STARS - the shining ones

I guess, on behalf of all , aaj Kal classes mein after a point , kuch khaas mann nahein lag raha....
No points for guessing kyun ...

So , randomly , I start scribbling images , pictures ...aiven hii....TP in my notebooks which otherwise are meant for a more noble cause.

In the class today , I started drawing "stars" . All sorts of. Various styles ....etc.

And then , I went down the memory lane.

My good old school days at MSM . As student , little ones ,when we were , the teachers used to give us these"stars".

I still recall those bright red stars which I often,used to get in my school copies and at times test papers : )


And the association still continues. That time I never thought as to why not give a sun or a moon or some thing else.

Pata nahein. May be stars are always special.

We have the Indian film industry stars whom we love to the core.

And we have "our stars" . The stars of the destiny . Which we follow . Which we consult.

One of my dear friends came visiting me in Delhi "swine flu" trip.

He wanted to ask something relating to the STARS. All of you must be knowing, but those who still don't know - I love astrology . That's it. No deep thinking.

So,we sat ,made some charts and all with some stars here and there and I tried my best to help him out..

Its so we relate things. Something which was so cute and innocent in school now has matured. But often in this fast moving life we forget such memories.

Then randomly they come and leave a smile on the face. Its feels nice.

After all its just these "yaadein" which stays with us. Baaki toh sab chala jata hai........

btw- got an IMC submission to be done tomorrow ....Lets GO....

Once an Ajnabee....NO MORE an Ajnabee

On my recent visit to Delhi .... thanks to the swine flu ......I myself got treated for the same :(

I met a complete stranger.

Now,for me she was. For her I wasn't.

Girls - they shop together,they talk and talk and share almost everything.

I met Rupali , after decades . And yet she was the same . NO CHANGE. :)

We talked , I hardly did , laughed like "pagal" and then ,from nowhere she said - Lets meet up - Ankita.

OK. Where did this came from ?

My expressions changed. Was wondering if I could file a case against Costa Coffee for making her drink everything but coffee. What happened to her.

And guess what . Before I could even get my act together ,she had called up Ankita and icing on the doughnut - she actually came.

I was in fix. Honestly. Blushing I was. And feeling - "Let her go and then you see what I'll do".

But that's in future. Need to handle the past.

On the look , she looked professional. By the dress code , by the way she introduced herself and she asked for my introduction ,it seemed I was in for a job interview with a HR - MKTG. manager.

I was impressed. But,that's about it. So it was over.

Last week she came to Pune.Amidst all the swine flu scare. Brave she is. Another value point.

She called me up and my usual reply was ....You know....:)

But,she never gave me that time. She just asked for my class schedule and gave ME a time to catch with her .

Gosh ! This girl is fast.

We met .And honestly, I felt happy. Why ? Pata nahein :/

They say you randomly meet people. Some choose to meet you and others you choose. And not always strangers become friends.

I could have refused , I could have not shared my number with her.

She could have just erased me from her memory. She could have not called me up.

But,all this is so much thinking.

Some people you are destined to meet. When you come in this world everyone is a stranger.Its with time you know who is who .

It was a good meeting. We are in touch . I sincerely hope we do .

So,the rock bottom is ,as someone "more gyaani" than me said -

""It's great when stangers become friends,
But even sadder when those friends become strangers,
We became friends and didn't even realize it,
I trusted you and you trusted me,
Now were like stangers to each other,
But no matter what you'll always be my friend,
Even if im not yoursIt's great when strangers become friends,
But even sadder when those friends become strangers""

btw-watch that movie - एक अजनबी
