Let’s face it, you have more than one really close yaar, but that doesn’t make you an unfaithful bff. Whether it’s the yaar who always has your back or the one who just won’t be on time for ANYTHING, you’re bound to be surrounded by these truly unique individuals that you can count on.
1. The yaar your parents love (probably more than you)
No matter how afraid you are of facing your parents, this yaar definitely knows their way around them. From getting you permissions to that weekend getaway to calming them down with small talk — this friend is truly a saviour in the making!
2. Nothing “hush hush” about this yaar
We all have that one yaar who functions on a completely different decibel level than normal. And as much as you’d like to teach them the art of speaking softly, you know no one can halt a rickshaw or call for that masala dosa better than this yaar.
3. The ‘Weirder Than Thou’ yaar
Just when you thought that you hit a new benchmark on being the weirdest, there comes this yaar who can totally match your crazy. From completely off-tune singing sessions to the worst nicknames ever, this yaar is not afraid to be themselves around you!
4. The overly emotional yaar
Your yaari duties with this friend mostly involve carrying a box of tissues, whispering “it’s okay”, and having a sound explanation for why you’re not crying too. But when the tears do fall, you can be certain that this yaar knows exactly what you’re going through.
5. The 9 to 5 yaar
In a place where everyone wants to get ahead in life, there’s that one yaar who you can blindly trust with all your problems. You can always count on them to make your life less stressful, coffee more meaningful and board meetings less boring.
6. The “5 Minutes Away” yaar
You could be waiting all night for this yaar to arrive and yet they’d insist they are just “five minutes away”. Rest assured, when they arrive, you will have learned at least three good excuses to use the next time you’re late.
7. The brutally honest yaar
We all have that one yaar, who could have earned a degree in giving out reality checks. And even though they know all your pain points, they’ll never use them against you. After all, they have invented newer and funnier ways to make you laugh and cry at the same time.
8. The long distance yaar
Out of sight but always on your mind! There’s that one long distance yaar who could be on the other side of the world but just a ping away. There's no questioning the fact that their heart *beeps* for you.
But say what you will, at the end of the day our fondest memories are with this special bunch! Because after all, what's friendship without their craziness?
Ping them now and celebrate your yaari over a glass of McDowell’s No.1 whisky.
