Gandhi Jayanti is a very respected festival in India, and in each and every state it is celebrated in schools and colleges. Students also get holiday on this day of Gandhi Jayanti, but you will be very surprised to know that after years of observing Gandhi Jayanti as a national holiday the Rajasthan Higher Education Department has finally decided not to allow 2nd October gandhi Jayanti holiday in state schools, colleges and Universities from this year.

The senior official of the department of rajasthan higher educational community have replied to us by saying that we want give students to celebrate the occasion and festival but we cannot allowed holiday in the name of birthday of mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
In the last he also said that all the important list of holidays were sent to all institutes and Universities which they have to follow as soon as receiving these list.
In the month of October all the Institutions will observe holiday on Muharram and Diwali but will not get any holiday on 2nd October Gandhi Jayanti.
I would really love to hear your opinion on this, because we all have to take this decision together whether we should celebrate this festival or not. We cannot completely allow to Ban 2nd October holiday in Rajasthan or any other state because this will project a bad impact on our children. Gandhiji is a very important person for our country because he had sacrificed his life for the freedom of our country. You should never forget his sacrifice and should always appreciate his works. Very similar way we also have to teach our children about our freedom fighters and great Nationalist who have sacrificed everything for our country. If we start putting ban on the birthdays of various freedom fighter, our children will never know about them or we take interest in their freedom stories.
