Hi NRJ, actually my friend is going through her tough times. Her best friend is not in good contact with her since 5-6 months or more. Her best friend is currently working in Bangalore. Her friend comes to Mumbai to meet other friends and doesn’t tell her about the plans. So she’s quite upset about it. She shared her prob with me. I don’t know her friend that well.
