“ye samajh rahaa hai ke paT gayi, usne ghuma ke chhoR deina tha.”
(He imagines that she was in love with him, but she was to let go of him after going around with him for a while.)
Thus spake ‘they‘ a few Days Ago, almost a month after I returned to the National Capital Region, to live and work here, after spending more than a year in a South Indian city.
As anyone who has been following my blog for a while would know, I was undergoing various forms of mental torture while I was there, including threats to my life and property.
An interesting aspect of ‘their’ attempt to manipulate and control my mind, besides the threats and torture, was that I was being ‘offered’ not only Money, but also the ‘prospect’ of ‘marrying’ a rather beauteous co-worker. She was placed strategically, quite often, within my visible range, while I was having lunch at the office cafeteria, or made to walk past from the opposite direction, while I was in the office corridors.
All that while, ‘helpful’ and suggestive comments were being made to try and induce me to fall for her. However, the desired end-result I became clear of only a few days ago, after hearing the comment I’ve mentioned at the beginning of this blog post.
I escaped falling into the Trap not because I became completely aware of ‘their’ shenanigans, but just because I still am quite ‘old-fashioned’ and subscribe to values and principles not much in demand in this day and age.
I figured that some one who stood with ‘them’, who not only threatened and tortured me mentally, but even threatened to kill my parents, could never be a part of my life. I also figured that here was a person who followed ‘their’ instructions to the last letter and, therefore, had no independent thoughts and opinions. So, I would rather not have much to do with such a person. I was also irked by the way ‘they’ spoke of an impending ‘relationship’ in a very derogatory and disrespectful manner. To me, my self-respect ranks far higher than any ‘relationship’, real or imaginary.
It was much later that they revealed that the woman in question was, in fact, already married to some one else. I was later able to verify that fact independently as well, by looking at the photographs displayed on her social media profile.
I am yet to figure out what kind of person would be willing to do befool another person into thinking that she liked him in any way whatsoever and was willing to get into some kind of a relationship with him, and for what kind of a consideration. Was there money involved? Did she do it just for the money or was there any other kind of thought process involved?
What about the husband/partner? Was he aware of what was happening? Was he a willing participant even?
I suppose I am never going to figure that out, just like the reasons behind the words and actions of the rest of ‘them’.
