They say that our yaars are the family we choose for ourselves. No matter if we're happy or sad, we turn to them to share our feelings. Who but our sacha yaars would take out the time to listen to our non-stop cribbing over the phone? Life without them would be a dull affair. 

They are the custodians of our secrets and know us better than ourselves. They're the ones who come to our rescue in time of need and put a smile on our face. No matter where life takes us, we know they have our back. 

Over the years, the small screen has aired many fabulous TV shows that brought alive this yaari on our television screens. These desi and pardesi shows beautifully portrayed what our relationship with our yaars looks like.

Here is a list of our favourite television yaars and their yaaris.

1. F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Wouldn’t it be amazing living with or right next to your BFFS? This iconic TV show is the most popular show ever. The friendship between all of them is truly magical. The jodi of Joey and Chandler living across the hall to Monica and Rachel and their misadventures made us miss our own saccha yaars. Well, you know how the show's opening title credits gos, "I'll be there for you"

The Big Bang Theory is not just about nerds and science — it's about yaars. This hit show brilliantly portrays yaars and their har din ki takraar-that we have come to love. From the unlikely relationship between Leonard and Sheldon to the one between Penny and Amy, this show gave us some incredibly happy and funny moments to cherish. TBBT also gave us one of the most important ways to explain yaari - the Friendship Algorithm.
