Why Tirunelveli is "The City" of the world!!!

"In life, we meet a lot of people, but make friends with few... In those few, some touch our life in such a way, that their presence is felt in their absence too..."

Ya! You guessed it right. A regular SMS message from one of the umpteen number of friends of mine...

But................
This message was different.....

Reason:- It was from one of my very close friends who has been with me right from my school. He for some reason saw it fit to send this message. (He has never forwarded me a SMS before). To cut the story short, this message made me thinking. Made me to understand why wherever i go, Tirunelveli will always be my city of the world!!! It made me to think of the awesome friends that God has gifted me in my childhood.

Those of us who had seen the Microsoft Ad would accept that it is the people who differentiates the organizations and gives it the competitive edge. In the same way, it is my friends who differentiates Tirunelveli from the rest of the world. It is because of them, Tirunelveli will be The City of the World (at least for me). Each person was unique; Each person was different; And Each person was great;

Jerry, the creative
Thirumalaiappan, the interrogator
Dalton, the born leader
Karthick, the passionate(i.e. short tempered)
Veera, the helper
Raffic, the joker
Nishanth, the *** Doctor
Arun, the religious
Krishna, the mimicker
Balaji, the silent(to the extent of being dumb)
Sabeela, the match maker
Vivek, the nerd
Chock, the handsome(Always be our envy whenever we walk near a girls school)
And the list goes on....................................................

And importantly, the 'n' number of beautiful girls whom we never noticed!!!!

Ya! I know every school has its own Tom, Dick and Harry. But they did not have a Dalton, they did not have a Thiru, they did not have a Jerry, a Karthick, a Veera, etc.. Most importantly, they did not have a ROBIN!!!

Tirunelveli Zindhabad! Tirunelveli Vazhga!

to be an IIMite hailing from tirunelveli itself is something laudable, and to be fiercely protective of its identity is only more so... nice post...

and reg my post... it was more of an account of the days events, hence the overcrowding of topics... :D
