My visit to the Village Fair
India is a land of villages though urbanization is taking place at a fast pace. Still, most of the people in India live in villages. They do not have many means of entertainment and shopping in the village. But fairs, which are held frequently in villages, provide them a welcome relief.
A fair is also held in my village every year on the day of Baisakhi. The Baisakhi always falls on the thirteenth day of April every year. It is on this day that the farmers start harvesting their wheat crops in northern India. Hence the day is celebrated with great joy A very large numbers of people from nearby villagers were making a bee-line to the fair. There were a large number of stalls. At many stalls, sweets and other eatables were available in large quantities. Large-turbaned men and women, with their heads covered, were sitting on benches and were eating colourful barfi, rasgullas and gulab jamuns. Still others were taking purees and kachories with cooked grams or potatoes. Some stalls were selling colourful toys, balloons and balls. There was a great rush at stalls selling ladies’ items like glass bangles, bracelets, necklaces, nail-polishes, lipsticks and several other items of artificial jeweler. In one corner, a juggler was showing his tricks. while a large crowd of people stood around.
There were certain games of skill in one stall which was a special attraction for the merry young men. However, one great attraction of the fair was the “Bhangra”, the folk dance of Punjab, which was being performed most enthusiastically by young boys for the sheer joy of doing it. And similar was the case with “Giddha” performed by young girls. The fair was like a paradise.
