Happy Holi!

I wish all the people on planet earth a very happy Holi! India is celebrating 'Holi' - the festival of colors today!

The colorful festival of Holi is celebrated on Phalgun Purnima which comes in February end or early March. Holi festival has an ancient origin and celebrates the triumph of 'good' over 'bad'.

The colorful festival bridges the social gap and renew sweet relationships. On this day, people hug and wish each other 'Happy Holi'.

Holi celebration begins with lighting up of bonfire on the Holi eve. Numerous legends & stories associated with Holi celebration makes the festival more exuberant and vivid. People rub 'gulal' and 'abeer' on each others' faces and cheer up saying, "bura na maano Holi hai". Holi also gives a wonderful chance to send blessings and love to dear ones wrapped in a special Holi gift.

This is one festival which adds color to our lives in India and is a great festival which makes people come together.

And with India winning against Pakistan in the Hockey World Cup last night, Indians have something more to celebrate today!!!

Happy Holi!
