Educational institutes across J&K to remain closed on these 2 days

In a unique convergence of holidays and celebrations, educational institutions across the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir have announced closures on October 24, and 26. These closures are aligned with significant cultural and historical events and are set to bring both festivities and reflection.

October 24: Dussehra (Tuesday) October 24, celebrated as Dussehra, is a momentous day that symbolizes the victory of Lord Rama over the demon king Ravana, signifying the victory of virtue over vice. As this day falls on a Tuesday this year, educational institutions will remain closed, granting students and educators the opportunity to observe the festivities, which include the effigy-burning of Ravana, cultural programs, and parades. This closure will allow for the unimpeded participation of the educational community in the cultural and religious significance of Dussehra.

October 26: Accession Day Holiday (Thursday) October 26 holds a special place in the history of Jammu and Kashmir as it commemorates Accession Day, which marks the formal accession of the region to India in 1947. Educational institutions across the Union Territory will remain closed on this day to remember and reflect upon the historical significance of this event. Accession Day is a time to acknowledge the diverse cultural heritage of Jammu and Kashmir and to pay tribute to the region’s historical journey.
