The Story goes like this ... A and B were friends at college. A studies a different course than B. After the course got over, A gets a good job, she gets married and is happy. B studies higher, he does research, etc. A and B lose touch after few months after college.After 3 years A & B are living in different locations in the same country.
Now starts the disgusting part, B comes to the place where A lives for some reason and tries to get in touch with A, by asking this intermediate friend of her contact details. A is not in station luckily and hence B is not able to meet A. Now when A comes back, she learns from this friend that B was here, and wanted to get in touch/meet her.
So as a courtesy, A calls B by phone. ...
A: Hi How are you? You came here, Sorry I was not in town.
B: Its ok. I had time so I thought I will see you.
A: So for time pass, you wanted to see me. (Disgusted reply)
B: Maybe you can say so.
A: So whats happening?
B: Nothing, how is your err....
A: My husband's name is Mr.X
B: No, I know his name but I thought you prefer calling him your, ok ok, forget it.(grins)
A: Oh so you read my blog? (very sarcastic reply)
B: yes, dont you people write anything useful.. (mentions few famous blog readers and writers names)
A: If you dont like why are you reading our blogs
B: No If I dont have anything to do, another friend of mine and I tease and laugh over all your writing.
A is now really angry
B: Especially these married women, dont you have any brains, nothing good you'll can write?
A is really irritated, and then says "Ok, I got to go"
B say " Ok so you are growing old thats, why you arent arguing (vayasayiruchu unaku)"
A doesnt want to react to this and hangs up thinking she neednt take up this nonsense anymore.
The story ends here.
Well as you would have guess A is me. And that person B was once my so called friend.
To give you a heads up on my blogging .. I started it sometime in June 2006, impressed by some very good bloggers.(I had actually started a blog early in 2002, but then discontinued very soon, due to a lot of reasons).
Once I started blogging this year,every time I published a post, it gave me a nice feeling - something like a very well expressed thought/opinion. Every human beings' first and foremost wish is to be paid attention to or being listened to. And blogging satisfies that wish greatly, I feel.
Every time a comment arrives, the blog owners are so happy to see it and smile to themselves.
Above all the invisible friendship that develops between fellow bloggers is so very good. You might have seen the snaps of them in their profiles,but still you make an image of such friend through their writing. Thats another beautiful aspect of blogging.I sometimes feel so happy to have so many friends who write so well,and have a liking for our posts.
With so many reading your blog eagerly and commenting too, still there are such rare cases, who can never stand anything productive and are the first discouragement/obstacles to growth in life. With such people ridiculing our blogging, the truth is that, not 1 blogger is going to get affected with such cheap comments and tricks. Get it straight that it further motivates us to blog more.
And one more thing that got on my nerves is that,what the hell do such people think, when they make such generic comments about women.Terrible attitude I should say, pity their mother, sisters or spouse(if they ever happen to get married). Well the outcome of this so called friendship is the anger it triggered, this post and a wonderful learning on how very careful we need to be when choosing someone to be your friend.
I apologise to my dear fellow bloggers if I had sounded very harsh,even am not sure if I should have put this post, but I couldnt help.However I cant help getting reminded of the deaf frog that succeeded to come out of a deep pit with lot of frogs shouting from outside that it cant make it!
