Description for Festival of India - Chhath Pooja
Festival of India - Chhath Pooja: Festivals are an integral part of any culture. Celebrated throughout the year, the galaxy of Indian Festivals makes the Indian Heritage the richest. Vibrant colors, brightly lit places, traditional cuisines and sweets, dance and music, dresses and ornaments, fasting and feasting, exchanging gifts and good will, prayers and processions, rituals and holidays, to welcome a new season or a new year, the harvest or the rain, on religious occasions or birthdays of Gods, saints and gurus or to worship the Sun and the Moon. Regions or reasons may vary and so do the names, but, the festive spirit, concept of universal brotherhood, warm hospitality and enthusiasm appeals to people across the globe to be a part of it. Sun, the most revered natural element is considered the god of energy and the force of life and is venerated to request the granting of certain wishes, during the Hindu festival 'Chhath Pooja'. The Chhath Pooja is performed on Kartik Shukla Shashti, six days after Diwali, in the month of October or November. It is observed most elaborately in North Indian regions like Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh and in the areas where migrants from those areas have a presence. The rituals are rigorous and the'Parvaitins' have to maintain purity during the four days of 'Chhath Pooja'. These days are 'Nahakha', 'Kharna' and 'Daala Chhath Vrat', which include 'Sanjhiya Aragh followed by Bihaniya Aragh' the next morning. A vivid display of colors turns the occasion into a carnival at a riverbank, pond or a common large water body where the entire household accompanies the 'Parvaitin' to make the offerings (Aragh) to the setting and then the rising sun in celebrating its glory as the cycle of birth starts with death. Chhath Pooja's Yogic or scientific history dates back to Vedic Times. It is a beautiful, spiritual experience connecting the modern Indian to his ancient cultural roots
