You still remember….

You don’t remember exactly but it was the night of November 2003 and you were all there for the belated birthday party of Kunal, the most flamboyant of all.

You remember the group was wondering where to go because it was kind of tradition to explore new places all the time so in the midst of all hoopla you suggested (as always) a place called Juhu Grand, a low profile quiet and not happening place but ideal for your kinda party. ( Sadly the place no longer exists.)

You remember how when you all settled there, Kunal explained his latest antics and how everyone s always enjoyed pulling sandy’s leg (no wonder his so tall) and how you scared people like Ranjeet and Sandy with your acting. You were surprise package that day. People still remember you when they have glass in their hand.

You remember you all went to the beach after the party just to buy some time (!!!) cos going home wasn’t a good idea. You remember six friends walking along and then Kunal came up with those lines which stayed with the group for very long.

You know those were some of the best moments of your life with some of the best people you have ever met. You remember events like those were regular feature in those days. Your partners in the crime in those days included likes of Ajay Sachdev, Faisal Syed, Kunal Patel, Mihir Shah, Ranjeet Saini and Sandeep Shah.

Your writing this cos you know those kind of events are rare today and in bid to keep up with the time, the times have changed but you also know that they are always remembered and cherished.

You just realized when your writing this, that only two of them are bachelors, rest all have given up.

25th November 2009


as they say is very strong and I am feeling it, still trying to sink in the feeling of HERE AND NOW world…

Going out was never like the same. It was different may be because of varied reasons like the purpose of going, accompanying people, expectations and probably the destination…

Went with a child like enthusiasm and had some wonderful time with some wonderful people. It proved to be a great learning experience. Formed some opinions, created memories, had some meaningful discussions, and gathered some food for thought and realizations were always there as usual…

Certain things were centre point of life for that 11 days and they are still making their presence felt in sub-conscious mind…

Here it goes

9W 117 …Royal National …2306…Pounds…Tesco…Russel Square…Oxford Street…BhelpuriHouse…Motijheel…MacD…Carlsberg…LSE…Oyster…Tube…Primark…Magic 105.4…99 Pens Store…Starbucks…

I know it all sounds like abstract but wel… Thats ME…

Partners In Crime

AKA Friends….

Remember…? Together we did so many things for the 1st time in life which is otherwise forbidden. Friends were partners in that crime and till date the partnership continues in some or the other way…

Ever wondered how many kinds and types of friends we make in entire life time…!! school friends, college friends, society friends, tuition and classes friends, social friends, post graduation college friends, travelling friends, online friends, room mates, office colleagues, friends through common friends……..

Friends…. Undoubtedly one of the most important influence on anybody’s life with hard to find an exception in this regard. They influence what you like, what you speak, what you do to certain extent….. To cut the long story short, they have the major say in determining the personality.

If we think of life as a journey, then friends are people who travel with us when our path meets. We travel together creating memories on our way to cherish them later on, till our path and priorities change. We say goodbye to some of them and welcome new ones on our journey… Try and relate this to friends that come in our life….

It’s very difficult to be in touch with all these friends nowadays days in our so called busy life. We don’t have time for friends with whom we had some wonderful time of our life….. Strange…. isn’t it…??

Off late, Orkut has made it easy for us to be in touch with our long lost friends. Writing testimonial for some of my close friends is on my TO DO list for quite some time now, but lets se when ill do that.

I know I have not kept up with the title in this post but who cares…? I couldn’t find better title then this and after all, it’s not necessary that title should correlate to content…….!!! Friends are indeed partners in crime; at least I prefer calling them this way.

As I finish writing this, some known faces intrudes my mind and fills me with nostalgia….

RedBox and Ferrari

It was the occassion of celebration of our success as a group which has stunned everybody rather than just surprising. It was also occassion of confeesions, mutual admiration, some brainstorming and some future plans of 3rd trimester.

The session was great especially after putting in so much of hardwork(read slogging), burning our nights sleep for countless days and leading a BPL (Below Poverty line) life as a PG student(this is also a topic for special discussion).

Theres this guy Karan who has been with us since the beginning of the trimester. I never knew so much about this chap. He is that typical happy go lucky, been there done that kind of attitude free genuine person. And I dint knew he owns Ferrari….!!

“If I had a voice like yours, Aishwarya Rai would have been mine.” Karan to me.
I dont know under what EXTERNAL influence he said like this but now you know its mutual admiration club….

May the madness and insanity last forever….

Now its time to get back to work and start preparing for mother of all exams, 18 papers in 21 days…. marathon as they say….
