CULTURE

Festivals

What is India if not celebrating a festival! Singing, dancing, creating light where there was darkness, throwing colour on every thing and every one, participations in processions through the cities and eating a lot of tasty sweets. Almost at any given point of time, there is a chance or a reason to celebrate. Lets join the culture and celebrate in the jungle.

Holi - Festival of colours
Depending on the moon, Holi - the festival of colours, is celebrated at the end of February or beginning of March. It is one of the most ancient Indian festival and it is fun by definition. Finally we can play like we dreamed when we were kids! The night before the Holi-day there is a big fire to destroy the evil and remember the sacred story of Holika. The next day colours are thrown all over, to show the world the colours of joy and happiness, the victory of good over evil.

Diwali - The Festival of lights
Where there is light there is wisdom. Where there is Wisdom there you will find peace. Diwali is the festival of lights and the beginning of the Hindu new year. Every where in the cities, in the villages and in the jungles you will find candles, lights and a lot of firecrackers. Diwali can be a time of silence and insight with a lot of beautiful Indian butter lamps or a joyful time with friends, crackers and sweets.

Indigenous Culture
The culture of the local communities is still very close to nature. The seasons play an important role as the most of the families are involved in farming. It is a mix of the traditional Hindu-culture and the traditions of the Gond and the Baiga Tribes. There are till day a lot of mystical events which includes different levels of consciousness, like Trance-Dancer and Drum players.

WHICH EVER FESTIVAL YOU CHOOSE TO BE IN INDIA, IT IS ALWAYS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE TO BE PART OF THE WARM AND COLOURFUL INDIAN TRADITION!
