So this month, already special because of my birthday falling on the second, is awesome because we get three extra days off due to public holidays falling on weekdays. August 15th is Independence Day! No not that one with Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum fighting off bad aliens using a computer virus. But the Indian Independence Day – when we got our freedom from the British imperialists.
That falls in the middle of next week, a Wednesday. I wish it were on a Monday or Friday which will mean 3 day weekend. But then…the next week we have two days off! Bakrid is on Wednesday, 22nd Aug and Onam is on 24th which is a Friday. So I will get a long weekend but if only I could get Thursday off or a leave as well.
Damn it! I am greedy but I don’t care.
