    "Few relations in earth never die..!!". This is how the so called acronym "F.R.I.E.N.D" is decoded as.In solidarity, in cheerfulness, in guilty, in mourning, in rejoice, in stupidities; the single vow that stands undisturbed and unerupted is the unmarred relationship of Friends. Had the life abound with monotony and dullness with all aroma of gloom had there been no magical relation of friends.
