International Friendship Day


Background of International friendship day
The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the UN General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures, and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.

The resolution emphasizes involving young people, as future leaders, in community activities that include different cultures and promote international understanding and respect for diversity.

To mark the International Day of Friendship the UN encourages governments, international organizations, and civil society groups to hold events, activities, and initiatives that contribute to the efforts of the international community towards promoting a dialogue among civilizations, solidarity, mutual understanding, and reconciliation.

The International Day of Friendship is an initiative that follows the proposal made by UNESCO defining the Culture of Peace as a set of values, attitudes, and behaviors that reject violence and endeavor to prevent conflicts by addressing their root causes to solve problems. It was then adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1997.

Sudama asked Krishna
Krishna, what is the meaning of friendship?
Krishna replied with great pomp, "Look at what is hidden in Sudama, where is the friendship and what is meant by selfishness is not friendship and it is necessary to be selfless to be a friend."

आढ् यतो वापि दरिद्रो वा दुःखित सुखितोऽपिवा ।
निर्दोषश्च सदोषश्च व्यस्यः परमा गतिः ॥

Meaning: Whether rich or poor, grieving or happy, innocent or alleged – friend is the biggest support of mankind.

Friends are the mirror of the heart, keep this relationship clean and open at all times.

Let's start making and making good friends, Hail.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
