Theme Reveal A to Z Challenge

http://vidyasury.com/2014/02/a-to-z-challenge-theme-reveal-blogfest.html

The  great day  has finally arrived. We have been  reading about this A to Z Challenge for the last three weeks. There was a mixed reaction....some days were full of hope that I will be able to achieve something.  Some days so many doubts cropping up.  To write or not to write, was the biggest concern!!  

Ultimately, a light, a destination, strong will power and a bright light in the end of a tunnel has motivated me  to go ahead. Move on !!  Move on!! Move on!! came a voice from the innermost cord of my heart. All doubts have disappeared.  After playing with my thought  on various themes, I have come to  a conclusion. 

My theme for the challenge will be "Festivals of India". 

Our country, being a secular State has so much diversity. Whether it is food,dress, customs,or festivals;there is unity  in this diversity.

I have decided to write on 'Festivals of India"There are  so many festivals,but  our knowledge is restricted to those which we celebrate. In this A to Z, I have made an effort to explore the purpose behind the festival, the legend behind it and how it is celebrated. 

I hope the readers will enjoy reading and will get a peek into the details of various festivals
