I think this is one post that you should read at leisure... so, if you're on your way to some place and just wanted to take a quick glance....neah! And for God's sake, actually, for my sake, pl don't comment withouth reading!!!
There are some things you want to make special. Because you think thats how its meant to be. And there are times when you want to stop by and appreciate a few people... not just take them for granted. This is my 50th post. Maybe its not a big deal after all...but to me, it is. And its dedicated to those people because of whom this blog is still alive and kicking. The readers of this blog. My friends. Its a little ironic that i've come to know people from my own school better after we all left school. But i guess its better late than never...Here's to all of you!!
Were you the breeze that just blew? The breeze that came...and disappeared even before i could realise its very presence...? I hoped for the breeze to return...and it has returned. It will always return.
(and....the "Best thing abt him/her" you'll be reading below is from my point of view... maybe, what i like alot abt the person...so, you could give us your opinions!)
Anu's the reason i smile the way i smile. If you're wondering why...simple. I remember the way she used to show all her teeth when she had braces on...! And Divya has now become an ardent follower!:D eeee. I guess one of the funniest things we've done togther is coin the word BLOB and use it whenever possible, however irrelevant the context! esp in chem lab...pardners!!Lol...and, cycling buddies! Gawd, the way we used to pass comments on the guys on the roads! Best thing abt her : Dimple!! And...the facial expressions when narrating something funny (i hope u guys know wat i mean...) ;-) And singing with her!
Better known as just "caulagi". Someone who is trying to turn bully (can you believe that?), and has failed miserably...lol. 10 years down the lane, he is going to own his own designer collection titled "Caulagi's" which nikhil thinks sounds very French!So welcome the future Manish Malhotra!One of the most enjoyable things we did together - get into a conspiracy to fool blogger world with news abt his supposed girl friend! That was so much fun! lol...
Best thing abt him : Talent. Draws like a dream. And... discussing all the junky movies that come out! And... he always keeps in touch, even if i may be slightly on the busier side ;-) (don't kill me for this Caulagi!)
Tsb sir.According to him, Seriousness is for the insane! Like i said, its ironic that we come to know a few people better after school...this is one such case. But, i think we always knew that tsb = joker in vm. And a good one! Lord of randomness! And hey, we're not forgetting the burping competitions which he always won are we? hehe...12A folks definitely remember the carbo-cation (carbocashion) episode! And the football, or rather pass-pass sesions where he
was always the Golie! And, he could be the easiest person to bribe! all you need is one plate of pongal chutney or masala dosa with hot narasus filter coffee! Anybody want some work done?
Best thing abt him : The humour! I havent had a single convo with him till date which hasn't left me laughing abt something...and the randomness which make alot of sense! and, the way he always types 'kaapi'!
Aah. We go back a long way...I think she was the one girl who was teased with the maximum no.of guys! Lol. From eshwran to nivas to shishir to Aditya...! You guys'll remember the bulb you gave her for her birthday...that was damn cute! And...she still has it. And yes, 12A's official singer. And i think she also happens to be the one who has received the most no.of surprises! I'll always rmbr the expression on her face when we surprise her... lol. It feels nice to see it!And... in the photo, she has a very decorated face, looking like some kind of a red indian! :D It was this year's b'day surprise!!
Best thing abt her : The way she analyses situations...and the way she gets irritated when i leave a piece of news incomplete... it makes me so mad with sadistic pleasure! Lol... she knows i always do it... but she'll still get mad :) I guess those kinds of things, we take for granted in very few people!
Future designer being nurtured by the fashion-yelling atmosphere of National Intsitute of Designing (NID). She's such an enthu-cutlet! And the enthusiasm is contagious...! She used to worship MK sir... and i guess she was the reason i did atleast half the math problems he gave us! Or then, Thasall! I remember she used to call me her "planning-guru"! Something i found a little embarassing... but liked all the same as long as she didn't use it infront of others! One of the most mermorable things abt her - the exchange betn her and Shakku! Anyone who didn't hear that, pl lemme know... i'll definitely narrate it! Way to go madhu!
Best thing abt her : The enthusiasm. And the books...she narrates stories so well!
(madhu, sorry i din have any other pic of u!)
Meaning of the word Nidhee - a Pink-loving sugary incarnation overflowing with sweet-ness.She cant say NO to anyone! Man... and people take advantage of that once in a while!( maybe i have a tendency to come under that list!) She partly features in the 'got to know better after school' list...ironic. Till now i thought she had the brightest smile ever, but a few months back i found out she had the brightest skin too! ( after nil said she has cheeks that glow!LOL) We were
braces buddies till a few days back... nj, did u have to get them off? One of the things we enjoy...the bike rides!!! Aaaaaah. And ofcourse hogging together, whenever, wherever!
Best thing abt her : The smile!! and...no one's got sweeter! And... the aircel to aircel free calls scheme! Am sure that saves both of us alot of money...!
Ever heard of the word misconception? Aah...perfect example! Nik was labelled the biggest "padips" of the class in 11A. With the glasses and all... he really looked like an intellectual quizzer who'd made better friends with his books rather than the people around him! One msn convo, and one phone convo was enough to prove he was just as crazy as the rest of us. And 11A people, rmbr sheetal? Lol... that was super fun! He used to get so irrrritated! And mr.Leo's convos can also leave you laughing like hell. I think the incident we'll all rmbr best w.r.t nik is his pizza hut treat! Awesome fun man... and he was such a gracious host!:) Even after looking at the bill, he decided to shake hands with every one of this guests! Way to go Nik!
Best thing abt him : His abilities as a speaker. The way he rates the movies he watches... and that deep voice!
Presently calling himself Swami Nilesh Maharaj! I think Nil has always been known for the those spontaneous jokes! How many times we would have laughed... and obviously for his talent... what dancing man! Used to make me wonder if he was made of rubber band or something... I particularly rmbr the practice for his farewell dance - smooth criminal. Simply superb. And the most famous - Babuji! With his characteristic green jeans, white shirt and cap...Another thing is his phrase 'Show your dirty teeth'! I think he has the whitest teeth i've come across so far... and a very teethy smile! We're not forgetting football here...:D Lavanya's hse game, school...! Damn nil, the next time we play, we should make sure there's audience ;-)!
Best thing abt him : The jokes! Nil, pl don't stop them man... they rock! We don't want Nil maharaj n all. And i think he has the coolest caps in town! All branded...if only i had a sis like his! and obv the dance... *sigh*
Queens of sorries. She always has them well stocked up just in case she has to pull one out, sometime, some place! We make the drunken twosome! Man, i'm so normal in class...the minute i sit next to her, some kind of 'lets crack up' mechanism gets triggered and there goes...Sand, i think we're the only people who get so drunken just by thinking of a bacardi bottle! Lol...One of the things i'll always remember is the birthday surprise u gave me... it was great! And ofcourse... all the times we sit in the last row and sing in our pakka bewdi tones...with actions sometimes! not giving a damn abt whether others are looking or not... lol! Its such an escape from pretending to listen to boring lectures...
Best thing abt her : Her facial expressions! Simply superb...and obv all the mokkais in class...
My braces buddy! Maybe its not very wrong to say shruti has 2 homes... and mine happens to be the second one ;-)!!! Lol...She's the only person whose seen me in ALL sorts of attires and hairstyles (night-dress/kondai) and thats because she comes when least expected...and most of the time, gives no intimation! So lets just say i no longer consider her visits unexpected ;-). I don't know what her fingers are made of...she sketches/shades like a dream! Damn these archi
students! One of the incidents i'll always rmbr - the time when we both lay flat on our backs on the bare floor of my terrace gazing up at the starry sky...beauty beyond words.
Best thing abt her : her kurthas!They so rock... And sketches... and her mom's pasta and brownies! :D
Yours truly, Shantaram, the mechanical engineer with a teethy smile and a deep voice! He is again one of those people who fall under the 'better late than never' category even though we sat for hours together painting wooden hollows on charts for dramatics props... and conspired against KPR sir by copying in a test! LOL... that was super fun! Nilesh, remember aah? And here's another soccer lover! I like this... 3 soccer lovers in this list of mine! Great pass-pass at Anu's house last year! The three golden letters-AVK. Any guesses people? Ok, its just avuthu vitte Kazhude (untied donkey!)...a term used in households in chennai...when kids are vetti right after exams (mostly). And i guess that happened to me when my college opened after 6 months!:D
Best thing abt him : The passion he has for soccer! One thing i totally relate to...And obv that teethy smile!
I took quite sometime putting this post together...and i enjoyed doing it! If you're wondering why the quote in green was put up.... After school, i never thought we'd be in touch through such a nice medium... so, the breeze has returned! And i hope it stays... Thank You all so much for making this possible! Love you all.... God bless.
Yours "some moments give you such great satisfaction" ly
