Friendship Day wallpaper quotes messages pictures

The Friendship Day or International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011, during the 65th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations, with the idea that the friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals are able to stimulate initiatives peace and build bridges between communities.

Celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August. The party becomes more and more popular with the spread of the Internet, particularly in India, Bangladesh and Malaysia. This day is celebrated in several countries of South America.

The decision was taken by a resolution approved by more than 50 countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, resolution that places special emphasis on the importance of involving young people, who will be the leaders of tomorrow, in activities designed to embrace different cultures in order to promote mutual understanding and respect for diversity, recognizing the relevance and importance of friendship as a feeling noble and precious in the lives of human beings all over the world .

The day, however, dates much further and it seems to start from a marketing action launched by entrepreneur American Joyce Hall , founder of Hallmark Cards, which proposed to celebrate the day of friendship the August 2, by sending special cards. Within a decade the fashion launched by Hall lost force, however, was kept alive and even revitalized in Asia where several countries adopted the celebration of 2 August as Friendship Day.

The idea of an International Day of Friendship was subsequently proposed July 20, 1958 by Dr. Ramón Artemio Bracho during a dinner with friends in Puerto Penasco, Paraguay. From that meeting was born the World Friendship Crusade, a foundation that promotes friendship and brotherhood among all human beings, without distinction as to race, color or religion . Since then, July 30 has been faithfully celebrated as Friendship Day in Paraguay, before being adopted by several other countries. It was the World Friendship Crusade to lobby the United Nations for recognition of 30 July as International Day of Friendship result obtained only in 2011.

In 1997, however, is the proposal made ​​by UNESCO and adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations, which defines the culture of peace as a set of values, attitudes and behaviors that reject violence and endeavor to prevent conflicts by tackling the causes to the root, in order to solve the problems.

Proclaiming then, in 1998, the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence for the Children of the World (2001-2010), the General Assembly recognized that tremendous damage and suffering are caused to children through various forms of violence and pointed out that the promotion of a culture of peace and nonviolence should be instilled in children through the education.

The recognition of the International Day of Friendship and then sinks its roots in the recognition of the relevance and the importance of friendship as a feeling noble and precious in the lives of human beings all over the world. A celebration loudly requested by multiple parties and Today that finally became a reality stable. To celebrate then the fourth edition of the International Day of Friendship United Nations urged governments, international organizations and civil society to organize all events, activities and initiatives to cooperate with the international community to the promotion of dialogue between civilizations, the ideals of solidarity, mutual understanding and reconciliation.

Sms the friendship messages to those you love.

Friendship, one of the gifts of life, a way that you do not do it yourself. If there is rain, then a rainbow sopraggiungerà, that bridge of life is friendship.

When it comes to family, you always think to parents, brothers, sisters, husbands, children ... but I believe that the family is not only this. The family are also friends, the real ones, the ones who are always in the moment of Biso ...

The virtues of the people are measured by their humor.

Friendship is a unique feeling that makes life worth living. The friendship to live life with peace and joy. The friendship helps to climb the mountain of fear, sadness, hardship, loneliness. Thanks for your precious friendship!

Lying naked on the bed, well you know, I look at this moon shining element of union between souls far and I thank God for letting us meet.

I love you my sweet friend. my life is for you. to give you my absolute love and my eternal friendship.

The tender kiss I gave you and all that it represents is the seal of a unique friendship unique and sincere.

Sweet friend, I love you and I love you with a love clean and sincere. You're everything I was looking for and now you're part of me.

The friend: Comet driving, but does not oblige ... the water that quenches thirst, but does not drown ... a look that peers, but does not judge ... a heart that loves, but does not require.

Friends are those who give us wings to fly at times when we have forgotten how to fly.

Friendship is the comfortable place that will always welcome you with open arms, whether good or bad, because friendship with the time s'intaccherà not ever, but in fact this special and indescribable bond will be strengthened even more. Why am ...

Friendship is like a painting: the more years pass, the more it is appreciated.

True friends are able to recognize their wrongs when they are wrong, know how to forgive your mistakes because they love you. True friends do not go through difficult times and remain at your side, that's for me this is the real friendship.

In our life we ​​have friends who come through the door of sincerity and others that come out from the window of convenience, there are few who remain. The pain of those who leave is inevitable when you love someone sincerely.

Life becomes more beautiful when there are people beside you the honest truth, when there is someone who loves you and would do anything to tear a smile, you may call them "friends"! .

It can be lonely even when you are with a friend, so you know? You may feel useless even after you save one life, it happened to me my friend.

You feel alone when others fail to warm the soul, when you do not know how to touch a chord, when it comes to more or less, and then not have a real purpose except to fill the time that you spend together. It feels useless when you do not have a purpose, a son, a woman to kiss, a goal to reach.

It is just my friend, always, if your only companion on the road is poetry.

Find something to believe. Looking for something to hope for, that will be your reason to live.

Kalyan! Hello...

Such a wonderful post on friendship! It is true that good friends are precious and we should do anything to keep them.

Of course, many people ignore the meaning of friendship: real friends do not have to be together all the time, they do not hide their thoughts from each other (the truth can easily be told), they do not hold a grudge upon a quarrel (which is only natural) and they are like good brothers (with all the things that come along with it)...

Well done, my friend!

Egg Curry Recipe

Egg curry in India is known as Anda Curry that is a very simple recipe and is very popular with children. Perfect for lovers of hardboiled eggs, the spicy curry enhances the flavor. In this dish, the hard-boiled eggs are stir fried and then added to a sauce. It is served over steamed rice in India. Eggs can be added to any type of sauce you like. In this instructable I have shown how to make it with peas and tomato sauce.

This week I propose a curry eggs, a dish I wanted to replicate for some time after I had tasted the homemade version prepared by a friend. When I announced that dinner was planned with a curry of eggs it unexpectedly cause generalized reactions of astonishment. And so I realized that it has taken for granted that everyone to know that there are several varieties of curry, not only as regards the main ingredient, but also for the combination of spices and flavor to be obtained. So I decided to make a brief discussion on the curry to have some clarity on the subject.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:

Mysore Pak Recipe

The Mysore Pak is an Indian dessert originating in the state of Karnataka in southern India, but it is widely consumed throughout peninsular India and especially Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala. There are 2 ways to prepare it, soft or more solid, with generous amounts of melted butter or ghee, chickpea flour and sugar. Of course people prepare these delicacies especially for the feast of Diwali, the festival of lights.

The mysore pak was originally known as masoor pak, and was made with masoor dal flour. The exact origin of the recipe is unknown, although some claim that it was created in or near the Mysore Palace by a cook raised in the Kakasura Madappa. Its history dates back to, probably sometime in the 17th or 18th century Mysore, where during the reign of King Krishna Raja Wadiyar IV, the recipe was invented in the kitchens of the palace by the chef Kakasura Madappa. Having no idea for his creation, Madappa decided to call the recipe Mysore Pak, which means in Sanskrit and…
