To begin with, let’s not try defining Friendship unlike anyone else in this world. It is beautiful in all the various forms it is available – humble, mischievous, quirky, loyal, crazy, and so on.
Though Friendship Day was first proposed in 1958 in Paraguay as the “International Friendship Day” which is July 30. Later On 27 April 2011, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared 30 July as official International Friendship Day.
In India, we celebrate August First Sunday as the Friendship Day. But we all are well aware that since the caveman times there would have been a friend for a human. That’s how man became a Social Animal possibly.
This emotion is neither taught to us nor provided by any contract, yet the most beautiful profound one. In the world of relations where people prepare themselves and attach a lot of physical or blood value even, they can never compete with the Friendship bond.
Most of our best memories are all always filled withfriends, since childhood, the comfort we develop with this world is mainly raised and nurtured through our friends. The exposure to the reality of the practical world is faced with a friend most of the time than any other relation.
The weird conversations, Funniest moments, worst Embarrassments, at most Disappointments, Exciting adventures, and much more are experienced through a friend. All the gods in mythologies have a Friend. Well, all the superheroes have a friend. Even the super scary villains in fairytales have a buddy.
Let us recollect and Cherish those super treasured moments with our Friends……..
Be it in a school or in your neighborhood, we all have a friend in childhood who believed in our weird fantasies and laughed out to our secret innocent gossips. The person who stood with us when others misunderstood, though he himself dint understand much, still he was there just because he was our friend. That conflicts you had with your teachers, or the confusion you had with your parents, it was all bombed to that person who was your cute tiny therapist then. It is awesome if you are still in contact with this buddy, who knows your inner child without any filter.
From north to south, or from religion to other religions the narrative of a relative may change but we all have that Cousin Buddy. The person who made our holidays exciting, the person who quickly explained the rumor in a party, the person with whom you shared your clothes, the person who has a gripping plan to convince your parents for a trip, the person who was your shy dance partner in functions. Anything it might be, but we all have that friend where we believed that not all relations are pressure cookers. Beauty with this buddy is that you don’t need to emphasize the contact; the family platform always offers that possibility.
In the world of gloomy artistic heartbreaks, the friend from the opposite gender is a blessing in disguise. It is always difficult to analyze why women love romance and why men love cricket so much. With a best friend from the opposite sex, it becomes a slow revelation to understand the other sex without inhibitions. Here there is No requirement of praiseworthy comments or pretty big surprises to hold the relationship. The warmth and security without any expectations between a genuine opposite-sex friendship is something one needs to experience to understand it.
Do you have one? Cherish it. Don’t have one Not yet?? Well, Its time to have one.
Brutal Honest and Loyal Buddy
The one who never keeps you in a fake comforting zone. The person who exposes your mistakes more openly to you without any filters to get the best out of you. The one who never allows any toxic relationship into your life. The one who is always honest and loyal to you despite the situation is your Brutal Honest and Loyal Buddy. We all need that person in our lives. Though at times we may develop friction with them, life provides enough opportunities to realize their worth. In the times of this social media friends and show put up world, never we can afford to miss them.
Adventurous – Free Soul Buddy
The happy soul, whose excitement questions your troubles and makes them take reverse gear. The adventurous one who always has a way to make every moment feasible. The person who is freer flowing, who doesn’t need a plan to make things as precious as memories. The person who can make even a punishment receivable in life or cuss sounds much dearer than any formal tags. That happy go lucky soul is your adventurous frees soul Buddy. Having one friend such is amazing and being one is always awesome.
As many beautiful fleeting thoughts, we have in this world, much more amusing friends are there out in this world, making this planet more bearable every single day. Let’s cherish all the beautiful and weird flowers in our gardens.
Happy Friendship Day to all your Buddies and the Buddy in you…!!!
