Everyone will be inspired by someone. Be it your parents, great leaders, your friends, movie stars or even a passerby you saw one day doing a good deed. We would have learnt so much from them in so little time and all that we would want to do is follow their footsteps to reach greater heights.
Some people might even inspire us to do what we want to do or who has helped us to achieve the place we are in today. And for some, they might have been just a passing pillar of support that we needed desperately during that time of crisis.
And that’s how Dileep Kumar has been for RJ Balaji. A childhood friend and neighbour, Dileep has inspired Balaji so much, that even after years of losing contact, he wants to get in touch with his childhood friend now!
RJ Balaji was living in Thirvanmiyur, Thiruvalluvar Nagar back in 1996 and was in 6th Std. Dileep was three years older to him and was staying at his opposite flat. They are from Erode and his father was a lawyer.
They used to play full time on the streets from cricket, badminton, ice bys, 7 shots, trump cards, Mario and a whole lot of other games. Balaji almost learnt all the games seeing Dileep play.
Dileep wanted to become a Badminton player. But he wanted to satisfy his family’s dream of him becoming an engineer. He joined Mechanical Engineering in Anna University. Despite his financial status he struggled and walked all the way to Annanagar for training. He used to have just 5 Rs to buy something to eat.
One day, he became a National level player. He also joined TCS and later moved to US. He did achieve both his and his parents’ dream!
He had great values and always abided by them. His every action and achievement inspired Balaji in every way. Dileep was Balaji’s childhood hero. They dearly loved each other and were best buddies. He was the first one to know that Balaji was talented and he owes him a lot for all the values he taught him.
Now, Balaji wants to find him back. He wants the person who gave him so much and taught him many things in life. He’s been trying to track him down in all social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, but no luck so far. He even tried contacting his old friends in the area, but have got no clue so far.
Balaji dearly misses his best friend Dileep and would love to get him back. He was called as Kutty Balaji by Dileep. Their friendship seems to have no bound. Call it fate that played a separation in their lives owing to various circumstances. And by God’s grace, these fellows can get back their long lost friendship.
If any of you know anything about Dileep or any leads regarding him, kindly send a mail to [email protected] It would mean a lot to Balaji. Anyone having a best friend in their lives will the pain of losing one. It would be very kind if any of you out there can do anything to help these two best friends join!
Here is the post made by RJ Balaji himself which led to this entire scenario
