BF - BestFriend

I am a guy and I have got a best friend, a girl. Now Because of the typical Shahrukh dialogues and the mentality of the Indian society, everyone expects and wishes you two, to fall in love. 
“You are made for each other.” “You don’t realize now but soon you will fall in love.” “Why don’t you tell it publicly?” 
Our friends kept torturing us with such sentences every now and then. It even got better when my mom got angry on me for similar doubts. After a time, I even stopped explaining people. I just said we are not but never argued anymore.

This all stopped when she got COMITTED with another guy.

Now, those who were expecting us to fall in love, I hate u guys. I am still just her best friend and we will always remain like that. Our friendship is very strong and we are even more than, I don’t know what to compare with. It’s just like Jai and Veeru of sholay. Yes, our friendship is as strong as portrayed in that movie.

I know you are sad now, it doesn’t look good. The hero, luckily it’s me (yipeee) has not got the girl L . But the story is not about getting the girl. It’s about what happens when your best friend gets committed. Trust me, if your best friend is still single never ever accept the girl/guy they like. Find a strong flaw they can’t refuse but also keep praising him/her for other things to avoid suspicion.

You can’t wish them at 12o’clock at night on their birthday like every year, because this time they are already talking to someone from 11:30.

Your gifts just vanished because they have spent much more on a romantic date and are now asking you for credit.

They would keep chattering about their love and it will just keep you get jealous (if you are not committed).

The trips and vacations are still being planned but without you.

You now have to bring gifts keeping in mind their choice and their lover’s choice.

Their call comes always busy and they might call you back the same day, an hour later.

You could have made fun of anyone, now you got an exception.

They start hiding things from you.

You always doubt if that ‘special person’ is really better than you. (I am better)

Once they are in the chains, you can’t flirt with them. Another person steals the right for that. They might even know you and trust you but after some time they will surely be affected by the bond and closeness you share. They will surely envy and ask your friend to stop behaving like this. Your friend will mostly tell you but you will know even if they don’t.

Bestfriends, it hurts very badly to know that we lost our right over you.
Their lovers, keep doing what you do. You guys are POSSESIVE and we hate you for that, but it brings a shine in their eyes. It’s that thing that always keeps our anger away and we are even much happier for you two.

But, I still hate you.

UniverCell Sync - Experience the Technology

An experience is made out of the memories created at the place. A place can sometimes mesmerize you but if people are the ones you remember then you would surely visit it again.

Univercell at Indira Nagar is one such place where you would fall in love with the staff more than the vast range of electronics they have to offer. Visited it at one of the Sundays. The staff was very polite and greeted like a friend. The staff was young and I felt even more comfortable with them.

Being a blogger meet I found some of my fellow bloggers there. We had a small nice chat and then the VP of the store Saumya came to meet us. She was a very humble and influencing lady. She talked us about our lives and then to the store. It was better that she didn’t just behaved professionally and the interaction was more informal which made me feel good. The staff of the whole store let you feel like you were with friends and you can actually ask for suggestions trusting them about the vast range of confusing electronics items.

Talking about the products, the mobile on displays were on very good conditions with a large number on display. I tried my hands on some of the higher end phones and the staff helped me choose the best one. Although I would still take some time to buy one of those phones but it’s clear what I need in my phone.

The thing I really loved there was the LG pocket photo printer.
I just fell in love with it. The picture quality was superb and it took minutes to print it from my mobile phone. You just need to pair it with Bluetooth and its done.

I really loved my experience at the store and I am planning to buy my next phone from there only.

"I love you Richa."

"Raj, you are a nice guy but we can’t be together."

"Why, we work in the same company. We spend a lot of time together. You don’t have a boyfriend and you even like me. Where does the problem lie?"

"See, there is a large difference in our status. I don’t want to break your heart but I don’t want you to feel humiliated later. My whole family is very rich. I own a sedan and you come to the office in the bus."

"Just wait for a year and even I will get a car of my own. Even I have got big dreams and I will fulfill them."

"You really think that in the meager salary we get, you would be able to buy a car. Even if you get a displayable car in installments, it would just dig so many holes in your pocket that you would not be able to get any other comforts of life. My family members are very rich and you can never match their status with this job."

"Is status everything? Yes, I might be a little poor but I am a self-made man. The car would be from my own hard-worked income and not inherited from my family. I love you a lot and I will always keep you happy for sure."

"Don’t behave like kids Raj. We are not in college that love is the key source of being two people in a relationship. We have to take care of the future. Status is the key feature in the professional world. You are a very good guy but we just can’t be anything more than friends. My friends spend thousands for just partying one night. We go adventure sporting once a month and I don’t want you to be left out each and every time."


"No, Raj. You have been saving money from 5 months to buy a sports bike. I know its harsh but I don’t want you to keep any hope later. We belong to a society where money is the most important factor and if you or I were so intelligent to get a huge package then we would not have been in this company. We can’t be together and just accept it. I am sorry but its better that we meet again tomorrow when we are nothing but friends."

Raj smirked as she closed the door behind her. He moved out of the office and dialled a number.

"Hi dad, I understood now what you meant to say. I don't want to prove anything now."

A week later, Richa introduced Raj, her boyfriend to her friends at a pool party. They all were jealous of his luxury car.

I wish it was mine

I wish it was mine.

The girl I had been in love with,
The dreams I had been waking with,
Stars lighting my path till now,
I wish I could get this all somehow…

I also wish for the pains to be mine,
Happiness will only, then look divine,
I think, what if I could fly like a bird,
My wishes I wish were not so absurd…

You know, once I got hold of some coal,
Tried for diamonds, just made some holes,
Am I now, just crying like a baby?
I wish I could, just maybe…

I cry in pain and laugh with joy,
Am I not being played like a toy?
Proud, I don’t have anything to be,
I wish atleast my freedom was free…

The sun is burning, deserts ain’t fertile,
I wish the truth was, I have a smile,
Things I lost, if I could re-define,
I just wish, I wish it was mine…
