Are festivals for the people or are people for the festivals

Festival are made for the people first and not people for the festival, then why we do not care our life first, if we are participation of any of the such events which are related in the name of religion and festivals.
Rescue operations are still underway, a high level meeting is chaired by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on the boat tragedy that claimed 24 lives, including some minors. The biggest question Nitish can answer.
As the divers are in the water to search for any more bodies, yet another team of police is on the search to arrest the owner of the amusement park and the boat owners for illegally ferrying passengers across the river.
As per the report from times, there are several things which have come to light. Heavy advertisements were put across all the places to make this kite festival a great success but it didn't do enough to ensure their safety.
The boat overturned yesterday near NIT ghat as it was overcrowded, no life jacket on for the people who were returning home after the event.
