My best friend
Manthan/Smita is my best friend. He/she is talkative but very clever. He/she is very punctual about the homework. He/she is polite and helpful. He/she is hardworking as well as helpful to others. Though, he/she is active but arrogant sometimes. Yet, he/she helps me in my need. According to me, a friend in need is a friend indeed. Friend plays an important role in everybody’s life. Man is known not by his name but by his company. The friend who always flatters is not a friend at all but a foe. Hence, one should identify the true friend. A true friend denotes the vices/wrong doings a friend. A true friend plays the role of a rose as well as thorn. In some situations. He /she is a path finder too. He/she is always ready to provide helping hand.
In this way, I love my friend as he/she is very kind as well as honest. Thus, everyone should have a friend.
