5000 Views of the Blog, and a Post dedicated to Friends...

This is the first time I am posting on achieving a milestone in my blogging career. Prior to this, I missed all the significant events of my internet space e.g. my blog-anniversary,50 Posts etc. 

I had been awaiting for this day for so long and finally it arrived. On 27 October 2011, my blog touched the 5000 views mark. It's glad to see it growing and now I know of the feeling when one's kid starts walking. It's amazing. I am thankful to all my viewers, followers, criticizers and everyone who has given me input in making this blog more beautiful and worth reading. Would like to mention some of my favorite posts till now:


Innovation is back...Welcome to the blogging world....
The Concept of Free World!!!!
All those days!!!!
I was her fifth.....
I still remember that starlit night...

I have decided to dedicate this post to all the friends who had been the part of my life and this journey towards becoming a better human being. I must consider myself lucky enough to be surrounded by few genuine friends always. Though, through the journey the set of these buddies kept changing but I was always lucky to have 'good' friends. These friends kept motivating me towards achieving the goals of my life. They had always been around, be it a crisis or a celebration. The best thing about being with them is that we can keep talking crap and crap is given attention and discussed seriously. 

If I rewind the cassette called life, it reminds me of few names like Mayank Nagia (a 3rd class buddy), Ravi Kapoor, Pooja, Ashish Mishra, Rishabh Saxena, Rinki, Satish Joshi, Dhiraj (Lala), Kishore, Vinay, Prashant Yadav. All these  people had been with me during my pre-graduation days. A new league of friends belong to the era when my actual career took off. Sandeep Singh, Tushar, Ravi Ramani and Swapnil Bhamre used to be my all time buddies. All of them are well settled now, including me :). 

Then I would like to mention few names who mean a lot to me. Harsh, Pushpanjali, Sumit and Mushfiq and that's it. Being with these four gives me comfort like anything. Though none of us similar and act opposite in our own individual way, but we gel really well whenever we are together. You may not believe but we had been able to manage a get together at least once in a month despite being busy in our own professional and personal life. Sometimes it's a hard believing fact that professional buddies can become so much personal friends that they start playing an important part in your life. I can look towards these faces, every time I am faced with challenges and constraints to overcome, and same applies to them.  

I still don't support the proverb "A friend in need is a friend indeed and I also don't find that Airtel advertisement "Kyuki har ek friend jaroori hota hai" exciting enough, because both these entities picturise friends as a materialistic personality who is either taking help, or helping you. My definition of friend is that they exist to be with you. You might not need them but they are still there to stand by you, whatever, wherever, and whenever it may be. 

Lastly, if you might have dropped by this post and read it completely by mistake. Do drop your take on the word called "Friend".

Thanks for reading me :)

With Love,
Hemant

    As for a friend, for me it is someone who you feel special by your heart. That's the only criteria for me.
