“ Beer pass korna Tinika!” said Sukriti. “You both will never change,” said Soumya. Three of them met after 3 years on the marriage of Soumya and Sagnik who are childhood lovers.The story starts where the trio and Sagnik along-with Sukriti’s fiancee sitting together at night before the marriage and taking a sweet trip to the past.
“Remember Tinika your first statement when you entered the class”, said Soumya. Tinika laughed and said “I remember everything..umm, Where the hell is my section dammit? wasn’t it this one!”
It is a story about the friendship of three girls and the twist and turns of their journey. So as Tinika walked into the classroom she was not at all interested to talk to anyone or rather she might have been scared to interact. She had just returned to this city after 17 years and this place ironically was her birth place although she was completely a foreigner. She had always travelled with her family for her father’s job and now she has returned back to the place from where she started. The first day of college was adventurous as well scary for her which basically passed by attending boring lectures. She didn’t want any close friends because of her past experiences and betrayals. She lost all hope in friendship.
The second day came, as usual, she acted hopelessly and didn’t talk to anyone but there were these two girls named Sukriti and Soumya who just passed a smile and she couldn’t resist but did the same. Soon the conversation started and as the time passed Soumya and Tinika became good friends and their mentality matched somewhere. But Sukriti was a bit different and she didn’t like the group which they belonged to so she decided not to adjust and stay alone perhaps. Somewhere distance was created. Unknowingly after a lot of dramas and arguments the tables got turned. Sukriti again started talking to them and gradually little did they know that they had already turned into sisters from just normal college mates. After college, there was not even a single evening that they didn’t talk. Assignments, projects, practicals classes brought them closer, acted as the stepping stones of their relationship. Unknowingly their friendship had attained this proximity. When people are in college, other than friendship another thing which makes college life happening is love stories and affairs. Correct me if I am wrong mates!
Soumya was madly in love with Sagnik and they were actually like a matured couple. While Sagnik was very immature but Soumya was an independent strong girl and her maturity was enough to control both of them. Sagnik had a typical relationship with Tinika as they were “so called enemies” and he always irritated the hell out of her. But still, she took all the pain because he was a guy with a golden heart and she believed nobody is perfect. She decided to adjust instead.
Things went well until Sukriti got a proposal from Manish the most responsible guy of the class. Sukriti considered him as a friend so she was shocked but then she couldn’t ignore his charm and got convinced and accepted the proposal. Those were the golden times of her life lived with the couples Tinika just forgot all her scary past. She didn’t need anyone now; she just knew these two girls make her complete. But where there is a good, bad follows. Manish had this in him which nobody knew. Time always shows you the truth hence there was a behavioural change in Sukriti. The other two couldn’t just make anything out of it. Sukriti now with time was made for Manish so she adjusted and compromised on every step. Time has increased her feelings and decreased his feelings. Sukriti tried to adjust her best and would always change herself to be perfect for him but Soumya and Tinika saw everything. He even went on to hitting Sukriti and verbal abusing.This turned out to be a regular part of their conservation but she absorbed everything and treated with love.
One day suddenly Manish broke up with Sukriti and she was stunned and shattered. She didn’t know what to do and she completely lost her senses. She cried and cried for days but we somewhere knew that our friendship can cure any scratch so this time also it worked. Soumya and Tinika acted as a backbone for her and gradually they were able to stand up on her feet. Whenever she saw Manish she couldn’t control her tears but she had two buddies one of whom wiped her tears and the other acted as her strength. With time she healed her cracks and now she was a different person who just knew how to enjoy her life without compromising. Years passed by and they got graduated. Now the story takes a leap of 3 years and they again meet on Soumya’s marriage. Now Soumya and Sagnik were getting married. The three girls couldn’t control their excitement. Sukriti landed with her fiance as now she is the technical manager of a famous company and was settled in Bangalore. Tinika, as usual, didn’t have anyone in her life and she was settled in Mumbai. The moment of the story when three of met first met in the airport.
Now Soumya and Sagnik were getting married. The three girls couldn’t control their excitement. Sukriti landed with her fiance as now she is the Technical Manager of a famous company and was settled in Bangalore. Tinika, as usual, didn’t have anyone in her life and she was settled in Mumbai. The moment of the story when three of them met first met in the airport where only their tears spoke and their mouth had no words. On the day of marriage, Tinika saw the guy whom she loved but never confessed during her college times because she was scared of trust issues. She was shocked and said “ Prateek!” but it was all planned by her two sisters like friends. She couldn’t move on from that guy so she could never ever love anyone. The guy on the other side couldn’t forget this girl but they just left on separate parts of the world. The guy came and just hugged Tinika and she couldn’t raise her hand to reciprocate but then she gained her senses. She loved him like anything so did the guy. The guy went on his knees and proposed her for marriage and she agreed when the two got engaged on the same day. One year passed by, now Sukriti was also married and both Soumya and Sukriti along with their better half were on their journey to Tinika’s marriage. Prateek picked both the couples and was on their way to their bungalow. As all of them stepped down the car, Tinika was super excited and everything was a dream for her. She ran to hug the other two but she didn’t know what was waiting for her. She overlooked the other side of the road and got crashed by a car. She was lying on the road with blood all over her body. And her two friends couldn’t move and believe what they saw. Their friend was lying on the floor, dead. Prateek became numb. Soumya and Sukriti sat beside her body and started crying, they were just shattered. They didn’t have the ability to say a word about what they were witnessing.
A part of them lying on the road. Tinika used to say all the time,”I want to see you guys when I die and want to laugh at your reactions”. The other two used to hit her hard for this.
But today her words had turned into reality. Tinika was dead. On the day of her marriage, her funeral was taking place. She was wearing her wedding lehenga and looked very beautiful, she had a certain peace on her face. Years passed by and it was Tinika’s 60th birthday how could her two best friends forget this day. Like every year this year also Soumya and Sukriti decorated Tinika’s house and celebrated her birthday as she was always alive for them always. Friend can die but a friendship can never die.
