Are uhappy today? It’s International Day Of Happiness. Not only today try to be happy everyday. But let’s understand the significance of this day.
Have you ever heard the story of a king who ordered a hunt for the shirt of the happiest man in his kingdom? When his servants finally found the happiest man, he had no shirt! Beyond all his cares and longings, Man ultimately wants to be happy. In acknowledge of this great truth, March 20 is recognised as the International Day of Happiness.
What is the purpose of this day?
Of course, it is a day to be happy! However,it is also an occasion to recognise the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world. There are millions of people in the world devoid of happiness due to several factors. A UN resolution in 2015 has sought to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet,the three key points that lead to the well – being and happiness of people.
Being happy is everyman’s right. Controlling the factors that lead to the loss of happiness of people all over is not only the responsibility of governments but also of every individual.
Cancer is a disease that effects the young and old, the rich and poor alike. It is also a disease that strikes fear into the hearts of people, because they think that it is not curable.
Actually, this is not so. If Cancer is detected in the early stages, it can be treated very successfully. To make people realise the importance of early treatment, and to raise awareness about the disease, World Cancer Day is celebrated on February 4th every year.
World Cancer Day was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control to reduce death and illness caused by cancer. World Cancer day also pays tribute to those who have conquered cancer, and are getting on with their lives.
To deny people their human right is to challenge their very humanity.
Millions of people are living all over the world devoid of basic amenities, dignity and human rights. Human Rights are the rights that every individual has by virtue of being a human being, irrespective of their gender, caste,creed , religion, nation, location or economic status. On December 10, the world observes the Human Rights Day.
December 10 is the anniversary of the Universe Declaration of Human Rights, a historic document, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly at its third session on 10 December 1948 in Paris, France. It is milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights, which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being, regardless of race, colour, religion,sex, language, political or other opinion, National or social origin, property , birth or other status. This document is available in more than 500 languages.
The Human Rights Day reminds us of the significance of equil dignity and worth of every person. We as responsible individuals, have to make a promise to ourselves to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human being.

This year’s Human Rights Day theme relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring Human Rights are central to recovery efforts.

We all agree that we cannot live without food- but did you realise that there can be no life on Earth without soil? Soil provides support and nutrition to plants, including those that provide us with food, and soil that is rich in nutrients leads to healthy plants.
However, despite the essential role that soil plays on this planet, it is often neglected and degraded. The United Nations has recognised the importance of soil, and declared December 5 to be World Soil Day.
This day is celebrated to highlight the fact that careful management of soil, backed up by research and development, is the foundation of agricultural production, and essential for the wellbeing not just of human beings, but of the planet itself.
