all my life,i've seen my mesho have just one best friend-debol jethu.
he suddenly passed away this morning because of a heart attack.though i have never seen my mesho get perturbed at anything but today,i can just imagine him letting go of a huge chunk of his life,which debol jethu took away with him.
i dont know if the concept of "best friends" exists today...i mean,you do have very good friends and then your boyfriend becomes the best friend.but do we really have the kind of friendship which traces its journey back to the playgrounds of school but still manages to remain the same,defying grey hair and wrinkled faces?
my sister (mesho's daughter) took the first flight to cal,because for her it's almost like losing her father.
i raced my imagination to say...50-60 years from now,would any of my friends' kids do that when i die?
scary thought.

i guess that how life is. transient characters walking in and out and how we keep shifting between the comfort of having a illusory permanence only to be disappointed time and time again

..and i really don't know about the friend bit. Its a different perspective i had almost forgotten. Its scary

Friendship like that is rare and I suppose that's what makes it even sweeter, because it is one of a kind. My thoughts go out to your mesho.

pure friendship is rare - as you said: the kind that has it's roots in school playgrounds and happy non-complicated 'buddiness' and not in mutual advantages to be gained (whether admitted or not).
we all are mostly surrounded my a plethora of 'good friends' but as to the number who will stand the test of decades? I really wish i didn't know the answer. ;)

I dunno,but some of my really good friends have actually been my friends for the last 17-18 years...its blody long,but I always think,we've gone thru such a long time....an entire lifetime must be a piece of cake....so whatever u say here in the last line,Ill keep my fingers crossed and be like maybe,you know,just maybe.....

:( ive seen 13 deaths since december 31st and it has pretty much turned me into a death-fearing psycho woman which previously i was not.
Im afraid of losing friends, papa, mummy, my two beautiful dogs....

Death is a part of life at the end of it and i hope that it wont be painful for anyone.

*hug*

What all our generation misses out on. Sigh. Luckily I can imagine myself having a best friend or two. Touch wood.
