Holi, also known as the festival of colours, is a religious occasion celebrated with much pomp. It is considered the second biggest Hindu festival after Diwali, and the celebrations last for two days – Choti Holi or Holika Dahan and hulandi or Rangwali Holi. It marks the celebration of the victory of good over evil. The festival falls in the Hindu calendar month of Phalgun, which usually falls between February and March. On this day, people play with colours, water, flowers and more, children and adults smear Gulal on each other, and people seek the blessings of their elders. People visit their friends and relatives and also relish Holi delicacies like gujiya, thandai and more after playing Holi.
I like pointing out big holidays like this. Especially when we in the west have essentially NO IDEA about the holidays and goings on elsewhere. 1.4 million Indians are celebrating today. Smearing colors all over each other and eating good food. And we were in North and South America . . . might be nursing a hangover due to a livelier than expected St. Patty’s Day.
But when there are that many human batteries humming in the same general direction, there is an energy. And I would like to know and be a part of it. So Happy Holi
