I have many friends who are very dear to me. It is very difficult to choose the best out of them. Most of my time is spent in the company of John whom I call Johny. John has always been very close to me. He helps me in my studies and also plays hockey with me. He is one of the best centre-forwards in the hockey team of our school. His only ambition is to bring India on the Olympic map once again in this game. He is an ace sprinter and when he chases the ball, no one can recover the same from him. He was the captain of the state junior team that participated in the National Games
It is surprising to think of how he stands first in all the subjects in the class. Most of the players occupy backseat in your class and relax while the teacher explains something on the board, but Johny remains an enthusiastic learner in class too.
Last year, he took part in a Hindi play and enacted the role of a milkman so well that the audience was spell-bound with his performance. He had observed his milkman very closely and had noted all his actions before mimicking him on the stage.

It is hard to believe that he is the best debater as well. How can a single person combine all these
qualities? He has learnt this art from his father. His father taught him to put his heart and soul in everything he does. He often tells me that we should be like Arjuna who did not see anything but the eye of the bird when he shot the decisive arrow. We cannot achieve much because our minds are divided most of the time. When we study, we should study and forget everything about the games. When we play, our mind should not see anything but concentrate on the game. This is the secret of the success of my friend.
I wish that I could also follow in his footsteps!
