It's the festive season of the year that's almost nearing and i can't help but wait to indulge and drown myself into the lively atmosphere that surrounds this city. Here is where i got to be a part of every Hindu, Bengali, Muslim and Christian festivals like Diwali and Durga Puja which is just two of the main festivals of the several Bengali and Hindus festivals, Eid-ul-fitr and Bakr-eid which are the biggest festivals of the Muslims and of course Christmas and Easter which are the festivals of my own religion( before my marriage and conversion to Islam).

Here it doesn't matter what religion you belong to when it comes to joining in the celebrations with ones own families, relatives and friends. People in India love being engaged in shopping, food and music/dance as much as people worldwide and the ‘threesome’ make sure they are the top priorities of the festive celebrators but equally along-side their own religious observance! Having said this, it does make sense to love to indulge into each others festivals even if your religion and religious beliefs don't match because of the way it is all celebrated, with great pomp and good spirit! You have to be here in India to witness the celebrations which will mesmerize your mind and keep lingering in your soul even when you are gone back to your home far away but only to wait until you are blessed to return next year for the festivities!

Note- do return to my blog tomorrow and every day for exciting details on the history, customs, food and celebrations of the coming festivals (Durga Puja and Eid-ul-fitr) in the next posts to come. Durga Puja is celebrated to commemorate the triumph of goodness over the evil and Eid-ul-fitr is celebrated to break the month-long fast of Ramadan which is presently being observed by the Muslims.
