A single day is not enough to thank your friend for a bond forged through a lifetime. Let’s take this friendship day to cherish a relationship with a buddy who knows you inside out and has been with you through thick and thin. But before that, we should know What is Friendship Day, history and significance of this day and Who is that special person!
We meet millions of people all the world in our lifetime, but a very few remains in our heart. Friends are those special family that we choose. A friend can be your parents, grandparents, siblings, relative, your pets, or the Unknowns who met during your lifetime.
A true friendship doesn’t mean exchanging messages, gossiping all day, but somebody who is there when you need them, somebody who doesn’t demand anything or complaints about petty issues, somebody who teases you, makes fun of you, and will never praise you in front of you. A true friend never stabs you behind your back.
We have the bond of friendship in Indian mythology also, from being Lord Krishna – Arjun, Lord Rama – Sugriva, Karna-Duryodhana to Draupadi-Krishna any many more. How can one forget the most famous and loved tale of Lord Krishna-Sudama, the friendship which was pure and transcended the boundaries of caste, creed or social status. According to Indian Mythology, the day when Sudama travelled all the way to Dwarka to meet Lord Krishna is the day called Friendship day.
