List of National and International Days

National and International Days

List of National and International Days is one of the hottest topics in the World. Out of 365 days in a year, we have some special days like Birthdays, Wedding Anniversaries, Raksha Bandhan..etc. Similarly for a particular cause, the Government of India, United Nations, World Health Organization..etc observe some Special Days every month. The main purpose of observing such days is to create awareness among the people for a particular cause.

Why List of National and International Days are important for Competitive Exams?

When it comes to Competitive Exams, National and International Days play a major role under General Knowledge. We can expect a minimum of two or three questions from this topic. Nowadays most of the exams focus more on the Themes of International Days.
