Happy Holi – 2015

Standard

Holi is a spring festival also known as the festival of colours or the festival of love. It is an ancient religious festival which has become popular among non-Hindus also. Holi celebrations start with Holika bonfire on the night before Holi where they sing, dance and play. The next day morning, people chase and colour each other with dry colour powder and coloured water, some carry water guns filled with coloured water and some with ballons filled with coloured water. People visit friends, family and foes to throw colours on each other, laugh, chit-chat, then share food and drinks.

The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive and repair ruptured relationships. As a food blogger I am sharing two recipes…
