I have not heard from her since ages, last time I called her she was busy shifting back to India from another country and we could hardly talk.
Cute and petite, she was the life of our group. Her anecdotes with smatterings of “uno bola, to fir main boli” in typical Hyderabadi style kept the conversation alive.

It has been almost 8 years since we lost touch -she moved to australia got busy setting up her home and we got busy in business and Aasim’s growing up.
Have been searching for her since some time now and spoke to her today. It felt warm and nice.
She is Aasim’s ammu. A dear friend to me. She was someone I have always looked up to. At an age we were learning and honing our social and organizational skills she was always a step ahead and guided us. She shared my values in life, interests in literature and poetry and we sat and talked for hours at end.
It is not that we always kept in touch with each other, I went to Delhi to study, and then to work but whenever we met, even if it was after years, we picked up the threads where we had left them.
I wish we can sit and talk again like we did in those carefree days of yonder and wonder. I wish we meet soon.
