Is there any reason that can stop friends to meet?

One feels highly obligated when on a short notice people turn up just to meet you and that too after commuting long distance “on a laid back Saturday evening”. That is what exactly happened, on the eve of Saturday, 8th October 2016, when my friends cared enough to meet me, in spite of them having some very genuine reasons to say ‘No’ and skip this unplanned meeting. Even reasons like severe neck pain, kid’s exam and most importantly tiresome long distances to be travelled by using different modes of transport “on jam-packed streets/bogies of a metro city”, could not come between our get together. Hell, I myself can’t even imagine doing it (You know, I am selfish). But, somehow this overwhelming act of theirs left me thinking that is there any reason that can stop friends to meet? Shouldn’t all relations be like that?

What more one needs to feel special about than to have such friends whom even though we might not have interacted since a very long time (forget about meeting them), yet they care to turn up for a meeting that is scheduled at the very last moment on some “shocking” phone calls? This is what friendship teaches us i.e. not to grow distances in our heart, in spite of the physical distances and the time lags between us, our meets and our interactions. Most of the times, we all have enough reasons to say a No, but at times what matters is just a Yes. Isn’t this true for a healthy bond in every relation?

If we look the other way round, then we will realize that there are a number of reasons to keep aside our differences and build our relationship stronger, with every passing day. “Friendship stands for growing up, keeping all our reasons aside and letting each other know that we are always there”. Shouldn’t this be the main ingredient for every successful relation? When one really intends to build a strong bond in any relationship, then they will go to the extreme and no reason could ever stop them from trying their level best to keep that relationship intact. Keeping aside our reasons (if possible) and doing that extra bit in any relationship makes a lot of difference.

In the same way, irrespective of our reasons, when we want to meet someone, we will surely find a way out to do that. For me, on last Saturday, there were a number of reasons to meet good hearted people like extracting past memories, forcefully making the partners in crime remember that they were involved in some foolish yet funny acts (which s/he pretends not to remember anymore), pulling legs (both hairy and waxed), laughing crazily till the stomach hurts, and, last but not the least, gossiping about ‘girls’ (obviously how can we skip the most interesting topic). All in all, just to spend quality time.

As it is said that the best gift one can give in this era is their precious time. Well, frankly there was no reason to pen down the last line and it was forcefully inserted from my end, just to give a hint to all those who expects a gift, when a miser person like me meets them (although my time is not that precious, still…). Well, jokes apart, I am highly indebted to all my friends who make me feel special sometime or the other, in some way or the other. Thanks for spending your precious and quality time with me.

At last, I would like to say that let’s all of us aspire to seed friendship in each and every relationship of ours. This is my humble request to each one of you that don’t betray your friends ever and always keep the trust and faith of friendship alive in your hearts.

Be in touch.

God bless you all!!!

A writer at heart and creative at art. Someone who wants his words to leave an impact. Someone who is hungry for genuine feedback and not the number of likes. The thought behind my writing has always been to revolutionize the thought process which is overpowered with the set obsolete parameters, as well as, to bring into life, a new perspective towards everything around us. When I am penning down these lines, the beautiful composition by Mr. Dushyant Kumar Tyagi strikes my mind, "Sirf hungama khada karna mera maksad nahi, Meri koshish hai ki yeh soorat badalni chahiye; Merey seeney mein nahi to terey seeney mein sahi, Ho kahin bhi aag lekin aag jalni chahiye". The meaning of this verse (in my words) is that - My only motive is not of rabble-rousing, but my efforts are directed towards bringing about a change; I want the fire of awareness to lit somewhere, if not in my heart then maybe in yours, but the fire has to lit. Readers are a writer’s strength and one of the motivating factors that keep the writer always alive. All the honest readers are undoubtedly the unbiased mirror of a writer’s content. Hope the readers like my blogs and could correlate with them. It will be an honour if the readers are able to gain something worth from my write ups. At the same time, it will be my pleasure to know your honest views. Each and every single feedback is highly appreciated. So do not hesitate to comment with utmost truth in your words. Keep reading and keep learning. I wish you all a very healthy, happy and a prosperous life. Love to all. Be in touch. Take care and God Bless!
