Toys and Festivals :
Festivals are the occasions that commemorate history, and we get a glimpse of history and culture through them. Toys are used as symbols and models to keep the history of each festival alive in the minds of the people as well as children. For instance, the models of forts and soldiers are made to mark the birth anniversary of the Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaja.
- The various equipment and things that are used for entertaining and educating children are called toys.
- Sometimes toys are used during certain festivals.
- Their use gives a glimpse of the religious and cultural traditions of a particular country. For e.g. Model forts are made as a part of traditional Diwali celebrations in Maharashtra. Clay images of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, his soldiers, and also people & animals are placed on these forts. Through this tradition, the memory of the importance of forts in the history of Maharashtra is kept alive.
