2017 has been a year of action. A lot happened over coffee, tea, internet and mainly WhatsApp; since we made a school group.
I met many long-lost friends and made some new ones. There are quite a few who I never met in school or I don’t remember our acquaintance clearly. Maybe, too much alcohol has eaten away my memory. Kindly stay from it.
I mean from memory, not alcohol.
Coming back to the point, Alwyn Thomas is one man who has taken a special place since we have ganged-up through the digital conversations we have.
Although, he’s the one I know least about, writing on him is a sheer joy because I love the unknown.
Alwyn is a reservoir of joy. He’s always laughing and making others do the same. And believe me, this is an art and craft that few in this world possess.
He’s a magician. He has won my heart in no time.
He’s staying in Dubai and this is the reason we have not been able to talk on the phone yet. But I am sure with his visit—to Mumbai—this year, we are going to meet and have all the fun available in this universe.
I really feel that the point is not that we have met or not—in fact, that doesn’t matter anymore—but the point is that he’s so compassionate that he’s made a place in my heart.
This is the beauty of love.
The body doesn’t need to meet and there is a heart-to-heart communication. The story of Alwyn is the best example of a successful long-distance friendship.
