My friend Kiran - 'One Picture From My Photo Album'
As soon as I read about the contest, immediately I sat on shaking my head of any such memory or moment of click ( yeah definitely!! the old way not the digital way;)) that still brings a smile on my face when I look at it. Well, to write this piece it meant shaking old albums and photographs tool :))
To my utter happiness there were many from my growing up days. But this snap in particular brings a smile on my face 'coz not only it reminds me of the fun that I had in that NCC Rock- Climbing camp but it has in it my very good friend Kiran.

Beautiful Surprise of life- We became good friends only when we met again after almost 14 years of this picture being taken. Today when I look at this picture and remember how I met her again,(and this time to become very good buddies) it still amazes me. To my surprise, we were in the same organisation working in different buildings and different departments. Since then we are best of buddies and we still laugh; make funny faces, interestingly mimic conversations & instances every time we share our thoughts on that trip.
Mind you! when this picture was taken we were complete strangers who were on a Rock Climbing trip to South India, with 10-12 more participants from Delhi. Excitement of this trip, individually, was the only bond we all shared. Otherwise we were all more than happy minding our own worlds. We didn't bother to stay in touch with each other after we resumed our lives back in Delhi. :) Till date, we wonder how we became best of buddies years later after we grew up more;)
