A Letter from My Friend

Receiving a letter from a friend when you have all means of communication is so much fun. It had been almost six years without receiving a single letter. I received a letter from my BBF Xoonam. We chat on Facebook every day, we talk on phone, we meet and spend times together, yet nothing can beat that excitement of receiving a letter and going through it. Thank you Xoonam for writing to me and indeed it had been the best surprise ever.

It’s actually funny to receive such letter when you have all means of communication, but this is just to remind you of those good olden days. We never got a chance to post a letter to each other since back then we were unknown”. She jotted. Yeah! It’s true we never had that chance. However, your today’s’ letter made me live my schooling days for a moment. The first letter I received after so long year was yours and you can’t imagine my excitement here. I re-read your letter several times and still I can’t take my eyes off from those beautiful words. Your fat hand writing made me to go back to our college days. Gosh! I love your hand writing (seriously). You got a doctors hand writing. Thank you for choosing me to be the first person to write to after so long years. In the recent time I almost forgot letter writing and your this letter refreshed my mind. Kardinche my beautiful friend for that letter… it was a very special letter.

Back at school, I usually receive letter every month from my friends. I never delay to reply my friends and today that made our friendship alive and stronger. I would be saluting during our meal time to receive those letters. I still have those letters in my drawer. Sometime going through those letters can bring smile to your uneasy life. Thank you Xoonam for letting me ruminate over those crazy school days. I promise to surprise you with a reply one fine day. Just wait!!!

The Winter Sun

I always had a fond memories with the winter sun. As December makes its way towards 2013,  I could feel the winter sun shining upon me. The winter sun always reminds me of my days back at Haa.

The 1st of December, Sunday, I was outside my room in Mongar. The enormous and beautiful Sun was just above me and I was gazing the sun all alone... a nostalgic memories came flooding like a wild cataract. The warmth and feeling in the winter sun is very much different from the summer sun. The Happiness and excitement you feel in the morning when the sun rise and the sadness that touches your heart when the sun kisses the hills in the evening. The winter sun is always worth watching.

Back at Haa,  despite the cold weather , winter is always fun. Our Local Festival Lomba and The snowfall lights up our winter days. In the afternoon we would be  outside in the sun talking and playing. Those precious times are always remembered. I always love winter. For me it is the time when friends and families come together.

The winter sun is very close to my heart. I look at the sun and feel that my friends are shining upon me. It always gives me a time to remember my days at Haa and the people whom i love dearly. For next 3 months I will be enjoying the warmth of the winter Sun!!!
