'Firdous', in Arabic means 'Paradise', and Firdous also happens to be a very dear friend of mine. I first met her at college, and we hated each other so much initially, but since both of us were new, and we would sit together, I wouldn't stop irritating her, and she would laugh at my stupidity. It was much later that we actually started liking each other and found that we're so much alike. We think alike, and our jokes are equally lame. By the end of the first year, we became the best of friends. But after a year and a half, she told me that she's getting married and that she will not be coming to college anymore. I was really happy for she was getting married but at the same time I was also sad that I wouldn't have one such crazy person like her at college anymore. Life at college, without her, seemed so boring, but we continued to be in touch, I even attended her wedding and she seemed really happy. However, we talk at least once in a week now, and we talk for at least an hour, where I tell her about all the weird things happening at college and we would both start laughing together.
Firdous is one such friend from paradise itself. She is so calm and composed, always wears her million dollar smile, I have never seen her cry or get angry. I sometimes wonder, is she even real? Hehe, yes, she is, and I'm glad to have one such friend like Firdous! :) she makes me insane, yet keeps me sane. We are more like soul sisters and  I'm sure we'll continue to share this bonding till the end. <3
