Why we need friends in our life

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. 🙂

It has been almost 2 months since I came to Singapore leaving my journey with Hibiscus in Bangalore. I had obviously few reasons why I joined HCL. Most important of those was to start a new life in a new place, as both me and my wife were quite unhappy with our monotonous life in Bangalore and we both badly wanted a change.

I guess the year started with few more good news. She joined me a month later and joined HCL too. In all these busy schedule a path was getting created which I was not very observant about and only realized when things got settled and I got time to think. All my short term goals became even shorter after my shift. For example, I was planning to publish my book by end of next year that I am writing at the moment. But now after I coming here, I completely stopped taking freelancing projects and started spending more time with Santoshi and for me. So now I am hopeful that I will be able to finish my book by end of this year and should be able to publish it by early next year. Hope things go as planned.

There are few more things apart from this book writing in pipeline too. Can’t reveal much at the moment. But as I re-commented on one of my friend’s comment on Facebook … “When one dream comes true, you don’t stop there … U dream more.”
