The Indian calendar is one long procession of festivals. These are varied in origin as they are large in number. Festivals in India, like festivals in any part of the world, find expression for the people's zest for living, delight in nature and love of pageantry. This book selects prominent festivals from all over the country to explain their history and significance.
