My unique way of celebrating Friendship Day


As we all know that friendship day is celebrated across the world on first Sunday of the August Month. And we also know the reason of celebrating Friendship Day. So I am not gonna go in deep to above points. But what I am interested in is the way of Celebration of Friendship Day.

In India on 2nd August 2009, what I saw was the craze of Friendship Belt. Start from young kids to old age in their sixties, they had their Friendship belt on their wrist. All I could see was high spirit feeling and joy on everyone’s face. The atmosphere at every college, small party hubs, Malls and almost at everyplace it was so much good and energetic. Let me just describe you one place. I went to one of the Mall in Mumbai and there the Ambience was Vibrant with different colors of Friendship Message Boards, Greetings, Gifts and Wrist Bands. Mall was also humming with Friendship songs. It was like, the Mall was also alive and it was in the mood of celebrating Friendship Day.. Ha Ha Ha LOL… But yes, it was really nice and pleasant. Many young and teen souls were celebrating their day with party, good foods and beverages. Hmmm, you know I liked that part a lot. Anyways, it was all about the people and their ways of celebration in Mumbai. I am sure that, this must be same in other continents of the world like in Europe, US etc..

Let me just tell you how did I celebrate my day. It was Sunday, and I had to take lectures in Management College. So I woke up early in the morning. I was in hurry to reach there on time. Guys I should not tell this to you all but you know, I didn’t even think about the Friendship Day at all. In fact that thought didn’t come in my mind. Because, I was really focused on my way to College. I reached on time, and then I realized of Friendship Day. After the lecture got over, all my students greeted me with Friendship wishes. And I replied in the same way. It was good feeling. It was as if apart from considering me as a Teacher, they also considered me as their Friend. And meanwhile, my cell phone was vibrating quite a lot time with Friendship massages. After the lecture got over, I could see around 20 text messages from my friends. I was delighted and smiling by reading those messages. I was on my way to home and during that time I tried replying everyone. Meanwhile I reached home and had my lunch. So as such the day was plain for me, no big surprises and no big bash.

Then I just thought of writing good qualities of my friends. And I started opening my diary and took pen to write about the good qualities which I had seen in them. I wrote for few of my selected friends. Actually the list was very big. So I thought of writing about selected few. During writing I really had to think a lot about them, I mean as a friend you know many things about them. You can talk about them. But when I started writing, I really had difficulty to bring their good qualities in my Diary. At first, I thought that “I m pissed up. I can’t write about them.” But as I moved ahead, I started taking deep dive in my friend’s life. I could see their life and their various moments. And slowly my mind started collecting some good qualities out of it. So initially the task which was looking tough for me, now it became so much simpler. And I could really get good things out from their life.

As I was going deep, my thoughts started becoming closer with them. It was as if, I was creating a bond with them from my side. This activity really helped me to understand them from bottom of my heart. Or in other words I can say “I could reveal their true good qualities.” Just to give you glimpse of few of my friends just read below. I think you all will like to interact with them.

Morning with a Smile :)

It was 8:45 morning today.
I was getting ready to leave the home for office. And I left my home with High Spirit and smiling face. Well today I had a thought in mind to do something extra ordinary. I don’t know why that feeling came in my mind. But I was really enjoying that feeling. It was just like a GOOD LUCK for me to my work.

Meanwhile I reached my Bus stop. As usual it was really crowded. I could see many people standing and waiting for Bus. And you know, I was one of them. Well after few minutes, all crowd just disappeared because they all caught their respective Buses. I was still waiting for my Bus to Company. But I was in altogether a different feeling. I was enjoying Rain, cool wind and the wonderful climate. I was in my different mood. It was as if, I was going for some Long Tour or Vacations to Europe. I was gleeful. And feeling was such a good that, I couldn’t imagine it. It was fabulous and exciting.

After around 10 Minutes, I got a private Cab for Office. I went in side car and I got to hear some good songs. Well I could say it was a GOOD sign again. I could listen to my Favorite tracks. I was enjoying full. I was literally happy from my Heart. I wasn’t even thinking that I am going to office.

Well after around 20 minutes, I reached my Office campus. (Let me just tell you one good thing. From my home, It takes only 10 to 15 minutes for me to reach office by Car.) I stay very close. But sometimes Traffic plays negative role and creates jam on the road.

So I reached office… and at the same time weather was pleasing me. I couldn’t imagine, the sky was Gray, clouds were shining. It was as if sun was hidden behind the clouds. And cold wind was touching me and inspiring me to move ahead in my life.
