The process of making new friends is never ending. Whenever you are in a new place you make new friends. In my school days I changed a couple of schools, hence made a lot of friends. What is the use of having such a large pool of friends? Most of them forget you as soon as the school session ends. Nevertheless, there are a few people who care to remember you, but these are very few people, very few. The concept of 'friends forever' in my opinion is somewhat bleak. I think people are good friends as long as they are in contact with each other, but there are exceptions. Your best friend may forget you but there can be someone who thinks that you are his best friend.
Among the pool of a lot of good friends I have, I consider about 4 people as friends forever. That's because they love me and aren't jealous of me at all. They always want my well being. In turn, I believe it is my responsibility as a friend to remain a friend forever. And I hope that I keep on getting such friends throughout my life. A few months ago I wrote a post on friendship on Mayur's blog, do check it out here. After many experiences I came to know that apart from the family, you friends are also important.
All I want to say is, friends are important in life. Don't forget your friends, care for them, and keep a contact with them so that you find out many friends who can be with you, forever!
Happy Friendship Day!
Update: I would like to mention the names of my best 4 friends.
Chaand, Vishal, Pranov and Ruchita, thanks for being my best friends!
