A country as vast and diverse as India never ceases to surprise us. Be it the food, the people, the geography, or the festivals, you can find new experiences almost every day and it can still take you forever to see it all. But there are some events in India that you should just not miss and the Purushwadi Fireflies Festival in Maharashtra is one of them. Unlike any other festival in the country, it is the fireflies which make the festival what it is.

What is it about

In this rare blend of natural occurrence and man-made traditions, you get to witness millions of twinkling fireflies in the night, caused by bio-luminescence, which is quite a marvellous sight. Fireflies do it to attract their mating partner, but it's quite a celebration for the whole village for all in Purushwadi. Who knew Diwali is not the only festival of lights in India!
