R2 – An introduction. Chapter – 1 – Early life.

with 10 comments

Yesterday R2 sent an sms saying that he is going to ajmer, it was a sudden plan, i have no-idea with whom he is going, will know the story when is comes back. As u must know that i have been going for walk with R2 so i wont be walking now, i cant do it alone, the least i expected today was his call early morning he speaks into the phone in a sense of urgency..
R2: jaldi uth
me: kyu
R2: Mere ghar jaa, aur 500rs meri mummy ko de, ghar pe ek rupya nahi hai, doodh lene k bhi paise nai hai.
me: I dont have the scooty have given it to K, cousin has taken the bike to work. you call K and ask him to come and pick me.
R2: Why do u keep giving vehicles to others (he forgets, he has been the one who used my vehicles most).
———————– k comes on his way to office (this post is in real time, k actually came as i wrote the above part)
K: so raju was asking for money
me: yes
———————– i went and gave the money, on my way back i saw R1 and Krishna at krishna’s place. They were discussing about the liquor bills (salary day for R1, he is going to clear the bills today). He says to me “we have to stop buying from this chodu, my share of bill is 4500 this month” krishna laughs. i said we have to drink less. Mine is actually not much as i was out of station. Why here they ask, i said about R2’s call. R1 says what did i tell yesterday, when u told about R2’s sms, that the next sms will be asking for money. We all laugh.
——— R2 goes to office..
I sit at krishna’s place smoking, a guy comes mentioning about his wife’s operation, the topic catches fire, krishna talks about how these private hospitals charge more and most of them asks for un-necessary treatments (hurray!! i got a topic for a post)
Now coming to title topic. Yes R2 is a really messed up guy, btw we share the same birthday. But as i say every person has some good and bad in them, the good is that he is lavish, generous and the bad is that, others have to suffer because of this. I recall an incident few years back, it was an hot after noon a beggar was walking on the road without any chappals, R2 give his sandal to him, and tells me lets go and buy a sandal for me. He buys and tells me give your credit card. I gave. U see he does good but at the expense of others, without asking..
The story of R2 starts from school, R1 and R2 were in the same school. R2 was this popular guy, with girls all around him, good in sports, and other activities to say the hero of his class. As it happens in most cases the heroes of the class often end up zeros in real life. He was just ok at studies, dropped out of college in middle, we were together in college, we both dropped out together.
His family consisted of his mother, brother. His father was dead long before. His mother works in ONGC and earned good. He started drinking since he was in 10th class, and he drank very often. When he was in college he had the best girl friend, smart intelligent and extremely good looking. He himself was very good looking, he always had the best girls humming around him. He had the power to attract, a natural charm like the movie heroes, he was that good looking bad boy that every girl wanted to have.. He had sex with lot of girls, he was the king of his home too, he got what he wanted, he got the best bikes, he spent lavishly, he forcefully took money from his mother. He took all her salary, and he became an authority, he started managing the house. Obviously after taking care of the home expenses he had a lot of money left to live a lavish life. By the time everyone was out of college looking for job, R2 too started looking for job….
In next chapter i would talk about how he ended up in this big financial mess, it would be too long to write in a single post.

  1. R2 seems to be a fascinating guy. Helping needy souls at the expense of cash-rich folks makes for a sound sense in business of life.Robinhood and Naxals are made out of similar theories. ;)With so much luxury around, there's bound to be some mid-life confusion. I'll be eager to read the next chapter … so bring it on!

  3. Amazing! I got all confused with the beginning and end. At first you said R2 asked you to lend some money at his house and at the end R2 was a rich guy. Something really bad must have happened for such a tragic life to have befallen him. Though I don't like to amuse myself by listening to tragedy of other people's lives, but for the sake of knowing how things can go wrong I would definitely like to read the next part. Hoping it would be soon.- Vittal

  4. Dude, Love the new profile pic!R2, well, personally, I'd stay away from such people who use my money to feel good. Earning money is fucking tough and they should realize that. Can't help every beggar in the streets, better to help none of them.Just sayin..Keep rocking!N
