India celebrates the unity in diversity with so many cultural festivals celebrating all the year around.
Janamashtami is among the major festivals that is commonly observed by keeping the fasting and worshipping, believing that Lord Krishna to have been born on this day, according to our Hindu's tradition. Dahi Handi is the most commonly ritual observed. Mathura, Vrindavan, and Gokul are most crowded with their flying colors.
Here, is the beautiful Lord Krishna at the home.
Next, being Ganesh Chaturthi, is the celebration time for Lord Ganesha! During Ganeshotsav, chanting of vedic hymns, prayers are done and on the last eleventh day immersion of the idol is done.
These are the pics of this year's Ganesh Visarjan, we have done in our Society. To avoid the immersion in the water bodies, people are now becoming more aware of the environment and we started the Visarjan in our Society itself.
Durga puja or Navratri
The last week of September commences with Durga puja or Navratri and one of my favorite festivities that goes with fasting and Devi puja for nine days. Kanya Puja is done on the last day of Navratri though we should do it all the year around.
