Friendship day does not just signify a day, its a reminder that everyone is capable of inter-bonding with another regardless of any race, creed, ethnicity… to remove all the hate, and spread tolerance, love and friendship.
Life is precious, and brings you many friends along the way. I started my journey from Middle School in my city Chakwal. I still remember by first day like it was just yesterday.. because of the first person I met. It was Baddar… this kid here shared his seat with a chubby like me lol. It was the first day, he showed me around, gave me company.. I am proud to call him the first real friend I had. We bonded over time and eventually were best friend for a long period of time… couldn’t stay mad at each other. It was really, really nice. I miss those day’s with em, I am happy I have them as memories with me.
There were also others who were my friends in Middle school to High school, they were lovely friends too. Memories with them are priceless no matter what. We have had fights, parties, gatherings, many things… thank you guys for being my childhood friends. Mehdi, Tabi, Bilawal, Dawood, Shehryar, Ch Hassan, Paris, Zain, Mansoor, Zain, Tahir.
After that it was college period – college life was fun, interesting, new, something really fun. I met some really nice friends. I remember the first day, a huge class.. both boys and girls – lots of noise!
I made a deep friendship bond with a classmate Naveed, he was a great person, a great friend over the years. We had some really nice moments, and each memory is fresh in my mind like from last week. Other great friends from college were Shah Faisal, Jahanzeb, Ahsan, Waqar.
From female classmates I made great conversation, study interaction with many… the best friend I made was with Dua. We had a great time, studied together… learned from each other. Shared events and memories. Other good friends were Mahwish, Zartab, Beenish, Sehreen.
University came with new challenges and interactions. It was different because it was an long distance program, so physical social interaction is very limited but there are two very special friends that never let me feel the loss of that Mariam Kamran and Rida Zehra. They really gave me a life time I enjoyed deeply.. I thank you both for the time spent, and the time that’ll we’ll have together to come.
I also made another friend who eventually became my best friend in the university period, we recently have to split ways due to many differences we could not co-exist. I wish it hadn’t happened but it did, and I leave with good memories, and a hope for an amazing life for her to come, a happy one. Thank you Khadeeja.
I have also known Iqra Tofiq from the start, but we didn’t get to talk much before, but now we have a grown closer… I am hoping we’ll be friends for a long time and have some really nice moments.
I was also given a lovely nickname by these uni friends, which is Sherman. Haha, love the name, thank you guys.
On this journey until now, I have also met many friends from aside the institutions I have been at, Facebook has been a major source of allowing me to meet some very really interesting and lovely people.
Hera Hussain my talented, lovely boss for Chayn.
Sadaf Mujeeb is the best animal activist I have met yet. She is the founder of People For Animal Rights (PFAR). I would love to be at her level of animal activism someday soon.
Sahir Shah is another awesome friend, I am proud to have, he’s smart and loves to learn and share.
Pony Stark is one of the most influential, passionate, critic person I have come across, and I love all what he stands for, and I stand for it with him.
Ayesha Sultana met her a while ago, she has accomplished a lot, honoured to have her as a friend.
Areesha Khuwaja has a lovely taste in books, movies and TV shows.
Nabiha Meher has been one of the most strong, and different person I have met. She is indeed a one in a million, of the people I’ll meet in my lifetime.
Ah there are so many friends to name… I’ll name em all, slowly. But I want to thank each and everyone of my friends of sharing, interacting and talking to me over the time, it has been a lovely time, and looking forward to more breathtaking moments.
