Holi is a popular ancient Hindu festival. Based on mythology, it signifies the triumph of good over evil. Based on seasons, Holi celebrates the arrival of spring and the end of winter. It marks the beginning of new harvest season. Flowers, trees start blooming and nature becomes colourful.
Holi is celebrated on full moon night of Phalguna. People light large bonfires. They get together around the bonfire, pray for social wellbeing and peace and offer coconut to the fire. This custom represents the end of evil, cruel tendencies. The next day is celebrated with colors. This festival involves smearing each other with colours irrespective of their social stature, caste and creed and thus, emphasizes equality among the people. This festival is celebrated through- out the country. In some regions, colours are replaced by dirt. The methods may differ from region to region, but the essence remains the same. The simple logic behind these traditions is to make way for all bad emotions so that only the positive and good ones stay with us.
