True friends are those who help us in uplifting our life by cleansing our ideals and emotions. True friends cannot be won by social status, external scintillation or verbal assertions. A friendship knit by monetary bonds is disrupted as soon as one asks the loan to be repaid. How can friendship be cemented by words or by coins? The feeling of friendship must activate every nerve, permeate every blood-cell, and purify every emotional wave; it has no place for the slightest trace of egotism. The companionship which seeks to exploit or fleece for personal benefit cannot be elevated into the noble quality of friendship. A friend in need is a friend indeed. True friendship is when one friend truly understands the other and helps and guides him/her in the right path. There is no egotism; whether the friend hurt you or misunderstood you. It is very difficult to find such a friend. Perhaps, the only friend who can pass this rigorous test, is God.
