Synopsis Being a vast sub-continent, India is well-known for its charm and beauty. Culturally, its contribution is fairly rich not only in Asia, but all over the world. This vast nation is most significant for its pompous, colourful fairs and festivals. Vertually, each city, town and village celebrates its fair with much eclat in which men, women and young boys and girls participate in large numbers. Being a social gathering, normally an annual feature, the people are clad in colourful costumes and thus depicts a colourful and wonderful world in several regions, viz., from North to South, West to East, North-Eastern region and Central India. The book consisting of six comprehensive volumes covers all the 28 States and 7 Union Territories.

The author has weaved the theme in a very systematic manner, and has been careful to maintain religious and cultural identity. Thus these six volumes contain numerous facts and figures which are very useful for social scientists, teachers and researchers in India and abroad.
