My Best Friend's Wedding

Don’t worry. This post is definitely not a review of the movie with the same title as it. Not even close. It is about my best friend’s wedding. My friend and I have known each other for more than 9 years now, 5 of which we spent together during our school days, and 4 of it in different colleges, but managed to meet up now and then.

She got married on the 2nd of September, 2009. Her marriage was in the hometown village of hers, to the far south of Tamil Nadu. I could not go so far and attend it. And her wedding reception was in Singapore (where she lives right now), I couldn’t attend that either.

Ever since, I had a weird feeling every time I thought of her; for some reason, I felt a tinge of sadness. I was trying to comprehend why I felt that way.I couldn’t help but wonder about a lot of ‘whats’. What if she changes? What if she doesn’t keep in touch? What if she forgets me? What made me feel so lost is that I often wonder if things will ever be the same between us. And my worst fear, what if I never see her again, though I believe that it will not be so.

We do get in touch from time to time, but definitely not like before. I pray to God that he blesses her with every happiness. I know that I will miss her. But, no matter what happens, I know this- nothing can take away the rocking times we had as friends. And will my fears ever come true? Only time can tell.


  1. Its always gud to have close friends
    and it seems u r blessed to have one for urself
    things changes but memories remain in our mind
    even the ones you think you dont remember, waiting for something to trigger it
    it maybe a visit to a place you hav been wid ur friend
    overall its always gud to be loved and lost than
    never being loved
    so this is part of the life
    hang on, u might earn some more too
    btw u dint tell her name here :P

  2. the tht i like here is tht u have not mentioned ur frds name !! it seems to be like only few ppl can understand .. those u know u better .... again u could have added some description abt her so tht even if ur frd reads this she shd be able guess who !!! rite

  3. BTW None can be in all the parts of anyone's life
    knowing a person doesnt mean knowing that you know a person's history or biography
    the above comment was kinda offending
    pls think b4 u type
