I never really understood what the thought “Birds of same feather flock together” , meant until I met you girls.
Let me introduce them to you. One is A Saint 😉 oh yeah, be it times of war or love this saint will always have the sanest and the best advice ! The other iS too sweet. She might even cry more than you if you are hurt. You might end up consoling her and letting her know that you are not in pain .. getting the drift…
Well me , I am well armored with a Saint and sweetness by my side, always!
It was an awkward “hi” at the first, then it was familiar smile and soon it was a routine . To find you both , in the class. Me coming in late ,always. We sitting together, yapping away oodles of crap! Insane giggling, laughing , teasing and fighting. All silly acts , but all that has left indelible memories. Memories that linger and bring on that silly smile or even a giggle 😀 perhaps.
Saint do you remember when sweets refused to go to the first year party? I don’t remember the reason, but the fight I do 😀
My chocolate demands, I think I might have even dragged you to the store and made you buy chocolates for me. Yeah ! Crazy times.
I feel the warmth even now. I hear your voice in my head, I feel the freshness.. Years have passed and we have grown ,we are busy with our lives.
But I miss you. I miss seeing you both everyday.
Wasn’t our trip just beautiful ? The trip that was , a dream perhaps…. The blue waters of the vast ocean, the fresh rain and the cool breeze. The warm beach and the cold starry night , the sound of splashing waves, the talks , discussions , ramblings… The hot tea , the creamy pasta’s and drinks by our side.. Indulgence.. Bliss..
( For you readers , yes we did an all girls trip. Full on “Zindagi na Milegi dobara Style” .. I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful it was. )
I feel blessed, blessed to know that you understand me. That I can open any teeny-tiny dark corner of my heart, and I know you would understand. I do not need to pretend, I can be myself…
I am going to leave you with a picture from our trip. It is a snapshot of the time that was ohh so serene and pretty and content!
It is a moment we lived , a happy one!
Pighlay neelam sa behta hua yeh samaan
Neeli neeli si khamoshiyaan
Na kahin hai zameen
Na kahin aasmaan
Sarsaraati huyi tehniyaan, pattiyaan
Keh rahi hain ki bas ek tum ho yahaan
Sirf main hoon meri saansein hain aur meri dhadkanein
Aur main sirf main
Apne honay pe mujhko yaqeen aa gaya
