India on Friday joined the rest of the world in commemorating May Day, which is observed as a public holiday in many countries. May Day is related to the Celtic festival of Beltane and the Germanic festival of Walpurgis Night. May Day falls exactly half a year from Nov 1, another cross-quarter day which is also associated with various northern European pagan and the year in the Northern hemisphere, and it has traditionally been an occasion for popular and often raucous celebrations. May Day is also known as International Workers' Day. It is a celebration of the international labour movement and left-wing movements.
Quote of the moment:
Give me a place to stand and I will move the earth.
