Though India is a year round holiday destination, it is around the autumn-winter, expats and international tourists are found struggling to get air tickets on cheap flights as the country celebrates major fests during this period. Let’s take a look at some of the important fiestas celebrated in India between late September and early November.
Considered to be the key festival of eastern India, it signifies the success of goddess Durga over the demon Mahisasura.
