Girls celebrating Friendship Day at Prakasam Barrage in Vijayawada on Sunday.  

Age is no bar when it comes to celebrating Friendship Day, as it was seen here when alumni of various schools and colleges, who planned to celebrate Friendship Day on a grand scale, booked rooms in many hotels in advance. Friendship Day parties and celebrations were seen in many hotels and function halls.

There was a great demand for friendship bands in fancy shops. Many people were seen buying bands for their loved ones.

They took photographs and posted to their friends who were staying in different places.

“There is no person without a friend. We studied in St. Mary’s Convent at Kothagudem in Telangana State in the 1970s, and settled at different places. We recalled our school days today,” said an elderly woman Baby Rani.

“We did our graduation from V.R. College, Nellore. Some of us are settled in business, a few got retired from government services, while some are staying with their children in Bangalore, Hyderabad and abroad. But, on this day, we make it a point to get in touch with each other and revisit our memories,” says Ankamma Rao.
