New Year fervor grips all faiths
Posted on Mon , 31 Dec '12
The New Year has just begun and it is a festive time. India celebrated Christmas and New Year with gaiety and enthusiasm. Bengaluru in Karnataka, too, celebrated in its own special way with cakes and bakes. Every year during the festive period a cake exhibition is organized at the sprawling playgrounds of the St. Joseph's Indian Composite High School. The flavour at the 38th cake cake exhibition was communal harmony. On prominent display at the exhibition was a 'Pentagon of Communal Harmony', an enormous 22 ft long, 22 ft wide and 16 ft high Cake. It sent out a message of communal harmony between Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and Sikhs. The pentagon, made from powdered sugar, gelatin, flavouring and colouring agents, along with other smaller cakes, took 40 people two months to finish, each working 12 hours daily. It attracted people from different religions from India, and abroad.
