True Friends By: Wonda L, Earth

Once upon a time there lived two great friends in a hamlet near Jaipur. Jay and Vijay had been friends since their childhood. Now they were studying in a college, which was at far distance from their place. In the way they had to cross a river, pass hills and sandy area too. They used to go to college together. Their friendship was famous in college.

One rainy day the two friends set out for college as usual. They were chatting while walking. Perhaps they were discussing some point of atomic theory which was taught on previous day. The two had different opinions. There began heated arguments. This was followed by abusive language by both sides. Things got so bad that in a fit of anger Jay slapped Vijay. Shell shocked Vijay stared at his friend and wrote on sand that “today my best friend slapped me.” Both resumed their walk but now they were silent. Meanwhile they reached the river which was overflowing today. Vijay was not a good swimmer. He stepped into the river but … began to drown and flow with force of water in the direction of the flood. Jay saw this and without thinking for a second jumped into the river. With difficulty he could drag Vijay out of the river. He helped Vijay restore his normal breath. When Vijay became normal, he wrote on a hill that “today my best friend saved my life.”

Jay who was observing all this could not help asking “why did you write it on sand when I slapped you and why are you writing on the hill when I’ve saved your life?” Vijay replied that “we should soon forget wrong done by our friends and dear ones as writing on sand gets erased in no time, but if they do something good for us we should always remember their kindness just as writing on stones is for ever.” Saying this Vijay hugged his friends and two wend to college as if nothing had happened.

One planet, lived by billions of people.  People with such unique differences.  We tend to be different in many ways, aspects, fields and even talents.  Others love the way you are, some don't.  Some are true to you, and there are not.  Some love the way you act, some were irritated.  Others love to socialize with you, some makes you down.  These are the proof that we were born different from each other.

We are different.  Yes, we are definitely unique from each one.  Maybe we tend to have similarities in other things, but we are still different in other aspects.  Everyone has its own capability to achieve their talents in their own way.  God showered us with talents.  Different talents in different fields.  Nobody doesn't has a talent.  We are born talented in our own way and we have to discover it in ourselves to improve our self-confidence.

We meet different people everyday.  Different faces, different personalities and different impressions we set to them.  Have you imagine yourself going out to a Sunday market, placing yourself in a noisy place?  Sometimes noise makes you irritated.  That's the difference between silent people and market people.  Market people love noise while silent don't.

We also tend to be different in attitudes and personalities.  There are friendly while there are not.  There are easy-going and loves partying while some prefer to be alone.  There are frank type while there are silent.  There are showcased with sense of humor and some are senseless.  There are brainy and there are rebel.

Sometimes, differences meant to be the root-cause to get envy to someone or something.  Have you come to think this, There are things that s/he is capable in doing such while you are not.  While there are also things that you are capable of doing while s/he can't.  That's the difference.  We differ in strength and will.  We should not compete with others because of the things we differ, rather we should compete with ourselves to make better.

There are lot of differences we have from each other but whats more important is to respect each differences that we tend to be.  We are all unique in our own way no matter what!...
