Friends they say is a treasure forever. A treasure, which you just want to use more and more rather than plainly sitting on it. We can come up with so many definitions to put this bond into words, but we will always fall short and shorter.
Countless crazy moments, warmth of a reassuring smile and pure delight of relentless laughter, ain’t these some veins of friendship? However, even those with innumerable more traits cannot capture the true essence. It is something that escapes words.
Many a times i think that is it about a feeling of being there and feeling the nature of co-existence. Again a new question pokes up its head. Really, is it mandatory to meet the person? Is it essential to spend hours together on lousy evenings and lazy afternoons?
If the answer is yes, then how do I describe a bond that transcends boundaries and defies the very limitations of physical co-existence?
Of course, I am referring to a friendship, which blossoms in the virtual world of the internet. Think if you want that I am crazy, but it is what it is. Such camaraderie defies all the narrow-minded notions that one may have.
It is absolutely true, these relations are often based on assumptions that may be a lie. However, I am one of those lucky rascals who got it right. I am one of those very fortunate people who met the right kind of people in this misleading jungle.
In general, right from the guys with whom I have shared my every evening for half a decade to my amazing MAD fellows, I have been blessed with the presence of wonderful people around me. They have made me the person I am. However, something happened to me that I had never dreamt of.
When i was just following my passion of WWE nonchalantly on Bleacher report, i met people, who within a moment became integral part of my joy and happiness. They own as many blissful moments of my life as anyone could.
Ever bustling Deal, gifted Jamal, Charming Ashley, and the very man himself Mike as known as the Professor these are the people who have made these times memorable. They are a blessing to say the least. I have shared my passion for WWE with them. But that is the smallest part of it. Those crazy conversations, goof-bomb comment threads, LMAO moments, professor’s wisdom and heartwarming presence made it what it has become. I can go on and on, but lesser I would say, more it will remain special.
Their presence has added more color to my day. After a rough event or disappointing moment at work, all I need is to log in and say hi to my buddies.
It is very special. And that is why we are ‘The Faction’.
True, I have never seen them. Most probably, i will never meet them in real life either. But it hardly matters. I know they are present. I can sense their ‘being here’. They have made me the person I could be. The journey has begun, and it will continue for the rest of time. The colors have started spreading.
It was my first blog post. Therefore I thought, I will dedicate it to those who are angles in my life, always there but never seen.
