Life is not always more or less the sameShagun was sitting alone outside in a restaurant. A cup of coffee was kept on the table. Suddenly, his eyes fell on a man entering there. Isn't it Sumit? He thought for once and then called out loudly.
The man raised his eyes and came forward. Shagun! 'What a pleasant surprise meeting you here in this small town? " sitting beside him, the man asked occupying a chair beside him.
Shagun smiled and then went back to old memory lane. They were bosom friends and lived in the same colony. people used to say that they were one soul in two bodies. He was weak but Sumit was strong and study.
However, things changed when they were in class VIII. His father died and he had to go out looking for a job to support his mother and only brother. After much struggle, he got the job of a labourer in a small company.
At first, they were in constant touch through letters but with the passage of time, their contacts became less and less and one day that too was broken when Sumit also went out, joining a managerial a post in a big farm.
Years rolled by and slowly they forgot each other. Today, his son is a famous doctor of the town and he had forced Shagun to stay with him. At this old age, Shagun can enjoy all the luxuries of life.
"What are you thinking?" Sumit's voice brought him back to present.
"What should I order for you?" Shagun smiled, "You were a foodie since beginning and I am sure you have not changed your habit."
"I had to. I'm diabetic and strictly on diet control. Life is not always more or less the same, my friend."
"But friendship is always. It can be more but not less."
Both of them laughed loudly.
