Amid the sordidness of mundane life, a quest for peace and prosperity seems to be a wild goose chase, as Man’s unquenching thirst for love, lust and power leaves him nowhere but in a dreary desert of ceaseless profligacy. But it is fast, festivals and celebrations which with their divine forces steer him out to merge with the beatitude of supernatural and spiritual progress of life on earth.
