India is a beautiful country with an ancient culture that is celebrated with a lot of excitement. The festival calendar in India is always full but some upcoming festivals are extremely important in India. Every person is blessed with their sense of style and fashion. Some people like modern outfits while others like traditional Indian outfits. Not all women are interested in following fashion trends while some women follow every trend in every fashion season.
