Friendship - Yashraj Sharma
“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still understands you.” - Elbert Hubbard.
Friendship! If someone asks me about the most important people in my life, I will say my family and friends because these two relationships have always kept me optimistic in my unhappy times and taken care of me.
But, unfortunately, in today’s times, our non-verbal communication has gained much ground. Now, priorities have changed to some extent. Sometimes, things commonly make us fume. When we send our best friend a message through Whatsapp, they have seen it, and we have the double blue ticks to prove it. Yet, they haven’t replied.
A sense of hesitation and discomfort starts to tingle in us. We start thinking before sending texts to our friends. We start overthinking and thoughts like, will our friendship grow after this or will they not talk to us? Start coming to our mind. But my experience with friends is thankfully different !!
A wise saying says no one knows the importance of water until the well dries; this applies to friends also. We never realise the value of friends until we are separated.
Before this pandemic, during offline classes, we met our friends daily, we used to chit-chat with each other, work as a team, exchange our thoughts and views etc. Though we were good friends for a long time, I never realised that is such a strong bond. So during this time, we are connecting through video calls on weekends. It refreshes my mind. I feel elated and ecstatic. It would be true to say that friends are valuable treasures of life.
I pray to God and look forward to meeting my friends in person very soon.
