As one moves into the work life, one realizes that the only true friends that they made were back in school and college. In the work life, there are very few people who become your best buddies and most often than not they are give and take relationships where people find solace when they have common topic to talk about. Chances are that once you move out of the organization, the friendship comes to an end unless kept alive.
What are the odds of five guys becoming close friends in a 250+ employees working in a single department in a 24/7 environment and that too for different process. The chances are very rare but it happened and I was one of them.
How did it happen, I don’t have a clue but I assume it has something to do with us bumping in now and then and then going out as a group. It started that way, one thing for sure and has continued since then. Even though we moved in different directions the friendship still remains strong.
So let me tell a few things about them:
Friend #!: He is the funny bone of the gang and the one who pulled the Threat SMS on me.
Friend #2: He is sarcasm at its best and practical. He chooses to play an underdog which baffles me.
Friend #3: If one hears someone talking about you, one can easily predict where it came from. He is also the one who would not commit until the last moment but still say yes.
Friend #4: He handles everything so calmly which surprises me. Because of him, I wore a kurta pyajama on a traditional day something that I had never done in my entire life. He also guided me to be at ease while dancing (I thought I had two left feet) and now I do an air guitar too.
Friend #5: This would be me. I am the event organizer, party planner, etc. These days I only plan and let others handle it
P.S: If you are wondering what prompted this post, well one of my buddies asked me the question on how we all came together and the only thing I could think of is "I have no idea......"
