Probably you can go through Wikipedia or Google to find out the roots of how Friendship Day originated and how it was decided to be celebrated on the first Sunday of every August. However, over the last few years such special days depicting the celebrations of some form of relationship between people have gained huge recognition. If not for the existence of the calendar, such days would have seemed completely meaningless but thanks to our ancestors that we have a calendar completing 365 days every year but the 4th time. Once again wishing you all a very Happy Friendship Day!!!!!!!!!
Friendship is that kind of special relationship that doesn't demand any kind of blood relation. It doesn't command a public commitment like that of a marriage. It has even happened on so many occasions that friendship has been the only reason for survival when both the prior relations have failed to help and support. Blood relations and marriage relations generally have an assumed kind of a trust but in friendship the trust has to be earned. An earned pie always teaches more than a passed on pie. Likewise the earned trust teaches us a lot about life and supports us in the most difficult situations than an assumed trust. The best part about earning trust in friendship is that all our friends were strangers to us once upon a time. We earned the trust of strangers and vice versa and that's the reason we have friends today, some of who become an integral part of our lives.
At the end of the day, every relationship is based upon trust be it assumed or earned. If we can see a friend in everyone who surrounds us and forget that we knew the person before and start working to earn the trust of the other person then every relation of ours will be as powerful as that of friendship. Man was born as a social animal and he has to engage with everyone in his society. Hence, it's essential for each one of us to see a friend in everyone around us and work for the good of each other. Only when we support each other can our society be a wonderful place to thrive in.
