COLORFUL HOLI

Holi was celebrated across the country with great fervor and enthusiasm, it has a special place across all people and is above the religions and classes. People from almost every religion and sect celebrate and look forward to this festival of colors.

Here I dare to share with you all a few moments with you so that you can also have a feel as to what’s happening in this part of the world, hope you will like it.

The beginning is marked with the lighting of HOLIKA a bonfire which is supposed to spread a good light and remove the evil  in the dark. People also offer prayers by walking around it and offering colours and sweets.

The next day marks the celebration of colours wherein people put colours on each other and also hug each other as a tradition.

I wanted to share the colourful day with you all, will come back next year with some really stunning pics for this occasion as could not travel this year and for these snaps I had to capture it from a distance to protect it(my camera) from the people.

Have a great weekend and may you all have a colourful life too 🙂 Stay Blessed Hugs and Kisses….
