The National All is Ours Day is celebrated each year on 8 April, and among all the informal national days, this one is rather unique - for the simple fact that it is perhaps among the very few days which give us an opportunity to reflect on all the wonderful things surrounding us and realise that "all is indeed ours".

It is a day to think about the entire world and appreciate what we have, rather than what we do not. It is a day for us to rejoice at the fact that the whole world is filled with beautiful things that belong to each and every one of us.
Concept of the day:
One may not be able to trace the origin of the concept of the National All is Ours Day but there are two aspects to this glorious observance.
The first aspect is to know and appreciate all the wonderful things in the world. It is a day that propagates the need for humans to be more aware of our surroundings and understand, appreciate and accept what exists in them.
The other aspect urges human beings to introspect on the fact that a lot of things belong to a shared collective human civilization, and hence it is of paramount importance that we inculcate the humane nature of sharing and caring. This is where the world "all" comes into the picture.
