The way you measure it...

Before starting, i would like to express my immense joy and happiness for my dear cousin Abhinav Garg, who is going to be the second from our gen(After another beautiful cousin of mine, Himani Aggarwal) to get hitched. I feel so so happy!!! Just can't wait for the celebrations to begin. My heartiest congrats to you bro!!:)

Some of my friends often complain that i don't call them or text them very often. The further interpretation of my habit of not calling people frequently is my lack of concern towards them. Well, honestly speaking, i have never been a talkative person. Moreover, i somehow feel that it's not necessary to call a person every 4-5 days just to make him feel that you miss him and care for him. Hence, this idea of calling or texting people frequently has never really struck a chord with me. However, because of so many complaints, i have tried to change this habit of mine. Yet, the flaws remain...

Birthday is an important day of the year for everyone, probably the most important day. I remember once a very close friend of mine forgot to wish me on my birthday. It was only at night around 10 PM that he realised it. He called me and immediately began a cavalcade of apologies. I asked him to calm down and assured him that i was not at all angry. It really surprised him for none of his friends had spared him for forgetting their birthdays. I feel that no one forgets birthdays intentionally. At times it just slips out of our minds. At times, we are so preoccupied in our own lives and problems that we tend to forget these things. My dad often forgets his sister's birthday. In future, he might even forget to wish me on my birthday. But is it going to lessen his love for me?? No, never. Remembering the special days of the people who are close to us is indeed very important but it shouldn't be the only measure of love and concern...

Once, a friend of mine sent me a nice sms that said, "It's not important to share each and everything with your true friends. What's important is whatever you share should be true." There are certain incidents that are not important enough to be told or discussed. Yet, people express their displeasure about why they were not told about it. It happens with me as well. At times some of my friends crib about things like "you didn't tell me about this, that, him, her...", irrespective of whether it was of any importance or not. And again begins a procession of complaints...

My purpose of writing this post was to highlight the fact that at times people argue over petty things that are of null importance. According to me, a strong relation is one where people think beyond these things. Phone calls and messages are not the only way of expressing or measuring love. In fact, love need not be expressed at all....
