I still remember how we never agreed on anything under the sun. We were a Fire and Ice combination. You would go East while I would go West. You would rather practice mathematical analogies while I would just cozy around with a book. You would pick white while I would blindly choose black. You would vow by tea while I would prefer coffee. You would make faces even imagining Chicken while I would go ooohing and aaaahing over Chicken wings. You would prefer just the two of us while I would always socialize heavily. You would help Mum whenever you could while I would just shirk work. And yet, when it came to being friends, somehow we always knew we would be there for each other all our lives no matter what!
Despite having decided to pursue our further studies together, as fate would have had it, you stuck by what we had decided and landed up in an MBA college in Pune while I decided to stay put in Chandigarh and go in for a Masters in English and Linguistics. Time went by so swiftly that I din't even get a chance to miss you much. I got on with my new life and you yours. You came to see me with aunty before you finally left for Pune and left me teary eyed. You brought along many pairs of beautiful earrings for me wrapped in a crumpled newspaper. Dreading your choice, I dint even feel like opening them but as surprised as one could be, I was amazed to see that were all purely My Types. Chic, blingy and colorful. It was then that I realized that perhaps, you understood me and my choices way better than anyone else. No matter how loud and audacious you had been in ridiculing my choices all the while, but somewhere deep down, you had always known exactly what I liked and what not. Would you believe, I still wear them often. They make me feel as if you are still around blabbering away to glory while taking digs at me. :)
We have been each other around a lot ever since you moved to Delhi, unfortunately just a month after I moved back to Chandigarh. I wish you were around in Delhi during my stint there. As ill luck would have it, you chose to stay in exactly the same locality as I were. I wish we could stay together reviving the good old dreams.
Khair! As I write this post on your birthday today, I feel blessed to have you around. Not to forget, this is the first time ever that I have wished you right on time in our 8 year long association. Blame it on my poor memory or twist of circumstances, I do have my regrets on this. But I truly have a feeling that its going to be a great year ahead for you.
You always believed that I would be the first to tie the knot but today as I see things coming, I have a strong sixth sense that even before we know it, you are going to be whisked away on a white horse by a Prince Charming. I can already see it coming and may be, it is this feeling that is making me go weak in the knees.
By the way, do you really have it in you to make a shy, soft-spoken and head-tilted-down bride? :)
I am sure you do and you are going to make your guy one lucky man on the face of this earth. My best wishes are with you, today and always.
Happy Birthday, K! Have a great life.
Time flies. Period.

I personally feel wretched if I don't get my share of solitude from the monotony of everyday life. Beyond a week, my mental faculties cannot continue to work if not given their share of solitude and retrospection.
Solitude is heavenly, provided it is received with the due share of respect that it deserves.
A few of the sounds of nature that I relish during my share of solitude include the following:
- Nothing beats the tick-tock sound of the clock. It is more soothing than perhaps, any other sound in the world at the dead of the night.
- The pitter-patter of the raindrops on my window sill.
- The sound of a gentle breeze gushing through my ears on a perfect moonlit night.
- The first-cry of an infant reverberating from a neighbor's house as he wakes up early morning after a sound sleep.
- The clicky sound that the ice cubes make while being dropped into a glass tumbler.
- The 'aaaah' sound that escapes our lips while we rejoice smelling the coffee brew, snuggled in our duvets in chilly winters.

Just when I thought that my life was on a perfect ride under the perfect reins, destiny played its trick yet again. And why not?! Life never fails to follow its forever-cherished dictum - An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth!
I am sure I must have been incredibly indifferent/rude to someone or many, that I have been robbed off my all patience and good times. Life hits back, HARD!
Well, there are sane souls out there who tout me as 'inhuman' and unworthy of being a human let alone a girl. Honestly, I do feel there must be some truth in their arguments, some credibility in their anguish and a tremendous amount of hatred and hurt in their value judgements. Why on earth otherwise would someone hate someone else with such intensity and vigour?!
I have no clue as to what went wrong or where and in what intensity. Though I do feel strongly about the fact that if I alone am the cause of all their worldly suffering and misery, then I should better keep myself (my-evil-self) away from them. After all they too deserve their fair share of undiluted happiness and contentment in life.
I know it's not going to be easy keeping away.. yet it will at least render me some amount of satisfaction thinking that they'll be happier 'off' me. I had nobody practically nobody in this world to share this piece of news with, so thought of coming back to Nostalgic Reminiscences and crying my heart out. Though now that I am here, I feel almost blank and rudderless. Huh! I think not even this blog loves me any more!
P.S. - I am not surprised. May be, I deserve all the hatred.

Strange are the ways of life. Every time we begin to feel that the going is right, life topsy turvys it all. The topic of contemplation that is infuriating my grey cells today is the sanctity of human relationships ;-)

While browsing through the message folders of my cellphone, I stumbled upon a few messages sent by a once-great-friend of mine. Life is queer and you never really know what the future has in store for you! The entire equation from strangers to friends, friends to buddies, buddies to the best of friends seems a little dubious to me, most of the times.

Life is on the verge of a new tide. A new wave of renewed hopes with fresh promises is about to hit the shore of life. I'm about to get into my second year of Post Graduation. This might in fact, be my last year as a full-fledged student. I might study ahead, I might not! Speculations are rife and many..
