Definition of Covalent Bond
A covalent bond is a chemical bond that involves the sharing of electron pairs between atoms. These electron pairs are known as shared pairs or bonding pairs and the stable balance of attractive and repulsive forces between atoms when they share electrons is known as covalent bonding.
Covalent bond is the strongest of all the bonds.
Well, here I am not talking about the scientific definition of the covalent bond. Neither its about the bond formed between the atoms.
Here the covalent bond is the bond between two friends. The bond of friendship. The bond that is formed between two people !
I met someone one and a half years ago. Thanks to my friend and the CONFAB program that was started by IIITD. When we met for the first time we both were strangers to each other. But eventually we became friends. I guess good friends. We took same courses, did projects together and had a great time.
It was then when we decided to call our bond of friendship the COVALENT BOND. A bond of friendship that can never be broken. A bond that will last forever.
It was something unique. Not just the term, but the feeling of having a friend with whom you share such a bond.
But does COVALENT BOND really exist ?
HAHAHA…It do exist in the science books. But in real life if you think of Covalent Bond in terms of friendship, it does not exist !
The person whom you once considered your best friend turns stranger. The bond that you think will never be broken, eventually with time weakens up and breaks.
A day comes when you ask your friend a Question:
ARE WE STILL FRIENDS LIKE WE WERE 1 YEAR AGO ?
And the Answer you get is:
I GUESS NO !
So this is the day when you realize the term COVALENT BOND was just a myth. And at the end what you are left with is some memories, a question – why did this happen and a broken bond.
