Sugarry Friend

This post goes out to my my kiddo friend (my childhood buddy). A friend as old as my bad thoughts. A friend since past 16 SUPERB years. Our friendship has been the strangest relationship in this world. We can anytime fail Rob Reine, the director of “When Harry Met Sally” by proving that yes! “A girl ‘nd a guy can be friends. In fact, best friends!” But this sensitive and totally argumentative topic shall be dealt some other time. For know, let’s talk about my friend :P Our friendship as I said was strange. We never exchanged gifts or cards on occasions. But I still remember the four wishes, in chronological order, every year were:

Him: “Happy Valentines! Bhagwan jaldi tujhe koi de de taaki mujhe chutkara mil jaaye
Me: “Haan please! I don’t want to be wished by you either. Wo bhi sabse pehle?No way!".

Me: “Happy B’day! Bhagwan teri umar bhi mujhe de de. Oops! Teri meri ki galti ho gayi. Adjust kar li yaar.
Him: “Tujhe kya karna itna jee k agar main hi na raha”Me: "Tu jab nahi hoga tab hi to jee paongi. Abhi to pakk rahi hun wo be tere bud-day waale din."

Him: “Badhai ho! Aaj aapne dharti pe ek aur saal nikal hi liya. Succesful lakdi! Waise Dharti Maa ko bhi badhai ho. Aakhir ab ek aur saal kam reh gaya na tera bojh uthane ka.
Me: “Hunh! Jab main nahi hongi na tab tujhe pata chalega main kitni achhi hun” (Yeah Yeah !! I was a big time senti actor since my childhood days)

Me: “It’s Friendship’s Day tomorrow!
Him: “Tujhe kya achaar daalna hai?
Me: “Abe teez nahi hai jo achaar daalun. Kal doston ko thank you bolte hai. I’ll wish you early morning before I go to school. Don’t you dare go before meeting me warna achha nahi hoga
Him: “Hunh! Isn’t it cool?
Me: “Yeah! The idea na?
Him: “No! Everyday, throughout the year, you just wish to come over to my house at night and kill me. And on this very day, you feel like thanking me.
Me: “Whatever!
Him: “Furrrrrrrrrr

So we grew up, fighting fighting and finally parting. We have always tried to remain in touch. But know we realize that then, we had ourselves cropped the differences. Firstly, the physical difference. Distance did come between us. A difference between an engineering student and a commerce student’s thought. Then the difference of life styles of an all times hostler to a non-hostler. Moreover, destiny had something more. Difference between two people, difference between two souls - a change in emotions, in proirties. Meeting him again, say months, made me realize that now a days it has started hurting when I stress my facial muscles and jaw bones to smile. But then I had fun in the sun. (Its damn hot here) I loved it when he noticed that ‘his’ smile girl has become a ‘cry baby’. He pampered me with those good words! (I Love being pampered :D) We even fought :D I realized it’s all my fault that I maintained a distance.
But then not all days are bad...
So now I think of that scene from "When Harry Met Sally" where Harry Burns tells Sally Albright,
"I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

I just wanna make sure you get that Buckingham Palace of yours. :)

We had joy we had fun...
...We had seasons in the sun!

There is no bar, gender or age, for friendship. However there always is strong possibility that two friends of opposite gender at right age may realise at some stage that they are made for each other.

Take care
