International Women’s Day is celebrated world over on 8th March, every year. This day celebrates women’s achievements women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. It celebrates womanhood and pays tribute to the unwavering spirit of women across the globe. Celebrations on this day range from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration of women’s economic, political and social achievements.
Its roots lie in the early 1900s when oppression and inequality spurred women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for a change. The first National Women’s Day was observed on 28th February, 1909, across the Unites States, as an initiative of the Socialist Party of America. In 1910, the idea of an International Women’s Day was proposed, which was welcomed in a conference of over 100 women representing 17 countries, from unions, socialist parties, etc. as a strategy to promote equal rights.
The following year, on 19th March, 1911, International Women’s Day was observed for the first time by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany & Switzerland. In 1913, Russian women observed their first International Women’s Day on the last Sunday in February and in 1914, the International Women’s Day was moved to 8th March and this day has remained the global date for celebrating International Women’s Day ever since.
Since its inception in the socialist movement, International Women’s Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and developing nations alike. For decades, the International Women’s Day has grown in strength annually.
The United Nations has held an annual International Women’s Day conference to coordinate international efforts for women’s rights and participation in social, political and economic processes. They also designated 1975 as the International Women’s Year!
Many charities, NGOs and Governments also adopt a relevant theme or campaign to mark the day. The United Nations has been running exciting and powerful campaigns to raise awareness. They declare an annual equality theme every year. This year’s theme of the United Nations, “Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it!” envisions a world where every girl and woman can exercise her choice, such as participating in politics, getting an education, earning an income and living in societies free from violence and discrimination.
Women organisations and Governments around the world observe International Women’s Day annually on 8 March by holding large-scale events to honour women’s advancement and all the while carefully reminding of the continued vigilance and action required to ensure that women’s equality is gained and maintained in all aspects of life.

Pichkari ki Dhar,
Gulal ki bauchar,
Apno ka pyar,
Yahi hai yaaron holi ka tyohar.
Fulo Ne Khilna Chhod Diya
Taro Ne Chamkna Chhod Diya
Holi Me Baki Hai 2 Din
Fir Aapne Abhi Se Nahana Q Chhod Diya.
Rang udaye Pichkari rang se rang jaye duniya sari holi ke rang
aapke jeevan ko rang de ye shubha kaana hai hamari.
Rango Ke Tyohar Me Sabhi Rango Ki Ho Bharmar,
Dher Saari Khushiyo Se Bhara Ho Aapka Sansar,
Yahi Dua hai Bhagwan Se Hamari Har bar,
Bright colors, water balloons,
lavish gujiyas and melodious songs
are the ingredients of perfect Holi.
Wish you a very happy and Wonderful Holi
Sunhari Dhup Barsat ke Bad thodi Si Hashi
Har Bat ke Bad Usi Tarah Ho Mubarak
App Ko Ye Nayi Subah Kal rat Ke Bad

One of the major Hindu festivals, Holi, also known as the festival of colours is celebrated with great enthusiasm and cheerfulness. Holi is a spring festival, celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Phalgun, or March. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival, which has become popular among non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia as well as among people of other communities outside Asia.
The festival date varies every year and typically comes in March, sometimes February. This year Holi will be celebrated on 6th March, 2015 (Friday). The festival signifies the arrival of spring, end of winters, the victory of good over evil and a festive day for all to play, laugh and celebrate the day with colours, water-filled balloons and sweets.
Legend Associated with Holi
Mythology plays an important role in explaining the legend of Holi. The most popular story of Holi origin relates to ‘Holika-Dahan’. The tradition of Holika-Dahan is integral to the festival of Holi, which means lighting of bonfire. The ritual is symbolic of the victory of good over evil and has its roots in the legend of the demon king Hiranyakashyap and his son Prahlad.
Hiranyakashyap wanted everybody in his kingdom to worship only him, but his son Prahlad became an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashyap had a sister, Holika, who had a boon that she could enter fire without being unharmed. To punish Prahlad, Hiranyakashyap ordered his sister Holika, to enter a fire with Prahlad in her lap. Both of them entered the fire with Prahlad chanting the name of Lord Vishnu. Holika didn’t survive the fire and no harm befell on Prahlad. The festival therefore, also marks the triumph of devotion. Since then, people light a bonfire on the eve of Holi.
Traditional Celebrations on Holi
- Holi celebrations start on the evening before Holi, with the Holika bonfire where people gather, sing and dance.
- The next morning is a carnival of colours for all, where people play, chase and colour each other with gulal and coloured water, carrying water pichkaris and coloured water-filled balloons.
- People wear white clothes to enjoy the colourful celebrations. The frolic and fun with water and colours occurs in open streets, parks, on terraces, outside homes and buildings. A famous adage used by everybody is “Buran a mano, Holi hai!” because everyone and anyone, a friend or a stranger, man or woman, children or elders, can be pulled into the playful festivities on this day.
- After all the play and merriment, people share Holi delicacies and sweets like Gujiyas, Mathri & Papri, etc.

“Freedom in our Mind, Faith in our Words, Pride in our Heart and Memories in our Souls.
Let’s Salute the Nation on Republic Day.”
India became a free nation on August 15, 1947, although it declared itself as a Sovereign, Democratic and Republic State with the adoption of the Constitution on 26th January, 1950. 66 years back, a salute of 21 guns and the unfurling of the Indian National Flag by Dr. Rajendra Prasad (the First President of India) announced the historic birth of the Indian Republic, 894 days after our country became independent, following the withdrawal of the British Rule. Since then, every year, this day is celebrated with great pride and happiness all across the nation.
The transition of India from a British colony to a sovereign, secular and a democratic nation was a very long journey, which lasted for about 2 decades (20 years). It started with the conceptualization of the dream in 1930, when the Declaration of Independence was officially announced on 26th January, 1930. The Congress regularly observed 26th January as the Independence Day of India since then, until 15th August became the official Independence Day. The actual realization of the dream of a republic nation took place 20 years later, in 1950, when the Constitution of India, as drafted and approved by the Constituent Assembly of India, was directed to take effect on 26th January 1950, to commemorate the declaration made in 1930.
On Republic Day, flag hoisting ceremonies and parades by school children are held in different parts of the country. The grandest and most significant of these parades is held at Rajpath in New Delhi, which showcases a multi-hued image of the country’s rich cultural & traditional heritage and their military prowess. The parade is presided over by the President of India. The Prime Minister of India lays a wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti at India Gate to pay tribute to the martyrs who have sacrificed their lives for the country. After that there is the 21 gun salute, unfurling of the National Flag and singing of the National Anthem. Next, the Paramvir Chakra, Ashok Chakra and Vir Chakra are presented to military persons, citizens and children for showing courage in the face of adversities.
The Republic Day Parade is concluded with a fly-past by the Indian Air Force Fighter jets over Rajpath, as viewers look on with their hearts filled with pride. The Republic Day celebrations of India have rightly become world famous as one of the greatest displays drawing thousands of eager spectators from all over the country and different parts of the world as well.
