Never say goodbye

Its 11:05 AM ,an hour since I reached office & I'm yet to start my work for the day. I've been checking my personal mails..checking my official mails.. scraps..and blogging ...& having my morning chats with friends..

I take a look at my left hand side & realize our missing friend...yesterday was his last working day. We gifted some goodies & had a cake cutting ceremony..its a pity that the cake never went into anyone's mouth.I had a good chocolate cream facial and cream hair massage!!
Yesterday's events kept me thinking about my last working days. Last working day in my previous company, last working day in college,last working in school. Wow what great difference over time!!

Last days in school always seem to be the toughest of all. You get autographs from teachers & friends.You rush to be the first one to get autograph from the popular & favorite miss. We had this culture of spilling ink over your school uniforms on the last exam.It used to be one of the best.

Speaking of fun,I remember throwing water balloons from the top floor to the girls sitting on the ground floor in hostel and we used to time it when the power goes off :-D!! Incidentally,my last day in hostel turned out to be very boring as our department exams were the last.

I've lost contact with many people. Its strange that we don't even know the whereabouts of few people with whom we spent four years of college/hostel life.
But thanks to Orkut I've regained so many buddies starting from school days.

I intend to be in touch with all my friends .. a small mail,message,scrap.. whatever ways.. I'm able to.
And now its time for work :-)

Its absolutely wonderful to be in touch with PAST,and in particular the school & collegemates.Having passed out some 3 and a Half decades back,I am touch with my collegemates & we meet fairly regularly too..There is so much of laughter recollecting the good old days & of course the last day in college & hostel is one of them

Despite the quick swirl of days, it's the memories that define and give shape to life. Last days of all endeavors can just not be forgotten !

I know its bad to see people go but. be happy that they are going to better place (if that person is not given a pink slip)

and yeah its great to meet friends from different part of life once more. I have met some of my school seniors on orkut and stuffs like that.

First thing first, you are not honest in saying you didnot start the work. Your work started when you started checking PERSONAL mails, blog etc etc.. and with that only all your official work ended.. :P

and yeah, about remembering missing one? Worst part is if you try contacting someone, they don't have ample time to talk freely. And will hear a cliche answer...PASSING TIME NOTHING NEW IN LIFE. Sigh!!!
