Prem and she lived in the same street. They used to travel by the same bus to go to their colleges. They fell in love with each other, when they were in their penultimate year of their college. His full name was Prem Anand and she used to make fun of him calling 'POli sAmiyAr' (in reference to Premananda). They were determined enough to see their love through till the end and let their parents know after both get a job. Everything went on fine until few months before their graduation they fought for some silly reason and there was an ego-clash. Final exams time and then there was her father's transfer to another town when Prem was out of station for his project.
Things went so fast, that before they realized, they were in different places. Since he studied BE and she BSc, they didnt have any common friends. He immediately joined his job and went to Bangalore. He felt so heavy and so bad and was wishing that the fight didnt take place. After a year in work, he went to US for doing his MS, completed and got a job there itself. After a while, there was pressure from his family for his marriage. He had to take a decision soon, but he couldnt forget her. He went through all the online matrimonial sites to see if her profile is there, in vain. He gave up his hopes and chose a girl from a US-based matrimony site.
He called up the 1-888- number, entered all the info and finally came the operator: "Hi, this is Nancy, how can I help you today?". That voice stunned him, and he was speechless for a moment.. it rang bells inside his head.. he regained his composure and said "Hi.. umm.. this is pOli sAmiyAr.... I am sorry.. Prem Anand here". There was a total silence from that side too.. after a few 'hello's, that voice said 'Yennadaa.. ennai love pannittu ippo verey ponnai kalyanam pannikkalAmnu idea-va?".
