A few weeks ago, on a chilly July morning, my phone woke up from its deep slumber and chimed for my attention. It was a WhatsApp notification from one of my friends, Sid, who was about to catch a flight that weekend to make his first trip to Australia. The conversation went something like this.
Sid: Hey Harsh, how are you dear?
This friend of mine has a nasty habit of calling everyone “dear”, it sounds ridiculous but I ignored it anyway.
Me: Hey Sid, I am good, man. How about you?
Sid: What to tell you, man! I am overwhelmed by the travel preparations. I am flying in two days and yet to finish a lot of things. God knows how I am going to finish everything!
Me: Take it easy, bud.
