18 Reasons Why she is Crazily Amazing

Riddhi Bhattacharya

Dear readers, today, the 10th of October 2020, marks the auspicious 18th birthday of my best friend, Neha Kiran Parab and she is a bundle of stupidity and insanity but I love and adore her for each and every characteristic that makes her unique. Here’ 18 reasons why I can tolerate her despite her madness!

I. Familia

Neha and Riddhi

Not to be cliché or so, but she is literally my family. From just barging into either of our houses, conspiring against each other with the other’s mom to calling up an aunt to chat her up about her new born baby, I don’t think there are any barriers that restrict us. She is a family I have known and prized for over the last 7 years, and just like family, I ain’t letting her go! Also, aunty loves me more 😉

II. Inside Out

Neha and Riddhi

Now, Neha and I have our abundant share of inside jokes (which I won’t be revealing) and they are the most hilarious I have ever had. Our entire group, JARNiNe (as it was called then as a short version for all our names joined together), has shared so many amazing and comical experiences together that it is so hard to keep track and whenever we do our recollection gist, all hell breaks down and tears come rolling down! By the way Neha, you’re still going to be the first to get married and have kids!

III. Strength and Independence

Neha and Riddhi

Neha is by far the most strong and independent person I know. Despite her emotional softness and vulnerability to odd things, she comes out stronger and bolder every single time(obviously a little thanks to me for supporting, I guess?), no matter what tragedy strike. She has a persevering sense of achieving and staying independent which makes her so special. From a very young age, I have had the absolute privilege of seeing her grow and nurture her siblings and those around her into amazing people and somehow her strength and independence rubs off those she comes in contact with.

IV. Backbones and Spines

Surprisingly and miraculously I have always found myself dialing her number whenever I was melancholy, furious, joyous, or even excited. She lights up the world with a million stars in her unique, “oh Riddhi, you idiot” way that instantly makes me smile if I was low and laugh if I was already beaming with happiness. She is the backbones and spine every best friend ought to be, to fight battles and support through each malady.

V. Coincidentally a Coincident

Neha and Riddhi

Despite my record of having best friends, Neha and I have always had this unique coincidence pattern that has been unachievable by anyone else! She just knows… What I have to say, what I am thinking, what I plan to do and worse, things I have not even predicted! She just knows. I might just call her up one day realizing her number is busy and I text her saying, “Call me” when at the very second she will text be back the same. Our coincidental coincidences are absolutely bizarre and often scary, but it’s us!

VI. Laughters and Tears

Neha and Riddhi

Just like any other best friend duo, we have had our fair share of laughter and tears that just make it so special. I believe sharing a laughter and exposing your flaws and tears to one, lets you be vulnerable before the person and just makes the bond so much more stronger. Can definitely say that has been us no?

VII. Surprises

Neha and Riddhi

From surprising her for her farewell and birthday evenings to her coming over for my birthday during the pandemic, our surprises have been special elements to our friendship and given each of our lives the multitude of chances to enjoy, relish and absolutely love each other’s presence even more. Also, credits to both our moms for being secretive enough to help organize each other’s surprises and keeping it hidden from us!

VIII. “I know Better”

Now, this is where it gets on your nerves. Fair and deserving warning, NEHA IS ALWAYS CORRECT! YOU ARE WRONG! SHE ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT’S BETTER! So what you should do when she says “I know better” is just to retire, cause trust me, you ain’t winning that winning that battle with her. Speaking from over 3000 days of experience….

IX. Fishy Methi Puris

As a bong, I surprisingly detest fish, and guess who likes it? My Marathi best friend! So a staple dish my mom is always keen to make when Neha is around is Fish and worse of all after she goes back home, I have to eat the remainder because come on, in a brown household, you ain’t just throwing away the food! Yet, luckily for me, her mom also makes these splendid Methi Puris(Indian Dish) which are absolutely mouth-watering and a dish Neha has never had much of a taste for, so I guess it’s only fair enough!

X. Debate and Public Speaking

Neha and Riddhi

Regarding this, I doubt I have to say much as she is literally my partner at this. Ranging from nationalism debates to technology, bring anything on the table and as long as Neha and I are on the same side, honey, you ain’t taking the victory home! Havoc wrecks when we are on opposing ends and don’t even get me started on how that ends……

XI. Science and Writing

From hating on Biology but equally loving every other aspect of Science and Technology to blogging(because we learned someone used to, JARNiNe, where you at 😉 ), Neha and I have swum across oceans and developed our knowledge and talents at it respectively. Our collective interest in writing and science has led us to lead, teaching, and empowering each other in both fields. From getting articles proof-read to discussing science project ideas, it’s a collective genius!

XII. Betty and Veronica

Neha and Riddhi

Now, Riverdale-haters, I suggest you skip this and move on to the next point. Rest of you, thanks for sticking around. So Neha and I are actually B and V type personalities in real life and somehow are great fans of Riverdale. Although sometimes I do feel I am more the Betty than Veronica and she Veronica than Betty, once a label’s been made, we stick to it!

XIII. KKR vs MI

Now, this is one of the fiercer debates and fights we have. Her representing Mumbai and MI and me representing Kolkata and KKR never goes well when the two teams are playing against each other. From fights to arguments, it’s a never-ending session, until one of our phone’s batteries die off. By the way, here’s me telling you something I have never said before, “You’re a better side!

XIV. Sports and Physical Attributes

Neha and Riddhi

Cricket, Basketball, Jogging, Running, Badminton, Kho-Kho, Swimming, Sword-Fighting (is that the same as fencing?), Volleyball, and probably every other existing sport – Neha’s played it and she’s played it with glory and victory. Me? Oh no, I spectate! As much as I hate sports (except Badminton), she loves it twice as much! From yoga to marathons to sports, she leaves no physical activity out of her range, and what’s marvelous is the beauty with which she excels at each! Nevertheless Neha, I have started Yoga, if that counts! 🙂

XV. Dancing with a Stranger

As much as I love dancing, there ain’t no one who’s got the love for dance and the stamina to dance forever. From wearing a pink mini skirt with polka dots and dancing like a witch, to wearing saree and dancing on stage, Neha nails every move! Those hips don’t lie and would always be ready to shake a leg with you, whenever, wherever, however!

XVI. Manali/Spain?

Like every Bollywood Maniac, the best friends trip to either Manali or Spain has been on JARNiNe’s list as well, thanks to Yeh Jawani hai Deewani and Zindagi na Milegi Dobara! To date, we have never been able to decide between either of them and it’s a never-ending debate, but wherever we go, traveling together before the first one amongst gets married is something I am looking forward to!

Neha and Riddhi

XVII. Gossip

Hate me, shame me all you want but I do enjoy my fair deal of gossip and who better to gossip with than your best friend? The endless episodes of ranting and gossiping about others and incidents that have recently taken place in either of our lives is one of the contributing factors to our 4 hour long midnight calls, and oh what I would do to have one of those right after my A Levels!

XVIII. Her

Now, as you turn 18 today, I just want to thank you for everything – for all the tears, laughter, support, memories, lessons, debates, politics, gossip, calls, surprises, food and so much more! But more importantly Neha, thank you for being you! Thank you for being the amazing version of yourself! I love you, your flaws, your excellences and your victories to the deepest cores and I am so very thankful for you!

I love you.
