In our lives, we get to meet so many people. Out of these ‘many’, there are always a few, who are not a part of our family but they are our family. They are our FRIENDS. We as students are completely free with our friends; talking, laughing and joking around. Friends will be always caring and considerate, and they will be there when we need a help. We might also meet people who are not actually our close friends but we cannot say they are not our friend. These kinds of friends are often termed ‘Hi-Bye’ friends and such a relationship will not last long. A valuable friend is that person who will be by our side to encourage, motivate and support us; whether we are happy or sad, whether we are healthy or sick, whether we are near or far away from them. We celebrate ‘Friendship Day’ every second Sunday of August across the globe. Common, yet sweet, festivities on this day include friends tying friendship bands to each other, exchanging gifts and sending greeting cards. Even if gifts are not given, bracelets not tied or cards not sent, friendship day could be celebrated with simply giving a phone call to your friend and remembering all the beautiful memories that you shared together. True friendships can never break-up over silly issues and they are everlasting.
