A Festival Of Colors…

Here we go again. The festival of colors aka Holi is here.

The time of being colored in red blue pink has come. With the onset of spring, India gets into the colorful mood of Holi. This festival also denotes celebration due to good harvests. This colorful festival also celebrates the eternal love of Radha and Krishna. This festival is celebrated in a grand style in the city of Mathura and Vrindavan. These are two important cities which are deeply associated to Lord Krishna.

Kids and adults come out of their house and smear each other with bright shades of gulal. Colorful waters are sprinkled on people and kids are found playing with pichkari and water balloons. People exchange sweets, Thandai and snacks among neighbors and friends. Popular Holi sweets are Gujiya, Ladoo, Burfi and Imarti etc. Indian festive celebration is incomplete without delicious sweets.

People also dance in the beats of Holi songs and popular music. Exchange gifts, snack hampers, dry fruits and greeting cards are also found.

The time of celebration is upon us. Celebrate happiness, celebrate joy and most of all celebrate holi.

So from all of us here from the Orahi family, we wish you Happy Holi….
