When festivals do open thier doors to the world again, things could be very different from how they used to be. Socially distanced dancing, restricted use of toilet facilities and other changes could be put in place, along with reduced capacity for alot of bigger festivals. One thing that will also likely disappear is dry ice blasting, such as that seen in clubs where the fog machine creates a lot of fog using dry ice.
Dry Ice Blasting Gone From Festivals
Dry ice blasting could be removed from festivas due to a shortage of the material. Covid has called for most of the dry ice stores to be used in storage and transportation of the vaccine that is being roled out this week. Festivals it seems, will take a back seat to this demand.
Our Favourite Festivals
A festival is generally an annual event usually celebrating a special characteristic or aspect of the local community and its culture or religions. It can also be commemorated as a national or local holiday, special day, or a religious festival. This event is celebrated with great zeal and interest by inhabitants of a country. The festival might be held for a short duration or long duration depending on the prevailing circumstances of the country and the local conditions. A festival is usually associated with some particular hero figure in popular traditions. In many Indian festivals and celebrations, there is a quest of finding a person or a thing that belongs to the god or the goddess.
There are various kinds of festivals, each having its own significance. Film festivals, music festivals, art and craft festivals, and fairs are some of the notable festivals that are celebrated with great enthusiasm by the people of a country. A festival is normally planned and coordinated by the government with the help of its people and organizations. Apart from being organized by the government, there are private festivals too that are celebrated with great joy by the artists and the participants of such festivals.
Among the major Indian festivals are the New Year festivals, Diwali festivals, Lodi festivals, Mysore festivals, Indian Film Festival, comedy festivals, folk festivals, skinning festivals, film festivals, Kazhikari festival, and other theater festivals. There are different types of festivals that are celebrated in different parts of India. The main characters in these festivals are the deities of various divine traditions. Similarly, the events also include elements associated with different spiritual traditions. Music is the integral part of most of the events. A number of popular artists and actors are also present in these events.
New Year Around The World
While the New Year celebration is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm in the northern region of India, the other main seasons, Lodi or Laxmi, and Diwali, are equally joyous. In the state of Tamil Nadu, the Lodi festival also known as the Velli Niva takes place at this time. The most famous among the music festivals is the New Year bash, which is celebrated at the end of February/ beginning of March. This is followed by Mysore festival which is also celebrated at the same time as the Lodi festival.
In the state of Kerala the most celebrated animation festivals are Koodiyattom and the cartoon festival. The Koodiyattom is characterized by the process of narration of a mythological story in a riotous manner. There are a number of other animation festivals too that are celebrated in different parts of India. Most of the animation festivals are held to celebrate different occasions like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas and many more.
The animation artists usually create these festivals with the support of the trade or the marketing industry. The festivals are celebrated to bring good fortune and prosperity in the near and dear ones’ lives. It is believed that these festivals were originally created for the good wishes of the parents. With the passage of time these festivals have become different from the original stories and now add a little humor to it.
