There are thousands of people who are attracted to this festival for different reasons. Some love art, some music, and some dance. This festival assures you an eventful time viewing some of the best art the common man has ever seen.

This years festival is also very exciting. The place is crowded with people and stalls which showcased different kinds of art and creativity from all around India, specially the traditional art.

I visited the festival today(6th february) and was overwhelmed looking at the crowd and the enthusiasm I could see all around me. every stall was full of people and everywhere I saw people clicked photographs to capture the beauty of art all around. There were some things that caught my attention like these :-
