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….
As the Sun sets the Holi festival will be marked with the Holika Bonfire and the entire nation will be playing colors tomorrow. It is played for a longer duration in some parts of the country like Mathura which is associated with Lord Krishna.
People from all ages will be drenched in color and it is hard to recognise faces. It is difficult task thereafter to remove the colors once you are back home.
In the evening people visit their friends and family and have a get together and enjoy traditional delicacies like Gujia. Special thanks to all people who worked round during this festive time too and enable us to enjoy the festival.
