Fair and Festivies

The colourful mosaic of Indian festivals and fairs – as diverse as the land, is an expression of the spirit of celebration that is an essential part of the country. Observed with enthusiasm and gaiety, festivals are like gems, ornamenting the crown of Indian culture. Packed with fun and excitement, festivals are occasions to clean and decorate houses, to get together gifts. New attire, dance music and ritual, all add to their joyful rhythm. It is a time for prayer, for pageantry and procession… a time to rejoice…
