"As the rain beats a soft rhythm on the window pane, a gush of memory takes me back to my college days. A troop of five girl on a bike giggling and laughing make their way towards the hills as the soft showers kisses their tender skin. They were on their way to celebrate the most cherished day of the year- 'Friendship day'. After a ride for an hour, they stopped near a gentle flowing river, to play their most favourite game, 'get-wet-set-gel'. The game was all about getting drenched in water and old memories of innocent childhood days to build a stronger bond of friendship. As I was all lost in the chitter chat of the misty scene the mischievous wind woke me up to the reality, were I was seated all alone in a closed closet with the pictures of my best friends all around me."
Well! Thats what usually happens to the cherished friendships.
