Brischik Sankranti | International Students day





In Nepal, meanwhile, winter has begun soon. By the end of the festivals, cold breezes had started the winter, hadn't it?

No matter how, now the Mangsir month has started, warm welcome to all in the Mangsir of 2078 BS.

This month is full of weddings, vows and other auspicious occasions. Clothing stores or gold shops are crowded. Wedding carriages and the joyous participation of the people on the streets, the sound of bands and panche baja with songs are seen often. From today the Sun enters Brischik from Tula, hence today is also called Brischik Sakranti. In the Hindu calendar, there are 12 Sankrantis of 12 months in total and today is the eighth Sankranti of this year.
Stay warm, stay happy and enjoy the day.

International Students day
The date of 17th November was chosen to be the International Students' Day due to the events that unfolded in Prague during World War II. Nine students were executed without trail in concentration camps on the 17th November 1939. Nowadays, November 17 marks a celebration of multiculturalism of international students. Understanding the history of world politics, "Students are the carriers of change" Students have become examples of great political, social and economic change. Every year on the 17th of November, World Student Day is celebrated around the world in a deeply non-political and multi-cultural way.

Today is the day that Nazi soldier's assassination and arrest of students at various universities in the Czech Republic in 1939, and the student's martyrdom, remembering the incident entire global community commemorates this day.

In Nepal too, the participation of students in various stages of movement and transformational steps is very important, The great politicians of the country have learned the virtues of politics by participating in the student movement since their student days. There are both good and bad sides to student politics. It is important to be independent, impartial and neutral in acquiring education.

Meaningful wishes of this day

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.
