What is friendship?

Just simply being friends with someone doesn’t give the entire meaning of friendship. Being friends means we have to accomplish our duties towards each other like helping one another, sharing in happiness and sorrow.

To have a good friendship, it is necessary that we stop being selfish. Some people become friends for selfish and personal interests. Such persons can never become good friends.

Like one rotten apple can spoil the entire sack of apples, so can one bad friend spoil the friendship of so many people.

It is not necessary that we friends with people of our own age. But we be friends with everyone. Our life is short and to make it happier, friends are necessary. If all people become friends with one another, then Earth will one day be known as heaven. — Urusa Geelani, Class IX, Kesar Mahal
