“Best friends are the siblings God forgot to give us”

I can say I was busy...these days..but with so many things...:) !!! But for sure all in search of my friends...yes..its not that I dont have any...but somehow I was so keen to search my school University friends...and I was just trying to use the internet..the all possible modes of alumini websites...! And I was so surprised that actually I found one of my classmate who was in 7th grade with me :D !!!!

“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart”

One thing I noticed about myself was..that I was so engrossed in searching that...I actually lived all those moments and days of my childhood till my University days..:) I was remembering...each persons name started coming in my mind and...all these days I was in those sweet memories...I can say I was on a journey to childhood :D!!!

“Good friends are like stars.... You don't always see them, but you know they are always there”

When I discuss about my childhood...I have heard some people think am living in past...and they say oh...she has not come out of it...but my ask is tell me...dont you just love a good experience..

“You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.”

Whether its a restaurant experience..or a good customer service..we do remember...though not that lasting...and one always remembers the bad customer service experience and then we spread the word of the mouth :)...!

“The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.”

I love to cherrish good things and hence I love to talk about my childhood, my school was so awesome and am sure we all do have such memories...

“You have to know the past to understand the present.”

As there was this fun in getting tensed for your exams...there was this fear of getting wacked by your teacher for not doing homework..:)...complete your your friends...those practicals...where you did learn at the same time you had so much fun ....with your small mischiefs.. I just loved the way I was few teachers favourite student ;)...I was such a reserved and nice student ....can't believe now myself...I was like that once :D

“When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there”

Its just a treat to myself and to my friends ..with a toast with you all :)

But after very long time when i met them.. I was so happy to see.. but I could see a cold eyes in them... And just did not know what to do.. just talked and left.. and left.. memories wont change but people change!!.. freinds change!!.. But good and best freinds will alwasy be ther... luckily have some.. who are always there.. i am there for them.. a closed set and compact set :d!!

*“You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.” *
Thats an awesome line and says it all..Guess sometimes the memories of the past are so beautiful that its almost painful to let them go...however we also make the mistake sometimes of letting our past get into our present!....Sometimes its just important to let it that we can live our present--coz every present will tomorrow be the past!

Keshi said...

wonderful chirpy and encouraging post friend r indeed hard to find and Im glad u found one thru the net....

all of us love to cherish good memories...and unfortunately the bad ones stay too, leave us all bitter :(


Ekta said...

Am soo much like u!
I like to keep going back on past memories and sometimes it these which give u strength to handle ur present!
and true friends dont need to be with u physically all the time--after a certain point, just their existance and thought give u the strength--coz u know they are there for u!

I love the title of your post - good friends are siblings God forgot to give us. But then while writing this, I am thinking, are siblings good always? In calcutta, you will hear (in almost each and every household) that siblings are fighting, cursing, dragging each other to courts in the name of gaining the family property.

manish: Yes, I was told by someone and so I gave a try :D....Internet has reduced the distance...but then everyone (my friends), is not on the net ...I guess!!!
Thnx for liking it ..will do so !

nagu: Yes...dear keep trying all possible ways...its so exciting to see ur school friends...after growing up...:) as when we r kids we r so different and how the distance between college and then University changes one's personality is something hillarious to watch :) good luck with ur search

sujit: exactly u said it...everyone has a mission...its all on the individual as what it is. Abt school mates, yes I agree...its not necessary that when you find them ...they will or should show the same affection or friendship which there was once...thats what I said above to Nagu...people change and to see sometimes...painful but also eye-opener :) good luck to u dear

sophia: Thank you dear friend :)

anand: Welcome, Anand...I think here we are talking two different thing about past...! For me..childhood memories not only keep close to my parents with small small things but also with friends...and my what we used to do as kids and look how we think now..! But if its something say..someone had a bad experience...and they are still in that shock ..then I wont appreciate that to be included as to live in its two different perspective. I think when we think about past good things and feel happy then definitely we make the present we are happy in our heart :)..thats the way I look at it :)
thnx for pondering you thoughts...I appreciate come again!

keshi: Thnx dear! I agree there are bad ones...too but then its up to you decide upon which one to pick :)...among the fruit basket...I always check which one is good..and the rotten we throw it away..similarly...I would say think of the good and make present beautiful :D
hugggzz to u my dear

ekta: Dear am glad you said I hv been explaining above the same :) you made it simpler :) and good to find one more like me ;) kudos to u ...

kl: Dear...I loved the title too and thats why its there for a reason...! You said it true how many siblings are actually like friends...they are not and hence the title speaks for itself...:D got it dear ??? :D

estarz: Welcome to my blog estarz and thnx for such a sweet and short comment..I will look forward for more :) pls do come again

Keshi said...

aww thats such a lovely idea...

**too but then its up to you decide upon which one to pick

I know...I should be able to pick...but it's very hard for my memory to do that..

keshi: give a try am sure it wont be so hard…its just that we think its hard… and find difficult to come out of that surrounding which we created ourselves…
