Never Again...



The abandoned boat was inside our college campus beside a deep pond. Pritam and I were best buddies , would go there in the evening after our classes see the other guys swim in the pond nearby before the canteen snacks time. We would sit for an hour or two discussing life . Although I have tried to be impartial in most of the matters , maybe I have made mistakes too.

 Pritam had misunderstood me once and we were not talking since morning that day. I did not go to the boat that evening. I felt that was the best way to avoid him and make him miss me.

That day after the snacks when I returned my hostel room I found lot of shouting and chaos in the glimmering lights of the corridor. What I understood reminded me of the quote by Mark Twain , “I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened" . 

Pritam , in my absense , had tried to join those guys who were swimming. He never knew that it may turn fatal. Nobody knew. He almost got drowned and was rushed to the hospital. 

What I felt I can not express. I only said in my mind , " Never again will I fight with you" .

P.S : This is a true incident and he is still one of the best buddies, only I have changed his name.

  6. So much energy is expended in fighting better by far to accept each others differences and keep quiet.

  8. Wonderful that your friend survived and that your friendship has endured. We often take for granted those we love until they are gone. We are blessed when we get a warning and learn the value of our friends before it is too late. Thank you for linking to In Other Words.
