Friendship..

As Friendship’s Day has just passed, this was the most appropriate topic to write something on. First of all, let me wish all my friends, all around the globe, a Very Happy Friendship’s Day.

Friendship is one of the most beautiful relationships in the world. It is said that you get your family by chance, but you make friends by choice. I agree with this statement, but only to an extent. Yes you make friends by choice, but here also chance plays an important role.

I have a lot of friends, categorised into different categories. On this special occassion, I want to thank all of them for entering my life and making it beautiful.

My school friends – There are a lot of fond memories associated with my school friends. We used to be a bunch of intelligently mad people. I belonged to a group of about 10 people till 8th standard. Me, Diksha, Namita, Neha, Pallavi, Sonal, Chinu, both the Swati’s and Kuljeet. It was the elite group of the class. We were class toppers. Every year, we would be amongst the top 11 rankers in the class. And we were NOT nerds. Infact, we used to do so much masti and mazaa. I remember we were in 7th when the trend of daily soaps started; we used to play serial-serial during our break. Oh my godd.. it used to be sooo hilarious.. Kyunki Sas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi was the show we generally enacted upon. Diksha and me used to play the lead, Mihir and Tulsi, and Neha became our little son Gautam because of her short-height. These memories bring a hugeee smile on my face whenever i remember those days. Swati and Neha got separated from us when we entered 9th, because they took up Sanskrit, and we were all studying Hindi. Though they used to come regularly to our room during lunch breaks and also played with us in the P.H.E periods, but that charm went missing which our friendship used to enjoy. In 9th only, Khushboo entered. We weren’t very keen on accepting her in our group because we were already so many, and plus she was completely new to us all, but as i said in the beginning, chance plays a very important role too. As luck would have it, Khushboo was one of us. We always used to think name for our group, and all that we could come up was “The A Group”, A for All Rounders. We were actually all-rounders, with each one of us possessing one or the other extra talent apart from academics. Namita, me n Pallavi were good at writing and speaking on the stage, Neha, Diksha during practical stuff, Swati’s in sports, Chinu used to write so fast, Sonal was very soft-spoken, but her thoughts were always great and Kuljeet and Khushboo were amazing in Dance. During 9th and 10th, we did a lot of fun. We were always talking and laughing in the class, which initially brought upon a bad name on us. But later on, when the teachers saw our results and participation in the class, they were very much impressed. They were my best years in school. When 11th came, our group broke because we got segregated into Science, Commerce and Humanities. But then also, we tried to maintain our friendship, but it wasnt the same, everyone had found new friends in their respective fields. Me, Namita, Diksha and Khushboo were left together. We always used to hang out together. We are still very much in touch, and that is what i feel bonds us together, though Khushboo is out of the scene for a while because she is *supposedly* busy in her college, but she too wished me yesterday, and that pacified me, felt really nice to see that she still remembers me. Me, Namita and Diksha talk to each other regularly. Though we havent met after our final board exams, that makes it more than 2 and a half years, but we are in constant touch, and all 3 of us know what the other 2 are doing and feeling. From 11 to 3, this has been the journey with my school friends so far, and i hope that we 3 can sustain it forever. I want to take one more name, and that is Sonal. We havent been in touch for many months and we dont usually talk regularly. But there are 2 days in the year, when both us, despite of all the work we have, make it a point to talk to each other, and those 2 days are our birthdays. We talk for hours on those days, telling each other the happenings of the whole year, and i just love her for this, because this way we keep our friendship intact. Love you guys *hugs* Thank you for always being there. I hope we will always remain as we are, wherever we go.

My College Friends – I was very apprehensive on the very first day of college. The whole environment was new and i didnt know if i’d make good friends or not. When i entered the classroom on the first day, i found a familiar face. There was a schoolmate sitting in there. I heaved a sigh of relief and went and sat with her. But as soon as the registration process got over and the teacher left the room, my mate was nowhere in sight; guess the seniors had taken her for ragging, meanwhile i was also being asked to sing a song. That is when a girl came up to me, (she had just entered the class, and was, therefore, late) and asked me, “Am i late?” I said yes and we asked each other’s names. She was Garima, my first ever friend in BVCOE. The whole day we were together, and we had become so frank that we even shared our lunch the very first day; and that is when another girl came up to us and asked, “Do you people know each other pehle se?” She was Moksha, who became my 2nd friend in college. The next day we were sitting in the computer lab, and i was asked to share the computer with another girl. She had long hair, and a little bit of accent. She was Aditi, my 3rd friend. In the class, we used to sit around 2 more people, Seema and Megha. They werent quite in our group during the beginning, because Megha was extremely shy and Seema, extremely extrovert, which didnt suit her image as she was dressed up as a behenji on the first day, which was to prevent her from ragging, as we came to know later. Thus we 6 people, Me, Moksha, Garima, Seema, Megha and Aditi, became a group and were always spotted together, even during our 1st year. My equation with Aditi is slightly different as compared to others’, but i think its for my good only. People form different opinions about her, even my views on her keep on changing, but the fact is, she is a friend, and i hope, will remain so. Garima is blessed with a very dangerous combination. She doesnt know many things, but will never accept this fact, and secondly, she has been pampered so much by her family that she expects such behaviour only from everyone else. Her these traits get her into huge troubles sometimes, where, we (read Moksha many-a-times and Me sometimes) also have to bear the brunt along with her. Sometimes i really feel irritated when things go out of hand, but when i talk to her on phone or in college, she always manages to calm me down and we talk like nothing happened. Well i guess this is how its meant to be. Moksha and my brains work in a similiar manner; and when we talk on phone, we tell each other even the smallest of details, dont know why, but we do, and most of the times, she talks about her omeone special or Garima. In both the cases, i usually keep laughing and smiling. Seema is a complete tomboy, amazing athlete, and narad muni, because she knows how to keep put of Garima- Moksha’s fights (Garima and Moksha are best of friends, and often fight with each other on different issues). She never talks much on phone, but always calls up on days like Hug Day, Friendship Day, Chocolate Day etc. ; and that’s mainly because her balance is over. She’s great fun to be with, and she too likes Husein. Coming to Megha, she used to be soo soo quiet initially. Thank God her best friend is Seema, who has made her open up. Now she’s quite frank with us, and yes she talks better than Seema on phone. Megha is very hard-working, but is a pessimist, though we have tried a lot to turn her into an optimist and have succeeded a bit too. This gang of mine is also the elite group of class, and most of us feel that many people are jealous of us, because we are just best in everything we do. On this special occassion, i want to thank the 5 of you for being my friends. Love ya all *hugs*

That was all regarding my school and college friends and friendships. But i am not done yet, because i have many more friends, that belong to this virtual world, and are very very close to me. I want to thank them all too, but not now, because its already too long. So i’ll dedicate a special post to them all.

Happy Belated Friendship’s day Everyone

Love
