F.R.I.E.N.D.S!!!! Nay friends
Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing, Ross Geller… m sure most of us love these characters… the reason being, the friendship they share is exquisite… n moreover all of us want to have friends like them.
We (me and three other friends of mine) have also been a dying heart of fan of this series and had wished to have such friends. But for four long years we didn’t realize what we mean to each other… every time we used to watch an episode, we commented ‘how lucky yaar, we wish even we had such friends!!!’
It was only when one of us fell terribly ill and was hospitalized; we realized what we mean to each other… I cannot forget those sleepless nights… those visits to hospital… those taxi rides… those visits to market for medicines n fruits… cooking for each other… at times even fighting with each other… trying to make each other laugh even when you are most depressed… tears for each other and most of all caring for each other.
And the most memorable part of the whole affair was when one of us said one day ‘today while watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S, I felt nothing… we are better than them’. This one statement left us all in goose flesh and tears. We spent all four years together, freaked out, had fun, had fights, but its only in the last year we realized that “being good friends is much more than just getting drunk together” and this is reason why we didn’t cry while parting, because we never said adieu… we are in a too strong relationship to part… we are special gems to each other and will always keep each other in a very safe vault called HEART… cheers!!!

"I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth,
I knew not where;
For so swiftly it flew,
the sight Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth,
I knew not where;
For, who has sight so keen and strong
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward,
in an oakI found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend."
-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Friends are indeed a blessing and it's really fortunate that you guys have each other for comfort. May your tribe increase... Amen!

(P.S. Me missing F.R.I.E.N.D.S... will the gang of 4 please convince Chandler/Joey/Ross/Phoebe/Rachel/Monica to return for just one last season...)
