meeting a lost friend

Saturday I went to Jadavpur University for an entrance exam. i had no preparation for the exam and went there just because of Mom. but now i'm glad i did it. after the exam, i was talking to a friend of mine and i spotted him. it was koustav, koustav chatterjee. a very old and dear friend.i was seeing him after 2 long years. and he ws looking exactly like the last time, except now he had grown a beard. he was passing by me and i patted on his back. he turned back and recognized me. and we got engazed in a long chat season. while talking, i was thinking about our friendship. we were pals since the 6th standard and after 12th standard our lives were separated. the last time we met, he was studying geology in JU and me botany n Persidency. then they moved from their rented house and our contact was broken. i was talking to him and thinking that this is the guy who was my best friend, though we never studied in the same institution. i used to go school through the road by their home in the hope that i'd be able to get a glimpse of him. such a dear friend he was. we were talking bout the old times, the old pals, our lives, affairs and what not. the only change was in his vocabulary. he has become so foulmouthed. probably it's got contaminated by the engineering students. finally we exchanged each other's contact no. and he saw me off to the auto for the metro station.
i was feeling really thrilled after this meeting. and i'm glad that i went to sit for the exam. everyday you don't meet a lost friend, and that too a dear one. so if you ever have an option, which u don't want to go for; follow my advice and go for it. u never know what's waiting for you.

An old bond rejuvenated sometimes gives the feel that it wasn't broken in the first place.
