wishes for a friend

Dear Shailesh,

It's your day buddy. We have been friends for almost a decade now and I know I have never posted a card in your name but I haven't forgotten it you see.

From the days of our innocence to those of the brushes with our crushes, misses and fixes of my love life and yours and the blogging and slogging that's been happening, I am glad its charm has never waned with time or with familiarity. Inspite of the changes in our addresses and phone numbers, we have found time to always catch up where we left.

Thanks for being there to catch my fall, to help me realise that it's ok to whine for hours about the bad world and the bad guys, it's ok to think that I am the right girl around and people are just wrong. It's ok for me to hog and still eat from your share. It's ok to brey my favourite tunes, to listen to the stories of a book or a movie I missed or to share the tales of my man-hunt even when it is an STD or an ISD call.

I know nobody can take so many lies in one day. So, let me stop here. See, I dedicated a post to you. Stop complaining.

Wishing you lots of love and laughs and many happy returns of the day!

So touching..it was numbing. Truly silently eloquent.

Many happy returns to dear 'ol Shailesh:

You dont know me yet(after this comment,definitely "yes") but just thought if I wish you rightfully maybe I can also get my share of the cake and the KFC's crispies doubled up with a chilled pepsi...Maybe a triple sundae ...and maybe.....

Anyway, wish you happiness always.

Beautifully written letter. Everyone wishes to get such a letter from a friend. I am yet to receive one. Lucky guy, Shailesh. Probably, he is lucky as well.

It was a good reading :-)
