A time to celebrate colours of life!
Hindus all around the world are celebrating Holi this week. Holi- the festival of colours is as much a religious festival as a harvesting celebration. Holi marks the beginning of the spring season in India commemorating fertile land and good harvests. There are many instances in the Hindu mythology also which mark the Holi festival. The demon king's sister Holika was burnt on this day while trying to burn Prahlad - a devout follower of Lord Vishnu. Holi also celebrates divine love of Radha for lord Krishna and is celebrated for 16 days in places related to Lord Krishna's childhood.
