The nicest part about the Mela is that it is always a big melting pot of cultures and peoples, all enjoying the festival. Having missed the festival last year we noticed that it had changed and not for the better either. There were lot's of fairground rides, shooting galleries, ghost train, and other tacky things that made it seem more like a British fairground rather than the traditional Indian festival that it has been in the past. Also missing was the more traditional Indian musicians. However it was still a pleasant experience and plenty of portaloos this time which was an improvement. I hope they get comments about the lack of tradition and get it back for next year. We had Lamb Biriyani for lunch which was superb.
I hope you enjoy these photo's.
