Home is where heart is. We try to find a place in other person’s life. That is the psychology behind the friendship. Friendship sees no bar whether its age, sex, religion, or anything else. True friend is when your heart feels the warmth and secure in his or her company. Aristotle said “man is a social animal”, that means one needs emotional, social and moral support of other people to live in the society, which gives protection, confidence, enthusiasm and strength to the individual. A friend is required to live happy life. It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them. When two person are bonded together through need, utility or familiar duty but rather through mutual respect and virtue are true friends. Friendship is essential component of good life. The value of friendship is in having and enjoying it.
We have seen stories of true friendship in many movies, in reel life friends go out of way and sometimes sacrifice life for the sake of friend as Jay and Veeru in Sholay, Or Pawan’s love for Saiyda in Bajrangi Bhaijaan – a story about friendship between a simple, religious, and innocent man’s affection for dumb and pretty six year old girl. It’s a tale of people from different nations finding place for acceptance. In real life, we see friendship in much more practical way. The good example is of Larry page and Sergey Brin. At Stanford Sergey met Larry page with whom he later became friends. Their partnership is world known, it has created a Google Planet.
Doing Friendship is a natural tendency of human being. First at school we develop friendship with class mates. Then we reach to college to develop everlasting friendship which we cherish life long. In office, we create a relationship that is very supporting and is more of give and take bond. Everybody looks for the friend either to have a fulfilling social life, to share the happiness and agony, or to feel more enriched by sharing respect and love. What ever is the reason people look for friends and develop the bond.
This bond should be based on human values and should grow with the spiritual growth of person. The more values people share the more depth is seen in the friendship. The bonds should be to give you happiness rather than pain. Because we cherish life with friends. One good friend in life more than enough to keep life beautiful. It is a need of society relationships among the people should be strong to maintain peace and happiness.
