By Kiron Shenoy


For over half a century I stood by my belief that relatives are thrust upon you, whereas friends are those that we choose!

If you have been a gregarious, extrovertist and networking guy like me-you would have surely over 1000 people whom you could call your friend over such a long period of time. Yet by the time we reach the end of our youth, we stand with not over a few scores whom you could call a good friend. Maybe from that just about a dozen stand out as true & dear friends!

Post a procedural operation in mid-April, I had to recoup & relax. So-what better than spending quality & quantity time with some lovely friends with whom you have grown over these 45 odd years. I did just that and enjoyed those 7/8 days just chilling and getting nostalgic lovely doses of yesteryears.

More than the sun of Central India in April, I was basking in all the love and affection (& delicious food) that my terrific friends and their family showered on my wife and me. This platform of friendship is a great leveler and we had no comparative analysis or scores to settle. It was total fun & frolic!

We all realized that a lot of water has flown under the bridge and we all have our idiosyncrasies & nuances but the bonhomie and camaraderie was a class apart.

I have to admit that I recouped faster and surely must have added 10 years to my life in those 8 days. Amazing that a lot of people search all over for an elixir to a long & happy life, whereas it is just around you-in the form of friends!!

Long live our friendship and God bless all the friends of friends in this world!

Keep smiling, in spite of the sweltering heat, as the rains are just around the corner…
