Most of our college batch of 1988 is turning 50 in a few months. One of my batchmates’ wife decided to put together a video where family and friends wish him. His close friend requested me to help in contacting all the hundred-plus people in our batch. I agreed and posted a personal message with a group link to everyone.
I remember him as a cute, decent introverted guy. Very few knew him. He is now working in a hospital in the UK and has a beautiful family with three kids.
Well, the deadline for video submission went past without much response. So, l posted a motivating reminder along with my video, which included some memories. Soon, there were more than 25 wonderful videos. Some people were in hospital scrubs, some with pets etc. It was beautiful to see each friend in their present location and circumstances with their characteristic way of expression. The final version of the video was 30 minutes long and amazing. I was happy to be instrumental in some way. I have attached a screenshot from the end of the video.
Friendship should be celebrated!
