Bura naa mano, Holi hain! The festival of colours is here and it's time to smear your loved ones with gulaal in all the colours you can get hold of! This holiday is all about savouring the gujiya, gulping down thandai and dancing to some good old holi songs. There are variations of the festival too. The Lathmar Holi in Nandgaon, Barsana near Mathura took place on Sunday and the widows of Vrindavan playing with colours on the occasion just a couple of days ago, followed by pictures of the famous Dol Jaatra in Santiniketan from Thursday, March 1, a day that is also known as Choti Holi.
The two days celebrated as Holi have a lot of mythological significance as well. The first day is Holika Dahan, signified as the victory of good over evil and the second day is Badi Holi or Dhulandi, is said to mark the welcoming of spring and a festival of harvest among farmers.
Let's all come together and celebrate Holi with laughter and mirth and colour the world in many a vibrant shade.
