Let’s Celebrate the spirit of India: Diwali Mela
Mela word reminds me the veer zara song “Jahan baap ke kandhe chad kar bachhe dekhe mela mele me nat ke tamashe kulfi ke chaat ke thele”I think we all have some golden memories of mela from our childhood. Undoubtedly Diwali Mela is the most popular mela in India. Diwali can easily be called the biggest Indian festival. The festival of lights is celebrated with so much of enthusiasm in this country that it is evident even from the outer space; one of the satellites once captured a photograph of India lit up beautifully on the Diwali night. But apart from the lamps, fireworks and sweets, Diwali is also a gifting season, wherein people shop some of the most unique things for their relatives and friends. I think Diwali mela is a great place to shop for such things.
