Festival of colors... holi.

...may colors of Holi bring happiness and prosperity in life...lets celebrate and be thankful to God!

The festival of Holi can be regarded as a celebration of the Colors of Unity & Brotherhood - an opportunity to forget all differences and indulge in unadulterated fun. It has traditionally been celebrated in high spirit without any distinction of cast, creed, color, race, status or sex. It is one occasion when sprinkling colored powder ('gulal') or colored water on each other breaks all barriers of discrimination so that everyone looks the same and universal brotherhood is reaffirmed. This is one simple reason to participate in this colorful festiva

Holi' comes from the word 'hola', meaning to offer oblation or prayer to the Almighty as Thanksgiving for good harvest. Holi is celebrated every year to remind people that those who love God shall be saved and they who torture the devotee of God shall be reduced to ashes a la the mythical character Holika.

Colourful Holi is really a wonderful experience for all, although I don't like greenery to be harmed/destroyed.

I wish you all a "Green Holi" which Lord Shri Krishna and Sakhees used to enjoy.

JAI SHRI KRISHNA.
