2nd October - A Dry Day!

2nd October. a great day of Indian history and i hope everybody is aware of it.
Ok let me explain for those who don't know what had happenned on this date?
So my friend at this day we got a man with a great personality named Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi and in short we call him Mahatma Gandhi or Baapu. Another famous personality and a great prime minister of India also had born the same day 2nd October named Lal Bahadur Shastri.
But unfortunately these days we are celebrating this day as a national holiday and it is also known as the Dry Day(no alcohal day).
It is good that we take a holiday on this date. But when the holiday was declared, the purpose of holiday was also mentioned.
We know that how many peoples are there who remembered Gandhiji and Lal Bahadur Shashtriji on this day.
i have just read a local newspaper which published a survey, based on some reputed schools of the city and also some politicians.
Reporters from the local newspaper just want to know the answer that who know the meaning and purpose of 2nd October and want to know more about Gandhi ji and Shastri ji.
Students answered that Gandhi ji was born on 2nd October. Few of them also mentioned Gandhi ji's full name, They also knew that Gandhi ji was a leader who fought against Britishers who ruled over India. Besides the bookish and common knowledge about Gandhi ji they don't know anything else. This actually get me killed and made me sad.
And our politicians - ohhhhh really great. They don't knew what is the full name of Gandhi ji ? What he does for our country.
some politicians tried to avoid the reporters. I am feeling ashamed of these modern netas of India.
I have also noticed on this day where some people trying to get some drops of alcohol near liquor shops. As we know that due to 2nd October all the shops were closed, they were finding it difficult to get alcohol.
We can easily assume what they thought about Gandhi ji on that time. I just wanted to ask everyone through this article.-
What is the exact meaning of 2nd October and what is the real purpose of this holiday...

Please comment if you have the answer. Will help others as well as me.........
