I was just looking through my pile of photographs and chanced upon some that triggered me to write this post. You get no points for guessing what it’s about. So without any further delay, let me proceed to pour out everything I thought of when I saw these. Because they are photographs. Because they are memories. And because they are friends.

Friends let you be crazy. Even in public places. And the best part? They get crazy with you. And nothing else matters. :)


The best conversations and moments happen over walks, my English Literature teacher once said. I couldn’t agree more. And what better than to walk with friends? Footwear is the last thing on one’s mind and it’s OK. How awesome is that? :)

Friends travel together. And wear socks when one pulls a pair out. And pile their legs snugly on each other’s first because someone suggested a photograph. And then because it was cold. In that order. And no one complains with that order sometimes.



Friends also stretch their feet out just so you’re not the only one.



Friends open that map with you and work things out even if all we’re surrounded by is water.



















Friends dance together.

Friends also break into a dance when cooking for you.

Friends also come all the way to the station if your train is passing by to give you chocolates that say this.

Friends take random bus drives with you right in the middle of coffee and conversations. And then they hang out of airport buses because you’ve always wanted to. In short, they do what I started my post with. :)

Friends also “risk their lives” just so that you can do what you have always dreamed of doing – driving a God awesome car in God awesome Goa! Not that the episode comes without an epilogue of just what a sacrifice they made which lasts for ever.

Friends take you to your first New Year’s party just so you can be the rock star you always knew each other to be.

Friends also take that place in your life and family which gives them reason and license to pray in your house. They pray with you. They spend festivals with you. They bring sweets too! :)

















Friends also dance in the rain with you. :)


















Friends sit together with you. :)

Friends push you and stand by you when you’re unsure. And hold your hand too. In this case, it’s a waterfall. :)

Friends make meals at restaurants fun! :D

Friends (blissfully) bunk class with you.

Friends let them click their drinks for you because you find those drinks pretty albeit, while wringing their hands together hoping you get done fast!

Friends let you hug them, embrace them :)

















Friends let you love them with the required amounts of sometimes necessary PDA :)


Friends love you :)

    This is such a beautiful, heartfelt post! Loved it totally.
    It also made me feel a lot sad. I have lost touch with all my friends, and do not have anyone to do all these things with. :( Except for the OH, of course!

      Awww… it’s never too late to catch up again. Things won’t be the same. However, friends are friends :)
