My Three Best Friends :)
From Left, Pooja Ameya and Neha..
She is a simple linear equation. What you see is what you get. She is the same, be it in Anger Love or against injustice. She was a math scholar in school, which has made her grow up with a rather innocent assumption that 2+2 is always 4. :) You can read her mind and sense what she is thinking accross the table. Fiercely protective about the people she loves, she turns into this tigress when someone offends her close buddies. Her feelings are not like tinkling silver or glittering gold, they are all iron ore; as strong and solid. She will cry with you when you are upset. You can see the Child in her when she is around her mum, the woman in her when she is around her Fiance, and the Man in her when she drives a car!! She is this triform yet immensely resolvable person you'd always like to be around!
She is the Diva. She could have been anything from an actress to a politician. Extremely charming, she has a severe sense of what is fair and unfair. She gets raging mad even at the hint of injustice and will not hesistate to discipline anyone including bus-conductors and rikshawalas. She loses herself in friendship a rare quality that people usually reserve for Love. She can be the MOST loyal friend you ever had. Amazingly patient about typing long messages she makes a point to have an opinion about everything. She has this special coffee-making ritual and can resurrect any "Hung-over" by her coffee. I think she can even think my thoughts so I am a bit wary when I think around her. She will never give up, somehow I always picture her standing on this cliff with her hair open and looking at the horizon. She is a free spirit.
Who will stand by you, sometimes scold you and at others laugh at you even when you are depressed. She is my alter-ego.
If we are the Reds and the Saffrons of the Palette, Neha would be the pastels..
Feminine and creative, I remember her painting coffee-mugs, t-shirts and walls even as a child. Crazy about cats ( we share this passion). You will never see her banging her fists in rage or walking out on you, furious and dishevelled. She'd probably be found sitting on a couch sobbing away to glory with a pack of tissues. She makes up for the Martian traits in the group.
A self confessed foodie ( and to our dismay with no effect on her waistline) she is the only one who has a "hearty meal" every time we go out. As we laugh out loud and get lost Neha stands safely apart and watches the fun. Cautious and sometimes calculative sometimes she entertains us by her eternal confusions. :)
I owe my happiness to them.
If we ever make a play, I guess I will write ( if they can afford me that is), Ameya will act, Neha will paint her face and Pooja will be our inhouse critic ( who would later prove to be more fastidious than the real ones)
