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 (more…)
