Friends

So I went to Bangalore and met my old friend- the one with whom I lived in the hostel in the beginning of my career. We have literally lived with each other's struggles (with weight and otherwise), disappointments, relationship, hopes, done random shopping & eating trips... she was the one who would ask me how my day was when I came back from work. It was her I would turn to when I wanted someone to pray for me, rather do some positive thinking exercise for me be it an important project or a bonus or whatever.
We got married within a space of a week and therefore never attended each other's wedding.
I called her 5 days after my c-sec to find out if I was the only one facing difficulties walking after a c-sec as everyone else told me they were zooming around right from the day after the c-sec.
I called her to rant my heart out during the PPD phase.
We lost touch for a while and reconnected recently and just started from where we had left- laughing, ranting, discussing husbands, siblings, common friends, and the now all important kids.
And we finally met after a gap of 5 years. I just walked in to her house- (gasp) empty handed-hugged each other, commented on each other's weight, plonked ourselves on her sofa, chatting away to our hearts' content.
Some things never change!

The amazing thing is you never feel you haven't met for so long! I recently got a call from a friend, I haven't heard from since 1997. Felt the same way :))
