Is It ??

First year of Engineering..

I came from a very small town to a big city and big engineering college. Got to meet so many new people out there. New relations started prospering. Roommates, Floormates, Class friends, Hostel friends, Best friends, TT/Badminton friends, Mass bunk friends, Seniors ..

Me and my best friend, we were having best of times together.

Few of our seniors, we always look up to them as our inspiration as we used to see them doing masti all the time :) They were all so very talented. Full of enthusiasm. Full of life. They were our role models. I will say, they were the achievers. We started following their footmarks. We were all good at studies, we particiapted in each possible game/atheltics/music evenings etc., got the earliest jobs through campus interviews.

All got well settled in life. Stayed in touch for initial few years. Then somehow in between lost the touch..

After years, few days back i got the call from my college time best friend. it was good talking to her..we memorized all the good time. then she told me that she met one of our fav. seniors few days back..n I was so happy to hear that..I asked her how is he doing..N she replied


"Life Defeats Everyone"..

And then she hung up. N this line kept making circles in my mind..Is it true..?

I started raising this question to myself again n again. And yes, I didnt get a prompt reply.

But after long hrs of thinking sessions, finally my Strength and Courage spoke up n they told me.. "No Not yet.."

And I am happy about it..!!

I wish, "the hope"... may she lives long for everyone !!

Hi!
your blog is fabulous. today only, i got to know that u write these kinda touching articles/thoughts also(thoughts:- b.t.w. thoughts r always touching and mesmerising. silly me).

I must say that ur feelings abt ur old friends n ur father touched me. In fact, i felt i was reading some body's personal diary and I was feeling reluctant. But i read just because u had told.

Wish u happy blogging. add some photographs also. good luck! :)

Thanks to the technology that we at least know our where abouts!!! I personally feel that the old bondings remain same despite distace, career and family. Hat off to you for this fantabulous mesmerizing lineS :)...Ravi Chandran

"Life Defeats Everyone" - I rather would have told like " Life tries to defeat everyone" - it also give you a chance to fight back.
