is a land of festivals and fairs. Every day of the year there is
a festival celebrated in some part of the country. Some festivals
welcome the seasons of the year, the harvest, the rains, or the
full moon. Others celebrate religious occasions, the birthdays of
divine beings, Saints, and gurus (revered the teachers), or the
advent of the new year. A number of these festivals are common to
most parts of India-however, they may be called by different names
in the various parts. Or, may be celebrated in a different fashion.
