I could see myself smiling as the glass panel above reflected myself. Yes, we are going to Santiniketan for a few days. Breaking open the shackles of a daily routine. I rang my home phone to confirm my family that we can get cracking on the holidays. All we had planned was a 4-5 days of break from the city; visit the famous 'poush mela', a fair and festival which gets held between 22nd and 27th of December every year at Santiniketan, located in Birbhum district of West Bengal state, India. The fair starts on the 7th day of the month of Poush, the fair is typically for three days, although vendors remain busy selling until 31st Dec.
We also wanted to see few live performances too of Bengali folk music, especially baul music as they are seen singing at various venues this time. Follow it with a drive around the town and visit few more places within a radius of 100 kms.
Well, not much you can cover in few days; will do it in a relaxed manner.
