There is an incredible zeal of celebration in the heart because Holi is around the corner. It is an Indian festival which is also known as the “festival of colours” or the “festival of love”. Holi signifies the victory of good over evil. It signifies the arrival of spring, end of winter bringing in the air the fragrance of flowers and aura of warmth and happiness.  The festival is not only celebrated in India but also in Nepal and some countries across the globe.

Holi is the time of fun and frolic, eating and celebrating together the different colours of life. Sweets, flowers, and color add to the sacredness of the festival. It brings in a sense of togetherness, freedom, and connectivity. The oneness in the hearts and warmth removes misunderstandings if any and ushers in a feeling of friendliness, love joy and bliss.

In spite of being the festival of colors, there are various aspects of Holi. The festival adds significance to our lives in many ways. Ranging from socio-cultural, religious to biological there is every reason why we must heartily enjoy the festival and cherish the reasons for its celebrations.


Holi helps to bring the society together and strengthen the secular fabric of our country.  On this day people do not differentiate between the rich and poor. Everybody celebrates the festival together with a spirit of bonhomie and brotherhood.

It is interesting to note that the festival of Holi is significant for our lives and body in many other ways than providing joy and fun. The way Holi is celebrated in the south, the festival also promotes good health. For, the day after the burning of Holika people put ash (Vibhuti) on their forehead and they would mix Chandan (sandal paste) with the young leaves and flowers of the Mango tree and consume it to promote good health.

Holi is the apt time to break the ice, renew relationships, add new learnings to life and link yourself with those that you wanted to with a bit of colour.” – Anonymous
