Festivals are an integral part of Indian culture. Personally, I hate the commercialization of festivals that have diluted the essence of cultural and social integration. However, a majority chunk of the population loves to enjoy the festival on a grand scale. While Maharashtra celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi on a grand scale, Kolkata is passionate about Durgotsava. The grandeur of various Durga puja pandals in Kolkata clearly indicates its love for this festival.
