A quick look at your calendar will show you how August is the month of long and long weekends. The first week of August has just whizzed past and coming weeks are the indication of a great time. Instead of spending your long weekends watching your favorite shows, choose a weekend getaway with your friends and family.
Keep your calendar closer and pick up a red marker as we tell you how to make the most of the upcoming long weekends. August 14, which is a Monday, is Janmashtami and it’s followed by Independence Day. There you go. This means your 4-day long weekend starts from this Saturday itself. Mark these dates and start planning your mini vacay right away. Freedom from work calls, freedom from your daily routine – this weekend is rightly called the Independence Day weekend.
Wait, there’s more…
August 17 is Parsi New Year. It’s a Thursday. Just take an off on Friday and bro, you have another long weekend. Simple, isn’t it? Besides, don’t you just like it how one weekend literally flows into another? It doesn’t stop here. Ganesh Chaturthi falls on August 25, a Friday. And it doesn’t take a genius to guess that there’s another long weekend waiting for you.
Now we only hope you’ve been putting that marker to good use all the while. Start packing your bags because now if Gabbar Singh of was around, he’d have surely said ‘Long weekend’s teen aur plan ek bhi nahin. Bahut naa insaafi hai.’ But that’s not what we’re going to do because we’re quite confident that you’re already on to something.
