life takes you places

Had given up updating my blogs recently, and then suddenly a friend came to me, all elated..
"We have got the Permanent Resident Status in Australia. Life would be so good now." And that made me think.
Life really takes you places.
I remember once going to meet Sonu in Laxmangarh, and there I met this friend of mine. Struggling was not easy in the scorching heat of the sun in that remote village, which is now growing to a small town, all due to this girls college so aptly placed there. Aptly for me, for I got some of the most memorable days and friends in this place. So there was my friend, a few years back, all sweating but smiling at the prevailing happiness in the atmosphere then. And now here is my friend, chatting with me sitting in an AC room from Australia, smiling with hints of relief and happiness.
We were teens then when we laughed together, and now all of us have different paths. Paths so different that I doubt seeing them all together again. But wherever I am, and wherever You are, I wish you happiness. May the Force be with you for Life really takes you places.
