“The Importance and relevance of Festivals – highlight any/only One Festival of any Country”
Centuries ago there were civilizations. I've read that they used to tie a knot for every event.
With the time religions have come into existence and the "God".
With the God, has come festivals.
Starting from India, different countries have different rituals, cultures, religions and the ways to celebrate their festivals.
With the time the human life needed few important days and dates to celebrate respectively such are the days representing or symbolising leaders or the diseases and spreading awareness against it.
As an Indian and a Hindu I celebrate the following listed below:
Dusshera Deepavali Holi
The major festivals of Hindus.
As I am the resedent of Andhra Pradesh and been in Telangana, I celebrate Sankranti, Ganesh chaturthi, Ugadi, I've come across Bonalu, Batukamma etc.
Shivratri, Krishnastami and Ram Navami are other among celebrated.
Christmas in the world, New Year in the world, Tomato festival in Spain and and Halloween in American continents and many tribal festivals are the ones I'm aware of.
Myself and the Festivals:
My Father is from Indian Air Force and I'm the aspirant of Indian Army. In my childhood I've celebrated all the festivals. With time I've become elder.
Now the Festivals are mere holidays for me. Hence, I've/I've developed different opinions and perceptions regarding festivals.
With the vast variety of habits I hold and the hobbies and interests I've, I never had friends. For a decade, i lived a life surrounding four walls. And the college, office...
were the things I was fond of. My desire and my sorrows are mentioned in the poetry and sketches.
With the time and the years passing by and the resolutions I've taken; achieve something (satisfying my heart) everyday: making a sketch, writing a poem either in Telugu, Hindi or English.
I started celebrating my achievements. Every small achievement was my success. Thereby I got habituated of celebrating almost everyday.
I'd say, one should celebrate everyday of life he's living. This is how I come to celebrate the days irrespective of festivals.
Now, I'm utilising internet in a manner where there are stranger chatting apps like whisper and I receive appreciations for my way of behaviour and convincing them. Is it less than a festival?
Festivals and their consequences:
Firstly, I'd mention about the temples. In India as there are no rules to be followed for religious practices; Indian temples shout using the technology of Mike and Stereo system while the people suffer and scream in their houses. In the early morning when everyone is sleeping temples begin their so called prayers on mike. Everyone is behind money. The "babas" start doing all rituals never seen and heard of.
Ganesh chaturthi: Everyone is well aware of the consequences of Plaster of Paris in the idols of Ganesha. In Mumbai and Hyderabad one could realise it's worst effects. The idols do not sink or immerse because they're not biodegradable.
Deepawali: The festival of lights; has become the festival of nightmares. Including doctors are scared of this festival because they don't know who will come with what complaint.
From hands to eyes and body people get affected.
The second part is pollution.
Compared to the foreign countries, our Indian contribution to pollution is nothing. Still we're effecting our own soil, air and people.
"On Social media, I read a many stories of the festival or the rituals, animals are slaughtered."
"My Festivals: The ones I celebrate."
I write a poem- I share.

Just yesterday, I/my essay got selected for editor's choice. I've celebrated it by sharing email.
I'm tired of finding myself
Only in myself
Was the tough
Rough journey though
I didn't step back
Neither I had flip my future
I appreciate my guts
The only way I could see
I could hear
The pain I should bear
I was bare
The skeleton is frozen
Because I was chosen
Not being brat
I was always mild
I do not want to
Finding myself in myself
I'd not know the result
But I'd surely give a try
I want to
I want to
Being certain with the opportunity
To maintain the hygiene
Of my character
Which has never fumbled
I'm still repenting
For being human
I'd wish to master
I'd love to do mischiefs
I'd surrender to the failures
I'd love to show my ego;
I'd like to feel guilty
For everything I've not done
Which is called life
Never are or were the circumstances;
I'd Want to bring
I'd like to sing
This is how I live. I celebrate my work. I celebrate my everyday. And I conclude my essay.
