Spring time: a season of youth and vigor, a season of new beginnings! For Adivasi (tribal) Bheel, it’s the time for Bhagoria ... the Festival of Love! Bhagoria is an excellent opportunity for a young Bheel to declare his love and to propose to his beloved! While earning a livelihood is the sole purpose of any Haat, the act of finding that special someone, with whom to live one’s entire life, is what makes Bhagoria so different and special. True! Even "love-at-first-sight" in Bhagoria is an assured way to marriage. Bhagoria is not the first time young boys and girls meet. Usually they get ample opportunities and moments together in their villages and in the fields. These meetings gradually culminate in love. If the parents of the lovers do not show any interest in their marriage, Bhagoria presents an excellent opportunity to make their wish come.
