Friends...

Ok... now this is really bad... Past 5 mins I have this page open, trying to type something atleast...

Just remembering about the initial days when we joined the company... we were a big group of 15-16.... We used to have nice fun daily...Even for lunch, all of used to go together and join 3-4 tables in the foodcourt and keep pulling each otherr's leg. Having fun....

Now as time passed by, people have gone far away to places.. Few in India, few in US, few in UK... But distance shouldn't come between friends... But then along with that the feelings have also changed... Now we no longer have the same friendship...

Its just become the hi-bye, how r u I am fine kind of acknowledging stuff :)
But I am happy that even though we dont have the same friendship, atleast we are still in position that we recognize each other.. and acknowledge each other.. and when we actually sit n talk we go back to those good old days... and its nice to know that they also relish those moments...

Well started writing something, ended up with something else...
Anyways...

Friendship is a like a thread of pearls... Everybody is a pearl... But we just need to make sure the thread doesnt break... What if one of the pearls gets lost...

the more you think abt it , the more sad it becomes ...

best is to live life w/o getting so attached ... then , no1 can hurt u by leaving ...

when i joined here ,i too had great friends .. now , i think twice b/f forming close friendships

Well somehow this is pretty similar to what I experienced... When I joined, we had this gang of 5 people - we had tea together for like, 30-45 mins... that was the best time of the whole day... Even though we worked in the same office, we had a chat window open for almost each of them, almost the whole day. Now there are only 3 left in the company and even we don't meet often anymore...
I guess priorities change over time and people try to push the past priorities out... :(

Art,

It happens everywhere :)

Distance doesn't matter... friends are always connected by thousands invisible threads and sympathetic fibres !

pearls won't gets lost.. it'll always be there... so don't worry...

hmm.....its been two years but the feelings that i have for my friends is still the same and its the same for them too.....

Art said...

Shreedhar,
The thread can be evergrowing... but i dont want to lose any

Deepa,
Same here dear....

Srini,
Ya... even though we have got used to this... it hurts when u sit n think about it...

Krish,
Pearls wont be lost... but they dont have the same charm as before... Sometimes they go so far away that u need to hold the thread so tight not to lose them...

Archana,
U r so lucky... I've also got friends like that... but there are a few with whom we just lose contact...

Nothing like those long woven threads of friendship,They might fade,but wont ever loose the link,And what makes me feel glad is,"Distances wont take away the flavour and beauty of the relationship, and i thank god for it:)

Reminds you of the old song "Dost , dost na raha...

Parting is a sad fact of life but unlike yesteryears at least one can remain in contact with our near and dear ones through email and the like. You can still continue pulling each other's legs in live chats, a privilege not accorded to our ancestors.

Aalapana,

Hiren,
Ya thats true...

Keshi said...

if one pearl gets lost, the rest will get even more closer...if the lost pearl is found, make room for it again...

Keshi.

I'm in my final year, final sem and we friends are gonna be apart soon. It's the story here, there and everywhere!

Somewhere along the way,
Time changes everything,
We all disintegrate,
It's running out.

Staying in touch is all that one can do. But there still is a bond. :D
