How I met ….My Soul Sis!

It’s been three years since she’s moved to the home of the ‘Big Apple’ and we have hardly met each other ever since but the physical distance between us simply does not act as a restraint in our bond with each other. Every time we talk, we can pick up a conversation from where we left the last time. It’s as easy.

Ratika and I have known each other for almost eight years now. Of course it’s no comparison to people who have been friends since they were children but what we lack in the number of years, we make up for in the connect. And to top it all, we have superb telepathy. I call out to her in my mind and she calls!
It’s not like we instantly liked each other and jumped into gossiping and giggling. You see, we worked together and she had joined office before I did and was excellent at what she did. I was told, when I joined, that she manages the shop floor sternly and well, I was not one to be snubbed. I hated the fact that there was someone who I did not report to but wanted the work done on time, as required. What business does she have? I used to think, often. In fact the first time I introduced her to my husband, I spitefully introduced her as ‘being my boss’ (I meant she’s bossy). To my surprise, she responded with ‘I ain’t no boss, I just help my friends around.’ That took my heart away. Within a few months, she quit for higher studies.
This marked the beginning of many days of midnight calls, long hour chatting and sharing striking events from the past. There was not a thing I was ever uncomfortable discussing with her and she reciprocated with equal emotion. We knew we were bonded for life and even a year of complete absence for each other did not matter the next time we touched base.

Ever since, times have brought us even further. Amongst giggles and gossips are concerns and faith. We look out for each other and save each other from a bad day. We have little girls now that keep us chatty about their cute little tricks and other parenting stuff. Most of all, we are together because we have shared smiles and tears as easily as we have shared mirth and pain. Between us, settled in different continents, is a vast expanse of geographical divide, but our arms stay snug in embrace forever.
