Description

India is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world! As India is a society of many religions, there are a lot many festivals. Festivals in India are characterized by colour, gaiety, enthusiasm, prayers and rituals. Whichever corner of the country anyone is, festivals are celebrated with gusto! No wonder, India is rightly described as a land of festivals!

•Why is it considered inauspicious to look at the moon on Ganesh Chaturthi?

•Why do we celebrate Holi?
•How the Fir tree became the Christmas Tree?
•Why do we light Diyas at Diwali?

These are the kind of question often asked by children. The book answers these questions through mythological tales and vibrant illustrations, explaining the significance of the major festivals of India. To enjoy the festivals to the maximum with the family, it is very important for children to understand the significance, traditions and rituals behind them towards this objective, we present this book.
