A MOMENT AT LADIES CLUB
Friendship is a great asset. But much undervalued and always taken for granted. Why? Because everybody has friends, rather most of us have. To have a true friend is the greatest comfort in the world. This is one relationship in life where your status symbol does not matter. Your friend will support you when you need it most. Friendship is a great gift not to be taken for granted. In order to have a friend one must be a friend. The capacity of a woman's heart for meaningful relationships is vast. A woman must have women friends who walk with you into your own wound and help you heal... To give you eyes. If you as woman don't tune into your own pure heart and live your truth... you will build walls so high around you, you won't even be able to climb them yourself.
I am fortunate enough to say that I have friends, real friends who mean the world to me. Some of them have them have stood by me, understanding me, and reaching out, holding my hand without me asking for help. I can say with full conviction that this is the only sphere of my life that has been successful. .I am so very grateful for their purity, humility, courage, strength and love.
We have a group on Face Book…called the Ladies Club, started by Kriti Mukherjee. We have made friends to last us a life time, bonds never to be broken….This was written way back, 17th of January…since then, our friendship has grown a lot.
A loving person, and writes like a pro….you are so talented, Sulekha….wake up and start your book. I feel safe when I’m communicating with her, because she’s like my big sister! I can always count on her when I have problems. She will never leave me behind...
The backbone of all these amazing and lifetime bonds that are being formed…so young and yet she can give the best possible advice. Thank you for coming into my life….both you sisters are life saviors for many like me, for whom loneliness had become our friends. There is truly a lot to say about Kriti, so starting off is quite a tough one. She is our life-size pillow. She is so strong, that she could actually manage to lift us all….. She’s not only tough on the outside but also on the inside. She’s like a turtle, strong and unbeatable, but on the inside, she is an amazingly kind-hearted individual. The big sister and acting momma of the group, Kriti will be in every corner of the room for comfort and liking everything we do, in good and in rough times.
Sheba Daniel (Chokher Bali)
A genuine friend who knows the very essence of the word “FRIENDSHIP”. She’s truly one of a kind. Her looks may exude intimidation because of the way she speaks for herself, but once you’ve been given the chance to know the other side of her, you’ll see past through the domineering personality. You’ll see the little girl in her, the type who loves to laugh and treasure all the wonderful moments she’d been through. You’ll see the warrior who doesn’t give up a fight as long as she knows she’s right. You’ll see a woman who knows how to love and give her heart to. You’ll see the music lover who appreciates good music. And the best part of her- her heart. Words aren’t good enough to express how much love she can give and offer to her friends, family and God. (Have you ever come across anyone who calls their car "ZEENATH".) My life would not have been the same without you….Cheeni
A big hearted friend to whom I can trust and depend on. A person that treasures all of her friends….someone who has been sending smiles, kisses, hugs….actually making people jealous. A friend whom you can run to and share your problems, even the most shitty ones. She will give her time just to comfort you. She will do her best just to show to her friends that she loves them. (And I’m one of those lucky friends of Reshmi)
She always listens to my stories gives advice and a lady who is not afraid to speak. What you see is what you get. She is a friend I will surely treasure and will never forget for the rest of my life. She never fails to make her friends happy. She speaks her mind and expresses her heart. She knows what she likes and what she hates… She doesn’t care about what other people may say for as long as she knows her self… That’s the attitude girl!! A friend who listens and vocalizes her opinions without hesitation. I have known you for so long, and its great that our friendship has become even stronger.
People may get intimidated once they face her…. But what they don’t know about her is that she’s a friend that will never leave you hanging! She says everything that she thinks of and is not afraid of what people will think. A confidante who reached out to me, without me telling her anything, and gave me, support and advice that really helped me….wish I knew you better back in Darjeeling.
She is very opinionated. She’s a “crystal glass” full of thoughts. If she doesn’t like you, she’ll tell you. She’s very transparent, when I initially met her in college, I found her as the one that bullies. But once I got the chance to get inclined with her, was amazed by what’s in her heart. She influences people with her wisdom and her faith in God. She’s very loyal to her friends and she doesn’t let them get lost with her honesty and sweetness. It’s your charisma, your fears, your principles and your will that entices people to like you and to be liked by you. One indisputable truth is the rule to knowing you- you lead….same applies for Kriti also. This gift of yours, a gift, a lucky few are born and bred with, luster or else tarnishes you, together with the people around you.
Though I’ve known you very recently, you still mesmerize me on how your character works. You’re this person in a story that puts all things in perfect harmony. The exhaustion that accumulates whenever I scrutinize your nature burns me to enjoy it. A queen who emanates power even without the effort. A princess, fragile, sweet and charming….your voice tells me all. She has a warm heart that will meet you when you need advice. Rimly is someone who I can talk about my problems ....and I love the way she talks…and when she writes…I don’t have the words…. When it comes to solving a friend’s problem, she’s the right person to go to….in spite of having her own to deal with, she gives me a lot of strength. You all learn a lot of things with this girl. She is the “biggest part of the group.”
I met her very recently….and she is cool….I wish I had her mental strength…and wish she would interact more here.
Someone I am longing to meet…she is like my shield, standing quietly behind me….I am so happy to have met you here.
The type of bond we are sharing is marvelous…I am waiting for you to get here….its indeed a pleasure to have you as my friend.
Eva, Priyashmita, Prateebha, Lavina, E Nina, Gargi, Yoshay, Amin…and everyone else I have interacted with here in Ladies Club…thank you, it’s been a wonderful journey up till now….
“It takes a lot of understanding, time, and trust to gain a close friendship with someone. As I approach a time of my life of complete uncertainty, my friends are my most precious asset."
