Surat Magic

I have traveled to Surat many times, but it has always been a journey of 4 hours atleast. But yesterday, I took me only 1.5 hours. I had taken a Bandra bound double decker train with my brother. He was going to visit a friend and I wanted some refreshment after a tiring week at office

Again, as I stepped out of the station, I was reminded of another funny incident that happened 4 years back.

"Bro, where are you? I am standing near the entrance gate."
"Kuldip" "Come near the Airtel Billboard advt."
" I cant see the billboard you are talking about. There is only BSNL advertisement board in front of me"
"What are you talking about dude, Cant you see that big one right in front of you?"
No, I can only see the BSNL.

The argument continued with my cousin brother for couple of 5 minutes on the phone until both of us realized that there were 2 different billboard advertisement on each side of the road, with one facing the railway station and the one facing the road. 

It was completely hilarious.

By the way this link is only an experiment for me. Don't push yourself to clicking on it

Friends or No Friends... or Just a Temporary Stranger

Temporary stranger? Yes, could not find a more appropriate word at the moment I am writing this blog

What do you call a person you connect on a personal level to? A friend I guess. A stranger you suddenly meet upon one fine day, interact with on a daily basis, connect with and then think of them as a friend. 

All goes well.. for some time.. until one fine day or as days go by.. you get a hidden feeling that the friend you are connected to is ignoring you for no reason at all. You observe, you try to talk... you get ignored once again. You try to ask.. but get unsatisfactory answers... answers that have no meaning. And a doubt comes to your mind. Did some certain person say something against me to the friend? Was it just a routine time pass to make? 

And.. the friend is only a good friend.. nothing else
 so what is the solution?

As they say.. time heals.. but time may take too much time, which may or may not be good. But the only solution is to let it go.. let it heal on its own. If something good comes out of it, it's good.. otherwise.. then also it's good. You have tasted a new lesson -about life and practicality. 

Can not write longer and more on this.. loss of words.. and ideas.
