This happened around six months ago ..October 26th 2011, last working day of my fifth year,first semester… We were asked to occupy the E-classroom in the department…as per the given instruction we went there and scattered ourselves (there were hardly 20memebers in the class)and as usual i sat in the first bench of the starting row..since we were left out with only four days for exams many of my friends didn’t turn up to class that day as they were busy with their semester preparations.. After a wait of 5mins our HOD mam turned up and she started her lecture.
She teaches us Data Mining and Data Warehousing which was one of the core subject for computer science students.
Most of my friends say that she sings in the class and her sweet voice makes them drowsy(honestly i concentrate more in her class because of her voice) and i feel she is one of “the best” profs of our department…
It was half past 12 in the afternoon i was distracted from the lecture when my mobile vibrated..with little inconvenience i switched off my mobile and concentrated again on the lecture…Finally our madam ended up at 1 o’clock… Few boys in the class banged our benches out of happiness(might be because she completed the entire syllabus or because its our last lecture)
Hearing those sounds some of our classmates woke up from there dreams….:P (as i mentioned its a dreaming class for many)..We smiled looking at each other and were back to our classroom…Its 1:15 in the afternoon and my stomach is growling…Me and my friends opened our lunch boxes and started eating with funny gossips in between… I was listening to one of my friend then suddenly i remembered that i received a message during the class..quickly i opened my bag and switched on my mobile …that a was a message from one of my closest buddy…:) out of anxiety i read it quickly…Those 614 characters made me to remain silent… After few minutes i drank some water and moved away from the crowd…This was the message i received…
“Around the corner i have a friend,in this great city that has no end..
Yes d days go by and weeks rush on,and before i know it, a year is gone.
And i never c my old friend face,4 life is terrible race..2mrw i say,i will
call you my friend,just to show that i am thinking of you..But that 2mrw comes
and goes and distance between us grows and grows…. Around the corner,yet miles
away,here’s a call “your friend died 2dy!!” n that’s what we deserve and get in the
end,around the corner,a vanished friend…
Remember to say what you have,to the people whom you love and care…I just wanna say,
“Even if i am bad always be my friend”But its your wish in the end….”..”
Its not a simple text of 614 characters..it really touched me and felt it has lot of core meaning…Many of us
get attached to different people in different phases of life and obviously we retain many memories..As time changes, Priorities keep changing,as priorities change, people with us also change…(This is 100% true and we can never argue on this)..We get crooked up with BUSY schedules and never get time to think of those sweet nothings…But one question sucking me… Are we really that busy that we could never think of our old friend(it may not be only friend,it can be cousin,aunty,uncle…etc)???? who thinks about us in spite of their BUSY schedule but never feel like disturbing us thinking that around the some corner of the world we were happy…:) We can sense the hard smile on their face when they remember us…Aren’t we fortunate enough to have such kind of people???? people who think about us..who prays for us… But are we really justifying???Though we compromise that “this is the way how life goes on”…But just imagine the glittering eyes of your old friend when he/she receives a call/message from you…. A simple HI from your side which costs you nothing but it means a loottt to your friend….because no riches on earth can buy three things…LOVE,CARE and AFFECTION….Around some corner in this beautiful world definitely there will be someone who thinks about you,who miss you…Break the silence and Enjoy life!!!Life is not racing..its living…Living for the people who loves you…Value people before you loose them….
