We all talk about friendship and friends but do we exactly know what friendship is, what friends are? Does anyone know the hidden meaning behind the term ‘Friendship’? Has anyone ever explored the depths of a friend’s heart? If yes, only then we can happily sustain and live this eternal relationship.
As for me, my friend is my angel, someone who makes my life meaningful and colourful. In his own imaginative ways he spreads love and radiance to my life. As he walks in the open doors of my life, all the ill spirit starts moving out the door. With this, all the darkness disappears, making my days full of life and my life full of light.
By light I just don’t refer to his glowing face or an aura surrounding his face but to the real radiance that comes from within. As I explore the depth of his heart I get to know him better and I find the world within. Pack of values and virtues fill his heart with traces of love, concern, kindness, humanity, generosity, compassion, and courage. His heart looks like a canvas with a beautiful picture that portrays an angelic being. And the best part is that to discover the depth of his heart you don’t need to take a ride within but just a peep into his eyes that is always sparkling with love.
When the bright sun burns me he becomes a tree to protect me from the burning sensation, during the chilling winter morning he keeps me closer to the warm light of his heart, in despair he becomes my hope, in sorrow he becomes my smile, and in joy he becomes my companion. He masters an art of transforming ordinary days to extraordinary days and knows the magic to convert tears to smiles. In all forms in all ways he makes my life magnificent.
That’s what my friend is, my beautiful angel!!! And yours?
Do you really think they are with you in all the walks of life? Do they stand beside you even in the thundering storm? Or they walk out when the entire world walks out? You have your answers, so ask yourself and then decide who your friend is…
Can you hear the voice of a young girl sweating with blood and flooding in tears? With tears in her eyes, pain in her heart, and plead in her words, her heart is just singing one slogan of life, “ Please Let Me Live”.
Is it really difficult for the world to grant me this one quest of life? From the womb of my mother, I can feel the beautiful world, the magnificent landscapes, golden deserts, flowing waters, and numerous panoramic views. From there within I can feel the virtual touch of my parents, my family, and my friends. From the wraps of a mother’s womb, I want to come out to see the beautiful world, feel magic in my mother’s arms, feel at bliss walking the first step holding my dad’s finger, and enjoy the splendid world of friends and relatives showering love and concern. Is this something beyond life that I can’t get? Or is it something that I don’t deserve? Are my expectations too much for you all that you can’t surrender and grant me the freedom to live my desire?
If not, then why are you killing me? Please let me live my life like my brother and my other siblings are living. Allow me to take a fresh breath in the world and march ahead to experience the ups and downs of all phases of life. Hurdles are certainly a part of life and I don’t deny facing them as I know that I hold the strength and endurance to overcome them. But to fight these I need to live, I need to experience the truth of life, and I need to fight courageously. Without even giving me one chance to prove myself, don’t say, ‘I am weak’, don’t say, ‘I can’t fight’ and please never say, ‘I can’t live’.
Inner voice of every girl child today is singing just one chorus, ‘I may not be beautiful in appearance but I am beautiful from within. Please don’t kill me and grant me the freedom to live’.
It’s time to wake up my friends and listen to the chores of a girl child. We should certainly take measures to stop girl infanticide, female feticide as well as grant all girls a beautiful world to live and enjoy.
Today I really feel like asking you all, 'Who is your best friend?' Can you peep into your heart and name just a few who can truly be called friends....think wisely.
As I turn back to look at life behind me I was shocked to see the way world has changed. There were times when friendship was of utmost important to people. The era of Krishna and Sudama is just one real life example of true, selfless, and unconditional friendship. But now, where is that feeling of selflessness, that endless love for each other.
In the present day we really don't find friends who are so selfless and care unconditionally. There are friends till you have money, there are friends till you are useful, and there are friends till you can serve. After that do you remember anyone standing beside you when you actually need them? At a time when trials and tribulations hit hard on your life, people around you just move apart and change their way. There will be many friends loving you and caring for you when you enjoy life under the sun. Sadly the same friends and the same people move away when someday darkness surrounds you and sun fails to shine back the another day.
Now think and tell me do you really have any single friend who is with you and by your side in all ups and downs, one who smiles with you under the sun and then comforts you in darkness? Do you have one friend who moves an extra step to support you in pain and walks with you steadily on all terrains? If yes, then you are lucky my friend......trust me. Treasure that friend forever because there is no special gift than having a selfless friend.
And for those who feel they don't have any such friend then I tell you one top secret...there is one thing in this present day world that if becomes your best friend, you'll be the richest person. You'll have the joys of two worlds and you'll be on top. And that one thing is 'Money'.
Yes, my friend money can give you everything but only in the present era....At a later stage compare your life with those who have the treasure of special friends.........They'll be the happiest, richest, and the most joyful people on earth.

Humanity, Love, Generosity, Forgiveness, Empathy, Honesty, Friendliness, Charity, Humbleness and Innocence!!! In reality if I say these are mere words suppressed between the pages of a dictionary. Yes, these are human values that are list amidst the fast flowing economic energy with the advancing technology and increasing means of attaining a luxurious livelihood.
Sit back for a while, close your eyes and peep within your soul, you’ll find illusory sensual pleasures dancing in a graveyard of dead relationships. Squeeze some time out of your busy routine and look around you, all you’ll see is robbery, bomb blast, murder, rape, domestic violence and what not. It’s shameful; absolutely outrageous. The guiding principles of social conduct, norms of moral philosophy and rules of behavior that is supposed to create the human race are fading. With this, attributes like hatred, greed and violence are blanketing the universe and darkening the era of so-called technological world. The malaise is known to be the fastest growing virus on its way to destroy the core of human values, the soul of humanity.
Someone has to wake up and restrict the path of this spreading virus. Someone has to make man understand that he is running on a reckless path chasing momentary pleasures, and that too at the cost of their own happiness. Someone has to give a spark so that atleast a few can join the cause and save humanity from going to extinction.
I agree monetary gains are the needs of every individual but the same can always be attained whilst retaining the core values and virtues. Why to let go off lasting joys and beautiful smiles when we can live with it whilst earning a luxurious livelihood.
Its not that virtues have completely gone out of the civilization. There are people who still value these ethics and continue climbing the ladder of success with their concern about humanity. These are the ones who are known to infused with virtues and ethics, these are the ones who hold the responsibility to remove the dark blanket covering the universe. Trust me, even you and I can join the noble cause. Trust me it’s not at all difficult to be good, all we need to be is a human and that’s what we are.
Wake up my friends; it’s time to wake up!

A friend is someone who stands by you through thick and thin. He has unconditional love for you and treats you like a brother. He is always there for you in times of your need. No matter what choices you’ve made, he is always there to guide you and to rectify your mistakes if need be. Friendship is the relationship that exists between two individuals. They make sure that they travel through life’s troubles and happiness together and bring out the best in each other.
No wonder they say that true friendship comes in the form of a blessing. A friend is someone you connect with on a strong emotional basis. Friendship is one of the pillars to success which assists you in every life move. It helps bring you up when you are feeling down. It motivates you and pushes you to get out of your boundaries and explore new things. It gives you reason to look forward to tomorrow. It gives you a shoulder to cry on, someone to lean one and someone to create wonderful memories with. Friendship means allowing yourself to be you. Your friends accept you for who you are and you can act crazy or silly or downright ridiculous in front of them and have a good time.
Imagine life without friendship. Dealing with all the troubles you are faced with in life alone. Not only does it sound depressing but also quite impossible. You need someone to be there for you at your highs as well as your lows. A lot of people tend to have a huge group of friends while some tend to stick to lesser numbers. But the magnitude of your friendship doesn’t matter as much as the quality of it. True friendship stands by a person’s side always.
Friendship helps in making a person feel loved and accepted. It enriches your life and makes you feel wanted. Friendship is one of the things that we should be thankful to God for. Moreover, you should be thankful to your friends for being there for you always.
Traveling through the various paths life has laid out for you can only be made easier and enjoyable with the company of good friends. The only thing you should hope for is being blessed with good friends. The key element to a lasting friendship is being a good friend yourself.
The stages in a woman’s life cycle can be broken down into three main parts: The Maiden, The Mother and The Crone. Because hormones play such an integral part in a woman’s growth and development a woman’s psyche goes through a lot of changes as she grows up. These hormones affect the emotions, the experiences and the feelings that a woman contains at the time of the transition.
A woman goes through a lot of physical transformations in her life. Beginning with menstruation and ending with menopause it is indeed an intense time for her. It makes her reflect on her inside and understand her thoughts and emotions. It creates a strong sense of intuition inside them. As a women grows, the psychology of her mind transforms with the changes in her body accordingly.
It is said that a woman must get in touch with her feminine side through any of the three phases she is going through. Some people believe that a woman can have all three factors awakened in her together. To evolve into our femininity one must be conscious of the presence of the three elements in the mind and body. These three elements combined together are also known as the Triple Goddess. By accepting and discovering the Maiden, mother and the crone, we can consciously choose which side to portray.
The maiden is the young girl that is unaware of the ways of the world. She is curious and playful. She feels the need to explore the world and find out its various ways. There are no inhibitions and no one stopping this girl to get from what she wants. She is ready to explore and set out on the various wonders life has to offer to her.
The second stage is that of the mother. She is wiser and more mature. She is responsible and has her priorities set. She believes in doing good things for others. She has compassion and is generous in her behaviour.
The third stage is that of the Crone. This is the wisest of all stages. A crone has lived a full life and has the wisdom to choose from right to wrong. She is self empowered and does not perform any action without thinking. She has honed her intuition skills perfectly.
Therefore a woman’s life cycle travels through these three phases typically. These depict how varied and complex the inner psyche of a female is.
Man is a social animal. We’ve all heard this phrase a lot of times in our lives. This stands absolutely true as all of us are in need of social contacts. This is one factor that is same in every human being irrespective of his age, sex, nationality or whichever factor that makes him different from the other. Relationships add the much needed flavour to life. We have someone to share our happiness, sorrows and daily drama with. They can however go either way, therefore relationship, like other things need to be given time and care.
As we know time has the ability to change most things. Relationships are not secure from the tide of time as well. This can be reflected by the various relationships we hold in our lives. Take your relationship with your parents as an example. We see that as we grow up, the relationship tends to bend towards an equality side. We learn to become independent and our parents start treating us as equals.
Therefore, the kind of relationships you hold differs from the person in question. We have a significant relationship with each person in our life. They can be friends, or family, or co-workers or teachers or even pets. Every human craves for comfort and company. Therefore, a healthy relationship ensures success in a lot of ways. We have someone to inspire us, share positive thoughts as well as guide us in everyday life.
However there is a downside to having relationships as well. If we do not give them enough importance or take our relationships for granted we are inviting unwanted stress and drama into our lives. Relationships have to be cared and nurtured for fulfilling results. Due to the fast paced life that we are living in now, we often neglect our relationships. This is detrimental to our health as relationships are important for a healthy social life. It helps the person decide the kind of person he wants to develop himself into. Interacting and communicating with likeminded peers makes life simpler.
Relationships teach you a lot of things. We learn to socialize and interact with fellow human beings. Each relationship has something new to offer. They teach us to explore and enjoy new things in life. Communication is an integral part to any relationship. It helps in clearing the mind of any negativity and instills positive feeling in one’s body. Relationships also guide you in life creating many fond memories with your loved ones that you can cherish.
