I had posted a post "We all have one life" and this post can actually be taken as a sequeal to that blog.
I have a job which entails meeting lots and lots of people and also because of my nature of analyzing people's personality and forming first hand impressions, I think so much about even a 1 minute meeting with a person.

Everybody has such a unique story to tell....some stories you would love to know more...some stories which make you damn curious and provoke an urge to go deeper....some stories which make you laugh....some stories which give me learning for my life....

People who startle me.....people whom I least expect to be mature end up helluva mature...people whom I look up as mature end up being kiddish....people who inspire you to keep smiling in life....people whom you want to tell...DUDE! HAVE A BREAK!!! ..... there are times my first impression has been falsified....but what the heck....I guess...I love knowing new people....getting to know about them....and then un-knowing them....every story of a persons life is so unique....

You don't normally think of writing this for a friend who was just 31 years old.
Friend who you have just met.
I dont want any of you, reading this, to experience this ever again.

Tejendra Gwala, or Tej, as we lovingly called him, a 6ft 2 inches man was still a boy at heart. Full of dreams, full of youth and full of  dare to be different from everyone out there.



Few things -

1. He knew how to make you comfortable - I spent innumerable evenings with him - where he would just go and start speaking with strangers - whether t was a gym, dhaba or a 5 star restaurant

2. He knew his values - I was just 1 year younger than I was but he respected me and Aakriti (my wife) as his real brother and Bhabhi. There were dozens of time, when he would just call and say - I want "Ghar ka khana" and lets go for a drive.
