Friends make life worth a life!

“Hello… Sameer?”

“Akash! bro wassup. Where the hell are you?” Intriguingly Sameer asked. The two were speaking after long time.

“Nothing much. Same old, studies going on. I don’t know when these medical studies are going to get over! OK, dude can you come over to my place?" asked Akash.

Sameer checked his watch. It was 7:30 PM. “Now? Why dude, hope everything is fine with you. ” hopingly Sameer responded.

“Yeah all things fine. Was missing you. If you can come over, I would feel much better” Akash responded.

“Yeah I understand but I have to do some packing and then few….”

“You are coming or not? Why the hell you….”

“OK, give me 15 mins I will be there.” Sameer responded and kept the phone.
It generally happens that without listening to some grammar (slang words), Sameer doesn’t listen to the plans.

“Mom, I am going to Akash’s place. I will come in sometime.”
“OK. Come home early, don’t roam whole night out.” “Yeah! I will” Sameer left hurriedly.

Sameer kick started his Kinetic Nova and raced to Akash’s place. Sameer greeted aunty and went to Akash’s room, straight up. Was surprised to see Siddharth and Shalini there. The presence of Siddharth made matter suspicious. Sameer tried to start a conversation...

“Go to the terrace, Akash is waiting there!” Shalini beamed.
Sameer couldn’t understand a thing. He was confused. He didn’t say anything and went to terrace with his perplexed face. Climbing each step, he was thinking hard what could be the matter. He was full of questions by the time he reached the terrace.

“HEY!!! MANY MANY CONGRATULATIONS SAMEER. YOU DID A GREAT JOB”, suddenly group of friends came out from nowhere. Akash poped up, Siddharth and Shalini joined in no time. Handed Sameer a cool Levis T-Shirt, Deodrant and a Peter England T-Shirt.
Sameer took it still confused. He was surprised. More than surprise, he was not able to understand what exactly was going on. He checked with himself, his birthday. No that happened four months back. Ohk. He realized then. He became full of emotions realising he would miss his friends. Friends around him made him smile and the fact that he would miss them, made him cry. It was mixed emotions for him.

Sameer was leaving his hometown to pursue MBA from a reputed institute in India. The fact was yet to sink into him. He was supposed to travel in a week’s time.
Laughter all around. Every face smiling. Sameer’s heart was rejoicing. The heart was thanking each one of them million times, for being there and giving that fantastic farewell. Delicious food was served and people got busy. This is the only time, when these friends keep quiet and do the task religiously, eating. Except for eating, everything else can wait. Lots of clicks all the way happened. T-shirt got scribbled with all wishes and messages. It was one among the happiest and cherished moments of Sameer’s and everyone else’s life. Long live friendship.

fOoD fOr ThOuGhT: Friends make you realize how important you are. Their support can take you places and make journey of your life worthwhile. Good friends are like stars, you dont always see them, but you know they are always there! Treasure your true friends. Names of the characters are fictitious but the story is true. I have chosen these names as the characters resemble from those of Dil Chahata Hai, not completely, but yes to a great extent!

“Dil Chahta hai…hum na rahe kabhi yaaron ke bin…”
