“A Maghi Mela or a proper fair related to Lohri celebrations was not held earlier in Chandigarh so we have organised it as a pioneering effort. For  all  the  fun  loving  families  looking  forward  to  spend  some  quality  time  together, it  is  an  amazing  opportunity  to  taste delicious  cuisines  of  different  varieties, have  fun  while  playing  games  and  shop  together.” Said Rahul Sharma, the main organiser of the event.

 The  choice  of  Rajasthani  theme  sets  this  event  apart  from  others.

 It is  important to  organize such  events  to  maintain  harmony  and  affection  among  families  and  community. Organisation  of  such  events  in  the  city  is  not  only  a  perfect  package  for  families  to  capture  some  moments  together  but  they  also  celebrate  the  unison  and  blend  of  rich  Indian  culture.
