A Friend for Life!

There is this beautiful saying in Tamil, “உன் நண்பன் யார் என்று சொல். நீ யாரென்று சொல்கிறேன்.” Literal translation in English is, “Tell me who your friend is. I‘ll tell you who you are!” That I second. I was lucky enough to find a pearl in my life, while chatting anonymously on a chatting website.

[TheRock_ -> Queen of Hearts]: “Heya!”
[Queen of Hearts -> TheRock_]: “Hello!”
[TheRock_ -> Queen of Hearts]: How was your day?
[Queen of Hearts -> TheRock_]: Good. Where are you from?
[TheRock_ -> Queen of Hearts]: I am from India. Currently, I am living in London.What about you?
[Queen of Hearts -> TheRock_]: Wow! London. I am from India.

Her chat tone changed. In less than ten minutes, she became comfortable in chatting with me. And she added me on gTalk.

Sahana: Hellow
me: Thanks for the add.
Sahana: I am glad to find a good person. What’s the time now?
me: The time is quarter past one in the morning. I guess it is half past five in India.
Sahana: Yesh!

The chat continued until mid-day. I was glad to find someone with whom I could chat for hours. She was happy, as she found a good friend. 😛 Life suddenly started to blossom like a sunflower. We chatted almost all day. Sooner, we became thick friends. We trusted each other blindly and shared all secrets between us.

We were everywhere – gTalk, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and Skype. We chatted on gTalk during the daytime, or at times on Facebook, posted (spammed) on each other wall, Retweeted or mentioned the other, and when the fingers needed a break, we talked on Skype, and played guessing game on Whatsapp before going to sleep; a game that could be played only by Sid and Sahana. She sent random words to me to guess what made her type that. Or a synonym to her word, not exactly though.

Sid: This is just an imagination. I am feeling like you are here, sitting next to me. Okay?
Sahana: Weird imagination, okay.
Sid: You need to feel this or else this will be just texts.
Sahana: Ohw
Sid: Hmmm
Sahana: Hah!
Sid: Hmmm
Sid: Pink?
Sahana: Pink for?
Sid: That’s the game
Sid: For?
Sahana: I am asking you
Sahana: You said pink
Sid: I’ll say a word. You have to reply the first word that strikes on your mind after reading it.
Sahana: Ohw start
Sahana: Okay I will start.
Sahana: Butterflies
Sid: Hope
Sahana: Train
Sid: Journey
Sahana: You are slow

Sahana: Wait
