"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit but life without friendship is like a tree without root, it can't survive." With this quote, I love to share the fun moments that rooted the lifelong friendship between us.
I with Rahul and Adithi were compiling a photo book to gift for Rachana’s Marriage. In that process we recollected all those sweet moments that happened in our life. Usually, I pen down my thoughts and they criticize it, but this time it is our combined effort. As usual, I love to take narration part as it is the soul for a write up, Adithi will short list the photos as well as assist me in the write up and Rahul will review it.
Adithi: Hey idiots! We will start with this pic... It looks very cute and innocent.
Me: Are we innocent and cute?
Me: Hmmm.... Let me do the honours....
I love to introduce the Fabulous Four Idiots in the order you see them in the picture. The one who wears a blue T-Shirt with black trousers with orange patches is none other than our critic King, Rahul.
Adithi: In short, he is the shortest guy of our gang...
Rahul: Youuuuuuuu Idiot............... I will kill you.....
The one who stands next to Rahul is Rachana, the active girl of our gang and it is always fun, fun and fun whenever she chitchats. The idiotic girl with a cute hairstyle and longs legs is our special girl Adithi, my best friend...
Adithi: The sweetest guy of our gang is Ashik, our gang leader and he is always next to me... BOSS!
And that was the first picture we took after forming our gang, a lovely one that everyone has in his or her wallet. We were made to be friends forever and this was the seed of our friendship, which doesn’t look for money or any valuables but the precious hearts that cherish our friendship every second...
Rahul: Ok ok... Mr. Sentimental Idiot... Let us search some snaps...
Adithi: Hey idiots, how can we miss our apartment?
Me: Hey, let me tell about our mischievous acts that we did in our apartments.
This was the most unforgettable place in our lifetime as it helped bonding our friendship. The most favourite game as well as the most mischievous game is “Ring the Bell”, the one who rings the most number of door alarms was the winner and that would be me, myself.
Although the punishment was severe, we never stopped it, as we are the Fabulous Four Idiots.
This building had seen our smiles, cries, laugh, marks and last but not the least our Friendship that we would cherish for our lifetime.
Adithi: Our school picture right where you
found your destiny, your girl here.
The shortest guy of our gang found the cutest girl right here in the first floor, his destiny. Everyone had a moment in this school; I broke a tube light during my 12th Standard for which I have to beg literally to avoid the parents meeting, Rachana the outstanding girl and Adithi for the mischievous acts with me. One of the memorable one was the teachers’ day fun that we had in our class, she was wearing a purple colour saree, looked very cute but on that day, a cockroach played its hand and abused her, He... He... He... Adithi, Sorry for revealing the secret.
Adithi: Hey idiot, please don’t pen down it, please...
Rahul: Cool idiot... Take it easy...
Adithi: Hmmm... Please don’t...
There were many to list but few to put here, as we don’t disclose everything in this post but as different post in Few Miles, we completed our schooling in 2004 and came out with flying colours. I, Adithi pursued B.Tech IT course, Rahul B.E ECE in a well-repudiated college and Rachana joined Fashion Technology in Delhi as she dreamt right from her childhood.
Actually, we missed that idiot a lot in our college days, lecturer hours, stupid labs, worst PT session during our initial days, so we decided to meet on three days for sure. 1. Friendship Day, 2. Independence Day and 3. Republic Day. Friendship Day, the day that we cherish the most, this meant for our Fabulous Four Idiots. As you know, every Indian is proud of Independence and Republic day so we decide to meet even on those days too.
Our college days were fun filled after our second semester as we learnt how to enjoy in engineering colleges. Every day added a leaf to our fun tree and there were some unforgettable moment that happened during Industrial Visits. However, personally I cherish the five days of Inplant Training, the days that were considered as golden leaf in my diary. Four years went as seconds and in no time, we were declared as professionals. Between Rachana completed her course in three years, joined Indian Fashion Technology and she found her better half too.
Adithi: Hey dumbo, search for that lighting festival photos...
Adithi: I would like to tell about this special event, the special moment, which I cherish a lot. I, Rachana, Rahul and Ashik painted all the diyas with different shades of colours. We lighted all the diyas, decorated the house and enjoyed the Festival of Lights. As the saying goes, “The diwali illuminations with lighted diyas brings the supernatural brightness and joy with the hope of finding light in darkness, and spreading love amidst hatred.” We enjoyed each and every second passed and accumulated those memories for us to cherish. On that day night, Ashik cramped a lot due to the heavy work, Sweet Idiot, the sweetest guy of our gang.
Me: I found it sweety...
Me: I found it sweety...
Days passed as seconds and we were recruited by top software concerns of India. Everyone schedule became tight as we couldn’t even send a Good Morning or Good Day Greetings. However, whenever anyone of us feels down we log in to a conference call and cherish our sweet moments.
2010 is a different year as we met five times in seven months for various occasions, I tied the knot with Ritika, Adithi with Rakesh, and Rachana is the next in the queue, Rahul still fighting with his dream so it will take a year or so for him to tie a knot with Sruthi.
We compiled the photo book with 101 memorable photos and I penned down those sweet memories with all our discussions. As today is Friendship day, we all are meeting by 10 in the morning, definitely, it will be an awesome day for us and I wish the same for all the friends in the world. Although we live in different parts of India and pursuing different professions, we are united with by an f-word, “FRIENDS”
I dedicate this post to our “Fabulous Four Idiots” as “FRIENDS FOREVER!”.
