If you should die before me, ask if you could bring a friend

Friendship with Abaasanmar had come a long way since its accidental inception in 2002 by Arun & Me. Many came, many left and i am glad that they did. I am happy about those who are left, cos you guys are the best.
It had been a wonderful time all these years... Just went through some of the old pictures, all those fun moments we had, all those dumb things we did... The nights we roamed around, the Kaakka Biriyanis and Samu's idlies we've had . Silly fights over half boils and omlettes, gosh how i wish i could go back in time back there again.
Well we dint have much, but then again we had each other and that, i guess was the best thing. Maybe we didn't realize its full extend back then but it gives so much happiness to just close the eyes, sit back and rewind the tape back to that time when time was not a luxury but a commodity in abundance with us.
I am happy that we still get time or rather we make time to meet up every time we get back home and infact i am surprised how all of our families had come to accept it as a part of the regular life. Maybe it was this time i realized how much strong we had become as friends. Out of 4 days i had been in India 2 and half days had been with u guys and my parents who usually cribs about me not being at home was fine with it. They didn't even notice it i guess. I bet it is the same at Saji's place too.
Infact i have noticed how much i lean on to our relationship off late, when i feel alone, lonely and depressed in a far of land where it's hard to find even a person whom u can talk to on the same wavelength. Though it is not often possible for us to be in touch with each other its funny how the knowledge of "they being there for me" helps in getting by those tough times when you wish that you were together to make life simpler and easier.
Funny that a non-sentimentalist guy like me thinking up all these things. Maybe age is catching up, who knows...

All i wish to say is to Thank God once again for giving me you guys as Friends.

"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is before you can meet again. And meeting again after a moment or a lifetime is certain for those who are friends."

Days of my Life...

Guess this is gonna be a continuing series of events, updates or what ever the heck i am thinking it to be that will document the small headways that i make in my research as a Geo-acoustic Research Engineer. Sounds kinda funky, but trust me it is more or less like any other research work, back breaking literature reviews and a whole lot of figuring out of what on earth is 'that' supposed to mean. Yes, with my back ground in applied geology and marine geology-geophysics it is quite a lot of work in order to get into the flow of things, but i guess that finally after a few months of flowing with the tide, i've at learned to hold against the flow. Now starts the slow and tedious job of slowly making headway against the flow. But i guess that's gonna take some time getting enough grip in order to fight against the flow, so it would be better i work up enough friction beneath my feet before i attempt that.
So from today onwards i believe i will be documenting all the small things that i read, understand, try working out and most of all the stupid/funny things that might be happening in the course of my day.

So much for the intro.... now me back to work...
