Wish you a very happy and Colorful #HOLI !!!

India and the Indian diaspora are celebrating the festival of colours — Holi —- that marks the end of winters and the beginning of spring — on Thursday.

Celebrations began a night before on Wednesday with Holika Dahan, wherein people perform religious rituals in front of a bonfire and pray for the destruction of evil, just the way Holika, the sister of the demon king Hiranyakashipu, was killed in the fire.

On Holi or Rangpanchami, people smear each other with colours and hurl water balloons and also gorge on lip-smacking delicacies such as Gujiya, Mathri, Dahi Bhalle, Alu Poori, Thandai, among others. It is believed that Krishna used to celebrate the festival with colours at Vrindavan and Gokul.
