“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.”
~Gloria Naylor

Chapter 1: The Genesis
It was the first time we hugged each other. We broke the record of the highest opening partnership of our gully. Was that worth hugging? Well, we were 9 and cricket was our world. Our friendship, started in that moment, was flowing towards an endless shore. Many records were broken and many hugs were taken after that. Exchange of lunch boxes, prank calling the teachers, teasing one another in the name of girls and many more childish activities converted to rooftop night outs, facebook joint stalking, bunking of classes to hang out at pubs. Actions changed, friendship never did. May it be the backing up of one another when caught cheating in an exam or consoling one another when Sachin got out on 4 in the finals of the World Cup ’03, we were always together. 

Chapter 2: The Promise

It was the last day of our high school, a pause in the 8 years of our friendship. I got admission in an NIT and Arun opted for a local Engineering college. Something’s are going to be changed, but we made a promise that we would keep in touch and hang out in every semester break. One thing I was sure of was that I would never get a better friend than Arun and it won’t be much of a problem staying connected in this Internet era.
Little did we knew about the path awaiting us that would lead to the next part of our journey. We think some people are important and we make them a part of our lives. But in most of the cases end up being something else. There neither misunderstandings nor quarrels are the antagonists, contrary to what we think. It’s just that as we grow up, we also grow apart. We didn’t think of all these. We knew one thing: We made a promise and we are going to keep it!
