Counting my blessings :)

You know when  something goes wrong in your life , you actually get time to think while you mourn . You start appreciating the little things and those people that were always there but you overlooked them while everything was happy and normal. Those people that are there like a background music to your life , always playing when you decide to stop and turn around , to share your dreams and experiences with. I have quite a handful of them . My special people , my pillars of strength and my confidants :D I have never really mentioned anyone on this blog elaborately but I am nothing without these people . Thank you all :')
( This is a very private post, if you don't give a damn . Don't read . Simple )

" The greatest happiness of life 
is the conviction that we are loved
 Loved for ourselves or 
rather loved inspite of ourselves "
                                                    - Victor Hugo

  Now how do I start about her , my pillar of strength since 18 years . Yes 18 years . I know her for so long that I don't remember not knowing her. I have shared stories of my first crush , first heartbreak , first feeling of loss , always the first to know about my chotu motu happiness and first to be there to catch the tears. I have never been so comfortable in crying with someone . Laughed for no reason and cried like babies on the same steps outside our homes. I have shared the most amazing years of my life with this retarded person here . Her family is my family and my family is hers . She is family .
    The drama we do is very special to me my jiggerypoo and I can't imagine my life without you . In my words " The day karishma stops speaking to me , I should just commit suicide cause I've probably lost everyone " :P She is my work buddy and my sunshine , the person who rolls her eyes and nods her head at my insane ideas and still says " Chal karte hain DUDE " The person for whom I would take a train from Mahim to Churchgate at 6.30 after I'm exhausted from work just to have Churchgate station ki coffee and gossip on bench number 1 or 4 of the platform .The person who'll buy me sunflowers just to make me smile randomly and who'll go out of her way to drop me home just so that we can spend more time together and also cause I force her :P .The person who stands with a stick when I'm going wrong and even hits me with it . No kidding. If the concept of soul mates exists we are probably the perfect example. Yeah we are better than most couples , if we were not straight we'd probably be adopting kids as a gay couple right now. Moving on , she doesn't judge and she doesn't question , she only understands. Tum nai hote toh kya hota baby :P I love you for being the reason of my happiness for too long :*

Ketki Ketki Ketki :D My Rasmalai , my kaju ki barfi , my rasgula , my chocolate chip cookie shake :*
  She is my everything including my mom. Very literally. She is my mom. 
I have known her for 2 years and I don't remember life without her. Period. We have crazy fights , ego hassles even but I can't live without her. Her hugs make my day and she is the only person who can make me smile in front of the camera ( yeah I'm awkward like that ). She made me into a hug person. I remember when we first met in FYBCOM , I would sit next to her in the lectures cause I didn't know anyone else and at 7 am you really don't want to make friends so I would never talk, but then one day I did and it hasn't stopped since then. She is my indulgent buddy we go to posh places and eat expensive things , something I don't do with anyone else.:P
    Ketki is there when I need her the most , always comforting always understanding and sometimes we hurt each other but I don't think she can live without me either. :P We don't have to speak everyday and we don't have to meet everyday but our butterfly cupcakes and our building meetings are special. We write wishes on normal trees and we eat chocolate waffles at 8.30 in the morning.  I drop her to work on my day off just to spend time with her and she knows when I've cried even if I'll never accept it. The person who'll always show me the right thing to do but will still stand by me while I do the wrong , the person who lets me learn from my mistakes and then covers them up with a hug. The  person who listens to my CRAZY ideas and says " I think you should sleep " :P The person who'll remove the ring she's wearing and put it on my finger because I like it so much and the person who'll buy me gifts unnecessarily . I told you she is my mom. She spoils me. I lovu :D I think she's beautiful inside and out,she's my bestfriend. 

Meet my favourite retard Abhishek . I've known him for 4 years now and what amazing 4 years they have been , so strange also. Life is strange. He is the silent pillar of strength for me . Always there but quietly . I have said this to many people but never to him but he is always there on my worst days , somehow . I don't know how he does it , but when I think I've had the worst day ever a simple conversation with him or a chance meeting makes my day. I don't even need to tell him I'm sad. He is my happiness friend. A charmer and a favourite among the ladies though I don't get why cause he can be very annoying. VERY ANNOYING.  
 His sense of humour is epic . We don't really get into the details about each other's life but somehow we don't have to. Being friends with him is as easy as  1..2..3 . Yet he makes it to this list which means he is VERY important. He will shout at me when he has to and will give me the correct advice in the most blunt way possible. He's not said a single nice thing to me since I've known him and now I've just given up hope. He will not know what to do when I cry so I spare him the pain of making me stop. But he can make me laugh and smile when I need it the most.
   I could tell him my deepest secrets and be sure he will tell the rest of the world , digestive problems he suffers from :P but I still share my chotu motu happiness with him and I'm very proud to have someone as amazing as him in my life. He's emotionally non-expressive , socially challenged and mentally 5 years old. He is stubborn and highly condescending but he's still  someone who is indispensable from my life because somewhere behind all this he has a gentle heart , a caring nature and an honest opinion about everything. He hurts easy but doesn't show it , and he is non expressive but very emotional. I know him better than he gives me credit for and I love him , yes I do ( Did this make you awkward abhishek :P well too bad :) )

We don't eat the same food ( She's Jain , they don't eat food ). We don't wear the same clothes . We don't have the same group of friends. We don't have a similar personality and we are not even studying the same course. She's not on facebook also IMAGINE. We are poles apart but probably the closest poles ever made. Opposites attract happened to us shayad :P
  She is my sunshine , my teacher , my inspiration and my idol. Chota package bada dhamaka. I've had the most insane talks and meetings with her. She is someone I don't have to see even in months but someone whose closer to me than people that see me everyday. We don't even meet on each other's birthday sometimes. We don't have to. That's us. She is the best thing that has been happening to me since 2008. Our swing dates are as good as a romantic dinner :P and in that little meeting we can share every single detail about each other's life. She is so full of life that you can be anything but sad around her. She is my happiness maker. She creates happiness :D
   The person who will understand the most inner feelings I possess and provide life changing theories on them :P Someday the uncle in the next building is going to leave his top floor terrace garden flat to us in his will and we are going to be rooomies . It could happen okay - " and I leave my house to the two girls that sit on the swing in the next building and lust my house " So simple. A phone call with this beautiful person makes my week and a meeting makes my month . It usually doesn't work when two people are so busy and see each other online on gtalk but just can't stop for a chat. But it does for us , effortlessly. I love you sunshine :*

 Vishant is my very special friend. I've known him since my first day in college. Its interesting how I remember the precise details. I met him through a friend of his from school who was my acquaintance and you know how it is , first day of college you want to make as many friends as possible , be considered "cool" etc. I met him shook hands , rather awkwardly and shared minor details about our schooling and then said  bye. I met alot of people that day as prospective
friends in the similar fashion , come on 5 years to be spent in this hell  hole. But when I came back home I told my mom only about him , what I said was " I met this guy from XYZ school , I think we'll make great friends " :D ( yeah you didn't know that did you? :) )
    Vishant is my postivity friend :D Everyone needs a him in their life. He is just so awesomely cute and socially awkward sometimes. We've had some amazing times , heart to heart talks and indulgent cupcakes :P I could never be bored of him. We've had our own set of issues like any two people but he is someone I would never want to lose. He is the inspiration for this blog as well BTW and I can't thank him enough for that . He is always encouraging and non judgementally understanding . He is the only person I genuinely feel like hugging when I meet him. We don't get to often these days but that doesn't change a thing. Vishant Pachisia you are one special cookie and I love having you in my life . Thank you for everything. :D I louuu you :D
Ps : If you move to NEW YORK , I swear I'm coming right behind you . Don't go man :( I'll seriously pile on and become rooomies with you :D :D What fun ,  then soon after you'll throw me out due to your OCD but still :P :D


My bestfriend since 6th Std. I've lost touch with most of my friends from school , sometimes voluntarily and sometimes due to the other reasons. But Yaashna has always been there , never giving up on me , never judging , never misunderstanding and never letting me feel alone . She is the reason why I have such high expectations of people because there is someone who cares for me enough to do anything, literally anything for me .
  Yes , I am a human and like most selfish humans I take her for granted too , I wish could not. She is someone who understands the silence , the thought process and also my next move from the look on my face. She gets happier than me when I have a romantic experience because that's just how it is :P She made me understand what being the best friend means , most people can't live up to that . She does it effortlessly. Thank you for standing beside me through whatever , good and bad . She'll play along even when I'm doing the wrong thing and face the consequences with me. She is the person who needs my approval when she dates someone and who'll eat manhattan fries with me even when she has food poisoning . She's the one whose mom will make food for me and dad will drop me home from school. The awesome feeling when your bestfriend's family considers you as a member. With exceptions ofcourse I'm going to marry her hot cousin , therefore I am in no way related to him whatsoever. Then we'd be sister in laws *hi 5*. She's my soul sister . She writes me a letter each year on my birthday and sometimes even otherwise to let me know how awesome I am , I'm not actually. But she makes me feel like I am. I'm lucky to have YOU Yaashna. Thank you :) I love you :*

Monu :D He was my senior at office ,  
though I never treated him as one. He's the newest addition to my world. He is so quiet and shy sometimes I really wonder how we are friends . Monu is someone who'll be there for you in the middle of the night and bring you icecream when you really need it. My 2 am friend , to get anything out of him all I have to do is make a puppy face and say " Pleasee Monu "
   The first person to dry the tears and first person to get excited with you when you are happy. He'll listen to all my yap yap without getting tired and then say " Kya paagal hai tu " :P
Who could have thought I would be so close with someone from office , though now he is become Bada Aadmi and works at the BIG 4. Our drives , long conversations and aivaye meetings on railway stations are special to me . He is the only person who physically hit me when I stopped talking to him for sometime . Imagine , so strong he is . He hit me :| 
I don't have to talk to him all day nor everyday but I just have to say " Monuuuu" and he'll be there. So many years he was in Hydrebad hence he couldn't enter my life earlier, never the minds . Its never too late.  >:D< Love you Monu. :D 

I  have known him for 2 years now, and i don't remember exactly when we became such good friends. Ekdum like falling in friend love :P
I can share anything with him and he will not judge , he will actually encourage my nonsense and even add to it :P.
  I don't talk to him everyday either ( Yeah I'm saying that alot I know , job and all that don't get time :( )
But even with him , I don't have to speak everyday but when we do it starts from where we stopped last time, effortlessly. My every happiness is shared and sadness is divided with him. The number of times he has said " Strong Bano , don't let something affect you so much " I really appreciate it Raj :) He keeps experimenting with his hair , which I hate and say " Cheee " everytime he shows me but I still love him . He is awesome . He is someone who will listen to everything you say with immense patience and your secrets will always remain safe with him. He is someone who will not let me run from my problems and say " Face it , main hoon na " ( Insert srk hand action :P ) When I reach my saturation point and know I want to quit CA , I'm going to become Shimla main travel guide with him :P That is a plan B if you want to call it. Thank you Raj for always being there , standing strongly ALWAYS :D :)

Okay so with this I end my list of super special people . I know only these people are going to read the post till the end , so its okay.
PS : This list is in no particular order . Don't argue
