I have several friends at school. Some are my school fellows and some are my class fellows. But the best among them is Sohail , who is my class fellow.
Sohail comes of a very respectable family. He is of my age. But he is much taller than I in size. He has a very fair colour. He has curly hair, milky teeth and a pair of beautiful eyes. He has a very cheerful nature. He has been with me for two years. I never found him rough and rude. His face is always smiling. Even if any boy abuses him, he never loses his temper. From his appearance and his behavior it appears as if he were a saint.
Sohail is very neat and clean in his dress. He likes wearing a white shirt, a pant and black shoes. His clothes are always costly but never showy. His dress gives him a respectable look. It shows that he is not foppish at all. You will never find his clothes covered with ink spots or dirt.
In the hostel he is my room-mate. At school he sits on the same desk with me. We are together for the greater part of the day. We study together. We play together. We go to kitchen together to have our meals. We generally eat out of one and the same plate. Other boys envy our friendship. But we do not mind it.
Sohail is very good at his lessons. He never neglects his studies. He never gives the teacher a chance of complaint. In the last examination he stood second in the class, but was first in English and Mathematics. Sindhi is his weak subject. But he is doing his best to make up his weakness. I hope he will do well in the next examination. His father can well keep a coach for him, but he does not like the idea. He wishes to stand on his own legs.
My best friend is active and smart. He is good at both studies and games. He is loved by the teachers. He is frank and honest. He never tells a lie. He does not feel jealous of any body. He has sportsman spirit. He helps the weak boys in their lessons. He is regular in his habits.
He never quarrels with anyone in the school or outside. He does not call names. He is not proud of his position in the class. Every year he gets prize both in studies and games. He helps his parents in the house. He loves hard work and honest labour. He never wastes his time at home or school.
Sohail is a boy of excellent moral character. He has got high ideals before him. He is expected to make a great man in the years to come. All his qualities have attracted me. I cannot find a more ideal friend than Sohail.
