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.
