Mharashtra-Day-21st May is celebrated as the Maharashtra day. On this day Labors day is also celebrated. We bring to some of the glimpse of celebration on this day.1st May is of great significance to the state of Maharashtra as it is this day that the state of Maharashtra attained statehood. In independent India, Mumbai, the bilingual state, continued as one state consisting of Maharashtra and Gujarat. But this equation of two linguistic units in one state did not work and therefore on 1st May 1960, under the Bombay re-organization Act, Maharashtra and Gujarat were divided into separate states. Since then 1st May is celebrated at Maharashtra Day. In Mumbai, the Maharashtra Day celebrations are held all across the city. May 1st also marks International Labor Day round the globe. Labours force forms a very core part of every city and civilization and hence has to be given the due substance and significance. World Labor Day is an acknowledgement of this fact. The day is a reminder of the sorry state of workers throughout the country. A large mass of labors, in fact do not even know that there is a day dedicated to their role in society.
