Allah Ke Bandhe...

When I think of him, the very first thing that comes to my mind is this song: Allah Ke Bandhe.. Oh my! What an amazing singer he is! While he sings, I just seem to be floating in a trance. His passion for music introduced me to some really good songs... I remember the day when we watched 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na...' together... He was pointing out the sounds of various instruments and I even remember him saying: "This is A.R. Rahman's first jazz!" I was and am awestruck with his knowledge in music...
 
How can I forget the time he made my birthday special by singing a song for me... Such a nice manner to make one's day!!! :-)
 
A very nice person to talk to, very open minded and down-to-earth... I have taken advice from him many-at-times and he has been very supportive towards me...
 
How can I forget the time we spent in Pondi having fun at the beach and also our adventurous journey to the railway station to catch our train back home!!!
 
As time flew, we met less and after some time even our correspondence through mails reduced... But still, every time I listen to Allah Ke Bandhe playing on radio, I am reminded of him...
 
Today, I bumped into him, rather he bumped into me... I came to know that today is his last day in office... I am filled with mixed feelings none of which I can express in words... A rush of emotions.. It's like someone close is going very far away... It's like we have lost the end of the string that's tied to a gas balloon... Let the balloon soar higher and higher and reach the summit of success... I wish you all the best Aditya... Miss you...!
