The Indian Festivals!
Fairs and festivals are a huge part of India’s cultural heritage. Festivals may be celebrated to mark a new season or year, in honour of a certain deity or to celebrate a certain mythological or historical event. It is a time of much fun and fanfare, prayers and rituals, music and dance and some mouth-watering culinary delights.
Fairs may or may not be held around the time of a festival. People gather during a fair to trade, participate in contests and games and for some general merry-making. Fairs are also known to reflect the local ethos and promote local handicrafts and art forms..
Quick Facts
  • Fasting at festivals is common. Hindus all over India observe fast on festivals like Navaratri, Shivratri and Karwa Chauth. Navaratri is a festival when people fast for nine days
