Diwali, the festival of light, is one of the most beautiful and significant events in the country. The festival is celebrated with great pomp and joy all over the country and is known for its grand feasts, firecrackers, and celebrations. Holi, the festival of colour, is another exciting time to be in India. The colours, celebrations and feasts are sure to have you swooning with joy. Moreover, if you are really brave, you might even want to try some of the local ‘bhang’. Head over to the Thar Desert to witness the grand Pushkar Camel Fair, venture into the streets of Kolkata during Durga Puja to see hundreds of themed idols and pandals or travel to the Himalayas for exciting Himalayan festivals, echoing India’s beautiful past and deep-rooted traditions.
