Silent

Ready to go out
Tie my shoes and take my car keys
I shout “L, I am going out”
You smile and say “Drive Safely”
Now I make the same shout
No response, you are silent
What language is your silence?

Our car comes out of garage
Garage door closes via the remote
I shout “L, saathyaach saathyaach”*
You smile and say “I heard you”.
Now I make the same shout
No response, you are silent
What language is your silence?

I come home excited
Put my feet on the coffee table
I shout “L, you know what happened today”
You drop everything and say “Give me a 3 beer version”**
Now I make the same shout
No response, you are silent
What language is your silence?

PS:
*”Saathyaach” means “closed” in Tamil.
**”3 beer version” means “very detailed description”.

  2. Her Silence is the language only your heart can understand, and you know deep down her response to everything you say or ask. She is a part of you and always will be.

  3. I thought your Sathiyaachi was a Hindi word and 3-beer version is the short version!

    1. Thanks Rajesh. 3-beer version is the short version? How long does it take for you to finish 3 bottles of beer? In a very short time? HaHaHa Rajesh
