Jai Bolo Sardar ki Jai Bolo. He is a 'true' patriot serving his videshi
master with utmost gratitude. Bharat needs more of these 'patriots' so a
modern day Mahabharat can be started soon. A full scale dharma yudh is the
only option to save Bharat. Lord Krishna,where are you?

The UPA government has removed Holi and Janmasthami from the list of
gazetted government holidays. They are now only on the list of Restricted
Holidays., along with 32 other festivals and sacred days.

The government's move is being seen as yet another please-minorities policy.
Holi, Dusshera and Diwali are among the most important Hindu festivals. Over
the years, Holis has come to represent a social rather than religious
occasion, with non-Hindus also joining in the celebrations. By taking these
two festivals from the gazetted list, the government has made a statement.
Now both strictly Hindu festivals and Muslim festivals are even in number.

According to the present list, there are three holidays for Muslim festivals
(id-ul-Juha, Muharram and Milad-un-nabi), three for Hindus (Diwali, Dussehra
and Ram Navami), three national festivals (Independence Day, Republic Day
and Gandhi Jayanti), two of the Christians (Good Friday and Christmas),
Buddha Purnima, Guru Nanak Jayanti, and Mahavir Jayanti.

This Year, Holi falls on a Sunday and therefore, the people may not feel the
pinch of losing a holiday
