334. The Unrevealed Secret

A secret confided is no longer a Secret

I am troubled beyond explanation. I am hiding a secret for almost ten years. Now, it is the right time to reveal my secret.I have many secrets to tell my readers. But the secret that i am going to reveal now, tops the list of secrets that are stacked-up in my brain cells.


This is a ten year long secret that was between me and my friend,Ridley. His full name is Ridley Scott. I call him Ridsco. The incident happened in the year 1999. I had just completed my schooling and was waiting for my exam results. Ridsco was British and when ever i visit London, he took me around in his car. He was such a funny guy and even though he was old, he had a very pretty young girlfriend. He knew that I liked her.He never allowed me to talk to her freely. He was the possessive boyfriend types.It was the summer of 1999 and I went to England. Ridsco and I painted the streets of London in all possible colors. He used to talk about all his ex-girlfriends and I used to tell him about Renu. On one such occasion I was so sad and in order to cheer me up, he took me to a drink- joint. We ordered a couple of beers and started drowning our sorrows in alcohol. Even after a couple of mugs, I was uncontrollably sad. So he jokingly quipped,"Hey Chriz! Cheer up man. Why don't you act in a movie? I will direct the movie". Though it was just a joke, that one line cheered me up and I said," Ridsco! If you are really gonna make a movie with me as the Hero, I will be Happy".

He never expected me to take his joke very seriously. But when he realised that I was indeed serious he had no other option but to direct a movie with me.(Note to my readers: This is a true incident and I am not making this up).The next day, he invited a few of his friends and we had a discussion on the movie.The whole incident was like a dream for me. I called my parents and told them that I am gonna act in an English Movie. They were surprised indeed.But my dream was short lived because my exam results were announced and that meant I had to rush back to India to attend interviews to get a Engineering seat in some college in India. Ridsco was very sad that I had to go back to India. I still remember his words when he came to see me off at the airport,"Chriz! Only you could act in this movie. But now I have to find some one else to fill your shoes".
I came back to India and got an Engineering seat in Pondicherry. (The above picture is the map of Pondicherry).Days went by and I got immersed in my studies. Very soon I completed one year of Engineering. I had a few friends; we were greatly involved in music and movies. We formed our college Rock Band and started performing in all the inter-college competitions. When ever a movie was released in the city, we would be the first ones to watch the movie. Some movies that I watched with my friends are still in my memory. Some of the movies were Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Cast Away,Erin Brockovich,Gladiator and Traffic. I seldom cry in a movie hall. But I had tears in my eyes when I watched the movie Gladiator. My friends laughed at me and made fun of me saying that I was a cry baby. I wiped my tears and smiled with them.
Before you start calling me a cry baby, I have a confession to make. I cried that day because when I was watching the movie Gladiator, the parting words that Ridsco said played hide and seek with my thoughts.
"Chriz! Only you could act in this movie. But now I have to find some one else to fill your shoes"
This morning I was going through my old photo collection and a particular photo that was mailed to me by Ridsco welled up my eyelids with tears. Check the photo here [link]. For the past ten years, only Ridsco and I knew this secret. Now I have revealed it to you. Will you keep this as a secret?

  13. I need some water Chriz :P:P. Vayaru valikardhu. Gosh, what if you are not quite as good at languages (which I believe is NOT the case)... you are stacked with brain cells which can bring humour to any situation. And yes now that your secret is known to so many, will it be a secret at all?

    Some tips to avoid being considered dangerous (you could add them as disclaimers):

    (1) Readers are humbly instructed or imperiously requested not to have food, drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic and H20), breakable material in front of them when they read your blog.

    (2) And those readers who are working on a paper or are studying with one of the above mentioned stuff on hand all the time multi-tasking by reading your blog, shall not ask for compensation from you :P.

    (3) No one may ask you to pay for medical expenses caused because of the stomach aches created by reading your posts; however you may direct those with headache to your blog so they can ease their minds a little.

    (4)I do not know how to give away these blog awards; if I knew, I would give you one... but oops... even for that you might have to give a humorous title for humour I have realised is definitely not my cup of tea... not of the exalted kind you practise anyway.

    This was a "snorter" :P. Loved it.
