the festival of colours. It is celebrated all
over India mainly by the Hindus. It takes place
in the spring. It is celebrated because Holika
had a boon given by Lord Shiva that she will
never burn in fire. But when she sat on fire
with Prahlad, he was alive but Holika was burnt
due to Prahlad's love for god.
In this festival children enjoy themselves very much. They play with colour, 'abeer', 'pichkaris', water pistols, balloons, etc. In the meantime their elders cook delicious meal of delectable gastronomic food. In Santiniketan Holi or Doljatra is celebrated every year in a very big way.
This day is a great favourite for children. Most people enjoy and love Holi very much! It is a lot of fun. Holi is also my favourite festival.
