Same same but different??!!

They say that there are 7 people around the world who look like you.

Has it ever happened to you that some stranger you saw passing by, resembled your relative or a friend or someone you know?I am sure most of you may have experienced this.But has it happened that this person was a carbon copy of the person you know???I mean exact replica????Or close to that?

Today, as i was on my way to college waiting for a rickshaw, I saw one approaching me and my friend.Inside it was a guy about to get off.At first when I looked at him, i could only see his eyes as he had covered his mouth with a handkerchief.But as the rick came nearer, his face uncovered slowly as he put his handkerchief down to pay the fare.And as i saw his face i was stumped!!!

Me(poking my friend H)--Hey! look at him, quick!
H- what?...who is it?

And by the time she could get a proper glance of him, the guy walked away.He looked exactly like one of my friend A.Now i know, what you are thinking.'Big deal.So he looked like him.Such coincidences happen all the time!'.And i agree with you.But this was different!The same face, the same shirt, the same height,the same eyes!!!Almost everything about that guy resembled my friend!But before i could tell him that, he walked away.I mean, this is not the first time this has happened with me.A few months back i saw someone who looked very much like my friend S.

H-shyaa! i missed it!(she couldn't see him).
H-But c'mon at least something would be different!
Me- ya, he was a bit fairer but otherwise he looked so much like A!!

I can surely say, there was something different about this guy.Can people look so similar?There was a striking resemblance between the two!
I just couldn't keep it to myself and had to rush back home and tell my friend about his 'long lost brother'
Weird coincidences are not a new thing.But there have been so many in the past few months that this one seems too good to be true.And no, it wasn't my friend coz he isn't anywhere in Mumbai.
But the next time i meet this guy i'll ask him if he has a twin long lost brother by any chance!

life's weird! really!

I once met a client who for some reason looked like a colleague in my old office and i couldnt shake off the feeling that the two were related.

I randomly bumped into my colleague coupla months after and found out they were SECOND cousins! she was stumped that i could even have made the connection!

Hehe... Happens with me all the time. But the best I know is was a friend here in the US. She went to my university and she looked exactly like Anusha Dandekar..the MTV VJ... I showed her Anushas pics and she was so surprised that some one actually looked almost like her...Very strong resemblance!!
