Festivals it is up to us to create and sustain a vibrant multiculturalism in our society the variety that adds perspective and keeps us competitive on the world stage.Festivals are important because they could represent the identity of a country.
With a much more demanding work life than earlier and with the amalgamation of cultures happening globally, we are losing our cultural identity.
Time is of utmost importance according to today’s generation. We do celebrate festivals, but more often than not, it’s more of a family get-together rather than following tradition itself. All of our festivals, have become more of coming together for a day or two, and then going back to your separate individual existence. We aren’t patient enough to go through all procedure for lack of time and more than that, a lack of interest.
In the Indian Culture there was a time when there used to be a festival every day of the year 365 festivals in a year because a festival is a tool to bring life to a state of exuberance and enthusiasm. That was the significance and importance of festivals. The whole culture was in a state of celebration.
If today was ploughing day, it was a kind of celebration.
Tomorrow was planting day, another kind of celebration.
Day after tomorrow was weeding, that was a celebration.
Harvesting, of course, is still a celebration.
But in the last 400 or 500 years, poverty has come to our country, and we have not been able to celebrate every day.
People are satisfied if they just get some simple food to eat.
So all the festivals fell away and only 30 or 40 festivals remain. We are not even able to celebrate those now because we have to go to the office or do something else daily. So people usually celebrate only around 8 or 10 festivals annually.
