When I Met My Friends !

Hey Friends!

Hope   In spite  of all ups and downs life still  seems  precious  and worth  living  through  not only your body but  your SOUL  too.

How interesting are  words  ups and downs ,ups when your heart leaps out with joy and down when you  feel low and want to be left alone for while .

But believe me  when you exist from [down]  the shell of  pessimism you discover the true value and definition of  [up] hope and  happiness.

Spring  is  stepping  onto   the white  cold heart  of earth  slowly,just  like one  true friend  who  left  for while  inevitably and came back   near  to  know  with  care  and  hold  the wrist of  ill with concern that  if    she  has  successfully survived  the  rude weather  that  she  encountered  in his absence or  gave up her  hope ?

And  earth is  happy  instead  of   being annoyed  because  she is  a true  optimist  a  strong  believer  of  her friend Spring .She  knew  that her  friend  left  for  the  reason  and  will be  back  to  her  no  matter  what  happen.  She  did  not  take  affect  of   hard  season  who  tried  to  shaken her  faith in her friend  and  her  strength  was  her  love  for  her  friend .She  believed  that  if   her  own  love  is true  and  deep  for  her  friend [Spring] God  will never  let  her[spring]  cheat  her  because  victory  is  always  for  truth  and  faith  not  for  lie  or  fake.

One  who  thinks that  he  is  successfully  won  against  truth  by  his  cheap  tricks  need  to  ponder  upon  his  success .Did  it  give  him  Peace ?  False  and  timely  success  cannot  deliver  Peace  to  one's  heart  because  it  is against the laws of nature.And  without  Peace  what  is  the benefit  of  so  called  success ???

Dear  friends  today  i  am  sharing  with  you  photos  of  my  friends from my school age. They  both  live in  my native  land not exactly  in  same village  but city  near  it. Whenever  i  go  to  visit  my  native  village  in  summer  vacations  i  meet  them  and  It  stays  most  pleasurable part  of  my  memories as  we meet  and  remember  our  old  days  of school and  all  fun  stuff  related  to  it .




First  Shazi   who  lives  in  another  town  came  to  meet  me  in  my  native  home and then we  both  went  to  our  another  friend  Khudija  who  lived  in a city  one hour drive away  from  us.


 Kudija  is  sitting between  us ,she  is  government school  teacher  and her husband  is general manger  of a  heavy  mechanical  industries .We  were  meeting  after  tow  years  and  were  so  happy .

Shazi  is  a  house  wife  and  has  tow  boys  school  going  one is in high school. She  was  forced  to  get  married  with  her  first  cousin  after  when  she  was 20 > Her  cousin  used  to  like   someone else  but  could  not resist  his parents will .Though  they  both had  tow  sons  but still live  like  strangers.I  really appreciate her strength  to make  her married life  work  like this just  for the sake of parents and kids.

Khudija  in  school  was  kind  of  different  girl who  beard LOT of pressure  for  taking good  grads  in each test and exam .Her  father  was  most  educated  man  among  common  people  .i mean there  were  some  landlords  who  were  almost rulers of the area  and it  was  seemed  only  their  right  to have good education and hold high position in  society [25 years back] So  Khudija's  father  was  kind of threat for  those  landlords because  they wanted people around them ignorant and illiterate to obey  and salute  them like  slaves.

In  short  her  father was MUCH  passionate about  his family education and he kept his kids under pressure  for good  grads .He  forced his elder  tow sons  to  be  doctor  and  due  to they did not have enough mental  capacity  they   became  psychological   patients .After  many years  they became little normal  to live  normal life.This  is biggest  tragedy  of the life my friend.She  still  regrets that  if her  father would stay normal with his kids they would be able to be something in life with their own choices.


                       If  we love  someone  we  give him  freedom of  choice!

Dear  friends  please stay happy and spread happiness  as  it is necessary  if you want to be Really  Happy in life!
Hugs and  best  wishes  for all of you .God  Bless  You  All!

  1. This is a marvelous post.

    Old friends are a treasure.

    I am 49 years old. I am still close with a group of friends that I met in collage around 1985. Several are like family to me.

  2. Our way of life, our path in life can be so different ...
    Interesting to read your post and about the difference with your friends.

    It is always good to keep in touch with old friends and meet up when time allows. So nice to see your photo's, I do like the shade of blue you are wearing.

    Your words "If  we love  someone  we  give him  freedom of  choice!" are important.

    Take Care

    All the best Jan

  10. I think it is a good thing that you meet your school friends when you go back to visit. My best friend and I have been friends for 50 years this year. That's a long time. It is very sad that that father caused his children to have problems by being overbearing and pushed them too hard. We cannot force people to do what we want them to do. Not even our children. This was a good post.

  19. Thank you for your comment on my blog.

    I am so sorry, that there are so many sad rules, for people, in your area/country. Little freedom of choice, in life work choice, and in marriage partners. At least for some...

  21. Baili, thank you for visiting this morning. It's always a pleasure! Oh yes, earth's good friend, and mine as well, is spring. I can not wait for her arrival next month. Winter is not my favorite time of the year nor is summer. I can't stand the extreme conditions but spring and her other cousin, fall are my favorite seasons. It's interesting you mentioned your friend's marriage. We watched an interesting and entertaining movie on Netflix called Meet the Patels. Although here in the west not a single person can imagine ever entering a pre-arranged relationship but you know while I was watching that film (I don't know how accurate it was to your culture) I began to see some merits to such a relationship. Of course, I would never impose or want such things forced on me but still I see the value in it. It's too bad that your friend and her husband didn't grow into their relationship as good friends as well as each others' soulmate. Have a wonderful day!

  23. Hello Baili, first thank you so very much for your visit to our blog (The Frog and PenguINN) and for your lovely comment which was much appreciated. I spent fully an hour this morning reading through so many of your blog posts and "meeting" your husband and 3 sons, parents, family, etc. You are such an optimistic person with kind words and thoughts. Regarding this post, I agree that long-term friends are indeed special and count myself fortunate to know a few for over 20 years.
    I plan to re-visit your blog and invite you also to stop in and visit our again as well.

  34. Hello Baili, lovely to see you with your friends from school. You are all beautiful ladies in your sea-colored dresses. It is always interesting to hear how people have overcome their circumstances and keep faith. We all have things we need to overcome and I truly believe our struggles are gifts that we learn great lessons from. The older generations held a firm grip with child-raising, but it was the ways of those times. Now we know better and can allow our children much more freedom of expression - a beautiful thing. Sending blessings and hugs xo Karen

  35. Nothing makes me happier than to be around old friends. It does help to bring peace to my heart and soul in a world that seems to do the opposite sometimes. You remind me to seek the things that put a smile on my face and comfort in my soul. Thank you for that.

  37. What a beautiful, heart-warming post, dear Baili.
    I became curious: Is it a coincidence you all wear the same (beautiful!) aqua colour in your clothes or is it connected to the season, for example?
    Big hugs!

  38. Dear Baili, Once again it has been uplifting to stop by Baili and I and read this latest post. My life experience confirms your wisdom about keeping the soul happy. I thought the photos you shared show the joy of getting together with friends. The photo of you, Kudija, and Shazi … The happiness shines through the smiles on your faces. Thank you for sharing these photos. I also appreciated your reflections on the seasons. Sometimes I am thinking that the Great Spirit sends us Winter so that we can fully appreciate Spring, Summer, and Fall! :-) If we do not know darkness, we will not appreciate daylight. Thank you, Baili, for sharing your blog and thank you for your kind comments on mine. Wishing you a happy weekend!

  39. Friends are such an important part of life, you are blessed to have your old school friends still. I really enjoyed reading about your visit. What a shame that your friends brothers have suffered so much much. I always try to remember that my children may not want to be what I would like to be, it is a privilege that they can choose to be what they want to be, I realise that and I am thankful that we are in a position to let them make their own choices. Have a lovely week. x

  45. Another inspiring post, Baili! I enjoyed the photos of your schoolgirl friends and learning something of their lives. My father pressured me to do well in school. My mother did too, but not as much as my father. They sacrificed everything to give all five of us good educations, right through university. My parents were often criticized for "wasting money" helping four daughters graduate from university. One of the best things they did was allow us to choose what we wanted to study. We all went on to establish productive careers and happy marriages. I am very grateful for all that my parents did to give me an opportunity for a successful and happy life.
