The International Men’s Day is annually celebrated on the 19th of November 2022 as an appreciation for all the social, cultural, and economical contribution done by men to uplift the society. The effort of every man towards the betterment of our lives, families, society, and nation is recognized and honoured on this day. The day promotes awareness based on six pillars which are highlighting discrimination against men; supporting male health issues; improving gender relations; promoting gender equality; celebrating male contributions to society; and promoting male role models.
As of 2021, 3.97 billion men, or 50.42% of the world’s population, is estimated to be males.

A father, brother, son, husband, well-wisher, employer, entrepreneur and so on goes the list, but these roles are not brought into spotlight or discussed much. Every man should be given the honor for the untiring commitment provided to support his family and provide a healthy life for his loved ones, the contribution invested towards developing the community, the inspiration for a brighter tomorrow and many more spoken and unspoken novel endeavors.
