11 years hence...Internet made us meet again..!!!

It was a routine boys talk going on between me and my bst buddy Amit..We were discussing about d upcoming fashion show in abhay prashal by sdps woman clg and figuring out some means to get d passes..Amit was in renaissance clg and was telling me abt d fun he had in his fresher's party..

Suddenly I came up wid an idea of organizing a school get together party..
"lets invite all our friends who were wid us till 4th" ,I tld amit..
amit was amazed as it had been 11 years down d line and we had no clue where most of our childhood friends were..

I was not hearing as I was lost in my own world..remembering those past we used to go to school by riskshaw..all fun we had..suddenly my sail through d memories came to a was her..Kratika..I becme nostalgic..all memories started pouring in at which we played together..cycling in d evening and how can I forget those samll fights we had..I was trying to remember d incident when I was fighting wid her for a corner seat and a slap..!!!
I was ready to retaliate but saw d beautiful face of Kratika covered wid hands..trying to say, plzz dont hit m..

I got a blow on my back but this time it was amit..I came back to reality and asked amit to contact those who were in town from our class 4th batch..After bidding him good bye I came back home, took out my cell and started searching for Kratika on internet..d best means was social networking...I only knew that she left for ujjain after completing her 4th standard..The year was 2008 and at that time there was no Facebook so it was really a tough job to search her.

With the little information I had , I began searching for all Kratika's living in ujjain on orkut as it was the most popular social networking site at that time...finally after 4 hrs of searching I found my gal..her profile had a pic of rani mukherji..there were only some 500 scraps which showed that she was not an orkut freak..more precisely orkut addict..

Would she remember me???
will she accept my friendship request?? what would I say her??
My mind was filled wid lots of similar thoughts..
Finally I decided to tell her how much I had missed her after she left..her departure was like a shock to me..there was no1 left to play,fight and most importantly share my immature thoughts..

"ur kidding man..u found her?? really..!!!", enquired amit , as he was astonished to hear about Kratika from me.."I think I was in love dude..childhood love..u know" I told amit
and also about all thoughts that kept on surging in my mind all d day before..

"Are u serious..?? do u still love her..?? it has been 11 years and u guys havn't even seen each others face m she wont even remember u.." ,amit assured me, as if he was some fortuneteller.

I dont knew anything, I just wanna talk to her..share all that i have in my mind..I think it might be too late..she would have a bf..or on d worst side she wont even remember I will give it a try..saying this to amit I left, wid a hope of getting my friendship request been accepted..

I  logged on to orkut widout wasting a single minute and quickly searched d list of friend requests I had sent. To my amazement Kratika's name was not meant that she had accpetd d request..yes!! she still remembers m..
I was on cloud 9..

In a blink of an eye she came online and pinged me..I had goose bumps all over my body..she had a long list of questions waiting for did u found me after so long..??
where u had been so many years..?? and d list was endless..

We started chating regularly..Kratika was in jaipur and was doing engineering..
she had few frnds there as most of her best buddies were in ujjain...I was a bit disappointed not to find my name in her bst buddies list, but appeased myself by thinking about 11 long years we have remained apart..
I was really happy to find that she remembered all d fun and fights which we had together specially d slap 1..she laughed aloud on remembering that incident but then apologized d next minute for hitting me that hard..:)

As time passed we became gud frnds again..we used to chat for minimum 2-3 hrs and had started enjoying each othrs company..I felt that this was d right time to tell her what all I felt and how much I missed her..

Next day as I logged in to orkut, I was amazed to find her already there as most of the times it was me who came first.. Anyways I pinged her..after a little conversation of hi..hellos and wassp, she became silent and stopped responding..I felt that there was something wrong with her...
"R u upset", I asked her..Is everythng f99 at home ??..

well there was no response but suddenly my cell started was Kratika.
She was crying like hell..I tried to appease her and asked her what d matter was??
than came d ans which I never expected..she had a serious quarrel with her Bf today...Down came d tears from my eyes..Why didn't she tell me abt her bf before..?? I had started liking her again..but all in vain..

Ankit..Ankit..!!!..are u there called a soft was of Kratika..I came back to my senses and pretended as if nothing has happened to me...I started consoling her and ensured her that everything will be f99..

Well I couldn't sleep d whole night..the word bf was going round and round in my mind..should I tell her the truth..confess my liking for her..but what if she says would she feel after listening all this..what if she even dont wanna remain friends wid me..all scary thoughts started coming to my mind..finally I decided not to confess anything, but to help her by all means I can and always remain friends wid her..

Kratika was a happy gal now..she had reconciled wid her bf..
"It is all bcz of  those advice and suggestions that you used to give me on our long chats,
 Ur my best buddy Ankit", she confirmed while we were chatting on GMAIL...

"It was a very small thing for my sweetest friend ever" ,I responded..

Slowly wid time I had learnt to keep myself away from all those feelings that I had for her..

Today both of us are into job and work for top IT companies of India..
Though we get less time for each other due to office pressure, work burden, mismatch of office timings but still we chat on gmail, like each other stuff on facebook and talk to each other on skype on weekends..

It is always fun to play games, download movies and videos, try different Apps and use the GPS to get directions to your favorite destinations on one go on internet, but when you get to meet your old school friends, 1st time chat with your crush , meet those childhood langotiya yaars, its really much more than than becomes your second home, a place where you can remain in contact with all your near and dear ones.


Today though internet has many pitfalls and loopholes but if we see the brighter side of it you will surely agree with me that,
It is all because of the power of Internet that I got my childhood's best friend back.
It is one of the most important means to communicate and has a very big part in helping us to keep our long distance Friendship intact and still remain the best of best pals..:)
