I started college a week late from most of my fellow batch mates, back in 2013. And the first memory I have is that of my college bus where I met this chubby, cute girl, with the most captivating smile. Later as the day progressed I figured out she was my classmate but she already had a group of friends, quite a group right there and I were still a newbie, trying to maneuver my through this new place!
Days passed and I never realized how this chubby girl had transformed from my bus-mate to my classmate to further being my first friend at the college!
And since then, it has been one hell of a journey that I would never want to relive in any other way! My best friend and I, we are no more friends, we transmuted into being sisters long back!
Today, I dedicate this piece of my writing to the one and only, the ultimate and the irreplaceable, Neha!
She has been the by far the most supportive person I've ever come across. No matter what I do, where I go and who I become, I know this person will always stand by my side.
I started my college with her being a stranger and I ended with her being the most important part of my college life.
I am very bad at expressing my feelings and emotions verbally, but this girl understood every unsaid word of my heart and mind. I never had to tell her if I were sad or happy or depressed or lonely, she just understood it!
She has been my guiding light through the thick and thin, even when I have been mean to her, she never left my side.
Together, we both have done all sorts of crazzzzy and weird adventures, some of which I can't really mention here, but each of those memories closest to my heart, have her in the frame too!
From fresher's in first year to farewell in the fourth, I'm proud to mention it that there have been n number of people for whom we've set some serious friendship goals and benchmarks, as they've come forward and told us!
How days, months and even years feel less when we both start talking because it isn't that we can't keep things from each other, we choose not to. The smallest details of my life are known to this super girl! She is my secret keeper, forever!
Honestly, my immunity system sucks. I have a tendency of falling ill, every now and then. From viral infections to puking to fainting, she's seen it all and taken care of me better than my own sister! And I'll always be thankful to her for that and hope that she'll continue doing it!
It'll be a serious understatement if I say she's my friend, she transformed into my sister a couple of years back!
As time passed we didn't really realize how close we'd come. Our families are the best of friends, in fact, she pampers my younger sister much more than I ever have or ever will and I've always borrowed her sister's best clothes!
Though we might be pretty different and our choices may vary but as they say,"opposites attract", don't they? She is in all literal senses my other half, probably the half I was looking for!
I run out of words when I try to explain what has she done for me! From putting my proxies to picking me up from my home when I didn't know how to drive, giving me the best birthday gifts to pampering me with my favorite foods after a fight, she has been the best!
For anything and everything, I know whom do I have to go to! My every life decision has been taken under her knowledge and agreement because I know, she knows me more than I know myself!
We might not share the same blood but whatever your soul is made of, mine is definitely made of the same. She has given me so much unfeigned love over the years (probably more than an actual boyfriend could give! :P) that I'll forever be indebted to her for that!
Lastly, I'd just like to tell you that this world is a chaotic place but equally beautiful. Remember, nobody is worth your tears but you, there are going to be times when your world will come crashing down and it'll all seem impossible, that day, turn back and read this letter, I hope it'll make you feel better. On another note, you are amazing the way you are, do not change for anybody or because of what others say! There are people who love you for the chubby, funny little girl who loves doughnuts!
Love & Luck
Your best friend
