Mohd Zuhaib: if i would run down my memory to the farthest i know then too i wouldn’t recollect who was my oldest friend if not Zuhaib. Therefore i have accepted it as a fact that he is my oldest buddy. Our friendship goes back to the days of halfpants and stutter. He is more or less like me except for the fact that he remains inactive coz he doesnt know what he wants . He more or less remains in a constant state of confusion.
If by any chance you people are wondering that i am clear about what i want then you got it again wrong. I am different to him because I dont act out shear laziness.
Rijuta Mishra: She was a brilliant student but she decided an entirely diiferent carrer than ours or what would have been a common yet an obvious choice.She went on to study in the nations top most university of Law.She followed her mind and taught me to dare to be original.Very easily she could have taken a beaten path but she is not a common girl to do such unchallenging thing.She is the bravest of us all.
I am told (though I dont believe it) that we used to fight with eachother as kids.Very reluctantly I have to say that our fight often reached to point of scratching each others faces. we called each other with all sort of funny names and still we are friends. Strange , Isn’t it !
Neharika Srivastava: Really a delight to have her as friend.She knew me inside out.Used to Judge me harshly but was really terse with her choice of words.To be eloquent was in her nature and knowledge runs in her veins in form of blood.
Soumya Srivastava: Her friendship with Ratika dates way back to school days when we were nothing but tiny tots, and Masha Allah they both did thier Bachelors and Masters together and by the grace of God they both are placed in the same company.A jubilient girl herself,Soumya teaches me to follow the pulse of the moment and enjoy to the fullest, and one more very important thing that never part with your old pals.
Ratika Rastogi: I hated her when i was a kid .She Used to Complain about my bad habit of inability to keep things secret ( one habit which has cost me dearly).I later learned on my way that had I been a little more alert to her complaints then ii would have been a happier man.Sorry Ratika,but I guess we cant have our days back but we can always learn from them.
Roshni Khan: First to get married amongst all my friends.Makes me jealous all the time because of that, but really a cool friend to have.She was very shy and a delicate kid and I haven’t seen her after that so her childhood image still linger in my memory.I really wished to have a sister like her when i was a child myself.I learned to realise my responsibilities towards my family from her.She has grown a lot since then and makes me think that i should be more serious and mature now.
Shahamat Mufti:Mufti Sahab is a wonderful kid….Nothing goes right for him and most of the time he takes it in his stride and laugh at his misfortunes and even fortunes….thats how he always keeps on finding new ways to get into fresh sets of troubles….
Sana Shahid: Pocket size bomb. Always has a cheerful smile on her face.
Yasha Anil: She once tried to jump off the window to go to her home to watch Maine Pyar Kiya which was being telecasted on TV on “jamghat”day.She behaved like a princess and was very much popular amongst her friend circle and she deserved to be.
We all felt very sentimental and mushy to hear about how she was beaten up at home by her mom for the little mistakes that she committed(i never understood that whether the stories she told had any truth or not) but she always was a flambouyant kid, doing what we could never do.Although a promising child yet she lost her way somewhere in the middle.I hope she is doing fine now where-ever she is. I learned to defy the odds from her.She can teach you how to handle peer pressure at any given day.Unfortunately she herself became an example of what excess pressure and harsh real world can do to a brilliant kid.
Mariyam Zaidi:A golden hair girl who was fond of cats.Her elder sister,Saher, inspired me a lot and I never saw her sad …she always kept a beaming smile on her face….a sure sign of social grace.Coming back to Mariyam,I will be totally frank and say that I dont quite remember her that well apart from few bits and pieces here and there.She was the center stage of lot of controversies and i felt sad for her being treated the way she was.
One more thing-Well , half of the class was mad about her and I belonged to the other half which was neutral.you have all the reasons to doubt me but still I would stick to my earlier statement.
Mariya Zaidi:and she said that I was a politician…leave this and listen to one important thing….she was the one who had a magnificent hand writing , better than mine and i envied that ,(for those who dont know me-I had a beautiful cursive writing style but not as good as mariya).Later on I looked upto her and tried to improve and write just as she does but failed miserably.
Apart from that she was a shy kid and hardly spoke anything and mind you, when she spoke she did with great grace and ease.She had a yellow school bag that had a watch on it…and that very bag was the our center of attraction for many days.
I wanted to learn how to maintain poise and a confident stature but couldn’t. Wish I could one day be half as cool , calm and composed as she was at that tender age. She once complained to me that I instrumented many fights between her friends to become the class monitor.An allegation to which i would promptly deny.Even if it were so then it would have been due to my foolishness cause i never want to have my friends fight b’coz of me.After all said and done I think very highly of Mariya but she thinks I was a politician….
Prashansa: The sweetest kid i knew in my childhod….we used to steal her lunch box and tease her and do all kind of experiments that came to our petty minds back then but she used to never give us an expression other than a gentle smile….wow she was great…simply awesome…i still remember her but have no account where she is …..
Azharuddin: Quite and shy boy …azhar was a sober lad who was always there to help me.Extermely down to A warm smile and great hospilatity is what you will get every time you visit him.He has a younger brother whom you can easily take as his clone-”Fakhar”.
Saleem Ali: Stylo, Smarty , Player….. the less i say, the better it is. Looks a bit reserve but he is the most cultured boy i know in Lucknow. Man of very few words but very respectable and respect giving man.
Anuja Srivastava: She was a brilliant dancer and she followed her dream till date.She has made her hobby her profession and i guess does she even get bored in her office.naah she enjoys what she does.
If i will go on mentioning her degrees then it would take one more page . She has done bachelors in 4 different fields and master in 2 when i wrote this page, cant be sure if she has enrolled anywhere else in the mean while.
Akshat Devashish : When he is not ill , he is one of the finest lad you will ever see , But the sad part is that he seldom fit and fine. hehehe
Inayat Ali: Best athelete i have ever seen.I remember him for his attitude and his dedication towards his goal.
