We love to smile with them, we need them when we are in a mood to laugh. They are a part of our moments of fun and they are beside us when we feel blue. They always stay with us no matter how far we go, in our memories, in our love and in our life. In short they are the reason we enjoy happiness when it comes and over come our sorrows faster.
We all are lucky to get few such wonderful friends in our life. I feel luckier to have fewer more. From the days of my graduation I have got bondings with few such people, starting from the singers of our music group who supported my dreams. The days of Pune were even more memorable when I teamed up with Ankit, Mayank, AJ, Abhishek and then Shardul and Akshay became a part of our moments of joy which I also call the magic moments. We used to hang out late nights for tea in M.G. Road, just an excuse to spot hot girls. We were tireless to drive miles in midnight through the ghats of Lonavala, not to forgot we met an accident one such night, Maku and Me were badly injured. And during one christmas week we brought our official projector to home and made our home as mini theatre. The only difference was in stead of Coke we had Vodka and in stead of Popcorn we had deep fried chicken cooked by Abhishek.
Life became even interesting when I moved to Bangalore, the friends at Hibiscus were amazing. Our lunch group grew from 2 people to 20 people over a period of few months. And later it seemed in the whole day we all were waiting eagerly for the lunch time to try out foods in different restaurants and pull each other’s leg … especially the unmarried ones. Thank God I was escaped. 😛 My bonding with our CEO, Ramesh was amazing. He was no less than a great friend of mine with whom I used to share everything including my personal problems. Then I moved to Singapore where I was welcomed by few more friends, mostly at work. The amazing environment of the Lab is keeping our spirit high all the time, when we are tired we relax playing table soccer and making too much noise. I am sure HCLite who are not part of this lab must be wondering what’s going inside.
But at certain point of time we all would realize, every time we move to a new place and make new friends, we leave behind our old friends and our contact with them gradually decreases. But it’snot about being in touch with them everyday through some phone call or SMS, it’s about being in touch with them in memories. And when you meet them after years, you enrich those memories and recreate the saga. You forget all your sorrows again for few moments and rediscover your smile. So to conclude what I started, “Why we need friends in our life?”. We need friends to always leave our life in a smiling note. 🙂
