Happy Birthday Devil 2014!!!

A decade has gone by since I met her first, but it sounds like ten months to me. It should be same for her. Never know when we became so close to each other. Maybe in the second semester when we spoke for hours, all credits to Hutch! Or in the fourth when we had no secrets between us or maybe during the inplant training days? Don’t know when, but we are happy for whatever we were and we are now.

I never called her by her name, and she did that ever. I never thought I will write again, and she did the trick and named this blog, “Few Miles” and I wrote again dedicating verses for her. So many never, ever and forever, I still remember the days I used to call her saying “I have written something new today!” and she read it the next moment. Many a times, I felt bad saying nobody reads my blog, but her words, “I’m sure someday you will have viewers from more than hundred countries! Touch wood!”, always boost my confidence. And you know what her words came true in 2012!

Not just that, we have so many memories to cherish. Maybe I can write a book. Actually, she has done that and gifted it on my 21st birthday. Maybe, she realised that we may not spend more time after that. We did spent time after that too, but not like before, not 24×7, since life demanded us to work and concentrate on life and eventually, I moved to London and then to Germany, and she moved to Seoul, we kinda became busy with life, still our hearts knew that we were, we are, and we will be blood friends forever. No matter how many times we speak in a month or how frequent we meet, it is heart-to-heart connection. And it so happened today when I phoned her on the mobile phone and wished her “Happy Birthday!” She was happy to hear my voice and so I. We spoke only for few minutes, but the magic in her voice and the happiness in our heart is still the same. And that’s the beauty of true friendship, otherwise I will not write this one at quarter past twelve waking up from the sleep.

Happy Birthday once again Devil! And I made this card for her!

Sweetie Pie,

They say, “Anger is a madness that lasts for few seconds, but leaves its footprint forever.” I second that.

I do not want to argue again, on whose mistake it was. In fact, I forget all that happened that day and wish to start new because I still love you with all my heart. I am waiting in the hostel reception.

PS: I do not believe in reincarnation, so do not make me wait until next life.
PPS: Sincere apologies


I left the letter in her textbook.


What happened then?” My grandson asked me with puzzled eyes.

Well, the last few seconds of my college life, was the best thing happened to me; otherwise, I would not say this story to you sitting next to your grandma.” I smiled and continued, “I am lucky because your grandma believed in me and accepted my apologies.

He smiled clapping. My darling smiled. And I said, smiling, “Apology, the best gift one could get or give!”

I waited…I waited…and I waited… The courier boy did not turn up, but after reading Cifar’s status, I came to know that the clue is Black paper cup and black tissue. Also, the site whattheblack.com was down too. I then seeked the help of who.is resulted negative, but with the help of clues, my sister said, it is a brush from colgate, which she saw while she was shopping. #AMWAITING

Do you know what's trending now? #WHATTHEBLACK #DAY3 I did not receive the surprise gift today, still loved the tissue papers!!!

And finally, the much awaited day in Indian History arrived. The story revealed. My sister was right and the website was redirecting to Colgate website. Colgate did the trick, the black innovation, the feast for the eyes is like no other. Presenting, Colgate Slim Soft Charcoal toothbrush. It’s black bristles are infused with charcoal that helps remove plaque bacteria. With bristle tips that are 17 x slimmer than the ordinary toothbrush, it can effortlessly reach right tight spaces between teeth and along the gum line that other toothbrushes can’t.
