Summary Festivals are the one time of the year when families, communities and whole countries come together to celebrate. But what do these ritual festivals tell us about people and their cultures? Food writer and presenter Stefan Gates immerses himself in some of the most extraordinary feasts and festivals on Earth. By joining ordinary people in these strange and wonderful distillations of their culture and beliefs, he hopes to gain a revelatory insight into how the world thinks and feels. Stefan makes a journey across India to discover how feasts and celebration divide -- and bring together -- a turbulent nation that can be riven by religious tension and extremes of wealth
