Holi is a two-day festival starting with Holika Dahan on the first and later, the next day as Holi. Holika Dahan is celebrated by piling dried cow dung cakes, woods, and specific food in the pyre. The pyre is lit after the sunset signifies the ritual of victory of good over evil.
On the next day, it is the Holi (the day of color). People celebrated by smudging powdered colors (gulal or abeer) on each other followed by sprinkling colored water. There are different types of delicacies prepared for the occasion like puran-puri, gujjia, malpua, dahi-bhalle and many more things and thandai in drinks.
In the evening after getting cleaned everyone visits their friend’s and relatives houses with sweets and put the powdered color on their feet out of sheer respect. Holi is somewhat like meditation. The process of awakening of subtle central energy (also known as chakras) and removing the evil from inside. Just like the correspondence of colors in the spectrum of light around us.
Wishing you a Very Happy Holi!
