World Art day

Art has always been a powerful medium for expression and exploration of emotions. It is for this reason that World Art Day is celebrated every year on 15th April to promote art and culture. Also, on this day, work is done to raise awareness about various arts among the general public.

For the first time, World Art Day was celebrated on 15 April 2012. In 2015, the day was officially celebrated in Los Angeles. World Art Day is a day dedicated by UNESCO which was announced in 2019 at the 40th session of the General Assembly of UNESCO.

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.
