People around me these days...

Well, there is a common thing about people around me these days...

There is a person who is in love and wants to run away from it at the same time there is someone who is in love and wants to run towards it.

There is a person who is utterly serious with love and then there is someone who flirts with love

There is someone who is choked down with lot of love (of so many people) and then then there is someone who desperately wants to be loved

There is someone who does not think love exists and then there is someone who is out in search of true love.

There is someone who does not want to fall in love becuase of a previous love and then there is someone who wants to fall in love to forget the past love

There is someone who is in love and does not want to accept it at the same time there is someone who expresses the love so much that nobody wants to believe in it

And then there is me...who discusses all the above permutations and combinations...and that too with lot of interest and love :)

Remembering Tej...

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.

3. He was the best closer that you would want in your team - knew how to finish things. Whether it was AV shoot in Chennai, fixing dozens of cabs, writing a strategic prese…
