The cup of joy called friendship



In a different role

THE CIT auditorium was reverberating with music on the warm Saturday evening, and the students were having a whale of a time.

Joining them in their merriment were two familiar faces, S.P. Balasubramaniam's son S.P.B. Charan and music composer Gangai Amaran's son Venkat Prabhu.

No! For once they were here not as performers, but as judges for the fashion parade.

Seated comfortably in the front row and hush-hushing wisecracks to each other, they seemed totally at ease being there.

"We are elated to be part of the show and feel much younger," they voiced in unison.

"Friendship is not a day's business. One should learn to value it and remain friends for life. For instance, we acknowledge and appreciate each other's efforts. That's one reason we are able to remain as good friends", says Charan.

"Friendship begins in school and at times even blossoms into love in college. So, it is necessary for you learn to handle it with care," said Venkat in his inimitable Tamil.

They treated the crowd to a few songs on friendship and a mixture of gana.

Patting each other occasionally, they crooned hits, both the latest and from yesteryears.
