Where is Gomathy?

Where is Gomathy?
Gomathy was my childhood friend. She had five elder brothers. I used to be very fond of 'elder brothers' those days.I was always after her to give me one brother. I offered her Five star chocolates, extra minutes on the rented bicycle etc for exchange of a brother - any brother - but an elder brother. It never worked out...

Now my question is where is Gomathy? We used to live in the same neighborhood. Went to the same school from Kindergarten all the way through our XII grade. We walked as one big group to and from school blocking the whole street all the way across... The last thing I remember of her, I went to show off my newly bought Kinetic Honda... That was in 1994! She was so happy for me.

After that somewhere somehow I lost her... I am sure she is now married and lives happily everafter. Hope I get to run into her one day. I have to thank her for one thing - for teaching me how to ride the bicycle...

Same way, Where is Chithra?
We had such fun filled days in our PG hostel. One evening we didn't like the dinner and didn't eat well. But as we were studying/chatting late through the night we were extremely hungry and didn't have any snacks. So we both tip-toed to the kitchen to get some left over chappatis in the middle of the night. The funniest part was as we were getting ready to jump into the kitchen from the dining hall opening we saw a BIG rat running inside the kitchen and got very scared. We started giggling uncontrollably but fearing the warden or the kitchen girls would wake up. That's one night I will never forget...

Where is she now? How are her sisters? How many children does she have? Is she still in Karur?

And finally, Where is Honey?
She was my hostel mate during my UG days in Bangalore. She was elder to me by a few years and was very kind to me always. She took me out for shopping, movies, restaurants - all at her own expense...I often wonder where she is.... how she is... Is she married? kids? Does she remember me?

If you happen to stumble upon them anywhere, please let them know I am looking for them long and hard... will you?

All the best in looking for them .. I m sure one day you will have you tried facebook or orkut or such social sites .. you never know :)

Thank you Bikramijit! FB, Orkut etc haven't helped much. The problem is that they were friends from before the email era, and with girls it is so difficult to find as their last name could have changed after marriage....

I am hopeful one day I will find them or better yet they will find me...
