Zini, me & life in general

Your Friend….

Dear Zini,

You have a friend Β Y in Ahmedabad. Your friendship started when her mom brought the 5 months old Y out and 6 months old you too were out for breath of fresh air. You met for the first time then.. Her and your grandparents were neighbours.

You both would wake up at night, you both would scream loudly, you both fell ill at same time and you both looked so tiny!! Her mom (K auntie) and I would complain how you both were robing us of our sleep. Then you both grew a little and started crawling all over the place, literally!! So you and Y were seen crawling in the common area on our floor, while both the dadis kept a watchful eye on you. A lot of passer bys would think that you were twins!! You both looked alike!!

Then we shifted to Noida, but you remembered your friend and she remembered you!! A few months later Y visited us with her family at Noida and you both picked up from where you had left. You being generous and sharing your toys was a great sight!! Then we went to Ahmedabad and you both were hardly seen without each other!! Either Y was at our home or you were her place!! You shared toys, food, laugh and sometimes blows πŸ˜‰ But you loved each other.

When we came back, you made me call her. She went everyday to your grandparents place to search for you and ask them, “Zini kyare aavshe?” (When will Zini come?). When your dadi called us to tell that Y had a freak accident you were worried, you kept asking me when will she be alright.

Last time we visited Ahmedabad, you guys were inseparable. Crying to be with each other when dragged to sleep. Sharing her cycle and riding it turn by turn (sometimes together)!! Eating parathas and bhakharis!! Spilling water in the common area and Making painting using water!! Doing garba to the beat of “Nagade sang dhol baaje”!! Doing “Ringa ringa” and singing ABCD!!! You guys had a lot of fun..

I am writing it here, dear Zini, so that when you both grow up and may forget each other, you will still know that you had a very special friend whom you loved like a sister.

  1. Such strong friendship at this tender age.. must be a sight to watch them together! πŸ™‚ Loved this post TM πŸ™‚

  2. Wow I can see a special bond growing there πŸ™‚ And till the little girls are big enough to continue on their own its your responsibility T2M. I know how special the childhood bonds become once we grow up πŸ™‚ I have a friend since I was 2 years old and she was three, we still are inseparable when we are together. The distance, transfers, no internet days, no mobile days, marriage, nothing could deter us. And now our husbands are turning into good friends too.

  3. that’s cute.. very cute..

  4. What a lovely post. Long live this friendship. Hugs to Zini πŸ™‚

  5. Very cute post! Had stayed once at a friend’s place for a stopover break and she has two little girls, my kids became good friends with. They still ask about them, only one thing I feel bad about is we forgot to take any pics! I am currently using them as ‘role models’ to inspire my kids to accomplish some tasks:)

    • Oho!! Even i don’t have any pics of them together. But my papa, MIL and Y’s mom have their pics and videos playing and singing together…

  6. that is such a heart warming post… the friendship as kids that is simple pure innocent joy… and nothing else πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  7. When I read your last lines, it kind of made me go “awww”! These tiny little people, have such huge hearts, it is heart-warming to see there friendship and there involvement πŸ™‚

  9. Cheers to their friendship and may it live forever! I can understand how precious such friendships are. San has a friend like this one in Houston, and we’ve left her behind. I don’t want these two to forget each other and I just hope we meet soon so that they can resume from where they left! πŸ™‚

  10. […] course Zini and her best friend Y had a great time together… It was a repeat of last visit for them.. This time they also got to go for shopping together where they sat in the same trolley, […]
