I still remember like it happened few days ago but it  had happened  almost two decades ago. My neighbor knocked at my gate and asked whether he could park his car inside our campus as the road outside his residence was being metalled. Then I saw few blankets on the back seat of his car. He himself told me that they were just returning from Chandigarh after attending a friends daughters wedding. Then I asked him as to why he carried his own blankets. Then he said, what are friends for?

Man can find satisfaction by living in a society and talking to people. But it is in the company of friends that he enjoys most. And true friends are few. True friends are those who have no inhibitions, they are purely selfless and sacrificing people. The understandings are absolutely clear. A true friend is what you see in a mirror – your own image. Then how can you harm your own self?  There are no doubts in either’s mind. Friends don’t betray though some people do. Those people who betray are not friends in the true sense of the word. One has to be very careful in reposing trust in another. But Rome was not built in a day and so is friendship

The main reason of true friendship is that you can pour your heart out in his or her presence. It is very easy to express one’s feelings to the fullest. We share our joys with them and that gives us more contentment.  You should always look at a friend for what he is and not what he has. Then there is another advantage that you will always be confident that your friend understands you. You cannot always keep your thoughts to yourself and act alone. The best course is to consult your friends and mind you, their’s would be the best opinion in the world – without any selfish calculations. If your opinion or judgment is wrong in any way, it is only the friend who has every right to scold you and direct you to alter your path in a different direction and I assure you is that wont hurt at all. Because a sincere advice is very hard to get in difficult and bad times. Then, even while seeking the advice one has to go to a sincere and trusted friend and not an acquaintance. You may be knowing half of the town depending upon how social you are, but friends are two or three only or maybe four at the outside.

How does a friendship last long? Firstly true friends never hurt each others feelings, they know their friend’s requirements and needs (materials excluded) and they re always willing to give a helping hand in any situation.  And a true friend can be defined as the one with whom you can play chess on the telephone – Eh!

If you have a couple of true friends – enjoy  executive class life on the face of this earth.
