Martyrdom of Guru Tegh Badhadur Sahib
A work-restricted day that marks the 9th Guru of the Sikhs, who was killed by Mughal rulers in 1675 for defending Hindus facing forcible conversion to Islam.
Reflection: "Give up your head, but foresake not those whom you have undertaken to protect," says Tegh Bahadur, "Sacrifice your life, but relinquish not your faith."
