April 15

It’s her birthday today and I’ve deleted her phone number from my book.
She was the first friend I ever had, and we were inseparable.
They called us the Siamese twins.
Somewhere along the way, we grew apart.
I tracked down her number last year, and called.
She’s happily married and she told me that I had not changed at all.
She, however, has changed a lot.
We planned to meet, but she never called back.
It’s her birthday today and I’ve deleted her phone number from my book.

Happy Birthday Shikha.
I always remember you on April 15.

All you Bongs out there: Shubho Naubo Borsho (Quickly correct me if that is wrong.)

"I’ve DELETED her phone number from my BOOK" - A million years hence when someone unearths this sentence scribbled somewhere, he will guess it was probably written after computers came into existence, not before. Interesting how technology makes its presence felt in our speech, isn't it?!
