World Book and Copyright Day 2022

Every year April 23rd is a celebration of Books and the copyright of creators.

What is world book and copyright day?
This is a symbolic day for world literature, this is a day when several prominent authors took their last breath, William Shakespeare, Miguel Cervantes, and Inca Garcilaso De La Ve Ga died on the day. Upon a conference of UNESCO on 1995 AD held in France, April 23rd was declared as a global day of Book and Copyright. This day advocates for creativity, diversity, and equal access to knowledge. The copy and photocopy culture is creating a huge tragedy on the author's side. Authors depict their society from their creation in their paper through their ink, from Valmiki to Veda Vyas, from Shakespeare to Wordsworth, from Gorky to Chekov everyone translated their ideas, society, and incidents in their papers, in their books which shall last for centuries and centuries to come.

Words and feelings are not for sale, these are public assets and a source of knowledge for generations to come. Let's increase our reading habits, Books are now transformed into e-books, audiobooks, and several digital forms but the importance of reading, assimilating, and contemplating contents into human minds is the same.

How is world book and copyright day observed?

Each year, on 23 April, celebrations take place all over the world to recognize the scope of books - a link between the past and the future, a bridge between generations and across cultures. On this occasion, UNESCO and the international organizations representing the three major sectors of the book industry - publishers, booksellers and libraries, select the World Book Capital for a year to maintain, through its own initiatives, the impetus of the Day’s celebrations.
What is Copyright?

It is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving authors or creators of original work exclusive rights usually for a limited time. Basically, it is the right to copy. It also gives the copyright holder the right to be credited for the work and other, related rights. So, it is an intellectual property form.

Enjoy World Book and copyright Day 2022!

You are a Reader is the theme of this year, this year marks the 25th anniversary of the celebration.
A gold wreath for the listener, a flower garland for the reader

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
