I was standing with my friends in a family get-together, smiling and being the best version of myself . Yes, I was the chosen one, you called me yours! Since that day I rarely meet my old friends, well, I have made many new ones now. At first I was asked to sit between two new friends, there was darkness everywhere. Few of us were asked to maintain discipline while many were part of a mess happily! I saw light maybe twice or thrice everyday that too for a very short period of time. Few of my friends used to get out of the darkness very often and few others hadn’t stepped out for years. You would touch me almost everyday yet, I was not brought out of that dark den. Maybe after a week or so, for the first time ever I came to know what being in ‘limelight’ actually felt like! I could see many of my kind but the smile on your face, when everyone gave us a thumbs up is my favourite. Those pictures you clicked with me fetched you so many likes! We both were so happy. we stared enjoying each others company. There were so many nights you refused to sleep with anyone else but me! I found the purpose of my existence through you and you found your luck, comfort, likes and beauty through me. How can I not tell about my first laundry experience ? It was disgusting to live with a stink but moving along with others was horrifying . Suddenly my movement was restricted, there was some pleasant smelling powder falling on me and whoosh! The cold water made me completely wet. There was spinning which was fun but rinsing was one tough experience, finally when everything was done and I could dance to the tunes of wind, basking under the bright sun sometimes take a short flight , I really felt I was the blessed one! Now I’m familiar with all these processes . Ahh! We grew old together, now that I have experienced those scooty rides, sudden rains, hot coffee, cheesy pizza, football hits, hiking trips and those cozy little moments with you, I feel contented. I have lost my charm now and I’m just like any other, I no longer meet high class friends of my society but I’m happy you still love me! Recently I enjoyed a lot in the festival of colours, from where I come, they say that’s how all of this comes to an end. Your mom hates me now but, I’m still your favourites! Soon, I’ll have too many feet over me and I don’t like the thought of kissing the floor. I just think of all the happy times we have spent together and I still love the way you looked at me for the very first and very last time.
