Once I visited a village on the festival of Basant. A fair was being held on the bank of a small river. I walked to the fair along with my friend. We met many villagers on the way. They were also going to see the fair. They were wearing new clothes. They looked very happy. The women were going to the fair in groups. They were singing folk songs. There was a great activity in the fair. There were shops of all kinds. There were also merry- go-rounds. We had a joy ride in them. There were rope dancers and magicians. The jugglers were also showing their tricks. There was a small temple in the fair. Many scouts were controlling the traffic. They were guiding the people and controlling the crowd.
