Letter to Dost- 3



I know you do not read my blog anymore. We both tried to make peace and be all nice and sweet to each other and we failed miserably. But, still what I fail to understand is no matter how much we fight and no matter how long we do not talk to each other, the one thing that I will always be definitely sure of is that I lost a good friend, a man who is loving, caring and a generous human being when we stopped talking.

You know I have met quite a few people when I joined this University. People I met while interning, people in my batch and some random people. It amazes me that I could never find somebody like you. Why is it dost?

This is my last year of college. And, somehow this last year is teaching me some very important lessons about human relationships. People are so stupid, they speak whatever they want to without keeping other people’s feelings in mind, some think they are very smart, some think they are above everyone and some, they are just hopeless whenever they open their mouth.

I can’t even pen down their names, as it would be playing against the rules of the game. You know you-do-not-tell-me-what-exactly-you-think-of- me game because I am supposed to behave, all calmed down and smile at their moronic faces. But, I am so glad that it is only a matter of six months and I can be back with my old friends. Friends who really care.

And now I realise that people like the ones in my University were always there when we were in school. But, somehow you always protected me. Somehow, I could never be made aware of this bacterial presence. And now when I have to deal with it single- handedly, it infuriates me to a level I can’t even imagine. I remember after I broke up with axe, when I thought that I was such a fool and so hopeless at understanding people, you told me that it is okay, first love is only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity 😉

I still have that Tommy Hilfiger watch to buy for you. I am so glad I knew you once. I am so grateful that you are a person I define friendship in my life with. I am so lucky, I have your standards to match with when analyzing a man. I want you to be there at my Convocation. I know it is not happening until November 2014, but just in case you know 🙂 And yes, you still are irreplaceable. Will always be.



After a month long break….!!


No wait, actually it is one month and 20 days. But, I could not find a more suitable title.

My last post said that I am in love with Delhi. I surely am. I hope this love survives the battle of time.

Anyways, I was gone but I kept on reading posts and liking them.

I now feel I was kind of acting like a zombie in the past one month, I did nothing. Nothing at all. I came back to college. It is raining here in Bhopal and the city has turned amazingly and soothingly beautiful. Those of you who have visited Bhopal during monsoons would know.

This is my final year. The year where you get placed, go out on trips with friends (the one where you click pictures, take vows to be friends forever, upload the pictures on facebook and forget all about it in a year or two) and try and not fight with people around you as it is your last year. You can afford to behave, because as rude as it sounds you will never have to meet those stupid faces ever again.

I am trying to get a job. But, the funny part is there are no companies/law firms/PSU’s who are ready to come to campus to recruit. I am all ready. Trust me. I even bought a pretty white formal shirt to wear on the day some firm decides to land on our campus. I know the reasons, I know all of them. Bad economy blah blah !! I am hopeful and positive.

I get this sudden feeling sometimes that what will I do after the college gets over. This place has given me so much. I just wish to return all that I owe to the institution. But, ironically, I am somewhere happy that it is going to get over. Atleast, I can be with people I like to be. People who can talk sense, people who use brains and people who have the maturity to think beyond what they want in life. It was love at first sight when I entered this University, I now realise it was never because of the people here that I would want to come back, it will always be the sense of pride, the power of knowledge and the values that this place taught me to uphold that I will always be in love with my college.

I read yesterday that some 10-12 people in Bihar tried to stop an express train and got killed in the process. I mean seriously?? :-/ And then when the train stopped, people attacked the driver. What on earth is wrong with Indian people? We haven’t fully evolved or we have just shut down the working side of the brain because the expenses involved are too much for this poverty stricken country to bear.

Momsy and Popsy are the best parents. I have recently observed that they have started including me in discussions (the serious ones !!) at home. Be it anything, apart from gappa’s opinion being taken they also listen to me 😀

I have also decided that five years from today, I will adopt a girl child. I am not sure if my plans work as they are supposed to, but this is one thing I want to do, no matter how old I am. If the kid doesn’t already has a name, I will name her Tamanna.

I read this on facebook, “People usually have a family trees, mine is a cactus full of pricks.” How true !! 😉

I will try and posts more regularly from now on. Happy Monsoons !! 🙂
