I never thought that I would be in such a situation.
Its not that I dread being alone but just that I just realised that I have numerous friends and well wishers but not that one friend ( most have childhood friends) who would be there for you whenever and wherever, who you know all your life... I am not cribbing here but as a kid I had to tag along with my dad wherever he got posted and thus I know many people... some of them became very good friends in the short span of time we were together...but then we drift apart...years and locational problems.. Never thought of it at that time...was too busy making new friends...being popular in the new school..etc etc
Yeah there are few very special people in my life...but again the distance plays the devil...So when I feel like going shopping... I have to go alone ( which by the way is okay the first few times, but not always). Just a walk around the corner seems long and boring when you have been doing that alone for weeks.
The last time in Bangalore too I was haunted by the same obnoxious feeling. This time I thought it would be different...but looks like we are going down the same road... but this time there is no running away...
