Festivals

Our world is a land of festivals and festivities. The festivals in India are basically meant to express gratitude to the forces of nature that help the human beings to produce wealth of food from tilling the land, to procreate and bring to life best offspring, to harness energy resources from water, air, and sun energy. Thus sun, air, water (rivers, seas, and ocean) trees and forest (that give us wood and herbs and roots as medicines) became objects of worship. Thus festivals became not only the personal, family, and social occasions of fun and merriment, but also prayer and worship of various gods and goddesses.
