Friendship Day Special
A good friend would bail you out of jail,But your best friend would be the one sitting next to you saying, “Damn, That was awesome”.
Here comes the most awaited Friendship Day. The first Sunday of August is popularly celebrated worldwide as ‘Friendship Day’. On this day, people tie bands on their friend’s wrist to make their bond of friendship stronger.
One World News interacted with few youngsters, adults and people of older generation who shared with us their craziest, memorable moments and their plans to celebrate this day.
We spotted two old men at a tailoring shop which was owned by one of them while the other stayed nearby. The duo usually meet in evenings, talk about their work and other past moments which are still lively and fresh in their minds like it happened yesterday. This is a part of their daily routine since years now. They were not aware of anything called ‘Friendship Day’. In fact, they laughed at it and said, “When you are with your friends, every day is a Friendship day”.
Girls of the famous North Campus shopping hub, Kamla Nagar have their own way of chilling out with friends. Ayushi, a second year DU student said, “I have a big circle of friends but Komal is my best friend and we are planning something different this year, like a trip to Kasol or Nainital. Recalling their older days, Ayushi says, “For fun, we used to hop in some branded shops like Zara or Madame and check out their trendy stuffs, try in dressing rooms, took a selfie and bought none. Shopkeepers used to make faces but we loved doing that”.
Ankita Sheel, a school teacher misses her best friend, Nina who is now settled abroad. She says, “I miss Pajamas parties and hanging out at her place more than anything. I remember at one such night, Nina was missing home-cooked food by her grandmother. Though I was not a good cook yet tried making some sweet dish for her at around three in the morning. Nina was touched by this act of mine and hugged me. That sweet incident made our bond even stronger. We were more like sisters born from different mothers, simply inseparable”.
As everyone knows, school days are the best part of our lives. We made friends with those who brought the best lunch and not who were rich or beautiful. So, friendship made at that stage lasts for a lifetime. Sukriti Singh, an event manager says, “I am very excited for this friendship day as I have a plan for a get-together with school friends. Most of us are married and few have children also. We will go back to our school to pay a visit to teachers and other faculty members. It is strange to believe that we have really grown up. I still remember our bunking days, chilling out in school campus after class. And now, those buddies are coming with their children. I am really excited and eager to see them this weekend”.
