How lazy we are : an study of public holidays

I have collected some data that how many public holidays do other countries award to their citizens besides Nepal. When we analyze these holidays record, what we find in the context of Nepalis that: the Government of Nepal offers maximum number of public holidays. It’s the maximum number of public holidays offered in the whole world. And also Nepalis one of the poorest country in the whole world. We are dishonored by a Driver or Cooley of our neighbor country.   My aim is not to hurt anyone but are these holidays are really required for us? The total numbers of holidays are thirty six and among which twenty five holidays are the religious holidays of mostly Hindus and Buddhists. In India where the majority of people are Hindus (more than 70 crores), there are only thirteen religious holidays. Also,India constitutes many hundreds of ethnic groups and many sub groups of Hindus. InNepal where the population of majority Hindus are 1.5 crores, are offered maximum holidays. I can only conclude that its just the laziness of people and government that they do not want to work and rather enjoy holidays. And the result is that we are always counted in the poorest one and the beggars.

These holidays are offered by Central Government for all its citizens. For many countries, there are some holidays offered from State Government too for the specified people.
