Reunions.

Ranjan suddenly announced last night that instead of his usual Saturday night trysts, he was off to a different locale to attend a reunion with some colleagues from a company that no longer exists but where all of them worked together fifteen years ago!

One of my old colleagues from my Bengaluru days is coming to Mumbai in April and has been trying to organise a reunion of old colleagues currently resident in Mumbai and Pune while he visits.

My daughter in law went for a girls night out with her colleagues from a company where she worked ten years ago.

I have been attending many reunions with my classmates when one or more of come to Pune and those here organise a lunch or dinner and invite the locals. Besides that, when I was in Delhi, one of my classmates there organised a lunch with Delhi classmates to meet up with me. We also regularly meet once a year at some resort or the other to which I have not gone except for one last year which was close by at Lonavala.

The point is that everyone seems to be attending reunions of all sorts all over the place thanks to the very important tool the internet being available now. Long lost friends are catching up with each other, and family and other associations are getting revived through such reunions.  I for one am glad to have been able to reestablish contacts with some old classmates and colleagues through such reunions.  How about you?

  1. My school days were very unhappy, so I have never attended a reunion. I do keep in contact with one school friend, by phone or in person when I am in Dublin. Ex work colleagues have faded in the mists of time. I now have a wide circle of internet friends and the majority of them I have met in real life, some several times and a few have actually stayed in my home. If I have a problem and mention it on my blog or facebook, I immediately have genuine offers of advice or help to sort things out. Last weekend I had the opportunity for a siblings reunion plus wives, the only one missing was my brother in Australia. We are fortunate that the sibling chain is still unbroken and at our age it is important to get together when we can and not just at funerals!

    1. Family reunions too have increased in frequency and more importantly, with modern gadgets and inexpensive links for video calls, distances have shrunk and bonds are getting stronger.

  2. i avoided my tenth standard class of ’89 22 yr reunion which was held a year or two ago. If anyone comes up with a college or university reunion, I’d probably avoid that as well 😛
