On Wednesday, 8th March, Hindus around the world will celebrated Holi, the festival of colours. Holi is a fun festival which celebrates the eternal and divine love of god Radha Krishna. The day also signifies the triumph of good over evil.
Celebrations begin on the night before Holi. People gather and perform religious rituals in front of a bonfire. The next morning, people smear and drench each other with paint and coloured water, with anyone and anyplace being considered fair game. People often carry drums and other musical instruments, going from place to place, singing and dancing. Throughout the day people visit family, and friends and foes come together to chat, enjoy food and drink.
