Laura is my first chat friend. I know her for like 10 years now! We are not in touch as much as we would like thanks to the hectic work schedule. Anyways here is something i had written for her long back.

In a far off land
i hv a friend

In the land of kangaroos she stays
i hope to india a visit she pays

Her name is laura n her nick is sunshine
to know her the pleasure is all mine

Shes tall, pretty and smart
and has a generous heart.

I write to her when i am down and out
she peps me up to fight the bout

She understands me so well
at times i dont even hv to tell

She can fill my day with joy and laughter
i am always happy thereafter

I kn her now for a couple of years
and she knows my strength and fears

We have seen each other through glory and pain
my best wishes for u will always remain

I have loads of work to do
but when u need me i will be there for u

I hv her snap on my softboard at place
always i can see her smiling face

    Reetesh, 10 years back chances were that the person on the other end was a female if she claimed to be so. Today … πŸ˜€

    πŸ˜† yeah on the internet there is a goooood chance that its not a “female” one is talking to πŸ˜›

    But seeing that Kunal has been talking to her since 10 years, I am under the impression that they video chatted (which is the only way to know btw πŸ˜› ) and hnc he KNOWs that its a she.

    But yeah. the anonymity internet offers sure has sprung up very strange characters!

    Ohhhhhh Kunal πŸ™‚ That is so sweet. I have never had anyone write a poem for me before! Thank you.

    I am so glad that we did meet in that chat room all those years ago, and even tho it’s not as often as we’d like, we do still keep in touch. I also have your smiling photo on my corkboard at home, and your emails and kind messages always bring joy and happiness to my day.

    For all you cynics – I agree about the anonymity of the internet, however I assure you I am most definitely female!

    Kunal – the pleasure is all mine πŸ™‚ I hope one day to meet your smiling face in real life.

    Laura (aka Sunshine)

    lol @ Reetesh/Manan πŸ™‚

    Well 10 years back there were no portals. Met her on IRC. Yes i have seen her and spoken to her a few times.

    Back then were still the “innocent days” when guys were guys and didnt pretend to be girls πŸ˜›

    Hehe..btw I did believe that Sunshine was a girl.. and I JUST realised what manan meant by that comment πŸ˜› (tube light moment)

    I didn’t ask where you met her for myself to go and find my sunshine πŸ˜† but I just asked for the sake of conversation and you recollecting your memories πŸ˜›
