Ravsie. I had never seen him in college before. But the first time I saw him he caught my attention.I mean I knew that I would recognise him again wherever I see him…don’t exactly know why I got this feeling especially when I am not the kind of person who could remember faces (yeah I cant remember faces unless I have spoken to them like 3 times at least!! :D). Somewhere down in my heart I knew we are going to be friends…. And in less than 3 months we got introduced through a common friend and he became a great friend of mine.
Vikas. A completely different story altogether. The first time my friend had introduced him to me, I forgot his name in just 10 mins, forgot what he looked in just an hour. Even though we were working together for an college event, I neither noticed him much nor we spoke to each other. But then gradually over the period of time once we started to speak and text, our friendship blossomed. He’s one weird friend I have got, the kind of a friend you may not be in touch always but even if you speak to each other after months you still have that sense of closeness.
My senior in college. I don’t even remember her name. We used to smile at each other whenever we crossed paths in college. But the funny part is , I remember her quite vividly.And I don’t know why. I mean even after so many years, when I have even forgotten people whom I was once close with its just strange that I should remember this girl whom I never spoke to.
I am sure such experiences must have happened to you also. Some total strangers turning into great friends. Some person whom you thought to be weird at first becomes your best friend. Memory of a person whom you never spoke to lingering in your mind forever. Some close friends drifting apart over the period of time. Some of them are successful in creating a niche for themselves in our heart in the very first meeting, some others get close to us over time, some become lifelong friends while some make just guest appearances. From some we get positive vibes and from some others negative…So what is this? What is this force which makes these people enter into our life?? What is this force that makes our timing synchronised so that we meet that particular person during that particular time?? If you had asked me few months ago I wouldn’t have had any idea how many new people I’ll get along with. Each with a different story, different background and different situation altogether… but when they all come together in your life they make a very beautiful fragrant potpourri… A potpourri that is made by destiny… Our life gets colourful because of all these people.. these are the people that are meant to come into our lives though the reason may not be clear… these are the people who get a smile onto our face whenever we think of them.. we are connected to these people in a mysterious mystical way 😉 What exactly is that connection, what exactly is that force that brings people into our lives no one knows.. But it is around us making people meet, making them drift apart, making them fall in love and out, making people not able to stand each other 😉 it plans our life minute by minute second by second…3 cheers to that force and 3 cheers to the Potpourri of Life!!
