A good friend is a great boon. Genuine friendship is a real In the present day in the life. But good and true friends are rare blessing world, they have become rarer. There and materialistic selfish are many fair-weather friends. But it is not easy to find a faithful friend and companion.
A friend in need is a friend indeed. A good friend is always ready to make a sacrifice for his friend. He does not care for his personal gain or comfort. Faithfulness, sincerity, love, and sacrifice are the hallmarks of true friendship Like love, it inspires confidence, hope, and optimism. But these days, friendship is used very casually. Generally, all the persons whom we often call friends are not real friends. They are just acquaintances and familiar persons with whom we often come in contact. A true friend is one with whom we share all our secrets, joys, sorrows and thoughts. He is a true advisor, well-wisher and greatly helpful.
They are really fortunate who have at least one true and sincere friend. Without such a friend half the joy of life is gone. I am really lucky in this respect. I have a number of friends in the general sense, but only Shahid is my genuine friend. He is of my age and my class fellows. He is my best friend. And I am really proud of him. He also cherishes my friendship and regards me his very intimate friend. We cannot think of life without each other. We have been best friends for 5-6 years. There has never been any misunderstanding between us.
Shahid is of sweet nature, good manners and very polite. His parents are high officials in the Central Government. They are rich have their own big house, car and all other amenities of modern life. And yet he is never proud or arrogant. His parents love me like their own son. Similarly, my parents love Shahid much. He is often at my house. My mother prepares special dishes for him.
We are often together and do our homework in each other’s company. We play together, enjoy story-telling and share jokes and anecdotes. He lives a few houses away from my own house. We have common hobby of playing chess. It is an intellectual game and we both enjoy it. We discuss so many points and intricacies of the game and make strategies for the next round of the play. But we play only in the spare time and for the sake of pure pleasure, recreation and development of our analytical skills. Shahid is an intelligent student and his grades are always excellent, in science subjects he is always on the top. He helps me in my science lessons and practicals. And I in my turn help him in English. He is not weak in English but not so brilliant as I am in the subject. We study together with a sense of healthy competition without jealousy or envy. However, many students feel jealous of our intimate and sincere friendship, but we never care about them. We really swim and sink together
