Duniya main do tarah ke log hote hai … (the world has 2 types of people) …
One, the fault-finders! Those who can never be pleased. Whether u get them something they really want or pay them a nice compliment, they are just never happy. Gifting them can be a mammoth of a task. I’d say, give them the time and attention they want, take them shopping and watch them burn a hole in your pocket.
The other, is the kind who genuinely value every piece of gift they get. Even if it’s just your time. They are my favourite people. It’s easy to gift them…I can conveniently get them a home-made treasure and top their list of favourite people forever.
And then there is MOI. You ask me what I want, I would probably say “oh !! nothing” but in my mind I am running a list of a zillion out-worldly and atrociously exotic things that I wish you’d get me. But I will settle with “ok i will tell you if I think of anything”. But in my head, I’m screaming ‘Now You Better Get Me Something!!!’
When my mom overhears me putting forth my demands to my cousins she calls me “Makti” (greedy). But well, I’m proudly and unabashedly greedy. In fact, I keep reminding people to get me gifts. You know, people tend to forget these days with such busy lives.
But the reality is that the gift doesn’t matter. It’s my excuse to connect with them, stay in their thoughts and retain the child-like relationship with them. It’s more so about creating memories, laughing with them, clicking the crazy selfies, troubling each other, sending crazy little things to each other – all to let them know how important they are.

Friendship… what is friendship? I think it is the most complicated and mysterious relation among all the relationships. You never know who comes into your life, when they do and and for how long will they stay in your life.
We make promises of being “best friends”, “forever friends”, “friends for life”… as much as we want to but are we able to keep those promises ? Our day wouldn’t end without talking to each other and now days go by when we havent messaged each other… Earlier we used to meet everyday, then once every week then once a month and now months, sometimes even an year passes by.. We promise to always be there for each other. We also say “I am just a call away” but then that call is not made anymore… It is funny how things change… We have moved from ” lets meet and plan” to ” lets plan to meet” and still rarely succeed. Today everybody is busy in their lives.
Sometimes you don’t meet people often but when you do you continue from where you left off last time… nothing seems to be changed.. even when you meet after a long time you know you have each others back.. like they say “old is gold”… trust gets stronger with time… we don’t talk much in college and after a couple of years we meet every weekend !! After years of not being in touch we meet a friend and we’re still friends. Good to get in touch with old pals.
Friendship is weird. Friendship is childish. Friendship is funny. Friendship is stubborn. Friendship is love. Friendship is family. Friendship is happiness. Friendship is hatred for the same person. Friendship is to help each other with their crushes. Friendship is being yourself. Friendship is complicated. Friendship is Never being alone. Friendship is a mystery. Friends may come and go but Friendship is Forever…
Dedicated to all my beautiful friends !! Biggg hugggg
