Holidays bring joy to anybody irrespective of their age. They hold a special place in the hearts of students for whom holidays means carrying out their extracurricular activities such as drawing, painting, reading, cycling, swimming etc. They also make the most of their holidays by watching their favourite movies and visiting hill stations.
Another meaningful way of spending the holidays is to participate in family get together, attending family functions and visiting relatives in who live in another city or country.
What is the purpose of holidays?
It is very important for one to know the purpose behind holidays. They are not there just to celebrate or party; they are significant from the point of view of one's physical and mental health. Yes. One cannot go on studying or working for a long time. One has to take a break to relax one's body and mind so that both are fully charged to take up the next task.
Thus, holidays are special for the students because their heavy syllabuses, reading and writing at school and home, attending special classes and tuition/coaching classes, writing internal tests and preparing for final exams put tremendous amount of pressure on them both physically and mentally. That is when holidays prove useful. They can relax, regain strength and start the next academic session with a sound mind.
It is important for the students to know what are the days they can enjoy their holidays or plan to do something different from their routine life of studies and exams.
Taking all the above factors into consideration, we bring you the list of holidays in Karnataka for the year 2017.
