Some people Some moments # 6

My last weekend (the first weekend of 2012) was so very very good.. thinking about it I am still smiling :)

On Saturday, after a bit of running around the city and getting some work done I had plans to catch up with couple of college friends. It was almost after a year we were meeting though we happen to be living in the same city .. so for dinner my friend 'D' and I caught up with 'N' and 'K'. It was a very special evening for all of us as friend 'K' had come to give his wedding invite :) :) He was getting married to another friend of ours 'R'. What more reason for us to rejoice ??? We spent close to three hours talking , eating, talking, talking .. it was of course more talking than eating we did :)

We spoke about everything under the sun from Why this kolaveri di .. to wedding shopping .. to college gossip .. to work life .. to cooking .. to bunking work .. it just took me few minutes to get into the care free mode.
I just realized that many months later, I actually felt a sense of happiness that only moments like these could create, it added more to the fun when friend 'K' said almost 50 to 60 of our college friends were coming to the wedding .. I immediately wanted to go book tickets to Kolkatta (the wedding destination). I was more thrilled as I will be visiting seeing a Bengali wedding for the first time :) :)

Dhruv, me, Nami and Kaustav

After an evening filled with moments that I will hold close to my heart and with friends "K" and "R"s wedding invitation in hand we got back home .. Did I say friend"K' is the best singer I have ever known .. so, we have asked him to sing to "R" in his wedding ;)  Here's a video of one of his jamming session 

If saturday took me back by a year letting me re-live my college days, on sunday I ahppened to meet my friend 'N', he is my kinder garden friend and the first friend I made :) :) and also is friend "D's" cousin. After high school, we hardly were in touch. It came as a surprise to him when he saw me at his place. Though it was a short meet, it was so good catching up with "N", his mom and grand mom ..

We looked different, we were no more kids or teens, we weren't in touch with each other regularly .. However, nothing had changed between us .. we had only grown fonder and valued our friendship a lot more and the minute we met it was life as usual the way it used to be when in college or school.

Now, I am looking forward to friend "K" and "R"'s wedding and my trip to Kolkatta :) :)

Dear Shalini
Three hours is just nothing for your group.
We know that If your group gets together you guys are capable of talking and talking and talking and eating and talking for three days continuously . Enjoy your time with friends And wish you all have a nice time at Kaustavs wedding

You too ?? Yen da ippadi .. There are more videos of Kaustav and bonny in YouTube :) I recently listened to one Mohit chauhan's song from 3 and it was so similar to Kaustav's singing .. So searched in you tube .. Was surprised to see so many of their videos ..

And about me blogging at 3 early in the morning .. I was awake the entire night .. Wanted to blog and browse in peace .. Sp chose to stay wake until I made this post :)

Old friends are like hidden treasure, so if anyone finds that hidden treasure after a long time they would be on the cloud nine. And the same happened to you which was like you found a treasure. College memories are so special memories of anybody's life and they would always bring smile on your face whenever you go nostalgic.
