This was a wonderful space to hang out in and share our thoughts! But now we've all moved on and simply left our memories behind :-) ...

23rd August: Aakash (Vyom) ... I'd heard of him long before the invite to join BUF was sent out to him :). I'd seen him on Harjee's blog and then read his blog (silent reader I must add). Needless to say, I was more than impressed with the way he expressed himself. I do envy people who can write so well! :)

And getting to know him since has been a total pleasure and just the kind of thing that makes BUF so special. Meeting him in our first BUF Meet here in Delhi simply convinced me of the fact that he's truly a wonderful guy to know and call a friend. We (Uttsy, Suchi and I) later talked about just how cute his smile is and how we felt so totally comfortable - that day - with him. I'm sure later when he met up with fellow BUFers again, they felt the same way :) ! Personally, I find him a wonderful listener...coz the one time I had my longest conversation with him helped me a lot. I don't think I ever got to thanking him for simply being patient and hearing me out :) ...

I'm sure everyone here at BUF will join me in wishing him ...


Hope your day is the best ever and you have a wonderful year ahead Aakash!!!


Ps: Publishing this an hour ahead of midnight coz I just might fall asleep :P ... school day tomorrow! And then again I don't want to get in late in the morning!! Requesting people to hold off on publishing any new post till lunch time tomorrow or leave your post in drafts and we'll (admin) post it....Thanks all :)


  1. happy birthday vyom!! have a gr8 day

  2. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR.AKAASH HANDSOME! :) ooh lala look at ya!

    Beautiful dedication there from Ish. Very well written.

    **Personally, I find him a wonderful listener

    Ish I havent even met Aakash in real but I do feel that way abt him too...he is a GREAT listener...a CARING friend...a FEELING humanbeing. Cos even when I havent known him for too long, he has been there for me, understood me, come to check if Im doing ok etc - that even some long-term friends wudnt do.

    He is truly a great guy...someone who has RESPECT for others. He never hurts ppl's feelings too. And that is rare in this very egoistic world.

    AAKASH is just like the sky...a beautiful experience...a fresh view...a sphere where u can fly with no fear.

    Have a great day mate! U deserve every happiness in the world. HUGGGGGGGGGGZ!

  9. Hey Aakash :)

    You are as young as your faith,
    as old as your doubt,
    as young as your self-confidence,
    as old as your fear,
    as young as your hope,
    as old as your despair.

    Wishing you a very Happy Birthday!!

    Hope you have a fab day!!!

    I don't know you much yet ... but looking forwarding to knowing you better :)

    Lots of love and wishes,

    To wish you birthday cheer.
