“FRIENDS”

October 17, 2008

Pehla nasha…pehla Quamar….Naye pyaar hai…naye intazaar….

Dash jumped over the corner of the table to shut his mobile to silent mode. He was in office, though it was after the office hours, he considered his ringtone a disturbance to his team sitting across the table.
Hours later, he was at home, lying in his bed staring at the ceiling and thinking nothing.
Same music again!! This time he looked at the caller’s number. No idea who is calling…. He picked up the call.

She: Heyaaaaa!!!!!! How r u? Howz life?? This is my new number…where are U?R u working? Blah blah….

Ahhh….it was his old friend’s, one to whom he thought was so much indebted. She was his best buddy at college. He found her company soothing when he was frustrated, enjoyable when he was happy, simply the best!!

He: Godd!!!! U never change!!! Take some time to breathe…. and give some time for me to answer all Ur stupid questions!!!
She: Ufffooooo……….sorry sweetheart…. bolo bolo
He: hmm…nothing much here…life is good…. just came back 4rm office.
She: Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
He: what???
She: U never change as well…hahaha
He: hmm ya …how r u? Howz life?
She: life is great as always!!! U say….
He: Hey, actually, have to go early to office tomorrow….tired now…shall I call u back later?
She: Certainly Dear!! Waiting for ur call….miss you…tata
And She hungs up!!

Days later, he is just checking his call log for noting down a number his boss wants and suddenly came across her number. “Uffffffff I dint call her back!! What have I become!!” He saved that number, hurried to work. Later that evening he called her back, sitting in balcony, with a cup of tea. They spoke for an hour or so, and most of the speaking done by her.

That night, he was happy. He just thought how long was it since he laughed heartily as he did that evening!
He never really thought he missed her all these days…. and today he realised what he has been missing. Silly fights, stupid logics, late night chats, carefree attitude, never ending arguments over totally stupid issues…he missed all those…. he missed his company…his friends…his world at college!!
It never crossed his mind …… He doesn’t feel sad though!! He adapted himself to his new world…. running, hurrying…getting things done…. new friends, new world!! But ya after this conversation with her……… ………He felt Dash is back!!
The next day, he was back at his office…. smiling…. happy…. as if he was renewed with energy…. When his colleagues asked him whatz the matter…he smiled away a mysterious smile and heard saying to himself…

“Thanks Angel!! You knock the door at the right time”
PS: Friends are those people, who remind you of yourself!!! Isn’t that so?? Thanks to all of my friends!!!!!
