Poush Mela Review

A great time to visit Shantiniketan is during the town's biggest festival, Poush Mela, which is usually held December 22 to 25. The festival includes huge fairs where handicrafts and bric-a-brac are sold and performances of bauls (wandering minstrels) who sing their unique variety of folk songs.
