Friendshipday.......errr.....what do I call it?






Good that 31st August was a Saturday. I saw my cell phone chirping at random intervals on Saturday night. I was surprised to see messages from people I never bothered to talk to, wishsing me Happy Friendshipday. Most of them are just strangers to me, I dont even talk to them regularly. Then , one idea struck my mind...let me see how many of my really close friends send this message. But, I didnt send any message to any of my friends. So, do I expect any mesasage from them????....Blank...Man...I never bothered whether my friends wished me on that night , because I know friendship doesnt need all these things.

I started thinking what exactly is this idea of friendship. I felt really strange to think of one person whom I can call a very good friend., because a friend is someone who knows you in and out. wait.....is my definition of friendship correct????...Many people esp in Bangalore,...call whoever they know "friends"...err I am not talking about that Series on Star World. I dont kow...I cannot call any one my friend just like that....because I attach some value to it and it is something beyond loafing around and freaking around.

You meet someone over a chat or online forum and suddenly he becomes your friend...BS....you dont even know an ioata about him/her. But, it is okey because people behave errr pretend nice with the people they dont know..and someone else recently gave me a gyan saying that you should not be selfish in Friendship.......BS...what is that Selfishness.......goddd....I get goose pimples to think about not being selfish.....someone( so called friend ) asks for your help and you are not in a situation to help though you can help....gawd...they start calling you selfish and conceited....

I give up....if it is helping and taking help in return which defienes friendship....we better call it Business rather than friendship.....I got confused thinking about all these things Friendship and Selfishness......

I am happy to breathe for my self and eat for myself....I can not breathe and eat for someone else.....

The Selfish.....errr most selfish.....I am proud of it........................
