An Unexpected Friend
When I saw that team https://housing.com/ announced one more topic: #together- memorable time with someone special which brought optimism in my life. When I read this, many moments started flashing in front of my eyes. There were so many stories I wanted to write on this topic. But there is a story that I wanted to write from a long time but couldn’t find appropriate topic and conclusion for that. So I am writing that story under this topic.
Once, our college has arranged an industrial visit; the industry was in same city but it was about 35-40 km away from our college. Half of the students decided to travel by public transportation. But my group was too lazy for that, so we decided to go by bikes, but the problem was we were unable to arrange enough bikes. Everyone was trying to arrange bikes. I was at a hotel near college, and I was not worried because I knew that my friends will arrange the bikes. And at the last moment, as expected my friend called me and told that he arranged everything. When I was about to leave that hotel, a friend of mine who was once my classmate but because he flunked he was my junior now. He was a good friend of mine, but he had many family problems, he had to do some work of father in the morning and after college his parents expected him to come home and help them in their work. It was my first meeting with him on that respective day; he could see that I was in hurry. He came directly to me and handed his bike keys to me. I had nothing in my mind I just looked to him and asked him ‘what happened?’ He told me that he met someone in college who told him that I needed bike for industrial visit, and he knew that he could find me in that hotel so he came to me to give his bike. I was shocked because I was not thinking anything about bike at that moment. I told him that I will come late at night what will you do until I come? ‘I will wait at friends home until you come’, he said. Then I told that my friend has arranged one and I am going with him. He agreed. At that moment I became so overwhelmed that I was almost shivering. He was a person in my life with whom I used to spend time only because we were at the same college and knew each other. I never expected anything from him. And more than that even he never asked anything from me. But he came to me probably because someone in college told him that I needed bike desperately.
At that time I felt like I am the richest person to have friends like this. People like this around me, makes me go through any trouble. Whenever I am at the downs in my life, I just recall the moments like this and that makes me strong enough to survive. And people like this makes me crazy to do the good things, because I want to make feel other people the way my friends made me feel.
