There is a quote by Maya Angelou “I have learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. Nowadays we come across many people throughout the day , at work, in our blogs and mails, we even wish them on their birthdays and anniversaries just by a pop up message of Face Book, we should accept this trend, our relationships are evolved in to ‘E’ thing!!

Among all these gyration, we meet people sincere, appreciative, mighty and admiring. I found in some manufacturing industries, when a talented fresh candidate joins they assign an experienced member of the organization as mentor, who can walk through the process, teach, train and mold, it is best model to learn from experience. Mostly we use the term role model, usually they are big celebrities or leaders, I never had a thought of having anybody as my role model, the reasons may be I don’t know them personally or I am not ready for such a big challenge or it is not required for me!!, but I am inspired by the mentor, who understand, criticize, care, appreciate, share, teach and learn.

If you take a survey of your friends list, some of them you know since the child hood days, from school and colleges, from the work place, and lately some of our e-friendship may be turned in to a good friendship, time is not important for efficient friendship, or just by chatting few minutes every day and exchanging mails is not a measure for effective friendship, but it makes a difference by how much the friendship makes you feel। Recently I got whiff of mentor with a friend, hardly I know less than a year, we discuss a lot, share and update each other, I always trust my friendship, it never deceives me. Everybody is unique and will have some talents, when we share and discuss we learn more and vision becomes broader. I am enjoying all those blessings with my new friend, even though I have few other good friends, this new friend shows the other dimension of it, I am sure you will have such friends at least one or too many!!

  1. 'I always trust my friendship, it never deceives me'....i share the same thought like you.Friends and friendship are to be cherished.

    Thanks for sharing.

  1. That's an interesting post Shafi.
    Your friend sure is one lucky person!
    You've dedicated a blog eulogy!
    I agree with you that just exchanging
    emails and sharing a few chats online
    is no match for real life friendship.
    I guess when time is in such short supply
    'e-friendship'is the next best thing.
    (btw I like that term e-friendship:))
