The Colors of Friendship

Being kids we always wanted the time go faster so that we could grow up and start doing things that all the adults do. Having fun when we want, staying up till late, eat all types of sweets and junk food, going out when we want and stay over night at friend's place. Now, when we are grown up, all we want sometimes is to go back in time to those happy moments when we werent stressed over dead lines, break ups, family problems. When we didnt have any responsibilities and the biggest worry was about the neighbour girl having a new doll and you not.

Now we dont want the time to go faster anymore, in fact sometimes we even want it to stop because we dont have enough of it. Work, family responsibilities, studies take all of it. How often we meet up with friends and talk to them other than online? How often you manage to go to a party on a week day? How often it happens that the only thing you want to do in the weekend is to SLEEP?? Because thats what your body needs - complete rest after all the stress of today's life.

And how often you heard from your friends, family members, aquaintances that they dont have time to read the latest books, to watch the latest movies, to have peaceful time with friends because they are BUSY.

But time goes on, it doesnt stop for us, and we miss on a lot of things because of being too busy to realize that it is our life which is passing by. And we are going somehow parallel to it, but not living, worrying about having little time for all the things we should complete. Trying to catch up with a lot of things but failing because there are always more important ones.

There is always this lack of time, and no matter how hard we try, we will never be able to complete everything in due time. Then why not take a break and look around? Find one minute to enjoy the sunrise, take 5 mins to make your friend smile... why not to take some peaceful time to enjoy a cup of coffee with your best friend, to watch a rainbow, to read a novel. Find time for things you love because once you may realize it is necessary it will be already too late.

Take one minute of your day to make your loved ones feel they are special. One can never be too busy to find time to say "I love you" to special people in your life: family, friends.... It hardly takes a minute of your time but the smile on their faces will make you feel it is worthwhile.

Now I want to thank people who took their precious time to pass on the awards to me in the last couple of weeks.


Thank you all sooooooo much!! :)

Now the time has come to pass on some awards.

Here I am passing this award received from Sameera to the bloggers whom I have known for longer than the rest as they were here with me all the time giving their support, understanding, care and love: Akila, Ameya, Div, Preetilata and Shashi.

Next award I also received from Sameera, long long ago, recently Preeti awarded me with the same, so now i decided to pass it on as well :)

And I am passing it on to Akki, Ameya, Div, Hope, Nick, Mads, Kaylee, Shashi, Maverick, JJ, Zahid, Vands, Anoop, Neers, Raaji as you all being regular readers inspired me to writing with your comments :)

Now I want to pass on some new awards which i think my readers deserve as all of you are very special people indeed. Just dont go anywhere and wait till the end of the show ;)

All blogs on my blogroll are special ones - their authors are amazing people and they deserve the best in everything they do, so here is my small attempt of giving them something they deserve, hope you all will accept it and pass on to other special bloggers:

Next one is for people whose writings bring colours into our lives - the ones whose touch to blogging made this world more colourful and special - Sameera, Akila, Preetilata.

Keep bringing colours into our lives, girls :) Love you all sooooooooooooo much!!

Next one is for few more people. Reading their blogs makes me always feel good, thats what i am doing in the office instead of doing proper work :P

This one goes to Div, Mads, Vands, Ameya, Shashi, Zahid, Anoop, JJ, Shalini, Nick as well as Sami, Akki and Preeti! :)

Here is one more which I want to give to some really cute, sweet, friendly people I have met out there in Bloggerville:

Neeraja, Kaylee, Hope, Curryegg.

And the last one for today. I love all my readers, I really do, but there are few whose comments make me smile, laugh, think, the ones that inspire me to no end. This award is for you -

Sami - dear, you know that you are the one who inspired me to being back to blogging after a long pause, thanks to you my writings improved, and even though i know sometimes you just say it was a great post when it really wasnt, it still makes me believe it was a good one :)

Div - sweetu, you are a great friend and even though you think you dont inspire me, you should know that you really do. Thanks to you i always try to add some nonsence into myposts, some humour and for you am also trying to stay serious to maintain some balance.

Akki and Ameya - girls, you have always been so sweet and nice, and your comments were always better than my posts, so i had nothing more to do than just to write better and better!! Everything for you. Love you both!! :)

Shashi - OMG, you are truly a master of comments, you complain you cant find words matching the post but the truth is you always do it so much great that makes me wait for your next comment very impatiently :D Thank you so much for finding my posts worth reading! :)

JJ - I know you less than the previous bloggers I mentioned but you always say you find something in my posts that is beyond my age.. hey, i am not that wise, not at all, but hearing this from you is always a great honour!!

Thank you to all of you for being there in my life and for appreciating me the way only you can do! :)

And feel free to pass on the awards to everyone you think deserve them.

alok Wednesday, January 16, 2008  

very touching post indeed...instantly reminds me of the Jagjit singh's masterpiece "woh kagaz ki kasti...". Childhood n friends r a treasure of life time. I take this opportunity to invite all readers to visit "" and leave comments.

Known Stranger Wednesday, January 16, 2008  

a cheerful blog page. nice one

Vasanthan Friday, January 18, 2008  

Your post is so true. when i was young i could not wait to grow up. but i want time to just stop for me. Very True!

Lena Friday, January 18, 2008  

"Childhood n friends r a treasure of life time." - absolutely true, alok :)

Lena Friday, January 18, 2008  

known stranger, thank you :)

Lena Friday, January 18, 2008  

yes, vasanthan :)
you are absolutely right, we are never satisfied with whatever you have and then it is already late and impossible to come back in time :)

Noelevz Monday, January 21, 2008  

I totally agree with you on this one! When we were young we were impatient, we wanted to growup immediately. But as we get older we wish that time would just stand still for a moment so that we can savor the each day bacause it just flys by so fast.

Lena Monday, January 21, 2008  

@ Noelevz:
absolutely right, we dont know what we want and once we realize it it is already too late :)

thanks for dropping by :)
