Do you know why Sunday is the only holiday?

After working all week, we all look forward to the Sunday. Because all offices, schools, colleges are closed on Sundays. But have you ever wondered why Sunday is celebrated as a public holiday in India? Because of which Sunday was declared as a holiday. Let's find out the reasons behind the announcement of Sunday as a holiday.

 

 

When the British used to rule in India, the mill workers had to work seven days, they did not receive any leave. Every Sunday, British officials used to go to church and pray, but there was no such tradition for mill workers. At that time, Shri Narayan Meghaji was the leader of Lokhande Mill workers, he proposed weekly holiday in front of the British and said that one day in the week after working 6 days should be met to serve his country and society. Along with this, he said that Sunday Hindu deity is the day of "Khandoba", therefore Sunday should also be declared as a weekly holiday. But this proposal was rejected by the British authorities. But Lokhande did not give up and continued his struggle. Ultimately, after the long struggle of 7 years, on 10 June 1890, the British Government finally declared holiday on Sunday. Surprisingly, the Indian government has never issued any order about it.
