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.
