Indian Festivals Calendar

India is a land of fairs and festivals and every month, one or the other fair/festival occurs. Festivals in India symbolize color, gaiety, enthusiasm, prayers and rituals. People coming to India from abroad are awestruck by the scale and multiplicity of Indian festivals/fairs. Through fairs and festivals, we in India remember and commemorate the birthdays and great deeds of gods, goddesses, hero's, gurus, prophet's and saints.
