I have been living in the city of Indore, Madhya Pradesh for the last four years. Made a lot of friends, traveled a lot of places and had lots of life changing experiences. I love this city because it’s not too big nor too small by the way I hate crowded places. The only problem I faced in this city is loneliness, especially during festivals… Diwali vacation is on and my hostel is almost vacant…… All my childhood friends are in different cities and since I am a kind of introvert person,it’s difficult for me to make friends. I do have a lot of acquaintances but calling them good friends will be wrong.
Looking back, I think moving out of my home town was one of the best decisions I have made. Life has taught me everything.. How to conduct myself in a new town, whom to trust, how to handle tough financial situations and most importantly, how to live alone… all by myself,without depending on others. And I think I have faired well in all of the above. The only grudge I have is being alone in my hostel. Sometimes it has it’s own benefits and some times it causes problems.
Facebook and Gmail does help but friendship isn’t about chatting for long hours it about having a feeling that there is someone who know you, more than yourself. After watching Harry Potter movies the only thing I thought about was friendship. My school principal used to say that “FRIENDS DON’T COMPETE WITH EACH OTHER, THEY COMPLETE EACH OTHER”.
when I was a kid I used to watch a cartoon series called “RECESS” it’s was about six friends in middle school. It was a delight watching them. Oh wow! just had an idea to watch it again on youtube! Great writing a blog has benefits too… see I can now forget about my problems and enjoy watching RECESS.
Will write about it soon!
