My Best Friend
Essay No. 01
Man is a social being and by instinct seeks companionship of others. In our journey through life we meet countless people, but with everyone we do not make friends. This is because the essential condition of friendship is affinity of mind, tastes and temperament. The few in whom we discover the affinity, we make friends with and they carve out an abiding place in our hearts.
Rahul is my best friend. He is my class-mate and neighbour He has a lovable character charming personality and enviable manners. He is son of a doctor. His mother is also a doctor and as such he has been brought up in a very healthy environment. He is the single child of his parents and hence the apple of their eye. Right from our early childhood, we played together and enjoyed each others company. I cannot recollect my first meeting with Rahul. He is most obedient to his parents and does not like to make them angry in any case.
Rahul is a gem in his studies. He is always first in our class. All the teachers are proud of his abilities as there is not a single question which he cannot answer or a single sum which he is not able to solve. He is a master of English language. He speaks very fluently and writes a good hand. He is a top-class debator and can speak on every topic with full confidence. He won many prizes in debates, competitions and quiz programmes.
Rahul has one more quality worth the name. He has a high taste for music and singing. He knows by heart almost all the Mini and non-filmi songs. He does not like pop songs. Gazals are his favourite field. He can imitate the Gazals sung by Mandi Hassan, Gulam All and Jagjit Singh. He tries to write his own Gazals also and sing them.
Rahul is not without a weakness. He does not take part in any games and sports. He never visits the playground. I have never seen him with a football, cricket bat or a hockey in his hand. He says it is not his field. He goes for long walks in the mornings but is not a sportsman. His ambition in life is to become a teacher. He wants to be a real teacher a benefactor of students and a storehouse of knowledge and ability and I am sure his ambition will be fulfilled some day.
I am proud of my friend and try to follow his footsteps in every field. I wish that our friendship should last forever because it is very difficult to find a real friend.

A friend in need is a friend indeed. This famous saying holds true. A true friend never sees only your good days and good deeds but he stands by you even on the darkest day of your life. Ramu Rao studies in my class. We have been friends since class two. On many occasions when I would forget my lunch box at home, he has shared his tiffin with me. Once when I nearly fought with the class bully he saved me. He thought that no good would come from bad actions and to get good things in life one must do good things too. Like you throw flowers towards the sky they fall on you. So if you were to throw a handful of stones, they would also fall on your head. I shall remember this always.
When I broke my leg, Ramu came to my house regularly with notes and homework. He helped me keep up with school work. There is so much I learn from him each day. He motivates me to do well in studies. He encourages me to take part in school games and literary activities.
I have learnt that there are fair-weather friends. These people will be with you only in good times and desert you the moment your chips are down. A good friend stands you in good stead all throughout your life. You get strength, inspiration and happiness in such a relationship. Ramu Rao has been all of this to me.
His virtue of patience and compassion for all is indeed amazing. That soft spoken countenance and dignity with which he conducts himself shows his good culture and upbringing. Even though he is from a typical middle class family, his fundamentals and beliefs are very strong. I am proud to be his friend. He is indeed my best friend.
