Goa 30 July 2016: “When greed supersedes concerns about the health of our planet or its inhabitants, when fanatic attachment to ideology is pursued at all costs, and when people suffer human rights violations because they are considered somehow less than equal, the heritage of humanity is betrayed and our future well being is placed in peril, On this International Day of Friendship, let us resolve to cherish and cultivate as many warm relationships as possible, enriching our own lives and enhancing the future.” Sandeep Marwah Ambassador of International Human Rights Organization affiliated to United Nations read the message of UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon in a small event at Hotel Taj Vivanta Holiday Village, Goa.

The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly with the idea of friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.

The Day is also intended to support the goals and objectives of the Declaration and Programs of Action on a Culture of Peace and the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World
