    Howdy Community! Hope y’all are having a fantastic time. On this heavily nostalgic day of Friendship Day here in India, I couldn’t not write a thread dedicated to a few of the best friends I have ever had the pleasure of knowing through this wonderful community that we’ve built.

    For me, the first memory that comes to mind of friendship day is the hands full of bands back in school. Everyone awaited this day with the utmost excitement with the highest hopes of ending up with the most bands on their hands. That ritual really brought out unreal joy and cheer everywhere. Often, I wouldn’t take off the bands for days and keep them on superstitiously. In hindsight, even though it was really puerile, it really reminded me of being grateful for my friends.

    As school ended and everyone moved on to different paths, it would have been difficult to keep in touch with most of my schoolmates had it not been for the social media boom. Especially in recent times where we’ve been confined to the limits of our homes for the majority of the time. Being able to connect with friends and family at a few touches is really a blessing.

    Throughout the past year and a half, I’ve somehow grown closer and closer to my friends mostly because we play multiplayer games more often! Not only my past mates, but I have had the pleasure of making absolutely gems of friends online, especially through the OnePlus community. I can never be grateful enough for all of you guys!

    If I start tagging, the list would really be endless and I still might miss a few people. So, a very warm hug and a HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY to all of the OnePlus Community. Thank you for being the kindest, welcoming, and insightful community in the tech universe.

    Please feel free to tag your friends and tell them you love them in the comments! We’d love to hear your stories as well!

    Thanks @yashonagori for the wonderful thread on a very special day.

    The way we celebrate the day in our school/college days and you took me to that stone Age when we have more of a real friendship than a digital one. God! I am getting old.

    I have tried to tag as many friends as I can in this community and still missed a lot.

    Thanks again for the thread. .
    @Yash Pratap Singh. Look Yash heard of you.
