Fairs and Festivals

The Gay and vivacious Punjabi's are very fond of fairs and festivals and almost every fortnight there is a fair or a festival in one part of the state or the other. People come to participate in such functions from far-off places, trudging dusty distances. Many a fair is held in memory of a saint or a pir, and people from all communities living in a village participate in it. Men, women and children of all ages, classes and creeds flock in hundreds and enjoy the numerous fascinating features of the fair : races, singing, wrestling bouts, acrobatics etc. They play on folk instruments,  such as Vanjli and Algoza. To a lover of culture, a Punjabi fair is an aesthetic treat. In the life of a Punjabi,  fair and festivals are always an occasion to wear new clothes. Both old and young come out in their multi-coloured and smartest best. Some enthusiasts colour and brush up even their cattle and take them along.
