Sonepur Mela, Showing off Horses for Sale

The World > Asia > India

The Sonepur Mela of Bihar is organized every year in the Hindu month of Kartik (November). The mela (fair) is held on the embankment of River Ganga at Sonepur. They call this the worlds largest cattle fair and for the amount of people that may be true, but sadly there really are not that many animals. I would have to guess 50 elephants, 60 cattle, 400 horses, 300 goats and a few other types of animals

    Det här panoramat togs i India, Asia

    Detta är en översikt av Asia

    Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

    Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

    China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

    Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
    Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

    Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

    I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

    The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

    China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
