But how far the tagline is true when it comes to reality is a big question. "I had learnt very good lesson from so called best buddy. I have been with her from 23 years from playschool to college. We shared everything from slate to books, chalk to pencils, and ink to pens, love, care, affection and memories. I had been there with her in the toughest of the tough situation and did help her in every aspect not expecting anything in return. I have been hurt all time, it's better to bend rather to break is what used to flash my head. But finally I realised, all these days I am being used and betrayed badly. The real truth came out at the end. Yes, Har Ek Friend Zaroori Hota Hai, if she wouldn't have been in my life, I wouldn't have learnt so many things," says Karthik, a student. Tulasi, a BSc student in Avanthi Degree College, had faced similar situation. She shares, "We were a group of five friends whom I trusted a lot. I shared everything with them including my secrets. They comforted me when I was going with hardships. I thought they were good enough, lately realised that they all make fun of my troubles and laugh about it. I treat them like my close friends, but they mock at me. Whenever they have some work with me, they treat me like their close friends." Hare ek friend zaroori hai, but the one who is most important is definitely the best friend. Sanjana Reddy shares, "I have learnt a valuable lesson in my teens when my best friend of seven years started avoiding me for no reason. After long irritating gossips and a cold war, she confessed to me that she won't want to talk to me anymore. I found out that she started liking the guy who admires me and when he showed immense interest in me, she got wild and hurt me. I realised that friends kamine bhi hote hai." While Sai, currently studying masters in JNTU-Hyderabad, says, "I met my friend when I was studying in Class II. It's been 20 years since we met. The chemistry between us is ultimate - we share everything from secrets to clothes, shoes bikes etc. Whatever he has, he shares with me and what I have, I share it with him. We always go by Jo Tera Hai Woh Mera." Ramya V from St. Francis says "I had a friend in my intermediate who was very close to me. She made me laugh when I forgot how to smile. She was a girl full of life. I always wanted a friend like her. After intermediate, we parted and joined in different colleges yet, when I feel low, I give her a call. I think everyone should have a friend who can lift up the spirit whenever you feel low."
