589. Happy Friends Hip Day

Today is Friendship day it seems. I came to know about it through facebook. My News feed is crowded with all friendship day messages. People copy some quotes and post it as their status message and even go on to the extent of tagging me to those nonsensical messages. 

One guy posted a picture of Rajnikanth and Mammooty from the movie thalapathy and tagged me and said "Our friendship is like this". I was like "Are you serious mister? We have not talked in ages, and I don't even know what is going on in your life. Why suddenly so much love and affection?"

Is it because he loves to recognize me or Is it because he loves to recognize a particular day and used my name for that purpose? I really don't know the intent. In future someone might even say that friendship day is a day that is celebrated to honor the friendship between Rajnikanth and Mammooty. (Varalaaru Romba Mukkiyam Amaicharey)

Friendship is pure like these two boys who have bared it all to do the metabolic activity. They would have learnt this technique from the four lions that stand behind each other in Ashoka Pillar. But many of us do not learn anything from friendship unlike these two boys.

We are all sucked into this whole big thing of making some day popular and then wishing each other on that day and spreading artificial fake plastic love that does not mean anything to anyone. In fact the whole friendship day concept was started by Hallmark cards to sell their greeting cards. 

Friendship is a hard word to explain. No one knows what it actually means and I am not gonna give any definition to it. I suck at that. But even if I try, the closest example I can give is Someone who can give their life for you is a friend. See I told you guys! I suck at that.

Let me come back to the topic. Posting a picture of two puppy dogs doesn't make you and me friends. 
Another person just tagged in a picture that had a shoe flower in it. How on earth does that convey the meaning of friendship to me? 

How on earth would posting the video "Hai Dostee" song on my wall convey your friendship to me when  you don't even bother to help me when I was in need?  Friendship is more than all these things. I would rather celebrate Friends Hip day because at least it has some meaning it. Friends who do not have hips - please excuse me. (TR Rajender is excluded)

I wanted to post my own hip to send a strong message to all my readers. But If I post my hip picture, people might start donating to this page thinking that it is a page for raising funds for needy people from Somalia. 

Happy Friends Hip day to all my friends.



  1. Roger: "Friendship is a hard word to explain. No one knows what it actually means and I am not gonna give any definition to it." I would say the same thing about love and a lot of other 'things', which get paraded on social media on these so-called important days.

    Happy Friends Hip day to you too, Chriz. :D

  2. Hip ok, yaaru antha frend good enough to give you pic?

  3. Yes true friendship is very difficult to explain, you can only cherish it if you are blessed with one.
