Over India Festivals
|An integral part of Indian culture, Indian festivals
are innumerable in number and are equally varied in origin
marking the national, regional, local, religious, seasonal
and social fervour. The Indian calendar is one long procession
of festivals dedicated to various deities, saints, prophets
and also seasons, with every day of the year being observed
as a festival, in some part of the country. Each festival
is unique in style and is characterised by colour, gaiety,
enthusiasm, feasts and heterogeneity of prayers and rituals.
Many of these festivals are common to most parts of India,
though called by different names and celebrated differently,
in the various parts of the country.
