The solid hug they gave each other almost made up for the years that kept them apart.
“Gosh! Its ten years since we last saw each other.” Exclaimed one of the two.
“Eleven, to be precise.” The other one corrected.
“Oh, doesn’t matter. Now we’ll be in regular touch. So, tell me what’s up? Hey did I tell you I am going to join IIM, Ahmedabad this summer.”
“Great news. Congrats.”
“Thanks. What about you?”
“I am a struggling actor.”
“That’s alright. But what are you doing in life?”
“I told you.”
“Struggling actor? Nothing else?”
“Dude, thousands run after the glamour but only handful of them survive. Get yourself a job first and may be then-”
“Have you ever seen a star studded sky?”
“You may like the star just above your head or the one in the right or to the left perhaps but you got no right to question why the star to the left is in the left. I believe the point of our living is to find the coordinates where we know we belong and respect it irrespective of whatever difficulties or humiliation we encounter.”
