All India Festivals
The all India festivals are reflection of cultural ethos of India, mainly the Hindus. The dominant religion of India, Hinduism, has been essentially tolerant. It assimilated rather than converted other groups. Pluralism in Hinduism as a value implied tolerance of other styles of life while preserving one’s own. This unique tendency and nature of Indian society reflect in various festivals being celebrated by all sections of society with gusto. The festivals in India are numerous, diverse and colorful. The festivals in India are not only celebration of life but also a means to conserve culture, heritage, history and traditions. The festivals in India are subtle means to pass on incredible treasure of Indian civilization to next generation. The fairs and festivals are so interwoven in the very texture of Hindu society that tradition and creativity co-exist.
