Promote traditional fairs, they connect people and hearts: PM Modi

During his recent Mann Ki Baat, PM Narendra Modi spoke about fairs being of great cultural importance in the country. Fairs connect people and hearts, he said.



The PM mentioned a letter regarding the fair of Chamba in Himachal Pradesh, and said: “The inflorescence of the maize plant is called Minjar. When flowers bloom on the maize, Minjar mela is celebrated and in this fair, tourists from all over the country come from far and wide to take part. If you have gone to visit Himachal, you can go to Chamba to see this fair. ‘Chambe Ek Din Ona Kane Mahina Raina’ (those who come to Chamba for a day, they stay back here for a month).”



He also spoke about another fair called Jagra in September. In Jagra fairs, Bisu songs are sung after invoking the deity of Mahasu. This awakening of Mahasu Devta takes place in Himachal at Shimla, Kinnaur and Sirmaur, as well as in Uttarakhand.



The PM further highlighted the many traditional fairs of tribal societies in different states. The four-day Samakka-Saralamma Jatara fair in Medaram, Telangana, is a big centre of faith for the Koya tribal community, not only in Telangana, but also in Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. The Maridamma fair in Andhra Pradesh is also a big event connected with the beliefs of tribal society. “These fairs are the true spirit of Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat,” Modi emphasised.
