If there's one word that comes to mind when I think of her, that word would be 'Powerful'. Mansi Trivedi, her name stands out just as well as her presence does in a packed room full of people waiting for things to happen. In this playground full of people, Mansi is the one who makes it all happen. Ever so friendly, ever so pretty and ever so energetic- if this World was our Kitchen, she's the kind of magnet that only a few would be lucky enough to find on their fridge.
If I had to put our similarities in order, the list would be endless, and frankly- i wouldn't have the patience to write, Mansi wouldn't have the patience to read. For those who are reading this and who haven't heard her name before (which i highly doubt), Mansi Trivedi is that girl who would be able to talk about anything you throw at her. If she's interested, she'd drive the conversation to a new level; and if she isn't interested, she'd try not to show it, but you would find her eyes slowly glancing away into the openess behind you. The moment you find Mansi disengaged from the conversation, it means only one thing: You have failed to impress.
I can relate so much to this behavior that i know the reason behind this 'disengagement'. We are on this constant quest to search for new things in this ever short day, in this ever short Life. Most people tend to 'glide' into a field of conversation, and stay there until they've harvested all the ideas from it. Mansi won't have patience to wait for this to happen. She intends to stay on top of everything, fly from one field of conversation to another, just to stay fresh, and she will feed only on the fresh.
We love Mansi for this freshness she brings with her. Extremely entertaining, and hard to impress. What makes her sweet is her intent to keep people together, with an unbiased opinion of anyone. She may have had her moments of judging, but she knows herself that it wouldn't last for long. Another meetup is all it takes to break the ice; she loves you just as much as you love her.
I've already gone way ahead of my stipulated length on my new project of profiling my friends, but it still feel's like i'm only half done.
Here's a few fun facts that i've learnt about Mansi:
- She loves books, she's open to all kinds of authors, and if she had a place to make her 2nd home, that place would be Blossom's Book store, Bangalore. But if she had it her way, a Starbucks should be just across the road.
- She loves a good wine, with slow music and sitting by her balcony. That's Mansi. If i can sketch an image with Mansi, it would be at her balcony, swirl and sip on the cold Cabernet, listen to a slow track from the Dewarists.
- She loves going out, and make every outing count, even if it meant saying 'hi' or doing a crazy dance with random people.
- She has the best expressions any aspiring actress could wish for. Our secret ambition is to someday be part of a Bollywood movie dance, even an extra would do.
Mansi, please stay as crazy as this forever, and let time remember YOU as the one who knocks..!
