On a serious note

It is at strange times and circumstances that certain nuances of life hits one hard, while the unassuming innocent soul is least likely to expect a profound thought.

We mortal beings are habituated with tolerating people. Boy, we even tolerate the ones who leaves a sense of why-didn't-i-die-before-i-had-to-confront-this-being. But then even they are an inevitable part of our lives. Without them we'd never learn to value the rest of the folks. It's strange to meet varied nature of people with a paradoxical like-mindedness. At times, specially when exams are over and you have idle thoughts to spare, you'd realise with a faint smile, the affection of a person who likes you for who you really are, and not how your appearance makes you to be. The friends who may not boast of an undying bond forever and after, but provide some really good memories for the future, some unadulterated fun for the present, and some simple things to learn about the tricks of life and times, (that does include a plethora of corny jokes and other forms of jargon). The friend whose quiet gestures from a far off city gives you the confidence that you often lack: a consequence of being in the presence of super-man like people, with super intelligence and super appeal, (minus the inside-out mode of sense of fashion, if you know what I mean). This quiet confidence nudges you along this world full of extraordinary people, making you realise that it is nowadays often so extraordinary to be just another ordinary person. Somehow the idea makes me rather content. I am amidst good people.

P.S: I had philosophy examination today. That might explain what seems inexplicable in this note.

Boy! It was some philosophy :) That was an interesting and very thoughtful read. All along as I was reading, I was trying to relate such a thing about good people in my life. Really you are lucky to be amidst the good people whom you can count on.
I wish every person tries to be one such good person in others’ lives to make this world a better place to live on and to bring lots of sunshine in others’ lives. May I live as well!

Keep up the good work :)

Friendship, yes I always thought those friends with filmy dialogues were something fake. All a friend needs to do is "provide some really good memories for the future, some unadulterated fun for the present, and some simple things to learn about the tricks of life and times". Thanks for vindicating me.
