A VILLAGE FAIR
Most Indians live in villages. Village folks are very fond of fair. These fairs reflect the true character of our culture and tradition.
Every year a big fair is held in our village on the Baisakhi Day. It is an important day for villagers. This year ‘I went to see it with my friends. We saw a large crowd in the fair. All roads led to the site of the fair. Villagers in their colourful dresses looked attractive.
A temporary bazaar was set up in the fair. Sweets, fruits and toys were displayed in abundance in shops. There were a large number of hawkers also. Cold drinks, ice-cream, kulfi, faluda and fancy articles were in great demand. Men, women and children were making purchases. Girls were buying bangles while children were after balloons. All were making merry. Some people were enjoying sports and games while others were singing and dancing. It was all fun everywhere.
In one corner there was a merry-go-round. Children and grownups were enjoying rides on it. At another place, a jugular was showing tricks and amusing the spectators. Policemen in large number were standing nearby. They were guiding the people. The lost children were being resorted to their parents. After sunset we returned home happy. How I wish to enjoy such events again and again!
