A Village Fair that I Visited
A fair is held in my village every year on the day of Baisakhi. The Baisakhi always falls on the thirteenth day of April every year. It is on this day that the farmers start harvesting their crops. Hence the day is celebrated with great joy with only little variations from, village to village. I went to see the Baisakhi fair held in my village last year. It covered quite a vast area outside the village.
A very large numbers of people from nearby villages were making a bee-line to the fair. There were a large number of stalls. At many stalls, sweets and other eatables were available in large quantities. They were taking their choice able foods from the stalls.
Different stalls were collecting and selling different types of items. Some stalls were selling colourful toys, balloons and balls. There was a great rush at stalls selling ladies’ items like glass bangles, bracelets, necklaces, nail-polishes, lipsticks and several other items of artificial jeweler.
In one corner, a magician was showing his tricks. And in another corner a snake-charmer was singing with his pipe in front of a Cobra who had its hood raised while a large crowd of people stood around.
However, the fair was really enjoyable and it gave me much pleasure and from it I collected much practical knowledge.
