Farewell !

Hi good day!
This post was started at end of last month, finally finishing it up & Publishing it. Read on! :)

Farewell !

It was a tough job to bid farewell to our head, mentor, a good friend. But we tried to take it with a positive twist. "Good Luck" for the next venture in Life.
Have come across some good incidences of bidding farewell. Some are positive, some not so positive :).

One of them I loved was when one of our best friend was getting married. When the time came to say Goodbye, the usual crying,sobbing didn't take over her family. Instead they were laughing,teasing & jovial. They sent her off with a smile on each of their faces. After she left, her mom,aunties,grand parents all started crying. We friends were confused, when we asked them whats all this, they told us
'We are celebrating a good thing in her life-Marriage, so why cry, make her cry & sad. Send her off happily, even though we will feel her absence. This is the way we send off all our daughter in the family'.
What say! Isnt it a gr8 way to say Bye.

The other good one was when our School organised Farewell parties. We were never spoilt by our school with fancy stuff or by emotional gatherings. We too as juniors had organised great Farewell parties, which instead described each students positive points, how they made a difference, thanking them, giving our best wishes for the future followed by dance,gifts,food, & all the gr8 things about partying.

One of the bad or not so good one happens during family gatherings especially I guess in India. You have gone to a family get together & when its time for you to leave, they just wont let you leave. They will coax,force,demand you to stay back for the night or stay for some more hours, forgetting that you may have spent the entire day @their place already & you might have other things to do when you get back home! This gets specially stressful as you cant stay any longer nor hurt anyone's feelings.

Have you come across any such good/bad Farewell incidents?

I like a Farewell song we sang & dedicated to our school during our Farewell: Hasta Manana till we meet again.
It means 'So long, till we meet again'.

Do you know anymore Farewell songs, any language will do?

Let us know. Bye. Take care.


  1. makes me feel sad.. thinking of farewells..

    some songs that come to my mind 'im leaving on a jet plane' and 'may the good Lord bless and keep you'

    so long..

  2. Hi Thanks Saiola for the comment & the songs suggested. Both of them are my favorites. 2nd one we sang in school for most of prayer services/teachers day events.

    So long Saiola ! :)
