He is one of the best students of our class. He understands things quickly. He is a bright and active. He is very punctual. He is obedient and respectful. He is soft-spoken. He is good in studies. He is not a book-worm. He reads extra books and is not confined to his textbooks. He takes interest in current affairs and often discusses with me important issues of the day. His approach is direct but impartial. He is tolerant, broadminded and co-operative. He is fond of visiting restaurant and he takes his lunch outside on Sundays. He is also found of seeing movies in theater. Sometimes, he compels me to accompany him even though I have seen that particular movie. In fact, nobody is absolutely free form shortcomings. I allows him to enjoy such liberties and he do not cross the limit. He is a good player of badminton but he has never played any university match. He is always open to argument. He is a well-mannered boy. I am really proud of him.

My Best Friend
Man is a social being and by instinct seeks companionship of others. In our journey through life we meet countless people, but with everyone we do not make friends. This is because the essential condition of friendship is affinity of mind, tastes and temperament. The few in who we discover the affinity, we make friends with and they carve out an abiding place in our hearts.
Rahul is my best friend. He is my class- mate and neighbour. He has a lovable character, charming personality and enviable manners. He is son of a doctor. His mother is also a doctor and as such he has been brought up in a very healthy environment. He is the single child of his parents and hence the apple of their eye. Right from our early childhood, we played together and enjoyed each other’s company. I cannot recollect my first meeting with Rahul. He is most obedient to his parents and does not like to make them angry in any case.
Rahul is a gem in his studies. He is always first in our class. All the teachers are proud of his abilities as there is not a single question which he cannot answer or a single sum which he is not able to solve. He is a pastmaster of English language. He speaks very fluently and writes a good hand. He is a top class debater and can speak on every topic with full confidence. He won many prizes in debates, competitions and quiz programmes.
Rahul has one more quality worth the name. he has a high taste for music and singing. He knows by heart almost all the filmi and on- filmi songs. He does not like pop songs. Gazals are his favourite field. He can imitate the Gazals sung by Mahdi Hassan, Gulam Ali and Jagjit Singh. He tried to write his own Gazals also and sing them.
Rahul is not without weakness. He does not take part in any games and sports. he never visits the playground. I have never seen him with a football, cricket bat or a hockey in his hand. He says it is not his field. He goes for long walks in the mornings but is not a sportsman. His ambition in life is to become a teacher. He wants to be real teacher, a benefactor of students and a storehouse of knowledge and ability and I am sure his ambition will be fulfilled some day.
I am proud of my friend and try to follow his footsteps in every field. I wish that our friendship should last forever because it is very difficult to find a real friend.

My Best Friend
Everyone needs a best friend in life. We need someone whom we can trust. A best friend should be there for us all the time, no matter what the situation may be. In my case, I have known my best friend for my entire life. My best friend happens to be my younger sister, Sunita. She is only thirteen months younger than I am, so we are very close. She has taught me how to trust people, how to help me with my problems, and how to open up as an individual. I always had a hard time learning how to trust people. The one person I found that I could trust with everything was my sister Sunita. I could always go to her and let her know if I had done something wrong. She would assure me that she would not tell anyone if I didn’t want her to. I knew all my secrets would be safe with her and that nobody would find out unless I told them.
Problem solving was another thing that Sunita could help me with. Whenever I had a problem that I couldn’t quite work out myself, I went to her. Whether it had to do with boys, school work, sports, or even just things running through my mind, she always solved my problems. It’s like she knew all the answers for all my questions. She is a wonderful person to go to if you need advice or some kind of guidance in life. I was always a shy individual. I hardly ever spoke up or let myself be recognized. This is where my sister came and let me out of my shell. She made me go up to random people and just strike up a conversation with them. Sometimes that was hard and a little embarrassing, but in the end it ended up helping me. She showed me how to be more outgoing and to voice my opinion when it was necessary. When I become comfortable around a group of people, I usually tend to talk a lot more. I start up conversations and make many jokes. I like to see people have a good time, and when others are laughing, I usually am too. As a result of this, I became more social in school and seem to have a more enjoyable time at my job. Being a more outgoing person helped me to feel better about myself and more confident when I was around other people. It allowed me to open up and get to know a lot of people I had once overlooked as potential friends. Sunita and I do everything together. We went to all the high school football games, ran track, and went to the movies together. We had a dance class with each other and the teacher wanted to split us up in case of any fighting that may have occurred. That wasn’t a problem for us. Sunita and I even worked for a while together at Applebee’s. Most people couldn’t believe how well we got along, considering we were sisters. We even started going to church together and went on retreats. If you saw one of us, usually the other would be right behind.
I was disappointed that she wasn’t going to be with me anymore when I completed my school, but I was also happy for her because I knew she would be happy. We are four hours away from each other today. Even though we talk every day, we are both making new friends and changing our lives one day at a time. I know that I can call her anytime and she will be there for me. To this day, she is my best friend in the entire world. She is always there for me no matter what the reason may be. If it weren’t for Sunita, I don’t even know where I would be today. It is important that everyone has someone who they can trust and count on in life. She is my best friend who has molded me into the person I am today.

Books are a medium to transport us to another world. To anyone else, they may look like pages full of dull print, but to me, they open a door to a wondrous world of magic, mystery, wild imagination, legendary icons and ordinary heroes, adventure, love... all created through a fantastic interplay of words.
Being an only child, books have always been and will be, my best friends. They make me think about others' feelings and appreciate the world and its beings in a different light. Books intrigue me. They induce strong feelings in me and keep me on edge till the very end.
I'm a fan of fiction but I also read non-fiction. The pull for fiction comes from the fact the author builds an entire world that may not exist but seems very true when savoured through the words. I think that’s part of the reason. But books also engage me because of the fact that reality is sometimes too hard to handle and I find fictional characters much more friendly and appealing than those around me.
My parents would buy me books from when I was very young. Till the moment I die, I will be surrounded by books,books,books. And I do not think anyone needs a reason to read. It is a whole world always open to anyone willing to enter it.
What pains me is the fact that nowadays no one gives literature the importance it deserves. I have always relished reading and enjoy my language classes the most at school.
I think I mostly read sitting on the bed cross-legged with my book balanced on a pillow. You see, I tend to take good care of books, almost as if they have a life of their own. Even a tiny bend of the cover can get me real angry and I will do my best to restore it to normal. While reading, I tend to toss and turn or sit up according to the situation in the story.
There aren't many people in my family who go on reading like I do. Mom mostly buys me the books I want but when I put studies at stake, she turns furious. My cousin reads a bit on my compulsion but that is all. I remember she once called me 'Shakespeare'! I am not anywhere that good, but I want to read all the books I can before my last breath. So now, I will get going; I have got a book to read!
