Comparative literature is an academic field dealing with the study of literature and cultural expressions across linguistic, national, cultural, and interdisciplinary boundaries. Finding resemblance in the works of authors beyond socio cultural and ethnic is usually taken into the study. This present study explores the affinity between Francis Bacon from England and Thiruvalluvar from India on their handling of the theme of friendship. Friends play a vital role in one’s life. They are the good company and the guardian of our life. Without friend none can survive in this world. Friendship has no circumferences it does not require any specificity in forming. One should be careful in his or her selection of friend because friend has the abilities to transform one’s life but that transformations should be happened in the good way.
