  Other popular festivals
 

A festival is an event, usually staged by a local community, which centers on some theme, sometimes on some unique aspect of the community. India is a land of Festivals. These Festivals are persevered throughout the year over different parts of the country. Apart from the universally celebrated festivals like Dussehra, Diwali and Ganesh Chaturthi, there

 
 

are others that are observed in specific communities or geographical areas. Hindu holidays are also restricted to particular regionsby the significance a certain god enjoys. The abundance of legends and the contradictions inherent in them is reflected in festivals too. Travel around the country, and you will hear people tell you a variety of legends concerning different gods behind a single festival. Besides, you will also find versions of the same festival being celebrated under different names in different regions. All this adds that facade of eternal novelty and constant change to the stunningly colourful kaleidoscope that is India.
