Yesterday I had accidentally stumbled across a programme in an FM Radio, in which I came to know that 2 nd August, was a ‘Friendship Day. Fans opted for their favorite songs which highlighted the friendship. Perhaps, we have such a day to remind ourselves on the value of friendship.
Then I came to the real question. What is friendship? In fact it requires an elaborate and comprehensive definition. Friendship is an unique relationship based on mutual understanding traversing the barriers of sex, race, color, caste, religion, age, nation or country.
There is a proverb ‘familiarity breeds contempt.But in my opinion familiarity breeds friendship.In the modern day context, especially in the on line, building a network of friendship is to facilitate and widen your contacts, so as to build up your business and to increase your income. In the process we actually create a net work of like minded people or the people who have similar interests.
Suppose, if you are interested in writing articles, blogs, poems and short stories, you are in search of people who have similar interests. In other words, we can say that while love is blind, friendship is not. It has eyes. Writers befriend writers, poets befriend poets, doctors befriend doctors, engineers befriend engineers and teachers befriend teachers and so on, which means friendship emanates between the like minded people, who have similar interest and knowledge. In fact such friendships have solid base and foundation.
Sometimes, friendship that arises between a boy and a girl naturally blossoms into love that ultimately leads to a marital relationship.
In the modern days, friendship in its perverted form turns into a gay, lesbian, trans gender and bisexual marriages amidst controversies. The basis of such perverted form of relationship is nothing but sex.
But when you analyze friendship a little more deeper, friendship apart from being mutual, in its ideal form, it is caring; it is understanding; it is selfless, it is reciprocal; it is devotion for the cause of others.
Friendship evokes friendship; it creates a congenial and harmonious atmosphere and relationship between friends.
The foremost value of friendship is that it civilizes the human beings and raises their level of relationship to a higher plane.
Apart from that it is the friendship that plays a vital role in regulating the relationship of countries in the world.
Let us cherish, let us build up, let us value and let us commemorate friendship in the true sense of the word !
