A village girl and a female from metro city met under a hill. They spoke different language and had diverse culture. Yet, a single word bonded them… FRIENDSHIP! I am not going to narrate a fable. What I told you is how I found a friend named Meenakshi Nautiyal.
Most of my blog readers will be familiar with that name. Meenakshi is mostly the one who comments at my blogpost first. Whenever I post something in this blog, she will be the first person to know. That may be the reason why Deepak, one of my blogger friends believed that Meenakshi is my fake profile!
We both studied together for post graduation. I and Meenakshi don’t have too many similarities. Initially, I had a doubt whether I can get along with a girl from Mumbai. But I was really surprised to know that she doesn’t know how to apply makeup. My perception about a city girl changed completely after seeing her.
Three Qualities of Meenakshi:
- Caring & Helping
- Lively & Jovial
- Open & Simple
She is short and slim. If you are a person who believes eating is the sole activity that frames a person’s physical structure, you must meet her. Her lunch equals my full day diet. And the funniest thing is that she remains slim and I remain plump.
She has many teddies with her. Among that there is a yellow teddy which is huge and cute. Every time I see that, I think of stealing it. Somehow it never happened…!
The most essential quality needed for a friend is to keep in touch with his/her buddies. In case of Meenakshi, whenever I message her I’ll get the reply instantly. When I am depressed, I used to SMS her: “I wish to hear your scolding”!
Three Best Moments With Meenakshi:
- Food sessions:
I am sure that the staff of Dominos in Coimbatore will be surprised to see a tiny girl Meenakshi eating a medium pizza and a huge female like me having a small one. Always when we order any food, she takes half from my plate after completing her. Thanks to her for helping me to get rid of fine at mess for wasting food.
Reporting was the only enjoyment during college hours. We go out, roam and have lots of fun while students from other departments stay in their classes listening to boring lectures. We wandered through Palakkad and Coimbatore searching for news. Visiting Meher village was a wonderful experience. First TV news reporting from Palakkad was also special.
- Combine studies:
She is a good reader and writer. I would say I passed all semester exams of MA Communication because of this girl. She explains each topic very well. Globalization, Media studies, Communication Theory… Oh God! I can’t think of those topics now.
Hard times will let you know who your real friends are! There is another category of friends who act as your best buddies and make you fools. They enjoy seeing you getting trapped. True friends will remain with you during the ups and downs of your life. I should say I am lucky to have such a pal in my life.
