Offering you a new life experience

Kolti Badi Diwali

Badi Diwali is the biggest festival of the year among the lively Jaunpuris and the celebrations go on for two days. All the Kolti dwellers are back home for the 11th and 12th of December to live a life that is rightfully theirs and to make merry with all the colours and flavors of hills that they identify themselves with. These two days of Badi Diwali are eagerly awaited by all Jaunpuris as the time for getting together and sharing happiness, raw and true, with those who share the same cultural roots and also those who are eager enough to venture out of their prejudices and comfortable homes to live with them this beautiful experience. Folk music and dance are major parts of this ambiance of rejoice and so are the traditionally prepared poori and sabzi. Diwali, being the festival of lights, is celebrated with Holdas made of wood and thread. Holdas are lighted up and swung in the air with cries of joy and then thrown away. It’s a delight to watch them rocketing away, burning with just natural yellow fire and minimal pollution.
The program ‘Kolti Badi Diwali’ is mainly about participating in this big cultural event of Jaunpur. But it also involves nature walks and birding trips. It is a unique cultural-eco travel experience for every free spirit eager to get a taste of other cultures and virgin nature.
