F.R.I.E.N.D.S!!!! Nay friends
Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing, Ross Geller… m sure most of us love these characters… the reason being, the friendship they share is exquisite… n moreover all of us want to have friends like them.
We (me and three other friends of mine) have also been a dying heart of fan of this series and had wished to have such friends. But for four long years we didn’t realize what we mean to each other… every time we used to watch an episode, we commented ‘how lucky yaar, we wish even we had such friends!!!’
It was only when one of us fell terribly ill and was hospitalized; we realized what we mean to each other… I cannot forget those sleepless nights… those visits to hospital… those taxi rides… those visits to market for medicines n fruits… cooking for each other… at times even fighting with each other… trying to make each other laugh even when you are most depressed… tears for each other and most of all caring for each other.
And the most memorable part of the whole affair was when one of us said one day ‘today while watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S, I felt nothing… we are better than them’. This one statement left us all in goose flesh and tears. We spent all four years together, freaked out, had fun, had fights, but its only in the last year we realized that “being good friends is much more than just getting drunk together” and this is reason why we didn’t cry while parting, because we never said adieu… we are in a too strong relationship to part… we are special gems to each other and will always keep each other in a very safe vault called HEART… cheers!!!

"I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth,
I knew not where;
For so swiftly it flew,
the sight Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth,
I knew not where;
For, who has sight so keen and strong
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward,
in an oakI found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend."
-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Get up early… reach training centre at 9:00… start ur daily chores, which are check ur mails… do orkut and chat on msngr… our company provides us with inexhaustible net accses. Sit there till 6:00 p.m. eat, browse net, sleep n then go back to ur respective HOMES.
This is my new life… or this is just the prelude of the new play which started 15 days back. The main characters of this prelude are I, the monotonous trainers, my colleagues and most important the coffee wala who serves the most delicious coffee on earth. I was always affrighted of entering the corporate world and now I know that it’s actually scarrrrrrrrry… at least the training part of it is a real shit.
When our company people came for recruiting us, we were told about the huge and beautiful corporate edifices our company owns. Oh I saw them… they r actually huge… but they don’t have enough space to accommodate the trainees… so, we r ditched in a small training centre, where the ac is killing… but people say it has just begun, you will adjust in a while.
Accommodation in this city is a great problem… you have to pay 10 months advance for a flat. Imagine such a thud in ur pockets before you get ur first salary (which is far less than what we expected)… but then its just the starting… things will get better later…
After searching for long I finally shift in a PG… where the food is real, real shit. But our company has got a nice food court… so after finishing my training(daily chores) I go to the huge building which I know as my company to have dinner. And after that when I try to catch an auto to my PG I don’t get one… so I walk up to my PG… but its ok… its just the starting…
After being so vexed by the training I thought that weekends would be fun… had heard so much about this city… I step out of my PG a Saturday noon and enter a mall… I had never ever seen so much of crowd in any of the malls… Gosh I felt suffocated in a huge air conditioned mall. But then I thought it’s just the prelude… once I get into it everything is gonna b fine and I hope it gets fine… but one thing is for sure this new play is not so much of fun… school and college were far better than this or may be its just the beginning…
