Announcing ~ Festive Food Event


India
, the land of varied cultures and traditions is a land of festivals and fairs. It is a land of festivity - religious as well as folkloristic. Whether you go to the East or the West, North or the South you would be able to enjoy every month a festival or a fair.
Every day of the year there is a festival celebrated in some part of the country. Be it cultural or religious, it gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy and join the festivity. Festival is the time to rejoice and have fun.
Lokmanya Tilak started Sarvajanik Ganesh Mahotsav during our fight for Independence. The purpose behind Sarvajanik Mahotsav was to bring people together and soliciting unity & integrity among Indians, thus helping India to get independence.
People come alive, one can see vibrant colours, music, dance, rich food are integral part of these festive seasons.
Purva and Priti, two strangers met on this blogosphere. Two people facing geographical hindrance, however our similarities of enjoying every moment of life have bought us together.
Being away from Homeland, and missing 'India' especially during festive time, has inspired us for ''Festive Food'' (FF) Event
Through 'Festive Food' we will celebrate all festivals, not only India, but even other festivals celebrated around the globe which we are aware of. The purpose of 'Festive Food' is to bring people together and spread the happiness of the festival season.
So here comes first Festive Food Event: Rakhi – Thread of Love and I have the opportunity to host the first event.
Rakhi or Rakshabandhan is a Hindu festival, its emotional bonding between brother and sister. A sacred thread or Rakhi is tied by sister on his brother’s wrist. Brother this way is bonded to protect his sister under all circumstances. In return brother gives sister a gift or a token of love.
So let’s celebrate Rakhi with enthusiasm and zeal by participating in this event.
Guidelines for Celebrating Rakhi – Thread of Love
1. Rakhi is celebrated in all parts of India in different ways and by preparing special goodies on this occasion. Here’s a chance to revive olden days.
Prepare a dish, which as a custom is prepared in your house. It can be anything sweet dish, any main dish, savoury snack……list goes on. Share with us how Rakhi is celebrated in your region or house and also any special memories you have associated with Rakhi. One can post hand made Rakhi or even any special Rakhi you have purchased from the market.
2. The last date for sending your entry is 20th August 2008. We don’t want participants to prepare dishes for this event specially. Our idea is participants should send entries with the dishes, which they have actually prepared on Rakhshabandhan and share with us their experience and enjoy the festival to the fullest.
