Long time no see…
In the few hours that I am in Kolkata, I was lucky enough to spend half an hour with my classmate from fifth grade – Debasish Chakraborty. The last time I saw him was in 1986 when I ran into him outside a movie hall!! (Most people who know me closely enough are probably wondering what was I doing outside a movie hall 🙂 Fact is I have seen about six movies in some movie hall in my entire life. “Bhalobasa Bhalobasa” in Durgapur Cinema in 1986 was one of them!!
Well, he is a much accomplished central government official now. To relive our old times, we just sat outside on the side streets outside his office and caught up on each others’ parents, family and old schoolmates over a couple of cups of tea!! Living thru these moments is what gets me really excited about life. Who knew 27 years later we will share a cup of tea again?
Another interesting tidbit on him – I think he is the only person whose entire family – he, his wife and his twin kids (more on their talent in a later post) are my FB friends!!
Cheers! 2 both of you
Biplab, it was absolutely exhilarating getting to see Debasish after such a long time…
Astonishing that you would remember that you saw someone last in 1986.
Next timeI wish,the meeting would be a family one.
Brings back old memories.. Debu and myself.. We have spent so much time together when we were growing up..
I believe the Knower family are all friends of yours on FB.
Could not help noticing the follicle difference , makes the meeting interesting 🙂
Lia, you are right. Maybe 2 such families then?
What a moment in time…. you will remember this in your later years and smile
Meeting Rajib and his brother at such a short notice & the next half an hour journeying down the memory lane, was refreshing.
You should write a script for a movie based on these happenings….. Will be a runaway success 😉
Bharer chaa kheye ekhono beche acho? Diarrhea hoye dour lagabe!!
Etaakey aar beche thaka bola jay na 🙂 btw Sharmila and the kids landed in Dallas this evening
Baishali, I know! I hope too that we will get that chance!
Vicky, absolutely. I do how the next meeting will not take another 27 years!
Vignesh, any cool ideas on what the movie will be called? Bees Saal Baad?
Zindagi Na Mil Dubara could have been a good one if that was not made already.
Another title could be Rajib +- 20 given all the puzzles that you provide the community;)
Rajib when did u come to Kol ?
Mithun, I was in Kol for a few hours on Friday. You probably did not get a chance to check our group mail
