Introduction: Gifts are a token of love and affection. Though I’ve given numerous gifts to various people in my life, I vividly remember a special gift I gave to my best friend Prakash.

Body: It was Prakash’s birthday in 2016. I knew that he always wanted an electric guitar since he was a member of a locally famous rock band. However, he could not afford the costly guitar. So I purchased it on his 20th birthday from a famous music store in Connaught Place, New Delhi. Prakash’s happiness was evident not only from a huge smile on his face but also from tears in his eyes. He hugs me tight and said two priceless words “Thank You”.
