Taj Mahotsav

Agra is famous not only for ‘TAJ MAHAL”  but also for “Taj Mahotsav” which is a ten-day long cultural festival generally conducted in February. Concerts of ace artists from the music and traditional dance community are organised with great pride to showcase Indian culture. These performances of various dance forms and the classical vocal and instrumental concerts are worth spending money on.

Besides the cultural events the craftsmen from all over India also put up their handiwork for sale but it’s up to the customer to strike up a bargain and get a good deal. Some good handicraft are seen at one spot in these ten days.

Must visit!


About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....
