One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood...... Lucius Annaeus Seneca

When I was 22, I had two best girl friends. They were just 11 years old. One day, I saw them walking not together but on either sides of the road, completely detached. I was sad  for I thought they might have broken up. But much to my surprise, their friendship was intact. And to my query, they gave me a strange reply. “ Every one in our school knows that we are thick friends. And there are many who are trying to break our friendship, just out of sheer jealousy. Now they would think we aren't friends anymore. Hence no more pranks to break our friendship.” The reply was too innocent that  I laughed and laughed . Years flew by. My job took me away and I lost touch with them. But now I am strongly reminded of them. Why?

 Because years after I was surprised to see that I was just doing the same thing they have done earlier. It has been a few months, since I developed a good camaraderie with a family. We got acquainted professionally which later grew into a personal relationship.  It would not be wrong to say that I started having a social life which was otherwise absent in my life. We became a family. But I am apprehensive to make our friendship too explicit for the fear of losing it since we share not only personal but professional rapport . I have two more friends who are so close with them and they too share my views. They say "Let it be kept private". But don't you think it is a bit too much...

I am even scared to upload our photos. Hence whenever we get together, I hardly even think of having photographs together. Then I realised that it could be a great miss as I was not accumulating anything which could serve as good memory to cherish, years after. Hence I thought of uploading some of our photographs. Thankfully, there aren't many who are our common friends who reads this blog.

It's them
