I read the article but that needs some clarity.
Love and Friendship are .are nothing more than Wishful thinking.
1. Everyone is looking for a person who for no reason, bail you out of your problems without expecting a reward or reciprocation. No one has ever found any such person in the life. But, is relentless search for one continues..
How does the man search for a friend?
He looks around for some one in the workplace or living places who has the same opinion on issues that you value. If it matches with yours, you hope he could be a friend that you are looking for.
1. There are a few who is clear that only those who is weak ( afraid to face the world all alone ) seeks someone to protect him in bad situations.
2. Some one who in illiterate and rich looks for an educated as a friend, to elevate himself in the public eye.
3. A timid guy with decent social position looks for an association of a strong man to suppliment and compliment his timidity.
The frienship breaks the moment it is found that any such expectations cannot be not met from the other.
There are people who keeps track of weak people and pretent to share their values but they wait for a right opportunity to decamp with a lookt
I have personally heard from a decently employed – Govt officer.
A two decade old friend trusted this officer friend and handed him with the cash of his new enterprise’s operations.
Within three months the FRIEND walked-off with a loot, breah of trust, from his friend: When asked why he did it, he replied:
Friend is a person who trusts you. Person who is not your friend doesnot trust you. So It is impossible to loot anyone who do not trust. So it is but logically alright to exploit any one who trust you.
He sounded perfectly logical.
Going through the news items, one find the number of persons in trouble by a friend is more than those troubled by enemies.
One who knows the weakness is a friend. So he is vulnerable.
Trouble from an enemy can be judged and protect ourselves but not a friend’s.
