The most favourite friend, my companion all through time — right when I was a kid… should I say barely six months, to be precise! I’ve known him for so long and I know he will be there in the future as well. So trusted.
He is filled with mischief, romance, gloominess and countless other emotions. Indifferent to my reactions, he’s always there, for me. He sits by my side to help me even as I study. Great buddy that he is, he whispers … chats when I have no one to talk to or play with.
He entertains me when I am bored and thrills me when – at times – I cannot express. How wide he lets me imagine, powers me with knowledge, updates me with information … O God… how he knows so much, almost everything!
I haven’t come across someone or something more social — it helps the needy, is everyone’s desire and I am very proud to call him my friend. While he can enrage some, he can be an angel to others as well.
I know, with such a keen intellect and a thirst for more knowledge, he has many friends and fans.
You may think he is my father, my brother, my granddad, any of my relatives or maybe even the “Almighty God”! So if you have a unique special friend like mine NEVER EVER lose him! Well, my secret, amazing, wonderful friend is none other than a… book!
