Good morning/Good afternoon/Good evening my friends out there! This is 11:00pm. 14th May, 2013, Tuesday in India. Hope you all are doing well! I’m trying to be fine with an excessive hot weather!!
Friends, we know that the month May always come with a lots of festivals and significant days. Tomorrow is another day that we can celebrate as the ‘International Family Day’. What is this? I am going to share my small knowledge about it.
International Day of the Families is celebrated on 15 May on the global platform. This day has been celebrated as International Day of the Families since 1995. The year 1994 was declared as International year of families by United Nations. It is celebrated every year to create awareness about the importance of families among people in modern times. These days, people are switching more towards solitary and independent mode of lifestyle and are rather moving away from the beautiful institution of society called “Family".
Various programs are organized all over the world to commemorate the day by planning different workshops, seminars and policy meetings for public officials and exhibitions. All programs are supported by United Nations - Division for Social Policy and Development. Different campaigns are also launched on International Day of Families to fortify and support family units. Last Sunday, 12th May we have celebrated a very special day – ‘Mother’s Day’! I will say about my thoughts and emotions about the day in my next post. Please keep in touch and keep watching my blogs.
Good bye for a moment. Take very care of your family and children! Have a good day/ afternoon/evening/night! Namaskar.
