Do the people we meet everyday serve a specific purpose in life and then they depart. The people you meet at airports and have random conversation just because your flight is delayed. Has it ever occurred if you would ever meet them again? And if you did will they recognize you? Would they stay to fill in to be an important aspect in your life.
What meaning do those meetings have? Aren’t they all pointless selfish, maybe greedy aspect to fill in our boredom. Maybe yes maybe no. Some people you meet at random roads do stay in to be there for you forever and in turn change from random to specifically important.
I had met such a stranger on a wintery afternoon which was kind of hot because Gujarat never turns to be too cold. We never spoke to be precise, it was just exchange of eye contacts, both of us eagerly waiting to give a stupid test.
I did not know that this meeting would turn out to be my strongest friendship of a year and counting. The thought about why was that stranger out there agitated me I had this curiosity for the very first time to know if that stupid test and meeting served a purpose? But I try to kept my mind off and the very next day my life had turned a little darker with my medical condition. I was in trauma and yes my life changed that night.
That very day I got a request from the “so called future friend” I did not know what to do? Was it a sign from the universe( yes I believe in such stuff) and so I added a stranger and the conversation did grow. I thought that just like my other friends this conversation would last for couple of weeks and then people would grow out of it. But it did not happen with every step I was taking in my war of struggle with my illness my friend stood by me.
Guiding me, accepting me and caring for me. There were enough instances to prove that when i cried all alone and really wished someone to call, I only received that friend’s call out of coincidence and well this continues to be even true today. And out of all the friendships I have I want this to be the forever always.
And out of all the friendships i have i want this to be the forever always. well there are few people who enter as miracles and if they will stay in forever or not is something that fate decides. meetings and separation are all part of life. They come in and teach us some important lesson and then leave.
