News About Bihar Holidays in 2019

  • Bihar CM Rejects Demand for Declaration of Guru Purnima as State Holiday

    Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Wednesday rejected the demand to declare Guru Purnima as a state holiday, saying it’s not an occasion to enjoy leave but to work as an abeyance to the gurus. The CM said that gurus preach us to work more for the society and people should motivate other to do better for the society and offering prayers are personal matters. Through a call attention motion, he had said as per Indian culture, Guru Purnima was one of the most auspicious festivals. This year, Guru Purnima falls on 16 July and is celebrated on the full moon day in the Hindu month of Ashadha to revere their chosen spiritual leaders or teachers and express their gratitude. The festival is celebrated from the ancient ages in the Indian sub-continent.
