A Festival Of Colours

In the Hindu community, people of all ages and genders enthusiastically participate in the festival of colours. This festival of colours marks an end to the long winter season. In the Hindu calendar, Holi is celebrated on March 8, with Chhoti Holi on March 7 this year.

The Beginning Of Energies

This festival occurs during the Phalguna month during the full moon of spring. Holi, like Diwali, is about letting go of grudges and negative energies to begin anew.

The Rituals Of Bonfires

Gujiya and bhang are also special Holi foods. It is believed that 'Rangwali Holi' will be preceded by a festival called 'Holika Dahan', in which people worship a demon named Holika and perform rituals around a bonfire.

Sitting Him Down With A Trick

The king began to torture Prahlada, tricking him into sitting on a pyre by Holika, Prahlada's aunt. Prahlada was then punished by his aunt Holika, who tricked the boy into sitting on a pyre so that he could worship the king.

The Divine Is Commemorated.

As a commemoration of the divine love between Krishna and Radha, the festival is celebrated in India's Braj region until Rang Panchmi, where Krishna is believed to have grown up.

Mother-Son Conversation

During a playful conversation with his mother about Krishna's complexion, she told him that Radha would be fine with him the way he is and that he could even ask her to paint her face and any colour she desires.

Part Of An Understanding

At this point, Radha and Krishna became one and became understood as being part of one another since the colour on Radha's face reflected on Radha's.
