Schools specially non-convent schools dont treat all festivals as equal. One one hand atleast 5 days vacations are declared during Diwali but for Christmas they give only one day leave. Nowadays this trend also is changing with declaring 25th Dec as working day. In many schools the second unit test is also scheduled during the christmas season. If the government is allowing this since Christians being a minority community, are we giving equal rights to all students to freely celebrate their religious festivals? Isnt our academic sessions getting inclined towards accomodating all Hindu festivals? Point is non-convent schools are deliberately scheduling exams during christmas season and giving winter vacations from 31st Dec onwards. This way they are hurting the religious sentiments of a particular community. If we call ourselves secular and our constitution gives everybody the freedom with regards to the religion, then why are the schools restricting the students to celebrate christmas by scheduling exams during christmas season. The schools are going against the constitution and it should be stopped before its too late. Hope we can treat all festivals as equal and give the children the right and freedom to celebrate their religious festivals, like they get to do during Diwali.
