Friendship Day 2017: A Flashback of Things That Defined The Day For 90s Kids

Here's everything that all 90s kids miss about the once-big day and will relate to.


Updated:August 6, 2017, 10:50 AM IST

We are all travellers and it’s our ships that help us sail through the storms and struggles the oceans bring forth. The stronger the ship, the greater the distance we travel. And indeed, one of the best ships that’ll help you sail through your life’s ups and downs is Friend-Ship!

Friendship day is here and everyone has begun to plan outings to meet their buddies and have some fun. However, the day, over the years, has lost its importance and has turned into a marketing gimmick as opposed to the sentimental affair it used to be in the 90s.

With the onset of post globalisation, one of the best celebrations to come to India was Friendship Day. Every dimension - from Bollywood to consumer markets - exploited this new found territory to its fullest. Even though the exploitation continues, the emotional value has now shifted more towards social media platforms. So unlike making meeting friends in person a priority, it's the Instagram posts that greet you early in the morning.

While you browse through the 'shows, sweet and the kind of friends' you've in your life, here's another one to take you back to the good old days when Friendship Day actually meant something.

Here's everything that all 90s kids miss about the once-big day and will relate to.

When a colourful band was a testimony of your bond..

And of course, different bonds meant different bands..


When the custom of handmade cards felt normal..

When hanging out wasn't synonymous to cafe hopping, but only local eateries..

When a subtle proposal was wrapped in a chocolate disguised as a token of 'friendship'..

When cheesy friendships were spotted not as Instagram posts but yellow roses..

When Yaaron Dosti Hai was played on loop as the anthem of the day..

When this was our love motto..


And also when it wasn't just a Sunday but a celebratory day to look forward too..
