CONCLUSION:

India is a country where different religious people exist, and every religion has its unique festivals. Nowadays, we all have friends from different states and religions, and we like to enjoy or get involved in each other’s festivals by visiting their homes and having fun.

We do also celebrate our cultural festivals with our family and friends. The list of festivals and holidays is given in the article.

 India was known as the “Golden Bird” because it has variants of color, species, religions, and many more in one nation. For me, India is still a “Golden Bird.”
