Who is your friend?

Blog Posted:2/28/2016 8:48:00 AM

This the very first time in my life I have started a blog. I have a very good reason to do something new, that is, we have a friend here on the soup, Mr Pashang Salehi. He is a most interesting man. He is always extremely polite and if you have never read his poems you honestly have not done yourself any favor. He has a very unique style.The gentleman is very funny and always leaves comments to make one smile. I hadn't heard from him in a while and he had not posted any new poems, so I sent him a soupmail, just to check and see if he was alright. It took a couple of days but I received an answer.. Please permit me to share his words: " I am  not feeling good, getting old is not pleasant. if I knew that getting old is this painful, I would have stayed young forever. I need your prayer...Thanks Pashang."   Please take a minute of your time, perhaps even instead of reading one of my short poems, send Pashang a soupmail telling him you are praying for his health. I can assure you, he would do it for you! It will be nice to give him a smile and let him know he has friends who care. It doesn't matter if you know him or not. Just be a friend to a fellow human being.   Thank you for taking time to read this blog. Peace and God Bless you all. Prayer is just another word for well wishes, no religious conotations. We all have our own beliefs, please take time to make someone feel better. You might even make a new friend:)

Thank you, James for being a friend. There may come a day when any of us could be needing a prayer. I feel the response has been better than I could have imagined. There are so many wonderful people here and I am proud to call all of them FRIEND:)

this was very nice of you to do for him. That name sounds familiar and I bet i have seen his work before. I am going off for a while but will be sure to leave him some good wishes sometime today.

I appreciate your kind words but I am not self seeking. He is simply fellow human being who asks for our prayers and as caring people it is the least we can do. I would do the same for anyone as my prayer list is very long. Thank you for being a friend and God Bless you and your family:)

No sooner read than was done. I hope my words helped and gave him another light to go by.

Done!!!! Thank you for letting us know. I love his humor :) Rajat Kanti Chakrabarty is another person I have not heard from I wonder if something hasn't happen to him too. I've tried e-mailing him but the last I heard from him was 4/30/2015 PICK UP LINE is the last poem he posted. He also had a wonderful sense of humor.

I too miss Rajat ... So many people simply disappear and we have no way of contacting them ... my hubby can access my e mails if anything bad happened to me:-) hugs Jan xx

Thank you, nette. for being a friend. I am not seeking recognition. I just want Pashang to know we, as a community, care about him:)
Date: 2/28/2016 10:48:00 AM
It is refreshing to read such a kind hearted blog, that encourages all my Soup friends to reach out a hand in friendship, love and compassion. Lately, there have been too many walls erected, stones thrown, tears, anger, or assumptions tossed around that have clouded our eyes, and altered the atmosphere. Thank you for trusting us to do the right thing, and letting us know a friend is in need of our friendship. We can all make this a kinder place to be. Thank you, Daniel..will do as you suggested :)
