Yaaroen dosti badi hi haseen hai, ye na ho toh kya fir bolo ye zindagi hai…
I had an opportunity to render my ears to this song this evening. Luckily enough, the daily prompt was on the same topic.
This Hindi song talks about friendship describing it as the most beautiful element of life, without which life is incomplete.
I have been privileged enough to have several good friends. Few shared the instances of their life with me; I shared the topsy- turviness of my life with others. A host of friends- we would laugh incessantly sitting on the last bench of the class- both in school and during graduation. When we were together, we were always stupefied. In particular, I can recall one incident.
While I was in school, I was working on a science project with two friends of mine. After a long tiring day, one of my friends said, “I am about to collapse”. God alone knows what my state of mind was then; instead of gathering his remark figuratively, I imagined him being succumbed to detritus. I began staring at the aglet of his lace as if the center of mass of the debris coincided with it. When I narrated this to him, we both burst out into laughter. That was a hearty one.
This is the icing on the cake- one, that your friends help you when you need, second, you can be as stupid as you want to be in front of them without fearing a tarnished image. Be stupid, be intelligent, be a peeve, be a supporter, laugh, cry, share with them. You could tell them about a sweet guy you have a crush on, and bitch about his girlfriend at the same time.
As the song says- “ye na ho toh kya fir bolo ye zindagi hai…”
