राजसमंद में द्वारकाधीश मंदिर में होली महोत्सव के दौरान होली डंडा रोपण से एक माह के दौरान 6 दिन राल नामक पदार्थ का जलती हुई मशालो पर दागा जाता है, इससे वातावरण में उपस्थित कीटाणुओं का नाश होता है, ऐसी मान्यता है, समूचे भारतवर्ष का एक मात्र स्थान है जहां इस प्रकार उत्सव मनाया जाता है

जिला स्तर पर सभी हितधारकों को शामिल करते हुए एक सांस्कृतिक समिति होनी चाहिए जो उस क्षेत्र की सभी प्रासंगिक सामग्रियों के समेकन और एक पुस्तक और सांस्कृतिक मेलों और प्रश्नोत्तरी प्रतियोगिता में प्रकाशन और हमारे स्वतंत्रता आंदोलनों और इसकी अनूठी संस्कृति के ऐतिहासिक महत्व जैसी गतिविधियों को कर सके। कैसे वह क्षेत्र खुद को हमारी आने वाली पीढ़ियों के लिए पथ प्रदर्शक के रूप में पेश कर सकता है|ताकि आने वाली पीढ़ी को भी इस संस्कृति चीजो का गियान हो सके और वो व् अपने संस्क्रति को ण भूले और हमे खद भी इस चीजो पे कम करना परेगा |धन्यवाद .

there should Be national digital data base portal for all festivals in India . it should also contain "how they are celebrated, related rituals and things which are needed to celebrate that".
generally India festival has 3 significant layers.
First it has aspect of Bio indication e gm change in season, harvest, sowing etc. Second aspect is related Celestial arrangements as per Hindu calander and Third is story related to it from Ramayan ,Mhabharat, Purana etc. so Central data base portal shall have all three aspect of such a portal. So such minor festivals can be found in traditional society only,which is rural India. So MyGOV should be in contact with All Sarpanch of villages and this mission should be assigned to them to let know about all festivals, then Mygov team can bifurcate minor festivals out of it. Same pattern for tribal areas.
