Random forays | Time, distance cannot ravage old friendships

I have a couple of friends who have always made me feel utterly chilled out in their company, over the decades. People in public life who have to put on an air and some layers necessarily because of the nature of their profile, but when their closest friends are around the years vanish and distances dissipate.
The most selfless forms of human relationships are friendships without pretences, agendas and jealousies. Our most delightful moments are often spent with friends who have no romantic or business-like inclinations, but are just there for us, anytime and every time we need them. (Represenatat)

Guest column | Making hay in muddled middle age

Standing at this crossroads of life, quietly crooning Malika Pukhraj’s eternal anthem ‘Abhi toh main jawaan hoon’ (I am still youthful), I came to the rude realisation that the world had already labelled me as old.
It was undeniable that I had hit middle age: I could no longer be called young, but I was yet to qualify as a senior citizen, and the energy to take on daunting tasks was intact, but overshadowed by the onslaught of age. (Representative Image/HT File)
