Yaar is a Hindi word for a friend. When you say yaar, it denotes a person who is very close to you and your heart. Every friend cannot be a yaar. Yaar is something very special. When I try to find out a yaar among my friends, I find only two or three. Your yaar knows you well. He is a person who stands by you when you need help.
Rakesh is my yaar, I can say proudly. He is a friend without any demand or without any self interest. I would like to share an anecdote. Once I had to take part in a drama organized by Drama Society of my area. Due to some reason I was unable to do a role in that play. So, I refused to take part in that drama two days after role distribution. My role was given to some other person. Few members of my Drama Society planned to boycott me on the final day of the play by not allowing me to even come near the stage or green room. I was completely unknown to all these things. On that final day, Rakesh came to me and informed me about all these things. I was very worried to know all these. So, I decided to not to go to that place where it was played.
Drama started well. I was able to hear the opening speech of the director on loudspeaker. Suddenly, one of the actors was not present there. He had gone to hospital due to some emergency. Now whole Drama Society was in deep trouble because they didn’t know who would play that role.
Rakesh proposed my name to the director of the play. There was no option before him. So, all the members of Drama Society came to my place to convince me. I just refused to do the role. I also told them I knew everything that they were gossiping about me.
Then Rakesh called me in the other room and tried to convince that it was about the prestige of the Drama Society. Firstly I denied doing this role as one of the members told that I was not permitted to be on the stage. But any how I got convinced and I played that role successfully.
Next day, all of us were gathered at a function. Many people came to me and just applauded me for the role I played. This incident took me very close to Rakesh. This is a small anecdote. We have many anecdotes about my friendship to share.
When I think about that incident even today, I feel very grateful to Rakesh. Many a times he proved that he is my perfect yaar. It is not that we do not have different opinions. We differ on many topics but overall he is my well wisher and always thinks good for me.
