You will remember studying in school that June 21 is the Longest Day of the Year. But why is it so? June 21 is the 172nd day of the year – the 173rd in the Leap Year – in the Gregorian calendar. So on this day, there are 193 days remaining until the end of the year on December 31.

On non-Leap Years until 2039, June 21 will mark the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, where it will be the Longest Day of the Year. In the Southern Hemisphere, it will be the Shortest Day of the Year due to the Winter Solstice.

So, what tasks are you planning to complete on the Longest Day of the Year in India? Watch this archive video of IBNLive, and decide!
