Well, childhood has its specialty and magic and sometimes childhood friends are unforgettable. One such friend I recall was Dipu who I still remember. Our friendship lasted only for a year and after that, he moved to a different city with his parents. I met him at our first day in school.

I was late for school due to a bad traffic and when I reached my classroom, I thought that all of the seats have been occupied and I was desperately looking for a place to sit. The class teacher asked my name and announced to make a seat for me. I found that one of the boys was asking me to go over there and sit beside him. This very boy was Dipu and I was grateful to him.

In the tiffin time, I shared my foods with him and talked about lots of things. From that next day, we started sitting next to each other and our friendship began to flourish. I found that he collects stamps as a hobby and I was excited to find this common hobby between us. We were very close friends and after one year I heard that he would be moving to a new city as his father has been transferred there.


We did a lot of interesting and fun stuff together. At school, we played footballs and other games in the interval period.


He was a lively and helpful boy who liked me very much. We had many things in common and we helped each other on our studies. Since I enjoyed participating different activities with him, I liked him as a friend as well. We had a strong bonding and intimate friendship between us. We tried to help each other whenever needed.
