Friend is the most intimate and important relation. This is differentiated by the fact that this is not blood relation. Thus friends are by your choice unlike blood relation like parents, siblings , cousins, uncles, aunts that are not by your choice but by accident of birth.


Friend is one you may communicate and otherwise interact freely without inhibitions. If there are any inhibitions, there is something lackin in friendship.


It is often said a friend in need is friend indeed. I do not agree with this definition. A friend may not be competent enough to help you in a situation. even then if he is sincere to you, he is your friend.


Absence of inhibitions should enable you to demand whatever you think, from your friend. The friend may unhesitatingly accept your demand or even unhesitatingly refuse. True friendship  is not any way affected by making demand or refusing it. This is simply absence of inhibitions and hesitation in mutual interactions.


Friendship need not be just physical intimacy. It is more a matter of mental identity. Lord Krishna had a friend sudama, whom he loved and had intimate friendship despite vast difference in status.


Lord Krishna had relations with three women. Rukmani-wife, Radha- beloved and Drupadi- friend. He had no romantic relation with Rumani unlike Radha and Rukmani. Drupadi was his friend.  Nobody except Lord Krishna was of help to Drupadi in her hour of crisis. This is because of friendship. There is no relation like friendship.

True friends are very precious. Its really hard to find people who are your well wishers. On those bleak days when things are not going your way, friends are rays of hope. In short friends are mirror where you can discover yourself :)

To me, a friend is someone who would be with you irrespective of the situation you are in, guide you and correct you when required, and acts in a way which would help u the best, not just for the present, but for the future too.

Consider this example,

There were four friends. one got into some trouble and got arrested and send to jail and seeing this one of them ran away(friend) the other came to police station with a lawyer to take him out. Do you knw the where is the fourth person ? He was along with the one who was taken to the jail.. ie if it is a real friend then he/she may not be with you in your happiness but will be with u in ur sorrows for sure.

I'm very much proud to say and lucky that I do have a real friend...

Simply,

friend
# A person whom one knows, likes, and trusts.
# A person whom one knows; an acquaintance.
# A person with whom one is allied in a struggle or cause; a comrade.
# One who supports, sympathizes with, or patronizes a group, cause, or movement:

(F)inds you in a
(R)ush of people
(I)nspires you to do something in life, catch your
(E)motions &
(N)ever leaves you till
(D)eath.

In my view a true friend is gods gift. Though we can not find any gift from god lively and true friend is one example of it. The relation is really unique in all aspects and has no boundaries.For example your true friend can be a person from US or even pakistan. Unique in the sense, there is no gender bias and religion specific. Even age is not a factor to have a good and true friend for example: I have a true friend of age 54 from USA and she always talk to me and share all  the memorable momonts. I am her grandson age but still she treat me as friend ..That is the power of friendship.


In relationship maybe we hide something that is very important in life. But a friend can accept all your thoughts and feelings by guiding you in own way. However, now-a-days the meaning of friendship has changed and it is very difficult to find a true friend.

Atul, 


There is an Jewish saying that goes:


"Who finds a faithful friend, finds a treasure."


CALVINIsn't it true?? True friends are very hard to find, but once found the bonding is for life. 


A true friend is someone who will not care whether you are dark-skinned or skinny or whether you look like someone who fell from a mountain top. He or she will love you just way you look and will expect you for whatever faults or imperfections you may have. 


A true friend will not flatter you with any false words to make you feel good but will gently guide you to look towards the inner beauty.


A true friend will laugh when you do, cry with you and will always be there for you when yor are alone.


A true friend is someone who will never judge you from your actions but will always try to understand why you did something.


A friend is like a flower, 


 a rose to be exact,


Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like a heart that goes
strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world
if we didn't have a friend.

There is no definition for the friend. It is defined that friend in need is a friend in deed.

A friend is one whom you can trust.......... a friend is someone who will always stay by you even in your hardest times.


Let's take a example-


Ask your friend that you will blindfold him and you will help him to cross the road. If he agrees he is your true friend. And now repeat the same on yourself.

Friends should have the freedom to be themselves in front of us not put on an act and also be able to criticise if and when necessary....A good friend need not be at your beck and call all the time but you know you can depend on him or her when you need them !
