Life itself is a pulsating mela in Punjab
Life in Punjab is a mela. It is about a crowd of happy-go-lucky people – men, women and children who get together to have boisterous and joyful time. It is about song and dance, eats and drinks, games and gossip. Time was when there was no need to put up a façade of the mela in the shape of tents, banners and hoardings at a particular place. Life itself was a mela round the clock or what the Italians say, ‘la dolce vita’ (the sweet life).
