Moments of celebration, be it of religious significance or merely victory of our favourite sport team, it is a festival. We are entwined to our cultural origins, festivals are the timely reminders to get past our problems and cherish the present with the people we love. Unlike present circumstances, where entertainment is just a few clicks away, in earlier times festivals offered a major share of entertainment. Not just that, these cultural celebrations let us pass our ethical and religious beliefs to the next generations too.
