2007: Another big Holiday

If newspaper articles are to be believed, 2007 will be nothing sort of a big holiday year ( the pun is meant for babus). Lets first have the statistics:


2007 will have:

(i) 52 weeks out of which 2 days are holidays so that 52 X 2 = 104 days

(ii) 14 gazetted holidays ( excluding holidays on Saturdays & Sunday's) = 14 days

(iii) 2 restricted holidays = 02 days

(iv) 8 casual leaves (which is normally taken by most) = 08 days

Total 128 days

Compare this figure with the year gone by i.e, 2006 :

(i) 52 weeks out of which 2 days are holidays so that 52 X 2 = 104 days

(ii) 14 gazetted holidays ( excluding holidays on Saturdays & Sunday's) = 14 days

(iii) 2 restricted holidays = 02 days

(iv) 8 casual leaves (which is normally taken by most) = 08 days

Total 128 days


Strange as it may seem, 2007 will have as much holidays as there were in 2006. Then why this hullo-ballo. I don't know. What I do know is that this is a news-worthy item for any decent newspaper.

I was on leave ( i have a day job) for about 10 days in December last, so that I could relax, get back on life and spend some quality time with my family. 5 days into my leave, it felt boring, my wife thought I was showing my bossism on her because there was nothing much to do other than reading, eating and sleeping, I was a vegetable ( vegetables are cheap in winter). Even, my posting frequency on the blog had suffered.

The moot point here is, those people take leave often, who are born lazy or have a career outside their present jobs or have a strong passion which deserve their attention, not the least would be, if you have a kid (youngling). Holidays or no holidays, if its raining money, everyone loves to work 24 X 7 otherwise life's a bit ordinary, and a holiday once in a while is a welcome change.
