A festival is a celebration; “Celebration of life.” Festivals bring uniqeness to life. They bring joy and peace to the masses. All countries have their cultural and religious festivals. Indian festivals harmonious, rich, numerous, varied and colorful.
Diwali, Raksha bandhan, Dusehra, Id-ul-Fitr, Mahavir Jayanti, Gurunanak Jayanti, Ganesh Chaturhi, Christmas,etc. are the major festivals celebrated in India. These festivals are celebrated by many different groups which are seperated socialy by languages, regions etc. but united by festivals.
We can see festive environment everywhere across India. Every Indian festival has its own significance of its rituals and prayers that are involved in the celebration process. Every religion in our country has its own festivals that are related to some mythological events.
All the festivals whether they are celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Christians etc. are socially and culturally significant. These festivals create cultural unity or brotherhood which is an excellent example of India’s “Unity In Diversity”. India is a peculiar land of various people that belong to various religions and speak various languages. But in-spite of these differences or diversities, India is united because of the festivals of India that teach us the lesson of unity in diversity.
