Holi - Indias festival of colors
Holi, the colorful spring festival, is one of India's most important festival. It is also a celebration of the victory of good over evil. On the eve of the celebration, a huge bonfire is lit and people sing and dance around it. The fire is symbolic of the destruction of evil demons in Hindu mythology. Environmentalists, however, are not pleased about the fires.
Holi is a celebration of colors. Generously dousing themselves and others in colored powder, people celebrate it to welcome spring and show thanks for good harvests. It is celebrated on the last full moon in February or March especially in the north, west and eastern parts of the country.
In Barsana, a city in the state of Uttar Pradesh, sticks are used in Holi celebrations. The men sing songs to provoke the women. And the women charge at the men playfully with the sticks and pretend to hit them. Everyone in India comes together to celebrate Holi. People visit friends and relatives and smear each other with colorful powders. People enjoy a feast of sweets and snacks. In many parts of the country, adults drink bhang, an intoxicating drink made from the leaves and flowers buds of the cannabis plant mixed with milk.
MTPL wishes you all a very happy and colorful Holi
