The most vibrant of colorful
Indian Festivals is here...
 
 
 
 
The festival of Holi is celebrated on the day after the full moon in early March every year
 
 
The color of holi hides immense love and happiness in it,it brings people from over the society together to have fun and share laughter.
 
 
 
 
The time of early spring...New Warmth in the season and start of Indian new year just few days earlier with start of phagun
 
 
 
 
 
It is the day  of colorful transformation of landscape to reflect vibrancy of Life itself
 
 
 
 
Whole of northern India cuts loose for a day of laughter and general hilarity.

.

 
Holi is  symbolic commemoration of a legend from Hindu Mythology. The story centers around an arrogant king who resents his son Prahlada worshiping Lord Vishnu. He attempts to kill his son but fails each time. Finally, the king's sister Holika who is said to be immune to burning, sits with the boy in a huge fire. However, the prince Prahlada emerges unscathed, while his aunt burns to death. Holi commemorates this event from mythology, and huge bonfires are burnt on the eve of Holi as its symbolic representation.
 
 
 
This exuberant festival is also associated with the immortal love of Krishna and Radha, and hence, Holi is spread over 16 days in Vrindavan as well as Mathura - the two cities with which Lord Krishna shared a deep affiliation. Apart from the usual fun with colored powder and water, Holi is marked by vibrant processions which are accompanied by folk songs, dances and a general sense of abandoned vitality.
 


Today Holi is an excuse for Indians to shed inhibitions and caste differences for a day of spring fever and Big Fun. Teenagers spend the day flirting and misbehaving in the streets, adults extend the hand of peace, and everyone chases everyone else around, throwing brightly colored powder (gulal) and water over each other.
 

The festival's preamble begins on the night of the full moon. Bonfires are lit on street corners to cleanse the air of evil spirits and bad vibes, and to symbolize the destruction of the wicked Holika, for whom the festival was named. The following morning, the streets fill with people running, shouting, giggling and
splashing.
 
 
 
Promptly at noon, the craziness comes to an end and everyone heads to either the river or the bathtub, then inside to relax the day away and partake of Gujia and other sweets. In the afternoon an exhausted and contented silence falls over India.
 

 

This Holi Lets all Forget gloom and enmity and get drenched in color of love and happiness.
 
 
 
Lets all Celebrate
 
 
 
 
Please be safe and respect others and enjoy.....
