A wish and a prayer:)

February 2, 2010

That I write just such a post for you 50/60/add any number years down the line.
For a most cherished friend.
Not just any friend though but one who is really special, one who loves me just the way I am, no questions asked.

I know we both write a lot about each other… we talk about each other a lot too…but my fondest wish (and I know it will happen just so) is that I and Sols write for each other even 60 years down the line celebrating this bond that started here in the virtual world but continued in the real world:)

When sisters stand shoulder to shoulder, who stands a chance against us? ~Pam Brown

It says a lot on its own doesn’t it? This is the friend and sister who guards my back as I guard hers. The one who turns ferociously protective when anyone dares to criticize her sis. The ‘mamma hen’ role , one that we take in turns.

If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child. ~Linda Sunshine

(murderous thoughts along these lines ran through her mind I am telling ya…about wringing my neck that is :D)

Gal enjoying that cuppa = Solilo
Gal calling Solilo=Indy :mrgreen:

OR it could also be

Gal enjoying that cuppa = Indy
Gal calling Indy=Solilo :mrgreen:

you see that’s how it is….literally…one doesn’t have to think twice before picking up the phone.

A friend who calls up because she’s worried as hell about where you have been and whether you might be ill and after ensuring that all’s in order and that infact you are with the guy who is known as PM and out enjoying yourself …err then the same previously worried friend changes track and gives a good piece of her mind and indulges in some serious arse kicking (and boy! was it serious)
(yeah mine ..poor me! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Indy waiting for some sympathy to come her way :mrgreen: )

A friend who made this online cynic believe for the first time that one could find friendships and great friendships at that …the forever kind …..all in this virtual world…

Solilo? This one’s dedicated to you:) You are a cherished friend , one who makes me believe that this too can happen. That two strangers across continents can form a bond that’s really hard to explain.:) That friendships, the kind that make one believe that we really have known each other for years; jumped in the mud puddles together, played with the same toys, shared giggles about same boys while tying each otherโ€™s pigtails.
That one might still giggle like a teenager when talking with a friend who seems to be as mad ๐Ÿ˜€ That she has a laugh that makes you smile sitting across the oceans. That she talks non-stop and you wonder is this finally someone who can give me serious competition in the chatterbox department? ๐Ÿ˜€
That she tells Peanut all about you on the phone and then lil Peanut calls you maasi in the most adorable tone imaginable that makes your heart go awww….
That she is trying to make you a part of her daughter’s world too…it touches your heart like nothing else could. Coz you know then that this is serious. For keeps.

That there are strangers whom one meets at every corner in life , strangers just waiting to be friends and that when we meet them and how we meet them doesn’t matter . All that matters is that they are here in our life now and that they will stay forever in a corner of our hearts that’s their very own.

That these lines that I wrote way back for you still hold true:) and always will.
(and for some special old friends who have been on this journey ever since I entered the blog world? Go and take a look see๐Ÿ™‚ There are lines for all of you too:) remember?:)

A friend who sends a birthday gift and a wish and bookmarks the page that best describes our friendship:)

Lines that Sols bookmarked in the book she sent:)
In our lifetimes,
there are only so many genuine soul mates
only a few who really know us
as we know them
and enjoy us for who we truly are.

โ€œThere is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.โ€

Elizabeth Lawrence

And like someone said its never too late to have a happy childhood is there?:) And adding to the memories of a happy childhood to make it even more happier?:) Recommended and recommended highly at that! Try it!Its good for the soul:) And with the most special of friends, the can call up at 3 am ones, the madcap ones..those friends will always make your childhood come alive….no matter what…no matter where….

Of course now the virtual friendship that started back in 2008 has translated into a beautiful and cherished real life one…but there was a time when I was wary of online friends/people/readers…still am infact.

There were and are very few people I would trust completely or would love to meet in real life.

Because really….be honest. Aren’t you a little wary of who or what kind of a person sits behind that lil screen typing away to glory?

I know I am.Very wary.
A little less than before but still spooked at times nevertheless. Some previous experiences have convinced me that one needs to be careful and mighty careful at that. Because you just never know.

There have been very few people I have wanted to meet in real life (and some who I cannot meet due to a hectic schedule ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but that’s another story)

The people whom I would gladly meet in real life? Without a second thought? I can count them on my fingers. They all know who they are:)

And then there are those who kind of make me jittery when I read/hear about their rambles and I wonder and re -think twice before reciprocating any of their words/gestures.

Sometimes there are people whom I would LOVE to meet in real life. But there is one very strange reason that stops me. I hesitate about meeting some of those whom I respect and admire a lot because I am apprehensive that the meeting might shatter some illusions that I was carrying about those virtual friends. (and who knows meeting me might shatter their illusions too:))

And sometimes it so happens that even when someone shows a mature writing style and a calmness that would make Buddha proud …..but there is this something you know? Like something that you cant quite put a finger on? Something that makes you jittery and you always pause when you come across him/her in the virtual world.

When all is said and done….isn’t it a possibility that someone who writes absolutely sanely and with a lot of calmness on the blog might be a complete whacko in real life?

I mean we keep on teaching and telling our children about the risks of online friendships and how they shouldn’t share personal information on social sites but what about us? Are we as careful as we are telling them to be?

So at the end of this ramble just two questions for all the friends here.

Have you found a friend in this virtual world and formed a relationship that’s really rare and cherished? One that you don’t even describe as a virtual one any longer because its so real and tangible for you now? I have heard many such beautiful stories (and a recent one where two blog friends met (part 1 and part 2) and hit it off quite well:) and trust me I would love to hear about more:)

How wary are you of meeting /interacting personally/forming relationships in this virtual world? Do you too think twice? Or is it just me who is paranoid in this department?:) And how do you decide who is the kind of person you would love to know about more? The kind with whom you are darn sure you can get along like crazy? Or even the kind whom you would respect or cherish even more if you met?

  3. February 3, 2010 12:39 am

    That’s was beyond words. But yes it does happen despite all the odds of internet world. So glad you guys found each other. ( I am tempted to say wishing you many many years of togetherness; but it is not wedding anniversary wish so I hold back ) ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    @ Soli – Don’t kill me pliss. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    me- hehe!all wishes are most welcome Misty:) the many years of togetherness wish will work as well:)

    • February 3, 2010 11:37 am

      Mishty, wedding is not the only bond that keeps two people together. That book is about friendship and the quote is from that book. So you can wish us many years of togetherness. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Won’t mind.

      BTW this is her dedication for my birthday (which was 2 weeks back) in her unique style. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • February 3, 2010 3:17 pm

        I know. But my wish would have sounded like that. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

        Oh oh Belated Birthday wishes Soli. Hope you had a blast.

  4. February 3, 2010 12:44 am

    Me First!?

    chaddo! first main kya rakha hai? pssttt till you come first that is ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • February 22, 2010 9:00 am

      Sigh!! Rohini wonly if you stop dancing in the snow and concentrate on the task at hand you may come first at blogs :mrgreen:

    • February 22, 2010 2:13 pm

      your DP is beautiful Rohini:) such innocence ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. February 3, 2010 12:45 am

    oh I’m so glad that you found a great friend in Sols ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well yes me too am a bit wary the way are about meeting virtual friends…have met 5 blogger in a bloggers meet 2 months back and we hit off fact made a very nice friend from there..and meeting one blogger friend tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚ excited and a bit nervous ๐Ÿ™‚

    But I think the key is in choosing the right people to meet in real world….I mean if you have been reading some one quiet regularly and vice-versa then the chances are you people will hit well…or else..who knows ๐Ÿ™‚

    And yes I wish you that you and Sols do write abt each other even 6o years down the line ๐Ÿ™‚ and I’ll read you guys ! ๐Ÿ™‚

    me- thanks Nu ((hugs)):)
    arre you have met 5 of em? great going
    and even better that you made one good friend there:)
    hmm true…the key is choosing the right could read someone’s words and form an opinion but even then one cant be absolutely sure…its all chance and our own intuition I suppose:)
    aww thanks darl..atleast one reader after 60 years is assured nw! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. February 3, 2010 12:46 am

    Lovely post… kudos to your friendship!

    Sometimes there are people whom I would LOVE to meet in real life. But there is one very strange reason that stops me. I hesitate about meeting some of those whom I respect and admire a lot because I am apprehensive that the meeting might shatter some illusions that I was carrying about those virtual friends. (and who knows meeting me might shatter their illusions too:)) so true..

    very beautiful post.. want to re read… ๐Ÿ™‚
    me thanks Rohini:) (hugs)

  7. February 3, 2010 12:53 am

    I hope (and pray) you and solilo are best of friends for life and are able to be with each other (meaning extremely close) like this even when you are in your 90s. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    me- hehe! amen to that!(hugs)and thanks Badz:)

  8. February 3, 2010 6:37 am

    Aww (tears in my eyes)!

    You are lucky to have found such a friend…I hope this friendship lasts a life time…
    me- aww thanks Sraboney:)(((((((((hugs))))))

    PS:- that plagiarism issue?anything on that front? read your tweet today

    • February 4, 2010 8:57 am

      I think that guy removed the post…Anyway, he’s a kid – 20 years or something…

    • February 4, 2010 8:58 am

      Oops! I spoke to soon…It’s still there…The comment thing is not working on the blog so I can’t leave him a message…Anyway, as I said, he’s only 20…
      me- if his post is still there Sraboney then do blog about it…if you cant post a comment then drop him a mail that you are going to be blogging about it if he doesnt remove the post ASAP
      …all of us can blog about it too….in polite words seeing as he is a kid …
      I understand that he is a kid but he also has to understand life’s most important lesson…copying/cheating is wrong no matter what the age…and blatant plagiarism at that! god!

    me- thanks a lot for the wishes Dhiren:)

  12. February 3, 2010 11:14 am

    Awww…that is such a beautiful dedication to a friend,Indy. The friendship between the two of you has become a cult of sorts. Solilo is one of the most matured and balanced persons I have come across in the blogworld and you are one of the sweetest and most passionate of the lot.
    me- aww ((hugs))Deeps that is just so sweet of you to write that:)
    It has always been a treat to read and know about you two from each other’s perspective. I had been wary of going that extra mile in forming a virtual friendship with my fellow bloggers but when I saw the blossoming of this friendship I felt I could too. And today I have been blessed with some wonderful friends in this virtual world too.
    me- (hugs)again coz you too have been blessed by such friends:)

    “I know we both write a lot about each otherโ€ฆ we talk about each other a lot tooโ€ฆbut my fondest wish (and I know it will happen just so) is that I and Sols write for each other even 60 years down the line celebrating this bond that started here in the virtual world but continued in the real world:)” -Amen,Abhi. Such a beautiful thought! Here’s wishing and praying this friendship never loses its sheen. Heres to an everlasting bond ๐Ÿ™‚
    me-thanks a lot Deeps:)
    I know this post is about the two of you. But still let me take this space to let you both know how privileged I have been to have you two as my friends. So thank you ever so much. Hugs and much love to you both.
    me- muah and ((hugs))for one of the sweetest comments Deeps:)

    Would have loved to go on and on. But not feeling very well,so will be back to spam some more once I’m up and about ๐Ÿ˜€

    God bless you two ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- arre!what happened to you? take care of your health and rest loads:)

  13. February 3, 2010 11:41 am

    you are lucky and am sure having such a friend is a beautiful feeling..
    but I dont have any friend i can call at 3 in the morning ๐Ÿ˜ฆ other than amit but we aren’t talking about them here.
    touch wood.. n here is my wish for your friendship to grow better n better n last more than 60 yrs ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- Sometimes life partners can be the bestest of friends….you have the 3AM one right beside you:)
    ((((hugs)))for that wish sweetie:)

  14. February 3, 2010 11:50 am

    Great to see such a friendship blossom online! Amazing!

    iused to be very paranoid abt such friendships but now I find it is not so scary! I used to be ridiculously scared of revealing my name, pic or any single detail, but after seeing people blog in their own names and putting up pix regularly and getting away with hanging everything lose online, I think over the years I’ve relaxed up and changed! But, I still am not sure I’d ever find such friendship online! You have been truly one of the lucky ones!!!

    Kudos to the two of you!

    me- ((((((hugs))))))))Fathy:) yeah I remember the time you are talking about..I wanted to murder the creeps who were troubling you…such creeps are best ignored as you did:) good for you! much love:)

  15. February 3, 2010 11:59 am

    This is an awesome post dear!!! I could really feel the bonds of friendship between you two!!

    As far as your questions are concerned, yep I have found 2 frenz in the virtual world whom are anything but virtual frenz now! One is WIAN we had too many coincidences going for us. We met online & realized later that we were neighbors some 9-10 years back ๐Ÿ˜€ what we share now is more than simple frenship!! She is my sounding board now ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- ah! am so curious about Wian now:) and a past connection?.amazing is the word! sounding board? see? one more beautiful story right here:)

    And then there is vimmuuu the great. I had never expected or dreamt to share the kind of bond I share with him. I tell him anything & everything without even saying don’t tell anyone (Which I use quite often). Certainly there are some bonds which are unexplainable but then am not looking out for explanations because am busy cherishing the friendship ๐Ÿ™‚

    me- ah! the devil himself! ๐Ÿ˜€ yeah yeah!dont let him read ๐Ÿ˜‰

    seriously , you know what I enjoy the most? the banter between you two specially your shudh hindi one that makes me crack up everytime and then Vimmuuu’s retorts ๐Ÿ˜€ one can interact like that only with a friend with whom one is totally comfy as you two are

    As far as being wary is concerned I do interact with many ppl but I am usually not very forthcoming about myself (though my blog makes me an open book ;-)) I have had some sour experiences which has made me very cautious. It is better to be safe than sorry later! And this one more reason that am usually not very enthusiastic about blog meetings ๐Ÿ™‚

    me- its better to be safe than sorry! exactly! I too am wary coz of some weird experiences….

    like you said that your blog is like an open book…and yet that you are not very forthcoming about yourself…..just because you write in a certain manner does not mean that people should expect you to be all gung ho and mighty friendly all the time..
    to so many you might come across as an extrovert..but then whom to be friends with should be according to your judgement no? rather than people who push themselves in one’s face all the time ….there is a fine line between personal and public in the virtual world and I think one should respect another’s personal space.

    Enough of my ramblings ๐Ÿ™‚ be regular girl!
    me- okie dokie ma’am ๐Ÿ˜€

    • February 4, 2010 6:05 am

      Smita, I nod in agreement about everything you wrote here. I am so much like you.

      • February 6, 2010 1:45 am

        Don.. is this includes..
        /*be regular girl!*/??? ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

    • February 4, 2010 9:47 am

      What if I tell you that me & WIAN even share our birthday’s?? ๐Ÿ˜‰ there are many more coincidences on similar lines that we share ๐Ÿ™‚
      me-birthdays also? n more coincidences? wah! truly a friendship made in heaven ๐Ÿ˜€

      And lol@ not letting the devil read this!!! I have already told him that have left something honest about him! I mean I hardly write good things about him so I ensure that when I do he SHUD read it ๐Ÿ˜€ btw u haven’t seen my 200th post have you?? do that you will die of shock!
      me- will read this..have heard a lot about it ๐Ÿ˜€ the devil had a hand in your post no? been meaning to read it..
      if Vimmuuu reads your words here poor thing will faint.. ๐Ÿ˜†
      jokes apart its a very cute friendship ๐Ÿ™‚

      And my dear girl that is exactly what I was meaning to say and am glad that I have maintained a distance despite the fact that I come out an open person ๐Ÿ™‚
      me- ๐Ÿ˜ณ err well after teaching lil kids, now have the habit of repeating the same thing in different words.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. February 3, 2010 12:00 pm

    Sniff… That was a beautiful Post Indy.
    It left me all teary eyed.
    Will come back and write more.

    God Bless your friendship. ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- thanks Pixie:) hw have you been?long time na?((hugs))and thank you:)

  17. February 3, 2010 12:00 pm

    me- right up there Deeps:)

  19. February 3, 2010 12:41 pm

    Nazar na lag jaaye, Indyeah and Solilo! It is very very rare people become so close and that too people who stay continents apart!
    me- ((((((((((hugs))))))))))Sandhya
    your wishes for the two of us are always so heartfelt:) they make me smile:)

    I was warned many times to be careful – not to publish the photograph of the family members or mine, not to write too much about personal things (I have done this one more often…now everyone must be knowing me very well!) etc.etc. I don’t think much about the repercussions when I talk often but brood later for my blunders!
    me- its okay:) we will take care of anyone who dares to trouble you ๐Ÿ˜€ but yes! I feel that I do know your family (including the furry lil creatures) through your words on your blog:)

    I like some people here and feel like coming closer to them but….don’t know, I have got my limitations, am not a very confident person. Will take my own time, I feel.
    me- its not a compulsion Sandhya:) go with what your heart says… you are already loved by so many here:) I remember Dhiren’s words for you somewhere:) one of the gentlest bloggers around:) true:)

    I am happy to see you both coming closer and closer and I wish you both to be like this even after not only 60 years, 100 years, Indyeah and Solilo! This is a very rare friendship, that too after the school and college years! God bless you two!
    me- awwww muah and ((((((((((((((warm hugs for that)))))))))))))) ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a lovely lovely post Indy … its so nice to see a relationship like this blossom .. psst psst, the first post of urs that I read and a mention of Abhi maasi, I thot that u both r sisters by blood relation .. it always used to remind me of my sister and I used to start missing her hopelessly ๐Ÿ˜‰
    me- you thought we were related back then? many thought the same:)…I remember your post on your sis:) loved it:)

    So glad to c such wonderful things in the virtual and yes, and its way beyond tht one now ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hv met some ppl like that too and totally treasure the bond we hv .. I cn go on talking to them abt anything and everything for hours together, across continents and nt be scared of being shooed away ๐Ÿ˜› Its a beautiful life indeed ๐Ÿ˜€
    me- ah!another beautiful story:) love reading this:)great to hear this Swaram((((hugs)))

  21. February 3, 2010 2:40 pm

    Well well… finally Sol’s last post got you back… !!!! I sheepishly missed out on her birthday !!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Seriously age is getting to me… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    you know i m trying to find something nasty to pull some legs… but I just cant… !!!! its simply too good… may friendships like this flower and flower.. !!!!!

    too good to add anything seriously at a loss of words !!!
    me-thanks Dhiren:) you are not pulling legs? AND you are accepting that you are getting old?? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ *wonders if Dhiren has fever*
    amen to that thought:) may we see more amazing friendships:)

  22. February 3, 2010 3:27 pm

    May your friendship last forever and ever. It is wonderful to read about the bond that the two of you share. More so, because you guys met in the blogworld. May this last forever and ever and you guys can tell your grandchildren all about your special friendship ๐Ÿ™‚

    me- thanks a lot Smitha:)and amen to that last line:)

    You know, I would have never thought, even just over a year ago that it is possible to meet people online and become friends. I was one of the few who never even posted a recognizable pic on social networking sites – mainly because I don’t want people, I don’t know, trying to be my friend.
    me- I completely get what you are saying…. I was and still am paranoid to an extent..

    In the blog world, I think the difference is that you get to know how a person thinks – you know. You meet the person through his ideas, through the way he/she writes – and I think that gives a fairly good perspective to who one is. I am lucky to have made some very good friends.

    Wishing both of you the very best!
    me-yep!that way the blogworld is much better than many social networking sites…. all said and done I still think that at times its a lil dicey though
    thanks for the sweet wishes :)(((((((hugs))))))))

  23. February 3, 2010 4:05 pm


    considering what my profession is… indy KRS, its risky business if you make me run out of words!!!!!!!

    me-((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))oye! you flatterer! ๐Ÿ˜€ muah!

    touchwood on this friendship! you both are absolutely adorable!

    and u know, i came over to your blog first time from a post Soli had done for you when u were away! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    ((((((((((((((((((sooper tight hugs))))))))))) to both you guys!
    me- thankieee ๐Ÿ™‚

    yeah, some friendships are special! i never believed in online friendships… but then, its not fair to call it that! some just cannot be explained….
    me- true very very true:) its just unfair to cal;l em online ones any longer:)

    a time when there was a discussion with once such “online” friend, and i told him, he seems more real to me than a lot of people who are physically around me…. and he knows me more than they do too!
    me- ๐Ÿ™‚ so you have such an amazing friend too:) yes sometimes the connection is so darn eerie:) *touchwood*


    amen to friendships that are worth being written about! and that leave the rest speechless!

    ((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))) KRS! u are an awesome friend to have! love u loads! muahs!
    me- ((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))KRS:) and lots of love kid:)

    What is real and what is virtual?…… I am just teasing you with the philosophical line that many do but few understand.

    It is a difficult question indeed. Coming out of a screen and getting face to face, particularly after you have already drawn a fairly comprehensive and positive picture, is a major step. Difficult to say what one should do. In some cases perhaps the comforting cyber picture should not be disturbed. But if the relationship takes wings of the sort that the one between you and Solilo has, then I suppose one should meet, to take it to another level.

    In some ways, the situation is like two people in love deciding to get married. There will be dimensions that you can never see when you meet, no matter how frequently. Living together 24/7 is something else.
    me- well explained Sir:)
    I sometimes believe in in some cases perhaps the comforting cyber picture should not be disturbed and ofcourse how we meet and whom we meet is according to our judgment in other cases…tough call at times

    Indy girl, Thanks for such wonderful birthday wishes. You called me on my birthday the first thing in the morning and I missed it but your beautiful wishes are still on my answering machine.
    me- awwwyou still have it?:) ((((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))))))))

    3:00 am friends literally. Hahaha We have shocked each other at some odd hours to just rant or share. I am fortunate to have some very close friends and glad that you are one of them.
    me- yeah now that I think about it… some mad conversations at mad hours ๐Ÿ˜€

    I had written it on Mishty’s too. True for virtual and real world. Sometimes you click with someone at the first go , sometimes it takes several attempts (may be some arguments too) and then you becomes best of pals, Sometimes how much ever you try, it just doesn’t happen. Something is amiss. Even the two sweetest people can’t find a common ground to like each other.
    me- absolutely true! Even the two sweetest people can’t find a common ground to like each other. yes! true…
    most of all I have seen in life that friendships are about trust,(the kind where you dont believe anyone no matter what till you sort out things with your friend yourself) , honesty( the kind that makes you say stuff even if it might hurt your friend for a moment or two coz in the end its for her/his own good) and respect:)and ofcourse lots of love:)

    The best thing I like about you is that, you and I started talking based on our posts. We never asked for each other personal info till we were really comfortable. I am wary of people who ask for so many details at the first go. I am not here to make virtual friendships. But when it happens, it feels wonderful.

    me- thats what I love best about you too:) we connected through our words like you said…and we never once asked for personal name, pics ..nothing! that made it so amazing in a sense! there was and still is so much of space we give each other… about people asking for too much info at first go! haha!tell me bout it!

    yes the purpose is not to make friends but once in a blue moon if it happens then one just smiles ๐Ÿ™‚ and feels blessed:)

    • February 6, 2010 12:09 am

      You spoke my mind again Soli. I am amazed and glad there is someone who thinks like me when it comes to making friends. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. February 4, 2010 6:20 am

    “Sometimes there are people whom I would LOVE to meet in real life. But there is one very strange reason that stops me. I hesitate about meeting some of those whom I respect and admire a lot because I am apprehensive that the meeting might shatter some illusions that I was carrying about those virtual friends. (and who knows meeting me might shatter their illusions too:))”

    I feel exactly the same. I don’t really crave to meet everyone in the real world. I like them as I know them in the virtual world. I have lots of good friends in the real world. It is nice to have some in the virtual world too. Why mix both?
    me- indeed! why mix both? in the end the two are separate.and very rarely does it happen that one finds someone who becomes part of the real world too..

    I mean a casual meeting here and there is okay. Don’t like to be pushed into it.
    me- yes..exactly same thoughts here.

    I had pen friends while growing up. Got so many useful info and shared so many letters. Never met then but knew a lot about them. I think sometimes this virtual world reminds me of that time. It is nice to discuss and debate and keep it at that level.
    me- arre! brought back so many memories for me too:) making pen friends was such an amazing experience

    It is nice to discuss and debate and keep it at that level. yup! absolutely agree!

    The best thing about our friendship is also that. We never insist that oh! we have to meet or oh! we have to call each other. No! we don’t plan things and everything is at ease.
    me- plans and us? are you kidding me? ๐Ÿ˜€

    “It’s the ones you can call up at 4:00 a.m. that really matter.”~ Marlene Dietrich.

    And this quote also hold true for us.

    “A true friend is someone who is there for you when she’d rather be anywhere else”. ~ Len Wein
    me- I LOVE both the quotes:) so, so true:) (((((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))))))

    • February 5, 2010 9:31 am

      As u have said above, yes we are quite similar in thinking ๐Ÿ™‚ You know I have said this more than once to many people, I am happy with the kind of interaction I have virtually & that’s quite enough for me. I have enough friends in my life at present and am happy the way am handling them right now, why to complicate things by getting close to many people and get stuck in handling them?

  27. February 4, 2010 6:20 am

    I too did not think one was going to meet a whole lot of wonderful and real people when one blogged. It’s amazing how blogging friends meet and talk and get along instantly.
    me- yep! blogging is this whole new wonderful world ๐Ÿ™‚ I too never thought it would be like this!
    Best wishes to the two of you ๐Ÿ™‚ I liked what Smitha said, may you tell your grand children about this friendship. Dhiren and Crafty, Smita and Vimmuuu are also great friends who have met while blogging … I enjoy reading about the baby showers that groups of mommy bloggers organise too ๐Ÿ™‚ And then there are bloggers’ meets – and always one hears about how easily the conversation flows… no uncomfortable silences!
    me- thanks IHM ๐Ÿ™‚ *amen*
    yes so many friendships in the blogworld itself:) such strong ones too! they are so cute to watch and read about:)

    (((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))to the most special blogger of all:) muah! lots and lots of love:)

  28. February 4, 2010 10:41 am

    soli and indy to be re-christened as jai and viru! ๐Ÿ™‚ so happy u guys found each other, sisters from the last birth that u two are…(im telling u , u are… the way u bond, u HV to be! )
    peanut calls u maasi? cho chweet.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    me- Jai And Viru ? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ me likey ๐Ÿ˜€ yep! must have been sisters coz both of us dont have sisters in this one:) thanks a lot for the sweet words Mandy((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))
    totally agree with u on the fear of finding bloggers weirdos in real life.. i used to be PETRIFIED by this idea when i began blogging… u really cant tell who the person is in real life just by gauging what they write.. u can glean a little about them from the blog, but wats beneath the surface, who is to know??!i thot ppl who did bloggers meet were nutty… but now that i’ve been around for 2 yrs or so.. im slightly more comfortable with the idea of turning bloggers into friends… thats not to say im careless about who i connect with now.. im still careful but more willing to take the risk! ๐Ÿ™‚
    me-u really cant tell who the person is in real life just by gauging what they write.. u can glean a little about them from the blog, but wats beneath the surface, who is to know?? yep! I used to and still think like this in some cases…I mean how does one decide? its darn tough to know…

    yeah me too.. a lil more comfy with the idea now..though still get spooked like hell at times…
    still careful but more willing to take the risk that about describes it perfectly! ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS: will i ever be able to do long posts and comments like u, indy??
    me- err ummm *Indy looks at nicey nice words that Mandy has written above*
    *still wondering if Mandy’s question is sincere*
    *catches sight of Mandy’s evil grin :mrgreen:*

    such a sweet post indy..this is the best way to which bday..I m sure sols must be too happy to read this ๐Ÿ™‚
    Its tough to trust ppl you meet on orkut/facebook but blogging is got to know person through their idea and beliefs in detail…You know a lot abt person through his posts..
    i havnet met any blogger till now..but wouldnt mind meeting if i get a chance…
    No blogger meet in gurgaon ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    me- (((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))Rashmi:)
    yes blogging sure is different from other social networking sites but sometimes blogging too gives me the same vibes..
    it happens rarely but it happens.. arre!you havent met any bloggers?I thought you had!
    hows your lil princess?:) muahs for her:)

  30. February 4, 2010 8:01 pm

    I have many friends with whom I can that..that’s the best thing about friendship isn’t it? You can be yourself and also know that the other person respects you/loves you/admires you for that reason.
    me- you can be yourself ..thats the key to any great relationship:)

    Online friends are special, you know their though/feelings before you know them. You don’t judge them by their face/looks but by what they make of themselves….have met a few of them and yes we get along fine…

    I would love to meet you among others…something special about you lady ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- aww thanks Vichu:) warm wishes for you kid!:)

  31. February 4, 2010 10:22 pm

    me- yep! I am going to get diabetes soon if things on on like this ๐Ÿ˜€

    Solilio should be thanking PM, no? After effects of a dreamy meeting, everything looks beautiful – even sol! ๐Ÿ˜†

    It’s such a beautiful day in Dubai today. But I had a lousy morning. And follow that up with a slow day at work. And thoughts of a really boring day lined up……

    Then I read this post. And I smile to myself. (mainly coz I have no one else to smile to right now!)

    The day just got better ๐Ÿ™‚

    May the two of you always call each other at odd hours ๐Ÿ™‚ So that the rest of us can sleep in peace! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    me- well it made you smile , so thats one good thing ๐Ÿ˜›

    Hi, my name is malavika.
    I here thought that you were all real-life friends (b’coz of the way you were so free with them) and so kept quiet in spite of following you, lest I be considered an intruder. attracted to your blog due to the quotations yonder and your funny yet worldly-wise, vivid & informative style of writing. also, being an introvert, I could learn from you how to talk with friends and also feel vicariously the warmth that you share. this is to say that you are an absolutely amazing person…..thank you!
    With Love, retreating…
    me-(hugs)welcome here Malavika:)
    thank you for your words .
    consider yourself part of this circle too now:) and no! dont retreat, just join in! ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. February 6, 2010 1:51 am

    Very heartwarming post Grandma ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ very very sweet one….

    God bless your friendship till the end of your lives… ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    I myself never thought I could make good friends over online…. but now I am not afraid of online at all… I don’t trust Orkut or FB or any social networking sites… I just believe blogging…

    Its just like real world… you will find a genuine one and also some bad ones…. the decision is ours whether we can continue as friend or not…
    me- thanks a lot Kanagu:) blogging is better than other social networking sites for sure ๐Ÿ™‚
    and yes!absolutely our decision at the end of the day…depends on so many factors I suppose…

  38. February 6, 2010 10:55 pm

    A really lovely post … that only substantiated what every one who came to your blog, and read the comments on a regualar basis, already knew about. It is really good to find a friend in the blogworld; your’s and Solilo’s friendship always seemed special. Coming to your questions……

    I love this interaction in the virtual world as it gives one a new perspective to his inner thoughts – it helps one grow, if the comments are genuine – and generally they are, I believe. Met quite a few people whose thoughts are treasured… if the occasion arises would love to meet them too.
    me- thank you so much Sir.
    …wishing you many more such treasured friendships sir..hope you get to meet all those whom you want to:)

  43. February 9, 2010 11:05 am

    Such a sweet post Indy. Here’s to to both you and Soli and your friendship. Like someone mentioned, you both will probably be talking of your friendship to your respective grandchildren! ๐Ÿ™‚
    me-thank you so very much Shail:)

    In answer to your question, I have been very lucky to find a friend in the virtual world and yes its a most cherished and valued friendship; never for a moment have I felt I haven’t known him for real. I have blogged about it too. And meeting him finally didn’t give me any reason to change my opinion.
    me- ah!thats so good to hear:),so

    Other than that I have met a lot of my blogger friends over the last couple of years in the capacity of just that, ‘blogger friends’ and I have no qualms about meeting more. Besides isn’t meeting anyone from virtual blogging world like meeting strangers at functions/trains/airports and forming friendships?? Of course, the blogs (and comments) do give an indication about people and all you have to know is to look between the lines.
    me- sometimes some strangers have too many expectations from us Shail….it kind of intrudes on one’s private space at times..asking for personal info constantly gets on my nerves at times..and because these strangers are our good friends in the virtual world one doesn’t know how to respond
    the how to look between the lines is what I have started doing of late:)

    Generally people disbelieve the online persona projected. I maintain that those who do so are themselves not projecting their true self. Isn’t that why they disbelieve another?? I say this because a few of those who met me were surprised that I was the same in ‘real’ life as I am online. Like I always say, I don’t know to be anyone other than myself. ๐Ÿ™‚
    One lady blogger I met told me she was surprised to note I was cheerful, she expected to find a ‘slightly hardened cynic’ after reading my posts. ROTFLOL. Well that’s life for you. The tongue in cheek humor (yes I admit sometimes sarcastic, but still humor) for her translated to ‘cynical’ and ‘jaded’ outlook!!!!!!
    me- I dont know Shail….sometimes the disbelief comes about because of something said/written by another at a specific moment and it makes you pause and re think.. I kind of know instinctively who is just the same in the real world as in the virtual one and who is not..:) I know you would be the very same ๐Ÿ™‚

    Among all those I have met so far I regret only that one meeting. Right after meeting me, the lady wrote a very flattering blog ….about my perfectly coiffured hair, my manicured nails and my perfect dress sense ….blah blah and that she had looked like something that the cat had dragged in beside me. Well, it could be true of course but only thing it wasn’t. I am nothing like what she projected but quite a simple homely person who on that day had rushed to meet her soon after bath, hair still wet. As for manicure, no I don’t either and I wear whatever catches my fancy. I am the last person to wear matching accessories or such as I simply can’t be bothered. Can you believe, I have been wearing the same old earrings for the past 27 years!!! As for her she is one of the fashion conscious divas and unlike me lives a more high society life. Her blog conveyed a very wrong picture of me to other friends online and people took my protests as modesty on my part. The whole episode made me feel helpless and angry. One likes to be appreciated but flattery is something I hate.
    me- ah!flattery!very few can see through it Shail…….I do inspite of all the smilies I give …
    maybe, just maybe she did see you like that…(its a possibility no? ๐Ÿ™‚ but yeah I get what you are trying to say and yes it would make me irritated too..

    Ohhh, its a long comment! Anyway, here’s to you and Soli! ๐Ÿ™‚ And belated birthday wishes to you Soli.
    me-liked the comment:) another viewpoint this..and an interesting one at that…flattery..ah! ๐Ÿ˜€
    thank you on Soli’s behalf ๐Ÿ™‚ and thank you:)

  44. February 9, 2010 9:16 pm

    that was such a lovely post…. sigh you really have a wonderful friend… to share your feelings and thoughts…
    I cannot feel through your words how much you two care for each other…
    cheers to friendship ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- welcome here ๐Ÿ™‚
    thank you so much for your words:)

  45. February 10, 2010 12:10 am

    Indygurl… what a sweet one, and yes here’s to more lovely lovely years of friendship and sisterhood to you and Sol ๐Ÿ™‚ Peas in a pod again, na? Much closer I think!
    me- Ushus!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ you are here! muahhh! ๐Ÿ™‚
    there is one other special , very special bond too that I have Ushus:) with someone who is sunshine:)

    Sorry for having missed out on this and so many others, but even though I did not have a PM to keep me entertained, ๐Ÿ˜† , I wasnt online much, and that is that!!! ๐Ÿ˜›
    me- ๐Ÿ˜† *cough* PM? PM who? ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜›
    never sorry..never that..anytime that I see you is good enough for your Meg:)

    As far as meeting those I have read from, or met in the virtual world, there is practically no one, except once, and that, because of my paranoia, hehehe, turned out to be something I shoudl have not done, since it spoiled the warmth we had shared online… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Well, lessons in life, merciless ones, sadly.
    me- ah!ah! Ushus all your words here are mine too:) I knwo just what you mean:)

    So now, all that is on hold, though I know myself to be me, and most often expect other too, to be, but am, contrarily prepared that they are not!!
    me- tell me bout it ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wish I could share the confidence that Shail exudes, but somehow I find myself rather at a loss to deal with the virtual reality, merging with the real reality :P! Just another coward I guess…. ๐Ÿ™‚ One who is not apologetic about it though ๐Ÿ™‚ !!! Lol!
    me- me too UShus! very apprehensive! each meeting takes a lot of thinking on my part..and so in the end I have met two by accident(loved meeting them) and one on my own who is a sweetheart …apprehensive about any more..
    and for certain close ones..meeting em is a given! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is the resonances that one feels sometimes, that decides for us, isnt it? Most times that can never, but never, lie to your instinct, is what I feel. However, taking up oneself on those gut feelings is another issue. I have never been able to take up many I know ๐Ÿ™‚ I would like to, but I think it is a case of not want to disappoint , more than being disappointed ๐Ÿ™‚ :)!!!

    me-It is the resonances that one feels sometimes, that decides for us, isnt it? yes and yes Ushus!:) my words too all of these:) both here:) not wanting to disappoint and not getting disappointed as well !lol!

    But yes, there are a few I know I would love to meet… and I shall leave it there ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love you too, Meggie ๐Ÿ™‚ (((Hugs)))
    me- love you lots:) and though I say it all the time, there are only two whom I love like anything here:)
    your Indygurl/Meg/Abhi is happy:) ((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))

    • February 12, 2010 1:27 pm

      Ushus, not even one day passes when Indy and I don’t talk about you. You are the bestest and always will be. {{Hugs}}

      I share the same thoughts that you have. I have wonderful real life friends and virtual friends too. Why mix them? I would like to keep it that way and if a meet has to happen then it will just like good friendships. I don’t want to work towards it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Awww///u guys are so lucky to have hit it off! I too would have loved to be as close to a virtual friend and the closest I have been here is to Nancy…she is the one who when I don’t blog for long, gently nidges me and even then when I don’t she gives me a real push…and not in very kind words…
    She has numerous friends but for me, she is the special friend, I have had here! I don’t spend as much committed time here and that could be one reason. My sincerity to this world is in variations…sometimes in splurges out, sometimes there is a lack….
    Wishing u two friends many many years of togetherness!

    me-((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))loved reading your anniversary post:) Happy Anniversary once again Sakshi ๐Ÿ™‚ muah!:)

    I can say only one thing “Anyone who has Sols by her side for a friend is lucky”. There is something about Sols (definitely not that green glass of god knows what) that long you for more. You know just out of the blue one day Sols called me Sakshu which was the name by which I was called by one of my dearest best friend who I miss so very much.
    me- yes, tell me about it ๐Ÿ™‚ ..there is something about her….hard to explain na?..:) she calls her friends by the cutest nicknames ever ๐Ÿ˜€

    God bless you both and all those kind souls in the virtual world who puts up with my comments :mrgreen:
    me- thank you ๐Ÿ˜€ I love your mad comments:D

    Ps: Any new jokes from that PJ guru you call PM?
    me- *sigh* you tired of living kya?
    take the jokes 24/7 and you will know ๐Ÿ˜€
    I pull his leg but I love the PJ’s nevertheless…
    Crafty KRS will agree with me ๐Ÿ˜‰ she loves the PJ’s of a certain person too ๐Ÿ˜€

    toh prastut hai PJ

    COURTESY Crafty ๐Ÿ˜€ who gave me ammo to use against PM :mrgreen:

    When the Don touched his “Khokha” peti, that Raabert had just delivered, he slapped Robert and told him, “Tune isse kholne ki himmat kaise ki?”
    Robert: “Par Boss! aapko kaise pata chala ki maine yeh khola hai?!”
    Don: “Kyunki yeh thanda hai….aur Thanda Matlab Khokha Khola”

    Q: What breed is the Don’s pet dog?
    A: Khokha Spaniel!!!!

    Once James Bond borrowed 5 crores from Bank of India. He was to return it withing one year. But when he comes back to return it, he pays back only 2.5 crores.
    Bank Official: Mr. Bond, Sir! This is only 2.5 crores!
    Bond: Dhai Another Day!
