From Kashmir to Tamil Nadu, from Bengal to Rajasthan, people are so different from each other in terms of ethnicity, in religion, in the way of life. Even the manner of dressing is varying from region to region.
To tell the truth, folk festivals are a very important social element here in India, the connecting and uniting element, a powerful tool for uniting castes, peoples, and beliefs.
