There is some kind of strange feeling engulfing me as I write this . It’s for the people I spend my entire day with , the ones who make every moment a memory.They are with me through the blues to hug and comfort me and the good times to jump with ecstasy. It’s hard to imagine my life without them . They I believe are the true friends ,the friends I would want to be with forever. Here’s a little about them in the order of meeting them:
GS aka AK47 aka mots (though I never use that ) :
I first met you in 9th grade and before we had even talked I detested you because I assumed you were some snotty girl with oodles of attitude( gawd me and my assumptions). And then when you won the debate and I did not, I started disliking you even more. You had taken my place of being the best debater in the school. It was only in the mid session when we were put together for the school editorial team I found out you weren’t all that bad.I actually had fun working with you and you’d be surprised I looked up to you (you still are not aware of this) . Then after this little thing we got a little friendly but were not even close to friends , we were just class mates. You had your friends to chill out and I, well at that point of time I don’t think I had any friend( I can say this now when I have the most priceless friend in you).
In class 10th it was the same , but everything changed as the school changed in 11th. You were the only one I knew in the alien land. I hated the new school , the people out there were weird. I have no idea I how would have survived the two most crappy years of my life without you. Eventually I knew I could always rely on you. Whether it was physics derivations or consoling me when I had bad scores. You had a solution to every problem of mine. I still remember how you gave mine and one of our other friends proxy attendance and were caught while we were having fun celebrating our first bunk. Or the day when you started calling me zero centimeter ( I am not disclosing the reason here , it’s way to embarrassing) , that really was a moment that will always be etched in our minds. You helped me before every exam , made sure I studied systematically ( the way you did).
You were the happiest person when we landed up in the same college, I vaguely remember the excitement I heard in your voice when I told that you that.In college the bond grew stronger . You gave me more reasons to look upto you ( again I will keep the reasons to myself). It’s strange how you always end up laughing when we are arguing. And the argument for good becomes history.I find it very hilarious how you always joke about my orientation( for all the people reading I am straight) and I do not make any effort to prove you wrong. We have had the greatest time together and will continue to have .And you know what I miss being in the same class room .
Ck aka AYG: To be very honest I do not remember our first meeting ( you know that ) . I mean I remember it was on the first day of our college and we were exploring it together but I fail to recall seeing you there( it does not matter, we have come a long way from that now) . Apart from that day we surprisingly ( knowing you ) got along well almost immediately.It was on the third day of college you got your name AYG , the angry young gal , because you had a tiff with some senior. That day I learnt apart from being the AYG you also are someone who knows how to take a stand. I respect you for that.You have taken everything that came your way in your stride( this goes for GS as well). You are the prefect advisor in the areas where GS might fail. You guys are the same yet in a different manner( remember the being introvert talk we had in the bus and that really stumped me) .Both of you are plainly extremely crazy but guess that is the reason you are my friends.
Ck its real fun to play your girlfriend ( obviously I am not ) . That explains the reason why GS jokes about me not being straight.Although as your girlfriend I would love it if you utilized your phone more effectively . The shopping spree we had together was fun , though it did not seem so when we were actually shopping , but now when I look back it was an experience in itself.
And oh nearly forgot this one , the prank we played on GS , when I pretended I had lost my phone. Plotting it with you and V was the best thing during the semester.
You are the one who assures our daily dose of adventures at college ,Phew, I have lost the count of guys stalking you.I envy the fact that you were thrown out of the class before me , I always thought I would be the first one , but you managed the feat before me and my count is still zero.It is great fun when you are around. Thank you for being there.
V aka uncle V : I took a little longer (than I should have ) to know you completely.You are the friend who shares the similar interests as mine. The co-founder and vice-president of the backpacker club ( yeah I am still the founder and the president) We can endlessly talk about books , movies and music.You are the one who encourages me to blog and gives me the feedback.You listen to my blog babbling and the rest too.
With you I had fun at every single workshop and later the torture of cleaning the mess at workshop. The sardar sir really gave us tough times. Once we went to have our breakfast and walked in the workshop complete 20 minutes late like we were the princesses and then we had to beg for our attendance like paupers. But missing those 20 minutes was worth . You and I share the pain of being stared at by the teacher (having a continuous eye contact) in all the communication classes.
You are the master of pulling leg , you always have the most awesome(est) comebacks . This is the first and the last time I am accepting this fact. Together we and the backpackers make the perfect back-benchers. Let me tell you guys it’s nothing to be proud of. It’s been barely four months since I know you but I can say I know the in and out of you.
I am fortunate to have such nice friends , they make me look forward to each day at college and beyond.I want them to be there forever and ever . Yeah I do believe in the friends forever concept.Thanks G,C and V and also the others I did not mention .All of you are insanely crazy and I love you for that.
