Candid, not Candied

Friendship is...

...when a friend will let her cell ring and not pick it up because she knows her dialer tone is your current favorite song.

... when 2 minute phone call stretches upto 20 mins because neither has the time to "meet".

... looking at each other, knowing what the other is thinking and laughing endlessly.

... pin pointing feelings through Gtalk n Ym.

... saying it's ok to feel bad once in a while.

... over-boiled maggie, undercooked veggies and futile talks over "suicide"

... when 2 people are in a mess and the third one sorts it out. just like that. and forces you to see the "bigger picture"

... fibbing about the movie timing because you don't want to miss the trailers.

... forcing friends to follow, read and comment on your blog.

... writing notes for each other on a hotel tissue paper and laminating it.

... feeling good and bad at the same time when a friend has a good news.

... receiving mail from a friend saying you were in her dreams yesterday.

... getting your leg pulled and laughing over it for years.

... trusting each other without batting an eyelid.

... feeling guilty for having felt betrayed, which obviously wasn't the case.

... not sleeping at sleepovers, spiced up with warnings from mother dearest.

... reminding for the n th time that the blog needs to be updated.

... forwarding pathetic Pjs over SMS even if it costs a fortune.

... fighting endlessly wherever and whenever you meet and still expect them to gift you for your wedding.

... chatting through Gtalk even when she sits in a cubicle next to you.

... writing one liner morbid testimonials on Orkut.

... flouting rules and turning innocent when caught.

... bitching about a person that you have never met... and will never meet.

... trying to keep up the conversation with "what else?" and "aur??" and knowing exactly what they mean.

... crank calling and SMS -ing and telling the tale to anyone who'll listen.

... grimacing when friends sing songs of glory about their addiction... lecturing... pestering... complaining... but still hanging out with them.

... fraandsheip! what else?!

To all my friends, a lot we have shared together and a lot is yet to be shared. Thanks for bearing me with all my eccentricities, mood swings, laughter and fights. I treasure every moment of our friendship.


  1. friendship is also when you compete endlessly over scores and boys, but feel good even on losing!Where were you girl?Welcome back!!

  2. hehe... cool... bahut kuch purani yaadein tazaa ho gayi.... usme se 1-2 ka expenc haali me hi hua hai... if u knw wat i mean.... :P

  3. Bitching about people we have never met- definitely, what's life without that!?

    "... forcing friends to follow, read and comment on your blog." Totally didn't work. They send me emails *slaps forehead*

  4. it is when you finish the sentence your friend begins and constantly bitching about other people in this universe.
    Hope you are sufficiently recharged and will be back with your regular posts.

    Hmm.. And what else??
    Hugging each other and exchanging soppy romantic dialogues from movies.. ;)

  10. Way to go Kiddo...!!! :) U said it all...! "...glory bot their addiction..." Huh :P

  11. Friendship is ditching a friend because fone konks off while in poona and knowing she wont be mad :))

    Friendship is planning vacations and replanning them with old friends for over 3 yrs and giggling each time the plan fails.

    And THE most important as you said - bitching abt ppl we havent met. hehehe


  12. Superb.....!!!!!!

    YJ told me that Purn!ma has written on friendship….. I cannot wait for a single second to read it when I entered office & started PC…..Enjoyed every line and learnt many aspects of friendship…..waaoooo!!!!! I reminded one quote it reads ‘friendship is just like standing on cement, the longer u stay the harder it is to leave and u can never go without living ur foot prints’. Really friendship is something that u cannot have fun without it, friendship means u laugh without any reason, u walk along without any destination, u fight without any cause but still u enjoy it…

    The lines on friendship are just remarkable….. :)
