finding someone in the crowd

DAY 2, ALCHERINGA,IITG CULTURAL FESTIVAL
I realised today that there are some arts which are mastered by practicals and not the theory.Yup,i am talking about the art of making a stranger agree to your proposal to come with you for a dance,or in plain words the art of flirting with unknown faces.It is an act which is looked with contempt by most of the people.But i tell you that it requires a lot of guts to go and speak out your inner feelings to an unfamiliar beauty(beauty is in the eyes of the observer).Most of the time the probability of a “no” hampers the act itself.The fear of failure has always been a deterrent for the guys of my type.
today the entire day,our gang was trying to do “apping” to all and sundry.But we were a bunch of inexperienced “baby flirts”.we were trying to keep each other in high spirits,always encouraging each other to take the initiative and ask the girl if she is interested in coming to the dance floor with him. There was a common trend among all of us.One of us would walk up to the girl and when it appears he is going to ask her ,he suddenly changes the track and walks down the path of “self-discipline and morals”.
though we were looking for someone with decent looks,we were still following the statement “Ek pal ki naadani,zindagi bhar ki pareshani” when looking for our interns.We were careful enough not to look at the campus girls (“one look is enough for a lifetime”) while we were looking for that someone in the crowd.
The funny ways of proposal coming out as the sun was setting down the horizon and there were a lot of gangs to compete for the girls.The scene was quite amusing.Each one looking at each other and saying as if hey ,i look better than you. Soon we realised that we were not alone but the entire batch ,standing in groups, was alone.all the people were waiting out on the streets looking out for someone in the crowd but not daring enough to ask her out.All guys standing on the streets ,in their best presentable looks were looking like a group of male ********.
After a few rounds of to and fro motion ,we decided to give up and proceed towards the Hasya Kavi Sammalen.after the show,i felt patriotic feelings surging inside rather than feeling amused.
So, in all the day was a day to remember.
I would try my luck tommorow again after taking a few lessons today.HOPE is what makes your life a place to live and to dream.
