They say ‘love is unstoppable, love is emotional, love is unimaginable, love is destiny, but friendship is one percent more than love’ and rightly so. Nobody in this world can survive without friends. Right from your first day at school where you found people, with who you didn’t mind sharing your tiffin, to your last day at college where you found people, with who you could freely share your happiest and your lowest. We’ve all seen the highs and lows of friendships, the good and the bad. And one can vouch, that the good has always overpowered the bad.
One very significant day in our lives is when we celebrate friendship day. Although different from the way we celebrated when we were younger, the emotions still stay the same. From running around with our friendship bands to give them to our friends, to buying special friendship day bands for our BFF’s, we’ve done it all. But now, with everything happening around, a lot of our celebrations and ways of gifting have evolved and taken the virtual route. People today send messages through social media, get on video calls, send personalized video messages from their favorite celebrities or even sometimes plan trips with their closest friends because everyone’s living in different corners of the world.
In a busy world like ours, we are often in such a hurry to get things done and reach places, that we sometimes, forget the value of the moment we’re presently living in. So now, just sit back (and straighten that hunch!), take a deep breath and think about your favorite moments in school with your friends. Be it the fun you had, the havoc you created together, the tiffin’s you shared among each other during your recess, the punishments you received together like even getting thrown out of class for talking too much. You may have done things way worse back then but one thing you know is that these memories that were created never fail to bring a smile to your face. Even with you and your college buddies bunking class and chilling in the canteen, pranking your classmates and again getting thrown out of class for being the loud bunch in a corner, these things make you wish you could turn back the time, don’t they? But if there’s one thing in common is that they’ve always been your pillar of strength when the whole world has been against you. They know your deepest, darkest, silliest secrets, they know the names of your crushes (even in order of preference), your favorite food that will cheer you up on a bad day and most of all, they can comfort you like your mum, yell at you like your dad, join in your not-so-well thought decisions like your siblings and through it all love you unconditionally, no questions asked.
This friendship day, let’s look back to some of our best moments with our friends, no matter how close or far, no matter if we’re in touch or not. They’ve been a big part of our lives and it’s important to let them know that. Although, meeting up may not necessarily be a feasible option and a phone call saying ‘Happy Friendship Day’ may seem too lustreless, there’s one way to stand out and make it a day they’ll never forget. It’s an easy process that will need a little bit of your input and won’t even take much of your time. All you need to do is, find out their favorite celebrity, television actor, film star or even sports personality that they are obsessed with. If you already know that, congrats on being a good listener but if you don’t, now’s the time you put your stalking skills to use!
If you’re confused about what you’re up to at this point, let me tell you, you’re about to make their dream come true by helping them get closer to their favorite celebrity through a platform called tring. So, tring is a celebrity engagement platform with over 7000+ celebrities which helps to bridge the gap between fans and their favourite celebrities through personalized celebrity video messages, live calls and even DM’s. All you need to do is head on over to www.tring.co.in and select the celebrity that your friend loves and personalize the message you wish to convey. You can send in your favorite memory with your friend or even talk about how much they mean to you or even talk about your favorite embarrassing moment in your friendship. Once you’re done with that, you just need to complete the booking and wait for the video to arrive. You can surprise them with the video on friendship day and help revive the good old memories. Let's not forget the friends who may have not remained very close to us but have still played an important role in our lives at some point in time. It doesn’t hurt to pick up the phone and say hello but if you’re someone who finds it difficult to express your feelings directly, tring is the way for you! You’re not only sending them a sweet message but you're also doing it in a fun and creative way by involving their favorite celebrities and not just a bland ‘Happy Friendship Day’. This moment is going to be cherished forever and your gift will turn into an unforgettable memory in your friendship.
