Of friends and friendship

“Words are easy like the wind, Faithful friends are hard to find. Everybody will be thy friend, whilst you have something to spend”

I do not dare doubt the veracity of the verse written by the most versatile writer of two millennia. If you smoke or you have a like or a motor car, it is easy for you to make friends. If you have a lot of money to shower people with material gifts or you have the gift of the gab and can flatter people to boost their egos you will have many friends. If you do not differ with people on their opinions and can prove that you care about them a lot, I can say for certain that each and every one will enjoy your companionship. Can you call them your real friends? I am afraid not.
It is very hard to have a true friend, that is to say, a friend in need. It is easy to say – we are your friends, but hard to prove it. Even the finest man of our society, for instance, frequently mention in their rhetorical speeches that they are people’s friend. And sometimes it becomes very hard for people to believe as there is something very phony about them. They are not very likely to be helpful to people. You can have a long chat with your friends but you will get bored when you find them nothing but a group of gossips. They simply encroach on your valuable time. Of course, we do not have plenty of scope for making good use of time. But I am sorry to say that each of us is a bit of a loafer. As is nature juveniles are very outgoing and gregarious. It is okay but they are not expected to get into bad company. Nowadays it is noticed that young people flock together and commit severe social crimes. These juvenile offenders call each other friend. We may know a man by the company he keeps. We cannot call an accomplice a friend.
Americans give great importance to the proper use of time. They are so time-conscious that they budget their time and spend it in a calculative way so time is never wasted. Never the less, they are friendly with all. They even address a person after a few minutes of acquaintance by the first name. But they never kill their valuable time simply gossiping. On the contrary gossiping is an integral part of our friendship and we spend most time in it.
In our society, no emphasis is given on individuality. Everyone is afraid of taking up his own responsibility. People never think before they ask favour of a friend. Favouritism is in no sense tantamount to friendship. Friendship does not mean unlimited access. I think one’s conscience is one’s best friend. It is proved that human beings are a very social species. So we crave the companionship of other people and a conscientious person full of probity in our large circle of friends is our best friend.
The main plank on which friendship is built up is the identity of thoughts and interests of some people. In fact, friendship provides emotional support and shared interest. True friendship never burgeons on its companions’ low and selfish motives. Instead the fellowship flourish with a natural love and empathy among the fellows. In a circle of friends everyone evinces a strong desire to do good to the others. I always prefer loneliness to companionship of abetting friends.
A computer can be a valuable friend for lonely people and it will certainly help them to make proper use of their time. You may think that the machine is beyond your means. I have to differ with you on that point and suggest you to count the whole money you have spent already for your fair-weather friends. I fancy that the amount is near about the value of a computer.
However, we cannot go on without friends. No wonder that we run into numerous problems every day. It is praise-worthy if we can get past these obstacles. But sometimes we get into troubles to manage some problems alone. And the person who comes forward altruistically to help us cope with the problem is our real friend that is to say, a friend indeed. Forgiveness is one of the most important attributes in friendship. Each and every one of a friendly circle must have a forgiving nature to build up a long lasting friendship. Sometimes a few minor mistakes or arguments or a small ego-trip unfortunately cause an estrangement of friends. This is not at all a token of friendship.
