Friendship Day, 2016

Friendship Day, 2016
I have a ship-full of friends to remember today, when I am writing about “Friendship Day” for the first time. A memory recall brings before me faces from two primary schools (One at Onchiyam, Vadakara and another at Purameri both in Kozhikode District), Kadathanad Rajah’s High School, Purameri where I studied between 1952 and 1959, Government College, Madappalli (1959-63), Government High School, Meppayur where I worked as a teacher for about a month, Regional provident Fund Commissioner’s Office, Accountant General’s Office and Reserve Bank of India, Thiruvananthapuram (1963 to 1986), Reserve Bank of India, Mumbai and Nagpur (1986-2003) and members of several social groups with whom I have interacted, especially post-retirement. They are in addition to several others who came in contact and left sweet memories of friendship.
I will not try to measure the value of the support and love I received from my friends by trying to search for words to say “THANK YOU”. Still, I want to acknowledge that without the helping hands of friends, minus the encouragement I received from friends, I would not have survived to record this note.
