On 27 July 2011, during its 65th Session, the United Nations General Assembly declared 30 July as “International Day of Friendship”. This declaration has a wide following in parts of South America and in South-Asian nations such as India, Nepal and Bangladesh. Some friends acknowledge each other with exchanges of gifts and cards on this day, using the day to foster friendship bonds. But in places such as India, more than 30 July, it is the first Sunday of August that has gained precedence to be observed as Friendship Day or International Day of Friendship.

There have been allegations that the day is a merely commercial exercise, meant to benefit sales of goods, items, and cards that sell like hotcakes on this day. The reason for this theory is that the first proposal to have a day allocated to the celebration of friendship came in 1930 from Joyce Hall, the founder of Hallmark cards who wanted 2 August to be the day when people celebrated their friendships by holiday celebrations.

There was initially a customer resistance as they thought that it was too obviously a commercial gimmick to promote greetings cards. While the sales of Friendship Day cards available in the US dwindled and Europe did not readily buy into the idea, it was majorly the Asian countries that kept the idea afloat and alive.

So be it 30 July 2020 or the forthcoming Sunday 2 August 2020, Indians who will be celebrating friendship day can savour the compilation of quotes we have ready for you.

So if you are one of those who promise their friend that you will be there ready to cheer him or her up through the blues, listen to their joys and woes, we wish you a Happy Friendship Day!

Friendship Day Poems:

There’s nane that’s blest of human kind, But the cheerful and the gay, man, Fal, la, la, &c. Here’s a bottle and an honest friend! What wad ye wish for mair, man? Wha kens, before his life may end, What his share may be o’ care, man? Then catch the moments as they fly, And use them as ye ought, man: Believe me, happiness is shy, And comes not aye when sought, man.

Your friendship much can make me blest, O why that bliss destroy! Why urge the only, one request You know I will deny! Your thought, if Love must harbour there, Conceal it in that thought; Nor cause me from my bosom tear The very friend I sought.

O could I give thee India’s wealth, As I this trifle send; Because thy joy in both would be To share them with a friend.  But golden sands did never grace The Heliconian stream; Then take what gold could never buy— An honest bard’s esteem

Friendship is not just the name of an ordinary feeling. but it is the name of the feelings of understanding, honesty and frankness between two persons. and these feelings keep the two very special persons bounded together and such a friendship lies in two of us

A Friend is a Treasure A friend is someone we turn to, when our spirits need a lift. A friend is someone we treasure, for our friendship is a gift. A friend is someone who fills our lives, with beauty, joy and grace. And make the world we live in, a better and happier place.

Friendships come and Friendships go Like wave upon the sand Like day and night Like birds in flight Like snowflakes when they land But you and I are something else Our friendship’s here to stay Like weeds and rocks and socks It never goes away!
