Getting started with blogging….and I just did not know what to start writing about. I chose my safest bet….Friends. We all have them….we all take them for granted but when you see them stand by you in the worst times of your life you know how blessed you are. It’s been a while since I have sat down with what we call as the ‘Core Friends’ group and chatted my heart out. We discuss everything….life….love life…..work life….no life….life after death…life at its worst….life at its best…life on the moon…life on the run. After every session, we just go back home and then start a talktathon over SMS about how one of us said something that has made everyone else laugh!
I am sure, all of us have such a group of people who we call friends. And also equally sure that most of us have always kept this group on some sort of back burner because we have something pressing to do….something more important than being who we really are.
We don’t talk unless there is something really life threatening. We don’t meet unless it can be done on a weekday within lunch hour or on a weekend in between naps. We don’t realise what they mean to us unless you lose them somewhere down life.
But the best part is that there is something that binds us all together……it’s that thing called friendship….it’s better than love……it’s better than most virtues…..it’s more addictive than the wildest of dopes and well, it is the only thing that grows older and richer with you!
This one’s for my friends and for all of you who haven’t spoken to a dear friend for a very long time…..call now…..who knows maybe your friend needs you and you don’t know!
