Holi-Festival Of Colours is a popular Hindu spring festival observed in India.
On the first day, bonfires are lit at night to signify burning the demoness Holika, Hiranyakashipu's sister.

On the second day, known as Dhulendi, people spend the day throwing coloured powder and water on each other. The spring season during which the weather changes, is believed to cause viral fever and cold. Thus, the playful throwing of the coloured powders has a medical significance. The colours are traditionally made of Neem, Kumkum, Haldi and other medicinal herbs. A special drink called Thandai is prepared on this day.

Rangapanchami occurs after a few days (fifth day of the full moon) making the end of the festivities involving colours.

This festival unites the separated beings, rejoins the broken hearts, removes the internal & external differences and clears the mutual misunderstandings. This festival, being a pleasant occasion of renewed love & friendship, is celebrated with fun gaiety and reverence. These transient colours of Holi are symbolic of everlasting RANG!!

So, guys what are you waiting for.....Get started for this fun filled holi.

Wish You All A Happy Holi. May this festival of colours bring many more colours and happiness in your lives!!!
