Holi - Festival of Colours


HOLI DATES : 27 Mar 2013, 17 Mar 2014 & 27 Mar 2015.

Origins of the festival are traced to an event in Hindu mythology when the she-demon Holika tries by trickery to burn Prahlad, a young devotee of God Vishnu, the Preserver. However, by divine intervention, Prahlad remains unscathed and Holika herself is destroyed. The story represents the triumph of devotion and says that all who have faith in the divine will be forever protected.

The festival of Holi is one of the most important events in the Indian cultural calendar. It coincides with the crop harvest season and marks the onset of summer. An occasion to embrace friendship and happiness, letting go all negatives and enmities.

At the village : Revelers mix water with coloured powder (signifying brightness and cheer) and flung this on each other. Festivities are accompanied by the beating of traditional drums and enacting mythological stories through music and dance.

You are attired in pure white to begin with, and then the riot of colour takes over !
