How do we Celebrate Holi ?

In today’s times bollywood and Indian diaspora outside India continue to popularise this colourful festival internationally , one cannot deny the atmosphere of social merriment it creates.

People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and let go of their worries. It is such a colorful sight to see the young and old alike are covered with colors. People sing, dance and play with colors by throwing them on each other and celebrate their unity in diversity.
