Week 110-January 17 to January 22

Theme: Who doesn't look forward to a holiday? No matter what your occupation is, holidays bring the much needed rest and opportunities to look beyond work and plan something fun. So let's talk about our holiday calendar and how we can make the most of them.

Day 1-The First Month: Apart from Republic Day, there are a few other holidays in January that we all look forward to. Write an essay on the significance of these days and what you plan to do.

Day 2-Planning Out: Prepare your own holiday calendar for India. Keep in mind the major festivals of the various States as well as national holidays. Do you think certain festivals/days deserve a mention but are ignored? Mention those and your reasons behind them.

Day 3-Celebrations and Involvements: What are the activities your school/college plans for the national holidays like Republic Day and Independence Day? Do you participate in any of them or just enjoy the performance? Talk about the various programmes planned, your roles and observations.

Day 4-Those Times: What did holidays mean to your parents and grandparents when they were students? What did they usually occupy themselves with and what kind of celebrations did they observe on national holidays? Talk to them and give us their perspective.

Day 5-Out of the Blue: Apart from calendar holidays, we often get unexpected days off on account of bad weather, disturbances and other sudden occurrences. Talk about one of such experiences in your life when an unexpected holiday came your way and how you spent your time.

Day 6-Debate: National holidays and celebrations have lost their significance. People simply look forward to their days off instead of remembering and honouring the events associated with such days.
