Item description for Fairs & Festivals (Incredible India) by Uma Vasudev...
In India, the landscape is primarily of celebration. Barely does one festival end to commemorate the seasons, when another follows to hounour a god, a prophet or a saint. The festivals of India embody the face and voice of this ancient tradition and their variety and the expression of the creativity of its people. It is in its festivals that the country finds its many faces, its innumerable forms, its kaleidoscopic colours, and innovative spirit and yet within that there runs the defining commonality that says emphatically: this is India. What comes out of this cultural cauldron is still the commonality that manages to let so many cultural, religious and racial differences live and find their own individual path to commemorate a racial, mythological and historical memory as well as celebrate a cultural continuity. This book takes the reader through the unique blend of cultural strands that weave the magic of this land.
