Which is your favourite festival celebration?

India is best known for its wide variety of colourful festivals, languages, sports, dishes etc. I think, no other nation in this world celebrate so much celebrations as we Indians do. As it is a secular country, almost all religious festivals celebrated across the world is celebrated in India as well. So, which is your favourite festival? Which festival eve is most special for u?

Day after tomorrow, we Malayalis celebrate Onam. It is a celebration of almost 15 days and it is celebrated by all groups of people irrespective of religion which makes it special (Yet a few Muslim groups stay away). Onam is so special for every Malayalam speaking person, and every person has some deep childhood memories associated with it. For me too!

My favorite festivals are of course, Diwali, followed by Ganesh Utsav and Gauri Poojan. Ganesh and Gauri installed in my home is a wonderful and beautiful experience. These 5-6 days of celebration are marked by a divine feeling in the atmosphere, aromas and fragrance of special traditional foods, flowers, attars, burning of camphor and incense etc. Laughter and joyful chatter of my son, niece, nephews, guests in home etc.

The best part is the time spent with either my sister or sister-in-law is when we install the Gauris, spend time decking them up with beautiful new sarees and various jewellery. IMG 20160905 203114 Copy

I love Diwali festival. I find Diwali as most enjoyable and brightful festival. Lot of things we do in 5 days of Diwali festival. The most important part of Diwali I like is decoration of house and preparation of diwali food items like chakali, chiwada, ladoos, etc. 

This festival makes environment very pleasant and happy. I enjoy when we family members gather during Diwali, sit and chat till late night.

Hey Sandhya ... hope you had a great onam. And a special High-Five for being a malayali... This year onam was special as it was the my daughters first onam (she is 6 months old). And every year after marriage onam is one festival where my parents come to our home without fail. So i love onam for that too... :):)

My first choice is Durga Puja. Diwali and Bhai Dooj come second and Saraswati Puja has a special place in my heart. As student praying to Goddess Saraswati was an important ritual and now I pray her more than I did during my childhood due to my son's educational future. Bengalis have a special connection with Durga Puja so I am no exception to it. Diwali is basically a nation wide festival which is to drive away darkness and Bhai Dooj (in Bengali it's Bhai Phota) is very special as it strengthens the bond between brothers and sisters.

My favorite one is Durga Puja, the Grand celebration for ten days. I enjoy every bit of it- the daily puja, visiting pandals, enjoying the delicacies and my favorite dandiya. Now a days I stay in South India. So have witnessed a total different flavor of the festival - Golu, the arrangements of dolls on steps. Enjoy visiting my friends houses who invite us for Golu and Haldi Kumkum.

Next on my list is Raksha Bandhan and Bhai Dooj. Brought up in a huge joint family and being the only girl, these festivals bring a nostalgic feeling. Tying rakhi to more than dozen hands and overwhelmed by the love and gifts. Now we all are in different corners of Globe but these two days bring that feeling back. Calls from my brother and big gang of cousins, their love and blessings keep pouring on phone though we have not met for years. And on a lighter note, I enjoy the transactions- cash flow from different corners of the world in to my bank account and a lots of gifts through courier.
