Women and friendship – By Tania Dey

It’s a common notion amongst men that two women can’t cohabit the planet in peace, and there’s a counter argument that two women when left alone will start gossiping inevitably, even if they are strangers. Here’s the fun fact: both can happen. The women may tear each other down or may help each other grow. It’s just a matter of clicking- if it’s a friendship, based on love and mutual understanding, chances are that it will blossom a lifetime.

The relationships between a man and a woman can be complex and often men are known to emotionally shut down, leaving the woman to drown in her own nest, that is the time when she seeks the comfort of another woman, who possibly empathizes with her too. Women have a comforting nature, and this is the balm of friendship.

Women as friends gang up together, go out for parties, hang out at malls, catch up movies, and coexist happily, much unlike the myth: women quarrel. They may even be spirited enough to beat up the villains who trouble their fellow female friends. A gang of women strung together is a blessing- one possibly couldn’t understand the spirit of that friendship until they are a part of it.

It usually is the women against the world- and it might be endless sessions of gossips with pillow fights sprinkled, or it might be hours of ranting with a bottle of rum. It could be endless poetries stashed under the eyelashes of wet eyes, or might be obscenities muttered under stifled breaths. To be blessed with such friends who could die for you, is indeed being on the top of the world. Often it implies a healthy bonding over advice, cups of coffee, art and literature, and sometimes God forbid heavy doses of puns that would make anyone blush. Just broke your heart, or your boyfriend spoiled the day, or the kids are away, or general menstrual blues, your girlfriends always shine. The joy of talking about the world behind the world, is a luxury that only a few have experienced. Breaking all stereotypes and shattering all myths, the secret allegiance of women thrives. Have you pledged “till death do us part” to your girlfriends yet? If you haven’t, you should, as soon as you can. It’s you and them against the world, remember?
