Compliments And Comments

There are some really interesting and memorable comments and compliments that people have sent my way at various points of time in my life. I feel like recording some of them here. Some date back to as long as thirteen years ago, and some are as recent as this afternoon. Some will be accompanied by the context and the name of the person who said (or wrote) it to me, and some might not. Here goes.
  • "When you sing, you sing straight from the heart." This was when I was in the eight standard. A few friends and I were just casually sitting around, trying to sing a little. One of those friends said this to me.
  • This was when I was in the tenth standard, and the academic year was close to its conclusion. A friend of mine was making an audio cassette in which she was recording everybody's voices, to remember them by. She handed her recording equipment to one of the guys for a while. He came to me, and said something to this effect: "We would like to know, from Bhavya Dabas, of Teens Today fame, the secret behind her lovely smile."
  • This was again when I was in the tenth standard. That was probably the last time I picked up a paintbrush. My art teacher told me that I had a way with the watercolours. I made them appear really bright and fresh.
  • There was this evening, a few months back, when I was feeling really low and my self-esteem had hit rock bottom. A friend of mine, in his attempt to make me smile, told me that I had a really lovely smile, like nobody else did.
  • Akash once told me that I was looking like a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top of a scoop of strawberry ice-cream with chocolate sauce.
  • On the same day, Abhinav told me I was looking like I had just flown in from Persia on a flying carpet.
  • One of my friends from my MCA once told me that I was too good for any of the guys in the Department.
  • One of my juniors from my MCA told me, in front of the entire Department, that, when I smiled, it hit him hard right in his heart. He also said that I was one of the prettiest girls in the Department. And he said that I should always remain the way I am.
  • My boss told me, a little while back, that he was impressed with the fact that I'd managed to lose so much weight. It showed how much will power I had.
  • Akash told me that I was sweet enough for him (and everybody else) to eat me for dessert.
  • Ashish called me "charmingly sweet" a few days back.
  • Alok said something to this effect: "I have never been able to talk to a girl as much and as comfortably as I talk to you."

I think I will add to this list in the near future, but this is about it for now.
