CHANDIGARH: In another attempt to rewrite the history, BJP government in Haryana has taken a decision not to celebrate May 1 as ‘Labour Day’ being observed by around 80 countries since 1886. Rather the state has decided to celebrate Vishwakarma Day as ‘Shramik Divas.’
Haryana minister of state for labour and employment Nayab Singh Saini said on Thursday, “Vishwakarma is the divine draughtsman of the whole universe. Since he is our ancestor we should celebrate labour day on his name.”
About the decision not to celebrate Labour Day on May 1, he reasoned, “We should understand the background of May 1 as to how the decision was taken to observe Labour Day on May 1.” He made it clear that the state government is not going to do any function or activity on May 1.
It was on May 1, 1886, that many labour unions started protests in Chicago and other cities of US demanding eight-hour workday. Protests continued and on May 4, 1886, at Haymarket Square in Chicago, police opened fire on protestors killing many and wounding hundreds of them. Later a decision was taken to observe May 1 as Labour Day in commemoration of the Haymarket tragedy.

This is perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals. it is celebrated throughout India, as well as in Indian communities throughout the diaspora. It usually takes place eighteen days after Dusshera. It is colloquially known as the “festival of lights”, for the common practice is to light small oil lamps and place them around the home, in courtyards, verandahs, and gardens, as well as on roof-tops and outer walls. In urban areas, especially, candles are substituted for diyas; and among the nouveau riche, neon lights are made to substitute for candles. The celebration of the festival is invariably accompanied by the exchange of sweets and the explosion of fireworks. As with other Indian festivals, Diwali signifies many different things to people across the country. In north India, Diwali celebrates Rama’s homecoming, that is his return to Ayodhya after the defeat of Ravana and his coronation as king; in Gujarat, the festival honors Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth; and in Bengal, it is associated with the goddess Kali. Everywhere, it signifies the renewal of life, and accordingly it is common to wear new clothes on the day of the festival; similarly, it heralds the approach of winter and the beginning of the sowing season.
