Share your Mela Moments - Photo Contest

“Mela Moments’’ is an initiative by the Ministry of Culture, under the aegis of ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ to work towards popularizing melas across the country. Announced by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, during his Mann Ki Baat, the campaign aims to uplift the spirit of the upcoming festive season through visiting melas.

A thread that connects diverse India - the fairs & festivals of our country are an incredible cultural affair. The festive season, being synonymous with the season of fairs has commenced throughout the country with full gusto, & so have the traditional melas associated with them. These melas or fairs, be it religious or cultural, rural or urban, not only provide an unbroken link with the past but also play an important role in boosting the local economy.

Under this campaign, the Ministry is encouraging people to visit their nearest fairs for nostalgia-filled happiness. Through this contest, we invite you to share your treasured #MelaMomentsin HD photos & get a chance to win exciting prizes.

2. ‘ChatoriGully’ which celebrates the best of mela food,

4. ‘Mela Stalls’ showcasing the best of items displayed in the fairs.
