Except for Dussehra, Deepawali, Janmashtami, Shivratri and Holi most rural festivals relate to the cropping cycle. Incidentally, a few of them at the clan level is meant to propitiate the local gods. Rural people celebrate them with fervour. They arrange feasts and exchange specially prepared foods. Similarly, rural fairs enliven the countryside with congregations from distant villages. People throng to witness wrestling bouts between well-known stalwarts to new entrants in the sport. Likewise, ladies enjoy shopping while, children take to ride in swings. Village folks buy tools useful in cropping. Consequently, these fairs and festivals bring instant joy and hope to the village folks. Sharing it with local people is both refreshing and educative.
