Camaraderie

This is a total impromptu post.  Like they say “One fine day , while I was looking out the window , a thought struck my mind:What a wonderful day it is! What is today's date by the way? – “Shit , I forgot my friend’s birthday..AGAIN”…I am dead meat now”.
As usual the call went the same way as it goes every year..
I say “ Where are you busy these days?...ssup with your life lately?”
Reply “ Dude! Come straight to the point”
I respond with Many many happy returns of yesterday. Belated Happy birthday!
Forgiving is a quality that easily&naturally comes when you are friends with someone. If  you don’t believe me then try it on a stranger . You can never forgive a total stranger if he/she  really pisses you off some way or the other. The first immediate automatic reaction is “Wht the…” . The reaction maybe the same when it comes to a friend but it still is a passing one & specially a cool ,casual and an at ease one . You really don’t mean the words but with an unknown you actually do.
To this particular day , I strongly believed that jotting down how you feel is lame. Writing or acknowledging someone via a post or a status update is a bit cheesy but that is definitely not the right case. It is ok to express some things or let say most of the things. Things are never better left unsaid. Things left unsaid is just not correct and  that is actually lame. So yeah , it’s absolutely ok to acknowledge the one’s who make your day/week/month/year/life  free of anguish.

We socialize in this hustle bustle world full of cacophony because that is how we human beings are. That is how we roll :p.  We are definitely not our best left alone. Camaraderie solves all our issues. May that be social, personal, official or anything. You pal has got all the solution. They somehow are able to release you from your agonies.  We all have plenty of people around who are there for us whenever we need ’em & we are there for them as well.
Long story short : Friendship…companionship….camaraderie … keeps us all alive and going. You fight , you argue , sometimes you beat the living hell out of each other, sometimes you forget to show him/her the care he/she deserves but all is well & back to normal  when you just “Hug it out!”
Small chunks of camaraderie at some phase or the other is what composes our complete life. Some smaller ones eventually &unexpectedly turns out to be larger than life.

      True that : "Apna hi yaad reh , badii baat hain :p "
      Girls ya , they do are. But ya ,they too eventually forgive. With them it just takes a lil.extra time & effort.
      After some time all things do fall into place :)

  6. Surprisingly I remember all kinds of days. Even someone who is my friend's friend.. I will remember their birthday. Even then I know exactly what you are saying. There are just some moments where you are like "oh maan dost ho toh aise" Haha. :D

    I think that;s what makes it sooo much more worthwhile. Haina? :)
