11th November 2010

Sunday, November 14, 2010 Posted by Bikram
Well early morning the phone rings its a foreign number

Girl :- Hello
Me :- Hello

Girl:- Can I talk to Bikramjit Please
Me:- Speaking

Girl:- Hi how you doing
Me:- I am fine whose this

Girl:- Happy birthday, you seem to have forgotten me
Me:- thank you, I still don't recognise you

Girl:- That is sad , All those years or knowing each other, the time we had You forgotten all of it
Me:- (by this time i am trying to remember every girl i have know, trying to remember there voices , Nothing comes to mind with a stupid laughter I say ) I am sorry i cant place you

Girl:- That is so bad, I thought you would remember me on your birthday, I had so many hopes , maybe i could brighten your day and maybe we could get chatting and start where we left
Me: (oh my god, who the hell is she ).. I am sorry Do i know you

Girl:- Yes trust you to forget what happened to all those promises and stuff you said to me

by this time i am going really crazy what the hell, who is this girl, OH MY GOD

Girl:- Hello you still there
Me:- Yes I am , Who are you , I don't remember you

Girl:- All men are like that , They cant be trusted , just because you have come to UK doesn't mean you cant remember me .. How can you do this to me
Me:- (she was still mumbling something when i said ) Well i am sorry I don't remember you, either you tell me or I will put the phone down...

Giggling, laughing a blokes voice could be heard in the background .. I was so confused .. who is this girl..

Then a Guy comes on the phone

Guy:- Oye sharam kar .. begaani janaani naal gal kari jana hain
                        (have some shame, talking to a unknow woman)
Me:- I seriously don't know who this is

Guy:- Well here talk to someone

I am going out of my mind what is going on,  at my tethers ..

a voice comes

Girl:- hello (it was a baby's voice )
I could hear a women's and man's voice telling her, say hello , say happy birthday

Girl:- Hello Chach Appy bday Chach
Me:- thank you
Girl:- How are you chach
Me:- I am fine How are you

Well by then I guess she got confused herself, so the guy comes back on the phone ..

Guy:- BIKRAMJIT SINGH MANN.. You $£$%£ you &%%£ Don't you recognise me

I have no idea what to say to this , I just kept my cool and let him say anything

Guy:- This is Jaspreet, I was with you in 5th class..

OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDd, So many memories just rushed past me .. bloody hell that was a shot from the past ... He was my first friend ....

Me:- Jasssi oh yaaar how , man how ...

Jassi:- and that women is your bhabhi , I got married have a daughter now

Me:- where are you
Jassi:- New zealand brother...

and then the conversation went on and on and on .. it was crazy.. One the best Birthday gifts I could have had .. YES people 11th Nov was my birthday .. So many GOOD friends forgot it , So many who supposedly are GOOD friends forgot it and here a blast from the past comes who remembered all this years and someone got my number ...

What made right all that was how the hell did he get my number , we have not talked to each other like for 20 odd years .. and at that age so young just 10 or 12 maybe ... Wow he found a common friend in India and asked him my number and then called me, whats amazing is he Remembered my Birthday was 11th ..
And another surprise was he is married to simranjeet, The class mate then .

How are the ODDS ... Blimey

It was a good day .. met a long lost friend Two friends rather and got a niece tooo Now .. what more can one ask for on there Birthday ....
TO me :)



Thank you all who remembered , Thank you all .. and thank you .. who made my day special.. you know who I am talking of ... :)

    Holding his parents' hands,
    wide eyed at Amritsar,
    "Maththaa Tek"
    at the Temple in Gold;
    Aashirwads
    and jeetay rahos
    from the
    grand folks,
    A wild run
    back home
    through
    wheat fields
    and canals,
    and a wonderful
    meal
    of sarson ka saag,
    makki di roti,
    and a kheer
    as sweet
    as your newly discovered niece....
