Me and Mr.VK
Before I could say about my special and one of my best friend let me write a drabble(started as 55er but couldn’t complete in 55) on our friendship.
It’s 28th July 2003, we met, didn’t spoken a word. But also I didn’t realized that a word didn’t exchanged on that day won’t matter. Next 4 years, we got introduced and got together, roamed around the college like ionic bonded atoms. Now again we are here, in the same place, but not together, not sharing stupid jokes or things happening, but still the bond is strong. No wonder we are best friends.
I don’t know how I remembered that date correctly, but it suddenly came into me when I thought about the day me and Mr.VK met (Don’t know whether he had seen me, I never asked it). If I still recollect it, it is a Monday. So that is the day, I went to my college for the first time to pay the fees as my parents considered that a full moon day is an auspicious one to join in the college. I always believed in destiny and also have a strong belief that whatever happens is for a reason. On that day, I have seen Mr.VK, but didn’t utter a word. Just paid the fees and returned back to home.
We have joined college by August 18, 2003 and for the first sem(common syllabus for all) we have been mixed together with all the department students and we have been together in what the class called ‘D’ section. We had some nice talks and just it. Never went overboard. With our roll numbers also too distant didn’t give a chance to speak much.
Then we moved to our respective department ECE… and sat on the same bench together. Is it not enough to get closer…??? As I have already said in my previous posts, I won’t listen to lectures, if I do so, then that’s the end for my opened eyes. Even he had the same problem. So our talking time has increased.. LOL. If we feel sleepy, then we will have shifts. The time when he sleeps I will awake to see whether ‘Respected Sirs/Madams’ seeing us and vice versa. And also we had this habit, if they say lunch from 12:30 to 1:10, we set ourselves by 1:15 or 1:20(we both were good eaters ). No wonder we will be the last to enter the class every time.
With both of our parents were strict, no way of bunking classes and we used to come to classes regularly so no wonder we were bored of listening classes.. another reason to sleep… LOL So for the first 2 years of our college we always be together except for the labs… obvious alphabetical problem. I will be in Ist batch and he will be in second). As good college students we never discuss any thing that is useful. No submissions of assignments… nothing. After the 2nd year, we get to know about many of our class friends so went in group for anything. Its also enjoyable. As the days went on, we didn’t sat together still never complained about that. We are still close friends as we are. If we(whole class) plan for playing cricket means then the ground nearer to his home wil be the location. Actually 2 time many of our class went there and played cricket from morning to evening… its full of fun… Do you all believe that one April month we were playing in the summer from morning to evening… but still that won’t return now.. ground is still there.. but we???
I am going off the topic now so back on track… Then somehow I managed to get a job in campus interview but he couldn’t. Then after the 5 months I have joined he was selected in my company and would you believe, he is working in the floor which is above mine But now and all we are not going to lunch together but still it never makes me feel that he is somewhere and there is some gap. But I am feeling still closer as we used to be in college. So I always believe in destiny and everything happens for a reason. This doesn’t mean I won’t try. I will try,whether it happens or not… I will call it as destiny ok enough of friendship stories.
Mr.VK and me during our college tour
Now getting into some classic stuffs of Mr.VK.
You can call Mr.VK for anything. He will never say ‘No’. Whatever friends ask he will say ‘Ok’. Consider this example:
Friends: Machi, the mountain nearer to your home is for no good da… we have to move it somewhere… shall we do it tomorrow??
Mr.VK: Sure da Machan… we have to
In the morning if we call and ask him means, his reply will be(he would have tell this to his father and always pretend to be a good boy)
On phone(he won’t call first),
Friends: Machi, where are you da?
Mr.VK: (In a sad voice) Machi, I have asked my dad da. He said that its better to go to college and listen to lessons than doing such things da. Tell me where you all else come to my home da… we will go to college together…
Friends: Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr……….. (cuts the phone)
He will go to college without any problems(we) then
Ask him to come to anywhere by a time…. he will surely come a 2 hours late and he won’t give a reason. Instead he will give a grin which is better avoided There are some more but I am involved in that… so better avoided
PS: Mr.OG has inspired me and I decided to relive in some of my college memories…. they are better remembered again and again.
