In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colourful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colours (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colours on each other.
The colour, noise and entertainment that accompanies the celebration of Holi bears witness to a feeling of oneness and sense of brotherhood. The festival brings home the lesson of spiritual and social harmony!!
Looking forward to seeing you!
