    Why 26th is a holiday?????
    No need, we should work hard for the countries future also in weekend - government should declare Saturday as a full working day.........

    Yes.. very true. Saturday is a Jewish holiday ... why do we need it??? doesn't make sense.

    Jagath Friday, 23 December 2011 08:53 AM

    26th should be marked as a memorial day for those killed in the 2004 tsunami, how will those in effected areas feel working on a day which changed their lives 7 years ago?
