August is the eighth month of the year and has a length of 31 days. This month comes after July and before September. This month is a very important month for the people of India because this month India was liberated from many years of slavery. India was liberated from the British rule on August 15, 1947, and since then it is celebrated on 15th August as Independence Day.
The month of August is starting from Thursday, with the holidays of four Sundays. Do you know when the tradition of holidays on Sunday began? When India was a slave of the British rule, then the mill workers in India had to work hard for seven days. Mill workers did not have any breaks to relax. While British officers and workers went to church every Sunday and used to pray. At that time, the leader of the mill workers Narayan Meghaji Lokhande had offered a weekly holiday proposal to the British, but the British rule rejected the offer. Narayan Meghaji Lokhande did not accept defeat and he continued the struggle. After the 7 years long struggle, on 10 June 1890, the British government declared Sunday as a holiday. Since then, Sunday was celebrated in India as a public holiday.
