friendship caught on with the people and soon Friendship Day
became a hugely popular festival.

In the famous Hindu epic 'Mahabharata', Lord Krishna demon-
strates the many colors of friendship - affection, romance,
brotherhood, protection, guidance, intimacy and even teasing.
Friendship is all about these and much more.
