Today I forgot to wish a friend on his birthday… Somehow it just slipped off my mind, and then when Facebook reminded me, it was already too late.
This was the same friend, for whom 2 years ago, I along with my gang, had planned a surprise party, gone in the rains and got a personalized gift and cake and celebrated with all the paraphernalia.
Sadly this is not the first time that this is happening to me. In the past 2 years I have failed to keep in touch, forgotten to even call on birthdays and missed soo many of the group meetings, that I am surprised as to how close I was to soo many of them just 2 years ago!
After Engineering some of us decided to study further, while others chose to work. Busy schedules, different cities and changing telephone operators kept us apart.
“Yeh dosti… hum nahi Chodenge…todenge dum magar…tera saath na chodenge…”.. I remember the day distinctly like it was just yesterday…. we all sitting together.. singing songs proclaiming our friendship until eternity….
Just one year ago, as a new joinee in my Company.. we were sent on a 21 day induction.. In these 21 days I formed great friends, some really good people… but again, all that has remained are some facebook acquaintances.
“So, like whats’ your problem?? You cant expect to keep in touch with 600 friends (my fb count ;))”, somebody asks me.
Well nothing. Its just that……….
I sweared it would never happen..
I proclaimed it would never happen..
I hoped it would never happen..
I wished it would never happen…..
And yet it did…
Well I guess… pal do pal ka saath hamara.. pal do pal ke yaarane hai … and I better get used to it….
