I picked Rohan for the first few to write about in my blog, not because he and I are such great friends, but for the fact that he'd probably think otherwise if I wouldn't! I've found people with a clear conscience most deadly when it comes to having their emotions heard. Rohan is that one with crystal clear emotions. I'm not even sure if he'd mind this blog and the extent of the repercussions to follow, but I'm willing to take that chance. So here goes..
Rohan's by far the most curious person I've met. His habit to bring up questions and research on any matter have always yielded information that he loves bringing to the table. I haven't figured the origins of his need-to-know stem, but I have my own theories since I'm very similar in this aspect. I love that feeling of being the fore-runner to knowing and spreading information that's fresh. Why? Maybe it's the credit we get for sharing, or for the sheer thrill of knowing something that you don't, or getting to see that look in your eyes when we tell you something new. But along with that, Rohan's also been one of the most trustworthy people I've shared my experiences with. Be it anything, Rohan would love to talk about it and share his own account to make you feel that he's right there with you.
From all the conversations that happen in my World, i can say that Rohan is involved in more than half of them with an unbiased opinion. If you say something in a packed room full of people, you can be sure that Rohan's always listening. The guy who loves being around people, also loves his space and can work for hours and hours on his laptop, sitting by himself at the coffee shop. Make no mistake, his WhatsApp and FaceBook Messenger's always on. He wouldn't want to miss out, but he's still working on a presentation and paying his credit card bills online- all at once. You can count on him being there for any occasion: a quiet evening or a mad game night or a ridiculous theme party. He'll tell you he's excited and he's right around the corner buying supplies for the party.
He loves trying something different, something new all the time. Maybe something that's on the Menu, or a TV show that nobody really watches, or he'll sport a bright yellow pair of sunglasses. But then again, he will always ask you for feedback. He's eternally impatient, and needs something to do. I've never seen him staring blank at the ceiling. He can make-do with whichever situation he's put into, also make a meme out of it and post it to us, just to make us laugh. Pssst.. he may deny this one: Just like Chandler, he's a dropper.
Even though I'd say we're the best of friends, our ideologies don't necessarily match. Some of them we learnt by talking to each other, the others we learnt the hard way . Our dance styles don't match either. If I'm that guy going nuts on the dance floor, he'd rather be that guy standing at the bar, suited up, expensive scotch in hand, chatting up with the ladies. That's his domain, brilliant at striking great conversations.
The best things in life are done with the people who really matter. Rohan's that guy anyone would want to have around and share their best times with. When you are in company with someone who's as genuine as this guy, your good times will keep rolling and your bad times would seem just like another page in your book.
Rohan, It's been only a few years since I've known you, and experienced some of the best times. You are a force that's hard to ignore, and so easy to love.
