Every year a fair is held near our village. The fair is held on the occasion of an annual cattle show. This cattle show is arranged by the whole state of Punjab.
In this fair, cattle from all corners of Punjab are brought by their owners. The cattle of the best breeds are brought there. People flock in large numbers to see the variety of animals brought here. Cows, buffaloes, bulls, oxen and other animals are brought by their masters.
As this fair attracts the people from all the neighbouring villages and states, many other items of public interest are also displayed there. When I reached the spot, I noticed many things. First of all, there was one bazaar where shopkeepers were selling articles of daily usage. In one corner, there sat a juggler. The Juggler was entertaining people with his clever tricks. His Feats were really marvellous. His mannerisms were amazing and stunning
As I moved farther. I saw a merry-go-round. On this, many boys, girls, men and women were having joy rides. There was a long queue of people patiently waiting to take a ride.
Then I moved to another side. Here, some wrestling bouts had been organised. The renowned wrestlers of the adjoining areas had come here to participate in wrestling. It was an interesting scene to see them tugging, pushing and grappling with each other. After seeing it for some time, I moved away.
From a distance, I saw a circle of people. When I went near it, I saw a snake charmer surrounded by spectators. The snake charmer was playing on his flute.
The pipe was giving out a very melodious tune. Before his flute, a serpent was dancing. The serpent seemed to be completely hypnotised by the sweet sound of the flute. It was an interesting sight enjoyed by one and all.
The fair was arranged on a grand scale. Many people had come to buy or sell their cattle, some of which fetched very high prices. Many farmers brought bulls of good breed. The cattle were nicely exhibited. Every fair-goer was buying something or the other.
I enjoyed this fair very much. It was enthralling for me to see this fair. A flood of humanity was all that could see there. In the evening, the rush began to lessen, and I too made my way for home. I felt very tired on that day but I enjoyed this delightful fair to my heart’s content.
