Sometimes it's good to let go...

many a times in life, you feel so helpless, so pitied, so anguished that everything else blurs... u lose ur strength and decision making ability. u kind of get shattered. no way out in vision! my dear friends, it happens. n the turmoil which u are going through, can never be understood by any other soul on earth! if at all someone understands a part of it, it is ur best friend or may be that one person to whom u are the closest. in my case, it's my best friend!
jisne bhi suna yahi kaha k let it be yaar! just forgive and forget. nobody can understand what's the real turmoil going on within. but you know, from whatever i could understand and i could gather, sometimes we must let go...let go the one who was very close, very important....sometimes we ought to let go ....for their sake...for our sake...coz what could be the point in carrying forward a relation which would see constant accusing, back biting,  blah blah blah....no one intended to do what happened but circumstances bring out the angel or the devil inside you. no one intended to break it, no one intended to fight with th other...but sometimes we don't have control over what happens, over what dooms to happen, over what is looming near, over you fate, over your anguish, over your love........we must learn to let go...only for the sake of those lovely things which were there in the past, only for those beautiful sordid emotions that had resided in the past, only for those shared smiles and moments that went on to become lifelong memories....memories that will always be cherished, always be reminisced......nobody wants to lose a friend....a good friend.....but sometimes....it is good to let go......and trust me on this....coz going through the same thing again and again becomes a hell lot aching and painful....for both sides.....if only both would let go...at least the memories of happy times stay intact..... or else they too get dimmer and fader with time......the reason why i am writing this here is that every time someone gets to know that something has happened, he/she keeps advising, get back! don't do this. don't do that. just let it be and carry on... phir se dosti kar lo............ for all those reading this post, i would like to clear that at i have never let the friendship depart, i just let my friend go....... toh phir se dosti karne ka koi sawal hi nai uthta......... i can't show what i have been through but i can assure that memories of this friendship will continue to ever inspire my and bring smile on my lips..........one can never stop loving a friend but sometimes...you have to let go that friend......sometimes it is good to let go......

so...as the three day visit is concluding today, both India n US are enriched with some bonding moments...whether it be the First lady of US dancing with small kids in Mumbai or Mr. President Obama doing a jig with students in Delhi, each of those moments will be fresh in millions of minds for long..... not to forget the tough pulling by students of Xavier's, Mumbai! some really nice questions were put upfront to Obama which had him nervous for a while before answering......i must confess it was fun to watch it all! that a person of such stature is pulled up by small anonymous pupils, it really gives me a high.....not that it was in the case of Obama but every time i see any such incident or dialogue, i have a funtime! and i must agree to the fact that Mrs Obama is a such a sport! dancing the koli style with kiddos...so sweet of her! i have always read in papers about how good a homemaker this lady is! she keeps a check on everything, be it her kids' online connect or their studies or Mr. Obama's plans...everything n anything! and with this comes a surge of respect and applause for the first lady of US. anyways...what i was actually speaking about was the 'Oh-Obama' phenomenon! Mr. Obama visited us,our pleasure but it turned out to be their pleasure as well! with all those snaps n pics being flashes in various news channels, what i could gather is that it was a "serious" fun trip for the Obamas... aint that great! packed with dancing, dinner eminent personalities from Bollywood, sports, music and of course cabinet, it was nothing less than a wholesome tour for the first family of US. and i appreciate the way we, india, handled it. i mean, that is what we are known for all over the world! our hospitality. ATITHI DEVO BHAVA. that is imbursed in our culture, our core set of values and ethos. i am definitely impressed by how we have tended them but at the same time i also sense the contrast between their and our culture. when our prime minister n his wife visits them or our president visits them...this is not the kind of attention and embrace they draw. but anyways....in India Mr Obama is definitely a phenomenon...one who has totally rotated the US policy making scenario! at a time when US commanded the world, they saw crowning of Mr Barrack Hussein Obama as their president and this president changed the whole picture! for a change we have a US prez who loves peace and who follows Gandhi, our beloved Bapu........we have a prez who wouldn't mind shaking a leg with kids and who wouldn't mind facing a tough session wit open minded students and who has a wife, Michelle who invites much more respect when she says that,'i urge you to ask my husband some very tough questions a give him a tough time.....'.....oh Obama!
