Every year on September 21, the world celebrates the International Day of Peace, often known as Peace Day. It was part of a unanimous UN resolution established Peace Day in 1981 to create a globally shared opportunity for all humanity to pledge to Peace above all differences and to contribute to the development of a happy society. Around 2001, the United Nations General Assembly decided to declare it a season of nonviolence. Ever since then, the nations on both sides of the border have made it a ritual to practise nonviolence and ceasefire practises 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
