Friendship Day: Friendship knows no boundaries and most important bond in everyone’s life

Friendship is the purest and most important bond in everyone’s life. It is a relationship that helps to overcome any obstacle that comes in life. In such a situation, every year the first Sunday of August is celebrated as Friendship Day.

This time it is falling on 7th August. No matter how difficult a task may seem, having a friend by your side can make it easier. Friendship knows no boundaries and one who values ​​this relationship teaches him the art of caring and love from young to old.

While the United Nations has declared 30 July as the International Day of Friendship, India continues to celebrate it on the first Sunday of August.


Although Friendship Day is celebrated in India on the first Sunday of August, International Friendship Day is celebrated on 30th July all over the world.

The United Nations General Assembly recognized International Day of Friendship in 2011. The day aims to promote goodwill among nations, peoples, cultures and individuals as a means of bridging cultural divides and igniting peace initiatives. The resolution emphasizes the need to engage young people—the leaders of the future—in community activities that celebrate diversity and advance intercultural understanding.


The United Nations highlights that the world is grappling with issues and challenges such as violence, poverty and human rights abuses. These undermine the security, development, peace and social harmony among the world’s population. To overcome these challenges, friendship can serve as the simplest yet effective tool to preserve and promote a shared sense of human solidarity.

Friendship can help build stronger bonds of trust between people and communities so that we can contribute to building a peaceful and secure future together. It also instills a passion for a better world where all are united for a great cause.
