The sub-continent of India is one long pageant of colorful fairs and festivals. As the days peel off the lunar calendar, the people of this country, who come from widely different racial stocks and profess widely different faiths, happily go about celebrating events. And that sure makes for an impressive list of fairs and festivals, which are more than the number of days in a year! Here are some of the major Indian fairs and festivals that are extravaganzas enough to attract tourists from all over the world every year.
The major festivals that are celebrated in India include Diwali, the festivals of lights and fire crackers; Holi, the festival of colors; Christmas; Eid-Ul-Fitr; Pongal, the harvest festival; Baisakhi; and the national holidays of the Independence Day and Republic Day, etc. Apart from all these - the Kumbh Mela has exerted a mesmeric influence over the mind and the imagination of the ordinary Indian since time immemorial. It is when millions of devout congregate on the banks of the holy river Ganges, for a dip in the sacred waters that is believed to bring spiritual salvation and contentment.
The famous Goa Carnival is an event that should not be missed. The festival brings loads of travelers from all over the world. Apart from this, the five day long Pushkar Fair of Rajasthan has more than one lakh visitors every year! It is a period of relaxation and merry-making for the villagers, and corresponds with the largest cattle fair in the country. Animals, mainly camels, are brought from miles around. Trading is brisk as several thousand heads of cattle exchange hands.
