You never know the biggest day of your life is going to be the biggest. The days you think are going to be the big ones, they are never as big as you make them out to be in your head. It's the regular days, the ones that start out normal. Those are the days that end up being the biggest.
Throughout my 20 year old life, I have had many beautiful days. And each and every one of them has their own significance .So it is very difficult to pick one and call it “the most beautiful day in my life”. But I would like to share one such day that I would consider to be “One of the most beautiful days of my life.
15 may 2015 I think is one of the most beautiful days of my life, not because I got placed into my dream company or won a million dollars but it is a day when I realised the importance of family and friends. I have written down the whole story which spans over a few months. So please settle down and enjoy.
I was born in a village and brought up into a city Agra. I stayed there till the age of 18, so my entire school and college life were spent in that city. During my college days I used to bunk classes and explore the city and that is how I developed a passion for exploring new places. There were so many things that I discovered about the city and I developed a strong bond with the place. As I was growing up and learning about new things, I time came when I didn’t want to stay with my family anymore. Not because they were evil or they hated me, it's just that I was sick and tired of all the pampering and wanted to get out of all this and start my own life.
I used to live in hostel actually i was sent there for better studies till intermediate classes. So i passed out my school in 2018. I was so passionate to work and be self independent no matter how i just wanted to.
So for seeking job i searched online and found one and i went to that city for the interview and i actually passed it out,and got the job i was just so happy but that wasn't the biggest of my life or maybe it was but i don't consider biggest day of my life.
All of a sudden one day i got call from one of my best friend from the school time. He told me that he is getting married on 3 October 2019 and if I didn’t attend his wedding, he will not talk to me anymore. I felt so happy for him that I immediately went online and booked flight tickets to Indore.
When I reached home from the airport, the smile that I saw in the faces of my parents was priceless. And then the usual pampering started. Plates full of food were served to me along with sweet dishes which my mother always thought were my favourites even though I always hated sweets. After dinner I went straight to my friend’s house and met him and many of my other childhood friends. The feeling after meeting your old buddies after a very long time cannot be expressed through words.
I enjoyed the wedding so much that didn’t even realize how 4 days got over so fast. Eventually 7 October arrived and it was time for me to return back to Agra.
Before leaving I hugged my mom and her eyes became a little teary. While I was travelling in the cab, I was seeing city at dawn after a very long time and it was looking so beautiful. So many people were out for their morning walk, those old tea stalls, the hand pulled rickshaws, the flower vendors, the newspaper vendors, old tram lines, those old buildings, the lung of the city - Maidan, Esplanade and all those other places with which I have so many childhood memories associated. All those memories from my childhood started appearing right in front of my eyes as flashbacks – those endless cricket matches during summer vacations, the ice golas at Maidan, tram rides with friends, walking along the footpaths of esplanade during college days, birthday celebrations of me and my brother, the different kinds of board games that I used to play with my friends, homeworks, class tests, getting zero in a maths test in 5th standard , hiding my report card under the sofa which was ultimately discovered by my brother, outings with my family and relatives, cartoon network and many other things which made my childhood so special. That cab ride changed my mindset forever. It made me realise that I was taking my friends and family for granted, All these while I didn’t realise how lucky I am to have so many friends some of whom I know since the age of 4.When in today’s world many people don’t even have a single friend. You can be a rich if if you have a lot of money but you can never be wealthy if you don’t have good relations with your friends and family.
Here is a quote that I found on some website and I really loved it.
“Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.”
7 October2019 was a day that I will never forget and the feeling
