The 2nd Ranker


Sorry for writing so late, you know how much mess I am in right now.

So, finally, the last piece of domino has collapsed. People I met in Mumbai, the reason I found this city to be sustainable has scattered.

First Lee took the diversion in 2015.
Then Vichu in 2016.
Last year my ex.
And this year, finally the nail in the coffin you Dubey.

I still remember my first interaction with you, as I pissed you off and you left in all the anger. Yeah, I know you don’t remember this incident but I am very well aware of it as well as Vichu is (That’s my curse and a boon in many factors, of having great memories stored in the brain.) The funny part has we hardly had interactions with you while we were in College. Your first visit at Nasik is where things turned for us and the bond grew from there.

You teaching me a few crazy subjects while wrapping up the things in engineering as well as showing me how to be in love with Money and not being greedy for it. I owe you for these two things that I have learnt from you.

Of course, going out in restaurants won’t be the same anymore as it was with you because of your ‘N’ number of criticism of location as well as the interior and the food itself. I cent per cent feel we became close friends due to the love for food and trying out the various dishes which are available on the menu. Right from having the crazy cheap food at Sion Koliwada to having the Mushroom Sev Puri and making a bill of **** at The Clearing House and everything in between. The only thing we need to continue is to try all the cuisine until we die. Buddy, now you need to improve your culinary skills quickly because Vichu has up his game we surely need to keep a competition who cooks better in 3 of us. For us, it will be Food ∞ Love.

Last year was the craziest time for me, after the breakup. There were many to handle me over the calls but you actually handled my tantrums in physical state and pulling me out of swampy mess I was in. You saw me doing the sh*tiest things I have ever done. Fortunately, you never saw me crying in actual. 😀

Me training you how to ride a bike and both of us ending up into skidding is a funny one. That day I got to see how one can be in shock who claims ‘I don’t carry emotions’ kinda guy. The endless scrolling on OLX just to get the best deal for laptops, mobile and what not. Approaching various sellers and also getting ourselves to screw up in the 5k scam. Damn it we need to recover it from others. 😛

I’m gonna visit your parents to eat chole bhature and also all other restaurants which we love to have food at, and send you photos while having the lovely delicacies or maybe some time give you a video call just to see your reaction. So, be ready with my endless teasing.

Last but not the least, I envy you for your matches on ****. FU for that. 🙂

So, now you have started off with a new journey of your life at Trichy. Of course, it is a proud moment for me but it is slightly an emotional moment too, you know why I will be emotional too. Please for God sake, do grab the 2nd rank.

I have always said that you taught me things about Money, Ex about Family being selfish, Vichu about Friends and Lee about not taking a step back until you win. This is what I learnt from staying in Mumbai with you all and I am thankful to all of you. And, now maybe it’s time for me to also to move on and start things which need to start.

Golden words by Rajiv P Rai: MBA krte krte Tiruchirappalli bolna seekh jaaye, wohi bohot hain! (In the course of doing MBA, if you learn how to say Triu….. should be more than enough!)

M, remember one thing no matter how much you care and respect people around you, no one will ever do the same for you except your parents.
