You happen to have a hanky?”

“Tut tut dear boy. Don’t be silly”

“But why.. [sniff sniff]… did you.. [sob sob]… do it.. [sniff sniff]”

“I shoulda done it long back. I was ignoring it all this while”

“Ignoring what”

“The name C. You see SRK, dear boy, names are like men”

“They are?”

“Yeah. You fall in love with one, and you know you belong to that one. No use trying to attach yourself anywhere else. The one for you will keep coming back to you. So I knew there was only one solution.”


“Yup. And so after a painless divorce with SS – which I should say was like a child-marriage for me, I had no say in it and I was a minor – I am now happy with C”

“Well good for you I hope it lasts forever”

“Dont you worry SRK. I know you are dying to part with yours. If you want any help you know where the expert lives”

“On a plane where she sleeps every now and then she feels like imagining herself and me to be”

“You got that right Mistah”


  1. names ARE like men. And the name SRK is the kind of name who likes names of the same sex.

  2. C is a good name.. But S is a beautiful name..

    But Still I fell in love with C when I came to know why C took over S as a name.

    Like Shakesphere said ‘A rose called by anyother name will smell as sweet’, so is S when called by C will still be as sweet.. 🙂
