Chandani Padvo – A Festival of Surti Lala’s (Surat)

This day has a Story, where on the day of Sharad Purnima Lord Krishna Performed Ras-Leela with Thousands of Gopis and many Gujarati’s used to keep fast on that day and break the fast after Consuming “Doodh-Pooha”

On the Very Next Day, Chandani Padvo falls, where the people of Surat Used to celebrate Chandani Padvo by Sitting Aside of the Road and Consume Ghaari & Bhusu of different varieties. Day by Day the Culture Got Some Changes Now the Modish Surties use to go on Picnics, at Farmhouses, Dumas, Daman etc…  To have fun and eat a lot of Ghaari on that day. Every year Surtis export more than 100 tons of Ghaari. Delish Bhusu- A Namkeen mixture is famously Consumed and Distributed among family and friends. Surti’s Fondness doesn’t stop here only Packed boxes are sent to foreign countries.

Team City Tadka Has Covered the Sweet Place s of Surat, Unbelievingly there were long Queues at Every Sweet Shop, we Fall for 24Carat and C. Jamnadas & Co. Ghariwala. Delicious Ghaari’s To go Crazy For 🙂
