I am in Himachal Pradesh, India (McLeod Ganj). The calendar shows many holidays for the month of October. I want to know which of these days prohibit the sale and/or consumption of alcohol. Here's one calendar's list: 2 Oct, Ghandi's birthday; 11 Oct, Maha Saptami; 12 Oct, Maha Ashtami; 13 Oct, Dussehra (Maha Navami); 16 Oct,, Bakri Id/Eid ul-Adha; 18 Oct, Maharishi Valmiki Jayanti; and 22 Oct, Karaka Chaturthi. I am American, hence was surprised to learn that today, the 3rd, was an election day and dry. It wasn't listed on the calender. Also, someone told me that public holidays are not dry, but which is which? Thanks.

In addition to the above the following days are also dry days:


Muharram
The day of poll and proceeding two days in all General elections, By-Elections to Lok Sabha, Municipal Board and Panchayat.
Any other day the Government may by notification declare to be a dry day.
