We all find are up to finding reasons to celebrate.Why?According to me the reason does not lie in the monotonous environment around us but it lies in the discovery of happiness with in us. We don’t crave for religion or events to give a reason to celebrate we create these as events as a cover up to let go.
Festivals are not god fearing or god believing events they are the essence of tradition, a symbol of happiness.Carnivals are all over the world and we people are stuck in what’s near and whats ours. I strongly believe one should let go of this territorial bond and live these moments across the world.
