I have more than one of these.
Ruhi is always physically around so I don’t have to make as much effort to say things. She can see me. She knows when I need a dose of my own philosophies. She has taught me what being thankful for what you have is about. God knows what I’ll do when she moves away!
Mithu makes me laugh. When I’m low, she’ll have cheap jokes and when I’m drunk, she has more of those. With her I am permanently 10 years old. Her boyfriend calls me her muah muah girlfriend because both of us always have truck-loads of kisses for each other. This baby is really precious.
Tarun is not just academically smart. His analytical mind analyses my mind quite well. He listens. He remains calm when I’m going mad. He encourages when I’m in self-doubt. He mostly laughs at me than with me but with him, I enjoy even that. I pray that he gets to go away ‘coz he deserves every bit of it but damn, I’ll be minus numerous sarcasms. That sounds too dull to be true.
Neha = Strength. Strength of character, strength to be herself, strength to face challenges, strength to strengthen her faith by the day! This love-abundant girl has touched my life more deeply than maybe even I’m aware of.
Parul, I know, will never fail me. I know judging people well is not one of my virtues but I know about her. I know her. She’s modern and trendy on the outside, and a soft & simple girl inside! Full of energy and always ready with advice on the most random issues in the world, she’s also my gossip partner.
And then there are those who’re either not as close as them or those with whom I’m not as close anymore but they have made a difference in my life. Yoda imparts wisdom and patience while Chhotu always shows me that nothing’s worth fretting much about.
Karan was a good friend and he still tells his friends that I was his best friend in school. This guy has changed an unbelievable amount in the last 2 years. Was sweet but dumb then; is sweet and sensible now. He wonders how “nice girls” like me end up with wrong men. 🙂
Rohit and Sayani Di stood by me when it mattered. Both are powerhouses of energy and I loved every day of being with them.
Rucha, Sri, Varun and Poonam are busy with their lives today and I hardly see them but they’ve all been great friends! I’ve killed a hell lot of time with each one of them. Hope they’re all happy…
I know I’ve done similar posts earlier as well. But how do I care about that?! I am counting my blessings. I’d sworn I’d not name any close people on my blog but what the heck! My bond with them is strong enough to not get affected by dumb superstitions.

Well, what do you know…I’m the first one here! :)LOVED the first para! Beautiful is the word.And as for all the friends you’ve mentioned, I just hope you never ever have to talk about your relationships with them in the past tense. Good friends are just too precious to lose over petty issues.Oh, and yeah, Neha=Strength. No doubt about that. 🙂
Thank you! :)It’s always nice to get such a mention. You take care.
May you always remain rich!
Just what Dada said. (=
this sounds cliched…..but ur damn lucky.
stay happy 🙂
“They are important”. Yes,it’s just like you’ve said. Friends are so important.My friends at school do not share many things with me.I don’t like the topics of discussion(which are mostly about boys of our school ). a I had become a bit lonely during a ceratin period last year. But, blogging changed everything. Now, I have lots of friends and I don’t care when I see some of those girls putting their heads together and discussing something.There is only one girl with whom I still share lots. That is Sritama.
Jayant:-)Thanks for all the nice words.And yes, no doubt at all.WoodsmokeIt’s my pleasure. 🙂Subhadip and RohitThanks guys. 🙂ShreyaI know. :)But what sounds cliched? The post or your comment? 😀DKYou too! 🙂SinjiniI can imagine. At times it gets hard to find your kind of people. But I’m glad you think blogging helps. And I’m sure Sritama is a lucky girl. 🙂
Saw ur blog… and the thing that struck me was – well.. isn’t that in your name- Rich(a).. 🙂 (BTW can I call you Rich, I call my friend by the same name).. and come to think of it.. I think I call her that coz, it’s me who is rich – rich to have her as my friend.. :)I am sure your friends feel the same way for you.. Keep Smiling 🙂 dear one
Wind of ChangeHey! You can call me Rich…not a problem. A lot of my friends call me that. :)Thanks for the nice words. :)Btw, is it you?
