1. We know how to throw a good party.
India has over 1.2 billion people, so there’s a LOT of diversity. No matter when you visit, you’ll come across at least one festival. We have Muslim brothers lighting fireworks on Diwali (the Hindu festival), Muslims and Hindus dancing around the fire at Lohri (the Sikh festival), and Hindus visiting their Muslim friends’ houses to stuff themselves with enormous plates of sewai (rice vermicelli) on Eid, the Muslim Festival of Sacrifice.
If you happen to be in India at an odd time when there are no festivals, there are Indian weddings that last forever — from one week before the wedding day to a few days following it.
