What the day means to me
Youngsters in the city tell us what Friendship Day means to them and how they like to celebrate it

The day reminds me of my childhood days when we used to get a bunch of friendship bands. My day is marked with an all-day out with my friends
Teena Jha, 23

Although I believe each day is to enjoy with my friends, this day gives youngsters just another reason to have a nice time with their buddies
Kartik Abrol, 18

I don’t really agree with the concept. An ideal Friendship Day for me is when I succeed in doing something great for my friends. The date doesn’t matter
Rinki Singhvi, 24

Friendship Day would mean a day where I can express to my friends what they mean to me! It’s a day to be together to celebrate the bond of friendship
Upasana Virmani, 24
