We Call It Group Hug!

A hug is the perfect gift- one size fits all and nobody minds if you exchange it. ” 
― Irvin Ball

'Hug', more or less everyone knows and experienced it.

For me, hug is the cure when my lips are tired of smiling..
hug is the remedy when I am breaking inch by inch inside..
hug is the amplifier of the sparkling of joy..
and hug is the tear of both happiness and sorrow that you never shed but you share..

And, that's how we first shared our compassion and team-spirit, by a group hug!
It was quite interesting,
First you have to hold one another's hand, and stand by a line and then the person standing on the corner has to start rolling inside, and somehow you form a shape of a jammed circle, and then you squeeze each other with all of your strength!

We held our hands, one by one, and Samrat, man on the edge started to roll, like a spring!

And the rolling is almost done!

It's time for squeeze!! :P

That we called a "group hug"!

And that group hug have still kept the warmth and spirit of our journey together.
I can remember the first time, we all were hesitating, with a bit of insecurity and confusion because the bonding was not made yet, but I can remember the last one too, holding each other firmly with great confidence and trust with a promise which shaped us as friends, above all as a family in a true sense!

There's something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart,
It welcomes us back home
And makes it easier to part....
