Thought I would celebrate the Pahela Baishakhi meeting up with a certain someone among many others but no it did not happen that way. Expectations cost high. You do not have many options, believe it, live with it, deal with it or die with it. I don’t know how exciting I could have made the time for her but it was an open wish. We did not make a plan but I asked her several times on the phone. She knew I wanted to meet her up. She had all the time to meet her other friends but what hurt me was that in spite of apparently becoming a nice pair of friends, I was not there in her mind on an occasion like the first day of the New Year. Or at least that is how it appeared. ‘It is not like that’ isn’t it?
