We, like every other bench-partner duo in the history of time, hated each other at first. I remember scrawling over your notebook- 'Ihateyousomuch' flanked by little horns. And I remember us fighting so much that the teacher made us both stay in the classroom during lunch for a week. It was supposed to be a punishment, but somehow, it ended up in us sharing our tiffins and pulling each other's leg.
After that day, we still fought like heathens and made people's lives hell, but somehow, as the lunch bell rang, you would flock to my side, piping hot idlis steaming in front of your face, as you eyed the heaps of biryani in my tiffin. And then? Enmity forgotten, we would lick the tiffins clean, until the bell rang again, and our fighting resumed.
Somehow, I grew to count on you nudging me out of my moodiness with your jokes and barbs, and the days you remained absent somehow seemed more gloomy than ever. In those days, strangely, I missed your booming laugh and Hardy Boys references more than your idli-sambhar and payasam. Strange, I know.
Over the years, you crept up on me, tillI knew the punch lines to all your jokes and the names of all your crushes before you knew it yourself. Ah, and the bench we shared. How I miss scrawling on them with you- song lyrics and names of Hollywood actors on my part, and logos of football clubs and Iron Man graffitti on yours. Those benches were the canvas of our school-days, the reminders of the days when fights could still be sweet and when a bar of chocolate would be enough to bring a smile to my face.
The truth is, I miss those days. I miss being the child I was, playing pranks with you (and on you, too). Now, all that remains of us are the worn desks of a little school, a bundle of texts on Instagram and loads of memories.
So the next time you visit, you little idiot, I will hug you bone-crushing hard before taking you home for some biryani. Of course, after eating your share of payasam.

У каждого уникального продукта есть секретный элемент, который добавляет изюминку, делает его загадочным, и все хотят разгадать его тайну... Это может быть невероятный абрикосовый пирог Вашей бабушки, который никто никогда не повторит. Это может быть крутая фотография. С одной стороны очевидны все объекты на фото и кажется не составит труда его повторить, но Именно ТАК никогда не получится. Это может быть история, которую никто лучше Вашего друга не расскажет, даже если в точности повторит слова.
Потому что во всем этом есть Душа, есть Энергия, которая была вложена автором этого кулинарного шедевра, картины или рассказа... И пока мы ценим и помним этих авторов, их шедевры никогда не потеряют той загадочности и уникальности. #story#fantasy#author#unique#elements
There's still time to give your ratings and feedback on potential cover designs for my first book "YOUR LEADERSHIP DIAMOND: How to transform the way you live your life, lead your people and leave a legacy". To give your feedback, follow the LINK IN MY BIO

A student recently gave me the inspiration to sell the handbooks I wrote for teaching Reiki classes, but unlike the other times I’ve heard students say that I’ve officially followed through with doing it this time 😅🙏
❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎
Reiki students, practitioners, and teachers can now order bound hard copies of “The Modern Handbook for Reiki” for levels Reiki I to Advanced Practitioner + Master 🤗
❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎
I created these handbooks when I started teaching Reiki two years ago and couldn’t find anything that was all-inclusive about traditional Reiki and also had additional modern tips, tricks, references, and information to help anyone explore and expand within their own practice. I wanted a “one-stop shop” for these books and they quickly became the only thing I use to teach with 💜 ❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎
I’m so excited about being able to self-publish these! If you’re interested in buying them to study with, or deepen your current practice, or to even teach your own classes with, feel free to reach out and ask me about them! You can explore each book more in-depth at firstname.lastname@example.org too ❤︎ ❤︎ ❤︎ #author#teacher#healer#modern#handbook#newage#reiki#holistichealing#wellness#balance#chakras#aura#cleanse#heal#lightworkers#explore#expand#twistedtree

Because it matters. Because days are long and years are short. Because true joy is worth the sacrifice. Because you are deserving.
Chase the thing that turns your struggle to peace. Don not be surprised when you find your greatest challenges and your greatest rewards there. #getafterit and it will turn to greet you.

This is such a funny, amazing romance novel, and each and every book by this author, I have not only read, but will recommend to everyone. I easily fall in love with each character
David Perlmutter neurologist is certainly one of my favorite author and researcher when it comes to field of health. His passion about prevention and neurological effectiveness is admirable. Both those book are fantastic. He gives you a deep understanding of world of microbes in your gut and how it affects your brain. How lifestyle choices can impact the fate of our brain. #brain#healthylifestyle#author#researcher#lifestyle#davidperlmutter

I miss my professor even today. Makes me regret I never kept in contact with her. She was sweet, but knew when to be bitter to get the results out of you. I love you teach, this "student" is still far from being a master. But, I'll never stop no matter what! Thanks for all the motivation and inspiration, and may your days be fulfilled with success and awe!
