Let's know Festivals of India
Let's know Festivals of India
Description
From the Back of the Book

Indian calendar is one long procession of festivals and fairs. These are as varied in origin as they are large in number. They reflect India's culture, civilization and history. They are a celebration of life itself and a cementing force of Indian society. Most of the festivals like Janmashtami, Ram Navami, Christmas, Buddha Purima, Durga puja and Gurpurabs celebrate religious occasions and birthdays of gods and guru and are marked by traditional ceremonies, ritual practices, worship, prayer and solemnity. Other festivals like Basant Panchami, Bihu, Lohri, Holi, Baisakhi, which mark of seasons of the year and harvesting of crops, are occasions for fun, frolic, feasts, music and dance. Karwa Chauth and Raksha Bandhan are festivals which are unique. Mohurram is not a festival but a martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the grandson of prophet Mohammad, which is marked by observance of 10 day mourning.

A number of festivals have evolved from ancient legends and celebrate the victory of good over evil. A number of them are common to most parts of India, sometimes, under different names. If one can be in the right place at the right time, it is possible to witness a festival each day. The festivals of India are so numerous that they run almost all the year round.

Indian festivals are thus a mosaic of myriad practices which, though diverse, are not divisive. In fact, whatever be the denomination of the festival, there is an emotional, if not physical, participation in the celebrations by members of all communities regardless of caste, creed and faith. This is what has kept India going strong for ages.

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
