sunken friendships

I spent a year in chennai .. my 6th class. I was new to the place and ofcourse ignorant of tamil. There were a few telugu people in the class but everyone talked in tamil .. I was the only guy who couldnt understand (along with another guy who was a complete north-indian). I made a very close friend then (a telugu guy living in chennai). Any holiday, he would either come over to my home or I would go to his and spend the entire day. A whole year, he was my only friend. The next year, I came to hyderabad. Kept in touch with him through post initially but as it inevitably happens, lost contact.

Cut to the present day. The guy has come to hyderabad for some internship kind of thing. He finds out my address and phone number with great difficulty. Calls me and we talk a bit. He asks me whether it is possible to meet, I reply in affirmative but in heart, I am really not so interested!! Am I not supposed to be dying to meet this old friend of mine? As about my other friends before coming to IIIT, I am generally interested in meeting only a miniscule number of them. Though I do remember, that when in school I was very good friends with many many of them.

I guess only the real close friendships live on ....

Some friendships might seem like the beginning and end of the world at times, but you just end up growing out of them...one just has to accept it :)
