Importance of Festivals in India

Festival "Rakhi" or "Raksha Bandhan" holds a very special place in the minds of people living in India and I hope all the Indian people living in abroad. It is dedicated to all brothers who pledge to protect their sisters. 18 of this month this festival is celebrated with all tradition fervour. Since then, festivals begin one after another in a row. It is rightly said that India is land of festivals. 

It begins from Rakhi and the session ends with the celebration of Holi in March. from September 5 teacher's day, Ganesh Chaturthi and canonization of Mother Teresa fall on the same day. Then, Id-ul after the festival of sacrifice and Onam came in. Soon after these festivals, worship of Goddess Durga awaiting.

In other words, during this period of time, the devotee of the whole country would lead a life in austerity as these festivals profess man to refrain from wrongdoing and indulge in malpractices. However, there is few example of some people being indulged in the offence. 

Festivals teach us to live in harmony and they talk about the idea of love, affection and fraternity. No festival celebrated here teaches us discrimination, hatred and lead life in distress. It also talks about challenges of life and the way you face them. 

Like the celebration of Ganesh symbolize to take on your worries and troubles and goddess Durga is another name for power to deal with calamities in life. Festival of Ed ul Juha for the sacrifice of a noble cause.
