Friendship Day Celebration by CETians.

By: Team PenTastic

"Each friend represents a world in us, world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."

In India, Friendship Day is observed on the first Sunday in the month of August. The popular customs of  this day includes handing over roses, especially the pink and yellow ones, tying friendship bands, etc. The day is observed with great exhilaration and merriment , with friends throwing parties and  gorging on lip-smacking dishes.

Though We are late in updating about one of the very special days of this phase of our life, Cet Rising brings to light , a few simple  but lovely celebrations that took place during  the Friendship Day!

" Friendship is an integral part of our Life. Without friends , life is incomplete. If we have friends, we would never be alone and good friends are very important for us. 
This Friendship Day, a few of us went to Shikharchandi and had a mini get-together. Although there is a lot of pressure of studies, placements, projects but this was refreshing" , said Abhishek Khemka of 4th year, I.T.

Sonika Panigrahi of I.T , 3rd year said that they had a small coffee party in the canteen, where they recollected old memories and pulled each others' leg!

Deciding a uniform dress-code, some of Biotech students of 3rd year celebrated the day in a different way.

Many more Cetians celebrated the day in various ways, a few meeting their old buddies and others enjoying at hostel while many sending texts to their closest pals!
Friendship Day celebrations have come a long way, but the basic idea behind the occassion remains the same. This is the day when we acknowledge our friends' contribution in our life, express love for them, cherish thier presence in our life and pay them a tribute.
