We all know that "There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship". This post is dedicated to all those people who have those real friends & got the gift of true "Yaar" in their life.
Recently Zee TV has announced a new chat show " Yaaron Ki Baraat" which is all about celebrating friendship, coming for the first time on Indian Television. The two hosts (Ritesh & Sajid) will spill the beans on the celebrity friendship & will put them on various tests, through the series of challenges & task in a unique way. This show is very special for people like me & it kind of reminds me of my good old days of my college & friendship. As Zee TV takes us on a journey with some quirky tales of friendship, sweet little anecdotes about our friendship & besties, the moments that brought us closer to each other, here I am with my story of my closest Yaar "Meena".
To start with my story, let me tell a little bit about my best friend " Surendra Meena" aka Meena.
How we met is really interesting, this was during my last semester of engineering & I was looking for an internship just to get some extra money & exposure in the industry before I get graduated. I applied to an E-commerce company & got selected as Business development executive. It was my first day of internship & we all gathered for an early morning meeting with all other MBA interns. There was one guy who was interacting with our manager regarding the leads for the day & ongoing deals. The manager asked him to take one of the interns with him on the business meet for the day & to my surprise , he asked me to join him for the meeting. That is where we interacted for the first time. We introduced each other. He was simple & down to earth. On our way to the meeting ,we exchanged contacts & learned about each other. The meeting was successful & we cracked the deal & brought the cheque in the evening. Our duo got appreciated by the marketing lead & he told me to join Meena in all his leads going forward.

This is where our friendship started, from a colleague to a true friend the whole journey was fantastic. We started meeting outside working hours as well. Soon we were popular in the company for cracking deals with my technical skills & his marketing knowledge. I was being promoted as Business development manager, all thanks to Meena for his support & regular feedback. We became best buddies in the office & even out of the office. I was staying away from family & he was staying with his brother in a hostel. We started staying overnight at each other's place, partying enjoying after working the whole day. After sometime he introduced me to his family & they were really cool & fun-loving people, soon we planned a road trip with his cousins & some common friends in the new year.
I still remember that was the best new year I have celebrated in my whole life. Now after 6-7 years down the line, we are still close friends though we are living in different cities, he started his own business, I got placed in MNC working as a consultant. We still talk to each other on a regular basis. Whenever I go to my native place, I split my journey & go to his city, just to meet him. We spend the whole day, remembering all the fun, masti we did together. We share all our Up's & Down's with each other. If I have to quote my friendship with Meena in one sentence I would say " A friendship founded on a business is better than a business founded on a friendship".
Guys I am looking forward to this new chat show" Yaaron Ki Baraat". This is the best way we can celebrate the friendship. Revisit the old time & enjoy those old memories.You guys can watch this on Zee TV, it is going live on 8th October at 8 PM. Hope you will like this exciting show with the line-up of super celebrity friendship & all them sharing their untold stories. Ask your friends to join this celebration of friendship with Yaaron Ki Baraat & crazy host (Ritesh & Sajid Khan)
