International Day for tolerance

International Tolerance Day is a day declared by UNESCO to raise public awareness of the dangers of disagreement, misunderstanding, and intolerance around the world since 1995. Today, UNESCO organizes various conferences and events every year on the occasion of this day of 16th November. At such events, there is a serious discussion about the promotion of tolerance and non-violence.

“Tolerance is respect, acceptance, and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world's cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human.” It is the basic theme of International Tolerance Day 2021.

All over the world, modernization is bringing about profound changes in societies. This is opening up huge opportunities for communication and exchange. At the same time, it raises new challenges, such as inequality and poverty. Now that we see the debate over the rise and fall of immoral politics and dividing strategies in various places, we are now rejecting diversity as a source of weakness.

Abuse, hatred, and terrorist attacks have not been able to unite the human community. In this context, the lack of tolerance and harmony are witnessed. Tolerance will play a key role in today's society to get rid of this growing inhuman complexity.

All cultures are different, all people are different, but the community of humanity is the same. Tolerance is the struggle for peace. Today, the day respects diversity and pluralism based on human rights. Let's practice tolerance in our lives, try to understand others, learn to reject all discrimination and hatred, and end imperialism.

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.
