The Greens Gang

  1. We were not a gang from the word go. Like all relationships, being friends takes a lot of work.
  2. It is not important for us to speak/chat/message every day.
  3. We continue to be friends, despite our differences, especially the political ones. Once in a while, a whatsapp post triggers off a heated debate until someone steps in.
  4. We cannot be more disparate in terms of personalities.
  5. When we meet, conversations can encompass sports, religion, children, science, conquests of the past, the shares that plunged, some book that was read, any song heard recently, memories of some trip, the political scene and what could have been. A few topics are evergreen and a must in all our meetings — e.g. Dinya’s Aadhaar
  6. When we meet, the liquor flows — as do the gaalis, packs are smoked, songs play softly, the ribbing is good natured, we gamble sometimes. Games when played are terribly competitive, some tantrums would put McEnroe to shame.
  7. We revel in our successes and support each other when we fail. We agree to disagree. We fight and then make up faster than Piyush’s train.
  8. We make an effort to stay in touch; very important this one.
  9. There is not a moment’s hesitation to reach out. A kind word, a frank opinion and help is always readily available
  10. All our holiday planning sessions begin with grand plans of Las Vegas, Bangkok and almost always end up in Goa. This year we went to Karjat.
