A largest donkey fair, famous for being India's biggest bargaining bonanza event has been organised in Uttar Pradesh where thousands of traders come to buy the donkeys and other animal at cheap rates. Looks just like the movies of the old world. Most animals here are purchased by contractors who use them for transporting materials. The fair has over 60,000 donkeys, all colourfully dress up in ribbons and anklets to get your attention. It is definitely a fun and unique experience. I was so tempt to buy one just for the sake of participation, and trade it to some local merchant. While in Ballia, can try out some of the local favorites, quite different from your normal naan and curry. Accomodation is fairly reasonable,just need to look around
