Computer issues, laptop freezing, webcam not working or the network is incredibly slow, the first thing that comes to our mind when we come across such problems is a techie. You have an important presentation to give in an hour but your laptop isn’t responding, who do you think of calling immediately? Who do you think has the answers to all your technical issues – None other than a techie! Techies Day celebrates the wonderful techies that spend most of their time around technology which is inseparable from our daily lives now.

 

History

 

 

Techies Day was first established in 1988 by techie.com in association with the CNET networks with the purpose of helping high school students become educated about careers in technology. Now, the question arises, who exactly is a techie? A techie is an individual who is deeply interested in technology, an enthusiast and expert in the field of technology and knows the related issues revolving around it. Techies know their way around this technology-driven world and can help those who are perhaps less knowledgeable with technology. In this technology-driven world, with new innovations and technology, we need more and more information technology experts, i.e. Techies to move forward.

How to celebrate Techies Day?

Honouring and celebrating those people who keep the world moving forward for us is a start to celebrate Techies Day. Sending thankyou emails or greetings to the people who keep your printers running, your network flowing, oh yes, and the email you just sent able to get to its destination is another way to celebrate this day. If you are a techie, what better way could be celebrating this day than by gifting yourself a new gadget? Adding a new gadget to your collection would mean that you have been updating. Hence, celebrate this auspicious day by making sure that you’re still on the bleeding edge.

This year, the events for the National Poetry Day are set for October 3 that focuses on the theme of change. Poetry may be whimsical, sensitive or quiet and may be different for different sets of individuals.

History

National Poetry Day was launched by William Sieghart of the Forward Arts Foundation in 1994 to promote the benefits of poetry using public performances by leading poets. Talking about the history of poetry, in the 11th century, “Beowulf” one of the oldest surviving epic poems made literary history. It was written in old English, with almost 3,200 alliterative lines. The first-ever poem to be written was “Epic of Gilgamesh”, a series of Sumerian poems in 2100 BC. Ending 400 years of male dominance, ​Carol Ann Duffy became the first female and openly gay poet laureate in the U.K in 2009. This day – National Poetry Day honours and celebrates the legends and the legacies of poetry.
