Backtracking from today - 25th Nov, 2018 is a Sunday - we can jump to 25th Nov, 2000.

As each year progresses, days shift by one to right and 2 for a leap year.

So, calculating total days between 25th Nov, 2000 till today - 365*14 (for non-leap years) + 366*4 (for leap years)

As 365*14 is divisible by 7, the day will stay same as remainder is 0. For 366*4, number of days shifted is 4*2 = 8 which divided by 7 gives remainder as 1. So, subtracting 1 from today i.e. Sunday gives Saturday.

Add 38 days to it 35+3 = Remainder(0) + 3 day shift i.e. Saturday + 3 = Tuesday.
