My ode to Friendship


Since I was really busy on Sunday and was unwell on Monday, I'm putting up this post today. Friendship day just passed by and I took the time to sit and think about all my friends who have contributed to my life in a small or a big way. Me being an extrovert never find it hard to make friends. As a result I end up with loads of them and I intend to maintain the bond. Friends are a very important factor in my current life and honestly they are the only ones who keep me sane :-). So here's a tribute to all my friends. Now lets talk about a few of my best friends.

1. Even though we are not friends now, you will always remain an important part of my life. We've been through every possible relationship. First strangers, then friends, then best friends and then lovers. You have maintained every possible relationship perfectly. Its been 4 and a half years since I've known you. Although we have no interactions now, it is really important for me to see you happy. You have been my heart and soul. My sole support. You have stood by me through think and thin and have always supported me. Not knowing you would mean not having seen the most beautiful person on earth. You helped me conquer all my fears, lent me a shoulder to cry on, loved me endlessly. I can never forget what all you have done for me. Its sheer bad luck and misfortune that we are now in a place where we cant see each other. I would love to clear the misunderstandings one day. If there is something I regret in life that would be losing you. You were a great boyfriend, but most importantly you were a genuine and honest friend. I miss you. If I had not met you, I wouldn't have liked you. If I had not liked you, I wouldn't have loved you. If I had not loved you, I wouldn't have missed you. But I did, I do and I will.

2. She has been the constant one on my best friend list. I have known her since 10 years now and we still share the same relationship. She has been by my side always. For good times and bad. She has stood by my side when I was right and corrected me when I wasn't. When I'm upset or when I'm happy, she is the one I call. Our shopping sprees are the best ways to pass time. We are entirely different. She is an introvert and stays calm most of the times, while I'm the talkative one who goes blabbering on and on and gets hyper soon. Patience has never been one of my virtues, but she compensates for that. Our friendship has been through many ups and downs but at the end of the day, we have always been there for each other. A true friend who puts my best interests first. Hope you have a great life ahead and yes we will remain best friends till the world ends.

3. Here comes the 6 faceted man, my lunch partner. My senior age wise but I have never felt so in the 10 months that I've known him. We share this amazing rapport which proves why we have stuff to talk about every single day. Of all my friends he's the one who is like me. May be its got to do with the Leo Leo thing. My local library for books and movies. A great person and a great friend. The best part is he is not a bit like how he looks. He may come across as naive and nerdy to some. But the truth I know. Can act "cranky" sometimes, but that only shows how much he cares for me. A very happy go lucky person and the perfect stress buster. My partner in sharing miseries of life. We can go on and on about it. Knows me pretty well by now and viceversa. He can get very critical sometimes, but he perfectly knows how to sandwich the positives with the negatives. A loyal follower of my blog, which makes him even more special to me. Its been really great knowing you. I'm sure we're gonna be talking about this at lunch tomorrow, so let me clarify things now itself. No matter how much we pull each others' leg, I mean every single word I've said here :-).

4. This guy is the most genuine person I have come across in my life. He goes out of his way to get things done for me. Can recognise what situation I am in just by listening to my voice or can guess how my day was by just looking at my face. A true friend who has always been there when I needed someone. Lives in a world of his own but makes sure I'm a part of it. It has been great knowing him.

And now to all the sweet pretty girls who form a major part of my life. Dumms, Mangu, Swe and Pree... I love you guys. Its been 7 years since we've known each other and yet every time we meet we still have the enthusiasm and fun and frolic as the first time we've met. Together we form a crazy bunch. We laugh at ourselves and at the other, but we know that no one means anything what we say. Its been great knowing you girls..

Ahem.. Now comes my beloved girls of Vodafone UK. The crazy insane lot. Eoe, Prink, Amazon, Bubble, Buffy, Bing and me. I'm not gonna reveal my nickname here :P. We are always there for each other. Be it technically, personally and in every possible way. The best team I could have ever asked for. Great friends who make office time worthwhile.

To all the friends in my life, Pj, Akshaya, and the Ramaiah Telecom batch of 2008, Harsh, Tungath, Sajith, Ayushi, Aarthy, Krithika, Ramya or the entire Chennai batch in general, A very happy friendship day. If I have missed out some names I'm sorry. But some people have been intentionally left out of here simply because they don't deserve to be here.

Happy Friendship Day all. You guys rock. Cheers...!!!

  3. here's something else

    The first time
    You made friends with someone
    And ran with them
    To the playground
    You felt happy
    And silly.

    The first time
    You met your best friend
    You slid down the slide
    Holding hands
    Like recess
    Would never end.

    The first time
    You fell down
    While running in the grass
    You looked up
    And saw your friends
    Holding their hands out to you.

    The first time
    You got an A
    On your report card
    You jumped and danced
    In a circle with your friends
    Screaming at the top of your lungs.

    The first time
    Someone made fun of you
    Your friends
    Ran to your side
    Defending you
    To make sure you wouldn’t feel hurt.

    The first time
    You lost someone dear to you
    Your friends came
    And wiped your tears
    And gave you
    A shoulder to cry on.

    The first time
    You fought
    With your best friend
    And cried about it
    They showed up
    To cry with you.

    The first time
    You broke your favorite toy
    All your friends
    Surprised you
    With something all covered in glue
    Which made you love them even more.

    The first time
    You hugged your friends
    And laughed with them
    And cried with them
    You made sure it wasn’t
    The last time.

    (of course,its plagiarized,but thats only between u and me;-)
