We are far away from our friends…speed approximately 120kmph like a supersonic wave (heavy terms: P) and here I am in the back seat of the bike (only one thought was going through my mind why so fast buddy what’s the thrill ???) but hey you should not ignore the passion my friend has to reach up to that speed with his bike (Name!!! hahaha I only the color red and white…it’s kind of sports bike). And how I should I describe him matching helmet with the bike (like a power ranger one), knee and elbow guards. How can I forget his jackets and shades (Please don’t mind the choice of color) and this friend who was riding the was Aadarsh Bisen. This was the only version of Adarsh 1.0 there are more to come.
I really didn’t remember when we became friends no special story, no tragedy nothing. We just had a conversation or so and yes, we are friends by then (it is that simple to do friendship with him). So, let me take you through his journey …be ready to laugh, cry and to give out a pose for next picture (he is a professional photographer…: P).
Roll No. 1
We all live in a world where we want to be best or to be called one and at times we subject ourselves to a Numeric number ‘1’ (my birth date btw). But in this case, I see no advantage of being Roll No.1 in a classroom of 60-65 students. And then when suddenly faculty shouts roll no. 1, and our young friend dreaming of some venture, sitting at the first bench was not even aware of saying “yes” hahaha (he was same biker friend bisen). And the moment he realizes it was already rolled no. 5(and everyone was like how can you forget that..:P).This was the story of each class and lab we had at that time(oh the best time of our life…college days 😊).
The second major disadvantage of being No.1 (especially for aadarsh) was that situation where the first most likely question asked by external was:
“Beta kya padh kea aye ho?”
And our clueless bisen thinking of ye kon se subject ki baat kar rahe hai…(hahahha) but hey he does handle the situation well and then that celebrity walk he has shown up fearless, confused and cool (like he didn’t get it man…: D) made everyone even get scared and terrified. Everyone just rushed up to him asking “Kya Poocha ??” (and everyone was interested in the questions…: P). I always feel that it’s kind of unfair to expect so much from him and especially when he was not doing something of his own interest (like engineering ☹).
But hey that’s the simplicity and humbleness of him, that even knowing all of that he never disappoints, he was always ready to fight that battle and come out of it like everything was fine. This really made me realize that the person who has all the answers is not the one who should be entitled with No.1(that happens mostly) but the one who has taken up the challenge knowing the fact that he is going to lose it anyways deserves it.
And that’s why I can proudly say that he is my friend “Aadarsh Bisen” (my roll no. 1 😊).
Last Minute Revision
We all are standing outside of the exam hall someone was doing his fifth revision, someone was sharing his own knowledge and expertise, someone just wants to remember what they have learned. Some are preparing some tricks which will help out in the exam. Then comes Mr. Bisen asking for help so that he could be able to write something relevant to the topic or question.
Oh, he has reached out to the wrong person Akshay Nanda (Mr. Reviser…: P):
AB: Bhai ye wala topic thoda samjha na please?
AN: Dekh bhai, ye toh tab samjh aayega jab tu phele ke 2 topic ko bhi padega.
AB: 2 aur??
AN: Abe zada time nahi lagega abhi samjhata hu main bus ye revise karlu (only 5 min left to go in the exam hall come on Mr.Nanda).
Finally, the confused bisen reaches out to the perfect help he needs at the last moment Anubhav mishra:
AM: Dekh bhai zada dimaag mat laga. Ye esaa hai, ye wesa hai bcoz baki parso jo movie dekhi thi uski story aur ye diagram: P
AB: Ho gaya itna hi, ye to easy hai. Abhi kitna ho gaya?
AM: Ye ho gaye tere 2-unit complete baki unit Aastha se pooch lena.
AB: per kab?
AM: Abe exam main bhai. Pass ho jayega to chal andar abhi: P
And trust me he always come out of exam hall very happy after that saying bhai maine toh 4-unit ka likh diya. Aur ek supply bhi leli wo Nema ke pass ek extra thi na…: P
Yes, he is that super cool and easy to go towards his life. But life is not that simple and neither the situations that we faced every day in life (remember to have some tissues before you move further).
And He cried & cried…
The day was unusual, the situations were quite disturbing I am talking about our lives at that point in time. Everyone was busy in something or the other project, assignments, campus placement (college days were near to an end). And then I sudden see Aadarsh sitting on the Chair and crying (Mayank & Akhil were already with him), we all also reach out there. I am not able to understand what’s going on here. I exactly remember everything –
We were in our computer lab and all the students from CS1 and CS2, morning time (we were waiting for lecture to get started) and suddenly this happened. He was crying hard, loud like he has lost someone or something very close to his heart later I realize he was lost, lost in the darkness where there was no light of hope, happiness, love anything (he’s from Balaghat, he lives on rental basis in Jabalpur alone yes). I have not seen any of friends crying that openly (maybe I am lying but hey) he has no words to explain what was going on with his thought process. I don’t know what to say or If my words would really help him to recover. The conversation was somehow like this:
Aadarsh: Crying out loudly. Main kisi kaam ka nahi hu yr. Kuch nahi aata yr mujhe kuch nahi. Kya kar raha hu pata nahi(words are also getting fumbled).
Mayank: Giving him a tight hug. Aacha thik hai bas koi baat nahi. Tu roo mat atleast. Apan sochte hai kuch.
Referring to everyone, dekh abhi sablog ki life main hai tension, Akhil anubhav aur merko company main select hona hai, Nanda ko GRE karna hai, Tiwari ko GATE dena hai sablog essa karenge to kaise chalega kya.
I know he was trying his best to get him out of the situation. I am just thinking what should I say how to tell him whatever he was going through was tough and we understand that but only he was the one who has to face the situation.
Aadarsh: Main kya karunga life main aage kuch nahi kar paunga.
I dont remember the time and how that day just passed. We all are also worried about him.
Mayank: Mujhe lagta hai kisine kuch to bola hai isko pata nahi abhi.
That day has really shaken me up, not bcoz my friend was crying too hard. But by understanding that usually, we all have that tendency to hide our real self to us only (inside) and showing out the smarter, gentler and simple human being (outside). But that is not the case always. We all have our own struggles and we have to fight it. The best thing I found about aadarsh was that he has the courage to cry out loud in front of his friends (which really signifies the faith he has in all of us) but hey that’s not the end here. After all, he has found his passion and moves ahead in life.
My Photographer Friend (my fav tagline that’s why I am using it here too…: P)
He always knew it but sometimes it just takes time to reach our goals or even to find them. But hey finally my friend has found it.
Photography, oh yes that’s his real passion and now he has that perfect camera to capture the best moments of his life’s… DSLR (thanks to his Bade Bhaiya for this). And the moment he got it, I can see that spark and liveliness into his life that has been lost somewhere in the middle days.
So the best part is that he is not a camera expert initially (like the one who knows all the technicalities and technique to take a picture) but he has that creative mind to decide what exactly looks good and how to do it differently.
There are many advantages to have a DSLR friend ohh the female friends just got double, we have pictures captured for each and every moment of our life. More likes on social media (apni dslr wali dp pe …: P).
But the camera is not the only reason for the huge friend circle he has, it was his friendly nature, always ready to help kind of attitude and hey you should Smile bcoz by now 5 to 10 photos were already clicked if you are with bisen.
I have literally seen him living with the camera day in day out. He really loves clicking pictures of unusual stuff (beautiful girls too: P) with his camera whole long day.
So finally, he has completed his Engineering and then moved forward to do what he really wants to do in life. (see it’s that simply follow your heart).
