My best friend is my cousin. Her name is Nimisha but she is older than me so I call her Paridi. She loves to wear denim and crop tops, and her hobby is to dance. Paridi dances beautifully and she learns kathak. The way she fulfills her task is inspiring. She listens to everyone and respects her elders. Nimishadi helps me with my studies and she plays with me too. Whenever I go to her house we have a lot of fun. We play together, we sleep together and we eat together too and whenever she comes to my house we have a lot of fun. Paridi and I even go shopping together and we cook too, like baking cake and cookies. She loves cooking. Due to this pandemic, we are separated from each other. We can’t meet each other so we chat over the phone and make video calls to one another. On 24th of May her birthday, so I am planning to go to my grandmother’s house and decorate the house for her birthday. It will be a surprise party for her. I hope she will love the surprise. Nimishadi is my best friend and she is always there to cheer me up.
