I had many topics like Forgiveness, Forget, Foolish, Freedom, Friends and Fun for this topic on F. Few moments were popping in my mind but I was not so excited to write about them.All of a sudden this special moment which I totally forgot about has popped out and I had to document it before I could forget again.So here is my topic for the letter F: Friends.
The following incident happened when I was doing a course on weekends to enhance my professional skills.
He: Why? Aren’t we friends?
Me: We are, but you see, those friend are different, You sit, act like listening to the lecture, speak through chits, bunk classes oh that fun is different.
He: You did not find any at your class? It’s been four weeks already.
Me: No, looks like entire class is of introverts. Like me. it’s so boring.
He: Hey I am sending you a book through my friend. Can you pick it up at Central on your way to your class please?
Me: Okay, who is he? How can I recognize him?
He: Just go and give me a call. He knows you.
I asked the taxi guy to stop there and started looking around for his friend. I see HIM. It’s HIM, not his friend.
I was so surprised with his visit. He accompanied me till my class. I said I can bunk class. He asked me to attend the class and said he will wait outside and meet me during lunch break. I went and sat in the class. I was so anxious.
Just before the class started, he gave me another surprise by coming in to the class and sitting next to me. It was a big shock for me. Faculty started his lecture and I still was confused who allowed him in to the class room. I sent a note on a piece of paper. He replied. This went on for some time.
When the class was over, I wanted to tell him to leave the class, but before the faculty could leave, the college administrator came in and said, “Hi guys, today we have a guest speaker here. Mr Vamshi Krishna ( his intro went on for sometime). He is going to speak about… He has come all the way from Bangalore to be here with us”.
I am sure you can imagine my condition. He went on speaking and the class was super impressed with him but I couldn’t pay attention to any point as I was so nervous.
During lunch he said, let’s bunk the class. I have my flight at 7pm and I have to leave now. We bunked the class, went to a coffee shop before saying goodbye to him.
This didn’t end there. After wedding we joined in a PG programme and attended classes together. This time it was quite seriously listening to classes and writing down the notes, sharing lunch and some notes 🙂
What can you see here? Fun and Friends isn’t it? It’s fun being friends and friends are forever,
When you have a friend as a partner life is beautiful. If you see your partner just as a wife or husband, it’s time to make a new best friend in your life. Same applies to any relationship.
Treat your children like the way you treat your friends. The best compliment I would love to hear from my kids is would be ” My mother is my best friend”.
