Friends and Friendship

When a person is born ,he arrives with a lot of relationships already made.But friendship is a bond which he has the privilege to forge.Right from the time he grows older,goes to school then college,during the job he continuously makes new friends.But as he goes on making new friends ,save one or two his contacts start breaking with the older friends.With the friends he used to hang out whole day and night,now you even start forgetting them.
I was pondering over this phenomenon the day when one of my friends was switching over to some
other place.The ideas that I have mentioned above were going in my mind and I was thinking why this
thing occurs.Probably I am becoming selfish in my attitude.I tried to give a reason for this which says
every person has some emotional needs(The term may make friendship sound like a business),which
gets fulfilled by different persons at different time.The more closer a friend is to you, the more he
satisfies your need.When you move to a new surrounding ,you make some new contacts.Now your
same needs are satisfied by a different person.This way your older contacts start breaking and you
forge new bonds.But even if I forget them at times,I feel gratitude to my friends that they were there when I needed them.

One of my favourite bloggers GreatBong has this interesting take on Aishwarya-Abhishek saga.
Its quite amazing and the use of typical GreatBongian phrases ( Like Rarely since Rama vanquished Ravana has there been such celebration in the world of monkeys , Bangladesh’s biggest anti-vampire rocker and many more ) make it a treat to read.
Hats off ! GreatBong....
