The coolest thing in this world next to love is friendship. Friendship is the only relationship which is not forced for anyone and which is optional. Almost anyone can become friend to anybody. A friend can share your good times and bad times and support you unconditionally. Its no doubt that close friends are gods gift.
I spent much of my time with friends in school and college days. And even now i hang out with friends in the evenings and weekends. I always keep myself open to get new friends who may become close friends.
The mind feels to be very pleasant and comfortable while interacting and being with a friend. A friend can motivate and support if one feels low and help you to grow.
