Tauriq Fakier: Friendship through lockdown and beyond

When finding an old friend becomes an "outdated" course, we forget and refrain from any effort other than catching up with that interactive app we've just downloaded.


"Seriously? Did you just say: 'I found a new comrade, called 'Talking Tom', but I enjoy sharing deeper moments and memories with 'Talking Angela'?"


This might just be the case of a hiccup in search of our human buddies…


When it comes to an "anthropoid thing of the past", letting bygones be bygones is not what "good ol' times" should really be. They are indeed buried treasures that should not get hazy as we may never imagine a life without our nearest and dearest.


Be it a dull moment, be it a humourous and teasing one, call it a day. It was certainly easy on the soul (harmonious) and you'd still feel like you belong to the company.

They might be missing you right now


These are relationships that gives more than what it asks for.In essence it is a "no strings attached" association: My Mate; My Comrade; My Tormenter!; My Clown; My Assistance, My Lost Friend.


They might really be missing you right now…To have another moment shared, or maybe a tickle in the throat meme, or simply just a helping hand?


These are acts of basic human kindness – something we have forgotten that we ourselves have spurred on when we met them.


It's nothing less than a back-to-back commitment through sickness and in health — and through "need some cash and in wealth".
