An Infuse Of Colors In Air – Its Holi!!
Holi is famous as Basant Utsav in rural India. It is one of the major festivals in India and is celebrated with extreme enthusiasm and joy. Gulal, gujiya and pichkaris are synonymous with the festival. Elaborate plans are made to colour the loved ones. Everybody wants to be the first one to colour the other. In the ensuing battle of colors, everybody is drowned not just in colours of gulal but also in love and mirth. People love to drench others and themselves in coloured water. Gujiyas and other sweets are offered to everyone who comes across to colour.
Temples are beautifully decorated at the time of Holi. Idol of Radha is placed on swings and devotees turn the swings singing devotional Holi songs. Now-a-days small plays are organized reflecting the spirit of the festival.
What is remarkably same across the country is the spirit of Holi. Fun, frolic, boisterousness to the extent of buffoonery marks this festival of colours. What more can be expected- when the people get a social sanction to get intoxicated on the bhang, open not just their hearts’ out but also their lungs. And viola, nobody is expected to take offense too, as it is happy holi!
