What a BIG day it was...
Seven years back...
Your Roka ceremony...
Dome Banquet Hall, Taj-Ambassador Hotel...
Somehow each and every relative was in Delhi that day...
God played a funny game

You did not take your new camera, because you were too possessive about it, and did not want anybody to use it.
Everything was so quick and smooth, it all looked so favorable...

Room no 107, MPCT hostel was always remembered because of two astounding fellas...Shaurya and Varun of geeks and most talented duos in college...if there could be one synonym to his name.. it has to be 'smile'. Seldom a moment when smile would part with its favorite child... I think he had made the room his patent.. I went to the hostel 2 yrs back ..his name was still tere in one of the closet.. .Shaurya sir had set benchmark in everything he wanted..I cannot believe he decided to part with world so early...feels like it was ysday wen I had visited him in pune and we had fun that evening.

Saw a child coming to school for the first time. His dad came to leave him. The child was crying and had so many things to tell to his father before leaving his hand.
the child was going to a world not known to him.....
why did you go without saying anything to a world...not known to anybody....

Standing on the foothill I could hear the voice of military people, calling out your name in the dense forest. I too called you once but was stopped that you both will get confuse of the direction. I was quiet. That voice is still trapped inside me. I want to call your name…standing on a hill top..very very loudly.

He was always fascinated by girl. For him, girl was something like a dream. His first crush was a girl in school, one or two years junior to him. And he was very open talking about his feelings, emotions to me…… once he showed me her picture in the school magazine. I still remember the blush on his face. And while showing her picture, he suddenly said- Mom see, my hands have become so cold!
The honesty, the innocence, the blush and the sparkling eyes….are still in front of me, only…he is missing.
The list of his girls is long. Few accepted, few rejected…
But the end of the story is…
his dream of getting a wife was never fulfilled ……

I am missing you Bubby Mama. Aap to hamey chhod kar chale gaye lekin hum apko abhi bhi miss karte hai. Hum Nanu aur Nani ka achchha khayal rakhte hai. Hum sab Facebook par Farmville khelte hai, I hope ki agar aap bhi hote to aap bhi khelte. Bunny Mama bhi theek hai. Aap mere mama nahi balki bestest friend the aur nahi abhi bhi hai. Jab bhi apko meri yaad aye to mujhe sapne mei miliyega. Aur agar ho sake to sapne mei mujhe treking wali mistery batayega.
Love from your bhanji

Suji ka halwa on Navmi… how eagerly Shaurya used to wait in his crisp kurta pajama, while his grandma prepared the kanjak feast.
He was so fond of suji halwa that when he used to come home, and as I started roasting suji for making halwa for breakfast, he used to jump out of his bed, quickly coming and sitting on the kitchen slab, enjoying even the cooking process.
This Navmi has some other memories too…
Shaurya with his friend went to buy some sweets for his buaji. We at home were making halwa puri for the festival when Shaurya came home with his broken knee ligament.. Doctor asked for operation, but with the recommendation of another doctor, his leg was plastered for few months. He gave his pre boards, then boards and went to engineering college. It was only after two years his knee ligament was operated by one of the best doctors of AIIMS. Every thing was so conveniently arranged. A private room in accordance with the availability of the doctor. Which is difficult in AIIMS. We always thanked God for making the path favourable for us.
But now at times I feel, it would have been better if we could not get his knee rectified, then he would have not gone for trekking….

Dear Bubby there is hardly any day when i do not remember you.I will always cherish the memories of the last Diwali our whole family celebrated together.You along with your brothers had decorated the house so beautifully,that it was looking like a fairyland.We all were so happy and feeling really blessed.
And then we got the sad news that you had left for your heavenly abode.Our whole world turned topsyturvy.The meaning of life is not the same any more.
Everyday when i go to the roof for a walk i touch the nails lovingly thinking of you, that you had held them in your hands while putting them there.Love you beta.
May your soul rest in peace.

It has been one year since he has left and although this day brings to mind the sorrow of his passing, it is also an opportunity to revisit some wonderful memories of him. I was just remembering the time we all spent at my wedding, that's the last time i met him. He gave me something which no one could...lifetime memories of my wedding. Only he could capture one of the bestest picture of mine which i have enlarged and framed. Whenever i look at that picture i remember him.
He has been so good and so enthusiastic about everything and everyone. He was an example for people to look upon.

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why he left this earth so soon, or why he left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that he died, but that he lived. And that his life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.

I hope his soul would be resting in peace. I miss him.

Two days left for the year 2009 to pass, 2009...the year when my child was with me.
How can a person be ditched by the one with whom he was so much in love? Shaurya was so much in love with his life, and the life ditched him. He loved to be Shaurya, was fully aware that he was an adorable person. It was so easy for him to laugh, which is not very common with boys as I see. He even used to laugh full heartedly on the stupid jokes of Sud, that was coming on Radio Mirchi.
When I see the young boys going to school in scorching hot sun or extremely cold morning, covering their faces, heads and hands, the hardship of students' life, makes me remember the days when my sons also went through the same phase. Now the happy days had just come, just four years back!! When Shaurya did his first air journey, was settling in the life. Dependent upon the maid to come and cook, if she did not turn up, sometimes making khichdi at midnight, or hunting for food, or just settling with chips and biscuits. Now life was getting smooth for him. He achieved so much in four years, how far he had to go.... he had plans unlimited, guts to touch the stars...
God proved himself unfaithful to the one who had full faith in the justice of God.

I remember the day when I was office in the evening and my friends from Pune called and informed me that Shaurya was missing. He had called the week earlier and told me not to come to Pune since he and his friends were going for trekking. He was one of my friends whom I always thought as the most adventurous one who loved trekking, para-gliding, river-rafting and so on. So I said okay then I will come over the next weekend. I completely forgot about his trekking till that dreadful call. I still remember convincing myself that his mobile network must have gone or his mobile must have broke down and that he is just fine. However fate had some different plans for us. I believe life is no longer the same who knew Shaurya and we are still coping with his loss.

Shaurya was in my project in my previous company and I had the opportunity to work with him in two projects. I remember him as a shy guy and always dedicated to his work. Fortunately or unfortunately we worked on the same modules and when I was at onsite he used to be at the receiving end. However he took it very professionally and we developed a very good rapport. Even in my second project, though he joined the project late he quickly gelled with my team and build good relationships with the client. He was very people friendly and very charming. He had something in him which used to brighten up the work environment. We as a team used to go out for lot of moves and dinner and he was the one to organize most of them. Myself, Lalit and Shaurya, we were one group that could watch any movie anytime.

We left the company more or less at the same time. I had to move to Mumbai and he left for better prospects. However since I had taken a flat in Pune, I used to visit Pune over the weekend. And undoubtedly he was the one who helped me in setting up my place. I remember every small thing in my new place, we must have got together.

He also had bought a flat in the nearby area and was very excited about moving into the new place. Initially he was thinking of renting it out however as his flat took shape, he had already made plans to move in himself. I remember him being so excited about his place that he took me and Kiran to see his new home late evening. Since his building was still in construction stage, there were no lights, lifts and it was pitched dark. With the help of our mobile lights we walked up the stairs and he showed us his flat. He seemed excited of the smallest details of his house and beemed like a proud owner.

Lately there were talks about his marriage and his engagement was almost fixed. I remember telling him that we would all come over to Delhi and we would have lot of fun. He too was very happy with this new innings.

Everything was happening picture perfect till that dreadful day. Life is not the same after that. However my loss is nothing when I would compare it with his parents especially his mother. He was very close to his mom and I remember him sharing everything with his mom. I don’t have any words to console, however I just pray that god gives her all the strength to deal with the loss. One thing I am sure she would be very proud of herself since she had raised such a fine gentleman.

There were many qualities in him one could learn from most importantly being there. Friend in need is friend indeed and he was the perfect example. I don’t know how he used to manage with everybody having the same 24hrs to live.. But somehow who could accommodate everybody. Even if you call him at mid-night, he would be all pumped up to help. I am sure many of his friends would vouch for that.

Secondly he had this zeal to live life fully. He was already very good with guitar, however he had taken a new challenge to learn violin. He was always ready to learn new things then be it cooking or out door activities. I remember once he had gotten some kebabs made of chole I believe. It was Mexican or Lebanese dish and I tell you it was really very good. He was full of excitement and every ready to explore life.

He knew the secret how to live life fully.

I was on cloud nine, both the sons were doing well. Very caring and courteous. When they both came together on last Diwali, it was fun going out with them. Me, with both the sons went to Great India Place, without any cash or card. As I entered the mall, my demands started, I want a hidesign purse, get me a clutcher too. Treat me with a pizza, an ice-cream, now I want to eat Mexican.....
Shaurya used to get many things for his dad too. He used to say that he loves to see the shine in his dad’s eyes when he gets new gadgets for him. Son, all the shine in your dad’s eyes is gone.
We used to smile on everything. Be it a floating cloud, rising sun, blooming flowers, cool breeze. Now the smiles have turned into tears.
From his childhood he had a dream to marry. Last year he asked us- what are you upto mom dad, shaadi- vaadi kariye meri. He used to say, since I’ve got a car, I feel like having a girl on my next seat. Sorry beta, you were a worthy son, but we could not prove ourselves worthy parents.

When Shaurya was going Bhubaneshwar to join Infosys, his dad asked an NRI couple, sitting in his bogey to take care as he was travelling alone for the first time.
After four years, when Shaurya put his profile on a matrimonial site (his careless parents were not taking any initiative), a call came from Kuwait...same person, for his daughter. That gentleman told us that his wife still remember Shaurya's name.
Shaurya was not extra good looking or handsome, but his courteous behaviour and honesty left mark on everyone.
We realise it now.

Once Shaurya was travelling by train from Pune to Kolkata. In his compartment he met an old gentleman Dr. Goverdhan whose ticket was by mistake reserved for some other date. Shaurya offered his berth to the old couple and himself stood near the door of the compartment whole night so that they could sleep comfortably without thinking of his inconvenience. This gesture of Shaurya impressed all the copassangers so much that they remained in touch even after the journey.

After this Shaurya called on Dr. Goverdhan at his house several times on his invitation.

His sincerity and humanity always brought people closer to him. He made everyone feel special, be it his family or friends.

THAT WAS SHAURYA....proud of you my son.

i still remember those days when i was in 6th standard a lil kid entering a whole new world which was very new to me and i was scared. i am the only child to my parents so i didnt had a big bro to give me the confidence and to hold my hand and tell me dnt worry everythings fine but shaurya bhaia played tht role in my life, it was the first day of my new school first day in school bus was very scared to face new people, my seniors i still remember when i got in the bus he knew me and he understood tht i was scared he asked me to sit with him and made me feel secure and just like a big bro he said "sahil tumhe kabhi koi bhi problem ho to mujhe batana" tht line tht one single line gave me the confidence to go thru tht phase of my life . It may be a very brief span of time tht i spent with him but the part tht he played was something tht i will never forget in my whole life nobody can ever take tht place.when i sit down and i think tht now when god has taken him away from us i feel tht my big bro has left me. miss u shaurya bhaiya..may god bless ur loving and caring soul

Hey Buddy !!!! Lots have been written about you and iam not going to write anything like how good you were to everyone around you ,because the moment people came in touch with you they got to know of your innate benevolence,the purity in your heart and the joie de vivre you had in you....Iam taking this opportunity just to let you know my friend how close i hold you to my heart, as it is i only have a select group of friends(whom i can count on my fingers) and you were without doubt such a DARLING whom i always valued a lot,cruel fate of course had some other plans, if only that moment could never have come,life would have been so different with you still around,Miss you always.....Love you...

Fate and Nature
This is my first blog and I am starting this blog to map my mind on to the words...

Was reading the blog of one of the friend who is no more in this world, who already said good bye to the life , The friend who always had a smile on his face, who was always a helping hand , who was a great guitarist and a best buddy ever.

Miss you my friend, you left us all and made a void in our lives.

Dedicating my first blog to the friendship of my friend Shaurya, whom God called with Him at so early stage...

Yesterday heard something I cant believe. Its such a painful thing that took place and the news like this of our own friend whom you just had a talk couple of hours back is unbelievable and could not imagine how tough the time is for his family, but everyone has his own fate, we all are ruled by whats already written for us.

Wish to get my friend back in life, but nothing happens like the way we wish. Time shows us everything in this life.

Dear Friend Shaurya, may God give peace to your soul and courage to your family to take this big loss. Your absence in life will always be throughout the life.
Will always miss you and your blog ""

'Yahaan sab kuch hai maa phir bhi

Why he made me listen these lines repeatedly?
Was there any message?
Is he really lonely?
Should I go there?
Why my family is devided into two worlds???
God will you ever speak?
