I now pronounce you friend and friend.

A few days back while chit-chatting with my bestie, we ended up agreeing upon the fact that friendships in our society do not really hold much of importance. It is actually just considered as a mask. It’s like you go to school, so you have a school mask, then college mask, office mask, neighbor mask…etc. We often hear by our family members that ‘family will always stay, friends come and go’ Yes, I agree, friends do come and go, we don’t stay in touch with most of them after a certain period of time. But each friend for whatever little time they stayed in our life gave us invaluable moments or lessons, either ways they helped us grow in our life in some way or the other. Then there are few who have been with us since ever.
I give friendship very high importance in my life.
Families are blood ties; marriage has a legal stamp whereas friendship is the only relationship which is not bind by law. Is that the reason why we as a society don’t give it the due value? Friendship is the only relationship which doesn’t really demand anything. A broken friendship doesn’t give you alimony or a divorce or any property rights. Nor is a new friendship celebrated the way we celebrate other relationships.[a wedding, a baby being born, anniversaries]
And yet a friend trusts a friend, how very brave and beautiful is this. One is taught to love and respect one’s family since childhood and we grow-up doing the same. But nothing is taught in friendship, the relationship takes its own form, you choose out of zillions of people out there those few people whom you call as your friends. It’s a risk you take, and it doesn’t at all feel that there could be a chance of losing anything. Our friends are our connect to our soul, our soul syncs with theirs and forms a relationship.
I am not undermining the value of families, I simply want to give the due respect, love and importance to a relationship which forms unknowingly and whether it lasts or not, it fulfills our lives with unforgettable moments. Our friendships are our window to our soul. Hence, I am pronouncing my friends and me in a ceremony where we are blessed with more love and happiness and many more wonderful friends.
I am not even mentioning about the support system that our friends are for us and the love and understanding that they shower us with.I merely want to speak about the value of this relationship.

P.S - I dedicate this post to all the friends I have had in my life [the ones I am not in touch and the ones who are there today] and specially to Jessy [ beyond any reasons]

For real...

As I type these words, I think of life, not mine or yours,
In general, life as it is.
How amazingly, insanely confusing and miraculous is this life.
In this hoopla of the routines, an understated adventure [if I may say]
I found a feeling, a feeling I have been feeling each moment;
Each moment, since I shared a few lines with you.
Blissful being the status today, Tomorrow seems lovelier than today.
With the ‘this and that’s’ of a 24 hr long day, I need to take a break;
A break to let the overwhelming feeling settle itself, let a few teardrops trickle itself,
let the cheeks blush and let the heartbeats rush.
The dream in real, looks as real as a dream.
As I pinch myself and squeak in happiness, only to ensure its real and so are you.
And you always have your way of saying – We too are for real.
So, oh you mad-beautiful life, you will always be thanked for letting me be a part of you.
And now I take my break; a break to let the overwhelming feeling settle itself, let a few teardrops trickle itself,
let the cheeks blush and let the heartbeats rush.

A few lines...

So nothing happened, just a day passed by,
Then what is so different?
You and I passed by together in this day.

There is nothing I can think beyond you, and yet you bring out the endless path of abundance in life.

Excess sugar and no sugar, the extremes is the similarity, as long as caffeine is the flavor.

When your tantrums and my tantrums are at its unreasonable best, we make so much sense.


Yesterday, today, tomorrow all stringed together, we make a day, everyday.

I cherish you in the darkest of the nights and the brightest of the days,
The small drops of happiness rolling down my cheeks, making it blush even more.
The only thing that makes more sense than being in love with you is, falling in love with you all over again, every single day.
I wished for someone to get me the stars and the moon,
You, yes you, took me to the moon and lit me like a star.
